Maid o Money

The dirty and frankly unglamorous world of a maid cleaning service hasn’t traditionally been featured heavily in online slots games but we can trust those crafty developers at Next Gen to do something different, can’t we?

The Maid o Money slot is a 5 reel game with 25 paylines; it makes cleaning up around the house seem more glamorous than you might expect and also brings a welcome touch of bling to the screen as well. This is because the symbols on the reels give us a rather strange mixture of fancy stuff like golden tiaras and expensive looking shoes together with more mundane objects such as pieces of cleaning equipment. Overall, the graphics and the sound are decent but possibly many regular players wouldn’t class them as amazing, however if you are looking for something a little different then this could be the game for you.

One aspect of Maid o Money that helps it stand out from the crowd is the fact that it has a nice range of bonus features. These are always very welcome, as players can enjoy different ways of playing as well as having the chance to win big at the same time.

Wild symbol:

The attractive maid, complete with saucy stockings and suspenders, is the game’s wild symbol and she can replace any of the other symbols except the bag and the Maid o Money logo.

Scatter symbols and bonus rounds:

The game’s logo only ever pops up on reels 2, 3 and 4, while the bag appears on the 5th reel. These images are key to entering into the Cashpot feature. This bonus round is triggered when either one of two different things happen; you need either 3 logos or alternatively 2 logos and 1 bag to enter the Cashpot round.

Once this happens, you get 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier on wins. You win the Cashpot figure every time a bag appears. This amount will have been increased every time you got a bag symbol in the base game before you entered this bonus round, so you can end up with a very healthy win. 

The Money Maid Bonus is the other feature to keep an eye out for. This feature is awarded after selected spins and gives you one of three options, chosen at random. You can either get the Roaming Wild, the Money Wheel or the Cash Ladder; these features are all well worth having, of course. The Roaming Wild adds more wild symbols to the reels while the other two are kind of pick em bonus rounds with big prizes up for grabs.

Gamble feature:

If you want to throw away that duster for good and live a life of luxury then maybe you need to take a chance on multiplying your winnings. This option comes in the form of the gamble feature on Maid o Money. Simply put, you need to guess either the colour or the suit of the card that is about to be pulled out. Get the colour right and you double your original prize; if you choose the right suit then your winnings increase x 4.

Our verdict:

The theme for this game is rather unusual but it works for us. The mixture of a life of luxury and the life of a maid makes it clear that winning big money on a slots game is something well worth doing. After all, who wouldn’t want to chuck their feather duster in the bin, put on their diamond tiara and lie back with a glass of champagne?
