Champion of the Track Slot Review
Do you enjoy going to the race courses and watching the horses and jockeys go flying around the track? How about placing bets on such events? It’s a bit of a thrill, isn’t it? Well, now you can have all those thrills from the comfort of your home, with Netent’s ‘Champion of the Track’ game. Utilising such a theme, the developer has filled the reels with various different jockeys, each sporting a different colour outfit and number, as well as stopwatches, rosettes, binoculars and horseshoes. You’ll also have the hustle and bustle of the crowd all eagerly anticipating the next race in the background.
The game is laid out with five reels and three rows worth of an interface, which also includes 30 different pay lines. Should you have interest in betting on less, you can lower these down. In addition, you can switch the integrated coin value between £0.01 and £0.50 per active line, while the bet level is also changeable from one to four. With this in mind, you are able to place a maximum overall wager of £60 per spin.
You’ll see what’s classed as the ‘Career Track’ circling around the reels. Career steps are awarded during the ‘Freespins Training Track’ round and the ‘A Day at the Races’ bonus feature. Advancing along 20 career steps will reward you with the ‘Champion of the Track’ career bonus. This particular feature is saved for 48 hours from your last spin, allowing you to continue with your advancement on another day.
Freespins are triggered by three or more icons of the horse showing up anywhere on the reels. A total of 10 freespins will be provided, and all wins during this round are doubled. You’ll also activate the ‘Training Track’, where for each scatter symbol on the main game, you’ll pass a horse on the track. Passing five horses in a session awards you with a single career step.
The rider with the red and white striped hat on is the game’s wild symbol, and this will substitute for all symbols, except scatter and bonus icons, to make as high a win as possible.
Finally, spinning three or more bonus symbols on an active winning pay line will trigger the ‘A Day at the Races’ bonus game. Here, you need to select a jockey to ride your horse in a race against three others. The better your horse’s finishing position, the more you win.
Netent have crafted together a jam-packed game with this one, offering up a graphically pleasing and thematically apt product.
