Imagine driving the famous Route 66 in a classic Dodge, stereo blaring, and stopping at Motels and diners all along the way. Now imagine doing it and you actually look like Brad Pitt – the whole experience might have just got a lot more fun as the evenings might possibly be a lot more enjoyable! This slot by Saucify takes you on this road trip of a lifetime – the ‘Max Ways’ in the title meaning that you’ll find much more win lines at this slot than on most others.
This is a slot with a nice look – the reels set against the backdrop of the open road and the bright blue sky. Many of the symbols on the reels are based around the refreshments you’ll enjoy on the trip, including a cold beer, ice cream, pancakes and one of the largest hamburgers you’ve ever seen. The reels also feature three human characters – the Brad Pitt lookalike, an overweight guy in a check shirt (I’m thinking truck driver or garage owner) and a blonde diner waitress wearing a Stetson. The final two symbols are the car which is also the wild and the big blue truck which is the highest paying symbol in the game. All the time while playing the slot is accompanied by a fitting rock track – turn up the volume and hit the road!
The main features of the slot are the free spins which are activated by the scatter symbol and the max ways to win.
At first glance this slot looks like a standard five reel slot, although the way you’ll win is much different to the standard win lines you’ll find at the majority of online slots. You’ll still need to land consecutive symbols but here there are 243 ways to win. This effectively means that if a symbol appears on three consecutive reels from left to right, you are guaranteed a win and if a symbol should appear on all five reels, you will win the top prize for that symbol irrespective of their position on the reels.
You’ll set both the coin amount and the coin value for the total cost of the spin – the 243 win lines actually coming at a cost of just 25x your coin value.
As the top paying symbol, you’ll win 500x your coin amount when landing the truck on all five reels. The waitress diner pays 300x for 5 in a row and is much more attractive than the big garage worker/truck driver who wins you 150x. The rest of the standard symbols are completed by the burger, the ice cream, the cold beer, the cocktail and the coffee with doughnuts.
The route 66 sign is the standard scatter symbol at the slot, this simply paying out a cash win when landing 3 or more across the reels. The top prize if landing 5 in a row is 75x, this win being based on the total stake for the spin, as opposed to the coin value.
The red Dodge is the wild symbol and will only land on reels 2 and 4. This is an expanding wild, meaning it will take up an entire reel if it will lead to an additional win. This wild will only substitute for the non-scatter symbols.
The driver (Brad Pitt) is the other scatter symbol, which activates the free spins round when appearing three or more times across the reels.
If you land the free spins round with the basic three scatter symbols you’ll gain 10 free spins – each additional scatter symbol adding another 5 free spins to your total. During this feature you’ll have the chance to re-activate the free spins should you land the scatters again. Perhaps the best part of the feature is the fact that all wins are doubled due to the 2x multiplier.
This slot by Saucify is certainly an enjoyable one. It looks good, has a fun element to it, and who couldn’t fall for the lure of the road trip across the US? The Max Ways to win adds a good element to the slot and with the expanded wild, the free spins and the additional scatter symbol, there is plenty of variety when playing. This is certainly a slot which many players will enjoy and it’s certainly one I would revisit.
