Experience the thrill and nostalgia with this coin-op arcade version of the glorious Goodwood horse race. Win a virtual fortune without the danger of losing real money. An authentic recreation of the classic mechanical horse race betting machines found in arcades and casinos around the world but with added features. Place your bets on any of the eight horses before they start racing. Win up to 200 credits from just one bet or maximum 200,000 if you dare to take a risk, or play safe with the favourites.
Features simulated mechanical horse racing, acceleration, overtaking and wobble just like the arcade machine. This has been designed so it Is random but does follow the odds/chances. It was soak tested for 24 hours and the odds were accurate.
Added features are multiplier bets and a form sheet so you can see the horses performance in past games.
You start off with 100 credits. Just place your bets using the glowing "BET NOW" buttons.
You can only bet while the "BET NOW" sign appears from the top and while you have credits. Once the button lights turn off and the "Bet Now" sign disappears then betting is over and racing begins.
If you lose all your credits, do not worry. Just leave the machine and grab some more free virtual credits from the change machine. You only get 100 credits at a time so the aim is to try to build it up slowly unless you like to take a risk.
You do have the option to purchase more credits but it is not necessary and does not affect the games enjoyment or performance. You will never lose credits!
