With collapsing reels and increasing multipliers, this gold rush themed slot is graphic heavy but hides enough jewels in it’s pockets to be tempting. It’s just a shame that we’ve been here before.
As with any BetSoft mobile slot, be prepared to wait a little to download the bonus features the first time they arrive and make sure you are connected to some good WiFi. Otherwise you might find yourself frustrated at the slow load and the jerky game play. That said, it does look and sound pretty nice, working beautifully as an Android slot or an iPad / iPhone slot.
Unlike so many BetSoft slot games out there, at least More Gold Diggin’ mobile slot’s symbols are simple and clear to understand. Each of the blocks represents a precious metal, from silver and gold, to bronze, oil and… green… bubbly… rock? Something you find in a gold digging cave no doubt. The TNT barrels and dynamite sticks for the wild symbols work great, though we can’t help but wonder if the slot symbols couldn’t have been a little more thought out.
They are easy to spot on a winning payline sure, but they lack character and fun. But that’s a personal choice perhaps, prospecting has never been our favourite of themed slots.
If you’ve ever played Rook’s Revenge by Betsoft, or the far superior original NetEnt slot Gonzo’s Quest, then you’ll recognise the game play and idea behind More Gold Diggin’. If not, read the features below on ‘cascading reels’.
It’s a tried and tested slot feature and it works. Players love it, we love it, it brings excitement to every spin. You don’t even notice that it takes 100 spins or so to get the free spins or that you don’t get much from the free spins themselves, walking away with only about 10x your bet.
That’s not to say that good wins aren’t hiding in these 5 reels. You can win up to 40 thousand in cash if you get really lucky, but this mobile slot machine is really on the lower to mid variance scale, giving you plenty of little 3 symbol wins, whilst the 5 symbol wins come very rarely. Still, when they come they can make a real difference to your budget, but much like the prospectors of old, hitting one is the equivalent of coming home with a gold mine. And guess how many actually did?
One for the more conservative player who doesn’t like risk, but enjoys the thought of maybe winning something big.

Wilds: The three dynamite sticks are the wild symbol, replacing all other symbols in the reels except the TNT barrels. Though this symbol only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, worry not, we've seen it show up often enough to make a difference.
Collapsing / Exploding / Cascading reels: For every winning payline, the winning symbols disappear and collapse, with more symbols being replaced from the top of the reels, giving you extra chance for bigger wins. On each collapse, the multiplier increases per win, up to 5x your win on a base game and 15x your win during the free spins.
Free Spins: No scatters, you'll need 3 TNT barrels on reels 1, 2 and 3 to trigger 10 free spins. Only ten we hear you cry? Yes indeed, but don't forget those collapsing reels, giving you 'free goes' on each win. Makes all the difference during the free spins, and with the bigger multipliers you'll be looking to hit the x15 symbol to walk away with some real gold.
Has it been done before? Yes. Has it been done better... well, yes. Still, if we only played completely original mobile slots we would only have less than a handful to play on, so sometimes you have to look at the copies and appreciate the little differences it can bring to your day.
A good addition to the BetSoft mobile slot portfolio, just remember to watch your budget on this one as the RTP is very low at 93.66%.
