Microgaming is one of the world leaders in online slots games, having been the first company of its kind to release online casino software in 1994 and mobile casino games in 2004.
With a 5-reel Cash Splash slot, they have devised a follow-up to their top-rated Cash Splash 3 reel slot, but do not fret if you haven’t played the original version; this is an easy game to get into.
The game is a straight-up recreation of an old-style fruit machine, so the five reels and three-row set-up are not set to a fancy or detailed background. However, the game is colourful and is easy on the eyes. The symbols here are represented by playing cards ranging from 10 to Ace, cherries, the classic BAR symbol, a wad of cash, and the Cash Splash symbol itself.
The game comes with a Return Player ratio of 91%, which is at the low end. However, this game contains a progressive jackpot, and the good news is that Microgaming has some of the best progressive jackpots around, offering life-changing amounts of money. All winning lines pay from left to right, except for the scatters that pay in any direction should you land three or more.
When it comes to betting, there is a minimum stake of 20c, whilst the maximum you can stake on a single spin is $300.
The progressive jackpot in this game is only available to win if you have all 15 pay lines activated and you stake the maximum amount to win it, and you need to land five wild symbols on the 15th pay line.
Because this game is a recreation of a traditional fruit machine game, there are no bonus games, no free spins or multipliers either, as this game is all about getting that elusive progressive jackpot.
The scatter symbol is a red and blue circle with the word ‘SCATTER’ emblazoned across it, and it will multiply your winnings four-fold if you are lucky enough to get 3 of them on a pay line. However, land five, and you will receive 250x your bet stake.
On the other hand, the wild symbol will multiply any winnings you get when it lands on a winning pay line, and the more you get, your winnings will be multiplied even more. This game’s wild symbol is the Cash Splash logo, and it substitutes all the other symbols on a winning line except the scatter symbol.
The lack of a free spins feature may deter some people; however, this game is all about the progressive jackpot, which, when landed on, can provide some sizeable winnings indeed. Because there are no bonus games, this is one of the more accessible games to pick up and play and will appeal to those who are new to online slot games and those more experienced gamblers looking to land that elusive progressive jackpot.
