NextGen knows how to create games that entertain, and give you the potential for big wins, but has this Cash Stampede slot theme gone slightly too far?
When we opened up this Cash Stampede video slot we were greeted with a stormy dark purple theme over cracked dry plains. It definitely adds to the atmosphere in this 243 ways to win game, however the addition of the almost vulgar shiny gold reels surround, logo, and even the striking angular symbols, will be too much for some.
They don’t gel together well, and if they would have just toned it down a little, it would have had a better look and feel. That’s our opinion, but at the end of the day the theme is only half the story – the game play is the gold standard to judge.
You’ll find brightly coloured, and action ready, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, zebras, antelope, and horses as the higher paying symbols. Then, there’s the shiny angular A – 10 symbols as the lower ones.
But, ultimately, you’ll only have eyes for the animals, as it’s these, mixed with the wild symbols, which will give you a stampede of wins.
There is no shortage of 243 ways to win slots online, or on mobile. We’ve seen them done well, with the likes of Microgaming’s Rugby Star slot, Play’n GO’s Enchanted Crystals, and NextGen’s own Medusa II.
It’s now become such a common format that slots developers have had to add little extra spice to the ways you can get winning combinations, to add extra thrills to the games.
But what truly gives this Cash Stampede casino game it’s thrills is that of the Re-Spin feature, which occurs frequently in the base game and free spins, and gives you a chance at some prolific wins.
The re-spins only occur when the wild symbol substitutes on a winning payline for any animal symbols. This will grant a free re-spin with those symbols held in place.
If on the re-spin any more of the triggering symbols appear, they will be held, and another re-spin granted until no more appear.
A feature that we’ve seen create wins over 150x our bet with even bigger possible, and was made popular in games like NetEnt’s Jack Hammer.
And that’s not all that’s in store for you in this Cash Stampede slot.
The symbol that we are yet to mention is that of the super shiny gold ‘BONUS’ symbol, which acts as the scatter.
When three scatters appear on reel 2, 3 and 4, you’ll not only win 50x your bet, but also 8 free games.
For the duration of the free games the centre symbol on reel 3 will remain wild. This gives you a head start in triggering the potentially high value re-spins.
We’ve encountered wins over 200x our bet with the right animal symbols covering the reels. But on just as many occasions won only 10 – 20x our bet.
If luck is on your side, then there are some big wins here, much like you’ll find in the 300 Shields and Titan Storm slots.
Plus the fact that you can trigger the free spins around every 50 – 100 spins in the base game, and re-trigger them from within, gives you plenty of high thrill, high value entertainment.
The game play and mechanics of this Cash Stampede slot are impressive, giving you plenty of action, and huge wins.
And whilst the theme is a little gaudy to play longterm online, it is also available to play on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone and iPad.
On the small screen, the Cash Stampede mobile slot graphics are far more forgiving.
A betting range of 0.25 up to 50.00 doesn’t allow high limit slots players to bet big, or win huge, but does give the average gambler plenty of room to move their bet for bigers wins.
Probably not an online slot game for beginners, and one that is more suited to those with the budget and patience to withstand the constant barrage of stampeding animals.
With a decent return to player rate of 95.27% this is a game that will entertain – whether you end up with a stampede of golden coins or dry dusty grounds.Play Now at NextCasino »
