Rev up your engine and hit the road in Lucky Lanes, an unusual motoring-themed slot from WMS and Red 7. Played using a 3 reel, 10 payline game engine, it comes with a re-triggerable bonus round that awards 10 free spins with stacked wilds. Play on all devices from between 10p and £200 per spin.
The design here is more akin to a video game than a slot machine. Rather than spinning reels, the symbols drive into position on each ‘spin’. You’ll see red, orange, yellow and purple cars as well as a tractor, a taxi and a police car. The best paying symbol is the dollar car which will get you 20 times your total stake if you land 3 on a payline.
The hazard sign is the wild. This replaces all of the standard symbols as well as awarding payouts of 50 times your stake for a 3-symbol combo. On any base game spin, you could see a helicopter appears. This drops extra wild hazard signs onto the reels. A new payout calculation then follows with the extra wilds in play.
The Free Games Truck is the scatter. Land 3 of these on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins feature. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. The single hazard wilds are removed from play during the feature. Instead you’ll see 3-high stacked wilds.
Landing 3 Free Games Truck symbols on the same spin results in a retrigger and another round of 10 free spins (with no limits). If you have won less than 10 times your total stake during the feature, the Bonus Round Guarantee comes into play. You’ll then win 10 times your stake rather than the lower value amount.
Lucky Lanes also offers a chance to win 1 of 3 progressive jackpot prizes. These can trigger at random on any spin. The Minor Jackpots pays between £1 and £1,500. The Major pays between £5,000 and £20,000 with the Epic Jackpot paying between £20,000 and £200,000.
This is a very simple and slightly strange little slot. The design is well done but the gameplay is rather limited. It can deliver some decent action though. We won’t be taking to the Lucky Lanes regularly but this journey can provide an entertaining diversion every now and again. If you like the racing theme, Playtech’s Wheels N’ Reels is superb and offers payouts of up to 100,000 times your stake on each free spin.
