If you didn’t know already, Bucky Bingo is all about the horsing action. Our very own mascot, Bucky, is a brown stallion with lush, bright prink hair. Her starry eyes aren’t the only flashy thing about her either, she can also be quite the diva at times!
As we are big fans of horses, what better time to introduce our favourite horse racing slots, than when the Grand National is just around the corner. First run in 1839, the Grand National has grown to become one of the most prestigious horse racing events of the calendar year and it is held every April, over the course of three days.
At the notorious Aintree Racecourse, fans from around the country love flocking to the venue to witness the acclaimed action on show. The course is ran over larger fences compared to ordinary tracks and when the horses take to the field, anything can happen on the day. Of all the races taking place though, the one that receives the most attention is the National Steeple Chase on the Saturday, where a prize of £1m is given to the winner!
As you can tell, we are quite the experts when it comes to our horse knowledge, so we have decided to provide a bit of information to you on our awesome horse racing slots. Bucky has picked out her favourite two that are available to play right here at Bucky Bingo. Carry on reading to find out more!
Arguably the best online horse racing slot out there right now – Past the Post. Become a spectator at the races with this Eyecon casino game, as it is set inside an animated race track! There is a lush green backdrop that helps brighten up the reels that are miraculously gold plated. In terms of the animated visuals, the biggest highlight about Past the Post slots are the horse racing themed symbols.
Inevitably, there are racing horses to be found inside the reels, all of whom have their own individual payout value. Of course, the horse with the ‘number one ribbon’ is the highest-paying of them all, as five of these across a payline will trigger a 32 coin payout! There are always consolation prizes in racing though and the 2nd and 3rd placed horses still hold a high payout value. Alongside the horses with ribbons, there are two more to be found inside the reels – a brown and grey horse. Their face gestures really are a picture!
You can’t have a horse without their partner in crime though, and Eyecon have also created a jockey symbol, whilst also including a trainer, a spectator and a lady of the races. There are plenty of impressive images to keep track of when playing and this is what makes Past the Post such a quality horse racing slot.
Are there any exciting bonus features though? Hold your horses, we have you covered. Inside this casino game, there are potentially free spins up for grabs. This bonus game can only be triggered by the tote bag symbols, with three of these symbols unlocking the feature. If activated, you are given the choice of selecting a horse, jockey and the number of free spins you want to play with. These are the options that you will be given:
So, the animated visuals are exciting and there is an awesome bonus feature. What more do you want? Well, how about this. The Past the Post slot has 243 different ways to win and the RTP is 95.2%! You can play the horse racing slot from a minimum of 25p per spin and it is available right here at Bucky Bingo. Bucky isn’t horsing around with this one!
Alongside our fabulous horse racing slot, we also offer you the chance to play Virtual Horses. This is the perfect game mode for those looking for a slice of the racing action, without actually visiting a physical track! Inside this game, you will be provided with a list of horse’s names and their odds of winning. For example,
Hello Sunshine – Win Odds: 3/1
Horse of Fortune – Win Odds: 4/1
Life on Mars – Win Odds: 5/1
If you wish to bet on the horse to win, select a wagering stake via the poker chips on the side of the screen and click ‘Play’. Alternatively, instead of betting on an outright winner, there is also the ‘Place odds’ tab. This market means that you are betting for your horse to ‘place’, which is the top three positions of the race (1st, 2nd or 3rd). As you are staking a wager for a potential of three places, the price will be smaller than the outright winning odds.
When the bet is placed, click ‘Play’ and you will see the virtual horses run across the track on your screen. Remember though, these are ‘virtual’ horses and the winnings are generated randomly. There is no skill or strategy involved with picking a winner and never think that you are ‘due’ a win.
We may be big fans of the horse racing slots, but that isn’t all we have to offer on our site. Here at Bucky Bingo, customer satisfaction is our number one priority and one way that we deliver this is through a wide selection of online games for you to choose from. If the racing track isn’t your scene, you may prefer the stormy seas in Pirate Plunder or the snowy conditions of Snow Queens Magic.
Are you a new player here at Bucky Bingo? You will be delighted to hear about our generous welcome package. You can receive £20 worth of gaming bonuses and 70 free spins on the player favourite slots of Rainbow Riches if you stake at least £10 in each of your first three deposits.
