Extra Cash!! Slot review
Extra Cash is a NextGen Gaming slot machine which gets its inspiration from the newspaper industry, the hero here being a newspaper boy that lets people know that there is something important to read about. The slogan “Extra! Read all about it!” has been transformed into the name of the game, Extra Cash. This is a game with a lot of opportunities to win, 50 paylines being offered, while payouts reach a value of about $500 at best.
The time when newspaper boys roamed the streets of the city are behind us right now, but there was a time when they would be everywhere, on every street corner, trying to convince you that the day’s titles are important. You see the street in the background, with the newspaper boy sitting on a ragged wooden box. The reels are in the middle and are part newspaper themed, part based on basic poker cards.
While you have a lot of paylines at your disposal, 50 of them being active if you allow it, the individual line bets will only go up to $0.20, so the total bet is not very hard on the budget either. You can spend up to $10 each round in this game.
The features advertised in Extra Cash are mainly typical ones for such a game. You have free spins which get their start when the scatters are in sufficient numbers on the reels, and you have wilds which offer prizes as well.
The wild’s symbol has the Newspaper on it, with the title Extra Wild. It pays up to 500x if it forms combinations, or it substitutes for other symbols on the paylines where it appears with one or two symbols. Each spin can bring you additional wilds, added to the reels at the end of the round.
To trigger free spins, you need 3 to 5 scatters, and in exchange you receive 8 to 20 spins. One thing I’ve enjoyed seeing here is the sticky nature of the wilds which appear during this feature.
