IGT's Cash Coaster is one of first transmissive offerings by IGT. Cash Coaster offers several unique features. The game pays both right-to-left and left-to-right on all lines bet. Oddly enough, the game doesn't make this clear - confusing me as to how I was winning for a little while.
During gameplay, one or two reels may have roller coaster cars roll over them, turning that entire reel wild. In addition, there are bonus symbols which will trigger the a bonus round. When the a player gets three of these bonus symbols, they are asked to pick a ticket booth, revealing 4, 5, or 6 free spins. During the free spins, the entire first and last reels all become wild symbols.
Cash Coaster has a line hit frequency of 46% during the base game (46% of spins will pay something). Paybacks are configurable to be between 85.2% and 96.1%. Maximum bet will generally be 400 credits.
