Aesop’s fable with the hare and the tortoise is legendary. Microgaming brings this story to the reels in its video slot Mad Dash, with a few twists. The fox has been introduced as the third contestant and the action is rough terrain racing. Unlike as in Aesop’s fable, anyone can win.

The tortoise, hare and fox are the high paying symbols on the reels. The comical win animations make the race alive on the reels as the animals dash madly through the desert. The low paying symbols are brightly coloured high value cards from Ace to Jack. The wild symbol is the Mad Dash logo. It also awards the highest line payout of 2000 coins for a combination of five symbols on an active payline. This indicates medium volatility. The trophy is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. The scatter payout for five symbols is 200 times the total bet.

The highlight of this video slot is the Mad Dash bonus feature. It is triggered when three or more trophy symbols land scattered on the reels. You are first taken to the second screen for a virtual race. You back one of the three animal characters to win in the race. You also get to choose the vehicle for your character and the terrain on which the race will take place. The animated race then takes place on your screen. The winner is determined randomly. If your chosen character wins then you will be awarded 25 free spins. If the character comes second then you will be awarded 15 free spins and if the character comes third then you will be awarded 10 free spins. All free spins payouts are multiplied four times. The free spins can be retriggered. However, the race does not take place again. You are awarded the same number of free spins as earlier.

Mad Dash is a five reels and three rows video slot with 20 selectable paylines. You can wager up to 20 coins per payline with a maximum coin size of $0.25. The maximum bet per spin works to $100, which is great for high rollers. Mad Dash has the regular Microgaming functionalities, including a comprehensive and customisable Auto Play Feature. It is live at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas, Gaming Club and 32Red.
