You can bet a relatively large amount on each spin if you choose - just make sure you fasten your seatbelt first.
Buckle Up Bonuses
You can enjoy the ride of your life when you opt to play Buckle Up thanks to the bonuses and features which are regularly served up to entertain and excite. There are no fewer than four booster features, which are randomly triggered and offer you everything from levels-ups and extra symbols to multipliers and extra wilds. There is also the opportunity to unlock new track opportunities and boost your chances of winning prizes.
Looking Good with Buckle Up
Buckle Up is a visual spectacular that will immediately immerse you in the video-game style action on-screen. The background constantly moves to make you feel like you really are living life in the fast lane as you make your way around the slot’s traffic.
The cartoon-style graphics are colourful, and while this isn’t the most sophisticated-looking slot on the block, you won’t be disappointed by the entertainment on offer.
Roll the Buckle Up Reels
The Buckle Up reels maintain the classic racing theme throughout and feature male and females drivers as well as champagne bottles, chequered flags and helmets.
The wheel icon is the game’s wild, and this can expand to become a stacked wild with the power to take over a complete reel. Imagine the winning potential of this! Before your game starts, you can choose your expanding wild, which will either be the racing woman or man.
Buckle Up has a trio of normal reels but also has a Booster Reel. A W icon can land in the centre of this Booster Reel and reward you with a stacked wild on the first reel. If you have played slots before, you will know that this wild has the power to replace other symbols in order to give your winning potential a real boost by helping you to creating successful combinations.
In terms of the game’s Booster Reel, this can be a great asset when it comes to filling your prize pot. Only special booster icons appear on this reel, and these can really help you create wins.
If you get any winning combination on the first to third reels, then you will be rewarded with a spin of the Booster Reel - and all the potential that this can bring. If you manage to land a booster icon between the arrows, you will be awarded the corresponding feature. These are:
The Extra Wild Booster
Get a W in the middle of the reel and you get a stacked wild on reel one.
The Level Up Booster
If an L icon lands in the right place on the Booster Reel, you will find that all of the winning symbols will upgrade and reward you with a bigger payout.
The Extra Symbols Booster
This will award you a prize for landing an M symbol in a winning position on the Booster Reel. Your reward will be a multiplier which will be applied to your prizes to really increase your
And There’s More…
If that is not enough, there is also the potential to benefit as Booster symbols combine. For the maximum winning potential, keep an eye out for a combination of an Extra Wild Booster followed by a Multiplier Boost.
Win a Trophy in Buckle Up
One of the major symbols to look out for during the Buckle Up base play is the game’s trophy icon. This is the scatter of the slot and can trigger the Circuit Complete feature. You need to land three of these scatters to trigger the feature, which will reward you with four different circuits - the Night Circuit, the Daytime Circuit, the Beach Circuit and the Jungle Circuit.
Getting three scatters will help you complete a circuit, and you will get a payout which is specific to that particular circuit. You can then continue on to another circuit and the prizes get bigger as you move on.
If you get the Daytime Circuit, you can win 80x your stake, and this increases to a 100x win if you get the Jungle Circuit. The prizes continue to rise, and you will be rewarded with a 120x win if you reach the Beach Circuit. This is only beaten by the Night Circuit with its prize of 160x your stake.
Winning Potential of Buckle Up
Buckle Up may sound a little complicated, but it actually offers plenty of easy-to-understand fun. Basically, the most excitement lies in the booster features with their levels-ups, multipliers, wilds and extra symbol.

How to Play Buckle Up
To start the main game, simply click START when you get to the entry screen. You may also be given the option to avoid this stage the next time you play. You don’t have to worry about deciding which paylines to play when you spin with Buckle Up, as there are automatically 26 active paylines, which is your chosen line bet times 25.
Before you begin the game, you will be asked to choose which image you prefer for your stacked wild symbol. This doesn’t have any effect on the game other than making it as aesthetically pleasing as possible when you start to play.
You then need to choose how much you want your total bet to be using the plus and minus icons. Remember, you only need to decide how much you want to bet overall, as the 26 paylines are in play during every spin.
If you want to speed up the action, you can choose the Turbo Mode, which skips sounds and animations and also makes the reels go faster. To spin, you can click the dedicated SPIN button or you can simply press your spacebar.
When the reels are in motion, the SPIN button will change to a STOP button. If you decide to press this, it will end the spin animation, immediately displaying the result of the spin.
If you don’t want to waste time thinking about starting and stopping the spin animations when playing Buckle Up, you can simple choose the Autoplay function. Just make sure that you set your session limitations so that you play exactly how you want to play.
If you hover your mouse over the game’s AUTOPLAY button, you will be given a choice of options. You can choose how many times you want the reels to spin without your having to intervene, for example. Once again, the button will change during spins, transforming from the AUTOPLAY choice into the smaller STOP AUTOPLAY icon displaying how many spins you have left.
If you decide to use to the autoplay function, you will need to set the limitations. This means that you can set it up to suit your playing requirements, such as setting a limit for the amount you can spend during an autoplay session, stopping autoplay when you win a certain amount, stopping autoplay if you win a jackpot and saving settings so that you don’t have to input them time and time again.
Understanding Payouts in Buckle Up
If you want to find out more about the payouts available when you play Buckle Up, you can access the game’s paytable using either the Menu tab or the INFO button. Wins are paid out from left to right and need to be on one of the 26 active paylines in order to count as a valid win.
There is a clear display of all of your payline wins and accumulating winnings for each spin and, if your wins get really big, there is a pop-up which will open to show off your total win.

About the Makers of Buckle Up
Playtech is the planet’s biggest supplier of sports betting and online gaming software. It was founded in Tartu, Estonia, in 1999, by Teddy Sagi, and the company launched its first ever casino offering in 2001.
Since then, the company has boomed to become the biggest licensor, developer and designer of mobile and web application software in the digital gaming industry. Its customers include such blue chip companies as Bet365, Ladbrokes and William Hill, amongst many others.
In March of 2006, Playtech was floated on the famous AIM market and was valued at around £550 million. In July 2013, the company bought the PokerStrategy.com community, which was one of the biggest of its kind in the world, boasting almost seven million members. It was bought for $49.2 million from Etruvian Holdings Ltd.
In another major deal, Playtech acquired the Aristocrat Lotteries from Aristocrat Lotteries Limited. The deal was said to be worth EUR €10.5 million.
In February 2015, Playtech was revealed as the buyer of YoYo Games, which was the company behind GameMaker Studio development software. Playtech is said to have paid £10.65 million (USD$16.4 million) for the company, and it was later revealed - in June of the same year - that Playtech was the buyer of Plus500, an online financial exchange trader, although this planned deal was terminated before the end of the year.
Further acquisitions did follow, however, including those for Quickspin, the online game developer from Sweden, and Best Gaming Technology (BGT), which was bought for €138m.
Another major development for the company came after the licensing contract between Playtech and Marvel Comics ended in March 2017. Even before the deadline, Playtech announced its new relationship with Warner Bros, allowing it to develop slots based on such DC Comic movies as Justice League, Suicide Squad, the Dark Knight Trilogy, Dawn of Justice and Batman v Superman.
