Microgaming didn’t choose the most original theme ever for Scoop the Cash. The slot is simply based on gold coins and cash, and you see them in almost all the symbols of this game. Either that, or there is a gold color somewhere in there, but gold is always hinted at. The theme might not be original, but at least you can tell that you have a decent looking design, the quality of the drawings being very good. As features, you get the scatters, the bonus game, the free spins, multipliers and the wild. There are also 25 pay lines, with the cash prizes getting to values of $10,000.
Betting and Prizes
I recommend you use all the lines available to you, 25 of them total, which would require a minimum bet of $0.25 per spin. You can take it even higher from there, either by increasing the coin value up to $0.20, by increasing the number of coins per line up to 10, or by doing both. You can use line bets of up to $2 and a total bet can reach $50.
The big prize to go after in this case will have 50,000 coins for you at best, but their actual value will not go past $10,000, not in the base Scoop the Cash game at least.
Scoop the Cash Slot Features
A very important symbol in Scoop the Cash would be the one which has its logo on it. This symbol is both a wild and a scatter, a rather rare type of feature icon. As a wild, it will form a regular combo with its own symbols, capable of paying up to 5,000x this way. As a scatter, it will also pay you with five randomly placed symbols, in which case it will multiply the total bet by 250x. When not paying you, it will be a substitute for a regular symbol, as long as it is present in the right position.
Access to the free spins is obtained when 3 to 5 Safe Scatters are present. The rewards will be at 5x the bet + 10 free spins, 20x the bet + 15 free spins, or 50x the bet + 20 free spins, for 3, 4 or 5 icons. While using the free spins, all wins will be doubled.
The third and final feature comes from the Dice symbol. This is another scatter, but one which only appears on the middle reels. With all three scatters present, and with 25 lines active that round, you can trigger a bonus game with 2 to 4 dice rolls. Up to 100x the bet can be won here.
Theme & Design
The theme is not very original, with its reliance on gold, coins and banknotes, but at least the quality of the design is good. You will find inside symbols with dice, a safe, some rich guy, wheelbarrows with gold in them, as well as poker cards surrounded by money.
Scoop the Cash has its advantages, mainly in the quality of the design and in its features, but it has a common type of theme and prizes which are considered pretty regular.
