Cash Bonanza Review
Cash Bonanza is a high volatility slot developed by Pragmatic Play. This 6-reel, 4,069 ways to win slot can grow to a grand total of 262,144 ways to win thanks to its innovative increasing ways respin feature that sees sticky symbols remain on the reels for a number of respins. With a free spins feature and an increasing win multipler players can win up to 5,000x their stake when playing this exciting fruit-machine themed slot.
The reels of this game are designed to look like they're placed within a high-security bank vault that's filled with cash and gold! Strangely, the game symbols in this slot don't actually match the overall theme of the game... Cash Bonanza looks and feels like a luxury-themed slot yet boasts fruit-machine symbols. It's quite disappointing and feels like Pragmatic Play have gone for a quick win by putting symbols from another game into this one, rather than designing bespoke artwork.
Low paying symbols in Cash Bonanza include a watermelon, orange, lemon, plum, cherries and a bunch of grapes. High paying symbols include a four-leaf clover, bell, star and 7. Special symbols are much better suited to the game, the wild is a pile of emeralds and the scatter is a golden vault door.
We're not sure what the deal is with the soundtrack, again, it doesn't really match the overall theme of the slot... That being said, music is better than no music so we can't complain too much.
At first glance, Cash Bonanza looks like your standard 6-reel slot, however, it's quite clear this slot is different once the reels start spinning. All winning symbols in this slot become sticky and remain on the reels for a respin. In addition to sticking in place, winning symbols shrink to allow for new symbols and more ways to win to squeeze onto the reel.
This high volatility slot has a default RTP of 96.52% (however it has RTP ranges and slot sites can lower the RTP to 95.55% or 94.50%). The maximum win players can achieve when playing Cash Bonanza is 5,000x their stake, big wins usually come by way of the free spins feature when the sticky symbols lock into place.
We're a big fan of Cash Bonanza's Increasing Ways Respin feature, it's definitely the most engaging element of this game. Unfortunately, that's really where our infatuation ends... The generic design elements ruin what is a genuinely decent slot! Had Pragmatic Play taken a bit more time to make this slot look unique and different to anything we'd already seen before then it'd certainly be better rated.
