As online casino slot operators strive to create games that are even more modern and state-of-the-art than their competitors, it is good to know that some groups haven’t forgotten the roots of their success.
NetEnt, the Swedish online casino software provider, which powers many South African-friendly gaming sites, has payed homage to the original slot machine, Liberty Bell, with the release of its brand new slot – Cash-O-Matic.
We can just imagine how avant-garde the Liberty Bell slot must have been when it was first created by a San Franciscan car mechanic, Charles Fey, in 1895. This game set the standard for the modern slot machine and is considered one of the most exciting inventions in the gaming world. The Liberty Bell allowed players to pull a lever on the side of the machines to get the reels spinning before they landed on a random combination of symbols. The top payout of 50 cents (10 nickels) was awarded for landing 3 Liberty Bell symbols.
NetEnt’s new Cash-O-Matic slot is a 5-reel, 4 row video slot game in a 1024-bet way mode.
The game looks and feels like an old-style cash machine but its retro looks belies its amazing features.
• NetEnt’s proprietary Avalanche feature works in reverse in this game, where all winning symbols remain on the reels and the others disappear!
• The chance to win up to 18 free spins. Players are awarded the number of free spins in relation to the number of scatter symbols they collect, with a minimum of 10.
• The Level Multiplier is awarded in the main game should at least one row be filled with winning symbols. The more rows that are filled, the higher the Multiplier value won.
• During the free spins, the Multiplier value depends on the number of scatters that activated the free spins. The value can reach as much as 50 times!
The Director of Games at NetEnt, Bryan Upton spoke about the release of Cash-O-Matic slot.
“We’re pleased to present Cash-O-Matic, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell,” he said. “High volatility reverse Avalanche action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.”
