As you may have guessed from the name of this Amaya slot game, this slot takes you to the motor racing track for some high-speed action. On the reels you’ll find fast cars, motorbikes and crash helmets alongside a set of playing cards related checkered flags. The highlight of this slot is a free spins bonus round where you’ll find a good number of spins and an impressive multiplier – this is a feature you’ll certainly want to land.
This Amaya designed motor racing themed slot has a total of five reels, each of the reels three symbols high. This slot pays from left to right but enjoys the ‘all-ways’ winning system, as opposed to the more standard win line setup. This means that you’ll win when symbols appear on consecutive reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on those reels. This means that players will have 243 ways to win on every spin (3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3), giving many more opportunities of landing a win.
The control panel is found beneath the reels and this has a similar dynamic feel to the game itself. The spin button is a wheel of a car and when the reels spins the wheel does too. The auto spin option is found to the right of the spin button and this will bring up options for the reels to spin for 10, 25, 50 or 100 spins, while the final option is for the slot to continue until you hit a feature.
The highest paying symbol in the game is a red Formula One style car, which many recognize as a Ferrari. Land this symbol on all five reels and a pay-out of 5,000 coins will be heading your way. A touring car style sports car is next on the pay table and this has a maximum win amount of 3,000 coins, while a blue motorbike complete with rider is worth 2,000 coins. A crash helmet pays 1,000 coins and a modern steering wheel complete with a series of buttons has a top prize of 500 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the flag backed playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol is represented by the title / logo of the game and this will only make an appearance on reels 2 and 4. This will substitute for any other symbol in the game. While it might seem disappointing that the wild only appears on two reels, a single wild can enable many wins in an all-ways slot, so it can become very valuable.
The bonus symbol in the game is a gold trophy flanked by green laurels. This symbol acts as a scatter and you’ll win an immediate prize if this appears 2 or more times across any of the reels. Hit 2 and you’ll win 25 credits, while 3, 4 or 5 scatters pay 50, 250 or 2,500 coins respectively.
More importantly than this instant prize perhaps is the fact that three or more scatters will also see you gain entry into the free spins bonus feature. This will see you awarded with a total of 15 free spins, which is impressive in itself. What makes this feature even better is the fact that any wins during the spins will be multiplied by three. During the feature, if you manage to land three or more scatters again, 15 more spins will be added to the existing total.
The backdrop to the reels of this high-speed slot shows a chequeen flag draped around the reels. The game has an eye-catching black and red color scheme, while all of the symbols are nicely designed – although you would never say this slot as polished looking as many more modern looking slots today. The accompanying soundtrack sounds like the credits to a motor racing themed show, very fitting and adding to the atmosphere of the game.
Grand Prix is a slot which will appeal to fans of motor racing, but whether it will have any wider appeal is the question. While the game has a striking look at first, it is a solid slot rather than a fancy or original one. Nevertheless, with the all-ways winning system and the 15 free spins with the 3x multiplier, this might be worth a spin.
