Microgaming has released Bookie of Odds, the 10-payline slot who combines two of our favourite gambling types: slots and horse racing betting. If you’re a fan of these two pastimes, you will really enjoy this casino game, for the payouts in particular. Let’s go through the gameplay together and see its real potential.
It is important for all bookies to have a book where they write the bets. That's why the Book symbol in this slot will act both as a Scatter and a Wild. When it acts as a Wild, it substitutes for all symbols on the reels, with no exception. As a Scatter, it pays anywhere it lands on the reels. In addition, all Scatter wins get multiplied by the total stake and are additionally added to the line bets.
But, the Scatter also triggers the Free Spins. Land 3 Books and you will trigger 10 Free Spins. In case you land 4 Scatters you get 12 Free Spins. But if you’re lucky enough to land 5 Scatters, you will trigger 25 Free Spins. The Free Spins can be retriggered.
At the start of the Free Spins, you are awarded the Special symbol randomly. This Special symbol has the ability to expand when a win is completed and cover the reel it lands on and pays when you land matching symbols anywhere on the line. The wins you get with the Expanding Special symbol are added to the regular Free Spins wins additionally.
But there is something new that Microgaming included in this slot for the base game, the Respin opportunity. As you load the game, at the bottom of all reels you will see Respin written in white. This Respin option gives you the chance to respin any reel as many times as you like at the end of each spin for the chance to complete a win. Respins require an additional bet, and at the end of the Respin, you are paid for wins that involved the respun reel.
Theme & Design
Bookie of Odds is a slot that features a horse-racing betting theme, so it is expected to portray a horse race in the background.
On the reels, you will see the Bookie which is also the highest-paying regular symbol, with his hands in the air, looking like an Italian guy doing his Italian body language stuff. Then you get a jockey set on a red background, which is the Special symbol, and two other jockeys on purple and blue backgrounds, as the medium value symbols. For the lowest-paying ones, you get playing card symbols.
Wagering & Paylines
To place your bets in Bookie of Odds, you need to select the coins you want to bet and their size. With 1 coin worth $0.01, your minimum bet for 10 paylines is $0.10. For 5 coins worth $0.50, the maximum bet you could place is $25.00.
5 Bookie symbols pay $12,500.00 for the highest bet, while 5 Scatters, as well as 5 Special symbols, pay $5,000.00. The two other jockeys give you $1,875.00. However, Microgaming promises a 5,000x the total bet payouts for this game. In money terms, this means that the maximum payout you could get is $125,000.00.
