Special Features

King Cashalot has a number of exciting special features that add a bit of challenge and make the experience more fun.

  • King Wild Symbol: The King is the wild symbol and it acts as a substitute for any of the symbols in the game to form a winning combination, except for the Jester or the Golden Dragon. The King also doubles your payment and if two multipliers appear on any line, you will get a quadruple bonus.
  • Treasure Bonus Game: If the Golden Dragon appears on reels two to four, the Treasure Bonus Game is triggered. This means that you get the chance to pick a treasure chest containing different winnings. You have three chances to pick a chest but the amount you win is only equal to the amount of the most recent chest you have picked. If the value of the second or third chest is less than previous chests, you win the lesser amount. The bonus value you win will be multiplied by the number of coins you bet per line and the number of enabled pay lines – this amounts to your Treasure Bonus Prize.
  • Regular or Expert Mode: King Cashalot has two different options for players – regular or expert mode. The expert mode lets you play the game using the Auto Play feature, so you can play a certain number of spins automatically instead of manually spinning the reels. Regular mode doesn’t have this feature.

Newcomers will love the low stakes, which let you get to grips with the game and be in for a chance of winning without having to bet big.
