Driving stick, or manual in the UK, is a term which refers to changing gear in a car. Therefore it will come as no surprise to learn that Stick Shifter is a video slot themed around exotic sports cars. The slot includes 20 paylines of petrol head heaven with features such as multipliers, wilds and a multi level free spin bonus round.
The designers have gone all out with the control panel of stick shifter by making it look like a futuristic car dashboard complete with digital dials and switchgear. Not only does this look cool but allows players to easily configure the slot with bets that suit them.
The reels are bustling with the worlds most desirable cars. You'll find hot rods, Dodge Vipers, Zonda's, Bugatti Veyron's, Ferraris and Porsches which all come with fitting sound effects. Other icons include shock absorbers, gear shifters, tyres, engines, spark plugs and high performance break disks.
Players can use up to 300 coins which are fixed at 1 penny each. This means the maximum bet is $3 whilst a range of bets are available for as little as 0.01 per play.
The cylinder head scatter will award twenty or forty free spins when three or four icons appear anywhere on the reels. This starts you in first gear with the potential to move up the gears if a gear stick icon appears during any spin. When this happens your multiplier increases by one and you receive ten more free spins. These will continue to build up until you reach fifth gear and count back down through the gears with each spin until you reach zero. However, if you are in fifth gear and hit another gear lever icon the slot will throw the 'gear box' into reverse which will blow it up and end your free spins immediately.
The hot rod wild icon can substitute for every other icon except the cylinder head scatter. As this is a multiplying scatter any win created is doubled during both standard and free spins.
Stick Shifter is a finished to a high standard and entertains with its bespoke animated graphics and sound effects. The key area where it excels over competing slots is the frequency that free spins are retriggered which invariably results in more wins for free.
