Money Cart Bonus Reels Slot Review 2021
Grab yourself a seat on the Money Cart as we join the elusive Outlaws on a way one train to the Volatile Wild West in Money Cart Bonus Reels by Relax Gaming!
Notorious leader, ‘The Collecter’ and his trusty crew, the stunning ‘Ms Payer’ and demolition king ‘The Widener’ are back and this time the Bounty on their heads is bigger than ever. Have you got what it takes to capture these bandits and reap the ultimate reward?
Interestingly enough, Money Cart Bonus reels is the second Money Cart Slot to get a Bonus Reels Format, with Money Train 2 having benefitted from the UK Focused Format first.
The Money Train Slots are well renowned, but they lost some of their viability when Bonus Buys where banned from the UK Market. The Bonus Reels Format brings the slot back to UK players, and we’re excited to see how the first Money Train performs as a Money Cart game!
Money Cart Bonus Reels Theme
If you’re familiar with the first Money Train then you’ll feel a sense of nostalgia when playing Money Cart. However, the graphical improvements is very clear.
Money Cart 2 tried and succeeded to up the quality when compared to Money Train 2, but the quality differences between them are minimal considering how good Money Train 2 looked to begin with.
In Money Cart Bonus Reels, a lot of the background is lost but the symbols and textures look miles better than they did in the original Money Train Slot. Sounds are pretty much the same between the original and this slot.
Money Cart Bonus Reels Betting and Symbols
Money Cart Bonus Reels has a variety of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available is £/€0.10 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is an impressive £/€500 per spin, with plenty of betting options in between the two.
As we look into symbols, Money Cart Bonus Reels only has a select few. The symbols you will come across are Bonus, Persistent Payers and Collectors and Regular Payer, Collector and Widener symbols.
These symbols are recognisable from Money Train, and they have the same functionality as they did in Money Train as well.
Money Cart Bonus Reels Re-Spins
Money Cart Bonus Reels does not have a base game, so you won’t be able to play it like you would Money Train.
Instead, choose your bet level and spin for a chance to land 3 Bonus symbols to start the Re-Spins feature. Once this happens, a Respin round similar to the Free Spins in Money Train will start.
You will be awarded 3 Re-Spins, and you will need to land at least 1 additional symbol on the reels to reset the spins back to 3. If you’re not fortunate to land any other symbols during the 3 Re-Spins, the feature will come to an end.
Now, we know you’re probably familiar with most of the symbols and their abilities from playing Money Train, but for those who are not, here’s what these symbols do.
- Bonus Symbol – Reveals a value between 1 and 10.
- Persistent Payer – Adds its own value to all other values on the reels at the end of every spin.
- Persistent Collector – Collects all values on the reels at the end of every spin.
- Payer – Adds its own value to all other values once.
- Collector – Collects all values on the reels and adds them to its own value.
- Widener – Opens up an additional reel.
Money Cart Bonus Reels: Our Verdict
Relax Gaming has done well in bringing back the Money Train Slot to UK players with its Bonus Reels twist, but is it any better than Money Cart 2? Naturally no.
After all, Money Train 2 was designed to improve on Money Train 1, so it’s only natural that Money Cart 2 would have a lot more allure than Money Cart despite the order in which they were released this time around. In some ways, you wonder why Relax would bother to re-release Money Train as Money Cart considering how they’ve already got Money Cart 2, but it will be a positive move for those who for some reason prefer the first Money Train Game.
Persistent Symbols are once again the main aim in Money Cart, and if the conditions are right you can cross your fingers and hope for the maximum potential of 20,000 coins (2,000x) to show itself.
We know that neither Money Cart or Money Cart 2 is as potent as Money Train or Money Train 2, but how could they be? Short of offering a bonus buy option, which they can’t, there’s no way to bring the true potential of the Money Train series to life without undermining their original releases. At the end of the day, Money Cart is a slot specifically aimed at UK players.
If you’re itching for a bit of Money Train action but you think the originals aren’t viable, then Money Cart may well scratch an itch. If we were you though, we’d stick with Money Cart 2.
