Graphics and Theme
Final Furlong unsurprisingly is all about a day at the races. The famous South African designer, Microgaming, has done all it can to create an atmosphere for the player, like race day at Aintree or Newmarket. This terrific game’s background is a pleasant green horse track, complete with fences and cheering crowds willing their horse to succeed. The board is a solid wood affair, designed as to imitate the classic betting table you might see at the bookies when attending such an event as Ascot. As is often the form, regular symbols are a collection of letters, whereas special or high-paying symbols are depicted as a handful of racing paraphernalia and horses. The main symbol to look out for is the white horse’s head which indicates the wild. The music is a classic online casino riff supplemented by various horse racing sound effects, such as cheering crowds.
The bonuses for Final Furlong depend on the landing of the scatter and the wild. The wild, as mentioned above, is a white horse. In addition to being the highest paying symbol in the game, the white horse can also replace other symbols to create wins. The wild can do this for all symbols bar the scatter, which in this game is represented by the Golden Cup or trophy symbol. All wins containing at least one white horse will automatically trigger an x2 multiplier to that win, doubling your winnings.
Players will start to hit their straps with the Free Spins round, however. To trigger this bonus, player must land three or more of the scatter symbols on the board simultaneously. They can, however, land anywhere on the reels. Throughout the bonus free spins round, a multiplier of 3x will be applied to all wins. You will be granted 15 free spins at the start of the round. These can be retriggered from within the bonus game, by landing yet more scatters.
