Cash Drop

Published: 30/01/2013

The slot game known as “Cash Drop” is related to the “Reactors” series of online casino games developed by OpenBet Technologies. It has much in common with “Chain Reactors,” such as exploding and replaceable icons. Its symbols are based upon those of traditional fruit machines.

What is unique about Cash Drop is the format used for its reel matrix. There are five “reels,” but they are unequal. The first, third and fifth reels contain four hexagonal positions in a vertical column, but the second and fourth reels have only three such position. For that reason, there are no “rows” of symbols. Instead, the paylines form various patterns across the matrix—20 of them in all.

The basic icons appearing on the reels are Cherries, Lemons, Grapes, Watermelons, Bells and Bars. Payout values range from line multipliers of 16X to 700X for catching three or more matching symbols on an active payline. Higher awards are given for matching coloured Sevens. The Blue Seven is worth 50X, 90X or 800X for 3, 4 or 5 in a row, while the Red Seven fetches 60X, 100X or 1000X for similar combinations.

The Yellow Seven is a special symbol in this game. Available in “Real Play” mode only, it is the “Jackpot Scatter” symbol for Cash Drop. Catching three Yellow Sevens in any of the reel positions pays the Mini Jackpot, four such icons pays the Midi Jackpot and five of them win the Maxi Jackpot. Note that Jackpot payouts are not affected by multipliers.

For even more rewards, hexagonal reel positions are colour-coded—Red, Blue and Yellow. Whenever five positions of the same colour appear on an active win line, a “Reaction” occurs. A 2X stake line payment is made for each win line involved in the reaction. The reel positions will then explode leaving gaps to be filled by new symbols.

Each Reaction also adds a multiplier of 1X for each subsequent winning payline award. There is no limit on the number of Reactions or multipliers possible, so a single “spin” could conceivably result in an infinite number of wins. What’s more, winning combinations that are not part of the Reaction will remain and repay for each subsequent Reaction wit the increased multiplier.

The control panel for Cash Drop is located across the bottom of the screen. A window that shows “Winnings” is positioned on the right, and immediately below it is a button to access the “Paytable” information. The “Stake/Line” indicator with its +/- toggles for choosing the amount to wager per payline is on the far left. Available denominations range from €0.01 up to €25. All 20 paylines must be played at all times, making the maximum total bet possible €500. An indicator for “Total Stake” can be seen below the middle reel.

To begin the game, the player sets the wager and then clicks on the bright green “Play” button in the middle of the control panel. Drum rolls accompany the movement of the hexagonal reel positions, which rotate in place randomly rather than spin. The positions all come to a halt with the clash of cymbals. Those symbols involved in winning combinations light up, while the others go dark.

A list of each winning line and its payout will scroll in the Winnings window, and the total amount won will show in the “Paid” indicator next to the Play button. If a Reaction occurs, that will also display in the Winnings window, along with the multiplier value of the replaced reel positions.

For those who enjoy using Autoplay, a selector can be found on the control panel to the left of the Paytable button. The +/- toggles can be used to select from 1 to 25 automated spins. Autoplay can be halted by clicking on the green “Stop” button in the middle of the control panel at any time.
