Gritty, wise-cracking detective Detective Tom Flint is the guide to your spins, who, years after an infamous homocide case is closed, returns to the unsolved Green Ace murders to try and crack them.

Cash Noire Slot Look And Feel
1930s America is brought to life perfectly in this stylish slot, and right from the off you’re thrown into the world of hard-boiled heroes and femme fatales. This makes that other cartoon caper, the Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot, look a bit basic! I guess that´s a three wheeler.
Each character in this epic piece of gaming fiction has been created with heaps of detail which adds shed loads of atmosphere. These are the guys and gals behind a whole range of slick slots and table games such as Rapid Roulette after all.
Look behind the reels and you’ll see a grimy street in San Cayetano, you’ll also find seedy Cat’s Eye bar and a dark room with a mysterious woman smoking besides the reels. It looks like she’s waiting for someone. Could it be you, Wombat fans?
Throughout the slot, world-weary Detective Flint narrates the action, which is also typical of the crime genre. As for the soundtrack? Well, expect a saxophone heavy ditty.
The verdict: Wombat fans, it’s been a long time since this wombat has seen a game so visually impressive.
Cash Noir slot has 5 reels, 4 row and 1024 ways to win. That´s a jump up on the Deadwood slot machine, but that´s because that game has asymmetric reels.
Wins are made by matching 5x or more matching symbols that are connected in a cluster horizontally or vertically. This is called a a cluster pay mechanic, would you believe? There´s a similar thing going on at the Reactoonz slot which is a Play ´N Go number. Just saying in case you like the set up.
Bets start at €0.20 and go up to €200 per spin – solve the case wombat fans and you could scoop wins of up to 1,033x your bet!
Avalanche Reels This slot uses the avalanche or cascading reels mechanism. Basically, symbols that form winning combinations disappear, and are replaced by falling symbols that create new chances to win!
The Crime Zone This is a very cool and slightly complicated base game feature.
On the reels you’ll see a Crime Zone that is marked out in glowing red, it will move to different places on the reels on each new spin. To the left of your screen you’ll see a board of clues – each winning symbol inside the Crime Zone unlocks a clue and when 5 clues are activated, the crime zone will expand, opening up the reels and giving you more ways to win. Hurrah!
Free Spins and Bonuses
Mystery Symbols After any no-win spin, the Mystery Symbols will transform into one regular random symbol on the reels, giving you a second chance to win. And even better, if one of the mystery symbols lands within the red hot ‘crime zone’ it will copy that same symbol onto all positions on the grid – which means big pays… Nice work NetEnt!
Free Spins Unlock all the clues on the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins! Next a chase begins as you must follow the bad guy through the city to unlock new extra spins and multipliers. You’ll also see a map on the left side of your screen and a car icon will show you where you are on it. Complete the chase and you’ll bag yourself a x10 multiplier.
During this bonus, the red Crime Zone will covers 5 spots which will really bump up those win ways.
Map Multipliers Land on the Extra Free Spins spot on the map, and 2 more Free Spins are yours for the taking. Plus, an increasing multiplier is added to your spins for every 7 locations that you pass on the map!
Look at the top of your screen and you’ll see a gauge displaying where you’ll find the Multiplier and Extra Free Spins.
Excellent and ambitious is how we would describe criminally good Cash Noire slot. The crime-novel theme works perfectly as an online slot game, and NetEnt really have gone to great lengths to re-create 1930s America. The bonuses are entertaining and there’s money to be made – especially with those Mystery Symbols. Get your detective mac on and the hit the streets of San Cayetano. It turns out crime does pay after all!
