Cashapillar is a slots with a premise; the 100th birthday of Mr. Cashapillar himself. Think birthday party meets A Bug’s Life, and you’ve probably got the picture. Microgaming released Cashapillar in 2008 with some buzz surrounding its colourful design. What is truly unique about it, though, is the 100 payline setup. You won’t find many games that work like this, and that makes for an interesting change from the norm.
How to Play
Cashapillar is a fun and fanciful slots machine that’s easy to learn, not your typical five reel machine.
- Click on paylines or the Lines button to choose. Then decide how many coins you want to wager and how much they should be worth. Click on the Coins button to increase one at a time, or hit the orange Max Bet to set the whole kit and caboodle. Place a max bet of 100 coins if you dare!
- Once bets are placed and lines are activated, you can press spin to start the action.
- Cashapillar has some friendly faces to encourage you along the way including the birthday cake, presents and guests like wasps, beetles, snails and ladybirds. The wild symbol boosts your wins by completing partial combinations, while the scatter symbol will just throw you one for a loop.
There’s no progressive jackpot here, but the big ticket winner for this game is the 6 million coin cash out if you hit it right with the scatter symbols. You’ve got to bet max to win this one, so don’t forget to hit the button.
During the Free Spins round, if you get the stacked wild symbols on each reel, you’ll earn 2 million coins, and since everything is tripled during this round, that makes 6 mill! (Note: 2 million prize can be won during regular play as well.) It’s not a frequent occurrence, but the sheer possibility is pretty mind blowing. That said, the volatility is fairly low, so you can win small prizes as you go along to keep up the excitement.
Cashapillar is available for both iOS and Android users, offering the same gaming experience and bonuses to online players.
Cashapillar isn’t just about the reels, though. There are some pretty exciting extra features as well.
- Scatter: The cake symbol is the scatter icon in this game, and it can appear anywhere on the screen. If two of them show up, you can win a combo, but three or more award you with the Free Spins Bonus round.
- Wild: The logo is wild in this game, which means it substitutes for any symbol (except the scatter) to create bigger, better wins. Points are also doubled with these symbols and wilds can be stacked on any of the five reels, too.
- Free Spin Bonus: Get 15 free spins when triggered, tripling your score the entire time. *Get a 6x multiplier if the wild symbol completes a combo during the bonus round*
- Gamble Feature: After a win, you will be able to enter the Gamble feature. Here, you have to guess whether the card (face-down) in front of you is red or black. If you get it right, you double your winnings. Then, you can continue to double your points until you guess wrong or the gamble limit is reached, or return to the main game.
Graphics and Sounds
Colours, lots of colours. That’s what Cashapillar delivers to your senses immediately upon loading. And since it’s a party, there’s going to be lots of music! The jazzy, upbeat tunes that are constantly playing keep you in the mood and toe-tapping all the while. The Alice in Wonderland scene adds yet another dimension. This game isn’t meant to razzle dazzle you with graphics, but it is certainly a whimsical atmosphere if that’s what you’re in the mood for.
Cashapillar is a light and friendly flavoured slots machine, offering Canadians a chance to relax from the heavy drama of day to day life and earn some cash while just having a good time. If you need a break from reality, this colourful, cartoonish world is a great escape.
