If you like distinctively different online pokies then you should try Phantom Cash. It has the ghostbusting theme, which though rare, is not unheard off. The uniqueness of the online pokie lies in the artwork that belongs to the steam punk genre. This includes Victorian age machinery, particularly steam generating types. The overall ambience is one of disuse and corrosion, which is a perfect haunt for ghosts. Phantom Cash is an online pokie from Microgaming and can be played at online casinos like All Slots, Spin Palace and Royal Vegas.
The ghostbusters are Messrs Thurmingham and Carstairs. They are not like the cool guys in the Ghostbusters franchises. They appear awkward in their cumbersome Victorian attire. Both of them are wild symbols with a two times multiplier property. The flip side is that Thurmingham appears only on reel 1 and Carstairs appears only on reel 5. The high paying symbols are four ghosts. The red ghost of the old man awards the top payout of 1000 times the line bet for five symbols in a payline. This is indicative of moderate volatility. The low paying symbols are the usual Microgaming playing card icons. The scatter symbol is the haunted house, which awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The maximum scatter payout for five haunted house symbols is 100 coins.
The bonus feature in Phantom Cash online pokie is triggered in the common manner of landing three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. There is a ghost meter on the screen that displays an initial value of 8. This is the number of ghosts to be caught. Thurmingham and Carstairs capture a ghost if it lands in the same row as any of them in any free spin. Every ghost caught awards a bonus of two times the triggering bet. If both the ghostbusters are on the same row then each ghost caught pays four times the triggering bet. Every ghost caught reduces the meter reading by one. Three scatter symbols landing on the reels during the free spins increase the meter reading by 8. The free spins will continue till the ghost meter reading is zero.
Phantom Cash has the standard structure of 5 reels and 3 rows with 25 fixed paylines. The coin size can be varied from AU$0.01 to AU$0.25 and you can wager up to 20 coins per payline. The maximum total bet per spin works out to AU$125, which is high enough to bring in the high roller casino players.
