Cash Strike is a casino slot from Octoplay where a rather basic theme and a seemingly basic mechanic merge into a surprisingly enjoyable game.
By now, we’ve tried plenty of games from Octoplay, and we are yet to be super disappointed by any of them. Sure, some games are less exciting than others, but the standard is really high. Many new providers just “borrow” mechanics from other providers, which makes it impossible to surpass the big actors. Octoplay has taken a different approach and makes sure to apply at least slight changes to popular features to make them feel new. In Cash Strike, this is also the case, although it feels like a book game in many ways. Let’s dig in!
Cash Strike is a video slot from Octoplay with a setup of 5 reels, 4 rows, and 20 paylines. Players can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.20 or a Max.bet of 50. The game has an RTP of 95.72%, which is slightly below the industry average but not all that bad. Cash Strike is played at low volatility and can net a max win of 2000x the bet.
Cash Strike is a very simple game without too many mechanics. The features are Scatter Symbol, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
The game has somewhat of a futuristic theme. Orange, diagonal lines are constantly crossing the background, making the game feel more engaging and responsive. Other than that, though, the graphics are very basic and simply look like a “simple” slot game.
Cash Strike can be played on all common mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels within the game’s lines, starting from the leftmost reel.
The lower-paying symbols consist of 10, J, Q, K and A. A full line of 5 with these pays 1x-5x the bet. The higher-paying symbols consist of bars, stars, clovers, and bells. Five-of-a-kind with these pays 10x-50x the bet. A book with “Free Spins” written in it acts as the Scatter Symbol, which you need 3 of to trigger the Free Spins feature.
What is the max win in the slot Cash Strike?
You can win up to 2000x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Cash Strike?
The features are Scatter Symbol, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
Landing 3 Scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins feature.
When the Free Spins feature is triggered, you’re awarded 10 Free Spins. At the start of Free Spins, a random paying symbol is chosen to be converted to a Golden Cash prize for the duration of Free Spins.
Higher-paying symbols have higher values. Depending on your Golden Cash symbol, and just like in a book game, three lower-paying symbols or 2 higher-paying symbols will trigger an expansion, where each Golden Cash symbol expands to cover all positions on its respective reel. When expanded, all cash prizes are collected and won. If you land a Crown symbol on the same spin as you expand your Golden symbols, it will either double the Cash Prize amount, or add 5x or 10x to each Golden symbol.
The Free Spins feature can be bought at a cost of 100x the bet.
Upon entering the game, we saw the book symbol and were instantly worried that this was just another book game in the endless pile of them. But as we tried out some bonus rounds, we realized that it wasn’t just another re-skin. Sure, it’s still about getting an expanding symbol and landing many of it to net big wins, but the crowns make it a whole lot more exciting than that.
Of course, Book of Ra and Book of Dead come to mind when thinking of book games, but other than that, it’s the ones that have implemented new mechanics that we remember. Book of Golden Sands and Book of Sam are examples of this, as they both had some nice little tweaks that made it all that more exciting. So does Cash Strike, and therefore it might be worth giving it a go, but the graphics and relatively low potential make it hard to get too excited.
Cash Strike by Octoplay is a simple game with a nice touch on slot’s most prominent feature.
