Drive Multiplier Mayhem Slot from NetEnt
Fast cars, gang-type characters and atmospheric synth music combine with some potentially big multipliers to make Drive Multiplier Mayhem slot game by Net Entertainment an enjoyable slot. Things are certainly fast, the spin of the reels, resolution of wins and (especially) the free spins game are all noticeably quicker than other slots. The lead character is a pink-haired lady called Jetta, who races against some unsavory looking men during the ‘nitros’ powered free spins game. This is a 15-win line video slot, which you can spin for just 30c a time.
How to Win on Drive Multiplier Mayhem
Multiplier wilds play a big part in this game. These can appear on any reel, and multiply wins that they are part of by up to 5 times. These look like LED speed meters from cars. If you get more than one involved in a win, the multiplication happens again. For example, if you get a 2x and a 3x multiplier wild together, then the amount of the win created is multiplied by 6.
Having the potential for huge multipliers means that the base wins are on the smaller side. This is balanced out over time – especially during the free spins game where you get more and more ‘overlay wilds’ as you move through the levels.
The biggest regular win comes from hitting 5 of the Jetta symbols (the pink haired lady), this will get you 150 coins, with 75 coins for 4 and 25 coins for 3. The impressive car is next at 90 coins for 5, a prize shared with the ugly ‘bruiser’, the final opponent for the free spins game. The cigar smoking Hamaki comes next with the hooded ‘Twitch’ the final unique symbol. Smaller wins are made up by the very metallic looking playing cards.
Nitro Collect Free Spins Bonus
Scatter symbols, which appear to show a shadowy gang facing you, only appear on the middle 3 reels. Hitting all 3 of these will set up the complex and entertaining free spins bonus game which has extra elements involved in the game play. First you will see the car which sits at the bottom left of the reels drive off. You then see a picture with Jetta on the left and ‘Twitch’ on the right (this reappears with different opponents later on).
During the free spins there are extra symbols which contain 3 yellow arrows and the word ‘nitro’ on them. These appear only on the middle reels. To the left of the reels is a meter showing 4 different levels (each being an opponent, with ‘Bruiser’ taking the last 2 stages). As you collect Nitro symbols, they move to the left, filling the meter. As you hit 3, you move up a level, drive against a different opponent and get extra free spins. There is a road sequence where you approach a distant city in between each level.
Each new level also brings you an extra multiplier wild. These are randomly assigned a position on the reels and a multiplier each time. If you reach the 4th and final level, then you will have 3 of these overlay wilds on the reels for every spin.
The blurred, out of focus city lights behind the transparent reels and movement effects of the fast car on the bottom left combine to make this slot a visual treat. The symbols are clean and vivid, with the shiny playing card symbols used to good effect. Each of the characters is cartoon-line, though detailed and a little sinister looking. By contrast, the multiplier wilds are bright and have a light reflecting look to them.
In the background a synth pop type track plays, which is interspersed with driving type noises. Animations kick in when you hit the free spins bonus round. While the graphics are effective, not too much happens other than driving down a long straight road. Things are fast in general for this game, though during the free spins round they get even faster.
Drive Multiplier Mayhem Slot Setup
This slot only uses 15 win-lines over the 5 by 3 grid – you can bet from 2x per line and up, with up to 10 coins possible per line. You can choose auto-play and configure the graphics quality and the sounds too.
In some ways this slot tries a little too hard to be ‘tough’ for me, though it is certainly solid in terms of the game-play and the features. The multiplier wilds can kick in at any time – it only needs a couple to turn an ordinary win into a big one. The multi-level free spins bonus game is where your best opportunities will come in. When you hit the top levels and get extra spins as well as overlay multiplier wilds, the combinations can get large!
