NetEnt promises an interesting concept: a machine that makes cash! Is it too good to be true, or can this game live up to the hype? Read on to find out!
- Avalanche bonus with a twist
- Progressive multiplier up to 10x
- 1024 ways to win
Emulating a physical slot machine is not a new concept. That does not stop this developer from making their own novel spin on the idea.
Despite its simple theme, the gameplay loop requires a little bit of effort to understand fully. Special features include the Avalanche, a progressive multiplier and free spins.
All three integrated with each other to create an overall enjoyable experience.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
The background image is not what you usually expect from modern releases. It wraps around the reels, and makes this title look like a physical machine.
Rather than going for a generic option, the software provider styled it as an old-timey slot. The sounds back this up, too.
You can hear the mechanical sounds of the reels clicking into place with each spin. The music also helps immerse you in the theme Cash-o-Matic tries to sell.
You play this online slot on a five-reel, four-row board. This time around, NetEnt has decided to use ways to win instead of standard paylines.
You have 1024 total, giving you an increased chance to win! Wins are formed by landing three or more matching symbols next to one another, starting with the leftmost reel.
Every time a win occurs, it triggers the Avalanche bonus. Icons that were part of the win will be saved, while the rest are removed from the board.
These symbols then fall to the bottom of the reels, while brand new icons fall on top of them. You can get a second Avalanche by landing a new winning combination, or by extending the previous one.
This allows you to keep growing your win. With enough luck, you could get a full screen of winning symbols!
Every time you completely fill a row with icons, you increase the level multiplier. Completing the first, second, third and fourth row grants a 1x, 2x, 4x and 10x multiplier, respectively.
Collect ten Scatters to win ten free spins. The Scatters do not have to be collected immediately. You have until the Avalanche bonus completes to collect enough Scatters.
During free spins, you can boost the multiplier even further. How high the multiplier climbs depends on the initial level multiplier and how many Scatters were collected.
You can see the detailed breakdown in the table below:
|10-14 Scatters||15-19 Scatters||20+ Scatters|
Where To Play Cash-O-Matic?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP for this slot is 96.33%. This is above average when compared to the current industry average of 96%. It may look old-timey, but it plays like a modern title!
You can bet between $0.20 and $100 on each spin. You adjust the wager by changing your bet level and coin value.
We like this spread of bets, as it allows both casual players and high rollers to enjoy themselves.
This game has a high volatility. This math model can create some incredible wins, but it will make you work for it.
Still, we think the 50,000x jackpot is more than worth it!
Any theme can work well if you give it some proper care and attention. NetEnt shows that even emulating physical machines can look interesting by adding a bit of flavour to it!
Once we understood how the special features interact with each other, our enjoyment of Cash-o-matic shot up substantially.
Even if you do not win the biggest prize, you will still score some mouth-watering wins. We rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
Now, if you will excuse us, we need to go back and play it some more.
