Maxim Chase Slots

Maxim-ChaseMaxim Chase gives its players a horse racing theme which was created by the guys from IGT. Besides that particular fact, one other thing to keep in mind about this game is that it’s a classic slot machine if you look at its layout, but when it comes to features it does much better than your average such title. Its theme and the horse racing connection are not unusual, and since it’s a bit of a gambling activity it’s been approached by other developers already.

This game is considered a classic, thanks to its 3 reels which host 5 paylines. There are bonus games, scatters and wilds inside, with the biggest prizes offering $9,000.

Features of Maxim Chase

Despite the presence of such a limited number of reels in the game, it still manages to behave like a modern title when the features are concerned. In it, you will discover a wild symbol, a scatter and even a bonus game with some horse racing involved in it.

The Horse Owner would be the wild symbol in Maxim Chase. It’s a pretty typical role that the wild gets here, being the way to form new combinations if it lands in a spot where its presence is needed, but also offering good prizes if it forms combinations of its own. It pays 3,000 coins if this happens, being one of two ways to get this top jackpot in the game. This symbol is not capable of replacing a scatter symbol.

The image of the Jockey was chosen for the only other feature symbol available here. It’s a scatter which will pay you for two or three such symbols that are present anywhere on the reels, even if they’re not on the payline. The reward is worth 200 times the bet value.

Horse Racing Bonus Game

The scatter symbol is also the one to trigger the bonus game of Maxim Chase. You need just two such symbols in order to trigger the feature, and that also gets you the cash prize I mentioned above.


You will be taken to a new screen with a horse race event on it, where you pick the one you think will win. The prize you get depends on the position of the horse at the end of the race.

Betting options and jackpots

You can spend anywhere between $0.10 and $3 on each payline that is activated for a spin. With 5 lines active, the bet would be able to reach a value of $15.

The best prize that the game can muster is going to give you 3,000 coins, which will have the value of the ones you used in your bet. At best, you can expect $9,000 cash.

Design and symbols

It’s a pretty good looking slot machine when you consider that it offers you a limited number of reels, which you will probably associate with a dated look, since that’s what most 3 reel games will give you. It’s not the case here though, the slot managing to look as good as the 5 reels titles that are offered these days. The images are horse racing inspired or they’re numbers which signify the spot in which you finish the race.


Symbols: Horse Owner (wild, 3,000 coins), Jockey (scatter, 200x the bet), Horse (3,000 coins), Saddle (100 coins), Jumping Fence (30 coins), Trainer (25 coins), Betting Card (20 coins), Racing Marker (15 coins), Fence A (15 coins), Fence B (10 coins), Banner 1st place (10 coins), Banner 2nd place (5 coins) and Banner 3rd place (5 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s going to be a good game for someone that enjoys horse racing in real life as well, or for anyone that wants a decent looking 3 reel game.
