Day At The Races
Day at the Races - Game rules
Take a punt on our thoroughbred racing slot...
Bet on the outcome of five spinning reels. Match 3 or more icons on a win line to win a cash payout. Payouts increase depending on the number of matching symbols you have.
Winnings are credited to your account immediately. If you lose, by having insufficient matching icons on a win line, you will lose your stake amount.
1. To set the stake you can increase or decrease your stake amount. Click either the plus (+) or minus ( - ) area on the Stake button respectively. This transfers funds from your account (demo or real money) into the stake. The default stake is set to the value defined by the operator, which is increased or decreased with each click.
2. You have the opportunity of choosing up to 20 win lines per game. You can select how many win-lines to play with by either pressing the Lines button or the line indicator buttons (colour coded 1-20, situated on each side of he reels). Win lines will always pay from left to right only. The icon on the far left of the win line will act as a point of reference for finding at least two further matching icons as you move along the line towards the right. Each Win line has one unit of the stake associated with it, each line can win separately in any single game. If you ignore selecting either the Lines button or the line indicator buttons, then the default setting for the game will be used, which is all 20 lines.
Each click of the Lines button moves the line selection from 1 through to 20 respectively. Each click of the lines button adds one line to the selection. If you continue to click the lines button after 20, the cycle starts again at 1 line. The win line(s) and reel positions illuminate with each press of the button. Animations highlight each reel position and a “pathway” is shown making line selection clear and easy.
To make things even clearer each line has its own colour coded button/indicator; starting with 1 (red) through to 20 (violet/purple).
3. Click the Spin button to spin the reels to start the game. When the reels stop, any wins will be registered automatically and added to your account (If you collect the win).
There are seven buttons on the cabinet of the slot, they are as follows:
Day At The Races has a special “no lose” feature games which, when activated, allows you a chance to win between 2X - 10 000X the stake value of the line that triggered the feature.
Activating the special features
For special features to activate, a minimum of three consecutive feature icons must appear on an activated win-line. The wild card icon WILL count as a feature icon, If a feature icon is already present.
Note that a wild card will not double the value of the feature win; but it will substitute for a feature icon. If you get more than 3 consecutive icons on an activated win line, the likelihood of winning the larger payouts increases with each additional consecutive icon present.
A wild card will not double the value of the feature win; but it will substitute for a feature icon. If you get more than 3 consecutive icons on an activated win line, the likelihood of winning the larger payouts increases with each additional consecutive icon present.
The stake value of the line that was used to trigger the feature will be saved. Any winnings in the feature will be multiplied by the triggering line-stake amount, giving the total win for the feature.
The feature takes place in the space where the reels normally are.
Race Day Feature Description
When the feature loads you will see a list of 6 horses; choose a horse that you think will win by clicking on the name to select it.
The race will then begin automatically; you will see Rosettes above the horses showing prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. When the race has finished, you will win the prize associated with your horses finishing position (this will be displayed as a win multiple).
The win multiple associated with your chosen horses finishing position will be multiplied by the line stake that triggered the feature, giving the total win amount for the feature.
At the end of the special feature game, you will be offered the option to gamble on your total winnings for the cash-play/spin that triggered the feature (this amount comprises of any line wins for the spin that triggered the feature, plus the total win amount for the feature.)
At the end of the special feature game all winnings will be immediately credited to your account.
Customising the lines selection
It is possible to add or remove specIfic lines not only by pressing the lines button but also by selecting line indicators individually (labelled 1-20 and colour coded) which perform as buttons and can be used to add or remove win-lines from the selection. The individual line indicator buttons can click on (illuminated), or click off (not illuminated):
Note that If you have customised the win lines selected (by individually adding/removing win lines), and then click the lines button; all lines of a lesser number than the highest line number selected will be switched on plus the next win line up in sequence (as detailed in the beginning of step 2).
For example: If all win lines up to 10 were switched on, and then 4, 5 and 6 were turned off, and then the ‘lines’ button was pressed, lines 1 - 11 would ALL be turned on.
The following is a chart of the 20 win-line paths available for selection. When a win line is selected it is accompanied by an animation which clarIfies its position, as described previously.
The 20 win line Paths
NOTE: Win lines pay left to right ONLY (except scatter Icon).
Win Line Indicators
All line wins will be displayed in local currency in a coloured box by the respective line indicator.
About the Bet Max button
The Bet Max button is a feature which enables bigger spending customers to place large bets quickly. If you click the Bet Max button; any stake/lines previously set will be overridden.
