Win, Place, or Show is a horse-racing themed slot game that can be found in online casinos with WGS Technology software. As compared to many online slot games, the game is fairly simple, with no side-games or bonuses to trigger.
It is just you, your bets, and the possibility of winning the jackpot--a prospect that will appeal to many old-fashioned slot enthusiasts, as well as individuals who are not looking for a flashy gaming experience as much as an opportunity to win big. With small bets and big payoffs, Win, Place, or Show stands out among online slot games, providing an exceptional winning opportunity compared to similar games.
Features and Gameplay
Bets in Win, Place, or Show are fixed. You can bet one, two, or three coins on each pull, with a coin valued at $0.50 US. There is only one pay line. All in all, if you are looking for an opportunity to win a reasonably large sum of money without risking all on high bets, Win, Place, or Show is a great online slots game.
At a bet of one or two coins, the payout is five hundred or a thousand coins respectively. The other symbols in the game coincide directly either with the overarching theme of horse racing--a medal, and horseshoe-- or with the symbols traditionally associated with slot games--triple sevens, single bar, double bar, triple bar, and cherries.
The triple sevens provide players' their best chance at a small victory-- two of these symbols in a payline pays out fifteen coins. One symbol in the payline provides a small victory as well, that varies depending on the version of the game that you are playing. It seems to average around five coins.
As the game exists in multiple online casinos, the current value of its jackpot varies depending on where you play. One American-based online casino had a jackpot value around $4,000 and growing as of August 31st, 2015, but the key, as always, is shopping around for the game with the highest jackpot you can find.
The highest paying victory in the game occurs when the slot lands with three trophy symbols in a row. At a maximum bet ($1.50), this would trigger the jackpot victory, which has an average value of $25,710, though the progressive payout has gone as high as $157,388 in 2010.
