The Walking Dead: Cash Collect Review
If you ever wanted to visit the Alexandria Safe Zone in The Walking Dead, then you have now found your chance. The latest The Walking Dead slot, The Walking Dead: Cash Collect, takes you to the famed location with a whole host of survivors.
This slot picks up from The Walking Dead 2 but Rick Grimes has officially left. It's now up to Negan, Michonne and Daryl to lead humanity in this slot. Throughout the game, you'll encounter multiple free spins rounds, fixed jackpots and the Cash Collect mechanic leading to safety (and big wins).
When the slot opens up, you'll be greeted with a background of the Alexandria Safe Zone. It's a still from the show enhanced through extra drawings adding more depth to the image. Sadly, this is a static image which is a little disappointing.
This slot takes place in the later seasons of The Walking Dead as Rick is gone. Instead, you'll find Carol (Melissa McBride), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Thankfully, these are the actual character models and it makes the slot feel more official with these portraits.
One of the coolest things about this slot is that cutscenes play during a massive win meaning that you can see your favourite characters in action. Additionally, there are animations of walkers (aka zombies) on the reels at random moments which is cool to see. We're disappointed that the music is not from the show, but it manages to add tension throughout.
The gameplay is similar to the previous games but manages to enhance the experience with the Cash Collect feature. This means that everything relies on the Cash Collect and it's always exciting to see those symbols appear.
With the Cash Collect feature, multiple free spins can be triggered as well as fixed jackpots. During the free spins rounds, there are special features depending on the mode such as walking symbols during Commonwealth Free Games.
Overall, the game experience is nothing too complicated making it perfect for newcomers or casual players looking for a simple experience with thrilling wins.
The biggest win in this slot comes from the bonus round 'Danger Zone Free Games' where multipliers of up to x15 can land. If a multiplier of x15 lands with the fixed jackpot, then up to 15,000x stake can be awarded. It's the highest amount in the series so far and will definitely appeal to players.
Like the previous The Walking Dead slots, this game contains a medium volatility level paired with an RTP under the average level. However, we are happy to report that the RTP is the best yet in the series at 95.72%. Whilst this is annoying that it's low, it's not too under the limit to make the game unplayable.
It's safe to say that this is the best slot yet in The Walking Dead series. Of course, the design still could be better, but the gameplay and win potential are absolutely fantastic. The Walking Dead: Cash Collect easily surpasses the previous slots and sets a new high standard for this series.
Playtech has definitely surpassed itself and we cannot wait to see where else this slot series goes. Perhaps in the future, we may even see a progressive jackpot making it absolutely unmissable!
