CashSplash 5-Reel Slots

CashSplash-5-ReelThough the design of the 5-Reel version of CashSplash has been much improved, the game shows its roots and is very similar to the 3-Reel title. You get the same colors and background, the same symbols for the most part, but you also get a lot of new ones (unfortunately, they are playing cards). The game manages to be a modern alternative to the 3 reels title, with more features and with the same progressive jackpot offered on top.

This being a 5 reel title, you get 15 lines from it, instead of the 1 available in the 3-Reel version. You also have one extra feature besides the wild, a scatter symbol, but both of them are very basic options. The progressive jackpot remains the main target in this game.

Features of CashSplash 5-Reel

The game has kept its wild symbol, added a scatter to the feature list, but it got rid of the multiplier. All in all, the features aren’t that much of an improvement over the 3 reel game.

The wild symbol’s representative remains the same CashSplash Logo image. It will give you the slot’s best payouts in this case, including the progressive jackpot, as long as you get up to five of them on the same line. The progressive jackpot requires five wilds on the 15th line, in order to be awarded.

The rest of the time, you will find the wild symbols appearing on the reels, in random locations and usually part of multiple paylines. Whenever they show up, there is a chance that they will be in the right spot and they will be able to help out with a new combination.

The other major feature symbol would be the scatter, which is present in random spots on the reels, and yet it can still award some impressive prizes. These go from 4x to 250x the value of the bet, depending on how many Scatter Logos are present.

Betting options and jackpots

The bets you place in CashSplash 5-Reel amount to the same total as the 3-Reel version, so you can wager up to $3 per spin. Since there are 15 lines, each one gets a $0.20 wager, the fixed value of a coin.

It’s a good idea to select all the lines and use the $3 bet, since only the 15th line you activate can give you the progressive jackpot. This prize is worth anywhere between $5,000 and more than $100,000, depending on the size at the time. The average payout was at about $27,000 in the past.

Design and symbols

The game has kept a lot of things that I enjoyed in the 3 reel CashSplash, like the blue background with stars on it, or the design of the wild symbol. It also kept some of the classic icons, but improved them to look more at home in a modern environment. Playing cards were added to fill up the rest of the positions in the game, but they’re well enough done that I’m not going to complain much about them.

Symbols: CashSplash Logo (progressive jackpot, wild), Cash Stack (800x), Seven (500x), Bar (400x), Cherries (300x), Ace (200x), King (120x), Queen (100x), Jack (75x) and 10 (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Both CashSplash games require the same $3 investment to get the progressive jackpot, so ultimately it’s up to you and your own preferences. Do you want a game with classic or modern influences?
