The story behind the game
Remember the dot com boom? When people with no particular skills or talents somehow made millions of dollars just by getting lucky? Well, back in the 1800s there was something quite similar – it was called the Gold Rush. People from thousands of miles away rushed to the Western frontier, to California, in search of gold, adventure and a nice saloon in which to drink whiskey and shoot card cheats.
Paydirt! hearkens back to those heady days, but this time you're searching for that big strike with nothing but your wits and your mouse-clicking finger to help in your search.
Scatter Symbol: Symbols that pay no matter where they land.
Random Progressive Jackpot: A jackpot that is awarded randomly, and that increases in value until it's won.
Autoplay: Pre-setting your slot machine with a set number of automatic spins. This way you don't have to hit the "Spin" button each time you want to play.
Feature/Bonus game: This means a number of spins you get to play for free, but where you still get to keep anything you win.
