Tell me About the Game?

This is a very well thought out game in which, when you view the slot for the first time, Gold Rush Gus is digging away in a tunnel. Below him are the words “Yeehaw! Let’s Dig! It is only until you hit the Spin button will the reels and pay lines appear. The Spin button is a Pick Ax. Clever! Now interestingly enough, the reels do not spin, but when Gus hits them with his pick ax, they break up and move to the left while another set of reels and pay lines replace them. What is revealed under the rocks are the symbols, most of which are gems of all colors. Very clever! At the top of the slot, you will two bars – green and red. At the end of the bars is a Diamond with the word Jackpot under it.
