Drive Multiplier Mayhem is themed around an underground street racing scene. In a night, lit by the lights of a distant city, the four racers Jette Twitch, Hamaki and Bruiser, push done up cars to their limits as the tarmac hurtles underfoot, and tire. This street racing subculture, of pink cars and big hair, was created by Net Entertainment, for this pokie. And it has no tether to any existing street racing popular culture.
Net Entertainment is one of the big boys in the online pokie world. They are arguably the better pokie developer out there. They produce games, with remarkable graphics, and large jackpots.
Their games are often the most eagerly anticipated, of the year. Their titles are comparable to the blockbusters of pokies . Their European online casino market share, is approximately 31%.
The company began in 1996, out of Scandinavia’s land based operator known as Cherry. Land based pokie machines were ruled too dangerous and made illegal. This legislation was the push that created Net Entertainment, one of the largest pokie companies in the world.
This is a beautiful game. Net Entertainment does exactly that, they make beautiful games, and this one is no exception.
The background image for the Base Game is a distant city, lighting up the nights of the street races. It is not a static background, which always goes a long way towards improving the overall game aesthetics. There is a pink car to the left of the reels that is animated into motion, along a moving road.
The reels are not bordered but simply layered, over the top of the background. The panel has a simplistic design and the Spin Button is located in the middle of the panel. High value symbols in this slot are the racers and the low value symbols are numbers and letters.
The Free Spins Game has a different design. Instead of the city background, the reels spin over the top of a drag race. There is a fast moving road behind the reels and two cars race side by side, animated to pull in front and fall behind, one another.
How to play
Drive Multiplier Mayhem, is a five reel slot. The player spins the reels to make winning paylines, using the spin button. And bets can be adjusted for the next spin, whenever the reels are not in motion.
It is a 15 payline game, and paylines are made left to right, meaning the first symbol in a payline has to be in the furthest reel to the left. As is common in Net Entertainment games, the player can adjust the bet level and the coin value, to increase or lower their bet.
The most noteworthy feature, in Drive Multiplier Mayhem is the Multiplying Wilds. A Multiplying Wild works by multiplying the value of a payline in which the Wild is included. The Wild will also substitute any symbol, to make the highest available payline, except scatters.
There is up to a 5x multiplier and each reel has its own multiplier, except the first reel, which has a normal Wild. The multiplier ascends in value as it is found left to right on the reels. That’s is a bit confusing, so to clarify, on the second reel there is a 2x multiplier, on the third there is a 3x multiplier, so on and so forth, until the 5x multiplier on the fifth reel. The Multiplying Wilds will also multiply one another if, for example, a 4x multiplier lands next to a 5x multiplier, the corresponding multiplier will be 20x the payline.
The Free Spins Game is unlocked by landing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels. The Free Spins Game is played at the bet that unlocked it. The city background is replaced by a fast moving road and the player enters into a drag race.
The player races as Jette, a pink haired female, and by collecting Boost Symbols wins the race. Three Boost Symbols wins a race and wins the player additional free spins. The player moves up the peeking order as they race Twitch, Hamaki, and Bruiser.
The highest five in a row pay-out, is 150 credits. This is a sizeable win but by no means is it the best, this game has to offer. If the player is lucky enough to land the highest symbol on the first reel and a Multiplying Wild on the other 4 reels that equates to 1200x stake.
At max bet, 1200x, €75 is a massive €90,000. The Free Spins Game has extra Wilds. Making the highest possible win 5,109x stake in the Free Spins Game or €383,175.
This is a great game. The best title Net Ent have put out in a long time. There are some great special features like the Multiplying Wilds, available in the Base Game.
And the game has phenomenal winning potential. Top this off with an exceptional Free Spins Game and outstanding graphics, and this slot begins to sets standards and raises expectations. Everyone should play this game.
