It’s time to put your racing helmet on, forget about any speed limits, rev up that engine and play the Flash Cash slot machine from Ainsworth. Speed is of the essence here as those wins you get will hopefully be subject to an increasing multiplier leading to some big cash wins to be really flash about.
This racing themed slot game has a total of five reels in the base game and six in the bonus round with three rows of attractive looking symbols and 30 pay-lines. That’s a fixed amount of pay-lines so you will be playing that amount on every spin of the reels. The minimum cost of playing Flash Cash is 0.30 and the max bet a total of 3000 so a high roller will be hoping to get on track for a big win. Just stake an amount you can afford to lose or to keep in with the theme, don’t go out and buy a Ferrari when you can only really afford a Mini.
The look of the Flash Cash video slot is a colourful one and in the background, we can see the cockpit of the racing car. Symbols include a racing car, a helmet, a tyre, speedometer, the chequered flag, and the champagne that the winners always spray all over the place. Perhaps you’ll be able to afford some and do the same if the big wins come along playing Flash Cash. There’s also the nine to Ace playing card symbols which will provide you with a steady stream of low value wins. If you can get five of the racing car symbols on a pay-line then that wins you 500 coins.
It’s the dollar sign that gets that job of wild symbol and can substitute for all other symbols apart from the gold trophy scatter to get you some wins. It’s only on the third, fourth and fifth but the good news is that it’s a stacked wild so that increases chances of wins.
To trigger the free spins round you need at least three of the scatter symbols to end up on anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin. You receive a total of ten free spins and lots of chances to get winning combinations. That’s because for a start the wild symbol now appears on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels and when it lands on the second and fourth reels it becomes an expanding wild. That means the whole reel is covered so big wins can be on the horizon. The best change though is the addition of the bonus reel giving six reels in the free spins round. This has 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers that will be used on the wins you get.
Another bonus is that if three or more scatter symbols end up on the reels again, then five more free spins are awarded. As is the case in a lot of Ainsworth games, there’s a different paytable used in the free spins round with the standard pay-outs lower which does slightly negate those multipliers. Why not just offer slightly lower multipliers and keep the same paytable? The scatters are worth more in the bonus round with five of them paying 250x your stake rather than 75x in the base game.
There’s also a gamble feature in this video slot. It’s the usual fare of getting a win and then deciding whether to try and increase it. You can keep your win if you want or be gambling It by trying to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card to double your win. A wrong choice sees you lose your win so give the black flag to this when getting a big win and race onto the next spin.
There’s a fair amount happening in this slot so make sure you do some research before playing with real cash.

When playing at online casinos or playing this on your iPhone, you will find other games that have similar gameplay to this slot. You can try another Ainsworth slot ‘Mighty Wilds’ which is a clone of this slot. It also has 30 pay-lines, a free spins round, expanding wilds and an additional reel during the bonus round. Also try your luck on ‘Big Thunder’ from Ainsworth which also has 30 fixed pay-lines but offers 15 free spins in the bonus round and has a slightly higher RTP than Flash Cash.
A standard Ainsworth slot game with a lot of the features their games often include. It’s a good theme though nothing new and well adhered to and there are some good wins to be had in this slot. The free spins round is where the big cash lies in wait particularly if the high multipliers come along, so give this a spin.
