The Simbat software developing company stands behind this entertaining creation. The online Cash Wheel slot machine is everything but ordinary. It represents a juncture of several games. The first, the second and the third are, in fact, a classic 3-reeled online fruit slot (Basic level, Club mode 5 and Club mode 10) and the fourth comes in the form of the popular wheel of fortune (Magic Circle game). These games are perfectly fitted into the design of the pokie, which resembles an old-fashioned fruit machine, so all those players who are into retro designed pokies will certainly enjoy this amusing online video slot.
The interface is very well arranged, although on the first glance it looks a little bit overcrowded with info. The developers have decided to place all paytable data directly on the gameplay screen, beneath the reels in the Basic level and on the right of the Cash circle in the Club mode. All control buttons, except for the “STOP WHEEL” button, which lies next to the Cash wheel, can be found on the bottom of the screen.
The Cash Wheel slot contains a 3×3 reel scheme in all three bottom levels (3 reels and 3 bet lines). One plays the Basic mode at first with a total bet of 1 credit and with only 1 active payline. When one manages to collect 4 credits on the saving meters, he will unlock the Club 5 and wager 5 credits. Same goes for the Club 10. These two Top levels are played on the same set of reels as in the Basic mode. However, there is one slight difference: one can score a payout for the criss-cross combinations also! The player can change between all modes simply by clicking the “CHOOSE GAME” button.
The maximum payout in the Basic game is 25 credits, and the same parameter in the Top level is 200 credits. The theoretical return to player percentage is around 94%.
This pokie doesn’t contain special symbols, such as the wild and the scatter. There is also a lack of the free spins feature and multipliers. The autoplay option is included and can be found next to that lever on the right.
The additional bonus feature is included and it comes in the form of the previously mentioned Magic Circle. In order to progress to this bonus round, one must first manage to form a criss-cross combination of three stars, unbounded whether they are blue or red.
One can play this pokie totally free of any charge, without having to download or to register. The possession of the Adobe Flash player is necessary in order to run the interface. A mobile version of this amusing pokie hasn’t been released yet, so one would have to use a desktop/laptop in order to enjoy it.
