Happy New Year to everyone, in the casino world 2021 is already here with game announcements for the new year already here. The studio Play’n Go is back again with multiple releases every month for another year and a long list of successful releases in 2020. I have been reviewing a lot of the studio’s older games which now feel forgotten because of the frequency of releases. The last game I reviewed by Play’n Go is titled ‘Coils Of Cash‘, which offers an impressive max win of 30,000x. Today we are learning all about ‘Miner Donkey Trouble‘, set to release January 14th, 2021 across all sites.
