Novomatic Winner’s Car Wash Slot Review and Free Play

Winner’s Car Wash: Demo

Cleaning up is the name of the game in Winner’s Car Wash, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Novomatic. This soapy offering comes with symbol upgrades as well as wild extras and a free spins round. Stakes start at 20p per spin, rising to £50 per spin for the high rollers.

The design in Winner’s Car Wash is done cartoon style – you’d be hard pressed to call it a classic look but it’s functional enough which is what we’ve come to expect with video slots from Novomatic. Joining the sudsy A to 10 playing cards are cherries (no, we don’t know why either), bottles of oil, piles of tyres, a red open top sports car and a pair of female car wash attendants. The blonde and brunette are the most rewarding standard symbols, offering 2,000 coins if you land 5 on a payline.

Helping your winning chances is the Winner’s Car Wash logo which is the wild – it replaces all other symbols bar the scatter and bonus symbols and offers awards of 200, 600 or 3,000 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

There are 3 modifier extras that can land in both the base game and the feature round. Keep a special look out for the red, green and blue signs that can land on reel 5 only:

  • The Soap Trigger feature – the red sign triggers this mini-feature. All of the 10, J and Q symbols benefit from a random symbol upgrade. A new payout is made with the more valuable symbols in position.
  • The Wash Trigger feature – land the blue sign on reel 5 and a random selection of symbols will become wild. A new payout is made with the added wilds in place.
  • The Wax Trigger feature – the green sign on line 5 will bring 1, 2 or 3 buffers onto the screen. They will land over lines of symbols and turn them wild. The payout is then made with the extra lines of wilds in play.
  • Deluxe Wash Free Games feature – to trigger the main feature round, you’ll need to land the Bonus scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. If you just miss out and hit 2 Bonus symbols, you’ll be awarded a re-spin with the 2 Bonus symbols held. If you then land a third, the free spins begin.

Here you’ll be awarded 9 free spins with extras. The symbol upgrades from the Soap Trigger feature will be in play during the first 3 free spins. The scattered wilds are active on free spins 4 through 6 with the buffer wilds in play on your final 3 free spins. Land the bonus symbols again and you can look forward to another round of 9 free spins, complete with the modifier extras.

Winner’s Car Wash is a medium variance slot, offering a balance between hit rate and size of payouts. If you’re hoping to be dazzled by shiny visuals, then the Winner’s Car Wash will leave you a little underwhelmed. The cartoon-style imagery looks a little dated compared to many new releases. The gameplay is decent enough without being spectacular, especially the free spins round where the extras can quickly have an impact.

A classic Winner’s Car Wash ain’t. It’s a typically solid Novomatic video slot though and fans of the Austrian developer will enjoy what’s on offer. If you want excellent graphics, I recommend Novomatic’s Kingdom of Legend which is their best release in a very long time (in my opinion).
