Stir up a winning potion in the Cash Cauldron, a slot machine by Genesis Gaming which features a cast of magical sorcerer characters and some 243 ways to win. With 5 reels and a whole load of special bonus features, this video slot is sure to conjure up some spellbinding winning potential.
What's more, the game has total bets ranging up to 10,000 credits, meaning that punters can do some serious high rolling for extra exciting spins. Plus, the game is available to be enjoyed on both desktop computer screens as well as mobile handsets such as smartphones and tablets thanks to a specially designed user interface that is optimised for touchscreen commands. Magic!
As the name of the game might suggest, Cash Cauldron takes its theme after the genre of witchcraft and wizardry. So, this is a perfect option for players who are still waiting for their invitation to attend Hogwarts! With that in mind, it is no surprise that the features a series of mage-like characters such as a white-bearded wizard wielding a magical staff, a witch who is levitating an orb of light in her hands, and another hooded witch who is about to attack with a ball of flames from the palm of her hand. This is evidently not occult arts for beginners, or the faint of heart!
Visually, this slot machine presents a bit of a mixed bag. That is because the reels themselves are all nicely presented with some 3D animations and a touch of Celtic-style artwork to give the game a medieval fantasy adventure feel about it. However, the game screen as a whole does appear slightly unfinished and underwhelming as a consequence due to the fact that the background is shown as a simple (and dull) brown colour. As such, it's not quite as epic in visual terms when compared to other slot machines with a similar theme which display vast mountainous landscapes and amazing fairytale castles.
This slot machine may not be epic in aesthetic aspects, but it is sure to turn a few heads when it comes to the range of betting options and the consequent winning potential. The reason for this is because the game has 243 ways to win, meaning that a prize is paid to players whenever matching symbols fall onto adjacent reels from left to right.
Essentially, this means that there aren't any paylines and bet per line values to worry, just the following total bets: 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 10.00, 100.00, 1,000.00 and 10,000.00 credits. As you can see, those betting options rise fairly rapidly into some very high amounts, making this game perfect for high-rollers. You can see all of the total bet multiplier prizes in the table below along with their respective symbol combinations:
Stirring up a potion of winning spins can be tricky, especially if you don't have the right ingredients at your disposal. Luckily, Cash Cauldron offers a number of special features, two of which come in the form of a wild icon and a scatter symbol; the former is depicted by the game's logo and will appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 to fill in gaps for other symbol combinations expect for the scatter which will pay total bet prizes of 2x, 10x and 40x whenever three or more appear in any position.
The game also boasts some bonus rounds, all of which are triggered completely at random. First of all, there is a randomly activated multiplier bonus which adds multipliers worth 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x to the reels for that single spin. There is also a Wild Witch Spell bonus in which a 3D witch character appears, adding up to 3 wilds on random reels for huge winning potential. And last, but by no means least, there is a Cauldron Pick bonus in which three cauldron icons appear for players to choose, unleashing a instant prize worth up to 10x the total stake value.
With all of those winning opportunities on offer, it is no wonder that the designers at Genesis Gaming have added a 150,000 winnings cap to Cash Cauldron. Nonetheless, that still leaves a very sizeable amount of money to be won on this feature-rich game that is full of random bonus surprises. So, we are sure that spinners will have many magical spins, even if the game is a bit lacklustre on the design front.
