The latest slot machine being released by Red Rake Gaming is Speed Heroes, and it’s car racing themed. Designed with HTML5 technology, it’s accessible on all platforms and playable in over a dozen languages and more than 100 currencies, same as many other games from this company.
5x3 reels will be hosts for the 30 lines that Speed Heroes activates each round. Exciting features, which include free spins with Nitro multipliers, Wild Speed Runs, Gas Boosts and Sticky Pistons Roulette, are offered inside and will make the slot a lot more interesting. Wins of up to $6,000 are won through the best combinations made possible by the game.
Betting and Prizes
Your bets in Speed Heroes are selected for all 30 lines at your disposal. You have bets that start from $0.30 as a result, since each line needs at least $0.01 wagered on it. At the other end of the range, you get bets of $60, with $2 used on each line.
The Wild Speedometer is the symbol that you’re going after. It’s going to form a combo that will pay even as much as $6,000. With 5x multipliers from the free spins, you could make the jump to $30,000 from a single winning combination.
Long-term, the house edge of Speed Heroes is expected to be at 4.9%, so the RTP is 95.1%. It’s not great, just average, but it will do if you love everything else about the game.
Speed Heroes Slot Features
First and foremost, let’s take a look at the regular wild, the symbol that so often will appear and save a round for you, while acting as a substitute and bringing you a reward that you wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. Even better, wilds can pay the largest prizes in Speed Heroes, though you need up to five lined up on a line if you want the $6,000 top prize that they offer.
Scatter symbols are also present in the game, and they take the image of a Petrol Can. These scatters will pay 1x to 100x the bet, but you need 3 to 9 visible symbols on the reels for that to happen.
A Speed Run is a feature that you get when the driver symbols cover the 1st and 5th reels at the same time. Random wilds will be scattered around the reels, to help you get a win.
Sticky Pistons activates via Piston symbols, if there are five of them. If you get only three or four, then a re-spin is given, so that you have a second chance at triggering this feature. Once you get inside, you receive access to the Sticky Pistons Roulette, with three spins to go through and just as many cash prizes won.
Another scatter symbol is the Trophy Bonus. This one you need to appear 3, 4 or 5 times, so that the game can give you 12, 16 or 24 free spins. During the Nitro Spins, you get an increasing multiplier for each winning round you have. Up to 5x multipliers are possible here, plus you can re-trigger the feature with 6 to 12 extra spins.
Theme & Design
It’s a racing themed game, with the focus of the design being entirely on the story that’s told. There are no Royals inside, only images of the drivers, of checkered flags, petrol cans, tires, pistons, helmets and other similar icons. It could be better designed if we’re being honest, but the developer did make an effort with it, they didn’t just throw some random symbols on its reels.
Speed Heroes should be a fun game for anyone that loves cars and racing, with quite a few features being built around them. The RTP is the only one that I’m not crazy about.
