Taxi! Online Slot by Leander Games Review
The Taxi! slot machine is a product of Leander Games. The game features five reels and 25 fixed active lines. Ten standard symbols create combinations along them that can produce a maximum of 750 times your bet per line.
Special icons increase your winnings. The Wild symbol can stand for any other regular symbol. One of the Scatters starts free spins, another allows you to get an extra prize in the bonus round.
How to control the slot
First, you get brief information about the Taxi! slot bonuses. After that, you receive 500 credits. But it's important to remember that bets and payouts are in coins.
There is a special coefficient to convert coins into credits and vice versa. You determine it in the range from 0.02 to 1.
The number of credits in your account is displayed in the Balance section. The account in coins is shown in the Credits window. The number of coins varies depending on the value of each of them.
In the Bet line, you can see the size of the total bet on a spin. Its first component is the number of active paylines. They are always 25 on the Taxi! slot. The second parameter taken into account when forming a bet on a spin is the line bet in coins. It is set using the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the centre of the control panel. The bet on a line corresponds to the number on the button.
If you want to see the size of the bet in credits, you should look at the Wagered section.
You can start the reelspins by hitting the Spin button. A series of spins begins if you use the Auto Spin button. Click it to open a list of five numbers. They correspond to the number of auto spins to be activated. To start a series of spins, click one of the numbers.
You can stop the auto spins mode by clicking Stop. It is worth remembering that during auto spins, you cannot change the bet.
Sound and display quality of Taxi! are adjusted using settings. They are found in the Options tab of the Main Menu section. There are six options that are manually turned on and off:
- Sound options
- Maximising the game window of the slot horizontally
- Display quality and animation
Symbols and multipliers of the Taxi! video slot
The Taxi! slot features 13 symbols. Three of them are special. The picture with a driving wheel that says Wild is one of them. This symbol is a Wild which means that it is able to replace any regular image. Also, the Wild symbol creates its own combinations that have multipliers of 10, 150, 500 and 1,250. These multipliers, like all the others, increase the bet on a line.
The first of two Scatters says Bonus. It comes up only on the second, third and fourth reels. If three of these images appear on the game screen at once, free spins begin.
The second Scatter is designed as a taximeter. It lands only on the first, third and fifth reels. If three of these pictures appear as the result of a spin, either the bonus round or a series of free spins will start.
All the regular symbols pay in coins. To create a winning combination, sometimes you only need two pictures to land. For the remaining symbols, the minimum number of elements in a combo is 3. Icons of the first group have four multipliers each, others have three.
Payouts for standard images are given below:
- Jacks and Tens generate 2, 5, 25 and 100 times your line bet
- Queens and Kings have multipliers of 10, 50 and 125
- Aces and taxi driver licenses produce 15, 75 and 150 times your bet per line
- Suitcases and traffic lights have multipliers of 20, 100 and 250
- A person hailing a taxi has multipliers of 5, 30, 200 and 500
- A taxi driver gets you 5, 50, 300 or 750 times your line bet
All combinations of regular images and Wild symbols must begin on the leftmost reel. In other cases, combos don't produce payouts. You receive a win only for the most valuable combination along an active line.
A series of free spins is triggered when three pictures with the word Bonus occur. Also, there is a possibility that you receive free spins after three taximeters appear. You win five free spins. During them, from one to five additional Wild symbols appear on the game screen. The number of Wilds is random.
The second bonus is triggered when three taximeters appear and allows you to receive an additional payout. To do this, you must click one of the Scatter symbols. The image will show the prize in coins which you will receive.
The Taxi! slot machine also has a random bonus. You can get it after any regular spin that produced a win. The bonus is about increasing the prize several times. The multiplier is random in the range of 1 to 5.
An important point is that the bonus multiplier does not increase the reward got when choosing a Scatter symbol. The random bonus also does not occur during free spins.
