Cash-O-Matic is an unusual-looking game that also plays differently to most online slots.
The Cash-O-Matic slot game uses Avalanche Reels to give you extra chances to create wins, and it also has a 1,024 ways-to-win pay system and a generous free spins bonus.
The design of the Cash-O-Matic slot has an air of Art Deco about it, and the 1920's style Ragtime soundtrack keeps the gameplay bouncing along. There are no fixed paylines in Cash-O-Matic. Instead, there are 1,024 ways to win, and you can see exactly how winning combinations can be formed by looking at the bottom of the Help file. The playing area of the Cash-O-Matic slot is made up of five reels and four rows of symbols, and you can set your stake size to a minimum of 20p, a maximum of £400 or somewhere in between the two.
The game screen is divided into two halves. On the left (just underneath the game logo), there are two meters which display the current multiplier value and the number of collected scatter symbols. On the right, you have the reel set which can contain up to twenty symbols. The symbols that help you win prizes include yellow, red, blue, and green gems and playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J, and 10).
At the very bottom of the screen, there are icons and buttons that load the paytable, adjust the stake, mute the sounds, enable Auto-Play, and show the full rules.
Cash-O-Matic does not include a wild symbol.
Many of NetEnt's newest slots boast multiple special features, and the Cash-O-Matic slot game is one such slot.
Avalanche Reels are a big part of the playing experience as they make it possible to create consecutive wins while only paying for a single spin. To explain the feature in more detail, each time that you hit the "Spin" button, twenty symbols drop down from the top of the screen to fill the empty spaces on the reels. If a win is created, only the symbols in the win remain on the reels; all others are removed so that new ones can take their place. The Avalanche process continues until no more wins are possible, and with each consecutive win, the multiplier meter on the left-hand side increases one step. In the base game, the steps on the meter are 1x, 2x, 4x, and 10x.
The Free Spins Bonus is awarded when at least ten scatter symbols are visible on the same spin. You get a minimum of 20 free spins and a maximum of 50. However, the game grants you more free games with each new row of symbols that's formed. In addition, the values on the multiplier meter temporarily increase to a minimum of 5x and a maximum of 50x.
