Gold Digger Slot Review

In today's culture, I know a gold digger has a whole new meaning than what traditional gold diggers were known for, but Gold Digger is based on the latter, with a comedic little old man who has his eyes set on blasting mines in search of nuggets of gold. I knew a gold digger once, but she took me for all I was worth, and here I thought we were going on a mining expedition.


Gold Digger is a 5x3 reel, 20 payline slot powered by ISoftBetsoftware. The symbols include Royal Card Suits (J-A), Pickaxes, Lanterns, Carts of Gold, and the Gold Diggin' Gus Character Symbol. Special Symbols include the Explosion Wild and Gold Nugget Bonus Symbols that trigger the Gold Link Respins Feature. There is also a random Gold Digger Modifier Feature, and Gem Reel Boosters Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.

The Sound and Information icon is at the bottom left of the reels expanding to the Paytable, Bet, and Autoplay menus. On the right of the reels are the Autoplay, Spin, and Bet buttons. Below the reels are your Balance, Win, and Bet windows.


Features in Gold Digger include the Explosion Wild, Gold Nugget Bonus Symbols that trigger the Gold Link Respins Feature, the Gold Digger Modifier Feature, and the Gem Reel Boosters Feature.

The Explosion Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Gold Nugget Bonus and Gem Symbols, to form potential winning combinations.

The Gold Digger Modifier Feature can be triggered at random during the base game, where Gold Diggin' Gus can award 1 of the following modifiers:

Random Wilds: the dynamite stick turns 3-5 symbols Wild

Gold Nuggets: the pickaxe transforms symbols into Gold Nugget Symbols

Upgrade: the TNT detonator explodes and upgrades symbols to higher-value symbols

Land 5 or more Gold Nugget Bonus Symbols to trigger the Gold Link Respins Feature, where you will be taken to a special set of reels that only contain Gold Nugget Symbols. These symbols have different instant cash prizes attached to them. 3 spins are awarded, and the landed symbols remain on the reels until the feature ends. Each new Gold Nugget Symbol that lands reset the spins to 3. At the end of the feature, all instant cash values are added and awarded.

Unique Features

Gem Symbols can also land on the reels during the Gold Link Respins Feature. Every Gem Symbol that lands also resets the spins to 3. Collect 3 Gem Symbols of the same kind to trigger a booster:

Reels Booster: blue Gem Symbols unlock up to 3 extra rows

Values Booster: green Gem Symbols increase all instant prize values of landed Gold Nugget Symbols.

Spins+ Booster: red Gem Symbols give an extra respin.

Multiplier Booster: purple Gem Symbols increase the multiplier level up to 10x.


Gold Digger has as many features as there are gold nuggets in a gold mine that can boost your balance to gold status. However, it may take some time before striking gold. The animated graphics and design of the game are cracking. The RTP is 96% with medium-high volatility.

Max Win

The max coin win is 8230x your stake.


iSoftBet doesn't disappoint (as expected) with Gold Digger, offering a wide range of features. However, there isn't a traditional Free Spins Feature, but the Gold Link Respins Feature sure makes up for it with the inclusion of all the boosters available. The gameplay is seamless and uncomplicated that is highly entertaining. Time to find me an actual gold digger and not fall into the trap of the modern-day gold digger type.
