Those who were around for Quickspin’s original release of the Wild Chase slot will find the sequel to be a pleasant trip down memory lane. Despite the fact that their latest heist was meant to be their grand finale, the familiar trio has reassembled for another spectacular heist some three years later in Wild Chase Tokyo Go. It’s probable they’re also struggling to keep up the expensive facade of a successful criminal.
The enticing trio have jetted off from the Riviera and are now in the land of the rising sun for some high-octane fun in a fresh environment. The Swedish developer Quickspin has made significant changes to the original game while keeping certain familiar elements. Played on 5 reels with a basic structure of 3-3-4-4-5 rows and 76 paylines, which can extend to a 5×5 grid with 259 ways to win with the help of consecutive wins, this game is far riskier than its predecessor. If you’re up for some fast and furious slot action, you can get spinning on any devices from as little as 0.20 to €/$100 per play.
This visually gorgeous slot brings you right into the heart of Tokyo, Japan. You’re in for a tremendous treat if you enjoy movies that include high-speed automobile chases. The reels are set against a neon-lit cityscape, and your Lamborghini is racing along the highway as you make your getaway. The paytable in Quickspin is amazing since the symbol values dynamically adapt to your wager as you play. Wow, I appreciate it. Champagne bottles, diamond rings, premium watches, gold bars, and diamonds can award anywhere from 0.30 to 1.25 times your wager on the reels. The four characters—a female police officer on a motorcycle and a gang of three thieves—add more value to the story. You can win up to 2.5 times your initial wager if you pick the good-looking guy. The logo for Wild Chase Tokyo Go serves as a wild, replacing any other regular symbol.
Featuring a Wild Ride, Tokyo Go (Quickspin)
Just like with the original, Wild Chase Tokyo Go does not include a free spins feature so expect for constant action. Obviously, there are still useful aspects to take advantage of. The Moving Reel Respin function kicks in whenever a winning combination is formed, regardless of the symbols involved. This function can be activated as often as 43.11% of the time due to its high RTP allocation.
Now, the win ways get larger after each respin. Each time you win, the symbols shift to the left and the ones on the far left disappear. As a respin is played, the other symbols will stay where they are. This continues until there are no more winning combinations. When maximized, the reel set enlarges to 5×5 with 259 chances to win:
There are 90 possible paylines after the first re-spin.
You now have 154 ways to win after the second respin.
After the third re-spin, you’ll have 164 ways to win.
On the fourth re-spin, you’ll have 259 new ways to win.
This is just the beginning. The Super Respin feature kicks in if you get a winning combination on your fourth respin. The game is played on an extended 5×5 reel set with 259 ways to win, and it re-spins until no new winning combinations can be formed. This has the potential to yield payouts of up to 2,757 times the initial wager.
The Result of the Tokyo Go (Quickspin) Wild Chase
Wild Chase: Tokyo Go, a game of medium to high variance, centers around building a winning streak. Unlocking all 259 win ways is essential if you want to maximize your chances of winning. The maximum win of 2,757x was earned after one billion spins during the beta testing phase, so keep that in mind. Wins of 100x or greater are uncommon, occurring only once per 1467 spins on average. That is to say, you may not find the “heist” in Wild Chase Tokyo Go.
Unfortunately, as is typical with Quickspin, the slot’s game engine and mathematical design fall short of the visual department, despite the game’s amazing visuals, soundtrack, and bonus features. It’s fun for newbies and casual gamers, but serious gamblers would mistake it for a game of catch in a nursing home rather than a high-speed chase.
