Derby Dollars Slot

Of all of the events that are known for betting, horse racing is one of the biggest and most popular. The Derby Dollars video slot, produced by Realtime Gaming, is based around the idea of betting on horse races. Horse racing is well-known for allowing players to use betting strategies that reduce big swings, and the low-volatility nature of Derby Dollars reflects that. While you'll still have shots at some nice jackpots in this game, most of the emphasis is on small and medium wins that come frequently.

As you might expect, the Horse symbol is wild in Derby Dollars. There are a lot of winning combinations in this game that only require two symbols in a row, so getting a wild on one of the first couple of reels all but guarantees a win. If you pick up five Horses on an activated payline, then you'll get the highest regular payout of 3,333 times your line bet. You can also pick up a 2,000x prize for getting five of the Lady symbol and a 1,000x prize for five of the Jockey or Scattered coin symbol. All of the top payouts are close together except for the random progressive jackpot. The value for this jackpot is always displayed at the top of the screen just like betting odds for current races at the track.

Getting two or more of the scattered Coin symbol activates the free spins bonus feature. You'll get 5, 10, 15 or 25 free spins for two, three, four or five Coins, respectively. All of your wins get a 3x multiplier, and the free spins games have extra wild symbols and scatters. Overall, Derby Dollars is a great game that hits winning combinations more often than most video slots.
