Thunder Cash Classic

This is Ainsworth’s latest high-denomination game, on the A-STAR Curve or Curve XL cabinet, its traditional setup including a full pay schedule above the three-reel array. The art, symbols and features are inspired by the original five-reel Thunder Cash game.

The base game is a three-reel, nine-line game with traditional bar combinations, four “7” combinations, and five Thunder Cash logo combinations, the top returning 10,000 credits when landing on the first through fourth paylines. The logo symbols also are wild, substituting in other line combinations.

During the primary game, multiplier symbols can overlay on the reels to enhance wins with multipliers up to 125X.

There are three progressive jackpots available. The bottom two are mystery “Must Hit By” prizes that rise according to the denomination, a rare feature for a three-reel game. At the quarter level, the Minor resets at $150 and must hit by $200; and the Major resets at $4,000, and must hit by $5,000. At the 50-cent level, the Minor resets at $200 and must hit by $300; the Major resets at $7,000 and must hit by $8,000.

At the top dollar level, the Minor resets at $350 and must hit by $500; the Major resets at $9,000 and must hit by $10,000.

The top Grand progressive, hit with three blue and gold logo symbols on the fifth through ninth paylines, is a straight line progressive resetting at $50,000.
