The Bookie of Odds online slot is a great way to get to the horses without leaving home! The game is very similar to Book of Oz, also a collaboration between Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios, and includes identical features in the re-spins and expanding symbols. Of course, the horse-racing theme is not new to players, we’ve seen it before in Netent’s Scudamore's Super Stakes released earlier this year.
Underneath each reel you will see a ‘Re-spin’ button that will allow you to re-spin that reel for the value displayed (proportional to your stake and any potential wins). You can spin reels individually as many times as you like, however when in Autoplay the feature won’t work, nor if you change your stake after the initial spin.
This feature kicks in when 3, 4, or 5 golden book symbols appear anywhere in view, granting you 10, 12, or 25 free spins respectively. The expanding symbol feature comes into play here, and before the round starts, one of the standard symbols is randomly chosen to expand to become fully stacked when involved in a winning payline. Note that free spins can be re-triggered.
The Bookie of Odds slot machine will appeal to horse racing enthusiasts but sadly lacks originality and depth. Since it mimics the winning recipe of Book of Oz with its free spins and enhanced re-spins, players will still have an enjoyable experience, not forgetting the max jackpot of 5000x your stake that can be won on a single spin.
