If you’ve played Net Entertainment’s Champion Of The Track then you will know that any online slot based on horse racing has a lot to live up to. OpenBet have chucked their hat into the ring here with Day At The Races and while it may not quite live up to that Net Ent game, it’s still a pretty good way to amuse oneself.
Day At The Races is a five reel and twenty payline release and it is of course based on the sport of Kings. The backdrop to the reels is a racecourse complete with green grass and white rails and even the buttons underneath those reels are printed on small patches of turf.
9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the usual basic symbols but the more valuable ones include a starting price list for a Royal Ascot race, a horse and jockey, a woman visiting on Ladies’ Day and a top hatted race goer.
The scatter symbol is a dozing horse, the wild is a horseshoe and the bonus symbol is represented by Tic Tac Charlie.
Three four or five of the dozing horse scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will give you the following number of spins:
- Three horses – 15 spins
- Four horses – 20 spins
- Five horses – 25 spins
Any wins that contain a wild symbols will be doubled and it’s also possible to re-trigger the spins by landing more scatters during this round. It’s also possible to trigger the Race Day feature from the free spins.
Race Day Feature
To trigger this mini-game you will need to land three of more of the Tic Tac Charlie symbols on an active payline; you will now get to pick a winner from a list presented to you. Once you’ve made your choice you can see the race unfold and the higher up your horse finishes the race, the bigger the multiplier you will receive.
This game can be triggered from within the free spins.
Any win can be gambled by selecting the ‘Gamble’ button underneath the reels and you will get the chance to double or quadruple your money by guessing whether the next card drawn will be the correct colour or suit.
Day At The Races Online Slot Playing Tips
To give yourself the best chance of triggering the Race Day feature, play with maximum paylines because the symbols are only useful on one of those – they are not scatters.
This is not a bad game at all – it may not be a challenger for Champion Of The Track but it stands up well on it’s own merits and contains some slices if humour to accompany the gameplay.
