How to Play

The King Cashalot slot game is a five-reel, nine-payline progressive slot machine that allows players to bet up to five coins per payline. Players must bet the maximum number of coins and paylines to qualify for the progressive jackpot, but because the minimum coin size is just $0.01, players only have to wager $0.45 per spin to play for the big prize.

Players can win by arranging combinations of three-to-five of a given symbol on a wagered payline. The game features an array of symbols, including:

  • 5 x Queen Symbols pays 1,000 coins
  • 5 x Knight pays 500 coins
  • 5 x Damsel pays 400 coins
  • Jester is scatter symbol and gives bonus spins
  • King Cashalot is wild replacing symbols for winning lines
  • Golden Dragon symbol launches a bonus round

The progressive jackpot is tied to the King Cashalot Symbol, as players win the big prize by wagering on all nine paylines and hitting five King Cachalot’s on the magical ninth payline. Combinations of the King Cashalot Symbol also create winning payouts for players. On the first eight paylines, this combination can payout between 15x for two King Cashalots to 15,000x for five Kings.

Graphics and Sounds

The slot’s medieval theme is a throwback to the land of grand feasts and royalty. The symbols are all cartoon caricatures of various people and treats that might be found at a king’s banquet, and the background sound is designed to create a similar feel, with guests laughing and music playing as gamblers shoot for the progressive jackpot.


Players must wager five coins on each of the nine paylines in order to qualify for the progressive jackpot. The jackpot begins at $100,000 and grows until a lucky player takes home the prize, and like other Microgaming progressives such as Mega Moolah regularly swells north of $1-million. The progressive slot has paid out an average of once every 41 weeks, and players can win by landing five of the King Cashalot symbols on the ninth payline.

The real draw to this jackpot is how little players need to wager to qualify. Rare is the slot that lets you compete for $1-million by wagering as little as $0.45, and it’s in this regard that players get a true steal playing King Cashalot Slots.

Special Features

King Cashalot features three special symbols, each of which can be used to enhance a player’s chance of winning

Wild Symbol: Not only is King Cashalot key to winning the progressive jackpot, he also holds an important role for players trying to enjoy the rest of the game. King Cashalot is the wild symbol, meaning he can be used to replace other symbols on the board, creating more winning combinations. Players can also win by combining between two and five King Cashalot symbols on any wagered paylines, earning between 15x and 15,000x bets placed on the first eight paylines.

Scatter Symbol: If the Jester scatter symbol appears on the screen along with a win, players are awarded bonus spins, and the same goes for landing multiple scatter symbols on the same screen. Spinning a pair of Jester’s earns a player one bonus credit, while collecting five on the same screen results in 50 free spins.

Treasure Bonus Game: The golden dragon symbol only appears on reels two and four, and when a player lands one of them on a payline, the Treasure Bonus Game is triggered. In the bonus game, players get the chance to open three treasure chests containing different prizes. Players open the chests one at a time, and can choose to either keep the winnings they discover or move on to a different chest. A player’s winnings in the bonus game are multiplied by the number of coins bet per line and the number of pay lines wagered, meaning that players will win more if they’ve gambled more.
