Think thunder and heavy bass music, purple clouds and rolling desserts, and a herd of wild animals. Add to that a waterfall of golden coins and rolling strings of consecutive wins! That is the imagery that NextGen is going for in its newest offering, Cash Stampede.
This game does not distract players with gimmicky feature games or animations, instead the fun is inherently built into the game’s mechanics. There is a wonderful Cash Stampede mode, endless strings of free spins and a lot of fun throughout!

Cash Stampede offers 243 ways to win, and win you will! The game is configured to provide small and fast wins throughout your gaming session. No one isn’t a fan of instant gratification, and you are guaranteed to walk away with a huge smile on your face.
Players can bet with as little as 25p and as much as £50 per spin. All 243 paylines are activated at one time, and there is no option to reduce it. However, I’d recommend going the safer route and play with smaller amounts in this game. This is because Cash Stampede is extremely fast paced, and it is easy to empty your pockets without realizing it.

Now, the game wouldn’t be complete without a Cash Stampede Re-spins Mode. You’ll get a free re-spin every time you get a win with wild-symbols and animal symbols. The animals and wild symbols are held sticky, while other positions are re-spun. These re-spins can be triggered continuously, until no more matching symbols appear. As the game explains: “the more symbols that join the stampede, the bigger your wins!”
Free spins come by easily as well. If you get three scatter symbols, you’ll be awarded with eight free-spins. During free games, the Wild is held in the middle position for a greater chance of triggering the Cash Stampede Re-spins. You’ll trigger re-spins during free-spins, and generally play for a long stretch of time without spending actual money.
Most of the time, these re-spins are all hype with few profits. Every once in a while, it gets extremely thrilling – I’ve gotten 10 consecutive re-spins in a row and more than 200 times my original bet!
You should also keep an eye out for Golden Bonus Coins. These guys only appear on reels 2, 3 or 4, so it’s slightly tricky to score this bonus. However, line three of them up and you’ll win you 50x your bet.

Granted, the visual direction of Cash Stampede is a little… odd. It is very purple, murky and gaudy. There are wild horses, raucous rhinos, towering elephants and grazing bisons. Another reviewer likened it to a marriage between African safaris and the rock band, Guns and Roses. In today’s slot landscape, it seems that quirkier is better. Remember Machine Gun Unicorn and its hilarious rendition of unicorns with machine guns for horns? Besides that, Cash Stampede performs well on all devices, including those with smaller screens. The bright coloured animals show up well on these small screens and the game runs without a hitch.
Proven fundamentals of slots
NextGen has been a dominant player in the iGaming industry for more than a decade. Its previous titles, such as Judge Dredd, Foxin Wins and Medusa II, have been well-received by British slot players. Their success can be attributed to their production philosophy: great games balance innovation with the “proven fundamentals.” It is not enough to create ground-breaking slot models like those in Slingo Riches or Bumper Crop.
Slingo Riches combines bingo and slots, while Bumper Crop has players managing a virtual farm while playing. Instead, Next Gen believes in the importance of constructing solid mathematical algorithms – stuff like quick and hard wins are more likely to capture a player’s attention than a new bonus game.
For a slot game with a questionable theme, Cash Stampede is a thrill. I had much more fun than I had expected. Since the game moves hard and fast, I got truly absorbed in the gameplay. However, be careful to always bet small in this game. Since the game is so fast-paced, you’ll run through your budget pretty quickly if you do not watch out.
