Cash Cave Slot
Cash Cave is an Ainsworth online slot game in which the main objective is to enter the free spins game where you get nice multipliers. The name of the game comes from the two-level free spins game, where the second level with crazy prizes is named the Cash Cave and it can get triggered when you land three Scatters during the normal free spins game.
The game has 100 paylines and you can choose a number of paylines you want to bet on between 1 and 100. The minimum bet per spin is €0.01 for one payline, or a minimum of €1 to cover all paylines. That is not common with Ainsworth, which makes it a good choice for online penny slots players. The maximum bet per spin is incredible and totally unnecessary €10,000 per spin.
Free Cash Cave Slot
If you land three or more Cash Cave Scatter symbols, you’ll trigger the free spins game and will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins game, the Feature Paytable applies, which is a bit different to the normal one which is used in the base game. Different in a bad way – it pays less.
Free spins can be retriggered, and you’ll get only 5 extra free spins for three Scatters. It’s because in this way you’re entering the Cash Cave Feature, the second level of the free spins game, where the Cash Cave Paytable is applied. Again, it pays even less. Definitely not one of the best free spins slots features.
During all free spins, the Bear Multiplier feature applies, and it progressively increases the multiplier of certain symbols up to 8x in the 10th spin. If you enter the second level of the free spins game, all symbols will have the 8x multiplier.
Graphics and theme
Could be a bit better, as all the symbols and characters are a bit too colorful, especially as the Bear and the Cash Cave Scatter are the only two symbols that matter. These two are easily noticeable on the reels though. Overall, Ainsworth did many better themes than this one.
Other than the Bear Wild and the Cash Cave Scatter, there are eleven more symbols – six card symbols are the low-paying symbols, and five more symbols representing various wealth pay just a bit more. The entire paytable is very skinny, and with a 100-payline setup and 11 symbols, it’s possible to get two full reels of Wilds yet not win anything.
Payout and value
Cash Cave slot has a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 94.04%, which is a bit low even for Ainsworth’s standards, and really low when compared to what some of the best slots online have to offer. If you enter the free spins game early enough in your playing session you’ll walk away as a winner, and if you don’t, you won’t win anyway. This is one of those slots that drain your bankroll with each spin while you’re waiting for the rich and rewarding bonus feature – which is rare and worth waiting for. So, players who are looking for this type of game and who are prepared to keep paying while waiting for the big reward will enjoy Cash Cave.
