Ainsworth’s Thunder Cash Classic Slot Arriving At Pennsylvania Casinos

It’s a new game with a classic look. Ainsworth, a slot company well-known for its Thunder Cash title, recently released Thunder Cash Classic, a three-reel version of the popular game.

According to recent reports, the game has been hitting casino floors this month and should be landing inside Pennsylvania casinos soon, as well. (Ainsworth also provides many slots titles to PA online casinos.)

PA casinos set to debut Thunder Cash Classic new slot game

Two locations we know will offer the exciting new slot are Wind Creek and Parx Casino, along with some others.

The three-reel, nine-line slot seems to follow the same simple formula that has made previous Ainsworth Game Technology slots so successful. The displays feature the classic BAR, 7, and other icons that traditional slot players are very familiar with.

“We went out of our way to give it that classic look,” Thunder Cash Classic game designer, Terry Daly, said. “It’s very traditional, even down to the dashboard. It’s a very simple game, a pure math model.”

Although the game features a classic design, a linked PA progressive slots jackpot will help keep the game competitive with other modern titles that can produce massive payouts.

Thunder Cash Classic may soon appear in many of the same spaces as its predecessor, Thunder Cash. The Valley Forge Casino Resort and Presque Isle Downs and Casino in Erie currently host multiple Thunder Cash machines. The newest version should make it to those floors, too.


Ainsworth Thunder Cash has fared well in the slot industry

Thunder Cash Classic certainly hopes to produce dividends similar to its sister slot. According to the official Ainsworth site, the original Thunder Cash game has been a top high-denomination slot performer for several years. It is also among the company’s top online options.

Ainsworth’s entire slot portfolio features an extensive collection of games with notable titles in both the online and the retail environments. Some of those popular games include the following:

  • Mustang Money: A Wild West-themed 5×3 slot with up to 100 paylines
  • Rumble Rumble: An animal-themed 5×3 slot that features multipliers and expanded wilds
  • Electric Nights: Another 5×3 slot which highlights a Las Vegas theme, 30 paylines and a jackpot that can deliver 333x your bet

The original Thunder Cash title features 5-10-20 lines, with a denomination range of 25 cents to $500.

Thunder Cash Classic will also offer numerous denomination options within a similar scope, from 25 cents to $100.

In addition, the game’s major and minor jackpots have must-hit numbers that vary based on the denominations played, along with each individual machine, as well.

But the promise of big-time payouts is always present. There are five times more chances of hitting Thunder Cash Classic’s symbols-driven jackpot.

And that fact, combined with its classic appeal, should be more than enough to entertain a number of Pennsylvania casino players.

“Thunder Cash Classic will appeal to a traditional player who likes the simplicity and doesn’t need all the bells and whistles,” Daly said. “They know they’re going to either hit it or come back and try again tomorrow.”
