Taking inspiration from the classic TV gameshow Wheel of Fortune, Cash Spin is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Bally Technologies. It comes with stacked wilds, free spins and cash bonuses. Play from between 40p and £320 per spin.

Visually, Cash Spin is a pretty simple affair – the reels include a selection of brightly coloured gemstones, a dollar sign and customised playing card symbols from ace through to 9. There is also a wild symbol which can appear stacked on reels 2 and 4. The graphics are pretty basic but everything is really bold, bright and easily visible.

The backing track is quite catchy and not too intrusive either, apart from the voiceover in the bonus features which sounds like it could come straight from some obscure cable TV station.

There are 2 symbols two keep a special eye on. First there’s the U-Spin symbol. When it hits anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 you’ll trigger the U-Spin Wheel Bonus feature. Here you’ll be presented with a wheel familiar to TV viewers the world over – give it a spin. You’ll be awarded either a cash prize or if the wheel lands in the free games segment, you’ll receive 12 free spins.

That’s not all though as any wins in the free spins feature will be doubled. It’s possible to trigger the U-Spin Wheel Bonus during the free spins too, offering more chances to secure a cash prize or even more free spins, up to a maximum of 60.

Also look out for the Money Bay symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 which activates the Money Bag Bonus feature – it’s a classic pick me round. Choose 1 of the 3 money bags shown and you’ll win a cash prize ranging from 3x and 50x stake. You can trigger the Money Bag Bonus in both the base game and the U-Spin Wheel Bonus feature which helps.

The imagery and features in Cash Spin are pretty simple but it’s a surprisingly entertaining game. The variance is on the low side so don’t expect to earn megabucks. The U-Spin features comes around fairly regularly though offering some decent cash bonuses. If you manage to hit the free spins with 2x multiplier, the coins can soon start to build.

As gameshow inspired slots go, Cash Spin is a decent. However, I much prefer Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin or The 100,000 Pyramid which are both powered by IGT.
