Cash Collect Feature

During any random spin in the base game, special Cash Bag symbols with cash values between 2x and 30x can land randomly across reels 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Cash Bag symbols are invaluable until you land a Cash Collect symbol on reel 5 at the same time as any Cash Bag symbols. Once this happens, the Cash Collect symbol will collect all cash values on any present Cash Bag symbols and award the total amount.

Please note, the Cash Collect feature is not available during the Free Spins round.

Robber Free Spins Trigger

If during the base game, 2 Scatters land in view on reels 1, and 3, there is a chance the 5th reel will Respin, for a chance to land the 3rd Scatter needed to trigger the Free Spins round.

Highway Legends Free Spind Options

Highway Legends Free Spins

Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 automatically triggers the Free Spins round, where you will get to choose between 2 Free Spins options: Stacked Wild Hold Up Free Spins and Roaming Rider Wilds Free Spins, both of which award 10 Free Spins.

Roaming Rider Wilds Free Spins

During this round, any Wilds that land in view will hold over for the next Free Spin. Wilds that are held for the next spin can move around the reels, changing their positions before the reels stop, up to a maximum of 13 Wilds.

Stacked Wild Hold Up Free Spins

During this round, Stacked Wilds can be added to 1 or more reels, up to a maximum of 5 during each Free Spin. Any stacked wilds present will spin off on the next spin. A stacked Wild will represent 3 individual Wilds.

Highway Legends: Our Verdict

Highway Legends, at first glance, looks to be a continuation of Play’n GO’s Arthurian Legends series, but apart from the periodic theme, there are no Kings or Queens in sight here.

Play’n GO always bring out the best in their slots in terms of design, with a very detailed backdrop and modern graphics, but did gameplay follow suit?

Having an exciting feature or two to keep you interested in the base game is vital in any slot, and Play’n GO has done so thanks to the Cash Collect feature. At first, we thought we had another tedious Hold & Win slot on our hands, but we were wrong.

The Cash Collect feature is as much brutal as it is thrilling, with Cash Bags appearing quite often but only able to cash in on them with the help of a Cash Collect symbol landing on reel 5.

The Cash Collect feature is one we’ve come across before, and although it’s not the most enlightening of features, it’s a great way to top up the balance and a good distraction whilst you wait for the Free Spins round to trigger.

Play’n GO has given players the chance to choose their destiny in the form of 2 Free Spins options. Will you opt for Stacked or Sticky Wilds? Both Free Spins rounds offer a max win cap of 1,250x, which is a little unsettling and not quite the figure we had hoped for.

Overall. Highway Legends seems a little tame from Play’n GO, but there are some thrilling moments to be had if given a chance.
