Places & Modes
Compete against other Prospectors and play endless versions of all your favorite mini-games, for the chance to win lots of cool prizes! Challenges take place in the Game Shack.
Note: You can only build the Game Shack once your Claim Office is level 5.
Surveying is one of the most important parts of the main game. To survey, find a pile of Pay Dirt while in Exploration mode and then take your vehicle over to it. To be successful, you’ll have to manage your crew and tools. Making the right or wrong decision of which worker/tool to use (or when to take out something manually) will either lead you to victory or defeat!
Your Home Claim is where all the action happens! This is your hub for managing worker’s tasks, buildings, and improving gold production. Make sure to visit your Home Claim frequently to ensure there’s enough pay dirt to supply wash plants and do upgrades if available. And feel free to make your Home Claim your own using decorations!
Drive around and see what you find! In Exploration mode you can use your pickup to hit pay dirt as well as find gems and other hidden items.
Exploration mode also spawns unique events. By completing these events, you’ll be rewarded with key materials needed to upgrade structures.
This is the map, where you can see the world of Planet Gold Rush! With help of this map, you can see events and claimed abandoned mines, rivals, as well as where to go to find new territories. The most important feature of this mode is Fast Travel. If you want to cover long distances fast, you can use this feature and appear near any claimed mine, but you have to find it first by driving around your pickup truck.
See how you stack up against your friends and other players from all over the world! The more bars you smelt, the higher on the leaderboards you’ll climb!
