Game in Action
Dynamite Digger has a progressive jackpot and an exploding reel feature, but that’s about where the positives end. The graphics are dated, which is perhaps no surprise when you consider this game was created a number of years ago, and whilst the RTP isn’t too bad, it’s not too great either.
There are some big paying symbols here and if your luck is in then you can walk away with as much as 5,000x your stake, but we feel that more is needed, because Dynamite Digger falls someway short in many areas, not least of which are the lack of bonus rounds, as we shall discover.
There are no bonuses on Dynamite Digger, unless you class the exploding reels feature as a bonus, which we don’t (although the developers might). This is a big shame, as this game could have really used a little something extra. You can only get excited about the exploding reels for so long, and even if the game is paying out and you’re winning big, you’re going to get bored if you have no bonus rounds to chase.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
They say you should not judge a book by its cover, and we tried not to do that with Dynamite Digger. It didn’t look great, but we didn’t let that get to us. We paid our money and we took our spins, but even if you ignore the aesthetics, Dynamite Digger has very little to offer. This is an old slot, so we can’t blame them for not taking advantage of better graphics and features, but even back when this was created there was better technology than this available. Competing slots were offering free spins, bonus rounds, instant win features and more. Of course, Dynamite Digger does have an exploding reel feature, and we suppose that would have been impressive back when it was created. It might have even been enough for us to ignore everything else, but nowadays, when these things are common and usually accompanied by bigger and better features, this is not enough.
Dynamite Digger gets a hastily scrawled “should have tried harder” from us, and this is a report card that we can’t score higher than 4/10. It makes you wonder if there is any need for the old games to remain on the new casinos, because if you have the choice between Dynamite Digger or games like Rainbow Riches, South Park, Chain Reactors and others, why would you choose the former over the latter?
