We recently covered the Player’s Choice series here at Mr Gamez, which is one of Aristocrat’s latest innovations and sees multiple games being packed into a single cabinet. The focus there is on the unique way in which you can enjoy top games from yesteryear in the modern day, without losing any aspect of the classic magic. Cash Express is slightly different, as the games that we’ll be covering today are not only classics in their own right, but also build on the unique Cash Express Hyperlink feature.
Cash Express Hyperlink Feature
Before we get into the cabinets themselves, we’ll take a look at the main feature that links all of the games together. Rather than ever being found on a standalone game, the feature is the key to winning some of the biggest and best jackpots around and can occur no matter which game you’re playing. The whistle can blow at any time and will whisk you off to a second screen with five completely different reels. The player must choose a reel to stop, which will then display a number and continue to do so on the other reels to form a combination. The higher the number, the higher the tier of jackpot is won. As the Hyperlink name suggests, different Cash Express cabinets are linked together so in many ways, building the prize fund and winning it is similar to playing online jackpot slots. The best part of all is that once you enter the round, you’re guaranteed to win one of the jackpot amounts, with your job simply being to make it as big as possible!
Now let’s take a look at the latest Cash Express cabinets that are taking the land based world by storm!
Cash Express First Class crams in two of our personal favourites in The Phantom and More Hearts. They were chosen based on the fact that they both incorporate free spins rounds with split reels, ensuring that they have something in common and will appeal to the same audience. Simply take your pick of the two slots and you’ll instantly be transported to the classic layout and theme, with even bigger betting options than you may be used to thanks to one, two and five cent options.
Cash Express Ticket to Ride
Aristocrat recently announced that their most popular slot ever in the Aussie state of Victoria was 5 Dragons so it will come as absolutely no surprise that the first of the new cabinets to hit the state includes that title alongside Where’s the Gold. The game is not just confined to Victoria and you’ll find it across Australia, the US and beyond, with both titles once again incorporating an enhanced selection of betting options while retaining all of the classic features.
Cash Express Golden Whistle
This cabinet brings two absolute classics back into the mainstream once again and this time players have a choice of Where’s the Gold and Geisha – both top class games and ones that we’ve frequently enjoyed over the years. You once again have a shot at the Hyperlink feature, but otherwise the games are exactly how you’ll remember them.
Cash Express Scenic Route
This cabinet includes 5 Dragons and More Chilli, which again are two absolute classics from the Aristocrat range and games that every player should try at least once. What sets Scenic Route apart from the other cabinets is that 5 Dragons is offered with a 600 credit maximum bet option for the first time ever, so if you want to unleash your inner high roller on one of your favourites then this is certainly the cabinet for you.
Cash Express Get on Board
This is perhaps our favourite of all of the new Cash Express cabinets, for the very simple reason that it includes our favourite Aristocrat slot of all time – Queen of the Nile. Combine that classic action with a progressive prize that can run well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and you’re on to a winner in our book! The game also packs in another classic in Indian Dreaming, making it an absolutely essential choice for any player! The only thing to look out for that differs from other Cash Express games is that there is no five cent option, so you may have to scale back your bets slightly. On the other hand, that makes winning the jackpot even cheaper, so we say go for it!
Cash Express City Limits
Last but by no means least is City Limits and as you’ll have worked out by now, it is pretty similar to the other cabinets! This time round, players have the choice of Spring Carnival – another of our favourites as we do like the occasional horse race – and King of the Nile. You’ll have noticed that this series is reserved for the absolute biggest and best games around so whether you’re a new player that wants to sample some slots history or a veteran that preferred simpler times, these games are the perfect choice.
Naturally, these cabinets don’t receive a feature of their own within our Aristocrat section as we’d be simply repeating ourselves. However, each individual game that you’ll find within the Cash Express machines has full coverage, including a review and the best alternatives so if you want to play from home, that is definitely the best place to start. The only thing missing from those articles are the jackpots from the Hyperlink feature but never fear, we’ll cover you there too! You can find the biggest and best progressive jackpots in online slots on our Jackpot Slots page and even give them a trial spin right here on the site before heading off to one of our featured casinos to play for real cash and, of course, real prizes!
