Playtech is jumping on the popular Mining-themed slot bandwagon this month, with the launch of their newest game. Gemstones and precious ore, axes, lanterns and miners all make up the more predictable and generic imagery in this new release, which should be available to play from this week onwards.
Known as Cascading Cave, the new Playtech slot initially looks as though there are some overly complicated features to get to grips with. However, after spinning the reels for just a few moments, players are likely going to find the game much more manageable than it first seems.
The Inside Track on Cascading Cave
The 5 reels of this new slot are set inside a cave, which adds to the theme of the release. Straddling those reels sits 20 paylines, with players able to easily flex the wagers in the game from a floor of 10p a spin, up to £500 a game. Prizes are worth around 2,000x a stake.
Understandably, there are a few special symbols in this release, including both wilds and scatters. Wilds (appearing as diamonds) can substitute for all symbols save for scatters. On any winning spin, the reels will collapse, and winning symbols will disappear from them, to be replaced by new ones. This collapsing reels system can potentially deliver several wins in succession for players.
Unique and Rare Features
Scatters show up as TNT icons, and these can trigger a Diamond Drop bonus when 2 or 3 appear. The Diamond Drop bonus will dish out wild symbols onto the reels, and diamonds located above the reels will display numbers. These will essentially become multiplier wilds, and stacked ones at that. Additional multiplier wilds (ranging from 2x up to 5x) in value, will come into play with the collapsing reels system, resulting in decent prizes being paid out, the more wins in succession a player manages to land with said feature.
Regrettably, it seems as though Playtech have decided not to include a free spin bonus round in the Cascading Caves slot. However, the surplus of collapsing reels and multiplier wilds should more than make up for that.
