Pay Dirt is a 25-payline progressive slot operating on the RTG software platform.  Featuring the theme of the legendary Gold Rush, the game’s wild card is the Gold Nugget and the scatter is the Paydirt Sign. Players can try the slot on this page free of charge or they can go to any of the listed Real Time Gaming casinos to play the game for real money.

Prior to digging for gold, players should regulate their preferred wager. The coin denomination ranges from 0.01 to 5, which is altered by clicking the “Bet” arrows. “Lines” modifies the number of enabled paylines. To start the game, one should press “Spin” and to have the reels turn for a preset number of times, the “Au­top­lay­” button needs to be pushed.

The Gold Nugget wild card appears grouped on the 2nd and 4th reels. When 1 or more wilds emerge in a winning combination, the prize is tripled.

When 3 or more Paydirt Signs spin into the view, a pick feature is triggered. There are 3 features—Gold Rush, Strike It Lucky and Gold Fever—and selecting the Paydirt Sign reveals one of them.

The Gold Rush awards 12 Free Games, during which grouped Gold Nuggets may emerge. 2 or more scatters will re-activate another 12 Free Games.

In the Strike It Lucky feature, 5 Gold Mines are shown. Players need to select 1 to reveal a Bonus symbol.  10 Free Games are played, during which any Bonus symbol that appears is replaced with a Gold Nugget. If another set of 10 Free Games are won, they will be added to the existing number of Free Games.

The Gold Fever feature awards 5 Free Games, during which the 3rd reel consists only of Gold Nuggets. Should more Paydirt Signs appear, an extra set of 5 Free Games will be granted.

A Progressive Jackpot, which is activated at random, can be won after any game. Progressive wins are added to other wins.

A jackpot of 10,000 coins will be awarded when 5 Mines occur on an enabled payline.

Friend of mine who love to gamble in land-based casinos recently joining us in the online gambling. The first software by my choice was NetEnt..to get him in then I deposited in RTG casinos for him. And suggested pay Dirt and another video slot which name I can’t recall now. Today I need to checked if he played and I want to hear how did he liked RTG. He liked NetEnt really much. Pay Dirt is all about gold. Yellow gold dominating but don’t expect it to come out of your screen, because you will get paid if you trigger it’s bonuses. Most symbols are gold related and this is the game I love to play. I can’t recall what was casino name. If someone would ask what RTG video slots pays, anytime I would recall and recommend this game. It paid x 1000 my bet size once I played free roll tournament but I haven’t make any screenshots which makes me angry, angry at myself. However, I am very good at loosing screenshots too. I almost got to the first place with my x 1000 win. The prize was 100 euro and I make it to the second place. Since I won this, I started playing Pay Dirt more and more frequent, I can’t tell I got addicted to it but I am addicted to adrenaline just like everyone else is. Boost your adrenaline with x 1000 your bet size win and let this video slot pay you dirt!

I love Gold Rush feature, it triggers 12 free spins with x 3 multiplier. Strike it Lucky feature triggers 10 free spins and finally the coolest feature Gold Fiver which I believe can pay massive amount. Gold Nugget is wild symbol and during the Gold Fiver feature covering entire third reel. During the base game it might cover second and third reel. You can win both during the base game as well as if you trigger features.

If you are like searching for gold into some video slot machines, this game could be interesting for this purpose. Pay Dirt has 5 reels and 25 paylines and it is creation of Real Time Gaming software provider.

I played this game for a while with no deposit bonus and I like it. Into game we can find 3 different features. When you receive at least 3 scatter symbols you have to select one of this symbol and game reveal prize. Prizes are gold rush, gold fever and strike it lucky features. While I was playing I received twice gold rush and once strike it lucky.

At gold rush you receive 12 free games and during feature gold nuggets symbols can appear on any reel. You can also retrigger the feature for additional 12 free spins. When I received this feature, I was not so happy because I saw that it has no such a big potential on winnings. I won only small amounts.

I prefer strike it lucky feature which is really good one. 5 gold mines are revealed and you have to pick one gold mine to reveal bonus symbol. Additional picks may be awarded, which is great so you can have more than one extra bonus symbol. I reveal one symbol and 10 free spins started. During feature any bonus symbol which was selected will be replaced with a gold nugget symbols. On this feature I had luck and I won over x100 bet. I think this is one of the best features here, maybe gold fever could be also interesting but there you get only 5 free games with one reel wild. I think 10 free spins with replacing symbols are much more better than only 5 free spins with one wild reel.

Otherwise I like this game, the features appear quite often and I also won decent, good money on it. I will definitely play it more, because it could provide good winnings.

Pay Dirt Slot is one of my favorite RTG slot games. Pay Dirt has 25 pay-lines and 5 reels. The theme at this game is searching for gold somewhere in the west of America, I guess in the 19th century while there ruled the gold rush.

