Phantom Cash Slots

Ghosts and Victorian era ghost-catchers complete with bowler hats and strange zapping weapons combine in this creative video slot from MicroGaming. Taking a ghostly theme, they have managed to make it a little bit ‘Steampunk’, while maintaining a high quality feel. The main attraction is a free spins game called the ‘Ghost Zap Feature’ where the ghost catchers come into their own. There are plenty of ways to land yourself wins from regular play too.

The graphics are a cut above the majority of the MicroGaming slots range. The setting is a haunted house, with mysterious mechanical hardware above the reels. Each of the ghosts (which make up the majority of the symbols) is a different colour – and all are unique characters. Examples include the phantom sailor, complete with old style hat, which salutes when involved in a win. There are two Ghost catchers called Thurmingham and Curstairs, these appear in reels 1 and 5 and will double any wins which they are a part of. The soundtrack works well, with choral music adding to the overall ghostly feel.

While the animations in the regular game are good – these become excellent when the bonus game starts. The ghost catching device which appears from the top of the reels is worth playing the game for just to see. Thurmingham and Curstairs also become more animated, zapping ghosts which appear in the same row that they do.

  • How to play & real money versions

    Like most MicroGaming slots, the number of win-lines is fixed in place for this game – in this case at 25. You can change your bet size, with a range of 25c to $5 per spin. Auto play can be used in pre-set numbers or you can customize this to your own requirements.

    The regular wins are headed up by the phantoms, with the reddish coloured sailor having the biggest prize at 40x your total bet for 5, 20x for 4 and 2x for 3. The yellowish woman in the bonnet comes next, clocking in at 32x your bet for 5 – all of the symbols pay down to 3 of a kind on a win line. The green and blue phantoms are next on the payments list. 6 playing card symbols are used; these are standard designs – which is a little bit of a shame in such a well-produced slot.

    Special symbols include the haunted house scatters. These have the biggest single payment – with 100x your bet for 5 anywhere on the reels, 25x for 4 and 2x for just 3. If you hit 3+ you will trigger the Ghost Zap bonus game in addition to your payment.

    There are two ghost-catchers (Thurmingham and Curstairs) which appear on reels 1 and 5 respectively. These are wild symbols, and will substitute for all of the regular symbols – though not the haunted house scatters. When they are involved in a win, payment is doubled.

    Bonus Games on Phantom Cash Slots

    There is just the one bonus game on this slot – the Ghost Zap free spins round. This starts with an excellent graphic sequence. The top of the reels changes, with some elaborate steampunk type machinery coming down from above and fitting into place with a clunk. This also contains a count for your wins and the remaining spins in the feature game; you’ll start with 8 of these.

    Each spin with one of the catchers on reels 1 or 5 gives you the chance of zapping a ghost. The catcher comes to life, and gets a special gun out to zap any ghost on his row. You’ll win 2x your bet amount for each ghost zapped, or 4x if both catchers are on the same row. In addition, regular wins (doubled if involving a catcher) are also accumulated. This bonus is definitely worth seeing, and in my opinion is entertaining enough that you’ll want to try it a few times at least!

    I’m already a big fan of this slot, and will certainly be returning to play it again. The graphics are excellent, with a combination of visuals and audio giving a highly polished and professional feel. There is nothing too special in the regular game, with wilds (doubling wins) and scatters the only things keeping you entertained. The feature is where all the action is, and once you start to zap those ghosts I am sure you’ll want to come back and try it over again. All in all an excellent game and one that I recommend you check out for yourself soon!
