I would say that A Day at the Derby is a classic Rival slot game. This game has 20 pay-lines and 3 reels. Like many older Rival games this one too comes with two features: the classic bonus round and the free spins feature. The graphics are really good for an older game and here you have some excellent animations. The sound that can be heard in the background while you play is very realistic.

The theme is related to the sport or precisely for Horse Racing. So far I have had the opportunity to play a few games with a similar theme and that, from several software providers and I can say that from all of them, A Day at the Derby is maybe the best. The bonus round can be reached in the standard way with 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere on the screen. The bonus game here, really reminds me of the bonus game which you have in the Playtech game called Frankie Dettori's Magic Seven. Here too, as with Frankie Dettori's Magic Seven, you click on one of the 3 offered horses and then the race begins. In the Rival were so imaginative that each race ends with photo finishes. The cash prizes here depends on that which place the horse that you selected has won, and in the worst case it is 10 x bet. When it comes to the free spins here, depending on the number of the scatter symbols you can win 5, 10 or 25 free spins as much as you get for 5 scatter symbols. As in some other Rival games the best combination is when during the free spins you come to the bonus feature once or several times. Probably this is the only way to get to wins bigger than 100 x bet.

Once upon a time, this was a game where I spent a lot of time. Today, I play it rarely because of a simple reason that I rarely play in casinos that are offering Rival games. A Day at the Derby has 7 out of 10 possible stars from me.

Most of Rival casinos simply do not have the country I belong to on the list of allowed countries at registration. Very rarely I have the opportunity to play a slot on this platform and “Golden Cherry” casino is one of the few that is offering me this possibility. A few years ago, with a bonus offered by this casino, I had the opportunity to play about 400 spins at “A Day at the Derby” and by chance today I remembered this slot and I played here again about 300 spins on virtual money.

It is true that in general Rival slots are generally of weak quality (at least in my opinion) and the slot “A Day at the Derby” is a good example of how NOT to be for a slot. Maybe it is true that slot does not eat the money too quickly, but 60-70 % of the total wins here are obtained only in the Bonus game! I mean why to play the slot itself and not instead the very simple Bonus game, when almost all the spins have a payout more than ridiculous. At a total minimum bet of 20 cents/20 paylines, the biggest payout I ever had for 3 same symbols was 30 cents. And I had this payout very rarely. It is true, I won twice around 1.5 Euro but in 95 % of the cases the wins were of 3-10 cents once every 3-4 spins! As I said, for 20 Euros gambled in 100 spins the loss was over 9-10 Euro.

And the only source of good wins is the Bonus game, and this if you are lucky enough to bet on the winning horse, from 3 horses. So that if the horse wins the virtual race you will get 10 Euro that will offset all previous looses (but if it comes on the last place you will have 2 Euro and on the overall you will lose money). The Wild symbol (“Brown Horse”) and the Scatters triggering the Free Spins (3 “Blue Jockey”) are here very, very rare. In 300 spins I never got a round of Free spins.

I got very bored playing here and I had not had any real satisfaction. I am sorry, but as I said this IS NOT how a true slot should be.

Hello , i will write my review about Video Slot from Rival gaming casinos named A Day at the Derby.

I tried this slot with some no deposit bonus i get, I usually with those bonuses try new games , this time it was this Video slot. As usually i started playing with 1$ per spin as this slot is 20 lines and i don't like to play with lower bet than that. My balance from bonus was 25$ and my first 7-8 spins were nothing , i didn't get even those little wins.

Soon after that from nothing i got into a bonus round. In this bonus round you have to choose from three horses in a race , my first pick was horse with number 7, this horse was damn slow lol :) so i just won 10$ as he finished third . Two spins after that i got another into the bonus and my next pick was also slow and third on a race so i gain another 10$ and now i was on 35$ . I continued playing with 1$ and manage to play pretty long time not raising or dropping my balance from 30$ until i got again into the bonus round and this time i picked the right one and got 50$ . So as I always do after i decent win i usually raise my bet this time I raised it to 1.40$, after that as a lot times before I started loosing , so until i lost everything i did manage to get into another
bonus round and this time i finished second and got 35$ , i did not manage to get into free spins feature so i don't have experience with it :)

For me this slot is really worth trying as in this relatively short time i played it i managed to get a lot of times into a bonus round , all i needed was a little luck :)

When I played on the rival gaming casinos I have some good experience from their video slots. I never thought I will won any on those games but sometimes the luck was with me and I wagered some money on them. The day at the derby is my absolute favorite from the video slots.

This game mostly took my money but when it was a good mood I get many nice bonus rounds and winnings on it. It has 20 line so the minimum bet is 0.2 euro but I mostly played on higher limits because on the minimum stake it gives only cents. I started here with a 28 euro bonus money with relatively high bonus wagering requirements so my starting bet was 1 euro. The spins ended fast but almost the last spins I get the free spin feature, when I triggered the 3 horse rider symbols I started the free rounds. It was very small amount of free rounds because it gives only five free spins for 3 scatter symbol. If you collect more than 3 you will get more free spins. I think that feature is only a decoration because I never get a higher amount from it even I played more than 2 euro each spin.

The most valuable feature here is the bonus game. When I triggered the 3 tan horse I started my bonus game. I was allowed to choose between from 3 horses, I always pick the Hungarian horse because it was named from my country. Sometimes it brought my luck. When I picked a horse the race was started, you have to win the race to get the biggest prize but many times it was very hard. I get that bonus rounds a few times in my game play and I collected some money but I never had a serious winnings on this slot but the horse race is compensate the base game low pay outs.
