Spinning Around the Derby Wheel

Imagine there was a game on the virtual casino floor that could combine your love of television gameshows with your love of virtual horse racing. Well, imagine no more, as the Derby Wheel slot is here!

The Derby Wheel

Set within a gameshow studio setting with a graphically simple neon light design, this three-row, three-reel game grid is the perfect gameshow meets horse racing slot. It’s ideal for all horse racing enthusiasts with an online casino account, ready and waiting to play some online slot games.

With a medium to high volatility rate, the aim of this slot is to simply back the right horse!

Symbols and their values

Upon the reels at play, there are only six symbols spinning into action, which are:

  • Lemon
  • Plum
  • Cherry
  • BAR
  • Lucky red 7
  • A wheel with a horse and its rider (scatter)

If you’re a keen online slot player, you may have noticed in the list of symbols above that there’s no mention of a wild symbol. However, this doesn’t affect the chances of potential wins and matches to be made on the reels. In fact, the values attached to the symbols help you on your way to reeling in the maximum win, worth up to 2,240x your wager.

Each symbol holds a different value:

  • Lemon – Worth up to 1x your wager
  • Plum – Worth up to 1.6x your wager
  • Cherry – Worth up to 2.4x your wager
  • BAR – Worth up to 3x your wager
  • Lucky red 7 – Worth up to 5x your wager
  • The wheel and horse scatter – Land three on a payline to unlock one of two bonus features available

Bonus Features

Before we delve into the bonus features waiting to be activated within the Derby Wheel slot – when you land three scatter symbols on the reels, all three symbols will fuse together to create one big wheel of fortune wheel, with segments either stating Horse Racing or Big Wheel. When spun, whichever segment the counter lands within, will determine which bonus feature you’ll be heading off to.

  • Big Wheel Feature

Activated by the wheel of fortune wheel, you’ll be offered one spin of the Big Wheel. The Big Wheel is comprised of various segments, which represent prizes such as multipliers and entry to the Horse Racing feature.

If you land on a multiplier, this will be added to your game total. If, however, you land on the Horse Racing segment, you’ll be transferred to the Horse Racing feature.

  • Horse Racing Feature

Activated by either the wheel of fortune wheel, or by landing on the Horse Racing entry segment found within the Big Wheel feature, once loaded, you’ll have the option to select up to three horses on screen.

Each horse can award you up to 2,237x your bet prizes. Prizes are multiplied if multiple horses are selected and finish in exact order.

However, if you do not wish to partake in this race, you can skip and you’ll be awarded a 40x wager prize.

There are four possible outcomes in this feature:

Trifecta – pick the first, second and third horse in exact order – prize: 2239x wager

Exacta – pick the first and second horse in order – prize: 1800x wager

Win – pick the winning horse – prize: 800x wager

No Bet – skip the race – prize: 40x wager
