Easy to Understand (0)
Mad Dash is a simple slot game and the payout and rules are clearly explained. External help files are provided but are not likely to be required.
Graphics & Sounds (10)
The animations are excellent in Mad Dash. When any of the three characters participate in winning combinations the thrill of racing comes alive because of the detailing. Even the high value card symbols get animated, which is a plus point. The audio and the background music are appropriate.
Theme and Concept (10)
The theme of a car race between the Tortoise and the Hare is an interesting concept, made even more interesting by the introduction of the third character, the Fox. The graphics and the animations portray the exuberance of the race. The actual race is held before the free spins round to determine the number of free spins. This brings the execution of the theme to its finale.
Game Features (9)
The standard game features are on offer, but there is nothing innovative or extra to allow for a full score in this category. The wild symbol does not multiply payouts. The bonus game on the second screen is an adjunct of the free spins bonus and does not have independent payouts. The free spins round, though multiplying payouts four times is structured in the standard manner. There is no gamble game that is a trademark feature in many Microgaming slots.
Betting Options (10)
The slot game offers considerable flexibility in betting options and will attract both low rollers and high rollers. The line bet in credits varies from 0.01 to 5.00 and the total bet per spin in credits varies from 0.01 to 100.00.
There is no progressive jackpot offered in Mad Dash, which would disappoint many players. Unfortunately the highest fixed jackpot is not large enough to compensate for this drawback. The top two fixed jackpots of 2000 and 1000 coins are on the lower side.
