Speed Along the Reels
You’ll notice from the first point of loading up the game that there are five reels included in the game, which are joined by three rows. This provides a standard video slot layout for players, and the icons incorporated onto its reels are all very strongly designed. These incorporate various different drivers, who appear to be contestants in their own little speed race. You’ve got the butch, head-shaven muscle boy, known as Bruiser, the hoodie and google-wearing egoist, Twitch, the token female who’s trying to outdo her male opponents, and the cigar-smoking bad guy who looks ready to set his hench men on you, Hamaki. Included alongside these icons is a still shot of the moving car to the left of the reels.
As well as incorporating its standard reels and rows, this game also offers up a total of 15 pay lines, which are fixed in place. However, if you do have a desire to customise parts of it, you can alter the coin value in the first instance. This has a range of between $0.01 and $0.50. Meanwhile, you’re also able to change the bet level of the game between one and 10. This allows all players to place a maximum overall wager of $75 per spin. There has also been a ‘Max Bet’ icon included in game play, as well as an ‘Auto Play’ button, which offers you up the possibility of spinning up to 1000 consecutive times at the same wager amount.
Tyre Tracks of Special Goodness!
Drive offers up several special features, all of which will further enhance your game play to its maximum level. The first of these specialities is known as the ‘Multiplier Wild’. These act, in the first instance, as any other standard wild icon does, substituting for all others on the reels in order to form a winning combination, with the exception of scatter and ‘Nitro’ symbols. However, each different reel contains a different multiplier wild, with the amount of the multiplier changing depending upon which reel it appears on. So, the times one appears on reel one, times two on reel two, and so on. Should two or more appear on the reels at any time, the multiplier is added together.
There’s a scatter icon included in game play as well, which is represented by three blacked out men, and these can appear anywhere on the central three reels. Should one appear on each of these, you’ll be rewarded with a total of 10 freespins. During this round, you’ll see the introduction of the ‘Nitro’ symbols. Should three of these appear anywhere on reels two, three and four, additional freespins and overlay multiplier wilds will be awarded.
When Nitro icons appear, they will be stacked in the ‘Nitro Collect Meter’ from bottom to top. If one of these appears above an overlay multiplier wild, it is counted as both a Nitro and multiplier wild icon. The freespins begin with you racing against Twitch, your first opponent. After collecting three Nitro symbols, you’ll move on to the next level. You’ll receive a random overlay multiplier wild, and your next opponent appears – that being Hamaki. Four further freespins are granted and the next level starts. The final round sees you race against Bruiser, and you continue racing until the end of the freespins round.
