NASCAR Slot Machine

Play for Free

NASCAR is one of America’s most popular sports, so it came as no surprise when Bally Technologies decided to bring the racing league’s unique brand of excitement to casino floors. This five-reel machine features multiple bonus rounds, a wide-area progressive, and lots of authentic clips and sounds from NACAR broadcasts.


Interesting NASCAR Facts

I’ve followed NASCAR for years, and I’ve picked up plenty of facts and trivia during that time. If you want to impress your fellow racing fans, try dropping a few of these while watching your next stock car event.

  • The long version of NASCAR is the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing.
  • There are no headlights, taillights, or front grilles on a NASCAR car. These are simulated using decals.
  • When a NASCAR car reaches a speed of 200 mph, it nearly travels the length of a football field in a single second.
  • Before exiting their cars, NASCAR drivers pour water or Gatorade over themselves to mask the fact that they’ve urinated in their pants during the race (things move too fast for a standard bathroom break).
  • While racers must pass a physical and drug test, a regular driver’s license isn’t required.
  • The points system for events sanctioned by NASCAR was originally written on a bar room napkin.
  • NASCAR donates all money collected from fines to a variety of charitable organizations.
  • Because of extreme temperatures and sweating, it’s not unusual for a NASCAR driver to lose between five and 10 pounds of weight during a given race.
  • NASCAR was founded by William H.G. France Sr., a stock car driver and gas station owner from Daytona Beach, Florida.
  • The first female driver to participate in a Winston Cup race was Janet Guthrie in 1976 (where she finished in 15th place).

Pick Your Car and Driver

When the game begins, you’ll be asked to choose from one of five NASCAR drivers. This will be your character for the rest of the session, and the game changes to show both their icon and the color/number of their car. Here are your choices:

  • Jimmie Johnson – The driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports. The first and only driver in NASCAR history to win five consecutive Cup Series championships. In 2016, he won his seventh championship and tied Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Richard Petty for the most career titles.
  • Kevin Harvick – Driving the No. 29 car, Harvick competes in both the NASCAR Cup Series and the Xfinity Series. He won the former in 2014, and he’s a two-time champion in the latter. Known for his late-passing wins, Harvick has earned the moniker of “The Closer.”
  • Clint Bowyer – While he currently drives the No. 14 Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing, Bowyer was in the No. 15 car when this slot was released. He’s the winner of the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series, as well as the Sprint Showdown in 2014 and 2015. Bowyer owns a customized camouflage limo, which he featured during a guest appearance on TV’s Duck Dynasty.
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr. – The driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports and the No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro for JR Motorsports, “Junior” has long been a fan favorite. He won the Most Popular Driver award 14 years in a row, as well as a picking up a pair of victories in the Daytona 500.
  • Jeff Gordon – Now retired, Gordon drove the No. 24 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports in 23 seasons from 1993 to 2015. He’s a four-time Sprint Cup champion, as well as a three-time winner of the Daytona 500. His 93 Cup wins are the most successful in the modern era of NASCAR, and he’s routinely regarded as one of the greatest drivers to ever get behind the wheel.

Bonus Features

Bally’s NASCAR game has a total of three bonus features that can be activated during gameplay. These include the following:

Burnout Free Games Bonus

When this game is activated, the player gets to interact with Bally’s patented U-Spin technology. A wheel of fortune appears, and you’ll be able to determine its speed and direction by swiping your hand across the screen.

All the spaces on the wheel relate to free games. Some options just award spins, while others include multipliers, extra wilds, or locking wilds.

The Pit Stop Bonus Pick’em

In order to activate this bonus, you’ll need to land the Pit Stop symbol on reels two, three, and four. When this occurs, you’ll be taken to a grid featuring 15 lug nuts and asked to choose five.

To choose a lug nut, just touch the screen. This reveals the prize hidden behind the symbol, which consists of credit values or upgrades. When an upgrade is found, it increases the player’s overall payout. Get all four upgrades to capture the maximum bonus of 64,000 credits.

URace Bonus

This feature is activated when then URace Bonus icon appears on the first, third, and fifth reels of the base game. The bonus involves driving a virtual car in a NASCAR event, and you’ll sit behind the wheel of the vehicle chosen at the beginning of the game.

During the race, you’ll be asked to move the car up, left, or right. Your success is determined by your choices, and each of the player’s five selections results in a cash prize being awarded. Of course, managing to win the race results in the largest possible payout.


Top Progressive

If you want to drive away with the game’s top progressive, then you’ll need to get a NASCAR logo on the center of all reels. This results in an immediate payout, which can often rise in excess of one-million dollars. This is a life-changing sum, and it’s enough to actually enable you to go out and buy your own NASCAR vehicle.


Conclusion

The NASCAR slot machine from Bally is a must-play for fans of the sport. The custom seats give the look and feel of being inside a stock car, and the sounds and video clips only further serve to enhance the authenticity. Throw in a trio of bonus rounds, as well as a wide-area progressive jackpot, and you’ve got a game that should be a big hit on casino floors for years to come.
