Inspired Gaming’s Gold Cash slot is just what you’d expect from such a promising title: a hoard of gold bullion and a world of cash, with plenty of reel to spin to go after it!
And if, like this wombat, you love to feel a little bit James Bond from time to time, this game will have you ready to take on Goldfinger and his henchman Oddjob. This is a game that’s a treat for those of us who like to put on our glad rags from time to time and hit the slot machines in style before sauntering off to the tables.
Watch out, there’s a mountain-worth of gold up for grabs on the reels. If you know Inspired Gaming, the makers of the Atlantis: City of Destiny slot, that won’t come as a surprise.
There are three variations of this game: the original, Gold Cash Free Spins (with a free spins bonus round of course) and a variant called Big Spins which has an expanded reel set (six reels). That’s the one that we will focus on here.
Look and Feel
Gold Cash is all about the money. Well, that and a bank vault full of the yellow stuff. It’s no surprise then, that gold dominates proceedings on the reels. The glitzy reels are set against a regal red velvet background – this game takes opulence to the next level. Gooooold Fingerrrrr! It makes games like the Cashomatic slot look a bit drab (but then I think that was the idea…)
While you spin the reels, soak in the upbeat musak that keeps the game play energetic and full of dramatic atmosphere. Woah, I thought I’d woken up in a five star hotel list there. It’s all a bit cheesy and a bucket load of fun.
Gold Cash Game Play
Gold Cash slot (the Big Spins version) takes place over four rows, six reels and fifty pay-lines. Well, that’s one more reel and a whole load more pay-lines than the 20p Shot slot which is also from Inspired Gaming!
This lavish game is a visual peach across all your mobile devices as well as your desktop. You might want to play it on a gold iPhone for maximum effect.
No prizes for guessing the high value icons on the reels. Yup, it’s a pyramid of gold bars, just to make sure that you know what’s at stake. Five of this symbols on an active pay-line could have you harvesting a nice little earner. Not half bad, wombat fans.
The other items that could make you a mint, are a smaller set of three gold ingots, and two extra big cash bundles. The lower value icons are the King, Queen and Jack of the card deck.
The word “Wild” on an astral multi-coloured background substitutes for all icons, except the Scatter. The Scatter is a silver coin with a gold edge.
Let’s get to the meat and potatoes shall we? The bonuses.
Spin Chance is a new bonus element that Inspired Gaming is bringing to the party on some of their games, like this game’s sibling Bear Money.
So what exactly is a Spin Chance? Well, it’s where your pot of dosh is too low to buy a formal spin. There’s hope for your game though, if you take a “spin chance” you can find yourself with a fully paid free spin, or lose your loose change to the game.
Spin Chance is a winning gimmick that might just catch on with slot fans. After all, who doesn’t like a freebie?
There’s also a Gamble feature that comes with a difference from the usual. After any win, you can choose whether you’ve got the nerve to amble with the gamble ladder. Essentially you need some speedy reactions to click at the screen at the right moment and win the chance to scale the ladder to win bigger returns. Up you go Wombat fans.
Gold Cash slot isn’t a complex new game but it’s a solid addition from Inspired Gaming with some novel extras in the Spin Chance and a Gamble ladder. This game comes with some attractive digits, and we’d rank it as a medium variance game. It’s true that diamonds are a wombat’s best friend, but gold bars will also do!
Wombat Score: 4 out of 5
