Petrol heads and those who love anything to do with cars will more than likely enjoy this slot game offering from provider Genii which takes you on an adventure across Route 66 enjoying the sweeping landscapes and pitstops along the way, but does the gameplay live up to it’s theme? Find out in our review below.
Road Trip Max Ways is a 5×3 playboard of people and items you would come across as your make your way through Route 66, like friendly truckers or fellow travellers. For those who have dreamed about taking this famous trip but who haven’t managed to get out there and do it yet, this is the next best thing.
Visually speaking, Road Trip Max Ways could be described as a tad rough around the edges but that’s probably done on purpose to fit with the theme. The concept wouldn’t be particularly authentic if you put together a roadside diner with glittering playing characters, so there are dirty looking fry cooks and plenty of ketchup stains on tables to set an appropriate tone for game play. There isn’t much in terms of sound effects or background music during gameplay sessions so you may need to source your own music if you prefer to have something on in the background while you spin.
One thing to note with this slot is that we have seen contrasting reports when it comes to the RTP rate and so we would recommend exercising caution when starting off your spins to get a feel for the game and how volatile it is. Slots these days all tend to have a fairly competitive RTP with the average coming in around 95% so we would could hazard a guess it would be somewhere close to this figure, but doing your own research around this may be a good idea.
To get some wins you need to pick up a minimum of three matching symbols along one of the nine paylines. Depending which symbol you get will determine the level of prize on offer with low paying symbols being coffee and donuts where as the higher value symbols are waitresses, drivers and trucks. Trucks are the real gems here as they can add a whopping 7,500x multiplier if you can land five of them in one spin.
The saloon car is the game’s wild symbol that appears on the 2nd and 4th reels. If you are just a few matching symbols short of winning, your salvation can often be found by this red symbol. You’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for the Route 66 road sign that never strays too far away from all of this action, which will help you maximize multipliers and score some tasty rewards!
The game’s setting feels like a classic US truck stop and diner. The animations are wild, which we really liked when the expanded reels feature came into play. If you want to have a feel for what an American road trip is all about, this might just be your thing!
