If you have not played a fruit machine pokie before, then Track and Field Mouse is the right place to start. Not only does this classic pokie have an Olympics flavour but is includes a host of features that would make most video pokies look simple.
Track and Field Mouse has the usual classic pokie fruit symbols like cherries, lemon, orange, plum and melon in the base game. The thematic add on is the mouse. You begin by selecting from the Gold, Silver and Bronze payout tables. These are special tables that do not pay out in coins but award free spins instead. Three mouse symbols award 10 free spins in the Bronze payout table, 30 free spins in the Silver payout table and 50 free spins in the Gold payout table. There has to be a compensatory disadvantage in the Gold payout table. Though you win more free spins, the chance of winning them will be lower. The other symbols award fewer free spins. In the base game, Track and Field Mouse has three reels and a single payline. You wager only one coin by default, but can select the denomination from the option available within the range from AU$0.10 to AU$10.00.
Any winning combination in the base game takes you to the Win Spin Video Reels Game. Track and Field Mouse switches to a different format with 3 reels and 5 paylines. The winning combination determines the number of free spins awarded from the chosen payout table. There is a separate payout table that pays out in coins. The Win Spin Video Reels Game is based on the Olympics theme with symbols like medal, Olympic torch, athletics shoes, stopwatch and cheese to provide energy to the mouse. Three Jackpot Logo symbols award the top payout of 500 coins.
After every spin you will be awarded up to four nudges, which are the specialty of fruit machine pokies. The Nudge Gamble is a skill stop feature that allows you to stop the spinning reels when you want. You can use the nudges in the next spin or carry them forward through the Nudge Bank Hold feature. After a losing spin you may be awarded a Shifta feature. One of the reels is kept on hold and the other two reels will spin till you hit a winning combination. Track and Field Mouse is live at all Microgaming powered Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Jackpot City.
