If you hadn’t figured it out from the title of this game, this Playtech slot is a trucker themed game. It is also one of the older Playtech slots you will come across, containing the Dollar Ball progressive jackpot feature. Highway Kings only features 5 reels and 9 paylines, so it is easily one of the cheaper slots out there you can play, ideal for newbies we would say. Highway Kings permits line bets from 0.01 up to 5.00 in total, and all 9 paylines can be adjusted by the “bet one” or “bet max” buttons. At its cheapest, you are looking at a slot which will cost just 0.01 per line, per spin. At its most costly, you are going to be wagering up to 45.00 per spin. Players can expect to be able to play for a top non-progressive jackpot worth 10,000 coins in this game.
If they wish to get their hands on that 10,000-coin jackpot, players need to line up a total of 5 red trucks on any active payline in the game. It won’t be easy with only 9 paylines, but it certainly isn’t impossible.
The flashy truck icon is the wild symbols in this game, and it is capable of appearing on all of the reels of the slot, as well as substituting for all other symbols, bar scatters.
Scatter icons appear as exhaust pipes, and they can offer you scattered wins of 1x, 5x, 10x, or 100x your total bet, if you are fortunate enough to land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels. Scatter icons do not trigger bonus rounds in this slot machine game.
There are no other bonus rounds in this slot, but there is a Dollar Ball progressive jackpot to be won if you are lucky enough. That really isn’t easy to do, mind you. You don’t even need to spin the reels of the slot in order to bag this jackpot. Instead, it costs a single credit (1.00), and it will give you a series of numbers just like a lottery ticket.
Again, just like a lottery, a set of numbers will be drawn from the game. If your numbers match those drawn, then you will win either the whole jackpot, or a slice of it. Players can win 1, 2 or 25 coins for matching 1, 2 or 3 numbers in the Dollar Ball progressive game. Matching 4 of them will see you win 1% of the jackpot, whilst matching all 5 will offer you the total progressive prize.
