Inspired Entertainment announced Monday the launch of its new horse-racing-themed slot game, Big Horsey Fortune. Now available online and in retail, the game is a 5×3 grid, 10-win-line slot that features a punter, wild symbols, and a Big Collector Bonus that awards unlimited Free Spins until the Big Winner prize is awarded.
Players will need to “saddle up” and land 3 or more bonus symbols to trigger the Big Collector Bonus. During the bonus, unlimited Free Spins take the reins until the Big Winner value is awarded, which is determined in the Match 3 game.
In the Match 3 game, players will be presented with 6, 9, or 12 identical tiles, depending on the number of bonus symbols used to trigger the bonus. Players must Match 3 symbols to uncover a Big Winner Value, which can be up to 100x the stake.
“Race around the reels and watch out for the punter symbol and any horses landing in view during the Big Collector Bonus. The values shown on the horses will be paid- and if more than one punter appears, each horse is awarded again for every extra punter in view – the feature will only end when you rein in your Big Winner,” the company explained.
Released ahead of the annual Cheltenham festival, one of the major horse racing events of the year in the UK, Big Horsey Fortune “captures the excitement and anticipation ahead of the festival starting this week,” according to Inspired.
Richard Terry, UK Product Director, said: “We are pleased to release Big Horsey Fortune to our LBO & B3 customers. Big Horsey Fortune is the latest addition to Inspired’s stable of ‘BIG’ games, and this arrives in time for the highlight of the horse racing calendar as Cheltenham gets underway.
“This complements Inspired’s strategy of releasing engaging games for key seasonal events throughout the year,” he concluded.
Earlier this week, the company announced the launch of its first minesweeper game, Lucky Fish Finder, now available online and on mobile. Played on a 5×5 grid, it is the first among Inspired’s upcoming Finder series.
