Playtech’s Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven was something of a classic among online slots, owing to is rather nice 7777 coin jackpot potential.
And now, just in time for the Cheltenham Festival in March, he’s back, this time with a new slot – Frankie Dettori’s Sporting Legends.
But will it be a winner, or will it fall at the first hurdle?
This ‘difficult second slot’ is set up in a standard way with five reels and 25 paylines. You can bet anywhere from 0.25 right up to 625.00.
The visuals are quite straightforward – set on a racecourse, with the usual playing card symbols, and a computer drawing of Frankie himself.
The meat of the slot is three progressive jackpots, a free spins round and respins with a shifting wild reel.
The gold trophy acts as the wild symbol, and hitting five of those on a line will yield a 400x win.
The galloping wild is stacked and when it appears on reel one, will trigger the Galloping Wild Respins feature.
As this shifts right across the reels after each respin, the multiplier eventually hits 7x.
The Golden Derby Free Games feature is an innovative little bonus.
It is triggered with three scatters and then you get to pick your horse – a red, green or yellow one.
And just like a true veteran of the turf, you get to see the ‘form’ of the horses – in other words – the results in previous games to help inform your choice.
The horses can yield a multiplier of up to 3x.
The stacked horses become wild symbols and there’s a race to the finish. A winner will give the player a 3x multiplier, second place 2x and 1x for third place.
And if that’s not enough, the game comes with a daily, weekly and mega jackpot, which are given out to players completely randomly.
Verdict and where to play
The depth of features of this slot will keep players coming back, but the graphics and overall feel don’t appear to be a massive jump from the original.
Playtech slots are available at a big range of online casinos but it doesn’t appear to be available just now.
In the meantime, you can try the Magic Seven slot for free below.
