The jockey with the green helmet is the jackpot symbol and if you are lucky to land five of them on an active payline then you’ll walk away with a jackpot f up to 25,000 coins.
Free Spins Round
The free spins round is triggered when three or more of the blue jockey symbols. Three icons wins you five spins and you’ll receive 10 free spins for four jockeys and 20 free spins for five of the symbols. All wins during the free spins round have a 3x multiplier applied.
Horse Race Game
This bonus game is activated when you get three or more of the grey horse symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll be presented with three horse and you need to choose which one you think will win the race. As the horses set off you get to watch all the action and see evidence of the result through a photo finish. A notice board will then inform what, if anything, you’ve won. The maximum prize for this round is 10,000 coins.
A Day at the Derby is a fun game to play with a few nice touches thrown in for good measure. Rival Gaming has achieved the perfect mix of game play on the reels and in the quirky bonus feature.
