Drive – Multiplier Mayhem
Drive – Multiplier Mayhem
The wombat says: Hands up who thinks the Drive slot is a Fast and Furious rip off? Well who cares! Buckle up, you speed freaks and petrol heads and get ready for the ride of your life with Netent’s car-racing themed slot.
This is another visual feast from the Swedish designers along with games like the Warlords Crystals of Power slot and the Guns n Roses slot. They’ve been busy!
Set against a dark cityscape, the Drive: Multiplier Mayhem slot is one cool online slot. It’s all dark and moody on the reels with the odd flashes of pink neon, and symbols range from the usual low value 10, Q and K to your dodgy looking fellow racers Twitch, Hamaki and Bruiser… Plus the Multilplier Wilds have a unique way of working which makes the game as high-octane as it gets!
Our heroine is Jette, the pink-haired chick that’s handy with the driving wheel. She looks like she means business, like the lassie off Blazing Goddess, and she’s ready to smash the speed limit as you spin to win on this 5 reel and 15 pay-line game. Listen to the engines roar with the electro soundtrack which really adds to the atmosphere. There’s 15 lines to choose from with 1 to 10 bet-levels and coin values that start from 0.02 up to 0.5. The Wild is speedometer and the Scatters are made up of a dark silhouette of your rival drivers.
If you hit the spin button again while the wheels are spinning, you’ll hear the screech of brakes as the reels stop in their tracks for a fast spin.
In the Drive slot, the Multiplier Wilds appear on any reel and any row and can substitute for any symbol (except for Nitros and Scatters). So how does it work? Well, if you pick up a Multiplier Wild on reels 1-5 and, your bet gets multiplied by the actual reel number, for example, 3x for a Wild on reel 3. If you’re lucky enough to get two or more Multiplier Wilds along on the same winning pay-line, then each Wild is also multiplied too, giving you the chance to win a 120 X multiplier in total.
What is really cool about the wilds is the way the speedo lights flash up as the engines rev when they hit. It all adds to the adrenaline buzz you get from this slot!
Free Spin Bonuses
There are 3 kinds of Free Spins in the Drive: Multiplier Mayhem slot. We haven’t had this much fun since we cracked the Viking Fire slot bonus round.
In the base game you need 3 Scatters that can appear anywhere on reels 2,3 and 4 to activate your 10 Free Spins. Fasten your seat belt! Twitch will be your first opponent!
After the Free Spins have begun, get three Nitro symbols anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 to win extra Free Spins and a multiplier. It’s time to square up to Hamaki: the mean looking scarred face dude smoking the fat Cuban Montecristo cigar.
This one’s a bit more tricky. If you’ve been collecting Nitro symbols through the game these will show up in the Nitro Collect Meter on the left side of the screen. For every batch of Nitro symbols collected, you’ll get another fast and furious Free Spins round – but this time you’ll be racing your rivals. You start on Level 1 with whooping Twitch’s ass, then it’s time for Hamaki to eat your dust. The round ends when you’ve roared round the tracks with Bruiser on Levels 3 and 4, your final competitor. And hopefully won big!
Jette is the highest payer, followed by her set of wheels and then Bruiser, Hamaki and Twitch in that order. After that, you are into the lower paying card symbols- 10, J, Q, K and Ace.
The 15 pay-lines are set up as shown. Symbols pay from the leftmost reel to the right.
5 Jettes pay out 150 coins on level 1 and 1500 coins on level 10, 5 of her car pay 90 on level 1 and 900 on level 10 and so on. For even bigger wins, try and get some of that Multiplier Mayhem action going!
Mobile Drive Slot
Don’t use your mobile when you drive, use your mobile to play Drive! This game is all set up for smaller screens, so you can play it on the sofa, on the bus and in the motor (as long as you’re in the passenger seat).
Hit the “+” sign on the reel spinner button to bring up the auto-play option. You can dial in 50 automatic spins if you want- and any time you hit the spin button again, it goes back to manual. It kind of reminds me of cruise control!
Swipe up for full screen, swipe down for normal (am I starting to sound like Miyagi, the Karate Kid’s instructor?)
Click on the Auto Play text in the desktop version to bring out the Automatic Spins control panel. You can select between 10 and 1000 spins and if you head into Advanced Mode, you’ll also be able to program the game to stop on various outcomes, such as Any Win, If Free Spins is Won (that one we like), If Single Win Exceeds and so on. A very powerful set of features for pro players that!
On the desktop game, you can also set up Quick Spin mode and you can deactivate the intro-screen here. One last custom setting that we like, is that you can enable the space-bar to spin option. We just find that more comfortable if we are playing on a laptop or desktop.
The full screen transparent reels make this the perfect mobile slot game, and this wombat loves the awesome graphics. Check out how the city slowly moves from right to left (no carsickness allowed here). Overall a great play – although the Free Spins take a while to activate. You have to be patient and give yourself enough room for spins…
Put the pedal to the metal Baby! As the American writer E.B. White once said: “Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car”.
Wombat score 4/5
This game is a Ferrari!
