Cash-O-Matic slot review (Netent)
Netent’s Cash-O-Matic is one of those online slots that immediately makes you wonder
What on earth am I supposed to do with this thing?
To clarify: that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Slots can be just like music: sometimes you have to let it sink in for a bit before you can determine how it makes you feel.
So we played Cash-O-Matic extensively. It is a classic slot with a retro look on the outside, but it does have a few modern twists such as win all ways, respins and multipliers.
Although the game’s tempo is sometimes excruciatingly slow (especially the stacked scatters – yawn!), we did have a lot of fun playing Cash-O-Matic.
It is not a slot that will allow you to win humongous amounts of money: the maximum payout is a modest 2,000 x the bet. But we did manage to win several bonus rounds of 200 x – 300 x the total bet.
And the biggest annoyance of the primary game, the slow tempo, turns into an advantage in the bonus round. You get lots of respins and a lot of playing time for your money.
How does Cash-O-Matic work?
Cash-O-Matic is played on a 5 x 4 reel setup and comes with 1,024 ways to win.
The symbols give a, to put it mildly, uninspired impression. There are generic jewels, some card symbols and a scatter symbol. Also, as far as the animations go, it would seem that Cash-O-Matic is trying to keep it as dull and boring as it can be.
Strangely enough, you would expect the entire game to be no fun, but that isn’t so.
Betting starts at $€ 0.20 and goes up to $€ 100 per spin.
The variance is medium, and the theoretical payout rate is 96.33%
Symbols and payouts
The red star-shaped gemstone is the highest paying symbol and the only one that already returns at two symbols from left to right on the reels.
Spin 5, and you win 20 coins.
The remaining gemstones (orange, green, blue and purple) will earn you 7 or 8 coins with a 5-of-a-kind.
There are also five card symbols (10, J, Q, K and A) worth 4 or 5 coins when you get 5 of the same.
Respins and multipliers
Now we can hear you think: those payouts are low?!
That is only partially true.
With every new winning combination, you get a free respin, with winning symbols tumbling down on the reels and making room for new ones.
Besides that, it is also true that when you manage to fill up a second, third or fourth horizontal line, the multiplier goes up.
1, 2, 3, or 4 rows filled with symbols are good for multipliers of 1 x, 2 x, 4 x or 10 x, respectively.
With the repins, the win all ways and the multipliers, it suddenly becomes possible to get your hands on some serious money.
Free spin bonus
When you manage to gather 10 or more scatters during a turn (inclusive of the respins), you win the free spin bonus.
Every scatter above 10 gives you an extra free spin.
Besides those additional spins, more scatters translates into increased multipliers:
- 10 to 14 scatters get you multipliers of 2 x, 4 x, 8 x and 20 x
- 15 to 19 scatters get you multipliers of 3 x, 6 x, 12 x and 30 x
- 20 + scatters get you multipliers of 5 x, 10 x, 20 x and 50 x
And to cap it all off, you get an extra free spin handed to you for every row you can fill during the free spins.
That explains how you can start with 10 free spins and end up with 25 + of them.
A fun bonus feature that will let you play for a long time, and that pays out very nicely regularly.
Our verdict on the Cash-O-Matic video slot?
Cash-O-Matic by Netent is a lot more fun than we initially thought it would be.
That does not mean it is an absolute winner, but it is worth trying out.
The recreational player or beginning slots player who wants to play for a couple of hours with an amount of $€ 20 or $€ 30 will get a lot of enjoyment out of Cash-O-Matic.
