Netent’s Cash Noire slot is an exciting online slot where you, as an inspector, try to solve crimes and win big along the way

Cash Noire (or black money) is very similar to those old fashioned tv crime shows that you couldn’t get enough of.

Yes, who does not know Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot? Has anyone seen the famous German Krimi’s like Derrick, Tatort or Der Alte?

Software: Netent

Paylines: 5 reels with 4 rows, 1,024 ways to win

RTP and variance: 96.06%, Low to Medium variance

Maximum win: Around 10,000 x the bet

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€200

Bonus features: Free spins, Crime Zone, Mystery symbols, multipliers

Casino Hipster verdict: Great

This slot strongly reminds us of those beautiful days when we were watching these series with the family at home.

The idea here is that you collect all kinds of clues, to solve a puzzle and finally the murder.

The more successful you are in doing so, the higher the prizes.

And yes, Cash Noire has a huge prize potential

Netent doesn’t indicate what you can win at most, but if we are to believe Netent’s promotional video, a prize of no less than 10,000x the bet is possible.

Let’s solve the mystery!

Cash Noire slot – Gameplay and Features

You also have a Crime Zone (a hotspot) that you recognize by an illuminated and red circled area (usually in a T-shape).

You also have Mystery Symbols. These all change into identical symbols, increasing your chances of a winning combo.

But if a Mystery symbol ends in the Crime Zone, all fields within the Crime Zone become a Mystery symbol and, eventually, identical symbols. This can be very lucrative, with 1,024 ways to win.

How to activate the free spins?

On the left side of your screen, you’ll see a bulletin board with all kinds of clues. You solve a clue when you spin a winning combo with at least 1 winning symbol in the Crime Zone.

Once you’ve solved all the clues on the board, you get access to the free spins.

You get 6 free spins to start with.

Free spins bonus round – start the chase

Now you’re going to start a chase, with a fast car.

Again, on the left side of the screen, you’ll see a kind of map with all types of markers (red lights) that you have to pass.

You do this when you make a winning combo, with at least one of the winning symbols in the Crime Zone.

Each marker you pass by, either result in extra free spins or multipliers (up to a maximum of 10x).

Payout percentage (RTP)

Cash Noire’s RTP is 96.06%. That’s (unfortunately) a bit modest for Netent terms.

Cash Noire slot – the variance (volatility) is low to medium

According to Netent, the variance is low to medium.

That surprises me a bit, as the slot (at least so it seems) has a considerable prize potential with the 1,024 ways to win and the multipliers in the free spins.

The top prizes are more likely to be around 200x to 300x the bet, with such a low variance. A win above 500x is very exceptional.

The promotional video showing a prize of over 9,000x the bet seems to be very, but very optimistic.

Cash Noire slot – pros and cons


  • Great theme, and who doesn’t want to solve a murder?
  • Lots of playing time, without taking too much risk
  • Beautiful features that are easy to understand, but certainly not boring


  • The slot should have had a higher variance, as far as I’m concerned.
  • If you solve a murder, you want to see a nice prize in return. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case here.

Cash Noire slot – who will like the slot? And who won’t?

The fun of playing is paramount, and you can certainly do so with this beautiful, enigmatic Netent slot. You don’t take too much risk here.

Yes, somewhere the theme (at least that’s what I think) is better suited to a slot with a higher variance. Solving a murder should feel like a milestone. Unfortunately, prizes don’t feel that way here.
