An other Smurf who is available for Coins is Miner Smurfs. Miner Smurfs Mine is available at level 12 for 1000 Coins and takes 24 hours to build as well. Miner is stationary and comes with his own mini-game.
Every twenty-four hours Miner gives 200 XP and 100 Coins and like Timber a sign above his mine shows when he is ready. Clicking on his mine also shows a countdown bar indicating how long it takes until he is ready again to give bonus XP and Coins.
Stones put near his mine increase the amount of XP given by miner, the bigger the stones, the more bonus XP they give. To see which stones are affected and within Miner’s range just tap on his mine, all stones that give the extra XP will turn green, just like the logs placed near Timber Smurf do. The Maximum XP you can get from the stones put next Miner’s mine is about 1000XP.
Miner comes with a mining mini-game. There are four different mines to choose from, after that it is the goal to break open as many rocks in 60 seconds with an axe as possible. If a broken rock reveals silver, gold or a gem it can be traded for XPs (gems) and Coins (gold and silver). Cole can also be found under the rocks but if this happens it cannot be exchanged for something valuable.
To increase the speed with which the stones are broken by the axe, the use of the golden axe is required; it cuts the number of blows of the axe needed in half. The golden axe can be bought within the mining game for 20 Smurfberries.
Miner Smurfs’ Hut & Diamond Mine
The Miner Smurf Update (version 1.2.7 on iOS and 1.1.5a on Android) added a Mushroom House for Miner Smurf as well as a new mine for his game.
The Diamond Mine Is only available after Miner Smurf’s Hut has been build. The Diamond mine, unlike all of the other mines, does not have coal, meaning that the rewards in XP and Coins for playing this mine can be higher than with the other mines.
Miner Smurf’s Hut is available for Smurfberries. After it has been placed it will grant an additional 200 XP every time Miner Smurf’s Mini-Game has been played, that means it can give up to 200 XP every 6 hours.
