Play’n Go is the master of grid slot games like Reactoonz and Reactoonz 2 and Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness.

And now their first official release of 2021 is another one of those types of games, Miner Donkey Trouble.

Miner Donkey Trouble comes with 5 reels, each 7 symbols high and a total of 35 symbols in that grid. Winnings combinations are 5 or more of the same symbols in a cluster.

Every winning combination is removed and new symbols fall on top to create a possible new win.

Miner Donkey Trouble also comes with a lot of extra’s and bonuses. I will list them below.

Golden Nuggets

When a golden nugget reached the bottom of a reel it is collected and will increase the multiplier by x1. You can collect several golden nuggets during each spin, increasing the multiplier each time. This multiplier is reset to zero when no new winning combination appears.

Donkey Destruction Meter

Each winning symbol is removed from the reels and will fill a meter in the left.

If you reach certain levels you will receive a special bonus.

  • 18 symbols collected will destroy all rock symbols on the grid
  • 40 symbols collected will destroy all symbols on the grid
  • 50 symbols collected will destroy all symbols except golden nuggets and will also add up to 5 more golden nuggets

Miner’s Pick Axe

This is a special symbol that may appear during any spin.

When this appears it will add between 4 and 10 random wild symbols to the grid.

Mega Symbols

After each non winning spin this can be activated at random. 1 or 2 mega symbols will be put on the grid of 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 symbols big.

Free Spins Feature

Dynamite symbols might appear on the reels and will explode leaving 2 wild symbols behind. Collect at least 3 of them and you will trigger the free spins feature.

5 free spins are awarded and can be retriggered up to 20 times.

During free spins the multiplier is never reset.


When reading this post you might feel overwhelmed, but when playing Miner Donkey Trouble you will soon get the gameplay.

Like all these grid games Miner Donkey Trouble comes with a lot of in-game bonuses for collecting certain symbols or a certain amount of symbols.

This keeps the game interesting and moving along.

But be aware. Miner Donkey Trouble is a tough game, it sometime feels like big wins are impossible and even with several in-game bonuses during a spin you still might only win 2 times your bet. But as with all these grid games, the game can also pay out huge, especially during those free spins (which are also hard to trigger). The maximum reward on this game is 10.000 times your bet.

I don’t think Miner Donkey Trouble is for everyone, but players that love grid slot games, especially those Play’n Go titles, will also love this game!
