When Cashoccino initially arrived in 2014, it quickly disappeared from shelves. We were stunned to see Microgaming bring back such a lackluster slot machine. Totally defies logic. It’s been so long since Microgaming launched a solid game that we’d much prefer evaluate something brand new and exciting, but we’ll have to make do with this.
Cashoccino is a traditional slot machine with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 30 paylines. The HTML5 revamp made it accessible on devices ranging in price from $0.30 to $30. You may increase the betting range from €0.45 to €45 by clicking the “Extra Bet” button.
This slot machine reminds us a lot of The Finer Reels of Life, one of Microgaming’s all-time finest, although Cashoccino feels more like a discarded prototype from before they nailed it with TFR. Music reminiscent of the Italian Riviera plays softly in the background as you spin the reels of this cappuccino-themed slot machine. Actually, it was just a beautiful sounding phrase.
Symbols for Cashoccino
On the reels, you’ll find the standard playing card values (9, 10, J, Q, K, and A) as well as five coffee logos, the most lucrative of which is the Cafe Latte at 166x for 5 of a kind. The symbols don’t appear stacked complete reels, in fact, it’s likely not even possible to hit 2 of the same symbols on one reel which is part of the reason for the limited potential. You may win 333 times your wager if you line up 5 wild symbols in a row on a single payline in this game.
Spins for Free Cashoccino
Okay, so the main game is pointless, thus the focus should be on the bonus spins. If 3 or more scatter symbols appear on any reel, you’ll receive 15 free spins; but, if you choose the “Extra Bet” option in the main game, you’ll receive 30 free spins instead, for a 50% boost in your wager value. In addition, any wins are multiplied by three, and players receive an additional free game if two scatter symbols appear. Additional free spins of 30 are provided if three or more scatter symbols appear. If you want any real chance of winning in this game, you’ll need to use the Extra Bet feature.
Final Thoughts on Cashocchio
In the bonus round, the maximum win on Cappuccino is worth almost a thousand times your wager if you hit a wild line. This is a low to medium volatility slot, so it’s possible, but you’ll probably have to settle for a lot less than that. We quickly became bored with the game, and not just because of the poor payout structure. Despite the bonus round’s x3 multiplier, the 30 free spins drag on for much too long. However, it has promise because of the high amount of free spins that may be won.
