Travel to three European capitals with your graffiti cans in the luggage on the slot from Play’n GO and be ready to show your artistic talent on a 4×3 reel set. Hit the golden spray can on reel four to trigger respins, three city features and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 500 times your bet in a single spin and up to 5,000 times your bet in the free spins.
Cash Vandal is a video slot with four reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. You can go on your international graffiti tour on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits. The RTP of this medium to high variance game is set at 96.47%, pretty much the norm for Pla’n GO slots. You can use Autoplay to set up 10 to 100 consecutive spins without interruption and Quickspin to spin the reels at double the default speed
Graphics and Visuals
The game window is fittingly serving as a graffiti canvas on Cash Vanda. The background are changing graffiti walls while city landmarks are passing by on top of the game window, based on which city has been used last in the bonus features. Play’n GO created some stunning animations when the golden spray can comes into play. A jazzy soundtrack is giving the gameplay a relaxed atmosphere.
Expecting all things about graffiti, we were surprised to find actually symbols from your usual fruit slot on the reels. At the low end, they are cherries, blueberries, raspberries, melons and oranges. Pays look rather low with 1x to 1.2x your bet for a single four of a kind. It will slightly improve with the premium symbols – cash bundles, bars and diamonds – awarding wins from 2.5x to 10x your stake. An artistic wild tile is the top-paying symbol with 50x the bet for a single four of a kind and substituting for all symbols except scatters. Those are red spray cans on reels one to three and a golden spray can on reel four.
There is one twist on every spin in the base game and free spins. The game will select one random pay symbol, including the wild, at the start of a new spin to be super stacked up to eight symbols high on all reels. This significantly increases the chance to hit a full screen of matching symbols. Having all reels with wild symbols pays the maximum win in one spin of 500 times your stake.
The Golden Spray Can Features
It is all about hitting the golden spray can on reel four on Cash Vandal as it is the key to trigger the bonus features based on what lands on the other three reels.
- Golden Spray Can scatter on reel four, no other scatters: Awards one respin with reel four held for another chance to hit scatters on the first 3 reels
- Golden Spray Can scatter on reel four and one red spray can scatter anywhere on the other reels: Awards one free spin with reel four as a stacked wild and one of three reel modifiers called ‘city features’ randomly selected for the spin.
- Golden Spray Can scatter on reel four and two or three red spray can scatters: Awards 5 and 10 free spins respectively. You can choose one ‘city feature’ to be active on every free spin throughout the bonus round.
Doesn’t read like much so far, to be honest, and most probably won’t have players very excited. However, the three ‘city features’ can make quite a difference and turn a small or no win into a mega win. These are reel modifiers where the golden can will transform specific symbol patterns into wild symbols or synchronize entire reels. In the re-spin feature, the game selects randomly one of the three ‘city features’ while in the free spins round, players can select their preferred option. All features and free spins are played with reel four as sticky stacked wild.
- Paris: Reel one and two are synchronized on every free spin and contain only 2×2 mega symbols
- London: Up to nine symbols are painted into mystery symbols, revealing a matching pay symbol.
- Berlin: Two or three random wilds are added to reel one to three.
Cash Vandal will let you be Bansky-like for a slotting session, so get into a creative mood before you start spinning the reels. The game is overall fun to play and has plenty of action as only one scatter on reel four will award already a feature. But I have serious doubts about the maximum win potential of 5,000 times the stake. The achieve that feat, you will need to hit a full screen of wild symbols on all 10 free spins within one bonus round. I suppose mankind landing on Mars within the next decade is more likely to happen than having 10 spins in a row a full screen of wilds. Wins in the region of 500x to 1,500x seem though achievable.
