NetEnt may not have the largest collection of online and mobile pokies in the industry, but they’ve sure cornered the market in graphic appeal. That estimation was proven yet again with the release of its latest teaser video, giving players a glimpse into the gameplay of its upcoming title, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem.
Generally speaking, there are several features that all poker machine lovers seek out when choosing what games to play. Two of the most beloved among them are free spins and multipliers, due to their ability to accumulate massive wins, especially when they are able to work in tandem. The developers at NetEnt obviously took that into consideration when fine tuning the pay-table for this bad boy.
As the name implies, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem is jam packed with multipliers, both in the base game and during the free spins bonus round. And anyone who enjoys action-packed nitrous-powered car races will absolutely love what this new NetEnt mobile pokies machine has to offer.
Let’s take a close look…
Drive: Multiplier Mayhem Teaser
While we don’t yet know the absolute dynamics of this new game, it’s clear that there are some highly valuable aspects involved. The graphics alone are stunning, as is to be expected from any recent NetEnt creation.
The nighttime street racing theme puts the player behind the wheel (of what loosely resembles a Nissan 300ZX) as Jette, a fiery fuchsia-haired racer with an insatiable appetite for speed. Jette and a throng of other (all-male) racers make up the majority of the mobile pokies’ symbols, along with a Wild, Scatter, Nitro and playing card-values 10 thru A.
The Wilds have incredible powers in Drive: Multiplier Mayhem. As they appear on the reels, they receive a multiplier that’s equivalent to their reel placement. For example, Wilds on the second reel gain a 2x multiplier, while those on the 4th reel are worth a 4x multiplier, and the fifth reel a 5x multiplier. Wilds can appear on all reels, and with multipliers being the theme of the game, you can rest assured sequential multipliers are multiplied by each other when 2 or more appear in a winning combination.
The electrified Scatter symbols deliver 10+ free spins when 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels. Free spins come with a sideline bonus feature, wherein Jette faces off with another street racer during the free spins phase.
All Nitro symbols that appear on the reels during free spins will give Jette a nitro boost, causing her car to drive even faster with each boost. If Jette collects 3 nitro symbols during free spins, she will instantly win the race and take on the next opponent, with additional free spins awarded. There are three opponents Jette can race against during a single free spin phase – Twitch, Hamaki and Bruiser.
