5 Reel Drive
5 Reel Drive is a Microgaming game, which is inspired by life on the open road, by road trips and by the truckers that drive on the highways of United States all the time. The images of the slot include lots of things that you would find on those highways, or at least in diners where you stop to grab a bite to eat. The slot sports 5 reels, but has only 9 paylines on them. As for the big prize, it’s a decent amount, and at 10,000x it can bring you a payout of $20,000.
Betting & Jackpots
The wagers placed in 5 Reel Drive will cover 1 to 9 paylines, that’s one decision that is left up to the player, and the value of those bets will vary between $0.25 and $2. You can bet at most $18 on one spin, with all 9 lines covered.
The game has impressive jackpots, offering 10,000x the line bet, meaning as much as $20,000 in this slot machine. The Flaming Tire icon is the one that pays you that much, if it forms a five symbol combo.
The first of the symbols which have features to offer would be the wild, which has an image with a road sign on it. This symbol has to land on the payline where you need it, or it can’t be of help. Wild symbols will substitute for most symbols, but not for scatters, and will help you get winning combinations.
The other symbol, the scatter, gets as an image a police car. The role of such a symbol is to appear somewhere in the game, it doesn’t matter where, and to award you a prize which can be at 5x the bet, 20x the bet or 50x the bet (depending on how many symbols triggered it, being needed 3, 4 or 5).
As far as the design goes, I doubt many people would be impressed with the graphics used in this game. The use of 9 paylines will tell you immediately that it’s one of their older slot machines, and this shows in the overall design as well, even though it’s not a bad looking title. I appreciated that only themed icons are in use here, including truckers, drivers and various foods that you might try at a highway diner (pie, burgers, fries, coke, coffee and bagels).
The slot’s jackpot is the most attractive part, the rest of the area being mostly average. This applies to the design and to the list of features which were included.
