Hit The Route

Route 66, also known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America is one of the most famous highway routes, stretching from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles' Santa Monica, covering around 2500 miles of road.

The route was made famous to people all around the world through books and movies, becoming almost a character of its own.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that iGaming software developer BGaming took it as an inspiration for a video slot that is somewhat reminiscent of the Thelma and Louise, although without the criminal element, focusing solely on the benign excitement of the road trip.

The release’s name is Hit The Route, and it delivers a plethora of features on a 5x4 grid layout.

Theme

It’s not just the classic car and the road trip element of this game that gave birth to the Thelma and Louise comparison, as three girls clad in retro summer clothes take the position on the reels, acting as bonus symbols.

The motel sign, obligatory Route 66 sign, radio from the '60s, and a cherry red convertible also appear on the reels alongside six brightly colored Royals, each cleverly using their respective letter to spell out a word such as "road" or "joy".

The background depicting the desert and canyons of the US countryside combines perfectly with the retro-looking slot machine.

Speaking about the slot machine, there is an interesting option to change the type of music via the three buttons on the left.

The choice of music ranges from the energetic rock tune, over the more traditional country music to the relaxing blues melody, and it is commendable that each of the three music choices befit the theme, never seeming out of place.

Betting Options and Functions

Bets can be set from the minimum of 0.40 to the maximum of 40.00 on the 40 paylines, with the highest win being x15,000 of the placed wager.

The return-to-player stands at a generous 97.00, which is somewhat higher than the usual.

Combined with the medium volatility, the title, at least on paper, seems to promise a lot in terms of the winnings.

Features

The three bonus symbols in the form of the icons of the three girls can land on any of the middle three reels, granting from 5 to 14 extra spins.

During the extra spins feature, these symbols transform into Sticky Wilds, staying on the reels until the extra spin round comes to an end. These Wilds can multiply the win by x50, x200, up to x1000, depending on whether 3, 4, or 5 such symbols appear on the reels.

The Stacked Wild that appears in the base game is depicted as a golden American eagle, can cover from a single part of the reel to the entire reel, also landing during the extra spins round.

This is not where it ends in terms of the Wilds, though. The Mystery Wild feature can be triggered randomly during any part of the game, triggering respins, and becoming Sticky until the respin has come to an end.

Our Take

From a return-to-player and variance that should work in the player’s favor, to features that incorporate three different Wild symbols, BGaming’s Hit The Route is a video slot that when you once start playing, you won’t be able to easily let go of.

Naturally, the Wilds are what you will rely on to get those big wins, and they will fairly often come your way. So, fasten your seatbelt, hit the road, and you may score some juicy winnings with this title.
