Aristocrat's Cash Catapult

November 22, 2011 3:00 AM by

I am always on the lookout for new, different games. Last week I spotted a new reel power from Aristocrat - Cash Catapult. What really caught my eye with this 5 reel slot was that during the bonus games it could expand up to 8 reels.

After sitting down to play I discovered an additional exciting feature on this slot. There are three scatter symbols – a queen, the knight and the catapult.

The screen appears with five reels and a castle tower on the right side of the screen with two more towers peeking out just behind the first tower.

As the catapults appear on the screen they turn towards the towers. Three or more of the catapult symbol triggers free bonus games. The catapults each fire a stone at the tower, knocking it down and revealing a sixth reel and awarding seven free games. While six reels are in play, three or more catapults unlock a seventh reel and seven more free games are awarded. Three or more catapults while seven reels are in play unlock an eighth reel and seven more free games won. If you get three or more catapults while eight reels are in play, an additional two free games are awarded.

I put in $20 and began to play at 1x (30¢) I only played a short time and had already gotten three knights twice to stand at $23.40 when I got the three catapults. During the seven free spins with six reels I received the queen scatters twice and the knight scatter once for a profit of $5.60.

The game was going well so I upped my bet to 2x (60¢) and continued to play. I got the three catapults again and started the seven free spins with six reels. After three spins I got the catapults again and went to seven reels with an additional seven spins. Another four spins and I got the catapults that revealed a reel eight.

The game produced another 3 times – once with four catapults for six additional spins at total of 27 free spins.

My highest pay was for five knight scatter but I got lots of three scatters and a couple of four scatters. I won $48.70 and cashed out with $52.
