Cash-O-Matic

Cash-o-matic

Cash-o-Matic has already become something of a hit with online casino players, despite only debuting in 2019. The Net Entertainment developed UK internet slots game bears little in common to their other similarly titled game, Egg-O-Matic, and instead more closely related to the Cluster Pay games which have been produced by the Scandinavian developer of late.

This game does, however, feature paylines. There are 1,024 of those spanning the slot’s 5 reels. Despite the surplus of paylines, bets are considerably cheap in this Victorian-style slot. Players can expect wagers which stretch from 20p a turn up to no more than £100 a game. A decent RTP (return to player) rate is also present, standing at 96.33%. While wagers are cheap, and prizes are frequently paid out, the value of those cash prizes is a little on the short side. Players shouldn’t expect to win any more than 20x their total bet on any payline in the game. Again, this is more in line with Cluster Pays slots than standard 5-reel and multiple line video slots.

Special Features

Cash-O-Matic has an avalanche feature worked into its design, and this is quite handy. Avalanche features, collapsing reels and other goodies are all the rage at the minute, so the fact that NetEnt has stuffed one in here will surprise no-one. The avalanche feature is triggered following any win on the reels. Winning icons will remain in place, while new ones replace all non-winning ones. In theory, players are getting an extra chance to try and add to that combo. Players can also land increasing multipliers with every successive winning combo they land in this manner, with those multipliers capped at 10x the rate of pay.

Unfortunately, there is no wild icon in the Cash-O-Matic slot. However, there are other goodies which can help. Scatter symbols can trigger a free spin bonus round, for instance. However, you won’t trigger the free spins feature in the usual way, by collecting three such symbols. In this odd slot, something more bizarre is needed. 

Bonus Features

To trigger the free spin bonus in Cash-O-Matic, players are required to collect 10 or more scatters. These can be rapidly acquired by landing successive avalanche wins. Once ten have been collected, the bonus begins. Players will land a certain number of spins, based on how many scatters they have accumulated. Players will also note that multipliers come into play with increasing regularity during this round, while players can bag extra spins by filling up rows of symbols, too.

Overview

Cash-O-Matic is undoubtedly something of an odd-ball in Net Entertainment’s library. The Scandinavian casino games software developer usually pulls stuff out of the bag when it comes to original games, and this relatively new game is certainly that. The lack of a wild and the small stature of the non-progressive jackpot are slight causes for concern, but the multipliers and avalanche features go some way to help players overlook those facts. Whether Cash-O-Matic has enough about it to impress, though, remains to be seen.
