Let’s Dig In

Tips to get better at Idle Miner Tycoon

November 11, 2019 | 10 minute read


TIP 1: Always dig deeper

This first rule applies to all mines across the game: always aim to unlock deeper mineshafts. Try to progress to the lowest shaft possible and level up your deepest one until you can buy an even lower one. Every mineshaft produces significantly more (approximately 500 times on average) cash than the one above it, so keep on digging deeper!

TIP 2: Get your friends on board

This tip is simple yet incredibly effective: connect your game to your Facebook account to receive an up to 100% permanent income boost. Every friend you connect with will give you a 5% boost and you will be able to stack a maximum of 20 of these. In addition, your friends can join and help speed up your expeditions which bring you useful items such as boosts, super cash or collectible chests.

TIP 3: Stay boosted

Try to always keep your ad-boost active. Ad-boosts can be stacked for hours in advance, so just sit down for a few minutes, watch a couple of ads and fill up that boost bar.

TIP 4: The right skills

Try to progress and unlock skills in the research skill tree as fast as possible. These skills will give you permanent income boosts for single mines, entire continents or your overall mining empire. The “All mines generate X% more income” skills in the green branch are particularly worth maxing out.

TIP 5: Explore the mainland

Start completing mines in the mainland as soon as you can. The gems you earn here will allow you to unlock Super Managers. Their active and passive abilities are extremely helpful, especially further in the game or when trying to complete event mines.

TIP 6: It’s all about that synergy

Your items are most effective when you combine them, as their effects work very well together. The best example of this is the following: activate a couple of higher boosts and use your instant cash items right after. The boosts will temporarily increase your idle cash income and allow you to get more out of your instant cash items.


This tip will fuel your progress and boost your efficiency in the game: only ever maintain and expand one mine per continent. Use the prestige panel to find out what mine has the highest multiplier on every continent. As you prestige, multipliers will change, so make sure you’re always investing in your most profitable mine.
