Comment: The gamblers almanac of Book games.
What a fabulously different take on a classic Book game, the Bookie of Odds is a proper gamblers game with a brilliant yet costly “Respin” option. Unless of course, you win that is, in which case it’s just brilliant.
It’s all about the horse race and the background soundtrack adds to the feel of this game. It’s like no other Book game in as much as there is real participation and a little calculation needed if you are to make this game “profitable”. Essentially, the repins part is another form of the gamble feature, which pans out about as much as a traditional Book of… gamble feature.
The Bookie of Odds is not a game that many will choose over a classic Book game, but for those that do, this is a book that you will keep coming back to. A real Bookies almanac game with odds and real betting.
There is no safer gambling element to this game. The rest is a good old-fashioned manual click option. Which is good for me. What better way to control your game than a little willpower and an urge to play something else.
Microgaming is about as big as it gets in the world of iGaming and Gambling. There isn’t much they can’t do or haven’t done and perfected. Just about everything that they do or are involved in becomes an instant hit. It shows too, just look at the Bookie of Odds. A seriously clever take on a classic game and it works.
The Bookie of Odds is built around the classic scatter symbols that you’d normally get with any Book of… slot. Bag a minimum of three scatter symbols to trigger your 10 Free spins Bonus round.
The jackpots and wins on this game are good, especially if you bag the scatter symbols, which is when this game really pops. The pots are good and the added gamble option is better. Animation leaves a lot to be desired.
There is no gamble feature per se, other than the very clever “repin” options at the footer of every reel. This is the part where you need to work out your odds or chances are bettering your win. Not an easy thing to get used to, as luck plays a massive role in what happens next.
There is a “go faster” button, but that just eats away at your funds and takes all the enjoyment out of the game.
