Many online casino software providers offer online pokies with motor racing and horse racing themes. But Microgaming likes to take things one step further. In its portfolio in Australian online casinos is an online pokie titled Mad Dash that has a rough terrain racing theme. To add spice, the theme is depicted comically with animals as the contestants.
The high paying symbols are tortoise, hare and fox. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons from Ace to Jack. These have been designed as brightly coloured checkered flags and add flair to the reels. The wild symbol is the Mad Dash Logo. It also awards the highest line payouts with a combination of five symbols paying 2000 times the line bet. The golden trophy is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. The number of symbols in Mad Dash online pokie is fewer than normal and this should result in hitting winning combinations more frequently. Also look out for the win animations that impart energy to this racing themed online pokie.
The single bonus feature in this online pokie is the Mad Dash Bonus, which is triggered by three or more trophy symbols anywhere on the reels. You are first taken to the second screen where you pick objects to determine the number of free spins. You begin by selecting one of the three animal contestants. You then select the cart that the chosen animal will ride. Finally you select the nature of the terrain on which the race will take place. Then the virtual race is run on the screen. The position of your character in the race determines the number of free spins. If the character wins then you are awarded 25 free spins. If the character comes second then you are awarded 15 free spins and if the character comes third then you are awarded 10 free spins. All free spins payouts are multiplied four times. The same number of free spins can be retriggered.
Mad Dash is an online pokie in the standard 5×3 format. It has 20 selectable paylines. You can wager up to 20 coins per payline with a maximum coin size of AU$0.25. The maximum total bet per spin works out to AU$100, which will keep the high roller players interested. Mad Dash is live at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Jackpot City.
