Mad Cars Slot Bonus Features
Push Gaming has spared no expense when it comes to the bonus features on offer in Mad Cars. First things first, players will want to acquaint themselves with the Boost Reel, which is an additional row that sits above the reels. This will spin with the rest of the reels, and it can display boost symbols for the Instant-Prize Car Symbols.
Speaking of which, these are symbols that will land on the bottom row of the grid and then advance their way up with the help of the boosters. They stick to the reels unless there are multiple on the grid and one of them crosses the finish line first. The finish line is displayed on the top row.
To advance up the grid, the Instant-Prize cars will need the boosts. The Gas Symbol helps them move up, while Multiplier Symbols can land on the boost reel and help improve the multiplier. There is also a Multiplier and Gas Symbol that can do both of these things. A Survivor Symbol can also be applied to a car, and this ensures it will stick if another symbol passes the line first.
The game also has a special Scatter Car. When this passes the top row, the aptly titled Mad Bonus is launched. When this happens, players start with seven free spins, and five Instant-Prize Cars are placed on the bottom row of the grid, with all other symbols removed.
The Boost Reel is the key here. It works the same as in the base game, only with the addition of four extra symbols and the removal of the Survivor. The Line-Up Symbol will bring all cars into the position of the one highest up the grid, the Persistent Payer will give value to all other symbols while it remains on the reels, while the Persistent Collector collects values from all of the other cars until it leaves the reels, and the Persistent Payer and collect is a combination of both. It is also worth noting that any time a car passes the line, an additional spin is added to the reels.
Finally, at the end of the round, the Mad Race bonus can trigger. When this happens, all cars on the reels cross the line and pay out.
If you don’t want to wait for your car to cross the finish line and want to jump straight into the bonus rounds, then this is an option, with the slot allowing you to buy a Bonus Round with different modifiers active. However, this won’t be available in all territories.
