Cash Coaster is the name of this fairground-themed online slot game from International Game Technology. This slot contains 5 reels, 3 rows and up to 30 paylines in a fun, retro theme that is set in an old-style amusement park.
The main bonus feature offered by Cash Coaster is its free spins feature, in which players can pick a ticket booth to reveal between 4 and 6 free spins. Random stacked wilds also appear during the base game and the free spins feature on reels 1 and 5, and players can win up to 6 more free spins during the main feature.
Game Design and Graphics
Cash Coaster is brightly and festively designed to resemble a colourful theme park. There is a brightly lit red and yellow logo sign above the reels, and the game is set against a backdrop in which a number of roller coasters are visible in the distance. The game’s theme even extends to the pay table, which resembles a painted wooden sign board, and each element of the game is fringed with brightly flashing lights to enliven the atmosphere. The reel symbols of Cash Coaster are realistic and colourful, and depict traditional amusement park fare. Accompanying the game play is a fun fairground soundtrack.
On the Reels
On the reels of Cash Coaster are all the treats one might expect to find at a fun fair, including popcorn, rainbow fruit ice cones, pink candy floss, soft serve ice creams, toffee apples and giant pretzels.
Also included is a range of standard online slots Australia sevens, each in a different colour. There are red, blue, green, yellow and purple sevens on the reels, and these sevens can form a winning combination when mixed, provided that there are 5 of them in the combination.
The Cash Coaster wild symbol is the lit-up ‘Wild’ sign. This wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol in the game except for the ticket scatter symbol, helping to create winning combinations.
During the base game, the Roller Coaster Wild feature may also trigger randomly. When this happens, random stacked wild symbols will appear on the first and last reels of the game.
The scatter symbol in Cash Coaster is the ‘Free Spins’ orange ticket icon. Landing 3 or more of these ticket scatters on the reels will trigger the free spins bonus feature.
Roller Coaster Free Spins Feature
Once the Roller Coaster Free Spins feature has been triggered, players will be redirected to a screen containing 3 different ticket booths. Players must pick 1 of these 3 booths in order to be awarded 4, 5 or 6 free spins with which to play. During the free spins feature, the random stacked wild symbols may also appear to turn reels 1 and 5 completely wild.
Additional ticket symbols may also appear during the free spins. These tickets are a different colour to the orange scatter symbol tickets in the base game, and can award up to 6 additional free spins when 3 or more of them land on the reels during the feature.
