With three bonus features and a progressive jackpot on offer, the Monster Cash slot lives up to its name. It’s a horror-themed title from Inspired Gaming that can be found at selected online casinos. The five transparent reels are framed in wrought-iron railings adorned with skulls, through which players can see the spooky graveyard under a full moon.
The icons make use of horror classics, drawn as 3D cartoons. Players can choose to engage between 1 and 20 pay lines, with a bet per line ranging from 1 to 2,000 coins. The game also uses just six ordinary symbols, which increase players’ chances of more winning combos. Along with three bonus features and a progressive jackpot, this can make Monster Cash quite profitable.
Poker Symbols, Bats and Gargoyles
Monster Cash uses only three poker symbols, the J, Q and K, drawn in blue, green and red as ragged parchment letters. Js and Qs win identical prizes: 5, 10 or 25 coins for three, four or five matches on a pay line from Reel 1. The K wins 10, 20 or 50 coins for the same sequences.
The three higher-value icons are a smug gargoyle, a goofy-looking bat and the Monster Cash logo. For matching combos of three, four or five, the gargoyle wins 15, 25 or 75 coins, the bat wins 25, 50 or 250 coins, and the logo wins 100, 250 or 1,500 coins.
A wide-eyed, bandaged mummy is the first Monster Cash bonus Scatter icon. Three or more anywhere on the reels trigger the Mummy Bonus, showing the player a selection of graves and coffins in the churchyard. Players must pick a grave to reveal a cash amount, and a coffin to reveal the multiplier on the bonus.
Frank’s Dash Bonus
Frankenstein’s monster is the second Monster Cash bonus Scatter, and three or more trigger the Frank’s Dash feature. The player must keep hitting the button to force the monster along a track; the further he gets, the higher the bonus multiplier. On this round, player can win as much as 160X their total bet on the spin.
Spooky Spins and a Creepy Wild
The third Scatter is the Spooky Spins ghost. Three or more will trigger a bonus round of 5, 10, or 15 free spins. Free spins can also be reactivated by more Spooky Spins Scatters during this bonus round.
The Monster Cash Wild is formed by blood-red candles spelling out the word Wild, although some versions use a creepy green goo instead. It has the usual power of being able to replace any of the six ordinary icons to complete winning combos.
Dracula Delivers the Progressive Jackpot
Monster Cash is also linked into a progressive jackpot network, with a total that increases constantly as people play around the world. The Drac’s Cash progressive total is displayed at the top of the screen, mounting up in real time. A final Scatter, featuring Count Dracula in front of his castle, is the trigger for this jackpot. However, players need five Dracula Scatters showing on the reels to win it.
