Diggin Deep takes you down into the mines to help Vikings find gold and other precious gems. You're introduced to this game by Viking miners hammering away at a stone wall with their pick-axes, and even their heads. The hope is that the miners hit paydirt, and they'll share their gold with you.
Is this 5-reel, 20-payline game gold? Find out as we discuss Diggin Deep's symbols, atmosphere, betting, bonuses, and offer our final take.
Symbols and Theme
This game's symbols include: a lantern, pick-axe, hammer, wooden cart, shovel, gems, and a bucket of gold.
The Viking miner is an expanding wild, while a green goblin serves as the wild symbol. Other special symbols include a crate (bonus), gears (free spins), and gold bars (bonus).
The background in this game is exactly what you'd expect, a mine full of stone and wooden planks. You'll also see a happy miner standing off to the right side. Overall, we really like the look and feel of the background graphics.
The symbols look even better, featuring rich 3D graphics that give this game a quality cartoon feel. The animations are also good, including the Viking miner, who turns into an expanding wild and runs down the mine shaft.
Diggin Deep features flexible betting options since you can change your coin size from $0.01 to $0.25, and adjust your paylines from 1 to 20. Given that you only have to bet one cent per line, we recommend playing every payline at $0.20 per spin.
Other options include the ability to Autoplay the reels, and make a Max Bet (all 20 paylines).
Diggin Deep Special Features and Bonuses
Aside from the graphics, the best thing about Diggin Deep is the features. For starters, the miner becomes an expanding wild who multiplies wins 1x in the main game, 2x during free spins, and 3x during the Dig for Gold Super Round.
As mentioned before, the gears give you free spins when they land 3 or more times on the reels. You'll receive 10 free spins for 3 symbols, 25 spins for 4 symbols, and 50 free games for 5 symbols.
When you land 3 or more crate symbols anywhere on the reels, you trigger the Pick a Crate bonus. The miner will turn on the conveyor belt, and you pick one of the 3 creates to reveal your prize.
The most-exciting bonus is the Dig for Gold Super Round, which is triggered by 3 or more gold bars anywhere on the reels. This takes you to a second screen, where you start at the top and click the purple dirt to begin digging your way into the mine. The further you get into the mine, the better your chances are of finding gold and gems.
Diggin Deep Mobile Slots
Keep in mind that this slot is available on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices at online casinos with Rival Gaming software.
Based on the graphics and features, we recommend that you try this game. Regarding the graphics, all of the symbols offer rich color and detail, while the background also looks solid. The features are highlighted by the Dig for Gold Super Round, which plays like a video game as you dig for precious metals.
Our only complaint is that the idea of digging for gold is cliché for a slot, even if it does have a Viking angle. But based on the presentation and visuals, Digging Deep offers enough to stand out from other games.
