New Cash-o-Matic™ slot brings reversed Avalanche feature to the reels
The Avalanche feature was first introduced in Gonzo’s Quest™, launched in 2011! For 8 years, players have been enjoying the adventures of the quirky conquistador, but even more did they enjoy the iconic Avalanche feature which was invented to replace the traditional reel spin with symbols cascading down the screen like falling rocks. After 8 years, NetEnt flipped this slot feature on its head with the new Cash-o-Matic™ slot being the first to introduce a reversed version of the Avalanche feature.
Antique machine, innovative slot feature
Another high-volatility game has arrived at the NetEnt Casinos and this time players get to enjoy a true homage to the oldest slot machine, the Liberty Bell of which you’ll find an extended explanation in the Cash-o-Matic Touch® review. This is the mobile version of the game, but obviously the same goes for the traditional desktop version.
It’s obvious that the new Cash-o-Matic™ slot has been inspired by the antique slots of which the proof can be found in the details as if you’re playing an old-fashioned one-armed bandit. However, this only goes for the design of the game, because the video slot game itself is everything except antique. The Starburst-type of symbols weren’t available on the reels at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the first proof of a modern gameplay.
The modern slot features are providing another piece of proof that the Cash-o-Matic™ slot isn’t fully antique and the biggest innovation found in the newest NetEnt video slot is the reversed Avalanche feature, even though the feature in general isn’t that innovation any more after being around for 8 years. Since the introduction in the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot, this video slot feature has been added to several games including Wild Worlds™, Elements™, Pyramid™, Emoji Planet™. Cosmic Fortune™, and Asgardian Stone™.
Now again, the Avalanche feature is returning to the reels, but this new, retro-looking title has flipped NetEnt’s proprietary Avalanche feature on its head. Now operating in reverse, the Avalanche feature sees all winning symbols remain on the reels, while the rest disappear.
The usual version was designed to let the winning symbols disappear, but the Cash-o-Matic slot turns it all around and sticks to the winning symbols while all useless symbols silently disappear off the reels, making place for new symbols while the Level Multiplier is awarded if at least one row is filled with winning symbols. The more rows, the higher the Multiplier value. In Free Spins, the Multiplier depends on the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins and can go as high as x50.
“We’re pleased to present the Cash-O-Matic™ slot, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell. High volatility reverse Avalanche action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
Cash-O-Matic™ is full of Free Spins and Multipliers. The number of Free Spins awarded equals the amount of Scatter symbols collected, with a minimum of 10 Free Spins there to be won. With Scatter lengths of up to 18, the number of Free Spins can get really high.
