It’s the Sport of Kings but doesn’t often feel like that when watching a selling race at a wet Plumpton on an afternoon in January. There is a more glamorous side to the sport though and this slot falls somewhere near the top end of the market than the lower levels.
It has five-reels, three rows of cartoonish looking symbols and there are 25 pay-lines that hopefully will give you as many winners as a decent racing tipster. Those pay-lines aren’t fixed so just like looking through a race card, you have a few decisions to make. This is a lot easier than working out a Newmarket handicap with 40 runners, actually almost everything in life is. The minimum cost of playing this game with all the pay-lines activated is just €0.25. The maximum cost is €62.50, simply gamble what you can afford to lose.
The symbols include three jockeys all keen on riding the next winner Each are in different racing colours, one is in blue and grey, another in red and white with the final one being in green with yellow spots.
Other symbols include three horses (one of which is wearing blinkers), a Gold Cup, a betting slip, a blue and white racing cap, and a pair of binoculars. Not a playing card or piece of fruit in sight.
The wild symbol here is the Sure Win logo which is a scoreboard on the track with the game’s name on it. This can help you get some big wins in this game as it subs for other symbols to help form winning combinations. The big bonus is that all wins it creates are tripled. Plus, get five of them on an active pay-line and you win 7000x your line bet.
Other key wins in this game include 800x your line bet for five of any of the three jockeys’. After that the bet win is 200x for the blinkered horse. Details of all the winning combinations and lots more information can be found in the paytable. To access that, just click on ‘View Pays’ which is above the reels.
The wild can’t sub for the scatter symbol which is the punter who seems to be whispering to you the winner of the next race. It might win or it could fall at the first!
All the other control buttons are below the reels, it’s easy to set your stake and how many pay-lines you want to activate. It’s also possible to set an autoplay for this game. Handy if you need some time away from the screens to find out the latest horse racing results. To set this, you need to be playing in expert mode. Again, the button enabling you to do that is below the reels as is the Help button which brings up the rules of the game in another window. Have some free games once you have done some research and that’s great preparation, a bit like reading the form guide before placing a bet.
To get some free spins you need to get at least three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. That means you don’t have to be activating all the pay-lines all the time. Three scatters get you 12 free spins with a 4x multiplier, four scatters take that up to16 free spins with a 3x multiplier and if five come along you get a bumper 24 free spins with all wins doubled.
This game also has one of those gamble features. Either take your win or try to double it by correctly guessing the colour of the next card or attempt to quadruple it by guessing the suit. Just be careful with this as a wrong guess loses you your win.
A great little racing game with lots of features you will enjoy playing. The free spins round can be very lucrative if your luck is in, be careful with that gamble feature though.
