Playing Derb Dash is fairly simple. Along with the balance left and the current bet level, the primary game controls are located at the bottom of the screen. To change the bet, use the left and right arrows in the bottom right corner. You can view the paytable and game regulations, which are updated in accordance with your wager, by clicking the + sign in the top right corner. In the autoplay menu, select from a variety of win and loss caps, or press the big spin button to spin once and manage your spending manually. This wager ranges widely, from 20 credits at the lowest end to 20,000 credits at the highest. The scatter wild, which can show up with up to 2500 credits on reel 1 if you're fortunate enough to find it, offers the biggest payout on the paytable.
There are two types of wilds, one of which also serves as a scatter. To add more winning lines, the basic wild symbol can be used in place of all other symbols but the bonus. Like a scatter symbol, the scatter wild will pay out independently wherever it lands. It can also join forces with other wilds to form winning combinations.
During the standard game, a horse may appear and race across a row at random, adding a multiplier of between x2 and x10 to any wins generated by the symbols on that row.
Any reel may move up to 5 spaces at random to complete a winning combination. This can make the base game more engaging and should be avoided.
Your key to getting free spins is finding the extra trophy symbols. If you get 3, you'll get 10, and if you get 4, you'll get 25 free spins. These have a distinct set of reels and can't be retriggered, but they otherwise work the same as the base game.
