Cash Crew

Cash is still king according to Hacksaw Gaming! The developer is going back to its roots with Cash Crew, a dark and serious slot with a crime/heist theme. The game is centered around a cash symbol with a collect mechanism, which can result in some serious wins. On that note, the max cashout per spin is capped at 10,000x the bet.

Introduction – Cash Crew

Developer Hacksaw Gaming has been providing a steady flow of quality games for several years now, since they decided to turn their scratch cards into more conventional slots.

Their titles are often gloomy and melancholy, touching upon the darker sides of humanity and society – much like their competitors Nolimit City. Cash Crew is their newest slot to date, having launched on April 4, 2024.

The game is fronted by two masked characters, seemingly up to no good. The design is simple, yet smooth and effective. There’s no doubt where the story goes in this one! For the gamblers out there, Cash Crew offers several options for buying different bonus features, from 10x up to 600x your bet.

Layout, payouts, and other info

Cash Crew is played over 5 reels and 5 rows, which has become a bit of a Hacksaw staple by now. The square grid contains 19 paylines, all of which starts at reel 1 to the left and continues on to the right.

Volatility is high, but maybe not as high as you would expect. The developer has given it a 4/5 rating, meaning there are more brutal options available out there.

Bets ranges from €0,1 to €100 per spin, and in addition you also have the several different bonus buy options – we’ll take a closer look at those below.

Wins are generated by landing three or more of the same symbols on a payline, where the masked robbers are the most valuable. There are four of them, with the red robber paying out the most at 10x your stake for five in a row. There’s also a fifth character, in green and with shades, acting as the wild symbol.

The standard RTP reads 96,26% although there are versions of the game with lower rates. You shouldn’t run into anything else than the standard version at any serious casinos, however. Max win is 10,000x your bet, which can be achieved in the bonus round.

Cash Crew slot features

Most of the gameplay in Cash Crew is centered around the cash symbols, which are present in both the main game and the bonus round. The slot is also heavy on multipliers, and comes with two versions of free spins.

Multipliers and Cash symbols

When playing, wild multiplier symbols and cash symbols will show up from time to time. Cash symbols can be highly valuable, and are collected when Grab’em symbols lands at the same time.

Cash symbols carries a base value of 1x to 500x but can be multiplied by the wilds. This in turn makes it possible to get your hands on some significantly improved wins. 

The Vault

The Vault is Cash Crew’s regular bonus round, which is triggered by landing three scatters in the main game. You’ll start with 6 Vault Spins but can acquire more by landing a special symbol.

More cash and multiplier symbols are added during the bonus round, and they also come with higher values. In addition to that, multiplier symbols turn sticky (but not in the traditional way) and will remain for the rest of the bonus. Lastly, a special Stopwatch symbol will grant you 1-6 extra spins.

The High-Security Vault

If you manage to get your hands on four scatters, you’ll get access to the extra special High-Security Vault. As the name suggests, this is obviously where the most valuable stuff is kept!

In this mode you start with 9 free spins, and all Cash symbols have a minimum multiplier of 5x.

Bonus Buys

One interesting feature of Hacksaw Gaming slots are their Feature Buy section, where you can buy four different bonus features. The regular bonus round will cost you 100x your bet, but there are also both cheaper and more expensive options:

  •  BonusHunt FeatureSpins: For 5x your bet you are 10 times more likely to trigger a bonus game.
  • Cash is King FeatureSpins: For 75x your bet each spin guarantees at least 5 Cash symbols, 1 multiplier, and 1 Grab’em symbol.
  • The Vault: The regular bonus game goes for 100x.
  • The High-Security Vault: The improved bonus game will cost you 300x you stake.

Conclusion and verdict

Cash Crew is a typical Hacksaw Gaming slot, drawing on a dark and serious note to create a cool game for the grown-ups. This one does somewhat stand out however, as the collect mechanic reminds us more of Pragmatic Play’s Big Bass Bonanza than any of their own slots.

The game’s Multiplier symbols play a crucial role, especially when they interact with Cash symbols, multiplying rather than adding their values. This mechanism allows for potential significant wins, emphasizing that the game’s maximum payout of 10,000x the bet is attainable across all modes.

Naturally, you will be most likely to hit the jackpot during the High-Security Vault round, which is also the most difficult to activate. If you don’t want to wait and have the bankroll for it, the Feature Buy option is always available – costing up to 300x for the bonus with the most potential.
