Fast Lane Freddie is a racing-themed slot game from Arrow’s Edge. The game seems to be inspired by NASCAR overall. Still, it seems to have taken special inspiration from the 2006 film Talladega Nights – one of the symbols looks eerily similar to Ricky Bobby.
If you like racing or sports-themed slot games, Fast Lane Freddie seems like a natural option for you. But is the game actually worth playing?
Well, this is what we aim to find out with our review. Continue reading to find out more about this slot game.
Fast Lane Freddie Return to Player (RTP) and Volatility
Fast Lane Freddie is a medium volatility slot game with a return-to-player percentage of around 96%. This means that the game isn’t too stingy, but you should expect to have game sessions where it seems like you get nowhere.
We played the game twice. In our first session, we went bust pretty quickly. We actually hit the game’s jackpot in our second session, which has never happened while we were reviewing a slot game. Based on our experience, it really is a hit or miss.
Fast Lane Freddie is a 5×3 slot game with 30 paylines. There is nothing really innovative about how this game’s reels and paylines work.
Regarding imagery, Arrow’s Edge is one of the newer slot developers out there, and we think they’re still struggling to find their rhythm in terms of art direction. Sometimes, you’ll play a game, and the imagery looks great. Other times, it looks just passable.
While Fast Lane Freddie isn’t terrible looking, we certainly think it is on the lower end of their games. The poker symbols look too simple, and some of the character designs look like late 80s cartoon characters.
Here is all you need to know about the gameplay experience in Fast Lane Freddie:
Symbols are a combination of theme-related and poker symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K, A). Theme-related symbols payout the most. Some of the images you will see zooming across the reels include a female racecar driver with blonde hair, a male racecar driver with short brown hair, a cowboy-looking male racecar driver with long black hair (who is apparently Freddie), and a pit girl with long brown hair.
Freddie is the game’s wild symbol and can be used to complete winning combinations. There are two bonus symbols – the racecars approaching the finish line and the image showing the pits.
Fast Lane Freddie has a bet range between $0.01 and $8 per line. This means that the minimum bet with all paylines active is $0.30, whereas the maximum is $240. This means the game should appeal to most players as it offers a range that should meet the needs of both high and low rollers.
Fast Lane Freddie has three bonus modes:
Extended Wilds – if the Freddie wild symbol lands on the third reel, it will expand to cover the entire reel, thereby increasing your opportunities to win.
Pits Feature – if the pit symbol appears at the top of any reel, it expands to cover the two lines below and turns into 2x wild. This means more potential to land winning combinations and bigger payouts.
Bonus Race Game – if you land three of the racecar symbols on the reels, you activate a bonus game where you race against other vehicles. Each car you pass results in more extra winnings. If you make the wrong decision, you crash and walk away with the winnings you currently have.
Fast Lane Freddie Final Rating
We have mixed feelings about Fast Lane Freddie. While it isn’t a bad game, but the visuals leave a lot to be desired. Although we hit it big on this title, we feel that as a game overall, it slightly misses the mark. We can’t even guarantee you that it is one of the easier slot games to win.
For these reasons, we have decided to rate Fast Lane Freddie three out of five. You should have fun on it, but if your main aim is pleasure and not to win, we suggest you broaden your options.
