Speed Cash, which is a video slot game from Play’n GO, appeared in early 2015. The game’s tagline, “slot machine low”, means it is suitable for low limit slot players. Although Play’n Go developed another Cash-branded slot game called Cats and Cash, Speed Cash’s interface is relatively more similar to the provider’s other game named Lucky Diamonds.
The drag racing theme, especially the speeding sports car sound effect, which is heard when spinning, inspired the name “Speed Cash”. The player’s target is getting at least one red sports car on the pay line, two or three red sports cars, or three symbols consisting of either three-of-a-kind or a mixture of the rest of the symbols.
Speed It Up
Speed Cash, which is notable for its high volatility and has a 3X2 grid, is modeled on car racing. The four types of Speed Cash symbols—they can be used in seven different ways—are: a red GT racing car (also brand logo), a bar of gold, a stack of silver coins, and a wad of bank notes.
After loading on a casino operator’s website, players first know about Speed Cash’s progressive jackpot and how the red GT racing car acts as a Wild/substitute. The large “Continue” icon at the bottom of the starting page leads players to a simple interface, where they only set the coins (one, two, and three coins). The relatively bigger green icon at the bottom right is for “start” and the smaller neighboring icon is for setting 20, 50, 100, 250 and 500 optional automated rounds. Speed Cash has $0.25 as the minimum bet and only nonadjustable coin value, and a $0.75 maximum bet.
These are Speed Cash payouts for one coin, two coins, and three coins, respectively. A red GT car offers 2, 4, and 6, while two red GT cars offer 6, 12, and 18. A combination of a stack of silver coins, a wad of notes, and a bar of gold does offer 6, 12, and 18. Three stacks of silver coins have 15, 30, and 45. Three wads of bank notes have 40, 80, and 120. Three bars of gold offer 200, 400, and 600. Three red GT cars give 800 and 1600 for one coin and two coins, respectively.
Speed Cash players must bet the maximum to qualify for the progressive jackpot, which is triggered by three red GT cars on the third coin. The so-called progressive jackpot is seemingly capped at 10,000, according to Play’n GO’s webpage about Speed Cash.
The simplicity of Speed Cash interface is extreme because some menu-driven options—such as the user guide—do not work, making the software seem like a work in progress. The interesting sounds range from a revving engine sound effect to the classic slot sounds. The eye-catching Speed Cash graphics include an rpm gauge, checkered flags, and the Christmas tree synonymous with drag racing.
Luck in Speed Cash
The return to player rate of Speed Cash is 94.12%, while the house edge is 5.88%. The game has a medium variance, but luck matters a lot. It is wise to use all three coins so that the jackpot does not pass players by.
