More Cash is a 15 payline slot with a line bet that can be set between 0.01 and 0.5. This means that each spin will cost no more than 7.50. There are controls for deactivating the gamble feature and for enabling autospin, which can be set between 10 and 500 spins. Visually, there’s not much to behold; a red tinted background displaying an urban business district (Wall Street perhaps?) and reels that are framed in gold. A gaudy logo features flashing stars and dollar signs.
To the top right of the reels is a cheque – remember them? – marked Wild Win. We’ll get to wilds in a moment, but first a few words about the base game. The unexceptional playing card symbols are complemented by five themed symbols that are all about the swag: a piggy bank, bulging bag of dollar bills, selection of credit cards, pile of dollar bills and a wad of gold ingots. Most of these symbols aren’t worth much save for the ingots, which are worth 2,500 for five.

Scatter and wild are your two main routes to success in this slot, just as they are in most slots. They’re the special symbols whose arrival on the payline – or simply in view in the case of scatter – will make your day. In More Cash, wild is played by a gold coin that will substitute for all symbols except for scatter. Any wins that wild generates will be accompanied by a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x, depending on whether the wild appeared on reels 2, 3 or 4. Land more than one wild and they’ll be multiplied by one another, resulting in big wins.
Scatter is a pair of scales with gemstones piled in the pans. Land two adjacent scatters on reels 2-4 and you’ll be awarded 10 free spins, or 20 if you manage to land three scatters on these reels. When it comes to collect, a wild symbol will be randomly placed on the reels; if it appears on the first payline, it will expand to fill the entire reel. The other way to win in More Cash is via the gamble feature which can be be activated after each win in the base game. Bet on the colour of the next card to double your winnings. Get it right and you can gamble again up to a maximum of five times.

More Cash isn’t GameArt’s greatest effort, put it that way. A tired theme and jaded playing symbols make sure of that. To play, it performs every bit as well as the developer’s other slots, but there’s none of the finesse or aesthetics you’d expect to find in their games. Still, if you can handle the lack of visual riches, you should find plenty of tangible riches coming your way once those free spins start pouring in.
