With a retro turn of the century style, NetEnt has flipped the rules around with this CashOMatic mobile slot, giving you reverse avalanche wins but still huge multipliers.
What is a reverse avalanche? Basically, this 1024 ways to win CashOMatic slot game keeps the winning symbols and makes the losing symbols explode – which is the more common avalanching reels mechanic.
It makes things a little more exciting because you have a second chance at catching more winning symbols. It’s a little bit like sticky wins, except all the symbols drop down to the bottom of the reels.
Not completely unique, you can find similar mechanics in the Neon Life video slot by Playtech, but it’s rare enough that it’s good fun to catch when you can. The fact that CashOMatic slot has 5 reels and 4 rows full of gems and Ace to 10 symbols gives this a familiar pretty theme.
Big multipliers are usually a good sign on a slot machine, but here it’s a little bit of a double edge sword.
Because those reverse avalanching reels give you lots of little wins, so you get money for value but the paytable wins aren’t that high. What you need to do is get a full row of symbols in one line to increase the multiplier from 1x all the way to 10x on level 4. It’s how you get anything close to 50 times your bet in the base game.
In the CashOmatic slot free spin bonus that multiplier can increase massively. If you get 20 or more free spins, the multiplier can go up to 50x multiplier, which is how you come close to the top 2,000 times your bet max win of the game.
The problem is that getting to that point is like winning a jackpot – it happens. Once or twice a year. To other people.
As long as you don’t expect to get those big multipliers, there’s is something fun about playing on this CashOMatic slot game. It has a good RTP of 96.33% and a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin for 1024 ways to win machine.
The free spins are pretty hard to catch as you need to collect 10 scatters during those avalanches to just trigger 10 free spins with double the multipliers you can get in the base game. Which is still pretty awesome, but we are talking winning 100 to 200 your bet max win.
If you manage to get that much, maybe move on, try something like the Gonzo’s Quest slot, which may have more traditional avalanches and smaller multipliers, but a better paytable.

Reverse Avalanche: When you get a win, the winning symbols will stay on screen and the rest will explode. More symbols then tumble down from above, giving you a second chance to catch more winning symbols.
Multipliers in the Base Game: Every row of the same symbol on screen will trigger a multiplier.
Free Spins and Multipliers: Every scatter symbol that lands on the reels will be collected on the meter to the left. Collect 10 to trigger the free spins, but you trigger the same number of bonus spins as scatters collected.
During the Free Spins, 1 extra spin will be awarded for each row filled with winning symbols, but the multiplier will also go up. How big a multiplier you get depends on how many scatters triggered the bonus games.
So the more scatters you catch, the bigger the wins.
We really like reverse avalanching reels, which makes this CashOMatic slot on mobile fun enough to take a couple of spins.
The multipliers are a nice touch, but the top win isn't quite high enough when you consider that you need to catch 20 scatters and get a 50x multipliers to get anywhere near those numbers.
Much like so many NetEnt slots out there, it promises a lot but doesn't quite deliver. But also like many others of it's kind, it a good-looking game that is different enough that you may be tempted to play for a couple of weeks.
CashOMatic is a 5x4 slot with 1024 ways to win with reverse avalanching wins, scatters, free spins and multipliers up to x50 in the bonus games.
