Betting on horse races is a popular activity at online gambling sites. Therefore all the leading software providers offer at least one horse racing themed slot game at the online casinos powered by them. These slot games draw a lot of traffic during the occasion of popular races like the Epsom Derby and the Grand National.

The software provider Realtime Gaming (RTG) offers a horse racing themed slot titled Derby Dollars. It is an old fashioned simple slot game without too many features. The horse racing aspect is created by excellent graphics. The reels are set in the background of a race course and the symbols are related to horse racing. These include Binoculars, Coin, Trophy, Horse, Jockey and Lady. Race days are an occasion for elegant dressing and the lady in the symbol epitomizes that. The Horse is the wild symbol and offers a jackpot payout of 3,333 coins. The Coin is the scatter symbol and triggers the free spins. Derby Dollars slot game departs from the norm and awards free spins for even two scatter symbols. This slot game can be played at RTG online casinos like Cherry Red and Club World.

Microgaming offers two horse racing themed slot games at its online casinos. Sure Win and First Past the Post are both common horse racing terms. In First Past the Post the symbols include Betting Ticket, Champagne, Horses, Tote Board, Trophy and the customary Lady. Background audio of the crowd noise helps create the racing atmosphere. There are three different horses as wild symbols and they figure in the bonus game. When the free spins feature is triggered the player has to select one of the horses. The number of free spins and the multiplier awarded depends on the horse's position in the race. The Microgaming horse themed slot games can be played at online casinos like All Slots and Platinum Play.

Derby is among the most popular of the horse races and the software provider Rival Gaming offers a slot game titled A Day at the Derby. This slot game has an interesting feature. When the reels spin the background of the symbols become transparent revealing a beautiful race course. The symbols are typical of the horse racing theme and include Trophy, Man and Lady Race-Goers, Horse Shoes, Cold Drink, Binoculars, Betting Slip, Jockeys and Horses. However, as in all Rival Gaming slot games, animations play an important role in creating the atmosphere. The male race-goer wipes sweat from his face and the betting slip turns into a wad of cash. A Day at the Derby simulates a horse race in the bonus game and can be played at Rival Gaming online casinos like Sloto' Cash and Ruby Royal.

The Playtech horse racing themed slot game, Frankie Dettori's Magic Sevens, is a special one because it is based on a historic event. Dettori won all the seven races at Ascot way back in 1996 and this slot game pays tribute to that achievement. There are plenty of Frankie Dettori symbols on the reels. The jackpot payout is 7,777 coins to correspond to the Magic Sevens theme. The highlight of this slot game is the bonus round in which players can see the video clips of all seven historic wins of Dettori. This slot game can be played at all Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez and Casino Del Rio.
