Let’s just set this out early on – I absolutely love slots that combine a horse-racing element.
With some exceptions of course – I’m not going to be playing Frankie Dettori’s Super Seven any time soon.
I really miss Netent’s Champion of the Track though, what a game!
This one’s also from Netent so I had high hopes.
The base game is a fairly run of the mill affair.
Stacked wilds, scatters, oh and the best horse sound I’ve ever heard in a game (some of them are shocking to be fair). We have a thing for horse sounds at SlotMad as you can see if you follow our Streaming.
You can tell that Netent have gone for a retro style in the base game and that’s fair enough – it’s a good fit.
The Bet Slip:
The game features a nifty side bet with the bet slip feature.
This allows you to select a symbol and place a side bet on that symbol appearing a set number of times during a set number of spins.
It’s a great distraction and given the nature of the base game it’s a very useful distraction.
We’re told the odds are set at the same rate as the game – it can feel like that’s not the case though if you’re getting a bad run but then that’s the same with all slots– give it a try.
2 to 5 random wilds will be added to the reels for one spin.
The Bonus Game
The bonus game should occur approximately once in every 250 spins, in our case it took about 1200 but that’s often the kind of luck we get 🙂
In the bonus round you are asked to choose a horse – You can select up to 5000x.
A win with the horse you chose will move you forward one space (think Arabian Nights or Grand National at the fair if you’re British – I’m sure you’ll have equivalents where you are).
Pick the right horse at the start and you’ll get a multiplier win based on your choice. Be bold is our advice (although it hasn’t quite worked for us).
The game’s a winner, it’s not Sea-biscuit or Red Rum but it’s a solid favourite at a level 2 horse race.
The Bet slip is a brilliant addition.
The base game is OK.
The bonus rounds promise more than they deliver.
We like the game, it’s a good attempt and we really look forward to a sequel taking the best elements of this and adding a bit more excitement in the base and bonus.
We’ll be coming back to this on our daily slots streaming sessions for sure.
You can join us on either of the below Streams from 2pm every weekday!
We played Scudamore’s Super Stakes at Wishmaker whom we highly recommend but you’ll find it pretty much anywhere.
