NetEnt Introduces Cash-o-Matic
It’s critical for online casino slot developers to keep things fresh over time. If they refuse to do this, then they will fall behind the times. However, some are able to bring back themes and concepts from the past and make them new and interesting again, and those titles can be very successful as well.
This is what has happened with Net Entertainment’s most recent release Cash-o-Matic and its retro-based theme and concept.
While the theme might have a retro flair to it, the gameplay does not, and this is a title that will bring you a ton of action with excellent graphics and a strong aesthetic. If you think that you’re just going to get the same old throwback style of game, then you better think again when you try out this new slot.
What It Brings to the Table
There are two major areas that most players want to know about before they play a title on the gameplay side: They want to know about the pay table, and they want to know about the features that the game has to offer.
The main gameplay point that players will see the most often is a reverse avalanche feature. In most games with this type of feature, if you get a winning combination, all of the winning symbols are removed from the game before new ones fall in to take their place. That’s not the case here: All of the winning symbols are the symbols that stay in place instead. This leads to an action-oriented style of play where you try to make new wins to keep the streak going, and that can lead to several payouts on the same paid spin.
These avalanches lead to multipliers as well that are worth up to 10x, so it’s clear that they are serious about giving players some large wins.
The Pay Table
The main symbol set consists of five colored gems and five card rank symbols. They fall in color from red to orange, green, blue and purple to denote rank, and they all have fairly small win sizes because they are based on multiples of your entire wager (of 20 coins per spin) instead of line bet payouts.
This pay structure is used because the game has five reels and four rows of symbols with 1,024 ways to win on every turn, so the volatility is pretty low and the hit-rate is fairly high.
Scattered symbols can show up on the reels as well and give you a minimum of 10 free spins. These free spins are very valuable because they give you better chances to win than the regular game does.
An Older Visual Style
Something else that’s really interesting about the Cash-o-Matic video slot is that it’s all about giving players an experience within an older visual style. That’s not to say that the graphics are dated because they’re not; as a matter of fact, they’re up there with the best that the industry has to offer. Instead, it’s about the layout having the reels off to the side with multipliers and scatter counters on the left, which is similar to how some classic slots were laid out with their pay table shown beside of the reels.
Overall, we think that this title has a lot to offer players who like a lot of action. It’s definitely not for players who shy away from a high hit-rate or games with a reasonable volatility despite the chances to win some pretty sizable wins.
