The very first progressive pokie to hit the market, and one that spawned an entire industry, CashSplash is iconic and just as relevant now as it was when it was first launched. This pokie has been updated a little, so the version you can now find on sites like Spin Palace is a little better than the one that made those first pokie millionaires so many years ago.
CashSplash is very basic. The visuals are bright and bold and there are no 3D graphics or exciting themes. This is as simple as it gets, but there are some features here that set CashSplash apart from the old-school arcade pokies that share a similar aesthetic.
This 5 reel, 15 payline slot can be played from $0.02 to $0.20, with wilds, multipliers and more thrown in. The progressive jackpot is definitely the main lure, and this is triggered when you land 5 of the wild symbols on a single payline. Away from the progressive jackpot, the total of which changes all of the time, there is a maximum win of 6000 coins. This is very small, but the progressive more than makes up for it.
There is no bonus round as such on CashSplash, with the developers concentrating 100% on the progressive jackpot and hoping this would do the talking for them. There are scatter symbols, but getting these anywhere on the reels will simply unlock a set amount, up to 250x, as opposed to triggering any sort of free spin round or bonus round.
CashSplash was a little more impressive when it was first released, because with no bonus round and some basic visuals, it does not have much going for it. The progressive jackpot is a nice addition and one that is welcome in any pokie, but it’s not enough to make this a worthwhile choice in an industry that is not short on impressive pokies.
