We Check Out Caishen’s Cash the Latest Oriental Themed 243-Way Slot From Pragmatic Play!
Videoslots Casino has recently added the latest online slot release from Pragmatic Play titled Caishen’s Cash which is an oriental themed slot that comes packed with a variety of special features and boasts win potential in excess of 22,000 x stake!
Firstly, this slot is a regular 5×3 reel array and uses the popular 243-way payline format, you have a mixture of classic oriental-themed high paying symbols along with stacked “Money” symbols that are key to this machine and contain a variety of random cash amounts.
Along the top of the reels, you will also find a variety of different jackpot on offer, whilst these aren’t progressives they are based on your current bet size and range from 25x right up to 1000x. The main Jackpot feature can be randomly triggered in the base game whenever a special wild symbol lands in view, basically, it’s just randomly triggered.
There are 2 unique bonus rounds features to choose from, to trigger these you need to land 6 or more of the special Money symbols anywhere on the reels, additional symbols will simply increase the total value of these Money symbols during the bonuses, the combined value of the money symbols will have an effect on the potential of each bonus round, so bigger money values are definitely something to look out for.
Once the bonus has been triggered you then have the option of picking the Money Respin Feature or opting for the more regular Free Spins Bonus Round, it’s probably worth checking both features out if you decide to play this slot for real as they seem to have a similar win potential but play out very differently.

Jackpot Bonus Game
The Jackpot feature is triggered from the base game randomly, it has a chance to trigger when a special wild symbol lands in view on the middle reels.
Once triggered you then play out a simple picking bonus round, reveal 3 identical symbols to win that particular jackpot.
If you opt to select the free spins round then all of the lowest paying symbols are removed from the reels before the bonus round begins, also every time a special wild symbol lands in view the accumulated cash total from the “trigger” is awarded as a win on top of any regular wins.
Money Respin Feature
If you opt to select the Money Respin Feature then you are granted a bonus where the special Money symbols total on triggering become even more important, the free spins play out with any new money symbols landing in view being held on the reels.
The interesting part here is there a new red coloured money symbol in play which not only adds the initial Money symbol cash total but adds all of the totals currently in view on the reels, Landing several of these can very quickly increase the win totals.
Although this bonus round has a limited number of starting free spins, you can earn extra spins during play that help to prolong this bonus round giving you more respins.
Caishen's Cash Slot
Caishen’s Gold was surprisingly better than we imagined, whilst the oriental theme is definitely overused on slots at least this release offers a broad range of unique bonus features that keep things interesting.
Out of the two bonus features we actually preferred the Money Respin Feature, and this is mainly down to the fact that when the special Red symbols land in view they become an accumulated total of all the previously held symbols, landing a few of those can quickly increase your total win size very quickly!
We did manage to land a few jackpot features in our playtests along with bonus rounds in the range of 25x up to 100x, with plenty more potential in both features.
Overall its a probably not a slot you are going to rush out of your way to play, but it might be worth a few hundred spins in a session to check out the bonus features or a chance of a jackpot.
