We open with a Power Ranger type theme song, almost indicating these herd of animals are superheroes, but once it calms down we are greeted with more of a video game soundtrack. Regardless, the sounds create a suspenseful ambience, which we think is what NextGen are going for.
NextGen have made this slot compatible on desktop computers and laptops and mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, meaning you can also play on-the-go on the latest Apple iPhone 6s, any Android device, Blackberry, or even Windows portable devices.
Cash Stampede symbols and features
While we enter the plains of Africa, NextGen have still included the traditional 10, J, Q, K, and A as the lower value symbols, with five of any of these paying 50 coins. The middle value symbols are the African animals featuring buffalos, antelopes, elephants, horses and rhinos, with five of any of these symbols paying 100 coins.
- Wild symbol: The Wild symbol is the game’s logo and it substitutes for every symbol except the Scatter. It is important to note the Wild symbol only appears on reel 3.
- Scatter symbols: The Scatter is the gold coin symbol that has the text ‘Bonus’ and pays 50 coins when you spin at least three on reels 2, 3, and 4, while three Scatters also trigger the Free Spins feature.
Cash Stampede doesn’t include multipliers, but there are two other bonus features.
- Free spins: Spin at least three Scatter symbols to trigger eight free spins. Here a Wild symbol is Held, which gives you a better chance at triggering the Re-Spins feature too.
- Cash Stampede re-spins: Any win created with both the animal symbols and a Wild symbol will see a Re-Spin activated where the Wild sticks around. You can also trigger more Re-Spins if you spin these symbols during your Re-Spin.
Our thoughts on Cash Stampede
We aren’t too sure about the theme, because why a herd of animals would be stampeding for cash that they don’t need just doesn’t compute with us. However, the graphics are executed smoothly and we find that the slot regularly pays out to keep our balance steady until we trigger the bonuses.
The Re-Spins feature is activated quite easily – we managed to do it a few times – and re-triggering the Re-Spin during the feature is easy thanks to the Wild symbol sticking around. We also got a big payout in accordance to to our wager by spinning another Wild during the Re-Spin.
The Free Spins feature is a lot harder to trigger and we don’t think eight free spins is very generous anyway so we have to say we prefer the Re-Spins feature.
We also played it on our smartphone and found it to run quite smoothly, which sees this slot checking all our boxes.
