Released: July 2018

The Wacky Races slots game can be found at online casinos offering WMS Gaming software who are a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Gaming. WMS Gaming do not publish their RTP or House Edge figures as standard. However UKGC licensed operators who now publish all game figures as standard. As such we can say that the House Edge of Wacky Races is 3.97%. As this figure has not been confirmed by the software provider we cannot confirm whether this game is configurable or not. As such this figure should be treated as a guideline only when playing at any operator that does not publish their RTP figures.

Closing Thoughts

WMS Gaming have put out better games than Wacky Races. But that said, Wacky Races has a lot going for it. This game has a fantastic selection of bonus features that are well tied into the game theme. The sheer variation goes a long way towards making this a strong release. And this is packaged up with a House Edge that while not supremely attractive, still falls into the range that is commonly being seen in modern slots releases. All in all a good but not great game.
