Drive: Multiplier Mayhem is five reel, fifteen payline video slot powered by Net Entertainment and themed on street car racing. The graphics and icons resemble a bit those of Neon Staxx, but the visuals here are definitely more appealing, with night lights and customised cars adding to the appeal. All in silver, purple and violet colours, the game is inviting players to choose their favourite car and race as fast as they can to secure hefty payouts.
However, it has to be noted that besides the great-looking graphics and flashy icons, the game doesn't offer too many bonuses and interesting features as it is usually quite difficult to hit a nice winning combination. Wild multipliers will definitely come in handy considering that the main bonus round is not activated too frequently, especially if several of those appear on a single payline.
Play Drive: Multiplier Mayhem
The NetEnt slot visuals are attractive and the reels stand against a backdrop of a city at night. A dangerous-looking, scar-faced, tattooed guy with a cigar and an artificial eye appearing on the reels is called Hamaki, while Jette, Bruiser and Twitch are the remaining three characters. The reels are also populated with Nitro chargers that can inject some free spins for your machine, while Wild and Scatter icons are present as well. The music and audio effects are cool and catchy. A fast racing car animation is complemented with the sound of the car engine.
How to play
You first need to choose a coin denomination ranging from $0.01 to $0.50, and then select bet level from 1 to 10 to stake between 15 and 150 coins per spin.
Seeing that the game is played at fixed 15 paylines, your total stake per spin can be anywhere from $0.15 to $75, which is a pretty good range.
The game is equipped with the Max Bet and Autoplay options, with Quick Spin also available by clicking on the Wrench icon in the bottom left hand corner.
Strategy & Tips
Get Multipler Wilds and they will substitute for all the other symbols, except Scatters and Nitro chargers. Multiplier Wilds will multiply your winnings by the same amount as the number of the reel they appear on. If two or more of them appear on the same bet line, the multipliers are multiplied.
If you get 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels 2, 3 and 4 they will activate 10 Free Spins. During the Free Spins only, 3 Nitro symbols appearing anywhere on the reels 2, 3 and 4 trigger additional Free Spins and overlay Multiplier Wilds. Only one Multiplier Wild can appear per reel.
All Nitro symbols are added to the Nitro Collect Meter. Three of these are needed for the game to move to the next level. Each new round starts with empty Nitro Collect Meter.
As that is usually the case these days, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem was released at the same time across multiple platforms, meaning that you can use your tablet and smartphone devices to enjoy it on the move.
You do need a high-quality device and good internet connection to view the impressive visuals in all its glory, but you may have some objections to the overall payouts, which are less than impressive most of the time.
