Not quite like any other slot that you have seen so far, Hot Wheels is a 5 reels and 20 adjustable pay lines slot, released by SkillOnNet.
If you are ready to hit the open road and feel the wind on your face, pulling the virtual lever and setting Hot Wheels slot reels into motion may just be the next best thing.
And, if your thirst for adventure is still not extinguished, there will be plenty of adrenaline along Route 66, as you drive through the desert and conquer one payout level after another.
Drawing inspiration from the wild and dangerous, rock and roll lifestyle, Hot Wheels is placed in a context of an on-the-road, counterculture living, which we do not get to see very often in slots. The Wild of the game is a tough Biker figure, who starts his journey to the unknown with a hot girl at his side and the law enforcement officer on his tail.
The rest of the symbols fit perfectly in the dusty road background – Motel, Helmet with the American Flag pattern (a heart-warming tribute to the iconic 1969 Easy Rider and Captain America), Route 66 Road sign and the Engine key.
Even the symbols with a lower value match the theme and kudos to the software developer for showing a bit of creativity and not simply using the standard letters and numbers icons.
Pack of Cigarettes, Road Map, Spanner and the Fuel Dispenser will generate smaller payouts for the combinations of 3, 4 and 5 and in case you have the need for speed, Auto Roll button will initiate 1000 automated spins, which can be stopped and reset manually.
Once you start the engine and get out to the open road in search of adventures, freedom and self-discovery, your energy levels will have to be maintained at the optimal level. With the help of at least 3 Scatter symbols – Energy Drink Cans – the player will activate 5 Free spins and unlock the Adrenaline Mode. The Wild icon will have a much higher value during the Adrenaline feature and Biker symbol will increase all the winnings to up 100x.
There are four different levels within the bonus mode, each with a different multiplier. As you collect the cans, you will advance through the game levels and unlock x2, x5, x10 and finally the x100 multiplier, when you reach level 4.
Obviously, the bonus features are not over the top but the frequency rate of triggering the Free Spins and activating the special feature is decent and you will not be held in a limbo of expectation, caught in a web of one dead spin after another.
With the return to player percentage of 95.06% and the potential payout of 60,000 coins, Hot Wheels slot may not be the hottest slot on the market, but it still offers a decent winning potential – mainly thanks to the multipliers in the adrenaline mode.
