The Miami glitz is quite impressive indeed, but will the gameplay live up to the standards that we’ve come to expect from Lucksome titles? If previous games are anything to go by, then Fat Stacks Miami Cash could be a promising option if you’re looking for a classical vibe, but new features.
In the words of Will Smith ‘I’m goin’ to Miami’, and you should join us for the trip.
Fat Stacks Miami Cash Base Game and Features
Fat Stacks Miami Cash is a 6-reel Video slot with up to 1,000,000 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the highest-paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€50 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.11% and a max win cap of 15,000x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Diamond, followed by the Red 7, Blue 7, Purple 7, and Silver 7. Low-paying symbols fall to Bells, Bars, Cherries, and X’s. Wilds substitute for all other symbols except Luxpots and Modifiers.
Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels, making room for new symbols to drop down from above via a Cascade.
The Fat Stacks feature is triggered when 2-3 of the same symbols land on the same reel, transforming into a Double or Triple FatStack symbol.
When 3 of the same symbols land on the same reel, they will form the maximum FatStack size. If there are other identical symbols on a reel, a new FatStack will form.
Symbols that form a FatStack will drop through all other symbols on the reel below it, and into the first identical symbol they meet. This will then trigger a Cascade to fill all empty positions on the reel. Up to 3 Fat Stacks can be created on different positions on the same reel.
During the base game, regular Luxpot symbols can randomly drop into view, up to a maximum of 4 per reel. Bonus Luxpot symbols can also land in view, up to a maximum of 4 per game round.
Landing 3 or more Luxpot symbols will award a Cash Prize from the Prize Ladder, as follows.
- 3 Luxpots – Awards 1x your bet.
- 4 Luxpots – Awards 5x your bet.
- 5 Luxpots – Awards 15x your bet.
- 6 Luxpots – Awards 40x your bet.
- 7 Luxpots – Awards 100x your bet.
- 8 Luxpots – Awards 500x your bet.
- 9 Luxpots – Awards 1,000x your bet.
- 10 Luxpots – Awards 2,000x your bet.
Modifiers can appear anywhere on the reels (except for the Platinum Upgrade), modifying the Prize Ladder and transforming into regular Luxpots. There are 5 Modifiers available as follows.
- Shuffle – Guaranteed to increase your current Prize Ladder value by swapping with a randomly chosen higher Prize Ladder value. If the Prize Ladder is modified before the shuffle appears, the new higher value will be taken from the upgraded values.
- Upgrade – Upgrades all Prize Ladder values to the next available rung above, moving the Bonus Chance to 1 rung down.
- Transform – Transforms a number of random symbols (except Luxpots and Modifiers) to regular Luxpot symbols, Upgrade Modifier, and/or Shuffle Modifier.
- Merge – Combines 2 adjacent rungs from the Prize Ladder to inherit the win value of the higher rung, with the minimum and maximum range of Luxpots to reach it. This Modifier appears only in Free Spins, once per round.
- Platinum Upgrade – Upgrades the Prize Ladder to one with higher values at the start of the Free Spins round. This Modifier can only be won in the Free Spins Picker feature, up to a maximum of 2 per round.
Modifiers will only alter the Prize Ladder when all Cascades are complete and there are no more winning combinations in view. Only 1 of each Modifier can appear on the reels during the base game or Free Spins round, except the Transform Modifier which can appear on every spin in Free Spins.
Fat Stacks Miami Cash Free Spins
Triggering the Free Spins round requires at least 1 Bonus Luxpot in view and for the total number of Luxpot symbols to reach or exceed the Bonus Chance on rung 7 of the Prize Ladder. For every additional Bonus Luxpot symbol in view, the Bonus Chance will move down one rung until the Free Spins round is won.
Once triggered, the round will begin with a Free Spins Picker feature. During this time, pick and choose icons until 3 matching values determining the number of Free Spins are found.
During Free Spins, all modifications to the Prize Ladder are persistent until the end of the Free Spins round. Please note, the Free Spins round cannot be retriggered.

Fat Stacks Miami Cash: Our Verdict
Fat Stacks Miami Cash presents significant potential for players everywhere with its 15,000x win cap and beckons those with an appetite for big rewards and adventure. Depending on your view about more classical themes, then Fat Stacks Miami Cash will feel like an enriching experience or a bit of a generic one.
We’re big fans of the classical ‘7s’, so to us, it’s an appreciated love letter to what feels like a bygone era of gaming, considering how many providers have left this style behind.
When it comes to gameplay. Fat Stacks Miami Cash has a rather harmonious equilibrium between its base game and free spins, which makes it an engaging experience throughout. In terms of innovation, we don’t think Fat Stacks Miami Cash completely reinvents the wheel, and we wouldn’t quite dub it the ‘Megaways killer’ quite yet.
Regardless, it has plenty of features that triggered fairly frequently when we tried it and an engaging and potentially rewarding Free Spins round. Overall, Fat Stacks Miami Cash probably won’t bust through the doors of the Hall of Fame, but it makes its presence known as a new slot to look forward to.
