If ancient Egypt were magically transported to Vegas, this slot would be the result. In fact, we’re not sure if NextGen Gaming was influenced by the Luxor Las Vegas, MGM’s famous pyramid hotel in Sin City, or Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Whatever the influence, this is one tenuously-punned slot title that bears all NextGen’s hallmarks of light-hearted gameplay and hot to handle bonus features.
The game’s load screen displays that most iconic of scenes – Vegas at night. But The Strip equals party time in the daytime, too, and that’s precisely the backdrop for Tootin’ Car Man’s base game antics. The ancient Egyptian Pharaoh has somehow been transported to modern day Vegas with a beautiful Egyptian princess, a camel and a mummy in tow. But like any of us not even the mummy is going to pass up the chance to enjoy Vegas baby!
Tootin’ Car Man is Wild – you can tell by the look on his face and the way he drives his convertible – and the old Egyptian party animal’s Wild antics substitute for all symbols except bonuses across the five reels to hit any winners from the 20 paylines.
As Wild as he is, Tootin’ has brought some wild bonus features with him. Firstly, the man himself fits with the randomness of the game by becoming a random Wild, skidding his way across the reels to spray his Wilds all over the place and recalculate your wins.
Remember that night time Vegas scene from the intro? It returns during the bonus features, with the sky lit up by searchlights like we’re honoured with our very own red carpet treatment. Landing a set of pink furry Dice each on reels 1-3 will trigger the Tootin’ Dice Bonus, where Tootin’ slaps the dice dangling from his mirror. We have to pick whether the dice will land higher or lower than the last slap, with each correct guess pushing up the incremental multiplier on Tootin’s rev counter.
Now, we’re in Vegas, and Tootin’ isn’t the kind of ancient Egyptian ruler to let that kind of a chance go begging. Land a Roulette symbol on reels 3-5 to launch the Tootin’ Roulette Bonus, where Tootin’ spins around a giant roulette wheel and, in true Tootin’ style, stops wherever he damn well pleases! Wherever he stops results in a prize for us. Rootin’ Tootin’!
Like many NextGen slots, this title is as off the wall as Tootin’ himself. If you like your parties wild and your heroes as maverick as they come with the ability to bestow upon you riches worthy of an ancient King, you’re in the right place.
