Coral Cash Slots

Coral-CashCoral Cash looks like a typical ocean themed slot machine, but in fact it uses the coral as inspiration more than anything else, or at least that’s what it’s trying to do. One of nature’s most beautiful creations, the coral, is a living organism that takes a very long time to grow, yet people can destroy it way too easily. It’s yet another game from Cryptologic that looks like it’s one of their earlier titles, so you’re not going to be impressed with how the graphics look. It’s a shame, especially since games with this sort of theme can look stunning if they’re approached correctly.

Coral Cash is a 5 reel slot machine, with a $40,000 jackpot which you can win by placing bets on its 9 paylines. There are four or five different types of features inside, which makes this a game above average in that respect. Among them, you will notice the free spins and multipliers especially, but also the scatters and wilds that help trigger them.

Features of Coral Cash

The feature list in Coral Cash is big enough to make it a plus in its favor, with the usual set of scatters and wilds, plus the free games and the multipliers that they bring forward.

The wild symbol is the most attractive of the lot, with the image of a girl going in the ocean for a swim. While acting as a substitute, the girl can replace any other regular symbol, and hopefully that will mean a combination being formed. Some of the better paying symbols require only two matching icons to get a payout to the player, so the wild doesn’t need much to form a combo. On its own, the Girl can award the top jackpot, 8,000 coins and a value of up to $40,000.

The Coral image gives you a pretty good idea of how beautiful it can be, with orange and pink being the predominant colors in this case. Thanks to the scatter role it comes with, the Coral is capable of giving you prizes of up to 100 times the amount you wagered, as long as you get multiple matching symbols in any random position.

Free Games Feature

If you look at just the feature symbols alone, you don’t see anything special. They do their job and they award prizes, but both of them have to work together to get you into the free spins feature. With the Girl appearing on the 1st reel, while the Coral is on the 5th reel, you get a round with 15 free spins and a x3 multiplier. It’s a pretty decent combination, and when you consider that the top jackpot can be worth $120,000 instead of the original $40,000, you can see why it’s a favorite of mine.


Betting options and jackpots

The most you can spend in one round in Coral Cash is $45, that amount being split between the 9 lines available, with one $5 coin used in each case. There are a few different ways you can go about reducing the bet size, one of them being the use of fewer coins (activating fewer lines), while another would be a smaller coin denomination (minimum is $0.05).

If you do decide to use the bigger coins, you can expect a cash payout of up to $40,000, if you get the 8,000x jackpot provided inside. The Rapid Fire Jackpot is a progressive prize that is also winnable in Coral Cash. To get a better chance at winning it, you should use larger bets.

Design and symbols

Though underwater themed slot machines tend to be good looking, Coral Cash doesn’t really impress. I guess the background image is to blame, which instead of showing you dark blue waters filled with life, give you a gray area that I’m guessing is the earth beneath the coral. Some of the symbols do look very good, but since first impressions matter, this game could do with a little bit of extra work.

Symbols: Girl (wild, 8,000x), Coral (scatter, 100x bet), Green Fish (2,000x), Dolphin (1,000x), Flippers (500x), Goggles (500x), Gray Fish (200x), Seahorse (200x), Shell (150x), Clam (150x), Pearl Shell (100x) and Starfish (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I’d say yes, despite the unconvincing graphics Coral Cash provides you with all the features you could want, plus the chance of tripling the original jackpot’s value, if you win it at just the right time.

The Coral Cash slot machine is offered through the Cryptologic platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
