Isle of Man – Microgaming storms out of the gates with Bookie of OddsBy Phil - 6 March 2019
Microgaming has launched Bookie of Odds, developed by Triple Edge Studios exclusively for Microgaming.
Preparing his lucrative ledger for the greatest show on turf, Bookie of Odds is a five-reel, 10-payline, high-volatility online slot stocked with wilds, scatters, free spins and the rewarding REELBET respin feature that’ll have players chomping at the bit as the chase for wins begins. Racegoers entering the betting ring will be treated to a distinctive tote board of charming symbols with a horseracing theme, including colourful colts, jockeys, and the eponymous Bookie.
Functioning as both a wild and a scatter, the gilded Bookie’s Tip Book symbol gives players a greater chance to land the spoils, with three or more triggering 10, 12 or 25 free spins. When triggered, the book opens up to randomly reveal an expanding symbol which can stretch to cover entire reels if landed, potentially boosting wins throughout the bonus round up to 5,000 times the player’s bet. Adding furlongs of fortunes, a further three or more Book symbols will retrigger the rewarding free spins, nudging players even closer to the winner’s enclosure.
The riveting respin feature adds a strategic edge to the gameplay. Allowing players to spin individual reels at a variable cost, the thrilling feature opens up the possibility of connecting some truly winning lines in both the base game and in free spins.
A hot tip for punters everywhere, Bookie of Odds gallops past the post on Wednesday 6 March ready for the races, available exclusively for Microgaming operators.
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said: “Bookie of Odds is set to be a real front-runner, capturing all the spectacle and thrills of the horseracing season. The excellent respin feature gives players a chance to increase their win potential in the game, especially during free spins where high-paying expanding symbols can provide winning opportunities for players to achieve a full reel blackout. This fantastic new addition from the team at Triple Edge Studios is a spirited take on the popular sport, with proven and dynamic gameplay features that’ll keep players on track for a rewarding day at the races.”
Brendan Walton, Design Lead at Triple Edge Studios, said: “And they’re off! We are delighted to introduce Bookie of Odds, our feature-packed celebration of the race day experience. Enhanced with vibrant graphics, the heady atmosphere of the racecourse is brought to life with our exciting REELBET respin mechanic and free spins, with the chance for players to win up to 5,000 times their initial bet.”
