First Past the Post Slot Machine Review

As the name suggest's First Past the Post is an online slot machine with a horse racing theme. It follows the Sure Win slot which has proved to be very popular with players. The game uses Microgaming's 25 line layout and has a free spin bonus with a bit of a twist.

First Past the Post has very wide betting limits with the option to play up to 20 coins per line. This makes for a 500 coin max bet which even at the penny coin size is going to cost $5 per spin. For this reason it is good to know that you can play less than max coins without missing out on any of the games features.

On the middle three reels are three different horse symbols. These horse are all wild and substitute for everything but the scatters. Obviously you cannot get five wilds so the highest line win is for the ladies which pay 5,000 coins for lining up five. At max bet this pays a big 100,000 coins.

The next highest win on the reels is for the scattered trophies which is 100 times you bet for five or 50,000 coins at maximum bet. Next up you have two ways to hit 2,000 coins with either five champagne bottles or four ladies. In total there are 36 unique winning combinations.

In addition to being wild the horse symbols are also the ticket to the free games bonus. Get all three on the screen at the same time and you move on to the first stage of the bonus. You have to click one of the horse symbols to select the horse you think will win the race.

Once selected you move on to an animated race where the three horses run for first, second and third place (View Screenshot). Where your horse places has a direct effect on the free spins. If your horse comes first you win 30 free spins with all wins X4. Finishing second awards 20 free spins with wins X3 and finishing third wins 15 spins with all wins X2.

The feature can be re-triggered but there is a minor twist. If you get the three horses on the screen during the free games you do not have another race. You simply get the original bonus from the first race. This is great if you came first but not so attractive if you came third.

Overall, First Past the Post is probably the best racing theme game we have seen online. The free spin bonus is also one of the best we have seen with up to 30 free games and wins X4 you can win as much as 400,000 in a single spin on the bonus. - Great stuff.
