Kanga Cash Slots

Kanga-CashCryptologic is the developer behind Kanga Cash, one of the very few slot machines that get their inspiration from the Australian outback. It’s a beautiful place, though not in a conventional way, and also a very dangerous one. It’s a desert like environment where very few people live, and where there are animals that you don’t find anywhere else. The koala bear is just one example, the kangaroo another, of animals that the Australian desert has. The game and this theme would’ve deserved much better graphics than it got.

The game’s 5 reels gets only 9 paylines, so there aren’t as many chances for a winning combo in it. On the other hand, the game is full of great features, with free games, multipliers, scatter symbols and wilds all available. The payout is the best one though, with $120,000 being the cash value of the jackpot.

Features of Kanga Cash

Though graphics wise you might not be impressed by Kanga Cash, the features look much better on paper. The special symbols are the usual ones, meaning a scatter and a wild. Their appearance will also signal the presence of free games, bonus rounds and multipliers.

One of the main symbols in Kanga Cash has a simple shed on it, not a terribly glamorous image, but one that can be seen quite often in the Australian outback. If you’ve played slots before, you probably know how scatters work. In case you don’t, a scatter is the kind of symbol that doesn’t have to occupy the same payline with matching icons. Instead, the prizes offered depend only on the number of symbols that are present on the screen, in any random position. With just two scatters present somewhere, your reward is worth the equivalent of a wager. With each additional scatter, the prize goes up, the maximum being the equivalent of 200 bets (it uses that round’s total bet as a basis).

The Kangaroo is the most well known and representative image for the Australian wildlife. You will find that it appears on the 1st and 5th reels only, and from there it can substitute for another symbol and hopefully get a new combo formed. A 2 coin prize is offered for each wild that appears, but that’s it for its payouts. When a wild substitutes for another symbol, and it helps a new combo be formed, the payout doubles thanks to the multiplier that is present.


Free Games Feature

Though this is something that is usually reserved for the scatter symbol, the free games require wild symbols to get started. You only need two wilds for that to happen, one of them on the 1st reel, the other on the 5th.

The resulting feature will get you 15 free spins, with payouts taking advantage of a 3x multiplier. You can retrigger the free spins multiple times, but in each case you need the same two wilds on the screen.

Betting options and jackpots

Despite the presence of only 9 lines, Kanga Cash has pretty large wager requirements, going up to $180. It uses $20 coins at the highest setting, while the lowest one is at $1.

The best paying combo will give you 3,000 coins, or up to $60,000. With a Kangaroo wild part of the combo, the payout doubles, to $120,000. It’s more than a decent prize, even for a wager of $180.

Design and symbols

The Australian outback theme is quite rare, but the actual design is not the most appealing one I could think of. It’s mostly a problem with the design style, not the choice of images. They have multiple animals and birds that look pretty great in real life, but the game doesn’t manage to send the message across. A picture with the outback and the shed where the main character lives is in the background.

Symbols: Kangaroo (wild, 2x), Shed (scatter, 200x triggering wager), Man (3,000x), Koala Bear (1,000x), Australian Shepherd (500x), Emu Bird (500x), Cockatoo (300x), Hat (300x), Flower (200x), Trees (200x), Beer Can (100x) and Pot with food (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The Australian inspired theme is a good reason to try out Kanga Cash, but you will not feel like staying for long once you see its design. Luckily, there is a long enough list of features to keep you busy, plus a generous top prize.

You will find Kanga Cash at any online casino which chooses to use software from Cryptologic, playable either for free or for real money.
