Cash-O-Matic is an adventure packed with Free Spins and Multipliers.

 

NetEnt’s Cash-O-Matic is a 1024-bet way, 5-reel, 4-row video slot designed with the look of an old-style cash machine and loaded with game mechanics.

The new, retro-looking title has flipped NetEnt’s proprietary AvalancheTM feature on its head. Now operating in reverse, AvalancheTM sees all winning symbols remain on the reels, while the rest disappear.

Cash-O-Matic is full of Free Spins and Multipliers. The number of Free Spins awarded equals the amount of Scatter symbols collected, with a minimum of 10 Free Spins there to be won. With Scatter lengths of up to 18, the number of Free Spins can get really high.”.

In the main game, the Level Multiplier is awarded if at least one row is filled with winning symbols. The more rows, the higher the Multiplier value. In Free Spins, the Multiplier depends on the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins and can go as high as x50.

“We’re pleased to present Cash-O-Matic, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell. High volatility reverse AvalancheTM action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

Yggdrasil assembles high-voltage slot Wild Robo Factory

Yggdrasil assembles high-voltage slot Wild Robo Factory

Yggdrasil invites players to try their luck in a world of mechanical mayhem in its new video slot, Wild Robo Factory.

This 4×5 game takes place in a dark factory, where 12 motorised servants are driven wild at the production line under the command of quirky robots.

Encountering a Wild Robot on the conveyor belt brings big rewards, as these robots can be stacked, carrying multipliers, or help players trigger free spins. A small spark can transform some of the players’ lower paying symbols into higher paying ones to guarantee a bigger win. With all these wild features, players are in for an electrifying experience and plenty of wins.

When three or more Free Spin symbols land in a single turn, players are sent down into the factory basement in the Free Spin Mode where they can play as long as they have robots moving on the conveyor belt. Sometimes the system overloads, forcing the robots to reverse back onto the game screen, where players benefit from them a second time.

Jonas Strandman, Senior Product Strategist at Yggdrasil, said: “Wild Robo Factory is a highly original addition to our portfolio, packed with unique features and game mechanics.

“The Free Spins have some serious win potential if you get big robots, system overloads or re-triggers.

“As with all Yggdrasil slot titles, Wild Robo Factory comes complete with our collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOST®, and we look forward to seeing how it is received by our partners.”
