Bally’s Latest Branded Slot Is Coming SoonHarry Coulter | 27 Feb 2018
Wacky Races was a cult classic kids’ show that started in the 1960’s and aired all the way up until the early 2000’s. It will no doubt be a familiar name for most people belonging to the Millennial generation and those before them, so it is these players who will most likely be thrilled at Bally’s latest announcement.
The developer has revealed that it will soon release a branded mobile video slot based on the kooky Wacky Races characters that many generations grew up watching. The Wacky Races mobile slot is scheduled to land at Bally mobile casinos next month (March), and while not much is known about the new game for now, it is guaranteed to be packed full of amusing antics by the characters of the original show - as well as boasting full Android and iOS compatibility.
Epic Gameplay Packed With Bonuses
According to Lucky Mobile Slots, the new game is set to boast 5 reels, 4 rows, and 40 fixed paylines, as well as a minimal house edge of just 3.97%. The slot’s bet limits range from 0.50 to 75.00 per spin, and it also offers not one, but four enticing jackpots that change in size according to players’ wagers.
There’s also an innovative random wild feature that turns entire reels wild in Wacky Races, while the action-packed Racing Bonus offers another five different bonus features to enjoy. By this account, the Wacky Races mobile slot will certainly be anything but boring, and big winning potential will be provided by the 5 mini bonus games as well.
Five Character-Themed Mini Games
Essentially, the Racing Bonus is a race between the five main characters in Wacky Races, who zoom around the track and compete for the first place finish. Whoever wins the race first pays out a hefty bonus, each of which ties into the theme for added fun.
Professor Pats will activate 1 of 4 cash jackpots if he finishes the race first, and Penelope Pitstop offers 12 free spins and the potential for all 5 reels to turn completely wild. Creepy Coupe in first place means 10 free spins with extra wilds for players, and Peter Perfect offers a simple ‘pick me’ instant bonus prize. Last but not least is Muttley’s Scrap Yard bonus – another fun instant win bonus game.
While some argue that the Wacky Races slot will only appeal to older generations, it’s important to remember that the original Hannah Barbara cartoon has had a 2017 revamp as well, meaning that even more players will recognise its crazy characters on the reels.
As mentioned above, Wacky Races will hit Bally casinos sometime next month, allowing players to decide the final verdict as to whether or not it does the memorable childhood cartoon justice.
