The set up here is pretty unusual. There aren’t any reels as such. Instead, the symbols (which are all car related) drive into position for each ‘spin’. On the road are red, orange, yellow and purple cars as well as a tractor, a taxi and a police car. The dollar car is potentially the most rewarding. Land 3 of these on a payline for a payout of 20 times your stake.
In the base game the single symbol high hazard is the wild. This substitutes for all of the cars as well as paying 50 times your stake if you land 3 in combination. You’ll see more of these hazard wilds if the helicopter hovers into view in the base game. This drops extra wilds onto the reels. You could see up to 3 helicopters land on any spin.
Lucky Lanes comes with a Free Spins feature - this round is triggered by landing 3 of the Free Spins Truck scatter on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. The single high hazard wilds are replaced during the feature. Joining the action are 3 high wilds. Unlimited retriggers are possible here too. You’ll win at least 10 times your total stake each time you trigger the free spins thanks to the Bonus Round Guarantee.
You’ll also have a shot at landing 1 of 3 progressive jackpot prizes which can randomly trigger on any spin. The Minor Jackpots offers between £1 and £1,500. The Major pays between £5,000 and £20,000 with the Epic Jackpot paying between £20,000 and £200,000.
Lucky Lanes is a lovely looking game. The gameplay is rather vanilla though. The free spins round has its charms though thanks to the 3 high wilds. This road trip didn’t really win us over. It’s okay for the occasional diversion but we won’t be making Lucky Lanes our regular commute – Wheels N’ Reels from Playtech is better graphically and offers payouts of up to 100,000 times your stake on each free spin
