Wheelspin Wild Feature

During the base game, Wheelspin Wilds can land randomly on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Once a Wheelspin Wild is present, it will roll off the reel towards the left, transforming all High-paying Car symbols into Wilds. 

During this feature, a +1 Multiplier is applied to any Wheelspin Wild or High-paying symbol that has already been transformed. Wilds substitute for all symbols in the paytable, except Scatters.

Hot Rod Racers Free Spins

Landing 3 Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10 Free Spins. 

During the Free Spins round, the Wheelspin Wilds feature is active and each time a Wild symbol lands across the reels, it will hold in place, triggering its feature on every Free Spin as long as there is High-paying symbols to the left of it to transform.

Super Free Spins

Relax Gaming has also thrown in a Super Free Spins round, which will be awarded when Nitro Wild symbols land on reels 1 and 5 at the same time as 3 Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4.

During the Super Free Spins round, the Wheelspin Wilds feature is active and each time a Wild symbol lands on the reels, it will hold in place for the duration of the Bonus round.

In Super Free Spins, each symbol position that is transformed will be supplied with a +1 Multiplier every time a Wild is transformed in that position. The Multiplier is also active when a Wild symbol lands ir is transformed in that specific position. Multipliers are capped at x5 and will multiply each other when more than one forms a winning combination.

Hot Rod Racers Bonus Buy

For those of you who are outside the UK, you will benefit from a Bonus Buy option.

Relax Gaming has granted players access to both the Free Spins and Super Free Spins round for a total cost of 80x and 400x your current bet respectively.

When purchasing either of the Free Spins rounds, the RTP increases slightly from 96.00% to 96.50%.

Hot Rod Racers: Our Verdict

Although Relax Gaming has done a fantastic job at setting the stage for the race ahead, it leaves little to the imagination at first and takes a little while for the engine to warm up so to speak.

Once the engine is warmed up and ready, gameplay take a surprising turn thanks to the Wheelspin Wilds feature. The Wheelspin Wilds feature is not the most riveting of features we’ve come across, but it does well to spark our interests and keeps gameplay interesting.

Of course the Free Spins round is where the real action takes place, which sees the Wheelspin Wilds feature go one better than the base game by making all Wilds sticky on the reels. To further boost performance, Relax Gaming has thrown in a Super Free Spins round which can trigger randomly in the base game, without needing to purchase it through the Bonus Buy, making this game a lot more appealing to players in the UK.

The regular Free Spins round offers plenty of potential, but the Super Free Spins round is where the big money is at. This is down to the Wheelspin Wilds feature activating a sticky x1 Multiplier for every position that is transformed by a Wild symbol, which increases each time a new High-paying symbol is transformed in the same position.

All in all, Hot Rod Racers is a brilliant addition to Relax Gaming’s portfolio and caters to all kinds of players worldwide.
