The designers of this themed game were not overly creative and the overall design appears to be chosen from a computerized To Do list following a boring corporate committee meeting. The title has the word “cave” in it, so let’s see, what lives in/is associated with a cave? Ah, a bear. So the game’s mascot becomes a bear. This is a slots game, yeah? So the bear has lots of cash. Score one for the Luddites.
Despite its sophomoric beginnings, the designers fleshed out the theme by adding as theme symbols piles of cash, gemstones, gold bars, dollar signs, dice, and icons representing the standard poker card game cards and, of course, its mascot, the Bear. They dumped everything in a bag and shook it up and came up with this slots theme. The theme is not bad, just not very inventive or creative. To its credit, however, is its excitement of play and larger payouts. That’s what really matters, correct?
The bear is not a teddy bear or cuddly bear but rather a late teenager or early 20s bear. He’s hip, good-looking, always happy and seems carefree as he throws cash at you whenever you score big winnings. Even though he’s a very friendly bear, he gets stuck with the unfortunate name Wild Bear because he also serves as the game’s Wild symbol.
Cash Cave, while very intuitive to play, didn’t come to play in the park. It is stuffed with the power of five reels coupled with a 3-tiered stack and a whopping 100 paylines. With that much firepower at your disposal, you know your chances of hitting it big are great. The dollar sign, as its name suggests, is a high money rewarder, paying out as much as 200 credits if you score a five-of-a-kind combo. If you score 5 Scatters, they will multiply your present wager by 100 times. If you get a five-of-a-kind combo across all five reels, you will be awarded 200 credits or 200 coins. The highest achievable payout during a base game is 20,000 coins. By deftly joining Bonus Spins, combos and Cash Cave free games it is theoretically possible to hit 160,000 coins.
If you get three Scatters anywhere on the screen, you’ll get 10 free spins. During the 10 free spins, the happy Wild Bear will appear on every reel except the first one. You could get a multiplier of two times or three times your stake, depending on which other triggering icons also occupy the screen. Additionally, the Wild Bear can appear in other winning combos that trigger a multiplier from 8x down to 2x. Different multipliers are activated depending on which symbols appear alongside the Wild Bear or Cash Cave Scatters. Again, different combos will net you up to five Cash Cave Bonus Spins. The Wild Bear and the Cash Cave also act as substitutes and can transform themselves into any of the game’s other symbols to give you additional bonus coins or Bonus Spins.
You will instantly know when you hit a Bonus Round because you will hear a loud bell. It’s loud, but it’s a good loud because you know that’s the signal that more money is coming. The loud sound keeps the adrenaline flowing. As soon as you start the Bonus Spin a lively soundtrack starts to play and further pumps up the excitement, followed by the appearance of many more happy Wild Bear symbols during the Bonus Spins. Makes you fall in love with the loud bell.
During the Bonus Rounds, a pseudo reel appears on screen that indicates the multiplier being applied to each winning reel with winning symbols or combination symbols. Each spin increases the multiplier on each winning reel from 2x right up to 8x, thereby increasing your winnings as you continue to spin. This is the time to strive for the super Five-Spin feature. During the Five-Spin feature, every reel gives you an 8x multiplier on every payline! That’s when you enter the big coin phase. You can see why Cash Cave is one of Ainsworth Slots’ most popular and exciting games in Las Vegas.
As indicated earlier, Cash Cave really hit it big in Las Vegas around 2016 and can now be found in the better casinos like MGM Grand, Golden Nugget, The Palms and Bally’s. Two years later, you can also find this slots game prominently positioned in land-based casinos in New Zealand, the UK, and Australia. You can expect this game to expand around the globe in the next few years because of its excitement, soundtrack and main mascot, the Bear, because many cultures around the world like China, Russia, Canada, etc., admire the mighty bear as a good luck or cultural symbol.
