Cashapillar is an infectious (or is that insectious?) video slot machine courtesy of Microgaming. Cashapillar is a 5-reel, 100-payline machine, with a maximum bet of 1,000 coins when playing all 100 paylines.
Cashapillar features a cute theme of a caterpillar's birthday party, with images of various cute crawly things (including a lady bug, a snail, and a beetle), and a rather yummy looking birthday cake (who knew caterpillars liked cake). The only symbol that seems somewhat out of place is the wave Cashapillar symbol, which functions as the wild and multiplier symbol. As a wild symbol it doubles the payout rate for any winning payline. The scatter symbol is that tasty looking birthday cake, with any 2 appearing on a line creating a winning combination, and 3 of those treats on any one payline activating the bonus spins round.
The bonus round grants the player 15 free spins, and every win achieved in this mode is worth triple its regular amount. When 3 of those birthday cakes pop up again, yet more free spins will be added to your total. The Cashapillar logo appearing on a winning payline in free spins mode meanwhile creates a 6X multiplier. As the cashapillar logo can randomly appeared stacked on some reels, it can create some massive winning combinations and 6X multiplier wins in the free spins mode. Even with 100 payliens, winning combinations are relatively hard to come by, which makes taking advantage of the free spins mode the key to victory and bundles of coins.
Cashapillar has a gamble feature in which you can double your winnings on any spin by correctly guessing the card's colour. The gamble feature is limited to 5 times per game or when the maximum gamble limit of 8,000 coins is reached. So you could effectively double your winnings 5 times over with some fancy guessing, turning a modest 200 coin win into a 6,400 coin windfall.
Lastly, Cashapillar contains an expert mode in which you can specify the number of consecutive spins for the game to make on your behalf and sit back and watch the action (or go to the kitchen for a slice of cake while the game spins away, hopefully returning with a full stomach and some more coins in your pocket).
Anyone who loves action will enjoy Cashapillar. The cute graphics and fun music make for a pleasant slots experience, while the 100-paylines and potential for stacked wilds on any reel can create some huge winning combinations, especially in free spins mode.
