Special Features

The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol which is represented by an image of a gold book which is, of course, the bookie’s collection of hot tips. This symbol substitutes for all symbols in the game and acts as both a Wild and a Scatter. It is one of the highest paying symbols in the game as if you happen to land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you will be treated to a fine payout worth 200X your wager.

As you play the game, you will notice a ‘Respin’ button below each reel. This allows you to respin a reel one at a time at the end of any spin. Each respin comes at a cost with the price displayed just below the ‘Respin’ button. If you choose to change your bets at any time then this will deactivate this feature.

To trigger the special Free Spins feature, you must land 3 or more Wild symbols on the same spin. The more Wilds you land then the more Free Spins you will be given. For example, 3 awards 10 Free Spins, 4 give 12 Free Spins, and 5 will get you a nice haul of 25 Free Spins. In this bonus round, a randomly selected symbol is chosen to fill an entire reel and pays out when matching symbols land anywhere on a line. This symbol only expands when part of a winning combination and unfortunately the Wild symbol is the only symbol that cannot expand here. A pleasing aspect of this bonus feature is that it can be retriggered again and again so in theory, you can get unlimited Free Spins.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

This game features crisp visuals as it takes place right in front of a racetrack with a packed stadium in the background along with some jockeys riding their horses just behind the reels. You can almost feel the anticipation in the air as the horses frantically gallop towards the finish line! Symbols used in this game consist of the Bookie, a Book, a bunch of Jockeys, as well as classic A – 10 icons. The animations are slick as symbols fly down the reels and are highlighted by a bright green line to display the payline when forming a winning combination.

The music features dramatic trumpet-style sound effects which fit in really well with the sports theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game features 10 paylines, a good RTP ranging between 96.31% - 96.5%, and a top maximum payout worth 5,000X your total bet.

Our Verdict on Bookie of Odds

This game is made by up-and-coming software provider Triple Edge Studios in partnership with Microgaming and is a fun-filled experience at the race track. It features excellent graphics, exciting gameplay, and just about the right amount of bonus features to keep you spinning those reels again and again. The Respin button is a novel feature and can help you to trigger the Free Spins feature quite easily but be warned that it can cost you quite a bit to do so. Speaking of Free Spins, it is here where you can rack up some serious wins with expanding symbols on the reels to greatly enhance your odds of taking home a huge cash payout. It’s also quite satisfying to see that there is no limit as to how many Free Spins you can get. We should also mention that the top prize for this game is a whopping 5,000X your stake! In terms of variance, I found this slot to be High so be sure to have lots of patience and bankroll on hand before visiting the bookie and his book of secrets in this game!
