Hit The Route
Vintage American movies and the feel of a 50’s diner make the Hit the Route slot fun to play and even more fun to win.
BGaming 5 Reel Slot With a Nostalgia Feel
This is a 5 reel slot with wilds, bonus symbols and sticky wilds and even stacked wild symbols. Using a 5 x 4 grid layout and 40 paylines make it a lot of fun.
Unique features and a cool theme, give this game a try.
We Like the Theme
The theme fits really well with the feeling of vintage American movies. Some of the symbols actually have tie ins to a few movies in fact.
We love the game layout as it appears as somewhat of a juke box from the 50’s style diners and is reminiscent of a juke box you might see on your table in the diner.
Unique Feature for Background Music
Some thing we do not recall ever seeing in a slot game previously is the music in this game. This has 3 different sound tracks you can choose from. Just click on one of the buttons on the game board and change it from Relax to Country or maybe you like Rock music. This was an impressive feature.
Hit The Route Symbols
The main premium symbols in the game are very fitting to the theme. First there is the old 57 Cadillac Eldorado. Next up is an old radio, a route 66 sign and a vintage California motel sign.
The minor symbols are the card symbols and in fact the letters form a word. They are the A, K, Q, J the 10 and 9. We’ll explain the bonus, wild and scatter symbols in more detail below.
Match Wins Pay Chart
Line win matches must be exact symbols matched left to right on a pay line.
- Cadillac or radio matches of 5 = 400, 4 = 100, 3 = 25.
- Route 66 or motel sign matches of 5 = 250, 4 = 75, 3 = 20.
- A or K matches of 5 = 150, 4 = 50, 3 = 5.
- Q, J, 10 or 9 matches of 5 = 150, 4 = 50, 3 = 5.
All wins are paid according to the payout chart. Wins are multiplied by the bet per line value. Except bonus symbol wins which pay according to the total bet.
Hit The Route Wilds
There are various wilds seen during the game. The first one is the wild eagle. Wilds substitute for other regular symbols on pay lines to increase wins. Wild will not substitute for bonus or other special symbols.
The wild eagle also has a special payout when landing 3 or more. Land 3 for x50, 4 for x200 or 5 for a huge x1000 payout.
Stacked wilds can cover a portion of the reel or the entire reel during the main game or bonus rounds.
Mystery Wild Feature
The mystery wild feature can appear at random during the base game. If triggered it gives wild wheel symbols and respins. 1 respin is triggered if 5 wild-wheels land on the reels. If 1 or more wild-wheels land during the respins, 1 additional re-spin will be added.
During the round wild-wheels become sticky and stay until the end of the round. The sticky wilds can be a single spot wild or a stacked wild.
Bonus girl symbols come in 3 different images. The Blonde, brunette and the redhead. Landing three symbols on reels #2, #3 and #4 start the free spins round.
During the round any time you land one wild girl you gain 1 additional free spin. Maximum number of free spins that can be won is 14. As noted below, bonus symbols transform to wild girls during the round.
Three Different Free Spin Wilds
There are 3 distinctive wild symbols during the free spins. Wild redhead, blonde or brunette. They are similar to the bonus symbols but transform to wilds during the free spins round only.
Landing multiples of them have an additional payout of:
- 3 Wild girls will pay 50.
- 4 wild girls wi;l pay a nice 200.
- And 5 wild girls pay out a huge 1000.
During the free spin rounds all wilds become sticky wilds and stay in place during the round.
The range of wagers are $0.40 up to $40.00 Per Spin.
Hit the Route slot has an attractive rtp of 97.30.
At first we were not sure we would like this game. But the result of playing the game for the review our mind was made up and this is a cool game. We really loved being able to change to different music tracks. Having many different types and styles of wilds added to the excitement and anticipation of many spins. The hit rate on the wilds and bonus rounds seemed generous. And in fact the rtp is well within the range of what we look for in slot games.
We enjoyed this game and think you will also. You can play this slot at casinos that carry the games from BGaming.
