Mr. Cashback slot provided by Playtech offers players a very distinct style with a rather unique feature mechanic. Definitely taking inspiration from old timey businessmen and high rollers of the 1980s, the slot consists of up to 15 paylines in a traditional 3 by 5 reel format. Founded in 1999, Playtech is a storied developer based in the Isle of Man with a lot of experience and their games are widely available across many of the top name online casinos.
Offering players with a simple and easy to navigate user interface, Playtech provides everything upfront and directly within the game window. The number of pay lines you wish to play with, along with the bet per line is customisable via plus and minus icons for each option respectively. Autoplay is also available with some preset options, alongside a Turbo Mode that speeds up the game’s animations. The ‘Info’ icon provides players with access to the complete rules and pay tables. While a full screen mode is also available, it seems that there is a distinct lack of other options found in most slot games, such as volume controls for instance.
This is a design that definitely brings home the cheese with its overall style. The graphics are very cartoony and the animations have a rather silly quality to them. The colours and buttons are also very garish, which is further exacerbated by the music and sound effects. The usual traditional game symbols are on display with a balloon-like presentation to them. Wilds are represented by Mr. Cashback himself, while Scatter symbols appear as the slot’s logo. There are also piggy bank symbols, along with various cash and swag symbols on display. Landing on 3 or more scatter symbols in any combination provides players with 12 free spin rounds. Overall the slot has a very specific presentation that some may find quaint, although could also be off putting to others.
With every spin of the reels you make, there’s a trigger for some fast paced wheeling and dealing background music that is instantly recognisable from a wide variety of TV shows and films. It brings quite some joy to hitting the reels and wanting to hear the end of the musical sting. The sounds effects of hitting a winning combination have a game show feel to them that is rather fitting to the rest of the game, however the highlight in the sound department is definitely the music that appears each time you click on that spin button.
The main feature of this slot game is the self titled Mr. Cashback feature that aims to give back to players unfortunate enough to come across a losing streak. This mechanic provides a 50 times payback on your staked, should you not win from a single payline during the course of 50 consecutive spins. The staked amount you get a 50 times return on is the amount you bet on for that 50th round. While certainly a very unique feature, it is highly unlikely that most players will ever get to witness it, as the chances of not winning on a single round for 50 spins is incredibly low. Other features that can be found are a 2 times win multiplier during free spin rounds, along with random freezing Wilds during the feature.
Definitely a slot that is difficult to recommend to all. Many may find that either or both the theme and the gameplay features are simply not to their tastes. The garish and highly stylised aesthetics of the game is simply something that won’t appeal to many, while the main selling point of the game being the Mr. Cashback Feature may not appear as all that enticing to new and veteran slot players alike. Building up a game mechanic based around a large amount of consecutive losses just doesn’t really appear fun and exciting. If you do like the quaint design of this game and are only interested in the free spin round mechanics however, then by all means give it a try.
