Mad Dash Slots

Mad-DashMad Dash is a Microgaming slot machine. The theme revolves around a mad race in various areas, where all kinds of wild animals drive quads, competing against each other. You have wolves, rabbits and turtles that take part, in a game with a cartoon style design that should be a lot of fun to play through. The game clearly tries to look like it’s a lot of fun to play, and I for one think it succeeds rather well, especially since the features also have a lot to contribute.

Mad Dash is a 5 reel slot machine, it offers 20 bet lines and it has a jackpot that is worth $10,000. As you play, you’re going to find a bonus feature with free spins, scatter symbols and a wild feature.

Features of Mad Dash

The wild symbol is one feature that is present, along with the scatter symbol and the Mad Dash bonus game, which will bring you free spins and 4x multipliers.


The Mad Dash Logo is the game’s wild feature. This symbol can appear anywhere, and it will be of help to you in one or two ways. First of all, just like any other symbol, it can create its own combinations of up to five wilds. You get paid very well when this happens, the top jackpot of 2,000x being offered by the Logo wild when it occupies an entire line. Second, it can act as a wild, so naturally it will substitute for any regular symbol, helping you get more winning combinations when all the right conditions are met.


As for the Gold Trophy scatter, while it can’t get help from the wild, it’s perfectly able to offer prizes even while being completely on its own. As the scatter, this symbol can appear anywhere in the game and it will offer both cash prizes and a bonus game. The only requirement is for a certain number of Golden Trophies to be present at the same time, without needing them to be on certain lines. You get paid based on the number of scatters and the bet of that spin, the reward being worth 2x to 200x the total bet.


Bonus Game With Free Spins

The bonus game starts up when you have between 3 and 5 Gold Trophy scatters on the reels. You get this feature in addition to the cash prizes I mentioned above, so you get paid even before this feature starts.

The bonus feature starts with a choice that you have to make. You pick one of the three racers (turtle, wolf or rabbit), one of the quads and the racetrack (through desert, on a beach or in a forest).

The race starts next, and the place on which your pilot finishes will determine what your reward will be. You can get the most free spins, 25, when you finish 1st. The 2nd place brings you 15 free spins. The 3rd place will award only 10 free games. All free spins have 4x multipliers for their wins.

Betting options and jackpots

The wager has three components, and you can influence them all, within the given ranges of course. You have the number of paylines first, between 1 and 20, which you can activate as you see fit. Each payline accepts a maximum of 20 coins, but only if it’s activated, and you can reduce that number to just 1 even then. As for the coins, they’re worth anywhere between $0.01 and $0.25. When you add them all up, you get $5 line bets and $100 total bets.

You can walk away with a 40,000 coins prize, though that’s only 2,000x the line bet, quite a low payout. It’s up to $10,000 cash, and that’s not impressive either.

Design and symbols

It’s one of the better slot machines that Microgaming has offered so far. The characters that appear as racing pilots in this game are excellently drawn, almost like they are part of an animation movie for kids. You get about half of the symbols in the form of playing cards, but they look decent, not like stock photos.


Symbols: Trophy (scatter, 200x the bet), Logo (wild, 2,000x), Turtle (1,000x), Rabbit (500x), Wolf (300x), Ace (80x), King (70x), Queen (60x) and Jack (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

I believe it is, for a number of reasons, which include mostly the features and the design. The top payout isn’t as great, but it will do.

You will find Mad Dash at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
