Second place is the first loser!
This game is a 5 reel game with 25 paylines and you can bet up to 20 coins on each of the paylines.
The ‘Horse’ symbol is Wild and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
There is only one bonus feature when playing First Past the Post and it is activated when you receive the Horse Wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. When this happens you will be asked to select one of the 3 Horse Wild symbols. A race will then be run and the closer to 1st place your horse finishes the better you prize. If you finish first you receive 30 complimentary spins with all wins quadrupled. If you finish 2nd you win 20 complimentary spins with all wins tripled. If you finish 3rd you win 15 complimentary spins with all wins doubled.
First Past the Post does offer a somewhat interesting free spin feature, though that interest is really only the gimmick of the race which doesn’t impact what the game actually does, but at 5% House Edge it’s an expensive way to get your free spin fix.
