Good to Go is a slot which will appeal to motor sport fans out there. As well as the roar of the engines you’ll find many symbols associated with the sport. There is the Formula One style car, the checkerd flag, a close-up of the driver, a tire and a lady holding up a ‘wild’ sign.
Every time you land a win, you can take advantage of the gamble option where you can double up. There is also a free spins bonus feature where the scatter symbols are in pole position.
Like many other slots online, Good to Go plays out on the popular 5×3 reel configuration. The game pays out from left to right and has a total of 9 win-lines.
The highest paying symbol of all is the wild symbol which shows a paddock lady holding up the ‘wild’ sign. Land the maximum five in a row of these symbols and you’ll pick up an impressive 5,000 coins. Even hitting four in a row pays 2,000 coins, which in itself compares favourably to many other slots. Being the wild, it will also substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter. This will help many more wins head your way.
The highest paying standard symbol in the game is the red Formula One style car – F1 enthusiasts will probably recognise this as a Ferrari. This has a top pay out of 2,500 coins. Equalling this win amount is the G2G logo. The only difference between the pay outs for the two is the slightly bigger win for 2 in a row.
The driver and the chequered flag are next on the pay table, each with a top prize of 1,000 coins. The close-up of the tire is the final standard themed symbol, offering a top prize of 500 coins. These standard symbols are completed by playing cards from 7 through to Ace. These are more numerous than usual and can dominate the reels at times.
Every time you land a win you’ll have the opportunity of taking a 50 / 50 gamble based on the turn of a playing card. This is optional.
The rev counter acts as the scatter symbol in the game. Land two or more from left to right and you’ll land an immediate win as well as enter the mini free spins feature. This will now see you gain 3 free spins. During these free spins the scatter symbols are held in place, so you’ll win at least the scatter win for each spin. Should you add another scatter, you’ll start again with three more spins. If you manage to fill all five reels with a scatter symbol, you’ll immediately win the max scatter pay-out of 50x your stake three times!
This isn’t your usual free spins feature and at first you might be disappointed at the relatively low number of spins. However, the guaranteed win on each spin and the fact the free spins can be retriggered does make for a unique and entertaining feature.
As you might expect from a slot based around all of the hustle and bustle of motor sport, this is a busy looking slot. The reels themselves take up much of the screen, each of the symbols therefore looming large. The mix of symbols give the slot a very colourful air. However, as mentioned earlier, there are too many playing card symbols – these take over the reels at times. Throughout the game you can hear the sound of cars roaring past, which certainly adds to the atmosphere.
In many ways, this five-reel slot from MicroGaming plays like many others. There is the base game with a single wild and the feature offers up free spins. The feature does mix it up a little however. With guaranteed wins at each spin and retriggers available, this will appeal to those who like something a little different. While there could be improvements with the design, the themed symbols do bring the action to life. Whether this slot will have wide appeal is open to question, but it will certainly attract fans of motor sports.
