Whether it's films,music or food that you're talking about, everyone has their
preferences in life, and it’s no different when talking about slot machines.
For superhero fans there’s Spiderman, Superman or the Hulk. For Fantasy fans
there’s Rainbow Riches, Thunder of The Gods and Game of Thrones, and for
horse racing fans who are also slots players there’s also a fine range of games
themed on their category of choice.
Here are the best horse racing slots out there.
Frankie Dettori’s Magnificent 7
When the marvelously outgoing Frankie Dettori rode seven winners on a single
afternoon at Ascot racecourse back in 1996, none of us could have predicted that
he would go on to have his name not only on an Italian frozen food range, but also
a slot machine. Well that’s what’s happened, and while the great man is still riding
with aplomb slots players up and down the country are spinning away on what is a
truly great game. An exciting base game which delivers regular wins over its twenty
five pay-lines is complimented by not one but two extra features that can be triggered
by lining up the right symbols. The Free Spins game can grant you up to thirty five
free spins if your horse wins the race whilst the Magic Seven Bonus game will allow
you to choose segment so of the racetrack until a collect symbol is found. If your luck
is in, both features can be lucrative.
Frankie Dettori’s Magnificent 7 Jackpot
Such was the success of the regular Frankie Dettori Magnificent 7 game that Playtech
made the Jackpot version too, and it doesn’t disappoint. All the joy of the first version
are relived but this time with the added possibility that the jackpot game will be triggered,
as it can be randomly after any spin. If lucky enough to have this occur (and the higher
your bet is the more likely it is to appear) then you are in for a treat and already have a
guaranteed win in the bank. The question is what size the win will be and it will be your
job to determine that by uncovering either gold, silver or bronze trophies from the shelves.
There are no prizes for guessing which will bring you the greatest glory...
When choosing which slot to play there are usually two different types to choose from.
The ones which regularly allow you access into the Bonus or Free Spins game but only
deliver modest wins. And the ones which let you trigger the bonus game less frequently
but usually reward you well when you do. It’s not easy to find a slot that meets the criteria
of having a bit of both but Microgaming’s Sure Win, which can be played at Betway
amongst others, is pretty close. The scatters seem to be forever falling onto the reels and
allowing you into the Free Spins feature and there are more than enough wild symbols to
help keep the balance ticking along in between. As well as its generosity, great sound effects
and a slightly spoof horse racing theme make this an old favourite that keeps players coming
back time and time again.
Legends of Racing
Gala Bingo's Legends of Racing was a big talking point among the slots and horse
racing crossover crowd when it launched and it’s hard to deny that it’s a great game.
It’s unfortunate that it’s not available in more online casinos across the board but one
can still admire the inclusion of some of our racing greats among the symbols. Real
imagery of Long Run, Hurricane Fly and Many Clouds, to name a few, help to give
this five reel, ten line slot a great racing feel and the gameplay is pretty good, too.
The fact that there is a Free Spins game and a Bonus game to try and trigger gives the
game longevity and seeing those lovely old horses on screen demands loyalty from
those who love them.
Lucky Horse A popular game both here and abroad, Lucky Horse is a six-reel, 466-line slot from IGT
and High 5 which does a good job in bringing the glitz and glammer of high class American horse racing
onto your screen with vibrant colours and wealthy looking imagery. With Lucky Horse Wilds appearing
with some regularity on five of the six reels during normal play and a Free Spins game which is triggered
by hitting three trophy symbols. Seven Free Spins may not sound like a lot but throw in the fact that all
regular Wilds become Expanding Wilds during those games and the prospect of a decent sized win
becomes a reality.
