Graphics & Sound
Net Entertainment always strives to bring great quality graphics and lively sounds to their avid online slots players. Champion of the Track is a must-love slot game that is created especially for those who love horses and the thrill of the win in horseracing. The background setting is absolutely similar to that of a real racehorse track. The symbols are drawn just like what you will see in classic pastel-colored cartoons. The colors are perfectly balanced, and due to the overall theme color being green, you will not strain your eyes when you play this game for hours. The overall graphic design of Champion of the Track primarily showcases the color green, with other colors such as red, purple, blue, brown, and yellow.
The constant background music when you are playing Champion of the Track slot game is the usual crowd chatter that you normally hear in live horse racing events. A short, celebratory, trumpet-like music and the snorting of a horse will fill your ears whenever you manage to hit the Wild symbol (Jockey).
There are no card deck symbols available in the Champion of the Track online video slot game. The regular symbols you will find in Champion of the Track are: the 2nd Place Ribbon, Horseshoes, Stop Watch, Binoculars, blue Jockey #9, red Jockey #7, green Jockey #5, and orange/yellow Jockey #4.
The Wild Symbol is the Jockey. The Jockey acts as a substitute for all other symbols (except the Scatter symbol) in order to help you complete a winning combination.
There are two Scatter Symbols in the Champion of the Track slot game:
• The Race Horse scatter symbol can be scattered anywhere on the 5 reels to complete winning combinations, provided that 2 or more Race Horse scatter symbols appear. Your winnings are calculated by multiplying the Race Horse symbol combination payout (see Regular Payout Schedule) by the total number of coins you’ve bet. If you hit 3 or more Race Horse scatter symbols that are anywhere on the 5 reels, you will trigger the Free Spin Bonus game.
• The Champion’s Trophy scatter symbol, in order to win, it must appear left to right (reels 1-5) in consecutive order and on an active bet line. The Champion’s Trophy symbol does not give you any winnings; however, they allow you to enter the Day at the Races Bonus Feature game.
If in case you get a regular win and a scatter win, you are paid for both of them, because the Race Horse scatter symbol doesn’t have to appear on an enabled pay line for you to win. Scatter rewards are independent from pay line rewards, and so, they are added to the pay line win.
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
