Christmas Gold Digger slot REVIEW

Christmas Gold Digger ReviewWe have allowed ourselves to be charmed by the golden-tooth prospector, Gus, in several installments already, and he is a charmer in his Santa outfit as well. Christmas Gold Digger is basically a reskin of the original Gold Digger, so players expecting something new might be disappointed. You get the exact same features and math model, but with an Xmas decorated presentation.

The original game hasn’t really become a lasting success story for iSoftBet, and the same can be said about the more recent Gold Digger Megaways. It’s a bit strange, really, as both are solid installments in a popular genre. This Xmas reskin is par for the course, and it comes with 3 random base game modifiers. You get 4 different upgrade possibilities in the Hold & Win Bonus Round, and the max win is still 8,230x your stake.

Christmas Gold Digger Slot Features

The premium symbols pay between 5 and 25 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and the wild symbol steps in for pay symbols to help complete wins. The prospector, Gus, can trigger 3 different features at random times, as follows:

Random Wilds - a dynamite is thrown onto the grid, and it turns 3 to 5 symbols wild.

Symbol Upgrade - the TNT detonator is activated by Gus, and this upgrades a random number of symbols to higher value symbols.

Gold Nuggets - a pickaxe is thrown to transform a random amount of symbols into gold nuggets. This can help trigger the bonus round.

The Gold Hold & Win Respins bonus round triggers when 5+ gold nugget symbols are present at the same time (1 in 175 spins hit rate). You get 3 respins for starters, and the triggering gold nuggets become sticky on an otherwise cleared grid. Each gold nugget carries a random cash prize, and there are 4 bonus meters above the grid. Each meter comes with 3 empty slots, and these are filled by special symbols to upgrade the bonus round in different ways as follows:

Reels Boosted - collect 3 blue gems to unlock 1 of 3 extra rows.

Values Boosted - collect 3 green gems to increase the value of all present gold nuggets.

Spins+ Boosted - collect 3 red gems to get +1 extra respin so the tally resets to 4.

Multiplier Boosted - collect 3 purple gems to increase the win multiplier up to x10.

You get to see a few modifiers from Gus, and the second one helped us trigger the Hold & Win Respins round. This happens around 1:11 into the 5-minute highlights video, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.

Review Summary

As many developers do when the Xmas season is drawing close, iSoftBet has churned out a Christmas decorated reskin of a previous release. Christmas Gold Digger comes with the same features and the same math model as the original game, but you get to see Gus the one-toothed prospector with a Santa outfit. His action commentary is also Xmas-related, and that’s about it.

It’s a cozy game in many ways, and the original is a tad underestimated in our view. Perhaps this Xmas version can do something about that, but then again, perhaps not. You get 3 decent base game modifiers, and the Hold & Win bonus round comes with some pretty neat modifiers as well. The 8,230x potential is pretty solid as well, and you can do a lot worse than this when it comes to Xmas slots.

If you enjoy Christmas Gold Digger Slot you should also try:

Gold Digger - is the original release from iSoftBet, and it comes with similar visuals minus the Xmas stuff. The base game is livened up by Gus’ 3 modifiers, and the hold and win style bonus round comes with the same 4 upgrade possibilities as the game at hand. The 8,230x potential is also the same.

Gold Digger Megaways - is the dynamic grid follow-up release from iSoftBet, and you can play with up to 117,649 ways to win. There are 4 different base game modifiers in this version, and the hold and win bonus round comes with 5 different modifiers. The max win is 22,508x (or 28,821x via Gold Bet).

Santa Express - is StakeLogic’s Xmas contribution, and it plays out on a 5x4 grid where wilds are generated after each cascading win. The wild multiplier increases per cascade as well, up to x10 at the most. You get a random multiplier in the bonus round, and this can lead to payouts up to 20,000x your stake.
