Microgaming Prepares for a Day at the Races with Bookie of Odds Slot
The Isle of Man-headquartered developer of online casino content, Microgaming, has announced it will expand its portfolio of video slot games by adding a brand-new release to the offering.
The new game is titled Bookie of Odds and is developed exclusively for Microgaming by Triple Edge Studios, an independent game studio that has so far launched a number of slots for the renowned developer, including Wicked Tales: Dark Red and Book of Oz.
Exciting Features on Offer
Get ready for a day at the races with Bookie of Odds, a five-reel three-row slot with a total of 10 pay-lines. This is a high variance slot, which means the wins will be less frequent, but worth waiting for. The action-packed gaming experience is further boosted with a vast array of exciting features, such as the Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, and the REEL BET re-spin, with the latter having the potential of being extremely lucrative.
All those punters entering the betting ring will be treated to a unique tote board of symbols matching the game’s horse racing theme, including colourful colts, jockeys, and the Bookie himself.
The Bookie’s Tip Book serves as both the Wild and the Scatter, giving players more chances of ending their spin with a win. A usual, a minimum of three Scatters is required to trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 12, or 25 free spins depending on the number of Scatter icons used to activate the feature. Once the feature is activated, the book will open up and reveal a randomly chosen expanding symbol, which can cover entire reels and increase the winning up to 5,000 the triggering wager!
The feature can be re-triggered with the help of 3 or more Scatter symbols.
The new re-spin features is definitely an exciting addition to this game, as it brings a strategic edge to the whole experience. Using this option, players can spin individual reels at an additional cost, but more importantly, they can use it to complete winning lines in both the Main Gama and the Free Spins.
No doubt this release will quickly become popular among punters around the world. The game has already gone live, which means it can be played at any online casino powered by Microgaming.
