King Cashalot Slot
King Cashalot is a 5-reel, 9-pay line progressive jackpot slot. Powered by Microgaming's Quickfire platform, this slot has been around for some considerable time, crowning players with jackpot wins that sometimes reach prizes in excess of £1 million. The facts about this tasty jackpot as as follows:
- Jackpot re-seeds at: £100,000.
- Biggest win: £1,527,228.
- Average win: £568,880.
- Average time: 62 weeks.
As you can see, King Cashalot does not unleash the strings of the royal jackpot purse on too regular a basis. This is mainly because this game is a slot with a very low fee – just £0.45 – that you have to pay if you want to 'spin to win'. This in turn means that the main jackpot is trickle-fed and takes time to snowball into life-changing amounts. Nevertheless, someone has to win it, even if several months can go by without the jackpot being won. Indeed, at the time of writing the King Cashalot progressive jackpot had not been won for over two years! The bad news is that interest in this slot has waned, and the current value of the jackpot (again, at the time of writing) was 'merely' £675,000.
The theme of this slot appears to be concerned with a royal, medieval banquet. The whole family seems to be represented upon the reels – King Cashalot and his many-chinned wife, plus a knight and red-headed princess. A range of food items also make an appearance, including a table-toppling trifle. Your coin size is fixed at 0.05, although you can select the number of lines you want in play from one to all nine (you need all nine to have a chance of winning the progressive jackpot). You can set your bet level from one to five – multiply these three variables together to arrive at your final wager-per-spin. Hit 'spin' to set the reels in motion.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start off at 2x for three fruit salads or trembling trifles. The top, non-progressive jackpot is 15,000x for five of good King Cashalot himself.
Speaking of his royalness, King Cashalot is wild in this game (probably because of the money he has to give away). He subs for all other symbols aside from the scatter and treasure bonus symbols. If you land five of King Cashalot on the ninth pay line then guess what … you've just won the progressive jackpot!
A jolly jester acts as the scatter symbol in King Cashalot's court. Score at least two of him anywhere on the reels to win some cash, and the more of him you see, the more you win!
A golden dragon (Game of Thrones, anyone?) acts as the bonus symbol. If you land three dragons anywhere on the central three reels (one per reel) you trigger the treasure bonus game. In this game the good king gives you three chances to choose a treasure chest from the eight available. You can pick three chests but the last one you pick is what you win. If you want to collect after picking one or two chests, then the king will allow it.
With a RTP of less than ninety-one percent, it's perhaps clear why perhaps King Cashalot is not as popular as he once was. If you like old-fashioned slots with the chance of winning a progressive jackpot for not much outlay, then this is the slot for you. If not, then look elsewhere!
