Capital Cashpot Slots

Capital-CashpotComing from IGT, Capital Cashpot is a slot machine which seems to be inspired heavily by the British and their popular capital, mixing in a healthy dose of touristy stuff with images that are typical for slot machines. The game actually looks like a British bus, the reels being placed on the side of one. The symbols are in the same category, and they’re accompanied by a healthy dose of features. I haven’t actually seen other slot machines with similar symbols used, so this one would be a good and unique choice, even though the London theme has been used by others in the past.

Those that give Capital Cashpot a chance will find it to be a 5 reel slot machine, which is host to a total of 20 paylines. It’s also a game which offers free spins, multipliers, scatters and wilds, so you have pretty much all the major features in it. The prizes are the only ones that don’t do it justice, though the $2,000 it offers are the equivalent of a 5,000x payout.

Features of Capital Cashpot

The features which Capital Cashpot uses are typical ones these days, but you don’t always get them all in one place, like you do here. You will discover wilds with multipliers, scatter symbols and free spins which also double their prizes.

First of all, we have the famous Guard, the soldier that has to stay perfectly still, wearing his big hat and holding a gun. He is the wild symbol of Capital Cashpot, which will be used as a substitute, a way to get new combinations formed if the symbol lands exactly where it’s needed. It can only appear on the 1st and 5th reels though, so it’s somewhat limited. The 2x multiplier it applies to wins it forms will improve its usefulness, but I would’ve preferred to have this symbol on all the reels.

For this game, the scatter symbol which is used gets only the role of a prize trigger. You can get paid for just two of these Red Phone Boxes appearing on the reels, but the best payouts will come when you have all five. Prizes go as high as 200 times the bet value, which is quite a bit of money. Since it’s a scatter, having enough of these symbols is all that is required. There is no need for them to form combinations on paylines.

Free Games Feature

Quite unusually, the one triggering the free spins is the wild symbol. Having the wild appear on both reels on which it is allowed, the 1st and the 5th, during the same round, will trigger this feature.


Your reward will consist in 20 free spins, with all wins obtained along the way being multiplied by 2x. The free spins are retriggered the same way, with another two wilds appearing on the first and last reel at the same time. There is no limit to the number of times you can retrigger this feature.

Betting options and jackpots

You can use a very small bet on each line that you activate, going from $0.01 up to $0.40 only. With 20 lines being in the game, you can take your wagers up to $8, which is a very small amount for a modern game. High rollers might want to stay away from this one.

The rewards are good enough for a slot, offering 5,000 times the line bet at most. The value of that prize would be $2,000 at best.

Design and symbols

The design in Capital Cashpot seems to be dedicated to the capital of United Kingdom, to London. There are many of the things you would see there used as symbols, including black cabs, the Queen’s guards, Prince Charles, the Big Ben, and so on. There are some standard looking poker cards as well, but unfortunately that can’t be helped. The reels are placed on the side of a big red bus, with the background picture showing you London at night, with Big Ben visible.

Symbols: Guard (wild), Red Telephone Box (scatter, 200x bet), Big Ben (5,000 coins), Black Cab (2,500 coins), Underground Sign (1,000 coins), London Bridge (1,000 coins), Policeman Cap (500 coins), Prince John (500 coins), Queen (250 coins), King (250 coins), 2 (200 coins) and 1 (200 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The game is not going to break your budget, even if you max out the wagers, and its rewards and features will be good enough for what it asks of you. I’m not a huge fan of the design, but the theme and its London connection I loved.

This Capital Cashpot slot is offered by all online casinos with IGT software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
