A desert island theme always throws up plenty of options for game operators when it comes to design. Hacksaw Gaming have gone for the traditional look of some palm trees surrounding the game reels, with a catchy little samba jingle to accompany the action.
Upon closer inspection of the paytable we see that the lower value symbols on Cash Compass are made up of the royal card symbols jack through to the ace, where pays between 0.1x and 10x are awarded when winning clusters are formed with them. Premium paying symbols comprise of a map, shield, bottle, parrot and a compass, where the wins can hit up to 1000x with the highest value symbol.
Playing Cash Compass can take place for as little as €0.20 a play, with the highest possible stake on the game reaching €100 a spin. There are a total of 6 stakes that players can choose from that range from €2 down to the minimum bet, this in our opinion gives those of all sized budgets a good chance to enjoy this slot, whilst also playing within their set limit.
CASH COMPASS SLOT BASE GAME
CLUSTERS OF 6 OR MORE SYMBOLS WILL AWARD A WIN ON CASH COMPASS
Those who are not aware of how a cluster pays slot works, we will give you a quick and easy explanation so that you can get to grips with Cash Compass quickly. As there are no set paylines on the game, you only need to connect 6 or more matching symbols adjacently anywhere on the grid, the bigger the cluster, then the more it will pay.
CASH COMPASS - MOVING COMPASS BONUS
5 OR MORE COMPASS SYMBOLS LANDING WILL TRIGGER THE MOVING COMPASS BONUS
Above the reels you will notice that there is compass in place that is also filling in for the letter O. This however is not its only purpose in this slot. When you land 5 or more compasses in view anywhere on the reels, the compass logo will become active. The needle will spin and whichever direction it is pointing in when it stops, all compass symbols will clone and move in that direction.
If you can get a good number of compass symbols close to each other when this triggers, then you can create some huge clusters. As the compass is the top paying symbol on the slot some of these wins be colossal and up to 1000x.
CASH COMPASS FREE SPIN FEATURE
3 SCATTER SYMBOLS IN VIEW ON CASH COMPASS WILL TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN FEATURE
The free spin feature is triggered on Cash Compass when 3 free spin scatter symbols land anywhere in view. When this bonus is awarded you will receive 10 free spins to begin with.
Overall there isn't too much to the bonus round on Cash Compass. But during your free spins the moving compass bonus is always active. So you will only need a minimum of 1 compass symbol for it to trigger and give you the chance to create some bigger clusters.
CASH COMPASS BONUS WHEEL
3 TREASURE CHESTS LANDING IN VIEW WILL TRIGGER THE WHEEL BONUS ON CASH COMPASS
The exciting wheel bonus on Cash Compass is triggered when 3 treasure chest symbols land in any position on the reels. Once active the wheel will appear with 7 winning multiplier positions all with a starting value of x1, and one skull and crossbones symbol.
The wheel will spin and the aim is to land on a multiplier value which will be added up as a running total whilst the bonus plays out. Each time that you land on a multiplier its value will increase for the next spin with the amounts 1x, 10x, 25x, 100x and 250x possible to achieve.
This bonus round will finally come to an end when the arrow rests on the skull and crossbones portion. So building up the multiplier values early on in your spins is key to success.
CASH COMPASS SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Cluster pays slots have certainly had a resurgence in recent times, with BTG's Star Clusters Megaclusters™ giving the niche as a whole a big boost. Whilst Cash Compass has some originality with the moving compass feature, we didn't find it overly exciting during our review, with the bonuses taking a while to appear and not really giving a good account of themselves when they did.
Obviously every bonus can't pay big we know that, but for us there just wasn't that level of excitement from Cash Compass that other grid slots like Jammin Jars can give.
This is just our opinion though, so give it a go for yourself and see how you think it fairs against other slots in the cluster pays genre.
