Tour de France is by far the world's most popular and most grueling bicycle race. Tour de France 2009 started on July 4 and will end on July 26. In all, the race will cover 3500 kilometers. This year online slot players were able to celebrate Tour de France in a special way thanks to Microgaming. On July 1 Microgaming released a new slot game, Pedal Power, with a bicycling theme.
Pedal Power evokes all the speed and furiousness of Tour de France. Five of the symbols on the reels are cyclists participating in the race. One of the cyclists has just reached the Finish point and raises his hand in victory. Another interesting symbol is of a cyclist with the Tour de France map in the background. The high value cards from Ten to Ace are also symbols. These have been fashioned in a steely style to go with the bicycling theme and also carry by cycling accessories like gloves, shoes, shades, pump and water bottle. The wild symbol is the Trophy. When it completes a winning combination in an enabled payline the Trophy is hoisted against a background of Paris landmarks like the Arc de Triumph and the Eiffel Tower. The Watch is the scatter symbol and it activates a very interesting free spins round. Players have to choose from 25 free spins at 2x multiplier, 10 free spins at 5x multiplier and 5 free spins at 10x multiplier.
Pedal Power is a 5 reel slot with 15 paylines. Players can wager up to 20 coins per payline. The coin denominations vary from $0.01 to $0.10. The maximum line bet is $2 and the maximum total bet is $30. The maximum fixed payout is 2000 coins when five Trophy symbols line-up in an active payline. At maximum bet this pays $4000. The maximum scatter payout is 100 coins. At maximum bet this pays $3000. Therefore Pedal Power is ideally suited for low rollers and this is another reason for its mass popularity.
The Expert Mode is available in Pedal Power slot game. This provides a comprehensive auto play feature that allows players to choose the number of spins and also allows players to stop the spins if the winnings exceed a specified amount. In addition quick auto play buttons for 5 spins and 10 spins are provided. Pedal Power also has Microgaming's comprehensive Options feature and Stats feature.
