The first Saturday in May is fast approaching, and that means only one thing for aficionados of horse racing, gambling and mint juleps – Kentucky Derby time. It’s considered by many to be the biggest, the best and the most traditional of all the derbies, so it seemed only fitting that I’d spend a few hours this week taking a warm-up trot on the online slot machine Derby Dollars.

This game features everything that makes “the most exciting two minutes in sports” so darn exciting, from the amazing horses, to the giant hats, to the chance of winning a whole pile of cash. Like many of our slots, you can choose the right level of action for you, from 1-20 lines, at amounts ranging from 5 cents to $50 per line. So you can win plenty that way, but it’s the bonus round where you can get that feeling of betting on a longshot that winds up winning by a nose. You only need to find 2 or more scattered Coins to hit the bonus round, and it awards up to 25 free spins, with all prizes tripled. Oh, and if you’re lucky you can even win additional free spins during the bonus round. This online slot also has a random, progressive jackpot.

The only parts of the Kentucky experience you won’t get while playing this slot are the sunburn, the julep-hangover and the greasy fingers from eating KFC after the race. Play Derby Dollars now.
