Cash Challenge is one poker machine that is sure to catch the eye whenever players come across it in their local casino, and with the game becoming an increasingly popular part of the Ainsworth range across Australia, those chances have increased dramatically. Like so many of the most popular pokies of all time, such as Aristocrat’s Mr Cashman, this game is all about the money. The theme is cash, the logo is made of solid virtual gold and there are winning opportunities galore on the game, so you’ll never be short of some great prizes. The poker machine is also part of the Premier Plus range, representing the latest and greatest Ainsworth games, so you can be sure of quality throughout, from the betting controls to the visuals and, more importantly, the features. Read on to see exactly what the game is all about!
The Pokie Style
Cold hard cash may not be the most imaginative theme in the world, but the quality of the style is all about how well it is implemented. It is safe to say that the implementation here is of the highest quality, with bold, colourful symbols and fluent animations ensuring that the action never stops. The standard playing card icons are backed up by various signs of wealth, including diamond rings, gold watches and much more. Basically, win or lose, you’ll always feel like you’re in the lap of luxury on Cash Challenge.
The main game board is easy to get on with to put things simply, and falls into line with many of Ainsworth’s other recent releases. Both 1c and 2c denominations are on offer within the game, and you’ll be able to take your pick of fifty or a hundred win lines.
Features and Bonuses
There’s absolutely no shortage of feature action on Cash Challenge and that’s putting it mildly. The first of the features that you’re likely to encounter involves spinning in the “spin” symbol on the reels, at which point players are whisked off to a scratch card style game, with twelve different spin symbols to pick from. Each spin symbol makes for one pick, although the area of the screen is chosen for you. They can reveal bonus points, multipliers or free games, with each entry onto the second screen continuing where the last one left off. The bonus points themselves are key to the action, as you’ll see a prize ladder down the left hand side of the screen, indicating how much cash and credits can be won depending on the number of bonus points you manage to accumulate.
Wild cards are also slightly different to on many pokies, as they are delivered within golden cases. These cases open when they form part of a winning combination and are guaranteed to contain at least a standard wild. If your luck is in, then that wild will also carry a multiplier, which is then applied to every win that the particular wild cards forms part of.
Throw in free spins, with eight available and plenty more ways to win, and you’re certain to be onto a winner. That’s not all either – almost every recent Ainsworth release incorporates a progressive jackpot and there are two tiers to win here. Both the minor and major jackpots are well worth winning and they can hit at any time to provide the kind of timely bankroll boost that any player rightly looks forward to!
