Furlong Fortunes Sprint
Furlong Fortunes Sprint
Guru game makers Inspired Gaming are behind the Furlong Fortunes Sprint slot. Let´s dust down that pair of jodhpurs, grab the riding crop and tuck a couple of sugar lumps in your pocket. We’re off to the gee-gees.
Now let’s see if you’ve got what it takes: will you leap the fences of fortune and make a mint or fall at the first hurdle? This game is faster than a round of Blitz Blackjack so hold onto your hats!
Back home in Oz, horse racing is something of a national obsession with A$14.3 billion bet in 2010 and 2011 alone! The Melbourne Cup is the race that really gets us Aussies going.
Look and Feel
The reels are set against the edge of a racetrack with grass and fences enclosing the game. While the reels resemble a trophy with golden swirls and fancy decorative flourishes.
There’s no mistaking this game- it´s full of high energy antics and some serious horsey fun trackside. This slot combines brand new graphics with virtual footage that´s as good as a day out at the races. You´d be bumping into the kind of clientele you might find playing our Switch Studios Vegas Strip Blackjack game – everyone dolled up to the nines – if you were at the races for real, but don´t worry – play in your pyjamas if you like.
In the background, you´ll hear some pretty dramatic music that would sound at home in a movie blockbuster.
Get straight out of the gate with 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 pay-lines. That´s not as many as the Anderthals slot but even so, we´d rate this game as low variance.
The game’s logo is the highest payr, followed by a trio of runners and riders in different colours.
The lower value icons are the royals of the card deck in swanky gold-edged lettering.
A silver horseshoe against a plush red background is the game’s Wild which subs for all icons, except the Bonus. A coin featuring a golden stallion rearing up is the game’s Bonus symbol.
These 2 bonus symbols icons only trot onto the middle 3 reels by the way.
If you land 6 of the Bonus icons onto the reels you will trigger the Race Day Bonus feature.
This feature launches the free spins. You´ll get 3 spins and you need to aim to land further coins in thsi mode: if you manage that, then your 3 free games re-start. Where a coin icon lands the icon freezes in place while the other reels re-spin.
Once you’ve covered your screen in lucrative coins, or your 3 lives have been used up, the game kicks up a gear.
You will see “live” race footage and you will get a chance to bet on a selection of horses for a shot at a big win.
You´ll need to back different horses with names as quirky as those you´d find trackside at a physical ride. How about placing a bet on Payday or What’s for Lunch?
Each of the coins carries a handy multiplier amount on them. The multipliers that trigger the bonus feature are added to your choice of horse to boost your potential win. Clever stuff!
Place your bet coins onto your chosen horses and watch the turf fly.
Once you’ve lined up your horses you come to the real race. Your horses are lined up at the starting gate and thanks to high tech gadgetry you´ll be able to watch views of the pre-race and race itself. You´ll feel the tension and adrenaline of a real race as you watch your horses romp home. Hopefully the big winner comes in for you.
Interactive sports slots are hot at the moment and no-one does them better than Inspired Gaming. The Furlong Fortunes Sprint slot really sets a marker: Inspired Gaming will be patting their own backs for this one. This game is cutting edge and compelling.
