Where to play?
Bookie of Odds is a Microgaming/Triple Edge Studios high variance 3D online slots with 10 paylines, 5 reels and pays a jackpot of 5,000x your stake (non-progressive) on a single spin.
It’s the perfect slots for players who enjoy games with a horse racing theme especially now that the Cheltenham Festival is just around the corner. It has 2 bonus rounds starting with a Free Spins mode that rewards you with up to 25 free falls and a Re-spins feature. The slot machine is now available at all our mobile casinos from £0.10 to £25 per spin.
The visual fidelity of Bookie of Odds is a bright affair with a simple design; once again it’s one of those slot machines that does the basics fairly well without over complicating matters.
Symbols on the reels stay true to the theme; you’ll see 3 jockeys (blue, purple and red), cards from 10 to Ace (low value), horse racing book (wild) and the bookie. The latter symbol is the premium symbol where 5 of the pop up on the reels at the maximum wager per spin, you’ll snag a cool 500x of your stake.
The theoretical return to player percentage of Bookie of Odds is 96.5%.
The wild symbol is the horse racing book, it’s not often one sees the wild serve as both the scatter and the wild. In other words it replaces adjacent symbols when it completes winning combinations and it is responsible for initiating the Free Spins feature. Also, land 5 wilds on the reels you’ll win a cash prize to the tune of 200x your stake.
The free spins is responsible for most of the action so it makes sense to try and trigger it as quickly as possible. Because the volatility of the slots is high up on the scale you’ll need a bit of elbow grease to pop this balloon.
How is the free spins feature triggered? The scatter icon is the horse racing book and you need 3, 4 or 5 of them in any position across the reels in the main game. The free spins awarded are proportionate to the scatters whereby 3 scatters gives you 10 free falls, 4 gives you 12 and 5 gives you a neat 25 free falls. It’s a rewarding free spins bonus since an unlimited amount of free spins are up for grabs here. That said, as long as 3 or more scatters appear, extra free spins will be added to your current tally.
Does the free spins have any special symbols/features? Yes it does; a symbol is randomly selected as an expanding wild that covers the entire reel for the big wins. One slots that comes to mind with a similar feature is Play N’ Go’s Book of the Dead.
The re-spin button is situated just below the reels and you can use it as you please to get a winning combination; plus it gives you access to the free falls feature but at a cost.
In terms of Bookie of Odds’ layout and mechanic there’s nothing much going on beneath the surface; basically it’s a replica of Microgaming’s Book of Oz (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/book-of-oz-slots-review/).
If you’re into horse racing it’s worth giving it a shot but don’t expect too much from it. Microgaming’s latest releases won’t light up the neighbourhood, on the upside it does offer a max win of 5,000x your stake on a single free spin.
Bookie of Odds FAQ
How many bonus rounds does the game have and which one is the most rewarding?
It has 2 bonus rounds namely Free Falls and Re-spins features that can be triggered via the conventional method. By this we mean landing 3 or more scatters or you can activate the free spins immediately at a cost. The free spins feature is the cash cow you can win you a hefty 5,000x your stake on each free spin.
How many spins is needed to trigger the Free Falls feature?
The volatility is an eight out of ten so expect to sweat a bit before the feature is initiated. If we can make a calculated guess, triggering the free spins will take approximately 80 or more spins. We suggest you only play the game for one cycle (a cycle is the amount of spins needed to trigger the free spins) because it becomes too volatile if you play it for 2 cycles or more.
At which online casino can I play the slots for real money?
Trada and 24K Casinos give you bonuses on deposit, comps every time you play, a rewards program, fast withdrawal turn around, superb customer service, regular free spin promotions on the latest slots releases and VIPs are given top-notch treatment.
