Mad Dash is a desert racing themed slot machine, a cool title from Microgaming which you can expect to offer a lot graphics wise, but it doesn’t do too bad in the feature arena either. Play this game, and you will get from it racing buggies, piloted by various animals, including coyotes, rabbits or turtles. The feature list also delivers plenty, including on it the free spins, the multipliers, scatters and wilds that are so popular in modern titles. You can win at most $40,000 from this slot, which has 5 reels & 20 win lines.
Betting and Prizes
The game isn’t shy about its use of coins in wagers. A maximum of 20 coins per line can be used, and with 20 lines active you can end up wagering 400 coins for just one spin. Luckily, the coin value only goes from $0.01 to $0.25, so you can’t spend more than $100 for a single spin.
The biggest prize of the base game, worth $20,000, comes from a scatter icon which pays 200x the bet. The second best thing is at 2,000x the line bet, offered by a regular combo and worth $10,000. Multipliers from the free spins could take it to $40,000.
Mad Dash Slot Features
The wild symbol is always a popular choice in any slot machine, and it has its role to fill here as well. It is represented in the game by the Mad Dash Logo and it is used in two ways, the same two which it takes in most games. First, it behaves like a substitute, capable of helping you with the formation of new combinations when it lands next to regular symbols. Second, it can pay directly by forming a combo out of wilds, giving up to 2,000x when it does this.
There is a trophy involved in this race as well, a golden one which has a dune buggy on top. This would be the symbol with the ability to appear scattered on the reels, and yet still capable of giving away good prizes, of up to 200x the wager. When there are a minimum of three Trophies on the reels, a bonus feature starts, giving you 10 to 25 free spins and 4x multipliers applied to all wins.
Theme & Design
The theme appears to be inspired by dune buggies which are raced across the desert by animal characters. We get the turtle, the bunny and the coyote in the three roles, along with a trophy and a logo for special features. The poker cards are less impressive, but still beautifully decorated. It’s a good design, with cartoon characters that look happy and very well drawn.
Mad Dash Microgaming slot delivers an interesting bit of action, it has generous features and prizes which can get to decent sizes in certain circumstances.
