Taxi Driver is a charming little slot about life as a cabbie. The reels are located in front of a busy international airport, where taxis come and go around the clock. Examples of symbols that can appear on the reels are drivers, taxis, and luggage.
This slot comes from Holland Power Gaming.
This is a 5-reel slot. This slot is a good choice if you like online videoslots.
The Taxi Driver slot has 10 paylines. You decide how many paylines to activate, from just 1 to all 10 of them.
Autoplay is available.
We were surprised to find that Taxi Driver doesn’t have a wild symbol. This is a rather bold move by the game developer, since wild symbols are so common today and almost all slots have them.
The taxi license symbol is a scatter symbol. If you get at least three scatters, anywhere on the reels, you win a mystery prize. Biggest possible mystery prize is 100x your total wager.
The taximeter is a bonus symbol in this game. You need a proper combo with at least three bonus symbols on an activated payline to start the taximeter bonus round. During the bonus round, your job is to transport your clients to their destination.
When you win something at Taxi Driver, you can elect to risk it in a game of double-or-nothing. Your task is to correctly guess the colour of the next card.
If you feel extra adventorous – guess the suit instead of just the colour. If you are right, the money is quadrupled instead of doubled.
