Everyone knows that the two major components that go into a slot are how it looks and how it plays. The Cash Inferno slot by Amaya focuses more on the latter than the former, so it's going to cater to players who care more about the substance of the experience than the aesthetics.
This game has a theme that centers around fire-fighting. That's not the most common theme out there, but you'll find that every aspect of this title comes together in a way that is particularly cohesive, and that's the sort of thing that we really like to see.
Format and Layout
An older video slot format is at play here with nine paylines that pay out across five reels and three rows. You can change the number of active lines, but recommend that you just keep them at nine. This is because dropping below nine will simultaneously lower your RTP percentage, which means that you'll have a lower payout rate relative to your bet size as a total.
Bet sizing starts with coins that go from $0.01 to $5 apiece. This lends itself to a minimum wager of $0.09, which is a highlight of this title since it allows for penny players to get in on the action comfortably. You can bet up to five coins on each line, and that will combine with the $5 coin sizes to allow for a maximum wager of $225. That's clearly enough to cater to high rollers and everyone in between.
Sparky the Wild Dalmatian
The dalmation named Sparky is the wild symbol in this game. These dogs were often used at fire departments for various tasks, and here they show up to help you to get some pretty impressive wins. You can earn 2,500x for five of a kind of this dog or 500x for four. A win worth 100x is yours for three of a kind, and you can even earn 20x for just two. This symbol will win for just one of a kind for a win with a 2x payout, but it has to land on the first reel to do so.
Alarm Symbols and Bonus Round
There's an alarm symbol that acts as a bonus symbol. Getting three or more acivates the bonus round where you'll have to put out fires. It's a pretty interactive feature that offers chances for some pretty big payouts based on multiples of the total amount that you've wagered.
You'll be presented with a large burning building, and you'll click the windows to be presented with either a payout or the purple "Finish" symbol. Once you find the "Finish" symbol, the feature will end, and all of your payouts will be combined and added to your balance all at once. The more windows you pick, the more value you get.
However, if you're lucky enough to pick the "Finish" symbol on your very first try, then all of the other windows will open, and you'll pick up every single one of the payouts available in the future for a massive win.
Other Payouts and Prizes
There's another dog symbol jumping to the left, and he pays out some pretty solid wins as well. You can earn 1,000x for five, 200x for four, 50x for three, 10x for two or even 2x for just getting one of a kind. For the second dog that's sitting and facing to the right, the wins are 500x for five, 100x for four, 25x for three, 5x for two and 2x for one. All wins go from left to right only, but it's rare to find games with multiple symbols that pay for just one of a kind on the left-hand reel.
Players can also earn 250x for five of the fire extinguisher, and five of the matches symbol will get you a 200x win. The fire hydrant symbols are worth 150x for five as the mid-level wins continue, and the fire hose on the blue splash of water gets 100x. The 50x win for five of a kind of the fire symbol is solid as well.
We'll be the first to admit that the graphics of Amaya's Cash Inferno slot aren't the best out there. However, you'll find that they are more than sufficient for the quality of gameplay involved. This title has a fun bonus feature based on the fire-fighting theme of the game, and it has multiple symbols that pay out for just one or two of a kind, which is virtually unheard of in the online slot space.
As a result, we think that this game should get credit for more than its dated visual appeal.
