Pedal Power manages to be one of the more original games that Microgaming has released so far, even though it’s part of a collection of more than 500 slot machines. It’s a cyclism themed game, one where the focus is on professional competitors, and not on amateurs. You see the usual trophies, the cyclists dressed in professional equipment and competing on bikes, and you have overall a game that is a must try for a fan of the genre. Wild symbols are in the game, and they are accompanied by scatters and free spins with big multipliers. You have 15 lines only, 5 reels, along with payouts which reach $4,000.
Betting and Prizes
You get to use a lot of coins in your wagers, but their value will be very small, the highest denomination reaching $0.10, while the minimum one is at $0.01. You do have up to 20 coins to use for every single line, so you can wager with 300 coins total, and still spend only $30 for one round.
The most impressive payout available in Pedal Power will get to 2,000x, which will mean a value of up to $4,000 from the 40,000 coins which they can bring you.
Pedal Power Slot Features
First of all, let’s check out the Trophy, the wild symbol of Pedal Power. The feature can be used as expected, acting as a replacement for another symbol if the location is the right one, but it will also be your way to the jackpot of the game, offering 2,000x for a combo of five wilds.
The Watch with the heartbeat monitoring function will be the one other symbol you need to take advantage of. You have a scatter here, a symbol that you will use from whatever position it appears, as long as there are two or more present. You win prizes that range from 1x to 100x the wager for 2 to 5 scatters.
You also trigger a free spins feature with the scatter’s help, and then you pick a mix of spins and multipliers. You can get 5 free spins with multipliers at 10x, or 10 spins with 5x multipliers, or 25 spins with 2x multipliers.
Theme & Design
Pedal Power slot is inspired by the word of cyclism, and it does a fairly good job with the symbols which are themed appropriately, using images of bikers, of poker cards with equipment next to them, or things like trophies. The design style looks older though, not modern enough, but it shouldn’t be a problem if you’re a fan of the sport.
Pedal Power machine gets you the right theme if you’re a cyclist yourself, and this should be enough for most people, especially since features can look very good. Without those features, the payouts are too low though.
