Get ready for another mining adventure in a dark cave. Your wins will accompany cascading reels and replacement of paying symbols. You can get an unlimited number of wins with a single spin.
Cascading Cave has 20 pay-lines, wilds, scatters, and a Diamond Drop feature with multipliers. You have everything you need to have fun and add some amounts into your bankroll.
Playtech released the video slot at the end of June 2019. You can win during the base game and Diamond Drop mode from the cascades which form. The symbols are specific for the mining theme.
There is a pickaxe, a donkey, a lantern, a happy grey-haired prospector as well as 3 types of gemstones. If you win the extra feature you can even play with 2x, 3x, and 5x multipliers.
The game is set on a standard grid layout of 5 reels and 3 rows offering 20 fixed pay-lines. You can wager from 0.10p to £500 per spin on mobile and desktop devices. There are low-value symbols – 3 kinds of gemstones and specific for the mining ones with higher payouts. There is a wild – the white diamond and a scatter – TNT.
The wild plays an important role during the Diamond Drop Feature. It boosts your play with multipliers of 2x, 3x, and 5x and can give you 2,000 times your bet cash prizes. The latter, enhanced with a 5x multiplier will result in 10,000 times your stake. This is the max win per spin in the Diamond Drop feature. You will benefit from the collapsing reels which are active at all times in the game.
The action takes place in a dark blue-purple cave. The playing matrix is in 5×3 layout with a white diamond over each reel. On its left and right sides, there are wooden planks and a lantern. You will see blue, green, and red gemstones, lanterns, pickaxes, a donkey, and an old smiling man – the digger.
The symbols with special functions are the TNT scatter and the white diamond wild. The symbols slowly drop when spinning but there is a turbo mode available. The music that you will hear besides the sounds of the spinning reels is lingering country-style. The game looks good and ensures an entertaining time. Its return to player is 95.83%.
High wins bring you the grizzled prospector, the donkey, the lantern, and the pickaxe. Low wins give the red, green, and blue gemstones. There are 20 fixed pay-lines and the grid uses the 5 reels on 3 rows layout. The highest paying symbol is the old miner. It returns from 2.5, 10 to 100 times your bet when landing 3, 4, or 5 of it on a win-line. The donkey pays 1, 5, and 50 times your stake for 3, 4, and 5 one a bet-line. The lantern gives you 0.8, 2.5, and 25 times your stake.
The pickaxe pays from 0.50, 1.2 to 12.5 times your stake when you land 3, 4, and 5 on a combination. The red gemstone has a value of 0.3, 1, and 5 times your stake for landing 3, 4, and 5 on a win-line. The green gemstone pays from 0.2, 0.8 and 4 times your stake when you land 3, 4, or 5 on a combination. The lowest payout has the blue gemstone – it pays from 0.1 to 2.5 for scoring 3 to 5 symbols.
The wild symbol is the white diamond and it pays as much as the prospector. It and the grizzled man are the best rewarding symbols. It can stand for any other of the regular symbols except for the scatter. The latter is the 3 sticks of dynamite which can land anywhere on the reels. You need 2 or 3 of them to activate the Diamond Drop Feature.
The feature active during all modes of the game is the Collapsing Reels. Any win you score in the game triggers a collapse. Only the symbols that didn’t take part in the win will remain on the reels. The winning symbols disappear and new ones will take their places from above. The symbols over the paying ones will collapse down. This continues as long as new lucky formations are created. This means that you can get plenty of wins with one single spin. The collapsing reels stop when you fail to score a win.
Look for the sticks of dynamite scatter symbol – 2 or 3 landed on a spin give you the Diamond Drop Feature. Then, above each of the reels, you will see numbers appearing. They show how many multiplier wilds you will have dropping on the reels on which the scatters have landed. Triggering the feature with 2 scatters activates up to 2 reels, 3 scatters – up to 3 reels.
As a result, you will then have all symbols exploding and a new set of symbols landing. If they form a win the reels will contain the multiplier wilds. These can give you enhanced gameplay with payout boosts of multipliers worth 2x, 3x or 5x. You will then have a collapsing reels round. It may trigger new ones to get you more winning combinations. So, 2,000 times your stake wins are possible in this feature per spin. They can be increased with 5x multiplier and grow to 10,000 times your stake wins.
