Sure Win Pokie

It's perhaps surprising that there are not more Poker machines dedicated to the King of Sports, but maybe Sure Win, from Microgaming, will go some way towards redressing the balance. It's certainly got enough features. like free spins, wild multipliers and a gamble round to keep punters playing, but whether they are backing a winner or not remains to be seen. So we are under orders to start looking at how this game works, and see if it really is a sure bet, or if it will fall at the first fence.

How It All Works

And we're off, with 5 reels and 25 paylines, with the option for novice stakes of just 0.01 on a spin, (although players won't get may wins that way), or weigh in with all lines and maximum bet with a total wager of 250.00. (Stop me if the horse racing analogies are getting too much.)

Clear and crisp graphics make this easy on the eye with everything presented in cartoon style, although the animations are nice and smooth, with some sound effects that are in keeping with the horsey theme including a tipster trying to get your attention and the background sounds of the crowd.

All of the symbols consist of things that can be found in and around the racecourse, and thankfully there's no sign of the 'high card' icons that always seem to be a bit lame to me. So there's a Jockey Cap, Binoculars, Bet Slip, a couple of Horses and a Trophy, each of which is worth different amounts when at least three land on a line, starting from the left hand reel.

Of course any pokie that lacked bonus rounds would be a bit of a non-runner, so Sure Win has them in abundance, starting with a Wild symbol that is simply the game logo, but works in the usual way by replacing others if it will help to make up a winning line of symbols. Just to make things a bit more interesting, it also triples the base value of any line that it completes, while also having the potential to reward anyone lucky enough to get a full line of five Wilds with a prize of 7000 coins.

The only symbol that it doesn't substitute for is the Tipster Scatter, who not only pays out a win anytime two or more land anywhere on the reels, but also becomes the players' favourite when it kicks off a free spins round.

Three scatters launch 12 free spins, with any prizes being quadrupled in value, while Four scatters are the signal for 16 spins to start, with a 3x multiplier in place, and if five scatters started the round, then players get treated to 24 spins, during which all wins will be doubled. This seems a little odd, as the number of free spins and multiplier amounts don't give players much of an advantage, no matter how many scatters were there to start the round, but I don't make the rules, and it's pretty generous anyway.

A quick Gamble round can be played after every win, where the aim is to correctly guess the correct colour or suit of a face-down playing card. Getting the right colour doubles the amount just won, while the right suit quadruples it, but don't be blinkered by these games, as trying to multiply the prize over and over is pretty risky. It's good advice to only gamble small wins where it doesn't matter so much if the guess proves to be wrong.

A Dead Cert, Or Should It Be Put Down?

Like any game from the Microgaming stable, Sure Win is independently certified as being completely fair, so whether it's your to your taste or not ,at least it will on average, pay out the declared amount.

The graphics may not be state of the art, but it's no worse for it, and the simple pleasures of this pokie shouldn't be overlooked, especially when the Wild pays out its big wins, and the free spins begin. It's a photo-finish between these bonuses, and whichever are first out of the gate, players are sure to get some decent prizes.
