Derby Wheel includes two bonus features; one will be familiar, and the other is an unseen innovation in online slot history.
Land 3 scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger the Fortune Wheel, which spins to give you access to the Big Wheel or Horse Racing feature.
The Big Wheel is a bonus wheel that spins to award you multipliers worth up to 200x or access to its companion feature.
If you trigger Horse Racing, you will be presented with a futuristic racetrack with robotic horses. Here you can choose from 4 betting options where you get to get to back the horses that you think will win.
You can choose No Bet, where you forego the whole race for a guaranteed a 40x prize. The Win option is low volatility, and here you choose the winning horse with the potential to win up to 800x your stake.
The medium volatility option is Exacta, where you pick the number 1 and 2 winning horses in the correct order for prizes worth up to 1800x your stake. For the boldest of players, the Trifecta option offers high volatility and the chance to win up to 2240x your stake by choosing the number 1, 2 and 3 winning horses in the correct order.
Derby Wheel slot is an interesting release from Play’n GO that brings new and interesting elements to the fruit machine genre. The first thing that struck me about this game was its eye-popping 3D graphics that are a departure from the flat, classic looks that 3-reel slots normally have.
Speaking of the features, the scatters land frequently, giving you simultaneous shots at triggering the Big Wheel and Horse Race bonus rounds. The Big Wheel is great for boosting your bankroll, and I easily managed to land the maximum 200x multiplier, although that may just have been my luck. The Horse Race feature presented far more challenging odds, and being able to choose a strategy, and volatility added a compelling interactive element to the game.
Derby Wheel is an intriguing concept with compelling gameplay, and its top potential prize per spin of $224 000 is just one in a list of reasons you should probably give it a spin.
