Mines of Glory characteristics
Mines of Glory has eleven cascading symbols, a win multiplier during its free games, locked wilds during the free re-spins, seven total bets, and pays from X40 to X400.
The Mines of Glory’s dark purple 7X7 grid is neither partitioned nor framed. It is set in a crude mine that is propped up by huge runic and gem-embedded wooden beams. Illuminated by two vintage lanterns on the right and left margins; the underground mine in the background is fitted with a meandering wooden railroad. It also is strewn with barrels, crystals and mining tools, ranging from shovels and pick axes to wooden carts.
Mines of Glory’s bet sizes: $0.20 (minimum bet), $0.40, $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00 (maximum bet).
Mines of Glory’s two special symbols: the substitute is a “wild” vintage lantern; and the free games-activating scatter is a gem-embedded golden yellow shovel.
The nine ordinary symbols: auburn-haired miner, white-haired miner holding a pick ax, mustached brown-haired miner, heart suit-like ruby, spade suit-cut amethyst, diamond suit-cut citrine, club suit-cut sapphire, diamond suit-cut emerald, and club suit-cut pink topaz.
Below are the Mines of Glory’s payouts for five to 12+ winning clusters.
