You may not see so many newspapers being delivered these days, but in Extra Cash, you will be grateful to see the newspapers flying around.
This video slot from NextGen, albeit a dated theme, has a fun and retro feel. It is energetic with jazz-themed background music. The reels are laid out on the backdrop of an old-fashioned residential street in New York where the newspapers will need delivering. The Paperboy is stood on the left and stares in awe at the reels as the game unfolds.
Extra Cash is a traditional five-reel slot with 50 paylines, and with a few lucky spins, you can land some very helpful special features.
How to Play
Adjust your bet level and coin value before you begin playing. The squashed ‘Z’ symbol is your bet level which can be adjusted between 1 and 50. This is representative of your bet lines, so 50 means that all paylines are in play, whereas moving it to 1 will mean you’re just playing one payline. The four piled up coins are your coin value, which can be changed between 1p and £1.
The lower-value icons are the typical card symbols, A, K, Q, J and 10. Matching three or more of these will award you between 5 and up to 150 times your line bet for a full five-of-a-kind match.
The highest paying icon in the game is the newspaper van. You can match between 2 and 5 of the vans on a payline, which will pay out up to 400 times your bet line.
The dog carrying the newspaper in his mouth could win you up to 300 times your bet if you land five dogs on a payline. You will be awarded for matching a minimum of two dog symbols.
You can win between 25 and 250 times your bet for matching up to 5 of the newspaper kiosks on a payline.
The little red cart and the stack of newspapers both have the same value. Match three-of-a-kind to win 20 times your bet, and a five-symbol match will pay out 200 times.
An Extra Symbol to Look For
Extra! Extra! This symbol has hit the headlines! The Wild symbol on the newspaper can substitute for all symbols in standard gameplay. If you’re in need of one more symbol to make your perfect payline, the Wild may be the missing piece that you need.
The Wilds are also valuable as they are. If you can match between two and five across a payline, you will be awarded up to five hundred times your bet amount! Perhaps the most valuable newspapers you will ever come across!
Are there any special features?
Extra Wild feature
During the base game, the paperboy may fling an extra Wild newspaper onto any of the middle reels. He likes to throw those newspapers round so you may as well benefit from it!
On reels 2, 3, and 4, you may see some scatter icons, which are the newspaper printing press, land. Any reels with the scatter icons on are held still while the other reels spin, in an effort to land more matching symbols and make those all-important winning paylines!
Landing three or more scatter symbols during a re-spin can award you free spins! Three scatters gives you 8 spins, four gives you 12, and five gives you a fantastic 20 free spins! What’s more, any Wilds which are thrown onto your reels during the free spins will stay there, so you could end up with a lot of Wilds helping you out with your winning paylines.
The final feature is the gamble. Any win can be gambled by clicking on the hearts/clubs button under the reels. If you correctly guess wither the colour of the suit, you could double or quadruple your win. But be careful, don’t risk your winnings too often, be sensible.
An Extra-Special Game?
This is a great game, with a theme not often used, so it brings some originality to the releases from Next Gen. We love the 3D visuals and the dog is very cute! The selection of bonus features is fantastic, making for a thoroughly enjoyable game, but please be aware of the gamble feature. You don’t want to keep losing all of your winnings.
