The first thing I noticed about this game that made me intrigued was the game design. To start off, the game design gives a very futuristic yet apocalyptic feeling with skull symbols and different heroes and premium symbols. Also I think it's an interesting twist that while you're playing the game, it feels like you're driving a truck. I find that quite unique and I like the way they've designed it.
When it comes to the mechanics, the game is again quite interesting. In the base game you get to play with 4 rows, and triggering a win creates a tumble feature where the winning symbols cascade and new ones land. But that's not all, as the game has 7 rows in total, yet the upper ones are locked. When you get a win, 3 symbols from upper rows will unlock. Of course you want that to happen, as then you can get better winning combinations. I've never managed to unlock the entire 3 upper rows in the base game, but I've had a few decent hits when most of the symbols are unlocked. Also what I like about this game is the second chance feature. Whenever you get 2 scatters which look like skulls, they will explode and remove all other symbols for a chance for the scatter to land. I've managed to get the bonus feature a few times due to this feature and I definitely enjoy it when 2 scatters either give a payout or give a chance for the bonus round to land.
However, once you've landed 3 bonus symbols, you'll get the bonus round. In the bonus round,you get a respins round, which is similar to many hold and win games, where the goal is to land new symbols to reset the respins. You start with 3 respins and everytime you land a new symbol, the respins go back to 3. In the bonus you can land many different symbols, such as expanders, which unlock more rows, multipliers, doubler symbol which doubles its value on every spin with a new symbol. It's very similar to Money Train, but I quite enjoy the way it's designed where the expanders unlock new rows. Having said that, there's also the super bonus- it's the same as the regular one but you're guaranteed to have the "doubler" feature. That's where the big wins can really come in. Once you land a doubler feature, every time a new symbol lands, the doubler with double in its value, going from 2x to 4x, to 8x, 16x and so on. Of course, you need to land new symbols on other reels for the doubler to keep going, but I find it very exciting. However, the game certainly has very high volatility. I've had the super bonus several times where it barely gives a 50x win, and considering the bonus buy is very costly, you end up with a loss most of the time. But I've also managed to get one win over 1000x due to the doubler reaching 1024x.
Overall it's certainly a thrilling game and the bonus round can really be rewarding. I do try to stay away from the bonus buys on this game as the super bonus can be extremely volatile. But there's definitely great winning potential and it's currently my favorite QuickSpin game and my best ever win on a QuickSpin game has come from this slot.
