Truck Stop is a 5 reel, 9 payline pokie from Microgaming, which you can find on casinos such as Jackpot City. Launched a few years ago, Truck Stop does not have the big graphics and advanced animations that you will find on many newer Microgaming releases, but it’s still not a bad looking title and it’s also great fun, as we shall discover.
As its name suggests, Truck Stop takes place in a truck-stop, which is a bar/restaurant where truckers go to let loose, stock-up on essentials and even to spend the night. The trucker theme is used throughout the base game, but as there is no bonus feature, no story and nothing to collect or get involved with other than the spins, it’s not a theme that is entirely relevant.
Truck Stop’s biggest symbol is Big Red, the star of this game. You will only trigger 1,000 coins from this symbol though, which is a very small maximum win.
Truck Stop works in coins, and you can play between 1 and 9 coins per spin. The game has an in-game jackpot of 1,000 coins, and the value of these will depend on your total stake, which can range anywhere from $0.25 to $45.
There are no bonus rounds to speak of on Truck Stop, but there is a scatter symbol. When you land at least three of these on the reels then you will trigger and instant win, to a maximum of 100x your bet. This means that even when you land 5 scatter symbols, you will get the same amount of money as when you land 5 of the biggest paying symbol.
Truck Stop is not a hugely impressive title, but it is not without its positives and is worth a few plays.
