Betsafe Casino has added a brand new title from Leander Games today, the Taxi Slot is based on the hit TV series which was originally shown on TV back in the seventies and early eighties.
The slot features all of the popular characters and of course lots of Taxi related bonus rounds too, the base game is set in 5×3 reel layout and uses 25 fixed paylines. The base game has fairly standard paytable, in our playtests we would gauge that the slot seems around medium variance, although the biggest win potential is definitely going to be the Free Spins Bonus Round.
Taxi Slot Bonus Rounds
There are 3 main bonus rounds that can be triggered from the base game.
- Let’s Get this Garage Moving Bonus, which is triggered by landing 3 Bonus Symbols on reels 2,3,4
- Flag This Down Bonus, which is triggered by landing the Instant Prize Bonus Symbol on reel 3
- Make it out the Garage Free Spins Bonus Round, which is triggered by landing the Free Spins symbol on reels 1,3,5
Let’s Get this Garage Moving Bonus is a simple picking round, you must pick the correct drivers license in order to move to the next pick, in total have 3 incorrect picks before you have a final multiplier pick up to 5x. (98x Max Win)
Flag This Down, is an instant win bonus round, hail the taxi and win a cash prize until the X appears on the sign, multiple Taxi rides can be triggered increasing the total win. (42x Max Win)
Make it out the Garage Free Spins Bonus Round is where the biggest win potential is, once triggered the player is granted an initial 10 free spins with only regular wilds on the reels.
The main thing to look for here is a Telephone Symbol landing on reel 5, this grants an extra 2 Free Spins but also turns 1 of the characters onto the reels into a wild for the remaining spins.
In total, you can get a maximum of 20 Free Spins during this round and turn every single character symbol on the reels into a wild symbol.
The RTP for this slot is stated as being 94.62%.
Overall it’s not a bad game and will appeal to fans of the TV series although we are a little surprised at the lowish RTP given it seems to be a fairly low-medium variance slot, as long as you are hitting the bonus rounds fairly frequently though it seems to play fine.
