Sometimes, old school and nostalgia just work. Indeed, NetEnt have certainly made it work with their Cash-O-Matic slot game.
Our Cash-O-Matic casino slot game review was made hugely enjoyable by the appearance that the developer looked to use as it took us back in time and provided us with a blast from the past.
Clearly inspired by an Art-Deco theme, players will notice straightway that the game is not laid out like many other slot games. The grid is positioned to the right of the screen as there are two meters positioned on the left-hand side that show how many Scatters have been collected and what the current Multiplier is.
In regards to the actual grid, there are five reels and four rows in which players are able to try and form winning combinations upon a huge 1,024 ways to win! Due to the number of ways to win, players are able to win up to 2,000x their bet.
Players can look to spin the reels from just €0.20 per spin whilst those with bigger betting balances are able to take a chance with up to €100 per turn allowed. Indeed, there is also a Cash-O-Matic Free Play version available above.
NetEnt have provided players with the ‘Max Bet’ button available, which will see a bet of 100 take place, as well as the ‘Autoplay’ button. Players who select this will be able to set from between 10 and 1,000 spins to automatically take place, thus allowing them to sit back and watch the rewards land!
There are 10 different symbols available on the paytable, with the royal playing card numbers – 10, J, Q, K and A – all paying the least. These, though, are followed by the purple, blue, green, orange and red gems. The latter is the most valuable as five of these on a payline will provide players with 20x their bet
NetEnt have provided players with their Avalanche feature. For those unaware of it, it is essentially a cascading reels mechanism. This will see winning combinations disappear from the grid and be filled by new icons. This will continue to happen until no further winning sequences can be formed on that spin.
As mentioned, there is a Multiplier meter to the left of the grid. This starts from 1x and goes all the way to 10x. Players are able to boost this meter by achieving winning combinations on certain rows. For a 1x multiplier, players will need to fill the bottom row, whilst filling the bottom two rows will see a multiplier of 2x awarded to wins. The bottom three and all four rows will see a 4x and a 10x multiplier respectively applied to the wins.
There is a 50x multiplier available, though. This can be achieved by picking up 20 or more Scatter symbols on the fourth multiplier level. 10 or more Scatter symbols, though, will see the player awarded with some free spins.
RTP (return to player)
This Cash-O-Matic slot review found that the return to player (RTP) rate stands at 96.33%, however NetEnt have revealed it is a game of high volatility, thus wins can be infrequent but rather large when they do happen.
