Like most slot games in the Ainsworth catalogue, the design in Kanga Cash is basic. Set against a dusty scrubland backdrop, you’ll see A to 10 royals, a fan, a lizard and a dingo. The big bird is the best standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in a line for a payout of 12.5, 20 or 50 times your stake. The kangaroo is the wild. This appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 only and substitutes for all the standard symbols. Kanga Cash comes with 3 features.
Kanga Cash feature - land a winning combination that includes a wild kangaroo symbol to trigger this round. You’ll then receive 5 free spins (10 or 15 free spins if the winning combination included 2 or 3 wilds).
Joining the action here is the special sunset symbol. Every time this symbol lands during the free spins, it awards an instant win equal to the amount you won on the triggering spin. You can also win Minor or Major Jackpot prizes during the Kanga Cash feature.
Spin and Hold feature - to trigger the second feature, you’ll need to land 6 or more sunset symbols on the same spin. These symbols are then held and you’ll be awarded 3 respins. If a new sunset symbol lands, it too is held and the respins reset to 3.
The more sunset symbols in the cluster, the bigger the rewards. Payouts start at 5 times your total stake for 6 or 7 sunsets but can reach 45 times your stake if you land 14 of them. Fill all 15 positions with sunsets and you’ll scoop the Grand Jackpot prize which is worth £30,000.
There’s nothing flashy about the design of Kanga Cash. The features are better than we’ve found in many slot games from this developer though. The spin and hold and the free spins rounds both offer some decent potential. That’s certainly the case if you trigger the free spins with a decent win and then get lucky with the repeat wins.
Kanga Cash is as hot as the Aussie midday sun too. The variance here is very high. It’s not a classic by any means but Kanga Cash is playable enough, especially for an Ainsworth slot game. If you want an Aussie adventure, Jackaroo Jack by Lightning Box Games would be my choice.
