Champion of the Track POKIE
This extraordinary pokie from the industry leader NetEnt combines the fun of a pokie and a horseracing theme manifested in the entire pokie design, especially a racetrack around the reels. The pokie has a unique free spin feature where you win career steps, progress along the racetrack and grab trophies. And if you get three trophies, you step into an impressive bonus game where you will compete against three other horses and receive generous prizes. The maximum prize of $20,000 will be credited to your balance on hitting five jockeys.

Champion of the Track has 5 reels and 30 adjustable paylines. The pokie looks like a stadium or hippodrome as seen from a bird’s eye view, and all of its symbols reflect the horseracing theme, including jockeys in multicolored silks jackets, a horseshoe, a binocular and more. There are three bet options to adjust before a spin: a coin value ($0.01 to $0.50), the number of coins (1 to 4) and the number of paylines (up to 30). Therefore, the minimum and maximum bets are $0.30 and $60 per spin. Some economic players can choose to bet as low as one cent and activate only one single payline, however, this is not an efficient approach. To capture the full benefits of the pokie, you should activate the entire set of paylines. The top three payouts produced by non-feature symbols are $800 (five Stopwatches), $1200 (five Horseshoes) and $2000 (five Badges). To get any non-feature award, three like symbols must land left to right, starting at the first reel.
The racetrack placed around the game field is the key element of the pokie and the focus of most bonus features. It consists of about 20 numbered segments, “Start” field and “Finish” field. There are two golden trophies located on the track on equal distance from one another. When playing or activating some bonus features, you gradually move along the track, earn intermediary Golden Cups and ultimately get to the grand Champion Cup upon crossing the “Finish” mark. You can leave the pokie without your progress losing because your position on the track is saved for 2 days from the last session.
Hitting three or more scatter Horses activates 10 free spins and highlights the training track around the reels. In addition, you are instantly awarded x2 to x100 times the total stake for 2, 3 or 5 scatters that have activated the feature. Free spins run as they normally do in many pokies: the reels spin for a definite number of times at no cost for you. But in Champion of the Track, there is a twist to free spins. Every scatter landing on the reels advances a horse one step on the track, and you have the possibility to advance the maximum of 4 steps on the career track. Another advantage of free spins is that all wins come at double the normal value. If four scatters appeared during the feature but there are still a few unused free spins, all unused spins are converted into coin prizes.
A close-up picture of the jockey is a wild symbol. Along with its ability to substitute for nearly every symbol (except for feature symbols), the wild is the most lucrative element in the pokie since five of them award a hefty x10,000 times a line bet or $20,000 at max. Even four of them give away up to $2000, so you should definitely watch out for jockeys as they pay out very high.
Horse Races feature
Three or more bonus symbols grant you access to a racing theme bonus game played on a new screen. There you are to choose the horse that you think will finish first. You win a coin prize depending on the finishing position of your horse. Besides, you move a couple of steps on the bonus racetrack.
This 5-reel pokie is a far cry from many other five-reel solutions of NetEnt and other vendors. The game has free spins, a one-of-a-kind bonus feature and an enticing racetrack feature that can bring you up to 97,000 coins.
