The Amazing Money Machine is a new slot developed by Wild Streak Gaming and published by Pragmatic Play. The slot motif is reminiscent of the popular steampunk genre and is therefore perfect for every inventor and tinkerer among you.
The game is played on a 5-reel and 3-row layout with 10 available paylines. As the game progresses, however, the playing field can be expanded to up to 5 reels and 5 rows with a maximum of 60 active paylines. The absolute highlight of the gameplay is The Amazing Money Machine feature, where a series of respins can provide handsome winnings. Also keep an eye out for special money symbols that award either cash or other prizes. There are also 4 different jackpot prizes of up to 5000x. However, maximum winnings of even 5100x are possible. The slot volatility is therefore unsurprisingly in the high range, while the payout percentage is set at an above-average 96.42%.
Visually, the slot is of course strongly influenced by the steampunk genre already mentioned, and the somewhat mechanical-sounding soundtrack in the background also fits perfectly with the steampunk motif. The reels themselves feature goggles, ray guns, airships and a male/female engineer, in addition to the standard A through 10 royals. There is also a blue heart wild symbol, which can substitute for any regular symbol for a winning combination, and a clock scatter symbol, which can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Wild Streak Gaming has put together a really solid slot with The Amazing Money Machine. The gameplay may look a bit unusual at first glance, but the various respins can give you decent wins. There’s not much to complain about the math model either, the RTP of 96.42% is well above the industry average, only the win potential of 5100x could have been a bit higher.
Minimum bet: €0.20
Maximum bet: €200
Payout Ratio: 96.42%
Max win: 5100x
The Amazing Money Machine offers us 3 different core features, but the main focus is on the feature of the same name. In addition to the standard symbols, 4 special so-called money symbols can also land on the reels. Once the Money symbol, which is endowed with a fixed monetary value, the Mystery symbols, behind which a random cash prize is hidden, the Wild Money symbol acts as a wild in the base game and reveals a cash prize at the end of the respins. Last but not least, there is the Jackpot Money symbol, which can only appear in respins and contributes to the Jackpot Meter. 3 or more money symbols on the middle reels expand the playing field to 4 or 5 rows and 30 or 60 paylines.
5 or more Money symbols trigger the Money Respin feature. Again, the game is spun on a new 5×3, 5×4 or 5×5 playing field. These new reels are filled with empty spaces or money symbols. The number of respins awarded is equal to the number of Money symbols when the feature is triggered. Each newly appearing Money symbol is sticky and grants us another respin. At the end of the feature, the Mystery and Wild Money symbols are revealed and added to the total. Finally, if we manage to fill the entire playing field with Money symbols, the feature will be retriggered.
The Jackpot Feature can be triggered by either 3 bonus symbols in the base game, 3 jackpot symbols in the respins or an instant jackpot symbol. Here, as a player, you can choose between different coins until 3 of the same jackpots have been uncovered. Mini, Maxi, Major or Grand jackpots of 25x, 50x, 500x or 5000x are possible.
