Mission Cash is a high variance slot from Play’n GO.
1960s spy nostalgia
Play’n GO dials back the clock to the 1960s in a spy-themed high volatility slot, in this late summer 2019 release. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to spin the reels for the chance to collect up to the max of 5,000x bet! Players may have forgotten, but the 1960s was an excellent decade for spy thrillers. Who could forget the James Bond (Sean Connery) films Dr No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger or Thunderball? There were dozens of great movies from this genre inspired by the cold war! There was even the man from U.N.C.L.E. which was an American television series based on spies.
Mission Cash: Welcome to London
As mentioned, Mission Cash is based on a spy theme and features four characters as the higher-end symbols. Looking closely at the background, we even see London’s Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the Thames River. A James Bond-like character is the top paying, and two females follow closely. Finally, who could forget the research and development character of the British Secret Service ‘Q’?
Collectively they are known as Agents Blue, Red, Purple and Green. Four playing card suits make up the lower-end symbols. The game uses cartoonlike artwork, and the music teleports us to the 1960s. The 5-reels and 20 paylines slot has an RTP of 96.65%, and we can typically vary the wagers from £0.20 to £100. Remember that this is a high volatility slot so we will likely need to play with a higher bankroll if we want to play for longer. The game has been optimised for play on desktop, Android and iOS devices. Remember that players will need a good Wi-Fi connection to avoid lag and dropped games.
The slot has an RTP of 96.65%.
Take The Shot Re-spins
On each spin, we’ll see a moving crosshair landing on a random space on the reels. This is part of the ‘Take The Shot Re-spins feature. If the crosshair lands on Agent Blue or Agent Red, then the symbols expand to cover the entire reel and transform into sticky wilds for a free re-spin of the other reels. The re-spin can be re-triggered if the crosshair lands on another Agent Blue or Agent Red symbol.
Wilds can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. They can also form their own winning paylines and pay anywhere from 1.5x to 50x total bet per payline.
The game includes Take the Shot Re-spins feature and extra spins.
A gun symbol acts as a scatter and can be used to trigger 8 extra spins if the crosshair happens to land on one. In the extra spins, the ‘Take the Shot Re-spins feature’ can be triggered by all four Agents. Extra spins can be re-triggered for 8 more.
High volatility slots
Although Mission Cash is a high volatility slot that I recommend, it is not in my personal ranking of the best high volatility slots.
Mission Cash opinion: Appealing to high variance and 1960s spy-themed fans
Mission Cash is designed to appeal to fans who enjoy high volatility slots with a 1960s spy classic genre. The delivery in the way of the artwork, soundtrack and features make this a pretty well-rounded game. The game is simple to understand, and the ‘Take the Shot Re-spins’ often triggers so we won’t be waiting too long. Extra spins can and do take longer, which is to be expected but represents the best chance of more significant payouts although they can be hit and miss. The payout potential exists, but the best I managed was about 90x bet on a few hundred spins. Still, this is an entertaining slot, and I would recommend giving it a look.
