Wild Multipliers and Free Spins in this All-Ways Under the Sea Themed Pokie
Whales of Cash is a five-reel pokie from Aristocrat, featuring an array of under the sea creatures, each given a comic-book style makeover. The whale itself is the symbol you want to see, this sea mammal holding a money bag and wearing a top hat. The whale is the wild symbol and offers up some incredible multipliers throughout the game. Joining the whale is a crab, a starfish, an octopus in a treasure chest and an oyster, all smiling and enjoying their time in the game.
Reasons to Enjoy Winning Whales of Cash
This Aristocrat designed pokie is an adventure in the ocean, with the following range of features:
Throughout both the base game and the bonus feature you’ll be on the lookout for the whale. The whale acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the money bag scatter. This wild appears on reels 2 and 4 only but it can have a huge impact. Any time you land a win with a single wild, the pay-out will be multiplied by two, which is always a nice boost.
However, if you land a win with wilds on reels 2 and 4, the two multipliers work together to increase your pay out to 4x! When you consider that two wilds increase the chance of a win and big pays anyway, a 4x multiplier added into the mix can make for some mega wins.
To enter the free spins feature you’ll need to land those money bag symbols. Hit 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 10, 15 or 25 free spins respectively. At first glance, the feature looks like it plays in exactly the same way as the base game – that is until the wilds start to land. The wild multipliers now increase to 4x for a win with a single wild.
Things get incredibly interesting when you win with two wilds, as once again they work together, but this time offer a huge 16x multiplier. Land a series of wins in the feature with those wilds and you’re virtually certain of a mega win or two.
Whales of Cash plays out on the popular 5×3 reel configuration. However, unlike the majority of games with a set number of win lines, this pokie employs the ‘Reel Power’ system. Reel Power is Aristocrat’s take on the all-ways winning system, meaning you’ll win when lining up matching symbols on consecutive reels from left to right. This gives players 243 winning opportunities on every spin, which come at the cost of just 25 credits.
The starfish is the highest paying symbol in the game, joined by the oyster, the crab and the octopus in the chest (you can assume it’s an octopus in the chest, unless the chest itself has grown tentacles). Like many pokies, the lower end of the pay table is filled by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Whales of Cash pokie has been designed with fun in mind. All the sea creatures have beaming smiles on their faces, which will almost certainly do the same to your face while playing. The whale is the standout character, a mammal who is clearly living the high life, with its top hat and bag of cash. Check out the animation any time you land a win with the bonus or the scatter – the whale clearly loves to do flips! The whole game takes place against the blue background of the sea, while an upbeat soundtrack plays throughout.
Aristocrat have developed an entertaining pokie in Whales of Cash. Any time you hit spin on a Reel Power slot you’ll know a win is never more than a few spins away. With those wilds with added multipliers on the reels too, you’ll be on the lookout for those oversized wins throughout. Things get more interesting during the bonus feature, when those 16x multipliers can make for some enormous pays. If you enjoy Whales of Cash, check out Whales of Cash Deluxe too!
