Cold Cash from Booming Games: Slot Review - a game full of icy goodness!
Cold Cash is the latest release from renowned software developer Booming Games. Get ready to take a trip to the Arctic tundra where a cute little Inuit invites you to stay in his cosy little igloo as you seek out some cold hard cash in a snowy and cold environment. Be warned though as there are Wild Salmon (and yes we do mean “Wild”!), Bears, Owls and Wolves around every corner. Don’t worry as they appear to be too cute and fluffy that they would not hurt a fly, or would they?
It is a 5 reel slot game with 20 paylines that includes Free Spins, a Wild Reel, and a Gamble mode.
The first thing to highlight about this game is that it features a Wild Reel on reel 4. What this means is that all of the symbols on reel 4 will always be Wild symbols except for the odd Scatter symbol showing up every now and then. This reel provides great opportunities for some massive payouts if you land the right symbols of course.
The Wild symbol is illustrated by a smiling pink salmon. it substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Scatter symbol. It is also the highest paying symbol in the game and if you are lucky enough to land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you will win the jackpot which is a maximum of 50,000 coins!
The Scatter symbol is represented by a cute little wolf and if you land 3 or more of the symbols anywhere on the reels then you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Here you will be given 10 Free Spins and if you land 3 more Scatters while in this feature, then you will be awarded another 10 Free Spins.
The last feature to discuss is the Gamble mode. This is triggered whenever you land a win in the game. When activated, you’ll be taken to a new screen where you get to play a Double-Or-Nothing round. The game is simple, all you have to do is pick the correct symbol from two options, if you choose correctly then your win will be doubled. However, a word of warning as if you choose the wrong symbol then you will lose all your current winnings and be taken back to the main game. It is possible to gamble up to 10 times in a row or until your winnings total 10,000 when in this feature.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The presentation of the game is absolutely superb as the slot is filled with beautiful 3D rendered graphics and effects. The background of the game is an ice cold mountain top with snow covering the skyline. Symbols are wonderfully detailed and full of colour. They consist of an Inuit, an Igloo, an Owl, a Salmon, a Bear, and a cute little Wolf. The animations are worth highlighting too as symbols burst into life and enlarge and move about whenever you land a win along the reels.
The music is fantastic as it features a sweeping score that is bouncy and has a real upbeat feel to it. It complements the theme of the game really nicely.

Our Verdict on Cold Cash
Cold Cash is produced by Booming Games and it's an extremely fun slot to play. It has a very cute presentation, an interesting theme and the game is very easy to play but once you start to spin the reels, it is really difficult to stop! The slot has some nice features and it is brilliant that you can retrigger Free Spins and that there is a Wild Reel which greatly increases your chances of a landing a decent enough payout. I found this slot to be of Low variance so you won’t be waiting too long before you land a win across the reels.
Land an ice-cold win in Cold Cash!
