Time to put the pedal to the metal and head off into the horizon with this slot from Booming Games. Desert Drag is a fast-octane racing-themed game with five reels and nine paylines.
However, Desert Drag could use an injection of bonus boost since the game lacks any unique bonus features like a Gamble Round or even some Free Spins. This is sorely missing from this game although it does have a two-way win feature where players can make wins from either left to right or right to left on any active payline.
How to play Desert Drag
Set against the backdrop of the open American West where players can see the long, never-ending roads into the horizon. The scene is the perfect environment for a high-velocity drag race where drivers compete for bragging rights by going head to head and attempt to get themselves first across the finish line.
Players will need to spin five reels in Desert Drag with the symbolism representing realistic cars, characters and hot and fast engines. Again, another _drag_ of Desert Drag is its limited paylines, only nine of them meaning it's harder for players to form winning combinations, even with the two-way winning feature.
As mentioned there are no bonus features or rounds within Desert Drag there are wilds and scatters within the game. The flaming hot rod muscle car is the game's wild symbol and replaces all others on the reels. A set of flashing police lights oddly doubles up as the game's scatter symbol.
The flaming hot rod muscle car symbol, as the game's wild substitutes all others on reels so helps form winning combinations more frequently. When this actually does happen, the standard prize doubles in value. One icon the flaming hot rod muscle car cannot replace is the flashing police lights scatter. The scatter comes with a multiplier, either an x1, x5, x10 or x100 one depending on how many scatters (either two, three, four or five) appear on the reels.
Desert Drag has apparently been made to appeal to petrol-heads out there or those with love for classic American muscle cars.
However, true adrenaline junkies will be slightly disappointed by this slot game because of the lack of any particular bonus features or free spins.
