Highway Kings

There’s a saying in the trucking industry: “If you bought it, a truck brought it.” The important role of big rigs and delivery vehicles in the world of commerce is undeniable, and they certain can lay claim to be the “kings of the road.” With that in mind, software developer Playtech produced this novel slot game for online casinos, “Highway Kings,” which is designed to shift the excitement of gaming into high gear.

Featuring 5 reels and 9 paylines that pay both ways—right to left as well as left to right—Highway King slots put players in the driver’s seat en route to huge winnings. Winning combinations include matching symbols with a motoring theme, from Steering Wheels and Tires to Pistons and Ornamental Dice. Payline multipliers from 3X to 200X are awarded for three or more matching symbols on an active payline.

Higher rewards come from aligning two or more Sparkplugs, Gas Pumps, Petrol Cans or Diesel Cabs coloured Green or Yellow. They pay from 2X to 5000X. And the biggest of the rigs is the Red Diesel Cab, worth 2X, 10X, 50X, 500X or 10000X whenever 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols appear on a line, respectively. Catching 2, 3, 4 or 5 Muffler Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels pays 1X, 5X, 10X or 100X, respectively, times the total wager. There is, however, no secondary bonus triggered.

In this game, there is a Wild Diesel Cab available on the middle three reels. It can substitute for any other symbol except the Muffler Scatter. When the Wild Diesel Cab is part of any successful combination, it doubles the line value. See the gold corners appear on winning symbols and listen to the massive engine rev up while the horn sounds to signal big prizes awarded.

The credit denomination for Highway Kings slots can be set from €0.01 to €5. The wager is always one credit per line, and the number of lines can be adjust be using the “Bet One” button below the reels. Clicking on “Bet Max” will automatically select all nine paylines, without affecting the credit denomination. The highest wager possible is credits per spin or €45 in total.

Click on “Spin” to play. Winnings are shown in the “Win” display under the fifth reel, and the current Balance appears in the screen’s lower left corner. Use of Autoplay allows bets to be repeated up to 9,999 times. The Autoplay option is located in the “Tools”: menu at the top right corner of the screen and a separate Autoplay control will appear at the lower left.

The Highway Kings slot is also tied into Playtech’s progressive Dollar Ball Jackpot. This lotto-type side game can be accessed via a toggle in the upper right corner of the display. The object of Dollar Ball is to choose five numbers from 1 to 49 and launch the main game, where five numbers will be drawn at random.

Catching 1, 2 or 3 numbers correct pays 1X, 2X or 25X, based on the total amount wagered. Getting four numbers produces a payout of 1% of the progressive jackpot, while getting all five numbers yields the grand prize.

Players may select their own five Dollar Ball numbers or click on Random Pick to have the numbers chosen randomly by the computer. As long as Dollar Ball is activated, an additional Jackpot wager will be made automatically each time the player bets in the main slot game. The Dollar Ball side bet can be turned off at will by clicking on Disable.

Whenever numbers match the player’s picks, the circles containing those numbers turn green and the win amount is displayed. All Dollar Ball wins are deposited directly into the current Balance along with any winnings from the main slot game.
