The No1 Fruit Machine Simulator on the PC! Splash Cash is the first Fruit Machine simulator in the series. As its name suggests it is based on a water theme, with great graphics, Sound effects and buckets of playability.
Work your way up the trail or win on the reels to enter the feature game. Once on the feature play around the board, get to the end and you will be awarded with a jackpot repeater! But beware, along the way you could face some water hazards which may bring your trip around the board to a deadly end...
Important: No money can be lost or won on this game, it is purely for entertainment purposes. Any cash awards mentioned are all virtual, not real.
The main feature of this game is the 3 reels, each of which has 16 positions - much like a normal fruit machine. To win you need to match 3 symbols. This can be achieved using extra features such as nudges and holds. Throughout the game you will be awarded nudges at random, which allow you to step down the reels for a greater chance of obtaining a 3-of-a-kind win. Once a win is achieved you are entered onto the feature game, which is explained later.
