We sat down with Kalamba Games to talk about the brand-new slot FruitMax: Cashlinez
Not content with the current state of fruit machine slots, Kalamba Games decided it was time to create a refreshing fruit slot that combines bingo staples with innovative design to deliver something unique. This is evidently what the slot developer achieved with the FruitMax: Cashlinez.
It's safe to say that there is no other slot quite like FruitMax: Cashlinez as it contains all the right elements to create an iconic online slot. Thankfully, the team at Slot Gods managed to speak to Piotr Simon, the Product Owner at Kalamba, to gain an exclusive insight into the impressive slot and find out exactly what players can expect from this new release.
What was some of the inspiration for FruitMax: Cashlinez and how does this influence work its way into the game’s overall design?
Piotr Simon: FruitMax: Cashlinez has a variety of influences on its design, which also feed into the exciting gameplay mechanics found within the game. Set across 5x3 reels, the slot has a distinctly Las Vegas feel to it, drawing upon traditional fruit machine symbols to portray winning icons that demonstrate our passion for the titles found there, and those that we think players will enjoy.
We also wanted to blend elements more commonly associated with bingo into FruitMax: Cashlinez such as with the gathering of numbers within specific places feeding into our decision to have a highlighted row where cash prizes can be triggered. Additionally, behind the gameplay, bingo balls are being spun in a machine to emphasise the influence felt throughout the slot.

This is further illustrated in the free spins game where the creation of preset lines, patterns and even a full house within the bonus is made possible through the collection of held symbols and is key to unlocking the title’s huge max win of 12,000x!
With multiple lines present and players aiming towards the creation of a full house, our intentions of having a bingo influence are expressed both within the gameplay and design of FruitMax: Cashlinez. I’m sure players will enjoy the blend of these classic elements into an innovative slot.
K- Cash Spins can also award an overall multiplier to accumulated instant cash prizes can you tell us more about this?
Piotr Simon: We have included a highlighted row into the base game of FruitMax: Cashlinez which will activate all K-Cash symbols landed there. These will be gathered above the reel that they landed on and held for three spins. This is reset after any additional K-Cash symbols are landed on the highlighted row.
These can increase the held values gathered or also be held above the reels. The feature triggers when all five positions above the five reels are filled by a K-Cash symbol. The sum of the accumulated values of these symbols is then multiplied by a randomly selected multiplier and paid to players.
This feature works alongside more traditional gameplay with 243 winning ways being available across the title and combinations of symbols needed to award wins. Wilds are also present within the game which substitute all symbols except the K-Cash symbols making it easier for players to create winning combinations. The mixture of these mechanics creates engaging and entertaining gameplay throughout the base game.
The Cashlinez bonus is unique in its gameplay, can you elaborate as to what players can expect from this?
Piotr Simon: Awarded for activating three K- Cash symbols during any spin, the free spins round initially awards three respins to the player. Transporting them to a 5x5 grid with 10 patterns surrounding the game board, these patterns are the Cashlinez needed to unlock additional modifiers to the accumulated amount of prizes.
Each K-Cash symbol is held throughout the bonus round with additional symbols resetting the three spins. Players then need to land as many symbols as possible in specific places to mirror the patterns shown around the gameboard.
The patterns unlock a variety of multipliers to the accumulated sum of all K-Cash symbols gathered, for example, the creation of two horizontal lines awards a 3x multiplier whereas the filling of all tiles around the edge of the game board awards a 10x multiplier. Creating a full house will randomly award a special multiplier between either 50x to 200x boosting wins gained astronomically!
For our non-UK players, there are multiple bonus buy options available. How do these differentiate themselves from each other?
Piotr Simon: There are three bonus buy options available that allow players to experience the free spins round in different ways and are available to cater for varying budgets. The unique core gameplay in the free spins round remains similar, however, the number of resetting spins awarded is the main differentiator.
At the lower end of the spectrum, three resetting respins are awarded whereas at the higher end players can be awarded five resetting respins! This allows for increased chances of additional K-Cash symbols to be landed which inevitably aid in the lucrative full house multiplier being added to the accumulated K-Cash symbols gathered.
What does the rest of 2022 have in store for Kalamba Games?
Piotr Simon: 2022 has been a momentous year of growth and expansion for Kalamba Games and we intend to continue this trajectory throughout the latter part of the year.
Following the release of FruitMax: Cashlinez we have our next title Football Blast which aims to ramp up excitement for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. We also have the next title in our popular Joker series of games, Joker Fortune Blitz to look forward to as well as our third premium Megaways release, Phat Cats!
Along with these incredible and innovative slot releases, we will also be expanding our footprint across the world through partnerships with additional operators that will allow more players than ever to experience Kalamba titles from our vast portfolio of high-quality games.
