Mad Dash is a 5 reel, 20 payline non-progressive video slots powered by Microgaming software. It is a comic themed slots based on the well-known fable; the race between the Hare and the Tortoise. It’s flushed with top-notch graphics, scatters, free spins, wilds and multipliers.

Microgaming decided to spice things up a bit and added a sly Fox to the equation. Instead of running, the characters use colourful quad bikes on a race track aka Formula 1 style. The race takes place in the desert, along a beach and in a jungle.

The game has a simple interface and the “Auto Play” feature can be used. There are no wild multiplier symbols. Mad Dash Slots is a coin-based game, meaning that coins can be converted to credits.

Coin Denomination

You can place your bets starting with $0.01 up t o$0.25. A maximum jackpot of 40,000 coins could be won and the maximum bet is set at $100. Players must consult the pay table, it indicates the various winning combinations for every symbol. All payouts are in coins. To convert the amount of coins to credits you must multiply the amount of coins by the coin size (denomination).

Bonus Game

The bonus game is activated by the scatter trophy symbols. You have three options to choose from: an animal, bike or the race terrain. You will receive 10 to 25 free spins if you choose the correct one. However, this also depends where you end up in the race. All free spins offer quadrupled payouts.

Unfortunately the second screen does not offer a bonus game. “The Free Spins Bonus Feature” also features across the reels. If you want to land 25 free spins you must hit three or more trophy symbols scattered anyplace on the reels. During the free spins round all winnings will be multiplied by 4x. For the duration of the ”Free Spins Bonus Game” additional free spins can be triggered.

Wild Symbol

The Wild symbol is the Mad Dash logo and the scatter is The Trophy. When three or more scattered trophies appear any place on the reels, it triggers the Mad Dash bonus feature. You will receive 10, 15 or 25 free spins, any prizes won will be multiplied by 4X. You can choose one of the following features in the bonus game: a 4-wheeler or a race course. If you want additional prizes you must race for it.

In summary. First time players might find this slots intriguing although the game’s audio can become monotonous at times. High-rollers might not find this game to their liking since it offers relatively low payouts. It’s suited to players who enjoy wagering at their own pace and who enjoy slot games with a race racetrack theme.
