Flash Cash is a pokie inspired by fast cars and cash. While the symbols on the reels mainly point to organised racing (including trophies and chequered flags), there is more than a hint of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ movie franchise about this slot too. Burning tyres, crash helmets and fast sports cars also appear on the reels, while a lightning streaked dollar sign acts as the wild symbol.
This Ainsworth designed game is high in energy – playing at as fast a pace as the cars themselves. Here’s the standout moments of Flash Cash:
The golden trophy acts as the scatter symbol in Flash Cash. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll receive an instant win of 2x, 10x or 50x your total bet. In addition, 3 or more bonus symbols will also activate the free spins bonus game.
Each of the free spins plays differently to the base game, as the wilds now appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (as opposed to being stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game). Any time a wild appears on reels 2 or 4, it will expand to cover the entire reel. These additional expanded wilds will enable more wins as it is, but this feature gets much better than that.
During the free spins, you’ll find an extra 6th reel in play. On this reel you’ll find a combination of 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers, trophy scatter symbols and blanks. If you land one of the multipliers this will be immediately applied to any win – the perfect spin being a big ‘5 in a row’ win with the 5x multiplier on reel 6.
The free spins can be retriggered at any time. Land three trophy symbols and five additional free spins will be added to your existing total. These retriggers are made that much easier due to the trophy symbol now appearing on six reels instead of five, so expect additional spins on a regular basis.
Flash Cash is played on the popular 5×3 reel set up, with a set number of 30 win-lines (that all pay from left to right), the cost of each spin being the same 30 credits.
The metallic orange/red sports car is the highest payer in the game, worth 500 coins for the maximum five in a row. A bottle of champagne, chequered flag combination is next and pays 400 coins, while the speedometer, the flaming tyre and the crash helmet are next. At the low end of the pay table are the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol is represented by the dollar sign. This stacked wild will substitute for every other symbol in the game apart from the trophy (in both the base game and the feature) and the multipliers on the 6th reel (in the feature).
The backdrop to Flash Cash shows the view from the driver’s seat of a race at night, with the headlights illuminating the road ahead. With cars either side, it looks like the driver is poised to squeeze through the middle and take the lead of the race.
The reels are transparent, ensuring the action remains in view, while the symbols add colour to the darkness. The standout symbol is the vibrant wild, which is represented by a dollar sign with a lightning strike through the middle. Throughout Flash Cash, a high-octane soundtrack accompanies your play, including the screeches of tyres and the revving of engines.
Flash Cash is a pokie that will certainly have a great appeal for every petrol head out there. The game is high on energy from start to finish, while the visuals paint an all-action picture too. With those stacked wilds throughout the base game, any spin can quickly turn into a huge winning one. Enter the free spins feature and the action steps up another gear, as the bonus reel adds multipliers into the mix (as well as further scatters for easier retriggers). Put it all together and this is a game that you’ll want to play for lap after lap.
