New iSoftBet Online Casino Game: Racetrack Riches
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day and as most racetracks around the world begin their horse racing seasons, iSoftBet released Racetrack Riches.
The latest online casino slot game from iSoftBet is taking Aussie online casinos by storm. Racetrack Riches is not just a fun game that combines the luck of the Irish with the fun of horse racing, it also has a special Megaboard feature.
Combining Slot Play with Board Game Action
Racetrack Riches begins with a message: “This race season, prepare for the chase of your life.”
It is not quite as serious as it sounds, as the jockeys are riding toy horses. But the excitement of gaming is certainly there. Complete with three in-game modifiers, Racetrack Riches offers wilds, scatters, multipliers, and free spins.
The big feature of Racetrack Riches, however, is the Megaboard. This randomly-triggered feature pushes the jockey around the board for multipliers and other prizes. By avoiding being caught, the Irish jockey at the center of the game can try for a third lap around the board for even bigger prizes.
iSoftBet Head of Games Mark Claxton noted that Racetrack Riches was released just before the prestigious jump festival at Cheltenham in the UK. “Players who like a flutter at the Festival will love pitting their wits on our new game, attempting to complete three laps of our course and reach the finish line with the potential for massive winnings.”
Claxton also noted that Racetrack Riches Megaboard is only an example of other games to come in 2020, ones that will “push the boundaries and launch features that players want.”
Racetrack Riches Overview
The Irish theme is evident in the soundtrack for the game as well as the green track upon which the Irish jockey rests and runs. (By allowing the game to sit idle, the jockey and his toy horse fall asleep.) The overall color scheme is very vibrant and bright but featuring green and gold.
Just released during the first week of March, Racetrack Riches is a 5-reel game with three rows and 20 paylines.
This slot game offers the usual controls, such as for muting the sound, setting auto spins, and adjusting bets.
Payouts for Racetrack Riches
The lowest coin value for playing this slot is $0.01, but with 20 paylines, that means the minimum bet is $0.20. Bets then increase to $0.40, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $10.00, and $20.00.
When playing the minimum bet of $0.20, these are the payouts for various symbols in the game with five on a payline:
- Racetrack Riches logo = $5.00
- Champagne bottle = $3.00
- Horseshoe = $3.00
- Hat filled with coins = $2.00
- Beer mug = $2.00
- Red heart or green spade = $1.00 each
- Yellow diamond or blue club = $0.50 each
Racetrack Riches Features and Gameplay
One friendly symbol that players want to see is the wild, which can replace any other symbol besides the scatter. Another symbol is the mystery pot of coins that transforms into other symbols – excluding scatters – during base play or Megaboard action.
The scatter symbol is the gold champion’s trophy that reads “bonus” underneath. These can appear on the first, third, and fifth reels, and three of them trigger the Megaboard bonus round.
If scatter symbols appear on the first and third reels but miss the fifth one, the jockey may run across the reels to trigger a respin on the fifth reel. It is a second chance to trigger the Megaboard.
There are modifiers that bring more excitement to regular spins. One is the jockey wild, which triggers the jockey to run across the reels and create random wilds. This can also happen after a losing spin, as the jockey can create a win by turning losing symbols into winning ones.
Speaking of the Megaboard, this bonus round begins with the player rolling the dice twice. The jockey then moves around the game board per the numbers rolled. The possible spots on the board on which the jockey may land include:
- Added wilds (for remainder of bonus round)
- Added mysteries (for remainder of bonus round)
- Removed symbols (for remainder of bonus round)
- All wins x multiplier (for remainder of bonus round)
- Win spins guarantees a win
- Big Money bonus
For every dice roll, the player earns a free spin. As play continues, the jockey tries to complete three laps around the board. If he does so, he triggers the Big Money payout. Players can then spin the trophies to multiply the total of all the Megaboard winnings by up to 10x.
