About PayDirt Slot Machine
PayDirt is an awesome online slot machine with a few special features that set it apart from most progressive slots. Number one is the ability to release the progressive jackpot without betting maximum paylines. The progressive jackpot is randomly awarded, and does not require a specific combination of reels to release.
The video sot, developed by RealTime Gaming (RTG), features 5-reels and 25-paylines. Coin denominations range from $0.01 to $5, with a max wager of 25-coins per play (one coin per payline).
PayDirt features symbols you would expect to find in the old west gold mining days. These include gold nuggets, miners, bandits, lanterns, mining carts, sifting pans, pick axes, dynamite, donkeys, the PayDirt symbol and more.
The gold Nugget is the wild symbol, and appears only in reels 2 and 4. When this symbol replaces any other symbol in a winning payout, it will triple the original payout amount. The scatter symbol, PayDirt, multiplies the players payout according to the full bet amount. 5 scatters on a single line pay 200 units.
Scatter symbols are also required to trigger Bonus Games. Get three scatter symbols to activate bonus games. When bonus rounds are triggered, the player will get to play one of three bonus features. These are all detailed below.
Bonus Round Features
When you get 3 or more scatters on the reels, a screen will pop up in which you can select from one of three PayDirt signs. The sign will reveal which bonus round is to be played:
12 Free Spins: In this bonus round, the player is given 12 free spins, where grouped gold nuggets can appear on any reel. Remember, nuggets are wilds that normally appear on reel 2 and 4 only, so players have a much higher chance of getting some winning combination during these automatic free spins.
Gold Fever: This bonus round feature only 5 free spins, but the third reel always displays all gold nuggets, the wild symbol in PayDirt.
Strike It Lucky: This is the best bonus game to hit on PayDirt. A new screen loads depicting gold mines. The player selects mines, earning symbols. The game then returns with 10 free spins available. All symbols awarded in the first phase become wild symbols throughout the 10 free spins. With just a little luck, a player can rack up a ton of credits in this PayDirt bonus game.
Special Features: The video slot features a progressive jackpot that can be triggered at random, and does not require the player to bet max to release.
