Slot Players Catch a Taxi! Cab with Amaya Gaming
Amaya Gaming’s online video slot, Taxi! takes players on a fun ride through the streets of London in one of the city’s famous black cabs.
A lot of attention to detail is evident in the Taxi! slot, with the five reels and 25 paylines set in the front windshield of a black cab as it whizzes through this bustling British metropolis. The game’s various controls and settings are even built into the front end of the Taxi! The Autospin button, for example, can be found in the vehicle’s right-hand-side headlight.
Throughout their Taxi! ride, players are treated to the trilling sound of the traffic and other activity surrounding them as their fellow Londoners go about their daily business.
A Trunk-load of Taxi! Symbols
The Taxi! theme is further emphasised in the game’s various symbols, which include the silhouette of a Londoner hailing a cab, the cab’s fair meter, a number plate, a steering wheel, a set of traffic lights, and, naturally, the friendly Taxi! driver himself.
Take the Wheel for Wild Wins
The Taxi! online video slot is pretty much the only place you would conceivably want your steering wheel to be out of control. That’s because – you guessed it! – the steering wheel is the wild symbol in Taxi!
So, as per standard slots practice, the steering wheel can stand in for any other Taxi! symbol – with the usual exceptions of the scatter and bonus icons – to complete winning payline combos. Moreover, Taxi! wild wins come with a random multiplier of between two and five times the wager.
The Taxi! wild is also the game’s most valuable five-of-a-kind symbol and pays out up to 1 250 coins for players lucky enough to land this combination on a single active payline.
Taxi! Fair Meter Yields Scatter Wins
The scatter symbol in Taxi! is represented by the cabbie’s fair meter and, like most scatters, does not have to appear on an active payline in order to yield a payout.
Over and above this, the Taxi! scatter rewards players in another way when three or more appear anywhere on the reels. In this fortunate event, players must select one of the symbols to reveal either a multiplier of up to 5 times their win or access to the Free Ride free spins bonus round.
The Taxi! Free Ride Bonus Round
In the Taxi! slot, the free spins round – which is called the Free Ride bonus – can be triggered in one of two ways. One possibility, as mentioned, is that players land three or more scatter symbols and select the symbol that activates the Free Ride bonus. Alternatively, Taxi! players could land the clearly marked bonus symbols on Reels 2, 3 and 4.
The Taxi! Free Ride bonus see players awarded with five free spins, during which between one and five extra wilds may appear on the reels. Note that the random multiplier feature is inactive during Taxi! free spins.
Taxi! Wagering Requirements
Although the Taxi! paylines are not adjustable – so players must wager on all 25 lines for every spin – the game does offer various options in terms of wager size. Betting starts at 50.00 credits per spin but may go as high as 125.00 for players in the mood for a riskier ride.
