Slot Name: Derby Dollars
USA Players: Accepted
Derby Dollars is horse racing themed, a slot machine with 5 reels which was created by RTG. It also has an average number of pay lines, 20 of them being part of it. The horse racing theme is not unique to this slot, but I did enjoy it more in this case than I did on the other occasions when I played such a game. Top prizes of $3,333 manage to provide an unusual reward in exchange for your efforts.
Horse racing is popular enough in the United States, to ensure that this slot machine will have plenty of players there. I’m not sure if there other slots with this theme which US players can try out, but you can be sure about this one.
Betting & Jackpots
RTG can be counted on to keep things simple where betting is concerned. You have 20 lines, so you have 20 coins as well that you can use. Each coin has a top value of $1, with a minimum at $0.01. The result would be a maximum bet of $20, with a jackpot of $3,333.
The hero of any horse racing game is obviously the horse. It’s the case here as well, the game using its image for the wild symbol and to award the 3,333 coins top jackpot. It can pay for as little as one symbol that is on the 1st reel but gets it to form a full combo of five symbols if you want the big prize. As a wild, expect it to do its job, substituting for all other regular symbols, scatters excluded.
The same horse can be seen on the Gold Coin, the scatter feature of Derby Dollars. You will be rewarded with payouts as high as 50 times the bet when enough of these symbols are in place.
Another thing you can expect when the Coin appears in two to five positions is that it will trigger a round of free spins, with 5 to 25 rounds. Tripled prizes await for you inside this feature, plus extra scatters and wilds which appear on the reels. That top jackpot can go up to $9,999 if won during the free spins.
The action takes place on the racing track, and you can see in the far distance all the spectators that have come to see the race. There are appropriate symbols for about half of the available positions, with horses, gold medals, jockeys and horse owners among them. The rest get images of poker cards in different colors and with metal studs in them.
It’s not an impressive game by regular slot machine standards, but it’s one of the best options you have if you’re into horse racing.
