Four Exciting Themes Linked by Cash on Reels Awards
Aristocrat has chosen some familiar themes for their latest series of pokies. Pure Cash has it all – jackpots, bonus rounds and unique wild symbols. These are aimed squarely at mid-denomination players and feature professional graphics and stunning animations.
Here are the 4 different themes:
Jackpots change as you move up the denominations. In addition, you’ll get big scatter wins, and stacked wilds for multi-line hits.
The list below gives you a flavour of what to expect:
The feature which each of the Pure Cash (Dynasty, Tiger, Jaguar & Mayan)pokies shares involves special symbols with money literally printed on them. These are the wild symbols in each title. They come stacked on the reels, with some games in this series having reels 2 and 4 extra-stacked.
While this looks similar to the Hold N Spin setup of the Lightning Link games, things work differently with Pure Cash. You need to line up the cash awards on win-lines to get paid. This gives you the opportunity to win the amounts printed on them on any spin. It also gives you the chance at scooping a bonus award or progressive jackpots.
Bonus awards take the form of mini and minor jackpot bonuses. These are fixed amounts, which will rise as your denomination does. The major and grand jackpots are progressives, which are tied to individual machines. To win these you need to get 5 of a kind cash symbols. The grand is yours if you get these on the middle reel only.
These make a big difference to the game-play. While each title has its own feature, the chance of a jackpot dropping in on any spin keeps the base game engaging.
Each title offers a unique twist on the free games bonus. You can trigger these with 3 or more scatters as usual (these are the main symbols in each game, for example the Tigers or Mayan lady). You can also retrigger for between 3 and 5 free games with more scatters during play.
Here are the variations to look out for:
These pokies were introduced in Queensland Australia first, and are now available in New South Wales and the Capital, Victoria and Tasmania. The Tiger and Mayan versions are also available in South Australia and Northern Territory.
As with all Aristocrat pokies, it is only a matter of time before they appear in other casinos and around the world too!
There is an interesting choice to make before you spin – with two contrasting win-line options. You can play with 25 lines or just 5 lines over the 5-reel, 3 row grid. If you are playing fewer lines, you can up your denomination – bringing in bigger jackpots. The choices for coin size are 5c, 10c, 20c or $1.
Symbols for the line hits are themed on each game. For the Mayan slot the leading symbol shows the eyes of a beautiful native woman. For the Tiger and Jaguar online pokie, the big cats take centre stage. Dynasty is an Asian themed pokie. Here you will find another eyes-view, this time the green eyes of a beautiful Asian lady.
Expect playing cards for your smaller wins, as well as plenty of unique symbols for those mid-sized pays.
Recent pokies from Aristocrat look amazing compared to their legacy games. The Pure Cash series is no exception. It is hard to pick out one of the four which really stands out. The Pure Cash ‘Jaguar’ and ‘Tiger’ games feature a full face of the big cat staring at you from above the reels. Females take the lead with the ‘Mayan’ and ‘Dynasty’ titles.
Above the reels you will see a list of the jackpots and bonus awards. The grand jackpot, which is seeded at $10,000 takes pride of place – stretching across the top of the cabinet. You can switch denomination quickly and easily. Simply tap the coin size icon on the bottom right corner of the screen.
There is plenty of sparkle about the animations. Things get intensive when you line up 4 of the cash amounts, with the 5th one keeping you waiting while you see if you won a jackpot. Individual symbols are nicely animated – though for me far less hectic than the Welcome to the Fabulous Jackpots series!
Aristocrat has targeted mid-denomination players with an enticing package with the 4 games in the Pure Cash pokies series. Each one is beautifully designed. With the ability to win bonuses and jackpots right from the base-game, this series is not so reliant on features as many others. That should keep the interest levels high while you spin.
Each title has a unique twist for the free spins bonus games. Whether you like wild stacks, replicating wilds, nudging wilds or steady wild reels – there is something for you.
