When I saw the name ‘Cashanova’ I’m not quite sure what I expected the theme of the game to be. Could it be some play on the great lover Casanova, well I had to think again. There’s no David Tennant or Frank Finlay if you’re of a certain age. Instead we have chickens, yes you read that correctly, we have chickens.
It’s a bit like those Disney films where all of a sudden Robin Hood becomes a fox, I couldn’t work that one out either.
This is a five reel slot game with 30 paylines for you to try and win some cash on. The game is mainly set in a luxury chicken house and playing the game costs between £0.01 and £75 if pressing the Bet Max button. That’s a wide range so it shouldn’t be a problem for you to be able to find a level that fits in perfectly with your financial budget.
The symbols in this game are all theme-related and there’s no sign of any playing cards here. What we do get are some fairly humourous symbols that fit in with the chicken and romance theme. There’s whipped cream (best not to ask), a bowl of fruit, a copy of ‘Henhouse’ (not under a bed), corn, a bowl of berries, champagne, a pipe, a white chicken, the chicken house and a fountain.
The ‘Henhouse’ magazine is one of the symbol scatters in ‘Cashanova.’ There’s also a fried egg scatter symbol and a golden key bonus. The wild symbol here is the wonderfully named Roger the Rooster. Roger can substitute for all other non-scatter or bonus symbols to help get you more winning combinations.
There are two modes of play in ‘Cashanova’ with regular and expert versions of the game. The expert mode simply allows you to set an autoplay. This isn’t the most difficult of games to play but a look through the paytable and some free games will help you prepare yourself for when you use your real cash balance.
There’s a couple of bonus games in ‘Cashanova.’ Firstly there’s the Barn Bonus which is triggered by getting three of the gold keys anywhere on the first three reels. Once triggered this takes you to a barn where there’s nine objects for you to choose from. There are cash amounts to be revealed or you could find the key to the hen house or the dog. If it’s the key then that’s great news as you’ll win all the available prizes and get you into the Get Lucky feature. That’s another pick ’em game but rather than nine objects to choose from, there’s only five this time. If you find the dog during the Barn Bonus that ends the round.
There’s also the Free Range Bonus which is an excellent free spins round. To trigger this you need three of the Free Range Bonus symbols to end up on the third, fourth and fifth reels. A large rooster appears and you have three choices to make. There are three rows of fried eggs and your choice of egg will determine how many free spins you get, the multiplier and a bonus win. I found this came up rather regularly and you can get some really good wins in this round.
I’ve never had so much fun with romantic chickens and that’s not something I thought I’d ever write. The symbols and soundtrack are a great laugh and the game is great fun to play. The bonus rounds are profitable too and you can win while laughing.
