Drill That Gold Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

It has been a couple of days since my last Pragmatic Play slot review, this was for the game titled ‘Rainbow Gold’. Which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a Super Spins Free Spins feature. Today we are learning all about ‘Drill That Gold’, which is set to release April 7th across all sites.

In this new slot release, we are taken down underground to the mines. The game background shows off the mine cave system, with golden nuggets, saws above the reel set, and a miner character on the right side of the reel set. Low paying symbols are represented by the typical 10 – A. Then premium symbols are represented by gems, pickaxes and lanterns as examples.

Drill That Gold has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot has a set RTP of 96.45% and a max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

Drill That Gold Symbols & Pay Table

There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by pickaxes, lanterns, mine carts, gems, and a miner character. In addition to these regular symbols is a bonus symbol and a wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the miner character premium, which pays 12.5x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds appear on all reels and substitute for all symbols except the bonus scatter symbol.

Drill That Gold Features

During base game spins, whenever a fully vertical stack of miner premiums lands on a reel, it will transform into a silver drill symbol. The silver drill after expanding will transform into wilds and can reveal a random direct money award between 2x – 100x.

At the end of a spin without any win, there is a chance to trigger a random modifier to change the outcome to a win of at least 10x or enough scatters to trigger the Free Spins feature.

Landing 3 or more scatter symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Gold Spins feature. Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters will award 6, 8, or 10 free Spins. During spins, a golden drill can appear along with a silver drill. After expanding it transforms into a wild and is guaranteed to reveal a random direct money award. Money Awards are random between 5x – 1,000x. During Free Spins every time a miner premium lands it will nudge up or down to bring a full stack in view of the reel. This stack will transform into a silver or gold drill. Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters during a Free Spin will award 4, 6, 8, or 10 additional Free Spins.

There is an ‘Ante Bet’ option available. this will increase the bet multiplied by 25%. When active during base game spins all drills are golden.


Overall, I think this slot is a unique release by the studio with the exciting drill mechanics. With a max win capped at 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with money awards up to 1,000x. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
