Champion of the Track Slot review
Champion of the Track is one of the better looking slots to be themed around horse racing, and it doesn’t do too bad feature wise either.
Once Champion of the Track finishes loading, what you will notice is a slot machine with the reels in the middle, and with a horse racing track going all around it. There are some very cool features inside, some of them even using the horse racing theme to make it interesting for the fans of this sport. You will find inside the game free spins, scatter symbols and wilds, with the layout sporting 5 reels/30 lines. The top jackpot you can get inside is at $20,000.
I’ve played a number of slots with a similar theme in the past, and the thing that stuck with me was the thought that nobody could get them right. It was probably just the fact that they were older games, and the designs dated. Champion of the Track gets it right, and it uses only themed symbols to achieve it. The quality of the design is excellent, with a lot of details built into the slot. It’s not just a pretty picture and the reels, there are actually a lot of things going on, on the screen.
Between 1 and 120 coins are part of the wagers you can place in this slot. The 30 lines get a maximum of 4 coins each one, that’s if you decide to activate all of them. You also make the decision concerning the coin value, which will go up to $0.50. What you get in the end is a line bet of $2, with the total at $60.
One of the most interesting things about this slot is the career mode, which allows you to advance in time, through 20 different career steps. You win mystery prizes along the way, and a Career Bonus if you get the Champion Trophy. The advancement is even saved in the game, for a maximum of 48 hours since your last spin, giving you a reason to come back.
The way to advance in this career is through the bonus game, which gives you cash prizes and lets you go up by one to four steps. You need 3+ bonus symbols to trigger the feature, on an active line and starting from the left. A horse race occurs, with the finishing position deciding how much you win.
Free spins aren’t missing either, giving payouts multiplied by 2x during the 10 free rounds. Trigger them with 3+ scattered Horse icons. Free spins also help you advance in your career.
Wilds aren’t missing from the slot either, and they’re actually the ones to give the top jackpot, which pays at 10,000x.
It’s a must play game if you enjoy slots with horse racing themes, and it’s probably one of the better thought out titles from its category.
