Head to a garage like no other in Winner’s Car Wash, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Novomatic. The full service here offers symbol upgrades, added scattered and stacked wilds as well as a feature round that awards up to 18 free spins. Play from between 20p and £50 per spin.

The design in Winner’s Car is best described as functional – a thing of beauty it ain’t. That’s par for the course with a Novomatic slot. Symbols include bubbly A to 10 playing cards, cherries (bizarrely), bottles of oil, tyres, a sports car and a pair of buxom car wash attendants. The top paying symbol is the Winner’s Car Wash logo which is the game’s wild – 5 of these on a payline will get you a payout equal to 50 times your total stake.

So far, so standard Novomatic. Winner’s Car Wash offers more than the norm when it comes to features though. Keep a special eye out for the red, green and blue signs which appear on reel 5 only and add a mini feature:

  • The Soap Trigger feature – land the red sign on reel 5 to trigger this extra. Here all the lower value 10, J and Q symbol are upgraded to a more valuable symbol. A new payout is then made with the upgraded symbols in place.
  • The Wash Trigger feature – the blue sign triggers this extra. A random selection of symbols will then be turned into wilds. A new payout is then made.
  • The Wax Trigger feature – you need to land the green sign on reel 5 to activate this one. 1, 2 or 3 buffers will then roll onto the reels. They will move over symbols and turn them into wilds. Once again, a new payout is made with the extra wilds in position.

Winner’s Car Wash also comes with a Deluxe Wash Free Games feature – land the Bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger this feature. If you land 2 bonus symbols, you’ll be awarded a re-spin which gives you a second chance to trigger the free spins. Once triggered, you’ll be awarded 9 free spins.

You’re guaranteed to land the Soap Trigger feature during the first 3 free spins. The Wash Trigger will land on free spins 4, 5 and 6 with the Wax Trigger feature guaranteed to hit during the final 3 free spins. You can re-trigger more free spins too if the Bonus symbol lands on the odd numbered reels on the same spin.

As far as volatility goes, Winner’s Car Wash sits in the medium range, offering a balance of payouts. This slot certainly doesn’t shine in the visuals department. The imagery is done cartoon style and isn’t as good as what you’ll find from many other developers.

The features are solid enough though. The mini extras come into their own during the free spins round. Get lucky with the symbol upgrades and added wilds and you could clean up by visiting the Winner’s Car Wash.
