Relax Gaming is shifting gears with its latest slot release, as players prepare to put the pedal to the metal in Dead Riders Trail.
Dead Riders Trail is a 6×6 blockbuster-style slot with wins coming in the form of clusters, rather than paylines. The game has a cinematic cutscene and a maximum win of up to x50,561 the player’s stake.

Low value symbols in the game come in the form suits from a deck of cards, with clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades. These symbols can offer between x0.05 and x0.2 the player’s stake, depending on how many land in a cluster at once.
Medium value symbols are represented by different rider characters, with a purple female, and three bald, scarred and ponytailed males. If the right amount lands in a cluster then these symbols can offer between x0.2 and x0.6 the player’s stake.
Finally, the Dead Riders Trail logo is the highest-paying symbol in the game, offering between x0.3 and x1 the player’s stake if multiple symbols land on a cluster together.
Additionally, a US route road sign depicts the wild symbol for this game, substituting for all aforementioned symbols.
As Dead Riders Trail is a cluster-style slot, not all symbols that land on the reels are paying symbols, there are stone blocker symbols that can drop in too. Any winning symbols that are part of a cluster will explode and disappear, destroying some stone blocks with them and making way for new symbols to increase the win potential.
If all the stone blocks on the reels are destroyed by winning clusters, then the feature wheel can be activated. This wheel can offer either four free spins, seven free spins, the bonus or super bonus trail mini-games.
With the free spins bonus, bombs are attached to a number of stone blockers. Bombed blockers expand to transform into valuable mystery symbols when effected by the explosion of a winning cluster. These mystery blocks reveal the best possible symbol and make it rain with winnings.
Removing all stone blocks from the free spins rounds will activate an additional three free spins.
The bonus trail games work like a board game. The player’s pawn moves one to six spaces each turn. They start the round with three fuel cans displayed on a meter. One is used each turn, but more can be collected. The mini-game ends when they run out of fuel.
Landing on a normal tile will award a multiplied bet win, while landing on a truck tile will trigger a feature. Silver trucks can trigger any feature, while golden trucks can bring exclusive features such as the collect all symbol, where all values from all normal tiles are collected.
Basic features that can be won include a cash symbol that offers between x25 and x50 the player’s stake, a sniper symbol that randomly doubles multipliers on six squares and a refuel that gives the player between two and four fuel points for extra turns.
Another example of these features include the two-knife symbol, which adds a multiplier value between x50 and x200 to four random squares on the board. Shoot-back symbols are also available, causing the current value of the entire bonus game offerings to be placed on a random square on the board.
Triggering the super bonus round will see the silver truck that is usually positioned closest to the start replaced by a golden truck. This truck offers players a much greater chance of triggering the higher tier features, including a persistent payer that awards cash on every turn and a persistent sniper that constantly multiplies the value of other tiles.
If the feature wheel reveals free spins to be awarded to the player, they can choose to gamble these free spins in order to win the bonus trail. Losing this gamble will cause the player to lose all free spins and return to the main game.
Players also have the option to buy the feature wheel bonus, for the price of a significantly increased bet.
