Whales of Cash Slot Machine

Whales of Cash is a simple and entertaining slot – and has now seen several upgrades since the original version was released. The latest game is called ‘Whales of Cash Deluxe, Legends’ which uses the same concept as Wicked Winnings and Buffalo.  If you have played this before then the whale, octopus and fish on the reels will all be very familiar. In fact, the only big change is that you get a choice of 10 or 20 free spins, with an extra row of symbols on the reels if you choose 10. Overall this is an upbeat and cheerful game, with some entertaining animations.

Overall, this is an enjoyable slot. It will appeal to players who enjoy the more solid games, without too many gimmicks or interruptions. The choice of how you want the free spins to play is a nice touch. While over time the payout percentage will be the same for each, they give you a choice of how volatile you want your session to be.

Whales of Cash – How to Win in the Base Game

Reel power has become something of a standard for Aristocrat slots recently, and is in use again here. The base game has a 3 rows and 5 reels setup, which gives 243 winning combinations from the left. You can choose to remove reels from the right-hand side, lowering the number of combinations. For me doing this takes away some of the entertainment value of the game. Since you can spin all the winning combinations for just 30c and up I recommend sticking with all 5 reels.

Whales are the top symbols, and also the wilds. These show a happy orca (killer whale), which flips when it helps to create a winning combination. You will get multipliers with these wilds on occasion, 2x in the base game and up to 8x in the free spins bonus game. Another Aristocrat standard is that the individual line wins are not huge on their own. To win a big prize you’ll need to trigger several line wins at the same time – preferably with one or more of the multipliers.

Other winning symbols include an octopus, which sits in a sunken treasure chest, a yellow starfish and an oyster holding a pearl. The smaller wins are made up by the regular Aristocrat playing card symbols.

Green circles containing coins and a money bag are the scatter and bonus symbols. Unusually, the whales will also substitute for these. If you hit 3 of them, you will start the regular free spins game with 10 free spins. If the first of the scatters is the ‘Deluxe’ symbol, you get to choose your free spins bonus type first.

Free Spins Bonus Game in Whales of Cash

You’ll see 2 visual representations showing you how the free spin bonuses work if you do hit the deluxe version. On the left-hand side of the screen you will be offered 20 free spins with the regular reel setup in a 3 row by 5 reels grid – giving you 243 ways to win. On the right there is an expanded reel set, with 4 rows of symbols and 5 reels – this gives you 1024 ways to win. There are 20 spins on the 243-ways option and 10 spins on the 1024 ways.

Once the spins start the whale symbols take on a new level of significance. While these could double your wins in the base game, they can have multipliers of up to 8x in the bonus round. What is more, if you get 2 or more whales with multipliers, these work together. For example, if you get a 4x and a 2x whale on different reels that create a win, that prize gets an 8x multiplier. This more than makes up for the smaller individual wins in the base game – sometimes creating some huge prizes.

You can retrigger the free spins by hitting 3+ of the money bags. Instead of simply adding more free spins, you get to go back to the choice screen after your current spins are completed and pick again.


Design and Setup

This slot has a simple, bright and colorful feel to it. The cabinet is dominated by the happy orca, and the background to the reels a predictable undersea scene. The animations are cartoon-like, with small effects from each of the main symbols. For example, the octopus waving its arms and taking a gold coin or the whale doing a flip. There is some cheerful music too, though this can be muted if you prefer! Many of the visual and sound effects are straight from the main Aristocrat slots library. These include the clicks when the reels stop, the coin fountain for big wins and the distinctive playing card symbols.

You can play this game from 30c and up in multiplies of 30c. The minimum and maximum bets will be decided by the individual casino.
