How about a slot game based on royalties and riches? That's exactly what King Cashalot is all about. Featured symbols that could hardly be associated with something other than this theme and a massive progressive jackpot, which actually has made this slot quite famous.
MicroGaming, who have developed this game, released it in 2006 that is quite a while ago. However, even though the graphics or features aren't really up to date anymore, players keep playing it and once in a while we hear about a new jackpot winner. Note that the progressive jackpot in this game gets as high as $1,5 million. Average win is just around $700,000 though – not bad at all!
Without the jackpot, there also is an additional feature– bonus round in whom you are offered with a chance of opening treasure boxes. These hide credits in them so you'll win even more cash!
How To Play
The King Cashalot slot is a little bit more ''loaded'', when compared to most fruit machine games. That's quite logical, as this is actually a video slot even though it might not be all that obvious.
You'll be able to wager on up to 9 pay-lines and this variable can be adjusted by using the ''Select Lines'' button. To change the size of coins used for betting, adjust them using +/- tabs. Between 1 to 5 coins can be used to make wagers on pay-lines, use the ''select coins'' button for adjusting this.
Apart from that, the ''bet max'' button can be used to wager highest amount of coins possible (5), while spinning the game right after this button is clicked.
Some players like to use an autoplay feature that pretty much allows you to relax and watch how game plays by itself. This can be done through the ''Expert'' mode. Use button with the same line on it to enter it.
So how is the progressive jackpot claimed? Is it through the bonus round or added randomly? Well, the truth is that neither of these ways will help you to claim something is likely worth close to a coll million. Progressive jackpot is won when 5 wild symbols appear on the 9th pay-line. Yeah, the chances are quite slim, but why wouldn't you take a slim chance for winning a million dollars?
Strategy & Tips
A little bit more about the progressive payout. It is claimed when 5 wilds appear on the 9th pay-line, but you also have to wager the maximum bet for it to happen. In King Cashalot slot this is a relatively small one of $2.25 to give more players a chance of claiming that big chunk of cash. It's also there to fit all kinds of players – you can deposit a small amount and still claim it.
While we did refer to the fact that all players have a chance of claiming this jackpot, you should also follow the 1% rule, when playing this game. It means that you only wager an amount that is equal or smaller to 1% of your total balance. To play this slot for the maximum bet ($2.25) you should have $225 in your account. It's up to you, whether you want or don't want to take this advice, though.
