Aristocrat this year launched a new version of one of its most popular game franchises when the Mr. Cashman series was married with the new Viridian WS wide-screen cabinet, which features a sleek, ergonomic design, interactive edge lighting and a dynamic LCD button deck.
The Mr. Cashman wide-screen edition is being launched with four base games—African Dusk (pictured), Jailbird, Jewel of Enchantress and Magic Eyes. All are 20-line, penny video slots.
Each base game has a game-specific bonus, initiated by the familiar coin-man character launched with the original franchise.
The Mr. Cashman Bonus is only available with the maximum bet, which encourages higher overall coin-in. (The minimum bet is 20 credits plus a five-credit ante.)
The Mr. Cashman Bonus can occur randomly at the end of any spin, and can trigger one of five individual features:
In “Random Spin,” the Mr. Cashman character appears and randomly spins one or more reels, and then all wins are paid at 3X, 5X or 10X.
“Choose A Feature” lets the player do just that—the choice is to touch a money bag to win up to 1,000 credits times the line bet, or touch a gift box to win five, 10, 15 or 20 free games, with all wins multiplied by 2X, 3X or 5X.
“Random Bonus” has the character appear to give the player a bonus prize of up to 50,000 credits times the line bet.
“Match the Prize” prompts the player to touch stars until two matching prizes are revealed. The prize is up to 1,000 credits times the line bet, or 40, 20, 10 or five free games with wins multiplied by one, two, three or five respectively.
In “Poker Machine,” Mr. Cashman reveals a bonus prize of up to 999 credits multiplied by the line bet.
