IGT CHAMPION RACEWAY SLOT REVIEW
This video slot is quite odd but in a rather interesting way. What makes us say that? Well, first of all, the theme. Champion Raceway was released on April 1, 2017 by developer IGT and features a horse racing theme. A smart move, we’d say, seeing as this theme is not that exploited in online slots.
The second thing that makes this video slot oddly intriguing is the setup. You’ll only see three reels with five paylines, meaning that it follows a more classic pattern, inspired by the vintage Vegas slots. You can try it out right here for free or you can bet real money on it in our Real Money Slots section.
HOW TO PLAY THE CHAMPION RACEWAY SLOT
Playable on both PC and mobile devices, Champion Raceway has a huge betting range. It starts from a mere 25 cents, the maximum amount being $500. And despite the vintage look and feel, the features are quite modern. But more on that later.
When it comes to the symbols present on the reels, the Champion Raceway slot has its reels filled with the classic grapes, lemons, plums, oranges and watermelon. You’ll also notice some 3X multipliers that will award you with 400 times your stake if you’re lucky enough to land 3 of them on a payline.
CHAMPION RACEWAY SLOT FEATURES
- Wild symbol. As you’ve probably guessed, the 3X multiplier icon is the Wild symbol of the game. It serves to replace any other symbol on the reels except for the Scatter and it can hand out some nice amounts of cash if you land a couple of these in the same spin.
- Scatter symbol. The different-colored horses are the Scatters of the slot. It cannot be replaced by the Wild symbol and it can trigger the Free Spins game mode.
- Raceway Derby feature. This bonus round can be triggered as soon as you land a Derby Ribbon on the reels. When this happens, the horse with the color displayed will advance one space. The first horse that reaches the finish line will reward you with a specific feature.
- Persistence feature. This is worth mentioning in case you ever close your game window by mistake. Champion Raceway comes with a persistence feature that will save your horses’ spots for future playthroughs.
- Victory Lap Bonus feature. This feature is determined by the winning horse. That being said, the pink horse will award you with 5 free spins with a multiplier between 2X to 10X. The blue horse will give you 10 free spins with multipliers between 4X and 13X, while the green, red and yellow horses will give you 20X, 60X or 10X your stake respectively.
All in all, if you’re a fan of both vintage slots and horse racing, this will be just the right slot for you. Fans of the classic and modern alike will be the most pleased, however. Mostly because Champion Raceway combines a vintage design and setup with modern and exciting features. So what are you waiting for? Get your horse ready and start betting on the best horse!
