The Game

Cash Compass Slot

This Cash Compass slot is a lovely game to play.

The control panel sits at the bottom of the screen with a central win/information window.

At the far right of the panel is the auto spin function, next to that is the spin button and to the left of that up-and-down arrows that set your bet, a single figure control.

At the far left of the panel is a menu option, which opens up the sound, music, turbo play, information, and home controls.

The main bonus features are:

Spreading compass. The compass symbol can trigger a spread feature. Five symbols on the reels trigger a compass to spin. When the needle stops the compass symbols on the reels start to spread in the indicated direction and trigger even bigger wins. It’s a sort of respin, as standard wins are paid first.

The message in a bottle symbol delivers free spins. Three of these scatters open the free spins round. Spins come in 10s, and have extra compasses on the reels, with every single symbol triggering the spread feature.

The bonus wheel is triggered via a bonus symbol and is a random prize game.

The pay table opens on card symbols paying in groups from 6 to 15+.

Cards (jacks to aces) pay between 0.1-times stake and 10-times stake.

The treasure map and the shield pay from 0.5-times stake to 60-times stake; the bottle and the parrot both start at 1-times stake, shooting up to 70-times stake and 130-times stake respectively. It’s a generous looking setup.

The Verdict

We had a great time checking out this beautiful game and we think you will enjoy it too. Hacksaw are relative newcomers, but if titles like this keep coming off their workbench then they will only grow and grow.

Cash Compass is beautiful looking and sounding with great design every step of the way. It’s super smooth and really up to date. A fantastic game to look at.

The gameplay also delivers, with novel features like the compass spread, a nice prize pick game via a bonus wheel and a free spins round that could be generous thanks to its extra features.

Even the music is good!

There’s sophistication even in the controls and the menus of this game and if you fancy a bit of sun this summer then you should take this desert island trip. We’d love to know the volatility and hopefully, this figure will be revealed in time.
