Max Miner Slot Review
Latin is a language that you’ll probably only hear intoned at funerals, weddings, or in a courtroom (either way, you’re probably up sh*t creek without a paddle).
Thanks to these nerve-wracking associations, it’s easy to forget that this ancient Roman dialect is peppered with beauty and poetry – as we’d expect from our Italian homies.
Take “gold” for example. The symbol for this precious metal is Au, and that’s derived from the Latin word “aurum” which means “shining dawn.” How cool is that?
You know what would also be cool? Unearthing some of that shiny stuff in Gamebeat’s latest offering, Max Miner slot. Let’s see if we can make that happen.
I haven’t played a mining-themed game for a while, and I have to say that Gamebeat has crafted this one to perfection. Max Miner slot is a joy to behold on any device so if you’re a player who likes to roll in portrait mode on your phone, well you’re in for a treat!
There are 30 fixed paylines on this 5-reel grid, and the game comes with an RTP of 96.63% coupled with a high volatility rate. The max win sits at €104,250 which is a bit less than I expected, given the volatility.
Thankfully, there are no currency limitations here so feel free to try your luck with either crypto or fiat – the choice is yours.
The WILD nugget substitutes for all symbols other than the Scatter. The Scatter pays out the most, followed by the miner, pickaxe, lantern, and boots.
Land 3 or more Scatters in any position and you’ll be awarded 6 Free Spins. Three or more additional Scatters will re-trigger 6 Free Spins. When this round plays out, you won’t see any low-paying symbols on the reels, which means even bigger win opportunities.
RE-SPIN BEAT FEATURE:
The dynamite stick symbol acts as a Bonus, and 6 or more landed ones (simultaneously, that is) will give you 3 Re-spins.
Triggering dynamite symbols become sticky and stay in place while the other positions on the reels spin. Newly landed dynamite symbols will also be sticky and reset the counter to 3 Re-spins.
What you’ll also see while you’re playing, is that adjacent dynamite Bonus symbols will combine to form larger ones. When they do this, the payout will be as follows:
1x1 symbol = 1x multiplier
1x2 symbol = 2x multiplier
1x3 symbol = 4x multiplier
2x2 symbol = 5x, 8x, 10x or the Mini Jackpot
2x3 symbol = 15x, 25x, Mini or Minor Jackpot
3x2 symbols = 15x, 25x, Mini or Minor Jackpot
3x3 symbols = 50x, 80x, Minor or Major Jackpots
4x2 symbols = 30x, 40x, Mini or Minor Jackpot
4x3 symbols = 200x, 300x, Minor or Major Jackpots
5x2 symbols = 80x, 200x, Minor or Major Jackpots
5x3 symbols = Mega Jackpot
As for the value of the Jackpots, it works out like this:
Mega Jackpot = 2,000x your total bet
Major Jackpot = 500x your total bet
Minor Jackpot = 100x your total bet
Mini Jackpot = 20x your total bet
Gamebeat creates their slots using HTML5 technology, so things should work seamlessly across all devices – but is that the case? Well, yes indeed! I put this game through so many spins I lost count, and it didn’t give me any hassles.
The maximum bet is €50 (the lowest is €0.10) and when that’s coupled with the 2,085x max multiplier, you’re looking at a top prize of €104,250. While that might not be the biggest purse for a high-volatility game, it still qualifies as a good day at the office, right?
Max Miner slot is a pretty chilled game that looks spectacular on any device, and that makes it a great companion for playing on the go.
It isn’t crammed with features, but those that it offers are decent. The focus is on Free Spins, multipliers, and Jackpots and there ain’t nothing wrong with that.
While many slots offer Jackpots, I like how Gamebeat has done it here – using Bonus symbols that combine into larger symbols. Would I have liked to see a bigger max win? Sure, but a hundred grand isn’t chicken feed, so I wouldn’t call this a dealbreaker.
