The Steampunk Phantom Cash Online Slot

May 10, 2018

Microgaming has announced a new video slot Fortunium that will have steampunk artwork styling. Steampunk styling uses mechanical imagery from the past, particularly steam-driven piping and equipment from the Industrial Revolution Age. The leading software provider has experimented with steampunk before in a popular video slot titled Phantom Cash. This fits in perfectly with the ghost busting theme. The artwork is supplemented by eerie background music. Phantom Cash is live at online casinos like All Slots, Spin Palace and Royal Vegas.

The two ghost busters are Thurmingham and Carstairs. Their Victorian wear matches with the steampunk era. Thurmingham appears only on reel 1 while Carstairs appears only on reel 5. Both these gentlemen act as wild symbols that double payouts when substituting in winning combinations. The high paying symbols are four ghosts of different colours that haunt the premises. They all start paying from combinations of three symbols. The red ghost of the old man awards the top payout of 1000 times the line bet for five symbols in a payline. The low paying symbols are the usual Microgaming playing card icons. The scatter symbol is the haunted house. Three or more of these symbols appearing anywhere on the reels award payouts multiplied by the total bet. The maximum scatter payout is 100 coins.

The bonus feature in Phantom Cash online slot is integrated with the theme. It is triggered by landing three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. A ghost meter is displayed on the screen with the initial value of 8. This is the number of ghosts that have to be caught by Thurmingham and Carstairs. You start with an unspecified number of free spins. Ghosts are captured when they land in the same row as the ghost busters in any free spin. Every ghost caught awards a bonus of two times the triggering bet. If both the ghostbusters happen to be on the same row then each ghost caught pays 4 times the triggering bet. The ghost meter reading is reduced by one for every ghost caught. Three scatter symbols landing on the reels during the free spins increase the meter reading by 8. The free spins continue till the ghost meter reading is zero.

Phantom Cash has five reels, three rows and 25 fixed paylines. The maximum total bet per spin works out to $125. Phantom Cash is a high rollers online slot game with moderate volatility.
