King Cashalot 5-Reel Progressive Slot
King Cashalot 5-Reel is a fun online slot from super developer Microgaming. The slot offers a number of special features including a bonus game and a progressive jackpot. Add to that a fixed wager of 0.05 coins, and you end up with a fun and pretty lucrative online slot. This does mean however that the slot lacks a bit on wagering flexibility, but makes up for it in other fields. This slot will appeal to experienced players due not only to its lucrative, ever growing progressive jackpot, but also the featured bonus round that makes it that much more exciting. There are also wilds, scatters and multipliers to be discovered.
The graphics in King Cashalot 5-Reel are by no means either 3D or high definition. They are all very cartoon style, and look like they are straight from a kiddie’s illustration. That being said, they are well detailed and quite fun to look at. The layout to the slot is very simple, with the reels being set against a plain royal purple background and edged with gold at the bottom. The buttons are all also very simple, done in plain colours with nothing really exciting about them at all, but are good for beginners as they are easy to understand.
Medieval Royal Theme
The theme to King Cashalot 5-Reel is one of a medieval royal banquet, in which our king, King Cashalot sits at the head of the table and hopefully gives away some of his gold to you as a player. The symbols in King Cashalot 5-Reel are all theme based, with no deck of cards symbols to be found at this table. Instead you can find things like food. Loads of food.
There are at least four food-based symbols, which does make sense as the slot is set at a banquet. The other symbols are the characters that may attend the banquet, such as Knights, Kings, Princesses and even a dragon.
The King himself is the games highest paying symbol, and five of him in a row will win you the coin jackpot of 15 000 coins. Not only this but he also plays the part of the games wild symbol. This is a very busy King. He is also the key to unlocking the progressive jackpot, as long as you are playing with in the required parameters.
The progressive jackpot starts at a certain point, and carries on climbing until someone wins it, at which point it resets back down to the starting point again. To win it, you have to be playing with the maximum amount of lines and coins per spin. Five kings on the very last payline in a row will ensure that all the money is yours.
Dragon Bonus Round
The dragons that attend our banquet are also the games scatter symbol. Finding three of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus round. This is a pretty basic pick me round, where you will be asked to choose one of four treasure chests, each hiding a bonus amount. This amount will then be multiplied by the number of coins that you initially wagered per line and the number of lines that you elected to lay. In the case of the bonus round, and indeed the whole game, the higher you wager and the more lines you play, the more likely you are to win anything.
