Hot Rod Racers Slot – Relax Gaming Impress With Souped-Up Cars and Wheel Spin Wilds
Published On: 30th September 2022
Relax Gaming have an eye on the competition it seems because one of this year’s best slot providers are preparing to follow rivals Push Gaming and No Limit City by releasing a car-themed high variance slot. It’s called Hot Rod Racers and arrives at your favourite slot sites in late November.
Some of you might remember Mad Cars, a summer release from Push Gaming that offered frenzied max max-style grid slot action with crazy races up the reels and Persistent Payer and Persistent Collector features. Or Road Rage, a typically maniacal game from trail blazers No Limit City. Both were excellent and scored highly in our reviews, but as you shall see, Hot Rod Racers promises a (slightly) more traditional style of gameplay.
In this slot preview we’ve taken a sneak peak at what Hot Rod Racers will have to offer. We’ve had a chance to lift the bonnet, admire the chasis, and let you know how it will drive!

- Rows: 4
- Paylines: 30
- Variance: Medium
- RTP: 96%
- Top Win: 25,000x
- Release Date: 16th November 2022
What Can We Expect From Hot Rod Racers Slot?
Screenshots of the game suggest Hot Rods will be staged in a car yard, with souped-up, chunky looking motors displayed in the background. The game will play out on a standard 5×4 reel set with cars and card suits making up the paytable.
If you’re a Relax Gaming fan, and who isn’t right now, you’ll be glad to know that there are no doubts about the volatility – this will be a high variance game with plenty of power in the engine – and a top speed (payout) of 25,000x!
Key features described by the developer are a mix of Wilds and Free Spins.
The main Wheelspin Wilds look particularly tasty – as well as performing their own standard function, they can also affect premium symbols to their left, transforming them into wilds too. They will also add multipliers to the grid.
Things heat up in this games Free Spins rounds – you can expect the Wheelspin Wilds to stick in the bonus round. And in a Super Free Spins round, the Wheelspin Wilds leave multipliers behind in their positions to be activated when another wild lands there.
And finally, in the classic style of a high variance slot from this provider, no multipliers will re-set between free spins, so we can expect some pretty frenzied action on the reels if you get that far.
These features together will help any player start pushing up their wins towards that mega 25,000x top payout.
Will It Be a Hit or a Miss?
Right now, with Money Train 3, Dead Riders Trail and Beast Mode just released, it seems that Relax Gaming can do no wrong. They have had an extraordinary year and we have every reason to believe they are going to cap it with another great game when Hot Rod Racers arrives. The theme may be more niche than others from their catalogue, but once again the maths model and payouts show a developer with their finger on the pulse of high risk gaming right now. In short … our prediction is a hit!
We will be posting a full review of this game in the coming weeks. In the meantime, why not check out some more recent releases on our slot game reviews page.
