We all love a good flutter on the horses, especially if you’re down at the racecourse too. On saying that though, there’s nothing like the sound of the barrels spinning and the cash chugging from the pub fruity. Wouldn’t it be amazing if…. Oh hang on!
Bookie of Odds is a horse racing themed slot brought to you by the legendaryMicrogaming. Presented over the classic 5 x 3 reels setup with a modest 10 paylines. Available across devices, this slot benefits from a Respins feature that gives you the choice reels you wish to repsin as many times as you wish to make a win, so you’ll need to keep you eyes on the race. Similarly, the free spins feature brings unlimited free spins with one symbol randomly chosen to expand, this create even bigger wins..
Looks pretty solid before the race
Set on a typical racetrack, this horse racing themed slot uses classic playing card symbols across the reels, including A, K, Q, J and 10 royals, there are also red, purple and blue jockeys providing the higher value symbols across the reels. The bookie is the most rewarding of these symbols however, get five of him across a payline for a 500x your total stake win.
There is also a nice respins feature as touched on before, each reel has a respins button sitting underneath it. Choose to respin any reel you fancy to go for a winning combination, as well as using it to trigger the Free Spins feature at an extra cost.
The wild comes in the form of the bookie’s book, but let it be noted that it’s also the scatter. It replaces all symbols as the wild, and triggers 10, 12 and 25 free spins as the scatter when you get 3, 4 or 5 across the reels, this will also bring you 2x, 20x or 200x your stake wins as well. This feature can be retriggered indefinitely, potentially giving unlimited free spins - but to be honest, if you’re that lucky you won’t be sat playing online slots… or maybe you will?
When you’re in the free spins feature one random symbol will expand to envelop the reel it appeared on, if this happens across a number of reels then you’re looking at some serious cashback, keeerching!
As Bookie of Odds is a high variance slot, you’re looking at 5000x your stake wins on each and every spin, and that's pretty nice. There are other games in the Microgaming stable that offer something similar, but for those who love their horseracing, this one is perfect.
