The Cash Cave slot game is made by by Ainsworth Gaming, who are getting their games into just about every casino in the US over the past year or two, including big Las Vegas casinos like the MGM Grand and Caesars Palace. This particular slot machine is probably the most commonly seen Ainsworth game, along with Rumble Rumble.
Cash Cave is a slot machine developed by Ainsworth Gaming that features 5 reels (a 5x3 slot) and 100 pay-lines. It is based on money and luxuries with dollar signs, gold bars, stashes of cash, dice and gemstones appearing on the reels and awarding high-value awards.
This game is bright and vibrant and full of nice touches - one particularly cute feature is the bear that throws the cash in the air upon hitting a decent win. During the bonus, that same bear will help you out with multiplers - he is a good bear!
The slot machine benefits from substitutes, free spins and the Cash Cave feature with multipliers increasing your winnings by up to 8x. The bear acts as Wild which appears on the reels 3, 4 and 5 during regular play while Scatter is depicted as the logo of the game and triggers the free spins feature.
By landing 3 or more Scatter anywhere on the reels, you will win 10 free spins during which Bear Wild lands on all the reels except for the first one. Whenever Bear Wild is included in a winning combo, your winnings will be subject to a multiplier between 2x and 8x, which depends on the symbols creating a win and a free spin it occurs on. Land 3 or more Cash Cave Scatters and you will trigger 5 Cash Cave free spins during which the same rules apply.
The top paying regular symbol is the dollar sign awarding 200 coins for a five of a kind combination, while five Scatters award 100x your total bet. The maximum possible win in the base game stands at 20,000 coins while during free spins and Cash Cave free games, you can win up to 160,000 coins in a single spin.
Bonus round - free spins
When you hit the bonus round in Cash Cave slots, you are immediately greeted with a very reassuring bell sound. A classic 'you've hit the bonus' bell that already starts to get the excitement going, which is a good start.
As the free spins begin, music starts to play - a kind of funky, jazzy rock anthem, which adds to the feeling that something good is happening.
You will also notice that a lot more bear (wild) symbols appear on all the free spins, increasing you chance of a big win. This is pretty cool and makes it worth the wait which can be quite long.
Another thing you will see during the bonus is what looks like an extra reel appear. It's not an extra reel, but an indicator of the multipler being given to any winning lines with certain symbols. As the spins progress, the multipliers progress from 2x right up to 8x their normal value, so the chance of winning big increases with each spin.
This is the point where getting the extra 5 free spins is massive. Essentially, you get 5 free spins where every single hit is giving you 8x the normal win size. When you factor in the additional wild symbols, you can get some pretty tasty pay-outs on this feature.
As far as Ainsworth slots go, Cash Cave is regarded as one of the better ones. This is probably why it is one of the more commonly seen ones in Vegas

A lot of fuss over nothing
Even though the Cash Cave slot is polished in many ways and can provide some good entertainment, it can get tiring after playing for 10 or 20 minutes. One reason for this is the over-celebration of micro wins.
If you get a win that involves the wild bear, no matter how small, you get a mini celebration where the bear throws cash into the air. This is fun to start with, but once you have seen this celebration for the hundredth time, when all you have won is 15 cents on a dollar spin, it begins to get tiresome.
This is quite a common feature with a lot of the Ainsworth games and is, perhaps, something they could look to improve. I might be wrong, but I just don't see anyone out there in the Vegas casinos truly celebrating small wins of 0.5x total bet. I can understand a bit of a celebration when you get 10x bet, but not 0.5x or less.
