About This Slot

Cash Elevator is an imaginatively designed game incorporating an old-fashioned elevator with concertina metal doors. Crows and suspenseful music create a creepy atmosphere, as though we’re exploring somewhere with a dark history. It looks stylish with the Art Deco design with symbols including old-fashioned suitcases, a dial telephone, pocket watch and vintage motorcar.

There are 12 floors and a basement in this building. The idea is that the higher up you travel in the elevator, the fewer symbols appear on the reels, resulting in only the highest paying symbol at the top level. The other features help to boost your payouts, all under the watchful eyes of the crows.

RTP, Variance and Top Payout

The RTP is 96.64%, which is slightly above average, while the volatile nature of the game means players can expect a nerve-wracking ride. This elevator will creak its way towards the top payout of 5,100x stake if you’re lucky with the special features, but it’s definitely not going to be a smooth ride to the top!

The minimum bet of 20p is reasonable and most players should be able to enjoy a spin here, although it’s more suited to higher rollers due to the risky gameplay.

Symbols and Graphics

Cash Elevator is packed with symbols from the romantic old days, such as leather box suitcases, shiny black dial telephones, a gold pocket watch and vintage motorcar. There is also a gold key, a cat sat in front of a full moon and an imposing mansion.

The best-paying symbol is the mansion, which awards 50x stake for 5 of kind. The cat awards up to 30x stake and the pocket watch 25x stake. The other images award up to 5x stake, while the high cards pay the lowest rewards.

Other symbols include the ‘Up’ and ‘Down’ arrow symbols on reel 3. There are also 2 characters, a man and a woman, who act as Wilds and can launch the Dead Lovers Free Spins feature.

What We Don't Like

Gameplay and Features

Cash Elevator Feature

The game begins on the first floor. Every time you land a win, the elevator moves up one floor and the lowest paying symbol is removed from the reels. This continues until you’re left with only the highest-paying symbol on the top floor.

When you land an ‘Up’ arrow symbol on reel 3, the elevator rises by 1, 2, 3 or 12 floors. When you land a ‘Down’ arrow symbol, it descends by 1, 2 or 3 floors.

Dead Lovers Free Spins

If an expanded Wild appears on reel 2 or 4, the Free Spins round begins, awarding from 6 to 12 Free Spins. If the round is triggered by 2 Wilds, you receive 12 to 24 Free Spins. This round is played with Expanded Wilds on reels 1 and 5. The Wilds move inwards on every win until they meet in the middle and award 5 more Free Spins. This movement can repeat for more re-triggers.

Hold and Spin Feature

When you land on floor 13, the Hold and Win feature begins. Before the feature starts, pick one of 3 crows to reveal the number of money symbols that appear. This feature awards 4 re-triggerable Respins with cash prizes and up to 10x Multipliers.

Our Verdict

Cash Elevator is a refreshingly original slot in terms of design. The gameplay throughout revolves around the different floors of the mansion and their related potential payouts. We love the atmosphere with the haunted mansion with its crows, the romance of the old-fashioned cars and pocket watches, and the subtly menacing sound track. Although the volatility will be off-putting to low rollers, it’s enjoyable for a few spins for the theme alone. The levelling up on each floor of the building creates a feeling of newness on every spin. The payouts in the base game are potentially good but you’ll be looking for re-triggers during Dead Lovers Free Spins for the biggest rewards. If you love Art Deco and darkly mysterious atmospheres, you’ll have a blast in the Cash Elevator.
