This is a Megaways remake of the 2017 Captain Cashfall. You will see the eccentric fisherman again and win from randomly triggered modifiers. There are free spins with unlimited multipliers and collectable bonus games. The treasure chest prizes result in additional wins during free spins.
Storm Gaming plans to release the game for the 17th of April 2020. It is full of extras and features that ensure entertaining gameplay. The top payout is £250,000 and the main features are similar to these of the hilarious original.
The game has 6 reels and from 2 to 7 rows per reel. On reels 1 and 6 can land between 2 and 7 symbols. On reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 can appear from 2 to 7 symbols. Using the Megaways system, the slot offers varying win ways in the range of 324 to 117,649. There is an extra horizontal reel on top of the middle vertical ones with 4 symbols over reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
You can play with wagers from 0.20 to 100 credits. Captain Cashfall Megaways has medium to high volatility and an RTP of 96.13%. The features in it include the Mine Sweeper. It replaces low-paying with premium symbols. There are Mystery Symbols, 3 extra mini-games with cash wins and multipliers. The free spins you will play with an unlimited increasing multiplier. They also have special treasure chest symbols that reveal cash prizes. The top payout in the game is 10,000 times your stake, but it is capped at £250,000.
The design of the slot is not very different from the original game. The background is made of the same planks of a sailing ship. On the left of the grid, you will see a pile of gold coins. The grid is set underwater and you will see the bottom of the ocean as a background around the symbols.
There are 3 trails for the bonus features on the right of the screen. The soundtrack is strange and keeps the action alive. The symbols include thickly framed card royals, blue fish, the captain, helms and several others. The graphics are nice but not very detailed or exceptional.
To win in the game you need to match 2 to 6 symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. The winning symbols disappear from the grid and trigger a cascade and a chain reaction. New symbols will pop from above to fill the free spaces. The spin sequence goes on as long as there are new wins.
The symbols include low-paying card royals and 3 premiums. The cards from 10 through to A award from 0.8 to 2 times your bet for 5 of a kind combinations. The premiums are a ship’s wheel, a blue fish and a Capt’n tuna can. Their payouts are 4 times your stake for 6 of a kind on successive reels. When any of the 3 premium symbols appear with golden frames, they have a dual function. These act as paying symbols and scatters at the same time, which light up and fill the corresponding trail.
The most profusely paying symbol is Captain Cashfall. Getting 6 of it in a paying combination gives you 40 times your stake. Mrs Cashfall is the wild and it appears on the top horizontal reel only. As expected, it substitutes for all regular missing symbols. The captain’s dog is marked with the word ‘Free Spins’ and is the scatter. It can land on the main grid only. There is a mystery symbol and it is the ship’s anchor.
Like the original slot, Captain Cashfall Megaways is packed of extra features. First of them is the Mine Sweeper, which can appear at random on any spin. When this happens, all card symbols on the screen will be removed for the duration of the spin. Their places will take premium symbols. This gives you great chances to pocket big wins. The cascades are in play as are in all stages of the gameplay.
During the base game and free spins, you can land the Mystery symbol, which happens by chance at the end of any spin. When a random number of them land on the screen, they reveal a common symbol also selected by chance. It can be any except for the wild or scatter.
Every time you land the helm, tuna can or blue fish with golden frames, they will be added to their respective trail on the right of the screen. When you fill any of the meters, the respective feature will get triggered. You can change your bet and this won’t affect your progress towards the trails, as they are not bet sensitive. The features they trigger are these:
Landing 4 scatters on the reels within one spin sequence triggers 10 Free Spins. Each extra scatter apart from the 4 ones gives you 5 more free spins. These rounds start with an x1 win multiplier. It increases by x1 after a winning reaction without limits. During free spins, a crab plays the role of the scatter and it lands on the top horizontal reel only. Hitting 3 or 4 crab scatters give you 5 or 10 extra free spins respectively.
You will have treasure chest symbols added to the main reels in free spins. If you get 3 of them in a spin sequence, they will move to the front and let you pick one of them. The treasure chests will reveal an extra cash prize. It will be added to the total of your winnings in the bonus game.
Captain Cashfall Megaways is an improved version of the fun slot with the marine theme from 2017. As of March 2020, you can play it exclusively at William Hill and several other UK bookmakers including Bwin and Party Casino.
