Horse racing has always been linked with gambling; people have been placing sports bets on which rider and horse they thought would win a race almost as long as they have been being run. So, it seems appropriate to unite the world of horse racing with the world of slot gaming. That’s exactly what Derby Dollars from the Real Time Gaming (RTG) brand does.
You’ll head straight to the derby and see all of the happenings that take place there. This means that you’ll get to see some appealing symbols on the reels which join the standard playing card additions. There’s a symbol of binoculars, another of the trophy for the winner and a symbol of a jockey. The final standard symbol is of a racegoer dressed up in her finest gear, and she can pay out a maximum reward of 2,000x your in-play stake.
The overall layout of Derby Dollars should look familiar as it contains five reels and three rows in total. Across this setup, RTG has also chosen to add a total of 20 paylines for you to place bets on. You can actually customise these by using the relevant buttons at the bottom of the reels. Additionally, the game allows you to choose a specific bet amount by using the secondary set of up and down buttons, and this means that you can choose a wager from 1p per active line up to £5 per active line. So, the bet range within Derby Dollars stands at between 20p and £100 per spin.
While you’re playing this RTG slot, you may also notice the ‘Random Jackpot’ section at the top of the reels. This will increase in value every time someone places a bet on the slot. The jackpot is available to win by anyone, regardless of the value of the bet that you’re placing or how frequently you’re placing it. The amount on display increases by no more than 1.5% of the total stake.
So, how do you get to be on the receiving end of this progressive jackpot? Well, you simply need to continue placing your bets and wait; since it’s a randomly paid out jackpot it could come at any time and for anyone.
As is common for online slot games, Derby Dollars has its own wild symbol to assist you with creating winning combinations. This comes in the form of the horse. Should this one show up on the reels it will substitute for all of the other standard icons within. The only symbol that it won’t stand in for is the scatter addition.
If you manage to spin five of the horse wilds onto the reels your bet will receive a multiplier of up to 3,333x.
The Derby Dollars scatter symbol is present in the shape of the golden coin with a horse on it. Scatters have the ability to appear in any position on the reels and still reward you with a pay-out for such.
They basically multiply your stake by a predetermined amount. So, if you manage to spin five of these into view across the reels your bet receives a multiplier of 50x altogether.
Derby Dollars may not have the greatest graphics of all the RTG slots, and it may be fairly basic in its special features. However, that doesn’t stop it from being a compelling online slot game. The background depicts the racetrack, making it seem like you’re really having a day out at the races. Meanwhile, the wild and scatter wins will always provide extra entertainment. Throwing a progressive jackpot into the proceedings as well makes this offering a decent enough addition to the developer’s catalogue of games without being one of its finest.
