Game description

Miner Donkey Trouble (Play n Go)

Miner Donkey Trouble (Play n Go)This game is an addition to the long list of slots from Play n Go. It has a gold mining themed and design, but to give it the fun bit, the developer has used a Donkey as the main character.

Play n GO slots have two things in common, which are great payouts, and quality graphics. This is the same case with Miner Donkey Trouble.

Here is my full review of this new title:

Game Set-Up

This game uses an unusual set-up of 5x7, with no usual pay lines. Instead, the developer has gone with matching symbols that form a cluster (cluster pays).

It’s also that is rich in features, some which include Increasing Multiplier, Cascading Reels, Random Wilds among others.

Betting and Prizes

Placing a bet on Miner Donkey is pretty simple, and with as little as $0.10, you can start to spin the reels.

If you love taking more risk, the slot allows you to bet with up to $100 per spin.

The potential is great and just like other slots from this developer, you can take home as much as 10,000 xs the stake on a lucky day.

The RTP of Miner Donkey Trouble is above the average, and at 96.27%, it is obviously above 96% that is common with many modern slots.

Miner Donkey Trouble Features

The wild symbol is the most obvious, and it appears as a big shiny diamond decorated in a golden “W”.

On its own, the wild has no much value, but when used in combination with other features, it can do much better.

You can also use the wild to form winning combos, or as a replacement for the regular symbols, but not the scatter.

Then there are the Cascades/Avalanche features, and they will come in to remove the winning symbols and replace them with new ones. The process will go on until there are no more wins.

The multiplier will come in to boost additional cascading wins, however, it will reset once you enter the next paid spin.

My favourite feature is the Dynamite scatter that can also appear in cascades. These will work by removing the surrounding symbols whenever they explode.

If you are lucky to land at least 3 of these within the same cascading order, the slot will trigger the free spins.

Initially, you will get 5 free spins, however, you can also retrigger it up to 20 times. This allows you to enjoy as many as 100 free spins.

Theme and Design

As its title suggests, the slot uses a mining theme for its inspiration. On the reels, you will find varying symbols that include the miner with his trusty donkey (Trouble), brightly coloured rocks and gems, gold nuggets as well as pickaxes.

As a Play n’ Go slot, you can expect the best when it comes to the design, and sure enough, Miner Donkey Trouble does not disappoint.


The developer has flawlessly executed the design of this title, and I fell in love with the funny antics coming from the donkey that appears on the left-hand side.

At first, the feature looks quite complex, but once you get into the game, everything flows smoothly.

Miner Donkey Trouble is a great choice for all level of players; however, you need to be careful with is high variance.
