One type of poker machine that Aussie players are never likely to tire of is those that are all about the cash! From the earlier days of this generation, with Aristocrat’s Mr Cashman, all the way up to this reasonably recent release, in many ways there is no more appropriate theme. Money Heat takes things a step further than most comparable games as not only is it all about the money, but it also adopts something of a casino theme, which we’ll cover in more detail below. You don’t need to take our word for just how popular this game is either. Ainsworth online pokies are few and far between but this game is a member of that highly exclusive club, so you know that it’s enjoyed around the world. Of course, the licensing restrictions that apply to all Aristocrat and Ainsworth pokies at online casinos continue here, but that’s certainly no reason not to check out what the game has to offer in a full feature. Read on to be fully prepared the next time you run into a Money Heat cabinet at Australia’s land based casinos!
The Pokie Style
As noted, this game is all about the money, with a hint of casino action thrown in on top. It’s not the most advanced looking game around but it certainly boasts its fair share of visual flair. Even the mandatory playing card icons have been enhanced a little, with the ace incorporating a pair of dice. The themed symbols are all surrounded with a ring of fire, and they comprise the likes of gold bars, playing cards, dollar bills and more.
One thing that any cash themed poker machine needs is plenty of ways to win and you don’t need to wait around for the bonus feature to land to start hitting it big. Money Heat offers not only a wide range of coin bets, but also fifty win lines. That means that the wins come around thick and fast. It also ensures that you won’t encounter many dead spins at all.
Features and Bonuses
You don’t have to rely on bog standard symbol combinations in order to land these wins either. There’s a basic wild card, the dollar sign that will fill in the gaps, but what you’ll really be on the lookout for is the Money Heat gold coin. Three or more in view on a single spin will award ten free spins, and you can pick up five more each and every time you land the same combination within the round itself.
The wild becomes less basic during the bonus round. If it lands on the middle reel and forms part of a winning combination then that prize is automatically improved by a five times multiplier. There is also a chance of landing a bonus reels within the bonus game, which could spin in a further two, three or five times multiplier.
Money Heat is a fascinating game that definitely breaks the mould of basic poker machines. If you want the wins to be big while also coming thick and fast, then be sure to check it out next time you hit the land based casino!
