Mad Cars Slot Review – Push Gaming
It has been a whopping three months since my last Push Gaming slot review; the latest was for the game titled ‘Fat Banker‘, which has a max win capped at 25,000x and a Free Spins feature with a progressive growing wild mechanic. Today we are learning all about ‘Mad Cars’, which is set to release on August 10th!
We are taken to a post apocalyptic wasteland in this latest release, with a line up of racing drivers and a track to claim your victory. The game background shows off this apocalyptic landscape with structures made of scrap metal and dull weather. Visuals are impressive, with incredible details and a unique art style. Looking to be inspired by the popular Mad Max movies. Symbols are represented by items such as cones and steering wheels. With 4 apocalyptic racing characters.
Mad Cars has a setup of 5 reels by 6 rows; this includes 50 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.39% and a max win capped at 25,000x. You can bet £0.10 to £100.
Mad Cars Pay Table & Symbols
There are 18 symbols in total; this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by sliced cones, wrenches, steering wheels and dice. There are also 4 premium symbols; these are represented by 4 racer characters with light green, light blue, purple and red backgrounds. In addition to these regular symbols is an instant prize car symbol, scatter car symbol, multiplier symbol, gas symbol, multiplier & gas combo symbol, survivor symbol, line up symbol, persistent payer symbol, persistent collector symbol and persistent payer & collector combo symbol. The highest paying symbol is the red premium, which pays 100x for 5 across a pay line.
During base game spins, the ‘Boost Reel‘ will reveal boost symbols for each spin. Possible Boost Reel symbols are;
Multiplier Symbol – Multiplies the value of the instant prize car symbols. The Multiplier symbol can be applied to an instant prize car symbol only and will have a value of 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x or 100x.
Gas Symbol – Moves the car symbols forward according to the revealed value. The gas symbol can be applied to both the instant prize car symbol and the scatter car symbol will have values of 1 to 6.
Multiplier & Gas Combo Symbol – Multiplies the value and moves forward the car symbols according to the revealed value. This symbol can be applied to the instant prize car symbol and will have the same values as the individual multiplier and gas symbols.
Survivor Symbol – This symbol applies a persistent effect that secures the car symbol from being removed from the reel set when another car exceeds before it. When the other car symbol does exceed before the survivor symbol, the survivor effect is deactivated from that car symbol and remains in the same position.
Blank Symbol – This symbol does not affect the car symbols.
Mad Bonus Feature
The Instant Prize Car symbol is a bet multiplier; this symbol can land on any reel but only one per reel and only on the bottom row. These symbols can land with initial values 1x, 2x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x or 100x. These symbols remain on the reel set until it is awarded; it is awarded when it exceeds the top row.
The Scatter Car symbol can land on any reel but only on the bottom row. When this symbol exceeds the top row, the ‘Mad Bonus Feature’ is triggered. An instant prize of 10x is awarded for this symbol, and this value can’t be multiplied.
The Mad Bonus Feature is triggered when the scatter car symbol exceeds the top row. Awarding 7 Free Spins and 5 instant prize car symbols on the bottom row. When one instant prize car exceeds the top row, another will appear on the bottom of that reel and 1 additional spin is awarded. During spins the Boost Reel will reveal boost symbols on each spin. Containing the same symbols during base game spins, except the Survivor and some new ones. Including;
Line Up Symbol – When the Line-Up symbol is applied to an instant prize car symbol. All other instant prize car symbols will align to the same row the Boosted Car Symbol is.
Persistent Payer Symbol – Persistent Payer distributes its own Instant Prize Value to the other instant prize car symbols on the reels for that spin or any spin that follows while it remains on the reel set.
Persistent Collector Symbol – This symbol collects instant prize values from all instant car symbols. Adding them to its initial value for that spin and any that follow. It does not collect its own value.
Persistent Payer & Collector Combo Symbol – This symbol distributes its own instant prize value to other instant prize car symbols on the reel set. Collecting the instant prize values from other instant prize car symbols.
The ‘Mad Race Feature‘ is triggered randomly after the last Free Spin in the Mad Bonus Feature. When triggered, all instant prize car symbols will exceed the top row and payout.
Overall, I think this slot is an incredible release by the studio and includes so many mechanics. Including a max win capped at 25,000x and a unique bonus feature experience for all players. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on the launch and check out our exclusive casino offers.
