Ladies & Gents, the kings of all casino & slots proudly introduce the Drive Multiplier Mayhem slot game. If you could trust any online slot developer to take on the street race theme and come up with an online slot that was as adrenaline-pumped as the genre, it would be Net Entertainment.
Though the Drive Multiplier Mayhem slot game isn’t directly affiliated with the cult hit Ryan Gosling movie there are clear nods to it, Nods that serve to speed this game past its 15 paylines and multi-level Free Spins feature and into a racing world where our BPM is in sync with our RPM. And that’s damn fast.
NetEnt had one option when it came to the soundtrack for Drive: Multiplier Mayhem™. Go big and go loud. The rest – electronic, rock, jazz, show tunes – was much of a muchness. They’ve gone electronic (a nod to Gosling’s Drive, maybe?) and they’ve gone with a female lead, Jette, who is blowing away the street racing hierarchy in Nitro-fuelled racing duels. Even Jette’s jacket is a la mode.
As we hunt down Drive’s 15 paylines during the base game we do so with Wild Multipliers flying at us like pedestrians crossing the road in a street race. Don’t they know they’re going to get smashed? Maybe they’ve got a death wish. Either way it’s good news for us. Each Multiplier Wild offers between x1 and x5 multiplier, dependent on which reel they land on (x1 multiplier on Reel 1, x2 on Reel 2, x3 on Reel 3, etc.). But we are not limited to a single Wild per spin. Oh no. We can land a Multiplier Wild on each reel, and should more than one Multiplier Wild land across the reels those multipliers are multiplied together. That’s why it’s called Multiplier Mayhem™, and fortunately for us it’s not up to us to do the maths.
Aside from the serious base-game win potential thanks to our Multiplier Wilds, Drive also shows off with its Free Spins feature. Land three Scatters on Reels 2, 3 and 4 and we are into a multi-level bonus round that sees us take on the crème de la crème of street racers. We have 10 Free Spins to tackle three opponents, though as we collect Nitro symbols we climb the Nitro Meter to burn off the current opponent and screech on to the next, as well as picking up additional free spins, an overlay Multiplier Wild and the respect of the street racing underworld.
Drive: Multiplier Mayhem™ has everything: theme, action, gameplay, drama, bonuses. The only thing it doesn’t have is Ryan Gosling, but NetEnt have made tbhis slot so damn good we’ve just gotta go without him. After all, we’ve got the need for speed. Whoop!
