Appearance and Sound Effects

Eyecon slot games are usually creative and well-designed, but usually are without all the 3D animations and complex graphics, you associate with other slot developers.  Past the Post is another that fits that bill.  The game is well-designed with some lovely imagery.  The slot is set at a race course, nothing to give away which one, so you can imagine it's Aintree or Cheltenham or whatever one you most would love to go to.  In the background, you have the race track and the grandstand of the course.  The reels themselves are green and as you spin recognisable theme related sound effects play. On the reels, you will see an array of symbols which fit the theme.

Bonuses and Special Features

On Past the Post there is a bonus feature and a special symbol.  The special symbol on the game is the wild symbol, which is represented by a trophy symbol on the reels.  The trophy wild is a special symbol as it can help complete winning combinations, as well as multiple combinations, by substituting for symbols when it lands in their place in a combination.  The wild trophy symbol cannot substitute for the scatter tote bag symbol. 

The bonus feature on the game is a free spins bonus game.  To activate the game you must land three, four or five of the tote bag scatter symbol on a single spin.  Once activated you will be taken first to a screen where you will select your horse from one of the following White Wizard, Enchanted Prince, Shaman's Dream, Sugar Train and Irish Luck.  Next up you must select your jockey from the following selection, Speedy Stevie, Lucky Lenny, Rapid Ronnie, Galloping Gordon and Jumping Jenny. This part of the bonus feature is purely for show and doesn't really contribute to the free spins at all, more for fun.  However, next, you must select your free spins and multiplier from a minimum of 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier to a maximum of 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier.

During the free spins, you can re-trigger the bonus spins by landing a further three or more of the scatters.
