At more than a decade old, first being launched in 2005, Cashville is one of the most well known Microgaming slot games out there, and is still extremely popular. Thankfully, though, it has had a bit of a facelift over the years, so the graphics are as crisp as modern slots.
Its theme still shows its age though, with hints back to a time where brightly coloured reels, colourful and gaudy symbols and slimey looking characters were all the rage in slot game design!
Don’t let this put you off though, as the actual game play is still up there with modern games with great bonus features which make it highly enjoyable to play and the opportunity for big wins.
Down to Business
This 5-reel, 20 win line slot machine comes from Microgaming, and offers a whopping $100,000 top purse. That may of got your attention, and certainly deserves a few spins!
Cashville uses coins as your stakes, and you can set the value of these from 0.01 to 0.20, with up to 200 coins able to be staked per spin. It’s ideal for those looking to bet just a little, but the higher rollers looking to go for that large jackpot will still be interested, too.
The wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol other than the scatter symbol, Bonus Coin or the four characters symbols – Bill Bullion, Dame Von Deeds, Sir Sterling and Bette Boodle.
The scatter symbol nets you a win if you get 3 or more showing on any of the 5 reels at any one time.
Cashville’s bonus game is activated by hitting 3 or more Bonus Coins on an active pay line, and is actually a choice of four different games. After activating this round you can pick from one of the four main characters, each of which has a different feature you can play.
Bill Bullion is an oil baron, and you get to select one of his 6 oil rigs. Each of these is hiding a cash prize.
Dame Von Deeds has a selection of 8 deeds for you to choose between, again each of which is hiding a cash prize.
Sir Sterling, clearly extremely rich in cash, has 9 vaults to choose from, inside each of which is a cash prize.
Bette Boodles, who we can only presume is a lover of dogs, has 5 rather fetching dog portraits to choose between. Again behind each one is a different value cash prize.
If you have any win on an activated pay line, then a quick bonus gamble round appears. This allows you to guess the colour of the next playing cardto be drawn from the pack, a simple red or black. Guess it correctly and your winnings are doubled. But be careful, as guess incorrectly and you can lose your winnings too.
Don’t worry, you can also pick not to gamble and keep your winnings… but where is the fun in that?
