Reel in the cash on Cash-O-Matic slot game

Let the old meet the new and turn your game into your personal cash machine on Cash-O-Matic slot game.

Slot Game intro

Cash-O-Matic slot machine combines the classic with the modern. The game has been styled as a well-designed old-fashioned cash register in a golden colour that displays gemstones in different colours as symbols on the reels. The slot has a modest number of game features, yet plenty of win ways. Although the slot is well-designed, the game innovation of Cash-O-Matic lies in the mechanics rather than the game design.

Gameplay

Cash-O-Matic seems keen to honour the classic fruit machine, yet has a lot of modern elements. The grid structure is not conventional and you won’t find classic slot game symbols on the reels either. The classic feel is implied by the old-school cash register that is part of the grid. The slot has a few interesting features. However the game doesn’t contain the slot stable feature wild symbol, which might make forming a winning combination a bit more of a challenge. The gemstone symbols resemble those of other NetEnt games like Starburst and Dazzle me. The five different gemstones on Cash-O-Matic all have different colours and are the higher value symbol. The red-coloured gem is the highest paying one awarding you 20 times your stake when you play 5 of these on the reels in one round.

Special Features

Reverse Avalanche

The Avalanche feature is also called the Cascading feature and entails that symbols fall rather than spin into place. In the regular Avalanche feature the symbols of winning combination disappear to make way for new symbols to give you an extra win chance in the same round. With the Reverse Avalanche mechanism the opposite happens: the winning combination stays in place and all other symbols disappear to make room for another winning combination while the reels cascade again.

Level Multiplier

Cash-O-Matic has multipliers of different values that are linked to different levels. Every time you fill a full row with winning symbols you are awarded a multiplier. You start with x1 and every additional row of winning symbols you manged to fill increases your level and with it the multiplier. Level 2 has a multiplier of x2, level 3 a multiplier of x4 and level 4 a multiplier of x10. These multiplier values can be multiplied up to factor 5 in Free Spins mode

Scatter Symbols

As on many slot games, on Cash-O-Matic too the Scatter symbol can trigger the Free Spins round. On this game you need to collect at least 10 Scatter symbols to activate Free Spins mode.

Free Spins

Once Free Spins mode is activated you are awarded 1 free round for every Scatter you have collected. This means you will have a minimum of 10 free spins. Playing additional Scatter symbols doesn’t retrigger the mode or give you extra free rounds. However, you win 1 extra free spin for every full row you manage to fill with winning symbols. You increase the multipliers in these extra spins. Play between 10 and 14 Scatters and you double the multipliers, so multiplier x4 becomes x8 and the highest multiplier of x10 becomes x20. If you play between 15 and 19 Scatters you triple all multiplier values and play 20 Scatters or more these values are multiplied by x5. Filling the entire grid with Scatters awards you a multiplier of x50.

Verdict

Although sufficiently pleasing to the eye, Cash-O-Matic’s visuals seem rather basic and due to its rather simple design the game has a retro feel. Special game features might be few, they are quite innovative. The game puts the popular Avalanche feature on its head by reversing the mechanism and thanks to the multiplier ladder the game has great win potential. It’s not that easy to form wins, however. The game has no Wild symbols that can lend a helping hand forming winning combinations and the lucrative Free Spins round is a challenge to trigger. Cash-O-Matic is a high variance slot and would especially interesting to high-rollers and other high volatility slot lovers who love videoslots with a classic feel yet don’t mind innovative game mechanics. If you like slots with impressive visuals telling a story and giving you the chance to make smaller wins on a more regular basis, this slot is not for you.
