Extra Cash Online Video Slot Game
Extra Cash is a Video Slots game by NextGen Gaming, with 5 reels and 50 paylines. It has a coin value range of 0.01 to 2 and 1 coin can be wagered per line, so the betting range is 0.01 to 100. The top Jackpot in the regular game is 500 coins, and the game can also be spun for no deposit in a free play mode. This gives new players the chance to practice and build up some confidence before they put real money down. When they do feel ready to do this, it’s also possible to set the reels to spin automatically in the AutoPlay mode to generate as many winning opportunities as possible.
Game Atmosphere and Design
Extra Cash is set in the 1930s or 1940s, during the heyday of newspapers, hard copy stories and young delivery boys earning extra pocket money with daily paper deliveries. The Extra in the name harks back to the cry that newspaper sellers used to encourage readers to buy them. The background to the reels is a suburban street, and a paperboy stands to the left. The higher-value regular symbols include a stack of papers, a kiosk, a little red cart to transport more copies, a dog and a newspaper van. Playing card symbols make up the lower-value regular icons. Fast-tempo music helps to keep things exciting, and different animations punctuate paying combinations.
Special Symbols and Features
The Extra Wild Symbol can appear on Reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game and on any reel during the Bonus Game. The symbol is the word Wild printed on a newspaper, and appears on the reels by being taken from the delivery boy’s bag and flung in the same way that newspapers would be tossed onto doorsteps in the early mornings. This can stand in for any regular reel symbol to create paying combinations, except the Scatter Symbol icon of a newspaper coming to life on a printing press.
The Scatters work in 2 parts to trigger the Bonus Game. Firstly, when 2, 3 or 4 appear anywhere on the reels in the Extra Cash base game, they are held in place while the other reels turn again. At the end of this Re-Spin round, the Free Spins Bonus is triggered as long as 3 Scatter Symbols are visible on the reels at this point. Players are awarded 8, 12 and 20 Free Spins for landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters respectively. The Bonus Round cannot be retriggered, but any Wilds that appear during the Free Spins will remain in place for the duration of the extra game to give players more opportunity to win.
Extra Gamble Feature
For a final flourish players are allowed to choose to activate the Extra Cash Gamble Feature after every payout. This offers the opportunity to double winnings by correctly guessing the colour of a playing card or quadruple winnings by guessing the card’s suit. If the predictions are wrong, players forfeit everything so the gambling element is strong and adds a last thrill to the round.
