Drill That Gold Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Drill That Gold Slot (Pragmatic Play)Pragmatic Play has a new kid on the block, and it goes by the name Drill That Gold. It’s a slot with a fairly obvious theme, and here, we are talking about a gold mining themed design.

As expected of this developer, the slot comes with high-quality graphics, above-average payouts, and a decent RTP.

Join me as we explore this title:

Game Set-Up

You will be playing on the standard 5x3 reels, and on them are 20 paylines. Major features inside include wild symbols, Gold Spins, Drill scatters, wilds, and several expanding symbols.

Betting and Prizes

I’m a serious fan of Pragmatic Play and starting from just $0.20 per spin, I was happy to play the slot for real money. Up to $100 can go into each spin that you make on the slot.

A top jackpot of about 5,000x the stake awaits you in Drill That Gold, a slot that we can say is high in volatility. I’m happy that the developer has considered offering an above-average RTP of 96.49% to the slot, which helps in countering its high risk.

Drill That Gold Slot Features

The wild appears in the image of a plunger which triggers some underground dynamite explosions. Although it works as a substitute, the wild can also form its winning combos that pay up to 12.50x the stake.

The Drill will be another of the slot’s features, and it is triggered whenever a stacked Miner symbol appears on all positions on a reel. This feature will transform into a Silver Drill, serving as a wild and offering payments of up to 100x the stake for each position.

A Drill Bonus symbol acts as the scatter, and landing 3+ on the reels will trigger the Gold Spins. This is how I landed on 10 Gold Free Spins. With an extra 2 to 5 symbols landing, the slot will reward you with an extra 4 to 10 spins.

Theme & Design

The gold mining theme has become quite common these days, and we’ve seen loads of them over the past years.

Pragmatic Play didn’t use much effort to create some unique symbols for the game, and what we are getting here are the common ideas we have already seen before.

These symbols are the low-paying Royals (10 to A), while higher-paying ones are in images of an oil lantern, pickaxe, mining cart, a Miner, and a diamond. The Drill is the scatter, while the detonator is the wild.


Drill That Gold is an excellent release by Pragmatic Play. I’m impressed by its features, and as a real money player, I can say that the top payout is quite fair.

It’s a great slot with a lot to offer players, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
