Mr. Cashback

Published: 07/01/2013

Anyone who has ever played a multiple payline slot has had to wonder if some of the lines never hit. It certainly does seem that way at times. But now there is a slot that turns those underperforming paylines into cash cows. Playtech’s 5-reel, 15-payline Mr. Cashback guarantees a return on every line, every 50 spins, or else it will pay out a reward equivalent to 50 times the line bet for each line that has failed to deliver. It has got to be one of the more novel ideas ever incorporated into a slot game.

A variety of coin denominations are available on Mr. Cashback, starting at €0.01 per line and running as high as €5.00. It is possible to wager up to 10 credits per line, which means the maximum wager per spin can amount to €750. Wager amounts are easily adjusted using the toggles below the first four reels.

During actual play, the cashback status of each line is saved when it is not active and restored when it is reactivated. The status is also saved when the player exits the game, so that it can be restored when play resumes. What`s more, the cashback status of each line is filled separately for every line bet. As soon as at least 50 spins have been made, the lines become eligible for the supplemental payout.

Players can know when a payline is about to “fail” for its 50th time because the third reel will begin spinning freely, as if approaching a bonus mode. As soon as all reels come to rest, Mr. Cashback appears and announces the number of the reel that failed to perform and awards the 50X multiplier in addition to any other line wins. The status of the failed line then resets to zero and the countdown to 50 begins again. It really is ingenious.

Of course, Mr. Cashback does not rely solely on poor performance to attract players. There are a number of other bonus features built into the game to ensure that pay days are both frequent and profitable. The reel symbols include the usual cards, Nines through Aces, plus Piggy Banks, Stacks of Cash and Bags of Coins. All winning combinations require at least three matches on an active payline and payout line multipliers from 5X up to 800X.

Mr. Cashback himself appears as a symbol on the reels and he is Wild, substituting for any symbol except the Logo Scatter. When 3, 4 or 5 Mr. Cashback symbols align, the line win pays 25X, 100X or 7500X, respectively. Watch Mr. Cashback’s reaction, too, as the cigar falls out of his mouth, his toupee flies up off his head and the money showers down to stack up around him.

Anytime three or more Logo Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, the Free Games bonus is initiated. The bonus begins with a payout of 5, 10 or 100 times the total wager for 3, 4 or 5 Logo Scatters, respectively. Then, the player receives 12 Free Games with a 2X multiplier.

As the free spins begin, gold coins may appear at random and attach themselves to positions on the reels. These are “Freezing Wilds,” and they remain in place for one to four spins, substituting for all symbols. Note, however, that Free Games can not be retriggered in the free spins mode.

Another bonus aspect of Mr. Cashback is its Gamble Feature. After any win, the player has the opportunity to gamble by guessing the colour of a card, red or black, in order to double up the winnings. Correct selections allow redoubling, too, up to a limit of €2,500. Otherwise, the “Collect” button can be clicked to keep the amount won and return to the slot game mode. A history of cards drawn in the past provides some assistance in the choices made.
