Golden Wisdom Golden Cash Slot Review

Aussie developer Ainsworth invites players on a Chinese adventure in Golden Wisdom Golden Cash. Played using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine, this volatile slot game comes with streak respins as well as a free spins round with 2x wilds. There are also potential jackpot prizes worth up to £30,000 up for grabs. It’s not cheap though with minimum stakes of £1 per spin.

Asian Visuals

Classy design isn’t something we always associate with Ainsworth but they’ve done a decent job with Golden Wisdom Golden Cash. With a tranquil lake at night in the background, the reels are flanked by a pair of bobbing lanterns. On the reels are lower value royals well as a money tree, a fish and turtle. The frog and pig are the best symbols. Land 5 of these in combination for a payout of 8 times your stake. The dragon is the wild. This can hit on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only.

Golden Cash feature

The first feature we’ll look at is the Golden Cash feature which is a streak respin round. It’s triggered by landing 6 or more of the golden peach symbol on the middle 3 reels on the same spin. The peaches, which all come with a cash value of between 1 and 50 times your stake attached, are held and 3 respins are awarded. If a new peach lands, the respins tally reset to 3. Once you’re out of respins, all the attached cash values are added to give you a final prize.

Extra Bonus Golden Cash feature

This upgraded version of the Golden Cash feature can strike at random on any spin. The process is the same. This time though, a giant block of golden peaches fills the middle 3 reels. This is the equivalent of 9 peaches. They all come with a cash value of up to 50 times your stake attached. They also offer a better shot of landing the Grand Jackpot, more of which shortly.

Free Games feature

The Free Games feature is activated by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin. After a payout of 1, 5 or 10 times your stake, you’ll go on to play 8 free spins. The wild dragons on reels 2 and 4 can come with a multiplier attached which doubles the payout. Every time a scatter lands, 1 extra free spin is added to your tally. Payouts here are slightly lower than the equivalent in the base game.

Hit the jackpot

Golden Wisdom Golden Cash offers a chance to land 1 of 4 jackpot prizes. To land the Mini, Minor or Major jackpot, you need to land 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols in the free spins round. The Grand Jackpot, which is worth £30,000, is triggered by landing a full screen of 15 golden peaches in the Golden Cash or Extra Bonus Golden Cash rounds.

Volatile action

There isn’t anything we haven’t already seen in other slot games on offer in Golden Wisdom Golden Cash. It’s all solid enough though, especially from a developer whose games we’ve often found a little disappointing. If you like the Chinese theme and volatile gameplay, then you’ll find both in Golden Wisdom Golden Cash.
