Taxi Movida Slot Review
Taxi’s, amirite? Who needs em? I do. I can’t drive. I’m a nearing my 30s, and I’ve never been behind the wheel of a car. It’s not like I live somewhere with excellent public transport either, so Taxi’s (particularly Ubers) are a very frequent addition in my life.
Taxi Movida is a 3-reel, 20-payline video slot powered by software from Booming Games. This one is reasonably ambitious, with over 10 symbols populating the board. These include an older gentleman (who kind of looks French? I don’t know) and his blonde, female counterpart, a taxi cab, and playing cards from Jack to Ace. There are 2 Wilds, the basic one represented by “WILD” on a blue and black background, and the other an extra multiplying Wild represented by “WILD x2” etc., on a blue and black background. There’s also a Scatter, represented by a passport. Even pros need help sometimes, so let’s run through the controls quickly. From left to right below the reels you can expect Total Bet, Balance, Auto Play, Spin/Stop, Bet Max, and Win Display. Above the reels, you’ll find Paytable, Info, Music, and Sound.
So, what features can you expect from Taxi Movida? Wild: The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol, and only appears on reel 3. Gamble: With this feature, you can double your initial win up to 10 times. All you have to do is choose whether the next light to be shown on the traffic light will be red or green. Guess correctly, and you win, but get it wrong, and you’ll return to the base game with nothing to show for your troubles.
Taxi Movida has three unique features to offer: Multiplying Wilds, Expanding Symbol, and Free Spins.
Multiplying Wilds: This game has Wild symbols which have multiplying values on them. When a multiplying Wild helps to form a win, the payout is as a result of the multiplication.
Expanding Symbol: Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols triggers Free Spins when they appear anywhere on the gameboard and activate the Expanding Symbol feature. Before Free Spins begin, hit stop to randomly designate which symbol will be the Expanding Symbol for the Free Spins, excluding Wild, Scatter and Special symbols. When 3 or more Expanding Symbols land on at least 3 reels, the Expanding Symbols will expand vertically over the entire reel.
Free Spins: 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the game board trigger 10 Free Spins. This feature is re-triggerable, and additional spins will be added to your current number.
Taxi Movida really puts on a show. I’m talking jazz-hands, cartwheels, the Can-Can, and a Bellini opera all rolled into one slot. The graphics are goofy, but very well executed, the soundtrack is fun, and the game is available on any device.
Overall, Taxi Movida is another fantastic offering from Booming-Games. It offers excellent features, and high payouts - what more could a gambler ask for? Come for the fun of it, and stay for the campiness.
