Seek Your Fortune With Dig Dig Digger

Check out our impartial review of the BGAMING pokie known as Dig Dig Digger

Dig Dig Digger is a relatively new BGAMING pokie that launched on June 11, 2021. BGAMING has recycled the popular “book of” mechanics, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. We put Dig Dig Digger through its paces at Jackpot Jill, and this is what we found.

Dig Dig Digger Fundamentals

The “book of” online pokies can be quite serious, so we are happy BGAMING opted for a more fun approach to Dig Dig Digger. The game revolves around digging for treasure, hence the machine’s name, which is does slightly tongue-in-cheek.

The Dig Dig Digger graphics are HD quality, therefore, pleasing on the eye. Its soundtrack is catchy too, and we found ourselves tapping away to it after a few spins! BGAMING opted for a tried and trusted 5×3 layout that has 10 lines. This lack of lines makes for a simple experience.

Variance is on the high side, so have a decent bankroll to take the strain, even at $0.10 per spin. Add this to the fact the RTP is 95.5%, lower than your typical pokies, and you quickly realise this machine is not a game for the fainthearted.

A maximum payout per single spin of 5,500x makes the grind worthwhile, however.

What Are The Dig Dig Digger Symbols?

Dig Dig Digger ten prize-awarding symbols, all with an archaeological theme. Royals, tens through aces, are the low-value symbols. Three are required to trigger a win. They pay 0.5x for three up to 15x for landing five.

The Scarab, Ankh, and Bowl are higher-value Dig Dig Digger symbols. You only need two matching symbols to trigger a “win.” We say it in quotation marks because two symbols only pays 0.5x. However, five bowls are woth 200x.

Big prizes await those who land the game’s wild symbol or the archaeologist. Prizes of 500x are yours for landing five.

Symbol Match 2 3 4 5
Wild 1.0x 10.0x 100x 500x
Archaeologist 1x 10x 100x 500x
Bowl 0.5x 4x 40x 200x
Scarab and Ankh 0.5x 3x 10x 75x
Aces and Kings 0.5x 4x 15x
Queens, Jacks, and Tens 0.5x 2x 10x

What Are The Features and Bonuses?

Dig Dig Digger uses the same spade symbols for its wild and its scatter. Wild substitute for all standard paying symbols, awarding the largest prize only. Three scatters anywhere on the board starts the game’s free spins round. You receive 10 free spins, plus a payout of 2x, 20x, or 200x your bet for landing three, four, or five scatters.

A random symbol is chosen before the free spins round begins; it becomes an expanding symbol that covers the reels entire when they land. They pay anywhere on the board, leading to more wins than usual.

The base game gives you the chance to gamble with your winning. The aim is to correctly guess the card’s colour. Guess correctly to double your winnings. However, guess wrong and your winnings are lost. This feature repeats, so big wins are possible if your luck is in.


BGAMING played it safe when it released Dig Dig Digger, which is a shame. Other online casino developers are trying new things, but BGAMING reskinned a standard “book of” pokie.

The base game is fun to play thanks to the cartoon-like graphics, but it does not grab your attention for long. Anyone who has played a “book of” pokie will not find anything different here.

The fact the RTP is a shockingly low 95.5% – that is a house edge of 4.5% – makes us want to not recommend this game. Why not give the game a try? We found it entertaining in short bursts, making it a good choice for those of you with limited time to play.
