About Gold Digger MEGAWAYS
Released by the developers iSoftBet, the Gold Digger MEGAWAYS slot is the second Gold Digger Miner and this one uses the MEGAWAYS mechanic which is licensed by Big Time Gaming. The max win in this sequel is quite a bit higher than the original game with up to 28,821x the stake max wins possible. There are six reels on the grid while the rows can change from between two and seven with every spin.
Because of the MEGAWAYS feature, there can be as many as 117,649 ways to win. Wins occur when at least three matching symbols connect from left to right on adjacent reels starting from the first reel. When you do make a win, the contributing symbols are removed and new symbols drop down to replace them. If this the leads to another win, the process is repeated until no new wins are formed.
The game has a mining theme like others we have seen before such as Gold n Rocks. The star of the show is Gold Diggin’ Gus and we join him down the mine shaft in the search for gold. This game has very similar graphics to the original, and you will find the prospector to the left of the reels enjoying a cigar and ready to blow things up. There is a banjo style soundtrack that keeps the action moving along nicely.
The symbols of the game include ace, king, queen and jack playing card royals. We also have higher value symbols inhabiting the reels. These are lanterns, pick axes, mining carts full of gold and prospector Gus himself. Gold Diggin’ Gus is the highest value symbol, paying out 25x your bet for as many as six in a winning combo. There is also a dynamite wild symbol that only appears on the top row and substitutes for all other symbols except the golden nugget, which is the game’s scatter.

Gold Digger MEGAWAYS Bonus Features
There is the Mining Modifier feature where, during the base game, the feature can be randomly activated to award you with various bonuses. These include the Max MEGAWAYS feature where you will play with the maximum of up to 117,649 ways to win. You could be awarded the Mystery Blast feature where reels are loaded with mystery TNT symbols that Gus explodes to reveal one random symbol. Or it could be the Boomer Bonus Add feature in which case Gus will fetch his dog Boomer to add a golden nugget to trigger the main feature. Gus will also fetch his best friend if you get awarded the Boomer Lose to Win feature, but this time, Boomer will give you a winning spin or trigger a feature.
The Gold Hold & Win Respins feature activates when five or more golden nugget scatters land anywhere on the reels. Three respins are awarded and each of the triggering gold nuggets will display a cash multiplier prize that can be as high as 20x your stake. Any new golden nuggets will also be carrying cash prizes and reset the amount of respins back to three.
Reel Booster Gems can also land on the reels to gift various coloured gems. This could be the Blue Gem that adds a new space on its reel until it reaches the top of the mine. There is also a Green Gem that boosts nugget values on any reel it lands on to the next best value. Should you get a Red Gem, you will pick up an extra respin with up to three available. Lastly, there is a Purple Gem that will deliver a boost to the multiplier by 1x every time and comes into action at the end of the feature.
With the Boomer’s Boost feature, Gus’ dog Boomer can randomly be summoned to add extra nuggets or boosters. This will either bring you more respins or increase your winning potential, and when you have used up your respins, you can collect your payout. Finally, there is the opportunity to land Mini, Major and Mega golden nuggets which are worth 25x, 50x and 100x the stake respectively.
