Route 66 is an online slot from KA Gaming. It has 5 reels, 4 rows and 1024 win ways. The RTP is 95.91 per cent and the variance level is medium. It is set on the famous 4000km highway across the USA. It includes wilds, scatters and free spins.
As an Asian company based in Taiwan, the developer is well known for their Asian themed slots, like the Huhu Fighting slot from KA Gaming, which centres on martial arts. However, KA Gaming free play slots increasingly take inspiration from other parts of both the natural and the built world. Here they have chosen an archetypal American setting, the almost legendary Route 66, immortalized in the 1946 song that has been recorded by thousands of artists from Chuck Berry to Eva Cassidy and even transplanted to Essex by Billy Bragg. KA Gaming’s free slots are widely available to play at online casinos like Slots Temple as well as their own website.
Route 66 has a 5-reel, 4-column grid with 1024 win lines. The minimum bet size is 0.40 and the maximum is 200. There are 11 regular symbols: the Start Sign, the End Sign, a Gas Station, a Barn, a Cadillac, a Cowboy, Cowboy Boots, a cluster of Buildings, a Cactus, a Motel and a Los Angeles sign. The scatter is a covered wagon and the wild is a Route 66 Shield.
Theme, graphics and soundtrack
Route 66 features KA’s usual high-quality graphics, and it’s interesting to see a game that uses American archetypes as freely as we are used to seeing Chinese or Egyptian ones. The backdrop is the highway itself, stretching across what looks like Monument Valley, famous from John Ford westerns. The choice of icons is fun, and the completely transparent reels keep the screen uncluttered. The soundtrack is, however, a little disappointing. The rock and roll sound is very welcome, but it fades away after each spin and would be more effective if it remained a constant accompaniment.

Route 66 review: our verdict
What can we say? This is simple, good-looking and fun. It is extremely short on extras, and even the RTP is less than impressive - just a shade below average. It's probably of more interest to newcomers rather than seasoned players, but that’s not a bad thing. It's brisk and cheerful.

What is the RTP and variance?
The RTP is 95.91 per cent and the variance is medium.
What does RTP actually mean?
The term RTP means Return to Player. It is a calculation to give an indication of the average percentage a player might expect in winnings over the course of play. However, this is based on calculations including all possible win levels. This means the level of losses will always be higher than any large wins. The average return will be lower than the total stake wagered.
What does variance mean?
Variance - also known as volatility - is a term borrowed from the game of poker as an indicator of the frequency and size of payouts. High variance means large but rare payouts, while low variance offers small payouts more often. Medium, as you would expect, is a balance somewhere in between
Are the spin results really random?
Yes. All the spins are dictated by random number generation algorithms so that there is no human involvement in the outcomes.
Is there a secret to winning when you play online slots?
There is no connection between one spin and another. The spins are completely random, and there is no way for a player to influence the result.
