Some strategies for playing the game "Gold Miner" include buying the strength item from the shop at any price, buying the luck and TNT items only at $100 or less, and trying to grab the grab bags first. Another tip is to not buy over the maximum of five TNT.
Players can grab diamond pigs offscreen for bigger payouts. Additionally, players should keep in mind that it takes 12 seconds to haul the largest gold nugget from the bottom of the screen, so they should not go for those pieces if time is running out. Additionally strategies include not buying more than is needed from the store to save gold and grabbing anything and everything when the time is running out.
