First Past The Post? That was what I was thinking right from the instance I came across the game title. It didn't make much sense to me then. Was it a game about a post office and postmen? Was it about passing some mails around? I couldn't figure it out, until I opened the game, and realised what the title actually meant. It was short for 'the first horse past the finish-line posts'. Hmm, so the game was and is all about horse racing, betting and whatnots. Not my kind of game though, but never mind, just play it for knowing it sake.

First Past The Post doesn't use the paytable in the usual manner, if you need to know. A little twist here and there has been included, probably to give a slight variation to the game play. The Horse is the Wild symbol, a true blue dumb symbol, which doesn't pay anything for itself, doesn't double any wins, doesn't move, doesn't expand, nor become stacked at any time. The only thing it does is to substitute for other symbols, except for the Scatter symbol. This Wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, getting which, the First Past The Post feature game is activated. I'll elaborate on this feature game soon enough. The Golden Trophy is the Scatter symbol, 5 of them paying 100x the total bet, but getting 3 or more of these Scatters do not award any free spins. A Free Spins feature game is non-existent here. Symbols wise, the Lady in red pays 5000x for 5 of her, the Champagne pays 2000x, and all the others pay from 500x down to 100x the line bet for 5 of them. The game symbols pay good, the Wild symbol sucks, and the Scatters pay lowly. An average paytable I would say.

Okay, so you wanna know how the First Past The Post feature game plays. Getting those 3 horses on reels 2, 3 and 4 will take you to a screen showing 3 race horses, each with a coloured saddle, in red, yellow and green, if I'm not mistaken, or maybe blue instead of the red, but it doesn't matter anyway. The race commences and one horse wins the race. Was it the colour that you picked? If yes, then you have won 30 free spins with a 4x multiplier. If your horse came in second, then you win 20 free spins with a 3x multiplier. If the horse you picked lost the race and came in third, or last, you don't win anything, except for 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Got you scared there for a second didn't I? You thought your horse coming in last wouldn't get you any free spins. No, it didn't scare you, not one bit? Hmm, ah well, horse races are never scary anyway. What scares me most is the paytable saying 'can be retriggered' but hardly ever happen.


I've never been a horse better, a horse gambler or a horse punter, but I have played some horse racing games before, both the slot kind and the role-playing kind. For this game, my pick of the horse had mostly came out blardy last! What a blardy luck hah? So all I could play with was just 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier, which paid out low and wished it could be higher. All the while I was hoping I could get a retrigger, but I think I could hear Microgaming's people giggle and snigger. My best win on this game was...oh gees, never mind the figure!

First Past the Post game is powered by microgaming. I actually never played this game until my wife opened it one day and started playing. She doesn’t gamble much so I thought I’ll let her play and enjoy herself. She was playing on the smallest bet which was €0.25 and had no clue on what’s going on. All of a sudden she told me that she won €60 on a single spin. I came up to see and there she had a lady in the hat in front then three wilds and a lady in the back. Its funny the way people who don’t gamble much won crazy things and gamblers could gamble for a month before they get anything great.

Anyways we found out that the wilds are also a feature and that just made it perfect for us. In the feature you have to pick a horse. If your horse comes first in the race you could get 30 free spins with all wins doubled. Unfortunately we came second and were awarded with 20 free spins. In the free spins we won around €25. So as you can see my first experience with this game was really good. Since then I usually play this game with my wife. Because she doesn’t like gambling I don’t play it much but when we do we have good time. On one of our games we won 20 free spins and in the free spins we got the wilds again. That gave 20 more spins with good line hit. So this is another great thing about this game. I would recommend this game for sure. If I was to rate it I would give it 8 out of 10.

P.S. Notice how I went from she was playing, to we were playing after she won:) I truly am a gambler.

There is only a few reasons for me playing this video slot. One, I love making the choice for when the horses are about to race inside the Free spins. Two, scattered trophies are the good symbols returning some of my bets and three, I sometimes like to place bets on horse racing :D even though that's off topic lol.

First Past the post is a horse racing 25 paylines slot that pays well! The 3 different horses on the middle reels (2nd, 3rd, and 4th) are the most important to obtain in this slot because they are the V.I.P's...celebrities if you will that have two major roles! They substitute other symbols and they are the main keys to triggering the horse racing free spins. I just love getting 30 Free spins at 4x if my chosen horse finishes 1st place! I win about $61 for the maximum free spins. It's very entertaining to see all my Free spins play out on my $0.75 triggering bet and a pleasure to find horses roaming around! It's even better if I find my 30 Free spins at 4x retriggering itself but it's rarely coming. If it comes my way then I would have $90+ on estimate. Mostly it's usually 20 Free spins at 3x for 2nd place if I'm not lucky to pick the 1st place horse within my selections. I favour that classic horse racing music harmoniously in an interesting remix too, making free spins pretty cool to watch as I'm winning on them!


First Past the Post might get you off to a very boring start if the Horse racing feature doesn't trigger right away. It's tough but in order to get this all 3 horses must find themselves on 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel so it WILL be difficult to acquire. To tell you the truth I like the free spins coming from Mad Dash because the 4x multiplier doesn't change in the course of my selections. Sure there are fewer free spins but simply the multiplier compensates for that.

Also the Music inside Mad Dash creates this awesome music that makes any player groove into it but heck it's the music in Mad Dash I like more than First Past The Post.
