Playing games and sporting of course are closely related to each other and that’s why Net Entertainment Productions has developed various casino games with a sport as the game’s theme. In four parts we’ll discuss them all starting today with the equestrian sports that traditionally already have a lot to do with betting and with, of course, a leading role for one of the most useful animals in the world.
Mankind probably wouldn’t have developed into what it is today without the help in many ways from horses that were domesticated around 6.000 years ago. Because before the invention of the steam, gasoline and electrical motor humans were heavily depending on the strength, speed and general usefulness of horses in agriculture, the hunt, warfare and of course as means of transportation. Now we have replaced the horse with mechanical driven inventions the horse as a usage animal is, so to speak, “retired” and can they do what they do best, i.e. running.
And running they also do in the exciting Netent casino game Golden Derby in which the punter can bet on 8 different horses and their jockeys on the Netent horseracing track. The game is beautifully and very realistic designed in 3D which gives you the impression of really being on Ascot watching the race, even reinforced by the horse track noises and a commentator reporting about the race.
The theoretic pay out of Golden Derby is 93,1% and there’s a progressive jackpot to be won when you correctly have predicted the order all 8 horses have finished. If you have predicted the correct order of 6 finishing horses you’ll get 10% of the jackpot.
Another Netent game dedicated to horse racing is video slot Champion of the Track and on its reels you’ll see everything that has to do with racing horses and watching it like jockeys, the trophy to win, binoculars to watch the race, a chronometer and of course horses. It also has an exciting bonus game in which 4 horses race each other and when the horse you have chosen wins you’ll get “career steps” and corresponding random prizes which are depicted in the slot’s horse track racing board game. So it’s a video slot game about a race and with a board game feature.
If you like horses (or just like the Netent casino games) you should check out the Golden Derby game and video slot Champion of the Track on their respective pages in our casino guide. To play the games for real money you can park your stallion at the CasinoLuck casino that offers both games.
