Playtech’s Cascading Cave Slot Review

Cascading Cave is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Playtech that is available to play from 10p to £500 a spin on all devices. With a digging/mining theme,

Set inside a cave, this colourful slot sees blue, green and red gemstones on the reels – you’ll also see axes, lanterns, donkeys and the digger character. He’s the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 2.5, 10 or 100 times your stake.

The diamond is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols (bar the scatter) to give you the best possible outcome – 3, 4 or 5 will give you the same rewards as the highest value symbol. Every winning combination triggers the Collapsing Reels feature – all winning symbols disappear with new symbols occupying the vacated spaces. This means you can win again and again from every spin.

The scatter symbol is the TNT symbol – when 2 or 3 of them land anywhere on the reels, the Diamond Drop feature comes into play. 2 scatters will trigger up to 2 reels with 3 triggering up to 3 reels. Each triggered reel will see their symbols disappear with up to 3 wilds dropping onto the triggered reels.

Numbers will appear on every diamond above the reels – this indicates how many multiplier wilds can collapse on that reel. If you get a win on a triggered reel with diamonds stacked above it, the reels collapse and up to 3 more multiplier wilds collapse. The multiplier wilds can be 2x, 3x or even 5x. If a win is not formed, the feature simply ends.

Cascading Cave is a lot simpler than it sounds – it’s all about getting continuous wins from the Collapsing Reels feature basically. If you were to fill the reels with the high value character and/or diamond wilds, you’d pocket 2,000 times your stake – add in the potential 5x multiplier wild and you could win 10,000 times your stake on each spin.

I really like Cascading Cave – it’s fun, well designed and has the potential for big wins throughout. The key to winning big is from the multiplier wilds really. If you like the theme, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Dwarf Mine and Play ‘N Go’s Wild Falls would be my picks.
