Cash Drop is a 20 fixed win lines game that consists of a draw area of 18 hexagons which will rotate on an axis and then stop, producing a random hexagon colour and icon. The player receives a payout for connecting icons and multiplier wins for connecting colours.
All of the hexagons associated with the reaction wins will disappear and new hexagons will fill in to the vacant spaces with new icon/colour combinations and then potentially create new wins. The player gets wins when 3 or more matching consecutive symbols (that connect the hexagons from left to right) occur on a payline. All icon wins are counted first. When 5 matching colours appear on a payline, a 'reactions is created and x2 bet per line payout is awarded.
There are 9 different possible icons that sit on one of 3 possible coloured hexagons. All wins are paid as per the paytable.
3 or more "Gold Seven" Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels results in a payout.
