If you love movies like Tokyo Drift or other Japanese street racing movies, then you may like Quickspin’s newest online pokie. Wild Chase: Tokyo Go is a fun take on Japanese street racing that has an awesome expanding respins feature that can lead to big wins.
While this game has lower paying symbols and lacks a bonus game, it still is a fun game with the ability to generate big wins.
Unusual Board Layout and Great Graphics
Wild Chase: Tokyo Go is a QuickSpin video pokie that has great graphics and sounds and a unique grid layout. The first thing you will notice about this game is the board layout. Rather than a standard 5×5 grid, you will have a tapered grid of a 2×3, 2×4, and a 1×5. This unique grid is set up to help you trigger respins to help you generate big wins.
The graphics on this game are excellent and the background is a Ferrari racing down the street with a city scene of Tokyo rolling along in the back. The soundtrack sounds like something you’d hear in movies like Fast and Furious or other racing movies.
The graphics on this game are solid but the animation is nothing special. However, it is still a step up from some games we’ve covered in the past.
Winning Symbols a Bit on the Lower Side
The symbols for Wild Chase: Tokyo Go are all themed on the high-stakes world of street racing. There are nine different pay symbols but unlike many Quickspin slot games, they tend to be a bit on the low paying side unless you hit four or more symbols.
Instead of Royals, this game uses symbols like diamond rings, gold bars, and bags of diamonds. For these symbols, you will only break even or turn a profit if you hit four or five symbols on a payline.
The high paying symbols for this game are a female cop, brunette racer, redhead racer, and a big boss. You have to hit at least four or more on a line to turn a profit.
While this does not sound like a recipe for big wins, this game has a couple of special respin features that can help you rack up big wins regularly.
Respins and Super Respin
The biggest selling point for this pokie is the respin feature with expanding reels. Anytime you win, a respin is triggered and the winning symbols on Reel 1 shift off the screen. At the same time, Reel 5 expands to a full 5 line reel.
The remaining winning symbols are locked in place and you get a new spin. If you win again, you trigger another spin and the reels expand once again.
Once you have unlocked the full 5×5 grid, you trigger the Super Respin. All winning symbols are locked into place and you continue to retrigger respins until either you fail to trigger a new winning symbol or the entire grid is full of winning symbols.
However, the Respin and Super Respin feature make all the difference with this game. In our testing, we found that when we triggered a respin, we would trigger multiple respins and generate a profit. We weren’t lucky enough to generate a monster win, but we had a few decent wins.
That’s not surprising seeing that this game has an RTP of 96.54 percent. That’s a lot higher than you see on many online pokies. While you won’t hit a massive jackpot with this game, it is still fun to play and the respin features can help you walk away from this game a winner.
