Extra Cash Slot Game
Powered by vivid graphics and animation, NextGen Gaming’s Extra Cash slot game delivers an entertaining gaming experience based around the theme of 1930s newspaper delivery boys.
It’s a five-reel, four-row game with up to 50 lines in play. Though it has no progressive jackpots, it does include a free spin bonus game, as well as the ability to gamble with one’s winnings.
It might take newer slot players some time to learn the game. The more frequent, demanding players out there should enjoy Extra Cash unless they become concerned about the low payout values.
How to Play
Extra Cash slots has an easily customizable betting setup. The payline bet is adjustable between $0.02 and $0.40. The amount of paylines in play can be set between 1 and 50.
The player can activate spins one at a time or trigger the Auto Spin function which starts up to 100 automatic plays that can be stopped at any time.
A winning payline occurs when matching symbols line up from left to right, starting with the first reel. Three consecutive matching symbols are needed for a win, with the exception of two truck, dog or Extra WILD symbols.
Symbols & Payouts
Playing card symbols have the lowest value, while thematic images have the highest. The symbols and payouts (per payline bet) are as follows:
- 10 or J: Three pays 5, Four pays 15, Five pays 100
- Q or K: Three pays 10, Four pays 20, Five pays 100
- A: Three pays 5, Four pays 25, Five pays 125
- Newspaper stack or paper wagon: Three pays 20, Four pays 50, Five pays 200
- Newspaper kiosk: Three pays 25, Four pays 50, Five pays 250
- Dog: Two pays 5, Three pays 25, Four pays 75, Five pays 300
- Truck: Two pays 5, Three pays 25, Four pays 75, Five pays 400
- Extra WILD: Two pays 10, Three pays 50, Four pays 100, Five pays 500
Extra WILD also acts as a substitute for any of the above symbols.
There is also a Scatter icon that triggers the free spin game, while also delivering its own payouts that are multiples of the total bet.
The Scatter symbol can appear on any of the five reels. If two, three, or four Scatters appear on a spin, the Re-Spin feature begins. All reels without Scatters are respun, allowing for a chance to pick up more Scatters and/or additional winning paylines.
Three Scatters wins 8 free spins for the player. Four Scatters gets 12 free spins. Five Scatters picks up 20 free spins.
The free spins function similarly to the regular spins with one exception. Any Extra WILD symbol that appears remains held in that spot for all remaining free spins. This can result in many wild symbols and even more winning paylines.
Extra Cash also has a gambling feature. The player can elect to gamble the winnings from any spin on a card-guessing game. They player can guess the color or suit of a facedown card. Guessing the color correctly doubles the payout. Picking the right suit quadruples one’s winnings. The game allows up to five consecutive winning guesses. With any incorrect guess, the player loses all of the winnings.
Extra Cash includes another feature based around the WILD symbol. One of the highlights of the game’s colorful graphics is the animated paperboy who stands to the left of the reels. He watches them spin, reacts to big wins, calls out “Extra Extra” and sometimes picks his nose. The paperboy also occasionally tosses Extra WILD symbols onto the reels during a spin. During the regular game, these WILDs will land on reels two, three or four. But in the free spin game, the WILDs can land on any reel. These symbols are also held during the free spins, contributing to even more payouts.
The thematic graphics and animation are one of Extra Cash’s highlights. Aside from the paperboy, there are flying coins and fluttering newspaper pages that give the illusion of three dimensions. The colorful city background and upbeat jazzy soundtrack contribute to the 1930s feel.
The bevy of special features gives Extra Cash plenty of replay value, with the free spins leading to the largest payouts. Having the ability to manage one’s bets through the adjustable betting system allows for both small and large bets, short and long gameplay.
The game can be a bit complex and the 50 paylines might be challenging to follow for inexperienced slot players, but at least the betting setup helps them manage their bets. Seasoned players may enjoy the frequent wins, but not the low payouts (often below the total bet value). Still, the bonus features and excellent design of Extra Cash should sustain this game’s appeal for many online slot fans.
