Slot Review: Cash Noire

Dark visuals and evocative symbols plunge you right into all the excitement of this atmospheric casino slot where the action plays out on a 5×4 grid and gives you 1,024 ways to win. Cash Noire is part of the real money online slots offering at The Phone Casino, and you’ll be drawn into the criminal underbelly of the fictional city of San Cayetano in no time at all!

Let’s find out more about this slot machine game and what you can expect when playing it.


Cash Noire has an RTP (return to player) of 96.06% and a hit frequency of 21.87%. As a low volatility slot, wins are more frequent although of a lower value.

Whether you’re playing slots online with a small or larger budget, this game will suit most bankrolls, with bets starting at 20p and going up to a sizable £200 per spin. Keep in mind that this slot uses several fixed-bet ways instead of the paylines that are more common to online slots. To form winning combinations, you’ll need to land at least three matching symbols consecutively from the first reel.


Cash Noire, developed by NetEnt, is set in the fictional city of San Cayetano and does full justice to the crime theme with engaging characters set against a dark atmospheric nightscape that changes depending on the base game and various features, from a map of San Cayetano streets and moody city scenes to the interior of Detective Flint’s PI agency and the Cat’s Eye bar where a woman smokes beside a table where illegal card games go down after dark.

While this real money slot’s backdrop is dark and menacing, all the symbols are lit with bright edging to stand out and contribute perfectly to the brooding look and feel of the game.

Symbols are a whiskey tumbler, magnifying glass, matches, an ace playing card, a dagger, and a pistol. The symbol of the mysterious smoking woman is the highest value symbol.

Features and bonuses

You can enjoy three bonus features that use avalanche reels to give you more chances to win. In addition, there are transforming mystery symbols and free spins that can award multipliers of 10x your stake. Let’s take a closer look at the Cash Noire features.


When you land a winning combination in Cash Noire, the avalanche feature kicks in, removing winning symbols from the reels and replacing them with new symbols that cascade into the vacated positions. The aim is to form additional winning combinations. This feature will continue to be in play until no new winning combos are formed.

Crime Zone

The Crime Zone feature comes into play as you add to a pattern of “hotspots” with every spin. You’ll start with three, increasing to four and five, which triggers a mystery clue from the Clue List.

Mystery symbols

When the mystery symbol (a vault) appears on the reels outside the Crime Zone in both the base game and Free Spins feature, it transforms into a random symbol from the paytable. When it appears inside the Crime Zone, it clones itself onto all points in the “hotspots” pattern. Each of these clones then changes to the same random symbol from the paytable, awarding you with bigger wins.

Free Spins

As you add to the hotspots pattern with each spin, you can trigger a mystery clue from the Clue List. This list, displayed as a metre, shows you getting closer to the Free Spins feature. If the Crime Zone expands to four hotspots, three to six clues are activated. Trigger seven or more clues, and the Crime Zone expands to five hotspots. If you’re lucky enough to trigger 13 clues, then you’ll play the Free Spins feature with six free spins.

A City Chase map will show the positions in which the multiplier progresses and how you can win extra free spins. On the City Chase map, you’ll notice a lit-up car that moves around. When it reaches 13 spots on the map, you’ll be awarded two extra free spins. Then each time you reach another seven locations, the multiplier will increase by one until you potentially reach the final location, which means you’ve closed the case, and the multiplier will be 10x your stake.
