Table games, slots and video poker are the most popular online gambling products. The Other Games section usually only has scratch-cards and keno. Playtech is not following this trend – under Pergola Games there are Sports & Virtual Games, and among them there is Derby Day.
The game is all about horse racing. In fact it can be a good preparation if you want to bet on actual horse races. Interesting audiovisual features in Derby Day resemble the real event. When you click on the horse you can see its era, sex, rating and statistics. You can also read about the jockey. It doesn’t affect the outcome of the game, but it makes it more realistic.
When the stakes get confirmed, the race starts and it’s actually displayed on the screen as an exciting video, including audio effects of the crowd. After it’s over, there results are displayed.
The player can put ante on the following gambles: Winner (the first place), Exacta (the first and the second place), Place (the first or the second place), Show (any place in the top 3), and Pick IV-V (four or five places in order). A player can put multiple bets on Winner, Place and Show, and the odds are known from the beginning. On Exacta and Pick IV-V only one bet can be made, and the odds are known after assortment.
Casino Del Rio, Omni Casino, Casino Tropez and other Playtech casinos offer Derby Day.
