Visually this slot is excellent, with the engine roar and the pistons
pumping up and down over the reels, fading away as each one comes to a
stop. It also has all the great little animated sequences we have come to
expect from the Rival stable.
Like many recent Rival slots, the majority of the wins you get
in normal spins are pretty small; most of the Return To Player value comes
from the “Pit-Stop” Bonus Round.
This can be good or bad depending on your point of view;
Free-spins on other slots do give you the small chance of hitting something
really big – but on the other hand, you also have the chance of hitting no
decent wins at all and ending up with a paltry result.
At least with a Bonus Feature you are guaranteed a fairly
decent result with a minimum of Total Bet x40 (on this slot). The downside
is the maximum win is capped.
The Green Car is the Expanding Wild symbol and it appears on
reels 1, 3 & 5.
The Blue Car is the free-spin trigger – 3 or more anywhere in
view start this feature.
Three or more Chequered Flags start the Pit-Stop Bonus – click
fast to win big.
Overall Fast Lane is fun to play with its superb graphic and
sound elements, but ultimately it seems like it is pretty low variance.
Getting only 5 free-spins for 3 scatters will end in disappointment more often
than not, even though all wins are tripled.
The chance of getting 20 spins with expanding wilds & all
wins x3 my attract some players, but that would be so hard to hit that we
think this slot would have been better if you got 15 free-spins for 3 or more
scatters and some of the lesser wins were removed.
Rating: We give this one 8/10 – fun to play, but getting a
really BIG win seems unlikely.
