NetEnt Presents Its New Feature-Packed, High Volatility Slot Cash-O-Matic
- June 24, 2019 By Oliver Young -
It seems like the industry’s leading software developer has decided to reward us with plenty of new slots this summer. Less than two weeks after the release of the wolf-themed slot Spinsane, NetEnt has presented its brand new release, the 5-reel, 1,024 ways to win slot Cash-O-Matic.
The theme in the slot is inspired by the first-ever slot machine invented in 1895 by Charles Fey, The Liberty Bell. Therefore, with the Avalanche feature and the theme, Cash-O-Matic presents a mixture of the old-school slot machines and the contemporary exciting gameplay NetEnt is popular for.
A Mixture of the Good Old Elements and the New Excitement
Cha-ching! You hear the sound of coins falling as you load the game, the familiar sound that we used to hear in the past across land-based casinos. NetEnt has intentionally designed the slot with slightly outdated graphics and design, to match the visual representation with the theme of the slot.
The reels, covered in gold and found farthest to the right, present the gemstone symbols in 5 different colours and the playing-card Royals. As you go towards the left side of the screen, somewhere in the middle, you will see the Scatter Meter, and farthest to the left, you will see the Multiplier Meter.
To explain better, we need to first remind you of how the Avalanche feature works, NetEnt’s proprietary feature, used in other slots such as Asgardian Stones and Cosmic Fortune. You form a winning combo, and all symbols on the reels except for the winning symbols are removed from the screen, making space for brand new ones to land from above. This Avalanche chain reaction continues for as long as you land winning combos.
Now, about those Multipliers. They are part of the Multiplier Feature. You trigger the feature the minute you fill a row with winning symbols. This feature is connected to the Avalanches. For 1 row with winning symbols, you get 1x Multiplier, for 2 rows you get a 2x Multiplier, for 3 a 4x Multiplier, and if you manage to land winning combos in 4 rows, you get a 10x Multiplier.
The Multiplier Feature applies in the second important feature, the Free Spins. You will need to land 10 or more Scatters in one Avalanche sequence in order to trigger the Free Spins. The number of spins you get depends on the Scatters you land during the triggering round, but you can get up to 20 Free Spins. Fill an entire row with Scatters and you will retrigger the feature, and 1 extra Spin will be added to your total. The Multipliers, on the other hand, will increase depending on the number of Scatters you land in one sequence. With 10 to 14 Scatters, the Multiplier can be anywhere between 2x to 20x, with 15 to 19 Scatters between 3x to 30x and with 20 or more Scatters, between 5x and 50x!
NetEnt’s Director of Games’ Statement
Proudly presenting the iGaming industry with the newest slot release, Bryan Upton, Netent’s Director of Games said about the game that it was a high volatility one, filled with Multipliers, Free Spins, Scatter Stacks and the unbelievable Avalanche feature. The slot resulted in a simple yet classy art-deco game, meant for all the high-rollers because of its 2,000x the stake payout potential. Upton admitted that they are pleased with the final product, as it offers some staggering wins and exciting gameplay.
