A Day at the Derby
A Day at the Derby Slots
The Kentucky Derby takes place every year on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs. This race for 3 year olds sees the first of the three famed Triple Crown races on the US horse racing calendar and is known as the ‘Run for the Roses’, a blanket of roses draped across the winner of the race. This Rival Gaming designed slot takes a light hearted look at the days racing, featuring many symbols relevant to the race. These include the racegoers, the winning trophy, horse shoes and binoculars, the mint julep which is traditionally drunk at Churchill Downs and a betting receipt. The slot features both a free spins round and a bonus game where you’ll see the horses in action.
On entering the game you’ll immediately notice the famed Twin Spires of Churchill Downs peeking above the reels while a leaved garland frames the bold, silver title of the slot. The win line indicators to either side of the reels are designed in the same way as the digital race position displays found at tracks, certainly adding an air of authenticity to the game. The reels themselves are backed in green and all the symbols are designed in a cartoon style, giving the game some humour alongside the racing theme – take one look at the rather goofy grey horse and you certainly wouldn’t want to bet any money on it! The accompanying sound is the roar of the race day crowd which adds to the excitement of the game.
