Lace-up for the craziest marathon in history with St Louis 1904

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Players are being invited to take part in the most unusual race in history in St. Louis 1904, the latest slot release from Blue Guru Games.

The game is based on the 1904 St. Louis Marathon and the extraordinary stories of chaos, unexpected challenges and peculiar occurrences that unfolded during the race.

Just some of the crazy happenings include:

  • One runner swallowing so much dust he had a stomach haemorrhage
  • One runner succumbing to hunger and eating rotten apples forcing him to collapse
  • One runner being chased a mile off course by a pack of dogs
  • One runner showing up in trousers, a shirt and dress shoes
  • The first athlete to cross the line was later found to have ridden in a car for 11 miles

The team at Blue Guru has paid homage to this unpredictability and insanity in St. Louis 1904 which is packed with bonus features that will keep players pounding the dusty tracks of Missouri in search of victory and potentially big wins.

This includes Instant Money Medal Symbols and a Progressive Multiplier Free Games Bonus. Free Spins are triggered when three or more Scatter symbols land on the reels – in the base game, if two Scatters land a second chance feature can trigger.

Before the Free Games play out, up to five Reel Modifiers can be selected. This includes more Money Medal symbols, more Wild Collector symbols, More Cars, Rotten Apples and Pack of Dogs, an Instant Multiplier and additional Free Spins.

The Wild Collector symbol then collects all the values from the Money Medal symbols and then all the Wild Collector symbols are collected and added to the Progressive Free Spins Meter. Every fourth Wild Collector retriggers the feature with more Free Games and a higher Multiplier in play.

For those who want to follow the approach of Fred Lorz, the runner who hopped into a car for half the race, there is the option to Buy the Bonus.

Kristian Hassall, Commercial Manager at Blue Guru Games, said: “St. Louis 1904 puts players at the centre of the craziest marathon to have ever been run. As the reels spin and the dust flies into the hot Missouri air, they must avoid the pitfalls the runners experienced back in the day to cross the line first.

“To give them a taste of just how unpredictable the race was, we have packed in plenty of bonus features that caused chaos but still deliver plenty of big win potential. So, lace up and see if you have what it takes to claim victor in St. Louis 1904.”