The graphics are not bad for one RTG slot. Here you have some good animations too. I really like some of the symbols here. For example, the symbol ofthe masked robber with a gun in his hand. Of course, the search for gold was a dangerous job and robbers lurked everywhere. Or a symbol where the dog is holding a nugget of gold in the teeth.

From the features, here you have primarily the wild symbol. Wild symbol sometimes cover the entire reel. Also, sometimes happen to cover several reels. This allows you to have great wins without the free spins bonus. Thanks to this feature, I've already several times had wins greater than 100 x bet. With a little luck during the free spins bonus you can earn a lot. Here, there are three types of free spins bonus. Gold Rush is a first and I would say classic free spins bonus, where you get 12 free spins.

Gold fever- here you only get 5 free spins, but so the wild symbol in these 5 free spins occupies the entire third reels. Finally, Strike It Lucky - here you get 10 free spins but 1-3 symbols become wild symbols. From my past experience, I will say that the best paid is Gold Fever and Strike It Lucky. In the Gold Rush generally you can expect small wins. But it is not a rule, also a few times I was paid well. I've spent so far dozens of hours playing this game.

Pay Dirt is almost always my choice when I'm playing in an RTG casino. For sure, an interesting video slot game that I will warmly recommend. I'm sure you'd like it. For Pay Dirt I give 9 stars.

Certainly many wondering where the name of this game, the theme deals with gold and mines where it is hidden, all of these events on the drum irresistibly reminiscent of the gold rush, dating back to 1849 when all simply crazy for the treasures of our planet. During the game you will meet many symbols associated for mining and exploitation of precious ores and sale.

I would add that the wild symbol is actually Gold nugget and it appears only in the second and fourth column and will increase your possible winning combination for even three times what it is worth the attempt to further research of hidden treasure. Paydirt Sign symbol is a scatter here triggers you gain for that you need a minimum of three of these symbols, while at the five points of symbols you've won 200 coins, and three of these Scatter also trigger an additional bonus game.

My first profit was € 5.25 in the second spin, then came a nugget of gold in the second column and together with the symbols of the coffin shut the winning line when I won around € 14. I'm often on the receiving drum and 3-4 symbols lantern but these were some significant gains. As for the symbols of lumps of gold he appeared in the second column four times and each time brought a gain of over € 10.

After over 100 games free spins I was unable to open the bonus game so that the impression is incomplete but it is the wild symbol was very generous to me during the whole game. This game I ended up with a € 17 profit which helped at least a little good damage caused after the Orc vs. Elf slot machines. I played earlier this slot but mainly when in the tournament offers Grande Vegas Casino, this is my first real money experience.

Pay Dirt is a game from Real Time Gaming software. I tried it a couple of times when I was spending a lot of time in RTG casinos but I didn't get any decent win so I didn't invest much in it. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines and it is a progressive jackpot slot, so there's a possibility to win a jackpot. To be honest, design wise this game isn't my favorite from RTG, because it has gold- mining theme and I don't really like it, but I've read that some players have great wins with it so I wanted to give this game a more serious try.

This game has free spins bonus round which starts when you get at least 3 Paydirt scatters on wherever on the reel, but so far I've got free spins only once (I got the 12 free spins) and they didn't pay me more than 4$. There is a wild symbol too. When you get the 3 or more scatters, you will have to pick one of them and in them are hidden the bonus rounds. There are 3 types of bonus rounds, but since I've got only one of them and only once I cannot tell much about it.

The last time I played was few days ago, I got a ND bonus at Liberty Bell casino and decided to use my balance on it. I placed the minimum bets which are 0.25$ and played 100 autospins. I was really waiting for a free spins round because usually with other RTG games I can get free spins round within 60-80 spins. I left my computer for a couple of minutes and when I got back, my balance was already down to 5$. I really wasn't expecting to lose that much that fast-I lost my balance of 15$ within 15 minutes- after the 100 autoplay spins, I managed to make a few more but that's it. And I wagered only 26$ which is my lowest score from RTG.

I can see that members here rate this game very highly, maybe I should give it another opportunity, but right now I don't really enjoy this game. I can't even say that it hasn't brought me big winnings because it hasn't brought me any winnings at all. The design is decent but the payout, at least for me, isn't good.

Today by chance I came across this RTG game and once I started playing I remembered that some time ago I had tasted it and I remember that at that time did not have much luck with it and the reason for the popularity of this slot became a mystery for me. Today my opinion about "paydirt" has taken a 180 degree turn because I finally had access to all its magic, which of course has let some credits in my account.

Before we begin, I would like to emphasize that the appearance of this slot looks better than many other games of Real Time Gaming, and I have the impression that images has been improved with a better handling of brightness and shadow and result is quite satisfactory.

