Getting started

It takes you on a journey into the African jungle with Pragmatic Play's latest release, Congo Cash! For the remainder of this review, we will refer to this medium variance slot as a Pragmatic Play slot, even though it’s actually developed by Wild Streak Gaming.

You'll find plenty going on in this game, including in-game jackpots, and a unique reel format, which features 432-ways to win, which makes it a unique experience. The graphics and theme of Congo Cash slot are the first things we need to look at in this review.


Theme and graphics

The setting of Congo Cash is deep within the African jungle, and while Pragmatic Play could have done more with the background imagery, the game's overall visuals and animations are very good. Besides being the higher-paying symbol, the Gorilla dominates the space above the three in-game jackpots on the left-hand side of the reels.


RTP and volatility of Congo Cash

Recent releases have seen Pragmatic Play ramp things up when it comes to volatility and variance. To some extent, this was exacerbated by the influx of Megaways slots that we saw the software provider release - and these high variance slots are clearly popular with the game developer's target audience.

Congo Cash is a little different - and we actually think it fits more in the medium variance category, despite a few jackpots and a relatively respectable maximum win of 5,500X your stake. Based on our experience, the bonus round triggers quite frequently, so you shouldn't have to wait long to begin seeing the game's action due to the fact that hits during the base-game occur quite frequently.

The game's default RTP of 96.51%, above average in today's iGaming industry, was also a pleasant surprise. Pragmatic Play ships Congo Cash with a default RTP of 96.51%.


Featured Bonuses

The Congo Cash slot machine has a lot to offer, even if it may not seem like it at first; this is due to the fact that all of the game's bonuses and features are triggered by one bonus, the Jewel Board.

Board Feature: Jewels

At the top of reels 2, 3 and 4, you'll find three positions, each displaying a different prize. This is a unique layout of Congo Cash. There are three potential prizes displayed on each of these positions during the base game:

Cash prizes, worth between 5X and 100X your total stake

A number of free spins, ranging between 8 and 100

The Minor Jackpot, worth 25X your stake

The Major Jackpot, worth 100X your stake

The Grand Jackpot, worth 2,000X your stake

A player can win one of these prizes by landing two Butterfly symbols on reels 1 and 5, along with a Congo Cash symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. Depending on how many prizes you land on a single spin, you'll be awarded the prize above the Congo Cash symbol.


Spins for free

During the main base game, you'll be able to trigger the free games feature by landing the Congo Cash symbol underneath a number of free spins. On each spin, one wild is added to the reel that actually triggered the bonus round, which makes things quite interesting.

It's possible to trigger the feature with as many as 100 free spins - so if you manage to get enough, and trigger it with more than one reel, you could fill the middle three reels entirely with wild symbols!

The Jewel Board bonus is also active during the free-spins bonus, which means you may win more free spins, cash prizes, or any of the jackpots available. You can play the free games until they run out, or until you reach the game's maximum win cap (5,500X your stake), at which point the bonus round ends and you return to the regular game.


Review of Congo Cash

The last few years have seen Pragmatic Play release hit after hit, quickly establishing themselves as one of the market leaders in iGaming.
