I can’t really understand how come such an easy game (in concept) like Pocket Mine was able to keep me hooked for hours and hours, but that’s what happened and I don’t regret a single second spent digging and going deeper and deeper. Chances are, if you are here, that you are in a similar situation now and you want to get better. Hopefully we can help with some Pocket Mine cheats: a set of tips and tricks that will help you go deeper, get more bucks and then go even deeper all the way to the bowels of the earth.
Although it’s pretty basic gameplay in Pocket Mine and you could sum up the strategy into two words: “dig down,” there are some options that require some finesse, and that’s what we’re going to talk about in our tips and tricks article. So let’s get it started!
1. Down is not the best way to go
Contrary to what I said in the second paragraph, you shouldn’t always tap the square below you. Especially if you have the space and a tile that breaks in one tap nearby, go for it. Usually, it’s best to avoid the hard to break tiles because they consume your pick’s power. Also, if you see special stone squares around you, at first I would suggest going after them. Even though you won’t go deeper, you will earn bucks and that’s what you need to upgrade the pick. One after it can take 60+ digs, you should worry about depth.
2. Fuse Your Cards
At first, I said I am pretty happy with the cards that I have and I didn’t want to unlock the boxes anymore not to lower the chances of getting my favorite ones. However, if you have multiple cards of the same type, you can fuse them for some bucks and they will get better and better. So by all means keep opening chests and get as many cards as possible, then fuse them!
3. Tap the Free Stuff Button
You will have to watch a small advert and usually you will be rewarded with some dollars. But on other occasions, you will receive special special boxes: I have personally received a bunch of Diamond Chests which contain Rare, Mythical and Legendary cards which have incredible power and can help you a ton!
4. Complete the missions
Every time you start a new dig, you are challenged to complete a mission. Try to complete them, because the rewards are keys and you need these keys to unlock the crates for more cards. This is the easiest way to get the keys for free, and you will automatically do it by playing. Just make sure you know what your mission is (progress is shown in the upper right corner) and go for the win!
5. Go for explosions!
While you dig, you will find boxes of grenades, gas and other helpful boosts that break the tiles around. Always go for them since they offer free digs. The least useful is the dynamite which breaks all the tiles horizontally, but all the others, especially the grenades, are extremely useful and can save you a lot of trouble.
6. Learn to do with the cards you own
You might not like the draw of three cards that you get each game, and it costs 5 dollars to reshuffle. Although you will most likely make a lot more every run, it’s best to try and play with the given cards every time for some time otherwise you will upgrade your pick slower. However, if you really want to go for it and play with some amazing cards, tap the cards you want to hold then reshuffle. My tip: don’t spend more than 10 bucks each time, it’s not worth it (unless you have a few legendary cards that you want to play)
7. Get free gems
Gems should be solely used to purchase new cards (from Rare upwards) and you can get some gems from free by inviting friends to the game – you can get up to 70 free gems and a lot of other goodies if you can convince 10 friends to join. I say it’s really worth the trouble!
8. Upgrade the pick
I guess that this is a pretty obvious one, but I’ll put it here anyway: you will want to upgrade your pick every time you have the chance. A better pick allows you to dig longer and gives you the chance to earn a lot more dollars to spend on upgrading the pick even more, getting that perfect card or fusing the ones you already have. So if you want a perfect experience, keep upgrading the pick.
9. Keep playing
The more you play, the more you earn and the better you get. It’s pretty simple: invest time to better your game and you’ll do great!
