If you’re crazy about winning cash with little or no fuss, this might just be the slot for you. This straightforward, three-reel slot by MicroGaming has just a single win line, so land three in a row and a nice pay out awaits. The game has a real traditional feel to it, as you’ll find sevens, bars and cherries on the reels. The design has that same vintage feel.
The highlight symbol is not traditional at all however. This shows a mad professor who seems to have built the contraption that powers the reels. Not only is he very generous with his pay outs, but he acts as the wild symbol too. He’ll throw in multipliers as the wild too.
Cash Crazy is a simple three-reel slot with just a single win line. During some spins, you’ll land a blank on one or more reels. This happens when symbols land above and below the win line, without landing on it. These spins will usually not lead to a win, as most wins need three in a row. While this can be frustrating, the fact that wins are harder to come by means that when they do come they’ll be bigger.
Before your first spin you’ll have to set the coin value and the number of coins. The coin value ranges from $0.50 through to $100, while you can play for 1 or 2 coins.
Landing three green sevens in a row gives you the highest pay out with the standard symbols, worth 200 coins (all pay outs listed here assume you are playing for 2 coins). Next on the pay table are the treble bars, these in a bright yellow colour. Land three of these in a row and you’ll win 100. The purple double bars are next, worth 50 coins, while the red single bars pay 20 coins. Like many other similar slots, you’ll also receive a pay-out for landing a combination of the three bar symbols. This is worth 6 coins.
The only other standard symbol in the game is the faithful cherry. Three cherries in a row are worth 40 coins. As an added bonus, landing two cherries on the win line in any position is worth 10 coins. You’ll also receive 4 coins for landing a single cherry.
The crazy professor is easily the most important symbol in the game. This prof is clearly money mad, as he looks out from the reels behind glasses with cash symbols on them. He also holds wads of cash in each hand too. This symbol acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for every other symbol in the game. Land a win with a single wild on the win line and the win amount will be doubled. If you manage to land a win using two wild symbols, the pay-out is multiplied by four. For example, if you land a single green seven alongside two professor wilds, the win amount will be an impressive 800 coins.
Most impressive of all however is the pay-out for landing three wilds in a row. This will see your bank balance bulge by 1,600 coins.
The reel set looks exactly as you would expect to see at any traditional slot, with the curved white coloured reels. The majority of the symbols are traditional, with the sevens, bars and cherries appealing to those who like the classical feel. Below the reels you’ll find a metal contraption seemingly supplying power. In the background, a dark silhouette of the mad professor jumps for joy as the reels create their magic.
Being a simple three-reel slot, all the information you’ll need is right there on the screen. To the right of the reels is the pay table, while below the reels you’ll find the controls. The sound is simple throughout, just the clicking and whirring of the reels.
Cash Crazy is a very enjoyable three-reel slot from MicroGaming. While the game might not have wide ranging features and bonus games, many will like the simple appeal of the slot. Hit three in a row and you’re guaranteed a win, while there are some small bonus payments too for just 1 or 2 cherry symbols. Some of the pay outs are large too, especially when the crazy professor wild symbol is involved. Land the wild professor character three times in a row and you’ll be going crazy yourself.
