Not to be confused with NetEnt’s Neon Staxx or Butterfly Staxx slots; Barcrest’s Cash Stax slot is a far simpler game than either of those two titles. This is basically your noughts and crosses themed slot machine game, and one which features so-so graphics, and a minimalist gaming structure. Cash Stax is played over 5 reels and 10 lines, none of which can be altered by the player. Players can opt to wager anything from 20p per spin, up to £500 a spin on this slot, though. With a RTP rate of between 94% and 98% (depending on where you play it) Cash Stax is a decent paying slot, but one which has a non-progressive jackpot worth just 50x your total bet.
Cash Stax contains a jester as its wild icon, and this symbol does appear stacked on the reels. It can substitute for all other symbols in the slot machine game, barring the golden ring scatters.
Those scatters can trigger a free spins bonus when one appears on each reel of the slot. This will not be easy. The numbers on the rows the symbols appear on will be added together to give you your total number of free spins.
Players have the option to play with extended bets in this slot if they wish. This will offer players 30 paylines instead of the default 10, but you can only get 5 spins with this feature before you should wager again.
In the bonus round, each scatter you locate offers you another spin, and the more you land the higher the multiplier you can pocket. In total, multipliers can worth as much as 5x the normal rate of pay in the free spins bonus round.
There are some nice elements to the Cash Stax slot. Wins are easy enough to come by, even if they are a little on the petite side. At the end of the day, players are either going to love or hate Cash Stax; there isn’t really a middle ground with this slot.
