Free Racetrack Riches slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Racetrack Riches slot by iSoftBet is quite an innovative and fun game themed on the sport of kings, horse racing. These slots are becoming popular of late with Netent's Scudamore's Super Stakes a popular example plus Playtech's Frankie Dettori's Magic Seven being an older release. Microgaming's Bookie of Odds is the most recent before this although their older Sure Win is probably better. Here we get a silly, juvenile stereotypical Irish theme with jaunty fiddle music, a cartoon racecourse background and a dozy-looking ginger man on a hobby horse beneath the reels to complete the ludicrous appearance. So will this be adding riches to our bankroll or will we be racing away from the game as fast as possible?
We have a definite feel of the huge catalogue of Blueprint Gaming 20-liners here with stacked symbols and the top 5-of-a-kind Game Logo paying 25x bet, Champagne or Horseshoe 15x, Hat or Beer 10x with four card suits at 4 or 2x for a full line. You have Trophy scatters on the odd reels but there are 2 modifiers before we come to the feature. Firstly, the Jockey may appear and cross the grid leaving a trail of Jockey Wilds in his path or alternatively appear after a losing spin to leave a win as he goes across. You get Pot of Gold Mystery symbols on the reels too, but really the feature is king of the track here!
So having got the 3 Trophy scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 you begin a race around a board. You throw a die to progress and get a free spin each time too. You are chased by another Jockey and it's game over when he catches you. You can pick up prizes along the way and there are many of them:
Fixed Cash - say 2 or 5x bet.
Remove - a card suit is removed from the reels.
10 Extra Wilds added - to the reels for that spin, may or may not land any!
10 Extra Mystery Symbols - same as above
2x Multiplier - any multiplier simply applies to any wins that spin.
Win Spin - you get a guaranteed win that spin.
Big Money - a big cash award bonus pick.
That's not all - these values will all be doubled should you survive the chase and get back past the starting post to continue your journey around the MegaBoard. They will increase again should you complete a second lap. If you complete a third lap then it's all over, you are winner and get to choose from some Trophies which will multiply your accrued total from 2 to 10x! Up to 5,000 or more times bet is possible apparently.
If ever a very good mechanic and bonus was let down by an inane theme, it's Racetrack Riches slot. The RTP is fine at 96.00% and if you overlook the irritations of both graphics and soundtrack the base game is quite good too, with decent balance maintenance via both wins and the random modifiers. The feature is fun, lasts a while usually and most important of all can pay big, really big! It's not too rare dropping in either so you should see a few in any given session on the game. You may well be clearing hurdles and jumps to have another punt at this race day...
