Super Cash Drop: Slot Overview
Wealth is an interesting one. Few people would object to having more, but many choose to keep it under wraps by not flashing it around. Think of Mark Zuckerberg’s wardrobe of grey t-shirts and blue jeans, or IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad’s 1993 Volvo. Some like to hide in plain sight with their riches; others like to flaunt it. Those in the latter camp would do well to take a look at Super Cash Drop by independent developer Bang Bang Games. Powered by Yggdrasil Gaming, Super Cash Drop is one of those bare naked money-centric slots that unashamedly basis everything around riches and getting your hands on some.
These wealth themed games have appeared, pretty much, since the dawn of slots. Bang Bang has captured the look by making Super Cash Drop part money grab, part game show. The action occurs over a 5-reel slot, oozing stacks of banknotes, coins, and general symbols of accumulation. Flashing lights, neon pink, and gold trim make up the background, so if you adore the feel of an overstuffed wallet in your back pocket, it’s likely you’ll be drawn to Super Cash Drop, too.
Statistically, Super Cash Drop produces a set of respectable numbers, starting with an RTP of 96.6% and a hit rate of 32%. It’ll favour dedicated gamblers up for some challenging, highly volatile gameplay, with big potential on top. Available to play on any device, stakes from 20 p/c to £/€100 per spin may be set.
Super Cash Drop uses what they call a ‘Flexi-line’ system that pays when three or more symbols are adjacent to each other. It’s not exactly a pay all-ways system as adjacent symbols must be in the same row, or in one above, or one below. This provides 178 ways to win when the grid is in its default 5×4 size and up to 502 win ways when maxed out. Most symbols are money related, with the exception of the low pay card suits – diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades. For the mid to high pays, we get silver coins, piggy banks, cash bulging wallets, gold bars, and dollar signs. These symbols are worth 1 to 4 times the bet for wins of five of a kind. Green or gold wild symbols appear on any reel, substituting any pay symbol to complete a win. They are also worth 4x the bet for five of a kind and have a couple of win enhancing abilities covered next.
Super Cash Drop: Slot Features
Super Cash Drop blends random base game modifiers like Super Reel Expand, Super Stretch Wilds, and Locked Wild Respins, with triggered rounds of Super Free Spins. Randomly, at any moment, the grid may alter its size from the standard 5×4 level. You could get anything from 5×5, 5×6, 5×7, or 5×8, increasing win ways in the process to 259, 340, 421, or 502.
A lot rides on wild symbols in Super Cash Drop. One reason is that they are stacked on the reels. When one or more wilds land, all symbols on the reel are replaced by a wild as part of the Super Stretch Wild feature. In addition, the number of wilds which initially hit produces a multiplier of equal value. So 2 initial wilds, for example, would create a wild stacked reel bearing a x2 multiplier. If more than one reel of multipliers is used in a win, their values are added before being applied.
As well as green coloured Super Stretch Wilds, there are golden Locked Super Stretch Wilds. These act in the same way as previously mentioned, meaning they cover all positions on a reel while creating multipliers. However, as the name implies, Locked Super Stretch Wilds also lock to the grid for one respin while retaining their multiplier. If another Locked Wild lands, another respin triggers, repeating the process until no new locked wilds land or all five reels are filled.
To trigger Super Free Spins, you’ll need 3 bonus vault door symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5. Once in, 10 free spins are awarded where Super Stretch Wilds always lock for a respin. Also, low pay symbols are removed from the reels, plus there is a higher chance of landing wild symbols. The game will award a further 10 free spins if three bonus scatters land during the feature.
Super Cash Drop: Slot Verdict
Wealth themed slots are common, but Bang Bang has worked it by incorporating a set of useful features that create a satisfying level of thrills and dollars. Features regularly drop, triggering respins, locking wilds are quite common, as are their multipliers. Super Cash Drop is highly volatile, though, and it’s easy to be dazzled by the bright lights while not noticing your balance being punished in the process.
One of the issues is the length of time it takes to trigger the bonus game. Like the last Bang Bang game we reviewed, Ancient Eclipse, Super Free Spins are a mission to activate. In their defence, when they do go off they can be rather lucrative. With so many ‘Super’ endowed features on board, it’s good to know they can produce impressive wins. The game has a win capped, so it doesn’t go totally mental, at 20,000 times the bet. It would be interesting to know just how high Super Cash Drop could go because the cap was struck 44 times within the space of one billion simulated spins, which is relatively numerous in the grand scheme of things.
Since slots are so intimately tied to making money, these cash themed slots will never completely fade out of fashion. Bang Bang has made one of the more playable ones we’ve seen of late, which manages to be as gaudy as you like but might still appeal to players who prefer to keep their income a closely guarded secret. Gear up for a possible grind if you take Super Cash Drop on, as it can be tough to plunder, yet there are tangible rewards if you manage to crack its vault.
Snappy presentation and big potential means Super Cash Drop keeps the wealth themed slot genre firing.