This slot for its part does not differ much from other RTG slots, 3 x 5 reels, 25 paylines, bet levels between $ 0.01 and $ 5 per line, a wild symbol, which this time is represented by a gold nugget and also works only as substitute for standard symbols, but what is different and remarkable in this machine, is that the emergence of 3 scatters represented with wooden sign labeled with the word Paydirt, provides not one, but three different types of bonus rounds, which is selected randomly by the player by clicking on one of the scatters obtained. The 3 features are:

- Gold Rush: it is a 12 free spins round and wild symbols can appear grouped on any reel.
- Gold Fever: it is a round of 5 free spins and reel 3 appears completely wild.
- Strike it Lucky: here the player must choose one of the mines for getting a Bonus Symbol and you may also obtain an extra Bonus Symbol, then 10 free spins are awarded and during these spins all appearing symbols with same images than your bonus symbols will be automatically converted into wilds.

Personally, I think the size of gains achieved during these special features is quite interesting, and I actually think that in them is where the secret of attraction aroused by this slot machine is.

I think we all can agree that this 25-payline gold mining themed slot has a very captivating appearance and this is mainly thanked to the great graphics quality and the charming symbols. I like the gold color domination on the screen and the creators could keep it simple and didn’t make it too powerful that would ruin the overall picture. Anyway, the symbol illustrations are very well-created, detailed and crystal clear ones and I really sympathize with the gold digger, donkey, mining equipment and gold nugget icons. I think I don’t go wrong with that opinion that this is the interface and displaying mode what combines well all the important pictorial solutions which makes a slot game real attractive and players like spend spare times with.

I believe if someone likes what the game offers in visualization she/he will more like what the game provides as game features and qualities. The first fine example for that is the prize what the top paying 5 of a kind type line win can award which is 10.000 times of line bet in normal conditions (I mean here getting 5 identical symbols) but if that win is complementing with at least one Wild it promptly became more seductive as this win is worth 30.000 coins. It’s not too hard to figure out that the Gold Nuggets (Wild) has the ability to triple all wins which need it to be completed and we can also say about this figure that it arrives on the reels in stacked format, but on the other hand it just appears on the second and fourth reels and doesn’t pay any in itself.

Scatter also has great paying potential as a full win with it (5 Scatters anywhere on the screen) rewards us 200 times of total bet which is quite nice from it. In that case or even if we get just 3 of them we can select one of the symbols on the table that reveals one of the 3 available bonus features what the game offers. At Gold Rush! bonus we are awarded 12 free games where the grouped Wilds can appear not just only on that 2 reels as it uses in base game but any reels while Gold Fever! bonus option consists of just 5 free games but during that spins the entire middle reel becomes Wild and final at Strike it Lucky! bonus, at first we have to pick a bonus symbol out of 5 options (or we may can pick more than one in lucky situation) then 10 extra spins are awarded where each and every appearing previously selected bonus symbol immediately turns into Wild on the table. All 3 bonus type game can be re-triggered during the initial bonus game.

I think all of these side games has their own positives and negatives and all of them are capable to give back some nice profits however if I had to choose one of them which I like the most it definitely would be the first one where we play 12 spins with stacked Wilds. I also got the best results by it and achieved my highest profit at this game but I think it’s not just the reason why I love this more than the other two. First, I also prefer as many free games as I can get because I’ve got more chance for something real good happen and secondly a table when possible the whole first reel transforms into Wild really has some potential to award some surprisingly nice wins.

This is not just a great bonus feature but with its variations it guaranteed to not become boring or one-schemed and it really has the ability to keep me entertained and maintain my interest. Anyway, not just the secondary games proved to be rewarding but base game also has player-friendly paying system in effect and without bonuses it still would be a good game. Overall, there is nothing here that I could mention as a weak link in the system and from the appearance through game features, from rewarding ability to feature triggering and win occurring habits all stand out and this slot is really one of the few RTG games that surely can be recommended to any gambler and we can be sure that the feedback won’t be a negative one.

How would you like to be paid for all your hard work with dirt? Not unless the dirt is gold dirt, and that’s what PayDirt is all about. The game takes us back to the golden days of gold mining and the rewards are just gold, gold and more gold. Being an oldie game, PayDirt could certainly do with a new PayDirt II, with refreshing and amazing graphics and animations, in order to compete with the latest and the best online games. 1 star down.

There’s 1 small thing that disappoints me with the paytable, and that is, the Gold Nugget Wild symbol doesn’t pay for itself, thereby making it impossible to get lots of Gold Nuggets 5-of-a-kind payout. As it is, everything lies with the highest paying symbol, the Mine, to create huge wins which could pay 10000 x the line bet for 5 of them, but how many paylines of 5 mines can you get? Only 1, probably 2, so 1 star down.

