Just about anything can inspire the designers of Play’n GO, even a gas station. That’s why they released Cash Pump, a fun slot with four sets of 3x3 reels with a total of 20 paylines. One wouldn’t imagine the theme to be that interesting, but the providers managed to make this simple idea into one great game. Not only that, it has some creative features that pay quite well, which is the most important part after all.
The designers have once again impressed with their work by making an everyday thing into a super fun game. No one really thinks about gas stations. They are places that the average person visits quite often out of need. Usually, not that fun of an experience, gas pumps managed to inspire the providers to release a game that's definitely going to impress.
The reels are placed on the screen of a gas pump. Around them is a red rim with the pump itself and the tank that gets filed by every win. The background is the road with just about nothing around it. There are fields of grass with mountains in the back and a cloudy blue sky. The scene reminds of a road trip and a quick gas stop, which is always fun. The soundtrack reminds of country music and is very cheerful contributing to the ‘on the road’ scene.
The graphics are amazing as expected from the provider. The symbols include all the classics usually seen if fruit-themed slots. There is the bar symbol, triple seven, cherries, plums, oranges, and watermelons. The game's wild character is the driver with his awesome blue helmet, which is also the only symbol related to the theme. To incorporate fruit in was not a bad idea at all and it unexpectedly doesn’t clash with the theme.
The gameplay is good as well. The four sets of reels allow combinations to form much easier. The player can bet a minimum of 0,20 and a maximum of a 100 coins per spin. The games generous 96,86% RTP goes great in combination with the high volatility of the game. The payouts are very good as well and go as high as 10,000x the stake.
With a max win that big, the features of the game have to be great. First to mention is the game’s wild symbol that is an expanding wild that carries multipliers up to 4x. Since there are four sets of reels, the wild has to cover one middle reel in order to be able to spread on the other sets of reels.
The Free Spins feature is where the money is at and that is why it is a little bit harder to trigger. The player needs to land a scatter symbol in the middle reel on all four sets to activate the round. When activated the player gets 7 free spins. It does not seem like much, but every time a scatter appears anywhere on the reels during the round, the player gets an additional 5 free spins. Another great thing about this round is that it has unlimited multipliers that increase by every spin.
The game has shown itself as a good one. The designers took a simple everyday object and made an interesting and creative game of it. The design of the background and characters is great. It is accompanied by cheerful music to get the player in the road trip mood. The features are exciting and have a big potential to pay very good. Overall, it is a game worth trying out.
