‘Taxi’, a new slot game created by Leander Games, might sound like a strange name for an online slot to have. However, there is a theme behind this title. It centres around the 1970s television comedy show, starring Danny DeVito. The show ran on American television between 1978 through to 1983 and won 18 Emmy Awards. Three of these were for Outstanding Comedy Series.
The game features many of the characters from the show. However, the first icons are the regularly seen A, K, Q, J and 10 offerings. Additionally, you will find five character symbols. These are Christoper Lloyd as Jim, Jeff Conaway as Bobby and Tony Danza as Tony. DeVito himself appears as Louie, while Marilu Henner is also a symbol as Elaine.
The Comedy on the Reels
There’s nothing untoward about the layout of the Taxi game. It features five reels and three rows. Not only that, but it incorporates a total of 25 separate pay lines as well. You cannot adjust these in any way.
You do have the chance to change the total bet that you place. There is a range of between R0.25 and R250 available to select from. These can be found by clicking on the ‘Total Bet’ box. In addition, you will find an ‘Autoplay’ button allowing you to play up to 100 consecutive rounds at the same bet level.
As well as the standard reels, rows and icons, you can also find various special features as well. The first of them is the game’s wild icon, which is in the image of a yellow taxi. As a wild, this will stand in for any other icon except for the bonus symbols. Five of these will pay out a maximum of 500 coins.
Taxi Video Slot Bonus Feature
Speaking of the bonus icon, should one of these appear anywhere on reel three, the bonus round begins. Simply press start to flag down the taxi. You will win an instant prize for each trip that the taxi makes. Furthermore, there are free spins symbols in the game too. Three of these on reels one, three and five will provide 10 free-spins. During this round, every time a character symbol shows up on reel five, it turns wild.
Finally, three megaphone icons on reels two, three and four trigger the ‘Let’s Get This Garage Moving Here!’ round.
The End Result
Taxi will bring back nostalgia of this comedy series to those players who spent time watching it. However, it will also provide a thoroughly entertaining set of game play to any avid slot fan.
