Night has fallen; on the city streets, the stakes have been selected. The drivers start their engines and prepare to race to the finish line. This is one of 150 titles produced by the developers at German gaming company Merkur. No newcomer to the world of gaming, with over 50 years’ experience, Merkur has produced a simple but deadly-effective game in Race to Win.
The backdrop for the game is dominated by modernistic skyscrapers that conjure up images of fast-paced racing games, with all the symbols and views on the main screen mirroring this. The three reels set across three rows sit upon a tyre tread background. The symbols are all things racing and include the chequered flag, bucket seats, motorbikes and cars, helmets and tyres, and a rather attractive young lady who presumably starts the race. The playing cards ten, jack, queen, king and ace also feature.
There are no wilds or scatter symbols in this game; however, spinning two or three chequered flag symbols on one line will generate a mystery prize. The game creator’s usual extras are also present. There are 27 paylines in total and the expected return to player is more than 96 per cent.
While Merkur's Race to Win may be called simplistic in its design and performance, except for the extras below, the theme of this game is interesting and will certainly appeal to a proportion of the market. Its appearance is sleek and visually pleasing, and it represents a video slot game in its most pure form for those who simply want to get down to business.
On achieving winning lines, you are presented with three options displayed in the bottom middle of the screen. The options are to collect your winnings, take the card gamble, or take the ladder gamble. Opting to collect will simply add your winnings for the paylines to your total and allow you to spin again.
Choosing to take the card gamble presents you with a view of a pack of cards, with one face up. You simply indicate whether you predict the next card to be black or red. This step can be repeated if you are successful until a maximum of 140, or the currency equivalent, is reached. If you select the ladder gamble, you are presented with a ladder indicating multiples of currency doubling at each step.
Again, you may continue to press the gamble button to climb the ladder and achieve greater rewards to a maximum of 140. During this additional gameplay, you are presented with the options to collect winnings at any point or to collect half. If you choose the latter, half your winnings will be banked before you continue.
Race to Win is available on all platforms, like the other free slots on our site. You can play it on your desktop computer in the comfort of your own home, or take it with you on your mobile and tablet for gameplay on the move - but not while you are driving or racing!
