Looking at Play'n GO's New Miner Donkey Trouble Slot

Play'n GO's new slot, Miner Donkey Trouble, is chock-full of features and has a huge maximum payout of 10,000x the stake.

Play’n GO’s upcoming slot, Miner Donkey Trouble, doesn’t just offer a clever play on words but an adventure that can lead to a maximum payout of 10,000x the bet. In the slot, the miner and his loyal donkey, Trouble, are trapped in an abandoned mine full of hidden gems. Players are invited to help them out and help themselves to some treasures along the way. Miner Donkey Trouble can be played at Play’n GO online casinos.

Slot Specs

Miner Donkey Trouble is a 5x7 cluster pays slot that’s playable on all devices. Bets range from $.10 to $100 and the slot rates 8 out of 10 on the developer’s volatility scale. The default RTP is solid at 96.27%.

As a cluster pays slot, wins are scored when 5 or more matching symbols connect adjacently. When a winning cluster is formed, the symbols disappear and make room for new ones to cascade down. Standard symbols include low-paying rocks and high-paying gems of different colors.

Special Symbols & Base Game Features

There are lots of special symbols and base game features in this slot, so buckle up. Golden nugget symbols are one example — they have no value of their own, but when they get to the bottom row of the grid, they are removed and the win multiplier increases by 1. The multiplier resets at the start of each new spin (not counting cascades).

There is also a pick-axe symbol that has no value and only lands in cascades, not original spins. These symbols get removed from the reels and are collected as part of the Pick-axe Wild feature, which is activated at the end of a win sequence. The Pick-axe Wild feature adds 4 to 10 diamond wilds to the grid.

When the dynamite scatter lands on the grid, the Dynamite Explosion feature is triggered. In this feature, the dynamite explodes and blows nearby symbols off the grid (not including special symbols). Diamond wilds land in their empty places.

When a win is scored, the Donkey Destruction Meter on the left side of the grid gets filled. When it gets to 18 symbols, all rock symbols on the grid are destroyed. When the meter gets to 40 symbols, all gem and rock symbols are destroyed. When 50 symbols are in the meter, all symbols are destroyed except for golden nuggets, plus, 5 extra nuggets are guaranteed.

On a non-winning spin, the Random Mega Symbol can come into play, which means a 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 version of a standard symbol is added to the reels.

Free Spins

When 3 dynamite scatters land on the reels, the Free Spins round is activated. During this feature, golden nugget multipliers don’t reset in between spins. Golden nugget multipliers that are active when the round is triggered will be carried into it.

Bottom Line

Miner Donkey Trouble is chock-full of features and has a huge maximum payout of 10,000x the stake. The good-natured action in this game makes it appealing to players with varying interests, and the vast betting range makes it accessible to both low-rollers and high-rollers.
