Smash and Grab with the Highway Legends slot
Another off the ever-expanding production line at Play’n GO, Highway Legends is a fun online slot to get to grips with and has an entertaining narrative. Based on two robbers, Swift Rick and Lady Pearl, who are the main protagonists, the slot really does depict the ‘Wild West’ and has many features that reflect this.
Presented on an industry standard, five reel, three row grid, there really is a lot to like about this slot, which boasts an RTP (Return-to-Player) rate of 96.25 per cent. Interestingly, it is also one of a number of games that the developer has released recently that has a medium volatility level, with many of its competitors bringing out high volatility titles.
The minimum bet level of 0.01 is a significant selling point (as well as the volatility level) to those who haven’t played online slots before, while this goes up to 50.00 bet per spin. Highway Legends has a multitude of different symbols and features to look out for as the game progresses, set on a backdrop of highly immersive visuals.
The Ins and Outs of Highway Legends
In order to win when playing this slot, you are required to line up five of the same symbols, which for the lower paying ones (A, K, Q, J) pay out between four or five times your principal stake.
Meanwhile, the medium paying symbols represent jewelry in the form of earrings, rings and amulets and, should you manage to line up five across a payline, you will receive between 10 and 20 times your initial stake.
The ‘golden geese’ (or the highest paying symbols), meanwhile, are the two robbers; Swift Rick which pays out 25 times your initial stake and, of course, Lady Pearl who pays out 30 times, when you line up five of either symbol.
However, it is the wild symbol that is actually the highest paying at 50 times the principal stake, which can substitute any of the aforementioned symbols.
The wild symbol comes in the form of two shotguns which are crossed over each other in the form of an ‘x’ and, while it pays out 50 times for lining up five of a kind, it will pay out four times and 10 times for aligning three of a kind and four of a kind respectively.
Scatter symbols meanwhile, appear on reels one, three and five and can trigger free spins bonus rounds as a result, where you can significantly increase your chances of winning more than you bargained for!
One of the best bits about all of these types of symbols, is that the game has a medium volatility level, so you do not necessarily need a large bankroll in order to receive a payout, regardless of how big that will be.
What do we think of Highway Legends?
Overall, this is an entertaining slot from Play’n GO, which really has been well crafted and designed.
Out of all of the new slots that have been released recently, this is one of those that is more suited towards beginners, especially considering the lower level of volatility, and this is further aided by the fact that it has one of the lowest minimum bets per spin in the industry. However, there is always the demo mode available for players to try first in order to get used to it.
It is also a fun theme with many different intricacies that players can enjoy navigating, while on a mobile device the gameplay is simply superb. Although the maximum win of 2500 times your initial bet might be a little on the low side, it is still a respectable amount. Definitely worth checking out.
