What is this mobile slot about?

…and now here they are! The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in the Wacky Races mobile slot!

If you read that sentence with a 1960s voiceover in your head, then we know you’re going to love this Bally game.

If you didn’t, or never heard of the original Wacky Races cartoon by Hanna-Barbera, then don’t worry about it too much either – maybe remove a star from this review if you’re not into cartoons.

But play. Still, play. Because this Wacky Races slot is exactly what makes Bally such a great casino game maker.

Dastardly keeps you company and gives you wilds

You have to play this mobile phone slot in portrait rather than landscape, which is odd as it’s only got 40 paylines and 5×4 reels, like many others out there.

And you know what? The Wacky Races online slot looks terrible – but it really works on mobile and tablets. So play on the go only.

The console looks like an old racing car, and it gives the Dastardly character above the reels a chance to shine as he motions on wins, and even acts to give you extra wilds on the reels.

Do you pay more for better bonuses?

There’s a little button called ‘Wacky Races’ Better Bonus, which charges you extra for… well? Honestly? Not that much.

Basically randomly, Dastardly can give you extra wilds or wild reels and if you have that little button ‘active’ you get more wilds.

It means that your budget last a little longer, but then you are also spending more per spin, so it depends on whether you feel like taking a chance.

The good news is that it doesn’t affect how much you can win as all the big payoffs are in the 5 bonus games.

The Wacky Races slot bonus games are seriously wacky

3 scatters will trigger a fun mini-game where you’ll watch the races go around a track, and whoever wins gives you special bonus games.

Penelope Pitstop, for example, gives you 12 free spins where you collect hearts for wild reels, like in the IGT Wishwood slot, but better.

Then there is Professor Pat, giving you the potential to win one of four Wacky Races jackpots – not progressive, but getting 800 times your bet is no bad sum.

We had great fun playing on this slot machine, mostly because they match the theme and features so well you kept wanting out of this Bally Tech casino game.

In-game bonus features

Wild Symbol: Dastardly and Mutley (the evil guy and his dog) is the wild symbol and can be used to replace all other symbols on the reels.

Better Bonuses: You don't really need to use this button, though it helps get more bonus features.

Basically, it turns a minimum bet of 0.50 a spin to 0.75 and the max bet of 50 to 75 a spin.

If you can afford to, it's a nice way to ensure you get more wilds on the reels, but it's not critical to the enjoyment of this Wacky Races game.

Random Wilds and Wild Reels: During any base game spin Dastardly may add 3 to 10 extra wilds on screen, or turn anything from one to all five reels wild.

If you have the better bonus on, you do tend to trigger more wilds.

Scatters and the Racing Bonus: 3 scatter symbols will trigger a racing bonus where you watch a race, and whichever car wins, you then get that bonus.

One car is always chosen before the race as a 'dark horse' and if they win (which they often do, surprisingly) you get a bonus enhancement - ie. more free spins, bigger cash prizes, etc...

  1. Professor Pat: Spin the wheel and win one of four in-game jackpots
  2. Penelope Pitstop: Get 12 free games and collect heart symbols. Every 3 collected gives you one wild reel, up to 4 possible wild reels.
  3. Creepy Coupe: You get 10 free games where on each spin you get either extra wilds or wild reels.
  4. Peter Perfect: Pick to win anything from 220 to 2,000 times your bet
  5. Mutley's Wacky Scrap: This is a five levels pick me game (Like in Blood Suckers II slot) to win cash and multipliers

Closing thoughts

Part of the love of this Wacky Races slot has got to be the retro theme that is instantly familiar and fun.

But even if you don't appreciate cartoons, you will appreciate the fact that you get plenty of bonuses; both in the base game and during the special features.

With 3 click me features, 2 free spin bonuses, and tons of extra wilds, this is high octane fun that will see you to the finish line.

About the online complaint is that it really doesn't work as an online slot, so if you want to play on desktop and need some retro reels, you are better off checking out Planet Fortune slot instead.
