The King Cashalot symbol is the games wild and it comes in handy when trying to make great winning combinations. The wild symbol will substitute any other symbol other than the games scatter symbol to make winning combinations quicker and more easily.
There are essentially two scatter symbols in King Cashalot, the Jester symbol and the dragon symbol. Getting two or more jester symbols on a spin anywhere across the reels will reward you with a cash prize, while getting three or more dragon symbols anywhere across the reels will trigger the games bonus round.
The bonus round in King Cashalot is automatically triggered when three or more dragon symbols appear across any of the 5 reels. It is important to keep in mind that progressive jackpot slot games are best played at max bet all the time, as this will give you the biggest wins.
In the bonus round all that you need to do is pick a treasure chest to reveal the bonus amount of money that you have won. This is where betting max really comes in as the game will then calculate a multiplier for your total based on the number of coins and paylines wagered.
Graphics and Sounds
King Cashalot is set in medieval times and is centred on a royal banquet. The graphics are simple and cartoon-like, making this progressive light-hearted and fun to play from a visual point of view. The cartoon-like characters include the king, his queen, a jester and a number of delicious-looking banquet delicacies. The sounds are also very cheerful and offer a medieval musical background with loud trumpets heralding winning combinations.
While King Cashalot may be one of Microgaming’s oldest progressive jackpots, it still offers a high volatility platform that has paid out millions throughout its history. The games minimum jackpot total is $100,000 but most often pays out well in excess of $500,000.
One of the biggest recorded progressive jackpot wins recorded on this game was in 2012 when a lucky spinner won an estimated $1.5 million in a single spin.
Of course to win the big jackpot payday, you will have to be at max bet with max coins and paylines with the hopes of landing 5 King Cashalot symbols across the ninth payline.
