Take a journey through the most interesting taxi ride you will receive in your life through playing the Amaya themed slot, Taxi. It is a 5 reel game slot and it has 25 fixed paylines. The setting of the entire game is within the windshield of the taxi. Interesting right?
The game has a multiplier that is random along with a multiplying scatter symbol, and a Free Ride Bonus. All of this adds up to a payout being received and not one being made.
Hailing- Taxis are kind of an unusual theme for a video slot. This is a game that holds features that are true to the actual theme of this game. If you are a car enthusiast then this game is perfect for you. Once the spin button is clicked, the sound of the car’s engine rings through out loud and there are other sound effects along with it. Those other sounds include different musical flourishes, horns blowing, and engines revving.
Those who are very familiar with slots will notice the standard symbols like A, K, J, 10, and K. Each of these symbols are shapes of different road signs. In this game, the drivers ID has the same value as the A. The mid-range symbols have a stack of luggage and a traffic light that is electric. A customer symbol that has waving in it is the next highest value. Then the next one is followed by the cab driver. The steering panel wild is the highest financial reward out of the taxi symbols. Not only does it have the highest financial reward, but it also acts as a standard wild. The wild symbol can replace all symbols outside of the taxi meter which is the scatter and the symbols in the Free Ride Bonus.
Advanced Features of the Game- A random multiplier pops up on any spin that is a win and it makes the game more fun. This random multiplier appears as a landscape and it stretches across the reels. When it stretches across the reels, a black London cab drives by. It drives by before a number appears and reveals which multiplier was won. Guess what? The figure can be as high as 5x. However, it can be as low as 2x.
The Free Ride Bonus- The Free Ride Bonus can be triggered more than one way. One way is through the Taxi meter Scatter symbols. Those symbols appear on reels 1, 3, or 5. When there are three that show up, the player has to pick one. Then the value of the prize is revealed on the meter’s screen. There are times in which a number is not shown and instead the player would have to open the Free Ride Bonus up.
Another way the bonus is triggered is through the Bonus symbol that is green and red. This symbol appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 in a simultaneously manner. Once this begins the windshield wipers wipes the screen and then 5 free spins are given out. Between each spin, the wipers clean the screen. While the windshield wipers are cleaning the screen, anywhere in between 1 to 5 wilds are added in random positions. The extra amount of wild symbols can largely increase the amount that had been won during the free spins.
The Bet Lines- The bet lines are fixed in this game. This means that all players have to bet on all 25 lines each time they spin. The likeliness of winning depends on how much is being put at risk. In regards to the wagers for each spin, the game provides a lot of flexibility. A player can start at the very minimum and make a 0.02 credit value bet while applying 1 credit for each line for a bet that is worth $25.00. On the other hand, a player can bet at the 1.00 credit value with going as high as 5 credits for each line. This would make the max bet be 125.00.
This is a type of slot that likes to give out a lot of small prizes on the regular. The game is perfect for those who like to have frequent gratification when they are playing a slot. It is hard to be able to receive access to the Free Ride Bonus, but when it does occur it is worth it for the most part. The music that is played in the background is very happy and the graphics also play a role in why this game is fun. Even though slots with a car theme is not common, Amaya definitely did right by this game. This game along with their other car themed slot Fast Track is satisfying. It has all of the needed factors that can make a slot enjoyable.
