About Gold Rush
It’s time to head down the mine shaft and dig out the teasures in the Gold Rush slot from Pragmatic Play. Down that shaft you will find some gold nugget covered playing cards from ace all the way down to ten, as well as axes crossed with spades, a lamp, a pit pony and a cart full of gold. There is also a grinning bearded prospector who is the most rewarding symbol in the game. Catch him three, four or five times in the same spin and you can unlock a reward of 1x, 8x or 20x your total stake.
The game uses wilds which come in the form of sticks of dynamite which can replace all other symbols apart from the tunnel scatter. These tunnel scatter can only land on reels two, three and four but if you do manage to catch at least three on the middle three reels in the same spin you can look forward to some free spins. In general play, wins are awarded when you combine three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels from the leftmost reel onwards.

Gold Rush Bonus Features
The free spins bonus round is triggered when you land three scatter symbols on reels two, three and four in a single spin of the reels. Doing this will deliver 10 free spins and an extra symbol will be added to the reels for the duration of the bonus round. This extra symbol is a golden nugget and every time one of these lands, it is added to the meter that is situated above the reels. The more gold nuggets you collect, the more you advance in the value levels of the prospector symbols. In all, there are four levels to progress.
These are; Level 1: 0-4 nuggets (3 extra miners), Level 2: 5-9 nuggets (5 extra miners), Level 3: 10-14 nuggets (9 extra miners) and Level 4: 15+ nuggets (11 extra miners). During the bonus round, every time a scatter lands, two or more free spins are added to your total. Another extra free spin will be awarded should you advance a level on your final free spin.
