Champion Raceway takes place on a 3×3 reel set with 5 paylines. Powered by IGT, it’s available to play from 25p to £500 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. This horse racing themed game has a vintage 3-reel set up with 5 modern bonus features.
Visually, it’s quite simple and has cartoon style graphics – it has a 3×3 reel set with a horse racing track above the reels. Pretty it ain’t but you should overlook that. In terms of symbols, they include classics such as lemons, grapes, plums, oranges and watermelons. You also have 3x multipliers – get 3 on a payline to win 10,000 coins (or 400 times your stake).
The 3x multiplier symbol is all important as these match any other symbol on the payline – when you get 1 as part of a winning combination, it will treble your outcome. If you get 2 or more, your wins will be subject to a massive 9x multiplier! This is known as the Wild Multipliers feature.
You also have the Raceway Derby feature – all symbols (except the 3x multiplier) can include the Derby Ribbon sub-symbol. When a Derby Ribbon sub-symbol lands on the reels, the horse with the colour showing advances 1 space. The 1st horse to reach the end of the race will reward you with a feature.
Champion Raceway benefits from a Persistence feature meaning that the positions of the horses are saved for future game sessions. When 2 or more horses finish at the same time, a photo finish takes place to determine the winner. The red horse will give you 60 times your stake whilst the green horse gives 20 times your stakes – the yellow horse gives you 10 times your stake. However, it’s all about the blue and pink horses which will trigger the Victory Lap Bonus feature:
The pink horse will give you 5 free spins with increasing multipliers from 2x to 10x:
- Free Spins 1 and 2: 2x to 5x multiplier applied
- Free Spins 3 and 4: 4x to 7x multiplier applied
- Free Spin 5: 6x to 10x multiplier applied
The blue horse rewards you with 10 free spins with increasing multipliers from 4x to 13x:
- Free Spins 1, 2, 3 and 4: 4x to 7x multiplier applied
- Free Spins 5, 6, 7 and 8: 6x to 10x multiplier applied
- Free Spins 9 and 10: 10x to 13x multiplier applied
As you can see, it’s all about the pink and blue horses finishing the race first in the Raceway Derby feature. Champion Raceway may be quite simple but it’s not to be taken lightly – it’s a highly volatile offering with a maximum win potential of 5,217 times your total stake! If you like horses, Novomatic’s Hold Your Horses is worth trying.
