Appearance and Sound Effects
If you have ever seen an Eyecon slot game you know, they have a certain style, classy but simply is the best way to describe it. Past the Post is another that fits that description. The game is set at a famous racecourse, perhaps Aintree, Cheltenham or even sunny Dubai. In the background, you can see the grandstands and the racecourse. The reels are a bright green colour and as they spin you will hear what undoubtedly horse racing theme inspired sound effects. On the reels themselves, is several theme-related symbols. These include jockeys and horses in varying colours, as well as a bottle of champagne. You also have three people, a man with a hat, a lady with a hat and a man – possibly a commentator – with his set of binoculars.
If you like slot games which are packed full of bonus features, this game might be a little lacking for you. However, what they do have is a special symbol and a fantastically fun little bonus feature. Firstly, you have the special symbol, which is the trophy wild symbol. The trophy is a special symbol as it can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter tote bag symbol.
The bonus feature is a free spins game. To activate the free spins, you must land three, four or five of the tote bag scatter – it won't matter how many symbols trigger the bonus you are taken to the exact same game. Before the free spins start you first must select your horse from the following, White Wizard, Enchanted Prince, Shaman's Dream, Sugar Train and Irish Luck. After that, you will be asked to choose a jockey for the free spins race. The jockeys include Speedy Stevie, Lucky Lenny, Rapid Ronnie, Galloping Gordon and Jumping Jenny. Picking your horse and jockey does not play any part in the free spins game itself but is a fun little addition. The final thing you must select is your race course, which decides your number of free spins and multiplier for the round. You can choose from five options of 20, 15, 10, 8 or 5 free spins each with a varying multiplier from 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x.
