It’s time to head to the Derby in the Sure Win mobile slot. But will the betting tips you get here help you win this game?
Originally created exclusively for one of the largest online bookmakers in the UK, this is now available at multiple Microgaming casinos and now on mobile phones and tablets to boot.
Why? Because it’s one of those games, much like Playtech Frankie Dettori’s slot, that has built a bit of a following for itself in that small niche of sports betters who love to play slots.
They exists, and don’t you doubt it.
The point is, this is a theme that horse racing fans will love. You’ve got your binoculars, your selection of horses, the golden cup… even the tipster scatter winking at you as it tells you to bet on one of these ‘sure win’ horses.
Granted, it’s not very pretty, or particularly glorious for non-horse racing fans, but it works and plays well, and has a couple of aces up it’s hoofs.
Most punters come to this 15 paylines 5 reeler for the free spins. They see that Microgaming gives them a choice of three options, from a large 24 free spins with a 22 multiplier to far riskier 12 free spins with a 4x multiplier.
Well, if you want to take any tips for our Sure Win slot review, take this: we really like the middle of the road option of 16 free spins with a 3x multiplier. That, for us, is the sure win horse. It’s where we’ve gotten the luckiest (100x our bet upward), though of course, we’ve hit lows too.
Generally however, this is a slot machine, not a race track. So the laws of the spin are that you’ll get what the machines random number generator decides you get, and you can expect about 30x to 40x your bet on most of them on a bad round.
Basically, free spins nicely done.
We don’t care if we are mixing our animal references. And you won’t too when you hit the wild symbol during the free spin games.
During the base game, these are the only symbol giving you decent wins, namely because the wild comes with a 3x multiplier, and if you get a win without it, you’ll barely get your bet back.
The wild is your only companion in the base game worth chasing, and in the free spins, that multiplier can give you some truly glorious wins as they are added up with the free spin multiplier.
For us, we will probably visit the Sure Win video slot game as we would the real races; once or twice a year, for the fun of it.
Fans of this machine, or horse betting, should add an extra star and get playing straight away.

Wilds: The Sure Win slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols except scatter. It also comes with a healthy x3 multiplier that steals the show most of the time.
Scatter & Free Spins: Get 3 or more scatters (the tipster winking and smiling at you... nothing ominous here...) and you'll trigger the free spins.
Here you get to choose one of three options, namely:
Sure Win mobile slot is a fun, well balanced mid-variance slot, but the theme will probably keep us away most of the time.
Still, we have no doubt that the call of the Derby races (and maximum win of 1120x our bet) will come to us, from time to time, as we chase the wild and the big multipliers in the free spin rounds.
