Formula X slot - Free Play - Game Review
Motorsport slots are relatively uncommon, surprisingly, given the popularity of the the “sport” itself, across the world - and Formula X - a video slot from Spielo - aims to change that.
Now, as you can probably already tell, Formula X is based all around Formula 1 racing - and it also features a progressive jackpot, which can reach into the hundreds of thousands of pounds - more on that later on in this review.
First, let’s take a look at the game itself, the design - and what it has to offer.
You’ll see that the game is designed using a highly-modernised standard - but there’s also a somewhat classic theme about it, too, and you’ll see cartoon-ish symbols present on the reels, mainly including a variety of different formula 1 cars.
There are, also - of course - playing-card values present on the reels, and these are the low-value symbols within the game, naturally.
The main bonus game is triggered by landing three of the bonus scatter symbols anywhere in view on the first, third, and fifth reels. Once you manage to land these symbols, you’ll be taken to a new game-screen, where you’re tasked with picking a car, from the three available.
The car you pick will then enter a race, and dependant on where you finish - first, second, or third - you’ll be awarded a cash prize, which can be up to 500X your total stake!
Now, for the jackpots, you simply need to land five of the “Jackpot” symbols anywhere in view across the five reels, to scoop the jackpot - and while, of course, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll do so, the hundred-thousand-pound jackpot ensures that, if you have the guts, you can walk away with HUGE amounts of money… so good luck!
Pros: Formula X’s progressive jackpot feature is something that’s quite rare for Spielo games - and it’s a great addition to the slot.
Cons: The game’s bonus round doesn’t drop in too often, so don’t expect to see it too often.