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING:
When the bet max button is selected, the stake and lines will be set automatically as follows;
Bet Max = Maximum stake allowed/maximum number of lines playable AND playing all lines available.
Or put more simply;
Bet Max = Maximum stake (example: If1000) divided by the maximum number of lines available (20), multiplied by the maximum number of lines available per-game (20).
If1000 divided by 20 lines = If50 per line X 20 lines = If1000 total stake per-spin.
The Auto Spin button
The Auto-spin will not be available in certain regions due to current laws.
If you press the Auto button, this will automatically start each game without pressing the spin button. Each game will start automatically until you get a win or something that requires player intervention like free spins. In Auto mode the Spin button becomes the Stop button, which is selected to resume manual play again.
The Gamble Feature
With any win, you will be offered the opportunity to gamble it. With the gamble feature you can either double or quadruple a win If you correctly guess the colour or suit of the next card to be revealed respectively.
In the Feature, you now have 3 options:
1. Select/click one of the 4 suit buttons (which pay X4). A single card will be drawn. If you are correct, the current win will be multiplied by X4. If you are incorrect, you lose the win.
2. Select/click one of the 2 suit colour buttons, Red (Diamonds/Hearts) or Black (Spades/Clubs), which pay X2. If you are correct, the current win will be multiplied by X2. If you are incorrect, you lose the win.
3. You may click the collect button at any time to collect the win.
You may gamble your win until you either lose or reach the maximum win, which is If10 000 (variable by game operator). You may collect the win at any time. The talkback area informs the player of the maximum win.
You are not permitted to gamble a win If the successful result would exceed If10 000 (or the amount specIfied by the game operator).
Examples (assuming a If10 000 maximum win):
If you have won If3000, you may gamble using X2 buttons once only. The X4 buttons will be inactive because a X4 win would exceed If10 000.
If you have won over If5000, the win is automatically collected.
When is the Gamble option offered?
The Gamble option will be offered on the total amount of winnings achieved in a single cash spin/play. This means that If you get Line wins, free-spins and a Special Feature game in a single spin; each will be played out in turn, then the gamble option will be offered on the total amount won in the cash spin/play.
After any win, the Gamble button will blink; either select the option to gamble and money credited into your account will be used to play the Gamble Feature, or continue to resume normal play and click ’spin’.
Note: If you lose on the Gamble Feature, you will win nothing.
Scatters to free play
Note that If you lose any double up gamble, you will win nothing.
If 3 or more scatter icons appear ANYWHERE in the result of a game, the free play feature is triggered. The number of lines selected for play does not affect the way the scatters are triggered; the scatter icons can appear in any of the 15 visible reel positions.
The Wild Icon does not count as a scatter Icon
You need at least 3 scatters in a single result to trigger the Free Play feature. How many free plays you get depends on how many scatter icons trigger the feature:
Player A - gets 4 scatter icons in a result while playing 20 lines at If1 per-line.
If20 (total stake) X 5 (bonus for 4 scatters) = If100 bonus plus 20 free plays.
Player B- gets 5 scatter icons in a result while playing 1 line at If1 per-line.
£1 (total stake) X 10 (bonus for 5 scatters) = If10 bonus plus 25 free plays.
What happens If I get 3 or more Scatter Icons in a single game?
If you get 3, 4 or 5 scatters in the result of a single game, any other wins will be credited to your account, then the scatter icons will illuminate with a small animation. The talkback pane will inform you that you have won X (number depends on how many scatters in the result) free plays, then the free plays will begin automatically...you do not have to do anything.
Player A: gets 4 scatter icons in a result while playing 20 lines at 50p per-line. They get 20 consecutive free plays, playing all 20 lines at 50p per-line.
Player B: gets 3 scatter icons in a result while playing 1 line at If1 per-line. They get 15 consecutive free plays, playing 1 line at If1 per-line.
The Wild Icon x2 Bonus
The wild icon will substitute for any icon (except the scatter icon) to make the best win possible. In addition, the wild Icon doubles (X2) the paytable value of any win, including any appearances during the Free spin.
Two or more wild card icons being part of a win do not increase the bonus payout.
Note: 2 or more wild card icons being part of a win does not further increase the bonus payout.
Example: Any 2 win Icons and 2 wild icons consecutive (left to right) on a win line would create a payout for 4 of the "non wild" icons that created the win, plus a x2 wild win bonus.
Click the Paytable button to view the win multiples and icon list for the game. Payouts are shown in multiples of the winning line stake. A minimum of three consecutive icons from left to right on an active win line is required to win (the only exception is the scatter icon, which is explained in its own section).
This game has a Return to Player of 93.28%. System malfunction voids all pays.
