Introducing Microgaming’s Bookie Of Odds Slot

Bookie of odds
This month, Microgaming released its very own take on what an online video slot with a sports betting twist looks like. It should come as no surprise that the software giant should be the first to cross the divide; Microgaming did after all launch the very first online casino ever back in the 90’s.

Bookie of Odds is every horse racing fanatic’s dream slot, and on the reels there are colts, jockeys and of course a bookie. True to Microgaming’s style, even the opening scene of the game is exciting and one can feel that old familiar rush of excitement in the seconds just before the gates open and the majestic animals lurch from the confines of the gates. Flaring nostrils, the rush of adrenaline pumping through every spectator and track athlete’s veins, and the excitement of seeing one’s favourite horse storm over the finish line; the entire experience of a day at the races has been duplicated to perfection.

Filled With Special Features

Bookie of Odds features 5 reels and 10 paylines and was created exclusively for Microgaming by independent developers Triple Edge Studios. The game features a special single reel re-spin feature, which is very similar to a parlay bet. It’s a stroke of genius on the part of Triple Edge that this level of detail has been incorporated in order to give it that special “betting on a day at the races” feel.

Bookie of Odds features a wild as well as a scatter symbol, and these are combined into one symbol with dual functionality. The special symbol is represented by the gold-coloured Tip Book, and three or more anywhere on the reels will trigger 10, 12 or 25 free spins, depending on how many special symbols activated the free spins round. Once the bonus game has been triggered, an expanding symbol is revealed, and this symbol is able to extend over entire reels. It acts as a win boost during the bonus round. The slot’s top jackpot is a 5,000x multiplier.

The special single-reel respin feature adds a definite thrill to the proceedings. The cost of spinning the single reel varies, depending on the ante that is determined by the surrounding reels. What a brilliant way of incorporating the variable values of line bets!

Bookie of Odds is making a name for itself at all Microgaming-powered casinos and can be enjoyed on desktop, and smartphone or tablet.
