Cash Caboose is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot that focuses on railroads and those who work in the industry. Of course, this game puts a fun twist on the subject through the use of cartoon graphics and animations. Does this combine to create an entertaining slot? Let's answer this question by looking at all of the main aspects of Cash Caboose slots.
Symbols and Theme
Behind the reels, you'll see two train cars, tracks, and a desert background. The graphics are designed with an old cartoon-style appearance that doesn't look the greatest.
However, the symbol graphics look better since they offer richer color and more detail. These symbols include: a train engine (wild), caboose (scatter), engineer, bandit, moneybags, cactus, A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9.
The engine substitutes for every symbol except the caboose. It also pays the most, offering 5,000 coins for 5 symbols, 1,500 for 4, 100 for 3, and 10 for 2. The engineer also pays well, delivering 1,500 coins for 5 symbols in a payline.
What makes this game fun is some of the animations that you see following wins. A couple of examples include the engine rolling down the track while making a tooting sound, and the caboose shooting dollar signs out while a banjo plays.
You can play anywhere from 1 to 25 paylines in this slot. Given that the coin size goes as low as one cent, you can use all 25 lines for just $0.25.
If you'd like to quickly use all 25 paylines, click Max Bet to do so. On the right-hand side of the screen, you'll also find an autoplay option. Click this to keep the reels spinning automatically, and click it again to stop the option.
Cash Caboose Slots Special Features
The caboose offers scatter payouts on your total triggering bet when landing twice anywhere on the reels. Scatter payouts include 100x (5 symbols), 20x (4 symbols), 5x (3 symbols), and 2x (2 symbols).
The caboose also triggers free spins when landing at least three times on the reels. You get 15 free spins for 5 cabooses, 10 spins for 4, and 5 spins for 3.
Also note that all payouts are multiplied 3x during free spins. In the case of 5 wild symbols, which is normally worth 5k coins, you'd earn 15,000 credits.
Final Thoughts on Cash Caboose Slots
Cash Caboose is a fun, cartoonish game that takes place in the Wild West, as evidenced by the bandit with two guns. While we're not big fans of the background graphics, the symbols look solid and perfectly reflect the theme. We also like the animations, which add some action to the game.
Other positive aspects to Cash Caboose include free spins, multipliers, and scatter payouts. We'd like to see a second-screen bonus added so that this game has a different look once and a while. But aside from minor drawbacks, Cash Caboose is an entertaining railroad slot that's worth playing for 30 minutes or so.
