Rev up your engine and get motoring in Flash Cash, a driving themed slot from Aussie developer Ainsworth. This motor race is played using a 5 reel, 30 payline game engine and comes with stacked wilds and a bonus round that awards up to 15 free spins complete with 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers. Play from 30p to £3,000 per spin on all devices.
The cockpit of a racing car forms the backdrop to the reels here. Joining the lower value A to 9 symbols are a helmet, scorching tyre, speedometer, chequered flag and champagne. The best of the standard symbols is the sports car which awards 50, 100 or 500 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The $ is the game’s wild. It can land fully stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5 only – it doesn’t offer any payouts but it does replace everything apart from the scatter.
The gold trophy is that scatter – land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll win a prize equal to 2, 10 or 50 times your total bet. You’ll also trigger the game’s Free Games feature where 10 free spins are on offer here. The $ wild can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 during the feature – when it lands on reels 2 and 4, it will expand and turn the whole of the reel wild.
Look out too for the bonus reel – on this you’ll see only trophy symbols or 2x, 3x or 5x multipliers. Any winners are boosted by the multiplier on show in the bonus reel. Land 3 or more scatters and another 5 free spins will be added to your total.
A different paytable is used during the feature round where the standard payouts are lower. Landing 5 scatters will get you a bumper payout of 250 times your stake rather than the 75x from the base game.
Flash Cash is simple fare – in fact, it’s about as far away from the high-tech world of Formula 1 you could come across in a slot with this theme. The visuals are simple and the screech of tyres following every spin had us reaching for the mute button.
The free spins round isn’t a bad one though thanks to the stacked wilds and multipliers on offer. This race didn’t get our pulse racing. Petrol heads may want to take it for a spin. We won’t be giving it a lap of honour though. I do recommend you try NetEnt’s Drive: Multiplier Mayhem which has a similar theme.
