|Online Slot Machine||Drive: Multiplier Mayhem|
|Slot Provider||NetEnt Casino Software|
It is Tuesday 23rd of February and Drive: Multiplier Mayhem has launched without much of a fuss. NetEnt must have learned from their over the top release of the disappointing GNR slot last month.
What’s it all about?
Well this is obviously a slot in the style of Need for Speed or Fast and Furious. And it really does look and sound the business. They have designed this slot perfectly to suit the subject matter and the speed at which the slot plays is also perfectly in keeping.
The wilds with the speedometers on them work really well as do the Nitro symbols in the feature game. In fact everything about this slot works perfectly giving it the look and feel of a real high octane video game.
How does it play and pay?
The multiplier wilds during the base game keeps your bank balance ticking along steadily and you can land some decent if not spectacular wins during normal play when you land a good combination of multiplier wilds. But all in all the base game is often quite happy to eat its way through your bankroll if you are not careful.
But it’s in the Free Spins feature where the real money is potentially at. Stage 1 doesn’t really amount to much so you need to be hoping for lots of nitro’s to boost you to level 3 at least. You get one free overlay wild on stage 2, 2 on stage 3 and 3 on stage 4. Potentially on stage 4 you could land wilds on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 which if all on the same payline would equal 2x3x4x5 (120) times your line win.
This is a very good slot. It is probably (in my opinion) the best looking slot that NetEnt have released in a good long while. The action really does come thick and fast, particularly for those of you who like to play in Quick Spin mode.
The only danger with this slot is that you can very easily lose track of what’s going on exactly because it is so fast. Certainly a slot worth repeat plays but getting the hang of bankroll management whilst playing this slot is going to prove a challenge. So far we have been very lucky during testing starting off with some great runs of wins… but after the fast start we did give a lot of our winnings back to the game after losing track things.
Second look: bankroll eater
Having spent a lot more time on this slot we have decided to ditch it. In our first session we got lucky but ever since then this slot has done nothung but drain the bankroll. The free spins come very few and far between even though it continually teases with two scatters. We have often been averaging almost 300 spins between free spins and the free spins wins rarely get close to even 100x stake. And during normal play this slot just eats and eats your bank balance.
I am sure there is a 1000x stake win hidden in here somewhere but we are not going to hang around any longer trying to fund it. It just doesn’t seem worth it. Such a shame as a more evenly paying slot would have been hugely popular with this theme.
We are not sure what is happening over at NetEnt but the signs are not what we would have hoped recently with most of their recent offerings being a complete turn-off. What a shame.