Okay, so there are 3 variants of the free spins feature game in PayDirt. First, the Gold Rush feature game, awarding 12 free spins. Second, the Gold Fever feature game, awarding 5 free spins with an Expanded Wild Gold Nugget on reel 3. Lastly, the Strike It Lucky feature game, awarding 10 free spins with up to 3 additional Wild symbols. The PayDirt Scatter symbols pay both in the main game and in the free spins game, as well as retriggering more free spins. All 3 variants can play well and pay well, so no star down/up.

PayDirt can be dull and rather boring to play when things aren’t going your way. Spins and spins of emptiness or peanut payouts, until the 3 or more scatters start showing up. My preference is the Gold Fever game, followed by Strike It Lucky game, then lastly the Gold Rush game. The best Gold Fever game I’ve ever had was getting 3 Expanded Wild reels with 5-of-a-kind of the Mine, which tripled the 10000 x line bet win of the Mine, for a whopping $1600+ win. Strike It Lucky game was pretty good too, with all the 3 additional symbols won, and getting 5-of-a-kind wins too, but were never as good as the Gold Fever win. The Gold Rush game gives more free spins but rarely pay big, due to a lack of explosive catalyst like an Expanded Wild reel or even additional Wild symbols.

I’ve had very good games on PayDirt, as well as credit crunching games too, but that’s normal for any very high volatility game such as PayDirt, but when the good times come, oh boy, it feels just like a July 7th celebration, with beautiful money explosions! A thrill of a lifetime. 1 star up.

Paydirt it is one of the best real time gaming slot in my opinion, if not best. It has great look, and also can pay really big amounts of money, so i play this game every time i make deposit in real time gaming casino.

This game has 25 paylines, and here we have stacked wilds on reels 2 and 4, which triple the win if substitute. Believe or not, best 5 of a kind , it is mine here, will pay 30.000 coins with wild, this is more than 1000 x total bet, not many video slots can pay such big amount of money in base game, therefore of course i can't complain that base game here is boring, it is interesting and nice here! 3+ scatters trigger free spins, and also 5 scatters here pay good money - 200 x total bet, but best number of scatters i have was only 4, and only once, i played this game a lot but looks like get 5 scatters is really hard target. I like to say that here we have 3 different free spins features, which absolutely different and not similar to each other, i will describe you only one, my favorite - strike it lucky. This feature can give you up to 3 extra wilds, but unfortunately i never have 3 extra wilds. i think 3 extra wilds during 10 free spins can easy help to get more than 1000 x total bet after feature, best i had it was two, few times, and every time i had wins more than 200 x total bet. My record on this game in base game is something like x 150 total bet, and once i had feature which paid me 400 x total bet.

One of the best real time gaming slot, with very high variance, like i love. Will play this game again, and i suggest to try it out, since it is really cool one.

This is very disappointing!!! No one wrote on Pay Dirt!? This is the 25 paylines video slot that pays ssoooo well and includes a variety of features! Come on? 3 Features on this gold mine slot that pays very well and not another opinion in sight? I can only draw up a conclusion that would be that...."It's too early to say anything" in terms of other members so I will let that be and tell you about Pay Dirt. Okay so the main thing I like about it are the stacked Gold nuggets that give out "3x triple 3x" wins! It's only stacked for the 2nd and 4th reels but should really be everywhere so that my $1 bets get every smell and touch of gold per spin. It's so awesome that I hit 5 carts of gold symbols with these Gold nuggets that put in a big win of $60+!! So sweet that these symbols were all on the top of the reels while the nuggets were both stacked on the 2nd and 4th!! (mouth is now watering).

There are 3 features to get based on what the player's choice of a sign will bring out. 3 Scattered signs gets any "ONE" of the 3 features....now what will it be I wonder? The Gold Rush which is my second best likeable feature for 12 Free spins with all reels containing every stacked gold nuggets.......the Gold Fever for 5 short Free spins with the 3rd reel wild for the remainder of my free spins which is my least favourite one and the hot Strike it Lucky feature where this is one of the best features I try to get!!! It's a way to pick gold mines until there is a cave in. The more symbols I collect in this feature the more Gold nuggets my chosen symbols will turn wild. This feature alone gave me on average $40 on 10 Free spins but less if I get a cave-in very early! That's something to be careful about when choosing one mine at a time in Strike it Lucky!


Least favourite on this video slot......the Gold Fever feature! I try to avoid this at all times because it's 5 Free spins with the 3rd reel filled with Wild Gold Nuggets! Almost every time my free spins have been wasted due to the fact that the 1st and 2nd reels don't match any symbols!!!

One free spin hit something while the rest ended up for nothing! And what's more, 5 Free spins aren't adequate for a cool sum of money! That meant for me....no shades, beers, girls, cash...nothing!!
