Become a reel prospector for a day on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Initially named Gold Fever, Dynamite Riches will take you deep underground where the precious metal is waiting to be found. Your digging is aided by four explosive modifiers including random wilds, multipliers and symbol removals that can lead to wins in excess of 5,000 times your bet.
Dynamite Riches is a video slot with five reels, four rows and unusually only 20 pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can dig for the precious metal on desktop, mobile or tablet from 0.10 to 20 credits per spin. The game has maximum volatility (5/5) with an RTP of 95.70%, which is slightly below the industry average.
A sparsely-lit mine shaft serves as the background of a rather large game window with four locks and a dynamite fuse placed on top. They will indicate the feature process as you gradually unlock them. Gold nuggets shine are littered along the mine walls ready for any reel prospectors to collect. A western soundtrack with banjo notes in between is the main audio on the slot, although much of the noise comes from the exploding dynamite bundles.
All pay symbols can appear stacked on the reels. Differently coloured gemstones carved into card royals – blue diamonds, green clubs, red hearts and purple spades, are at the low end of the paytable. They are complemented by typical miner items – oil lamps, pickaxes and shovels, miners helmets and pouches with gold nuggets as well as a bearded miner. The latter is the most valuable with 15x your bet for a single five of a kind.
A dynamite bundle is the standard wild symbol while gold bars and diamond appear as additional wilds in some of the features. Hit five on a line to win 15x your stake plus they will substitute for all other pay symbols excluding scatters.
Get some earplugs as it is going to be a loud gaming session with plenty of dynamite exploding that will see the entire mine shatter. To set it off you will need to collect dynamite wilds. Each landing will burn a part of the fuse in the top right corner up to the dynamite bundle. You will need six wilds to unlock the first padlock and a further six for each of the other three. Each padlock will award one of four modifiers.
All padlocks will reset and lock again after the last of the four features has been triggered, ready to start the explosive tour again. Worth noting is that the second modifier will deliver most frequently a winning combination whereas the others can end in a no-win spin.
Hit three Gold Spins anywhere on the reels in one spin to trigger eight free spins. Any further scatter will award +2 free spins while during the feature three scatters will get you a retrigger of +4 free spins plus one extra free spins for any additional scatter. All four dynamite features are in play during the free spins.
Dynamite Riches is all you can expect from a miner-themed slot. Plenty of noise, even more gold and mega wins that can exceed 5,000 times your bet. Hitting a full screen of miner symbols with an x10 multiplier will deliver the maximum in a single spin, coming in at 3,000x your stake.
