Bally Technologies are an up and coming developer of online video pokies, and their release Cash Wizard is a brilliant example of what they can offer the avid gamer. Released in 2011, Cash Wizard is a great looking pokie that is based around a very generous mythical character who grants lucrative wishes amongst his players. The makers have ensured the design is well put together: with plenty of high quality graphics and neat sounds effects in conjunctions with fluid looking animations. The magical theme runs right through the reels too, and players are likely to see plenty of shiny gems and mythical potions.
The pokie is very entertaining to play and gives players the feel of a really cash laden game. The game comes in the form of a five reel, 30-line video pokie in which players can bet a maximum of 250 credits per spin. With the magnitude of bonus features on offer, in addition to the betting ranges players can use, there is a stated jackpot of a colossal 1,000,000 coins. Top prizes of this size are few and far between so there is no doubt Cash Wizard will have players flocking to spin it.
Bonus round and Features
Keep an eye out for the first, third, and fifth reels as they contain potion symbols that can trigger the Magic Potions feature. These is a neat pick and win style game in which players must select a range of good or bad potions, so making the right selections can unlock around 100 times the total credits bet.
The Mystery Wheel bonus feature is one we really enjoyed, and is triggered randomly, regardless of stake size. Once initiated, players are greeted by a large wheel, full of lucrative goodies with the eye catching jackpot table next to it. This three tier jackpot table is very inviting indeed, showing players every increasing amounts that can be won during this round: Dragon, Wand and Wizard are the jackpots on offer, increasing respectively. Back to the feature, here players must click the wizard to stop the wheel to reveal the prize on offer: these include cash prizes, free spins and jackpots.
What makes the game so unique is that players have the chance to “buy” the Wizard character in the game to activate the bonus package. For this additional fee, he flies around at random intervals and replaces the symbols on the wheel with wild symbols.
Cash Wizard lives up to his reputation as he provides players with a bundle of sizeable incentives to keep spinning for. We’d like to see more video pokies like this creation from Bally Technologies, exclusive to BGO Vegas.
