Midnight Racer from Genii: Slot Review - drive fast and furious to victory!
This game is all about fast cars and high-speed chases. It is clearly influenced by the Fast & Furious movie franchise and is quite similar to Drive Multiplier Mayhem by NetEnt in both looks and style.Petrol heads will certainly enjoy giving this slot a try as you drift your car along the highway in search of a big payout.
The game has 5 reels, 30 paylines and comes with wild multipliers and a free spins feature.
The first thing I noticed while playing this game is the Wild symbol and it’s depicted by the Midnight Racer logo. It substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol and it is also the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 Wild symbols then you will be awarded a top prize worth a massive 7,000 coins! Another interesting feature of this symbol is that any win with a Wild symbol will double your win.
The Scatter symbol is illustrated by a lady holding starter flags with a flaming background. If you land 3 of these symbols on the reels then you will trigger the Free Spins feature. In this bonus game, all wins are tripled! 3 symbols will give you 8 free spins, 4 will give you 12 and 5 symbols will give 20 free spins. Additional spins can be retriggered during this bonus game as well.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The game’s presentation is a little drab when compared to more recent car-based slots and this is surprising considering the visuals are quite interesting to look at. The symbols vary from drivers to gear sticks and nitrous canisters. They animate nicely when you land a winning combination on the reels especially the Scatter symbol as cars whizz past the lady holding the starter flags.
The music is fast techno and there are lots of car revving sounds as you spin the reels. It suits the game quite well since it is all about the thrill of racing cars at insane speeds.
Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
The game has 30 paylines, a good RTP of 96%, and an excellent maximum payout worth 4,160X your total bet.
Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
