Magic Mine – Completely unique gaming experience

Magic Mine borrows it’s gameplay from popular match three symbols games which countless commuters play every day across the world. The objective of the game is to switch the gems up to match three symbols in a winning combination, and collect as many diamonds as possible. Each game has seven moves, and your symbol matching skills will determine the outcome of the game, and the final prize.

How to play Magic Mine

Players familiar with match 3 types of games will recognise the winning patterns and moves:

  • Swapping adjacent symbols to match 3 or more gems in a line,
  • Matched symbols disappear and the gems above drop. New randomly created gems enter the game to fill the space
  • Players have 7 moves to collect as many diamonds as possible
  • Cash prizes are awarded for collecting 10 or more diamonds
  • Matching 4 gems horizontally, or vertically, creates a striped gem in the position where the match was made,
  • When stripped gem is used in a match, it will remove all other gems in that row, or column, and any removed diamonds will be collected
  • Matching 5 or 6 symbols in a “T” or “L” shape will create a blast piece in the position of the match
  • When blast symbols are used in a match all gems around it will be removed,
  • Swapping any 2 stripped gems removes all gems in the row and column the gem is moved to
  • Swapping a vertical stripped gem with a blast piece removes all gems in the column (or row) the gem is moved to and all columns (or rows) on either side
  • Swapping 2 blast pieces removes 21 gems surrounding the position the gem is moved to
  • Matching 5 gems horizontally or vertically awards the player a Chest
  • Chests are opened at the end of the game and award player with 1 to 5 diamonds or the progressive jackpot
