Day At The Races is a 20 line slot machine. You bet on the outcome of five reels, which spin and then come to rest - giving the result. Match 3 or more symbols on a win line to win a cash payout. Payouts increase depending on the number of matching symbols you have. Winnings are credited your account immediately. If you lose, by having insufficient matching symbols on a win line, you will lose your stake amount.
How to play
Set the stake To increase or decrease your stake amount, click either the plus (+) or minus ( - ) area on the Stake button respectively. This transfers funds from your account (demo or real money) into the stake. The default stake is set to the value defined by the operator, which is increased or decreased with each click.
Note: There is an alternative stake button which increases the stake with each click (no minus button). If you go over your intended stake, continuing to click the Stake button will eventually return the stake amount to the minimum again.
Select the number of Win-lines to play
Traditionally, the win line is the centre line running across the reels. Symbols must appear on the win line as indicated on the paytable in order to win. This game allows the possibility of choosing up to 20 win lines per game. You select how many win-lines to play with the Lines button. Each line you choose will have one unit of the stake you have selected (in step 1) attached to it, as each line can win separately in any single game. If you ignore the Lines button, then the default setting for the game will be used, which is all 20 lines. Each click of the Lines button moves the line selection from 1 through to 20 respectively. Each click of the lines button adds one line to the selection. If you continue to click the lines button after 20, the cycle starts again at 1 line. The win line(s) and reel positions illuminate with each press of the button. Animations highlight each reel position and a pathway is shown making line selection clear and easy. To make things even clearer each line its own progressively colour coded button/indicator; starting with 1 (red) through to 20 (violet/purple).
Customising the lines selection
It is possible to add or remove specific lines from those selected with the lines button. The line indicators (labelled 1-20 and colour coded) serve as buttons which can be used to add or remove win-lines from the selection. The individual line buttons are click on (illuminated), click off (not illuminated). To remove a selected line, click on the respective line number To add a line, click on the respective line number.
NOTE: If you have customised the win lines selected (by individually adding/removing win lines), and then click the lines button; all lines of a lesser number than the highest line number selected will be switched on plus the next win line up in sequence (as detailed in the beginning of step 2) . For example, if all win lines up to 10 were switched on, and then 4, 5 and 6 were turned off, and then the 'lines' button was pressed, lines 1 - 11 would ALL be turned on.
Win Line Indicators
All line wins will be displayed in local currency in a coloured box by the respective line indicator.
About the Bet Max button
The Bet Max button is a feature which enables bigger spending customers to place large bets quickly. If you click the Bet Max button; any stake/lines previously set will be overridden.
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING: When the bet max button is selected, the stake and lines will be set automatically as follows;

To spin the reels/start the game

The Auto Spin button
If you press the Auto button, this will automatically start each game without pressing the spin button. Each game will start automatically until you get a win or something that requires player intervention like free spins. In Auto mode the Spin button becomes the Stop button, which is selected to resume manual play again. If the Auto-Spin is not available, the game will have 6 buttons only.
The Double Up option
With any win, you will be offered the opportunity to double up. The double up is essentially a gamble feature in which you can double or quadruple a win if you correctly guess the colour or suit of the next card to be drawn respectively. If you do not wish to try the double up feature, pressing the collect button will collect the win and resume normal play. If you want to give it a try; click the gamble button to start the feature. You now have 3 options:
- Select/click one of the 4 suit buttons (which pay X4). A single card will be drawn. If you are correct, the current win will be multiplied by X4. If you are incorrect, you lose the win.
- Select/click one of the 2 suit colour buttons, Red (Diamonds/Hearts) or Black (Spades/Clubs), which pay X2. If you are correct, the current win will be multiplied by X2. If you are incorrect, you lose the win.
- You may click the collect button (normally the spin button) at any time to collect the win. You may gamble your win until you either lose or reach the maximum win, which is £10 000 (variable by game operator). You may collect the win at any time. The talkback area informs the player of the maximum double up win. You are not permitted to gamble a win, if the successful result would exceed the Max win amount.
When is Double Up Offered?
Double Up will be offered on the total amount of winnings achieved in a single cash spin/play. This means that if you get Line wins, free-spins and a Special Feature game in a single spin; each will be played out in turn, then Double up will be offered on the total amount won in the cash spin/play. After any win, the Gamble button will blink and the auto spin button will become labelled as Collect; select gamble to play double up, or collect to collect the win and resume normal play again. Note that if you lose any double up gamble, you will win nothing. Scatters to free play If 3 or more scatter icons (Sleepy Horse) appear ANYWHERE in the result of a game, the free play feature is triggered. The number of lines selected for play does not affect the way the scatters are triggered; the scatter icons can appear in any of the 15 visible reel positions. The Wild Icon does not count as a scatter Icon You need at least 3 scatters in a single result to trigger the Free Play feature. How many free plays you get depends on how many scatter icons trigger the feature:
3 scatters = 15 free plays plus x 2 the stake per-line that triggered the free plays 4 scatters = 20 free plays plus x 5 the stake per-line that triggered the free plays 5 scatters = 25 free plays plus x10 the stake per-line that triggered the free plays.
Example: Player A- gets 4 scatter icons in a result while playing 20 lines at £5 per-line. £5 (line stake) X 5 (bonus for 4 scatters) = £25 bonus plus 20 free plays What happens if I get 3 or more Scatter Icons in a single game? If you get 3, 4 or 5 scatters in the result of a single game, any other wins will be credited to your account, then the scatter icons will illuminate with a small animation. The talkback pane will inform you that you have won X (number depends on how many scatters in the result) free plays, then the free plays will begin automatically, you do not have to do anything.
Free plays are free spins that start automatically and consecutively until they are exhausted. Before the free plays start the talkback area will display the all the free spins remaining on the left of the display. The right side will display the total win amount generated from the free spins. If you get 3 or more scatter icons in a single spin during the free plays, you will receive the line stake bonus as described above and the extra free plays will be added to the existing total and played out immediately after the first set of free plays. Extra free plays are possible more than once in a feature.
The stake and number of lines selected in the game that triggered the free plays will be used for the duration of the free play period. Free Spin wins that contain a wild card pay X2 the standard paytable win; the same rule applies in normal play.
Example: Player A: gets 4 scatter icons in a result while playing 20 lines at 50p per-line. They get 20 consecutive free plays, playing all 20 lines at 50p per-line. The Wild Icon X2 Bonus The wild icon will substitute for any icon (except the scatter icon) to make the best win possible. In addition, the wild Icon doubles (X2) the paytable value of any win it is apart of; including any Normal paytable win and any Free Spin win.
Note: 2 or more wild card icons being part of a win does not further increase the bonus payout.
Example: Any 2 win Icons and 2 wild icons consecutive (left to right) on a win line would create a payout for 4 of the non wild icons that created the win, plus a x2 wild win bonus. Special features and functionality Day At The Races has a special no lose feature game which, when activated, allows you a chance to win between 2X - 10 000X the stake value of the line that triggered the feature.
To activate the special features
For special features to activate, a minimum of three consecutive feature icons (Tic Tac Charlie) must appear on an activated win-line. The wild card icon WILL count as a feature icon, if a feature icon is already present. Note that a wild card will not double the value of the feature win; but it will substitute for a feature icon. If you get more than 3 consecutive icons on an activated win line, the likelihood of winning the larger payouts increases with each additional consecutive icon present. The stake value of the line that was used to trigger the feature will be saved. Any winnings in the feature will be multiplied by the triggering line-stake amount, giving the total win for the feature The feature takes place in the space where the reels normally are.
