Leave it to casino game developer NetEnt to take something basic and make it interesting. This is what they've done with the Cash-O-Matic slot, which brings a bland-looking video slot but mixes in some side elements to kick things up a notch.
Cash-O-Matic is a 5 reel, 1024 ways to win video slot that harkens back to a time when things were a bit simpler. The game features a bunch of generic slot symbols (10, J, Q, K, A) as well as various gems, such as: purple triangles, blue squares, green pentagons, orange octagons, and red stars. These are generic and pretty lame, but they've been combined with some intriguing features that spice up the action.
These features include cascading wins, free spins, stacked symbols, win multipliers, and sticky wins. The action is reminiscent of a game like Jack Hammer, albeit with none of the personality that you get with the comic book style slot.
The game's features, along with the many ways to win give Cash-O-Matic a posted return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.3%, which is about standard for what we see from online video slots these days.
The game is playable on both desktop and mobile formats, allowing you the chance to play on your smartphone and tablet. The game looks equally well on both, with no drop in quality or features between platforms.
I do have to say that this game is a bit on the bland side, but I found the gameplay to make this well worth playing. This is an experience that I really enjoyed, and even though it doesn't usurp my favorite NetEnt games, it's one that I'll probably end up bringing into my standard rotation. If you're looking for something new that looks like something old, this online slot is a great choice.
