The leading online casino game developer Playtech has been hard at work in recent months and there are some new and exciting games being released. They include video and classic slots built on all kinds of themes with something to suit every taste. Best of all, all the slots featured below are linked to huge progressive jackpots.
Frankie Dettori: Sporting Legends – Three Progressive Jackpots
For a number of years the slot Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven has been hugely popular at Winner Casino and now Playtech have decided to release a sequel to the popular game. One again they have brought the popular jockey to the reels in a game packed with bonus features and linked to a number of progressive jackpots.
Frankie Dettori: Sporting Legends is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and up to 25 paylines. The reels are set against a view of a racetrack with horses running around it. There are five high value symbols, two featuring Frankie himself, a horseshoe, a helmet and prize ribbons. The lower value symbols are the playing cards 10 through to A.
The wild symbol is a golden trophy and it can substitute for all the other symbols, except the scatter symbol, to help and form winning combinations. The scatter symbol is a racing finishing post.
In addition to the regular wild there is also a special Galloping Wild symbol that can land stacked on the reels. If the Galloping Wild covers the whole of the first reel you will receive a free respin. If this respin produces a win then the wild will move one reel to the right and the slots will respin again. This process continues until either you fail to land a win or the wild disappears off the end of the reels.
If you land three scatters anywhere on the reels you trigger the Golden Derby Free Games. First you need to pick one of three horses competing in a race. A race takes place above the reels during your free spins. The fifth reel is filled with red, yellow and green horse wilds and each time one lands that horse moves a bit closer to the finish line on the racetrack. The free spins continue until a horse wins the race. If your horse wins then you receive a 3x multiplier and if it comes second you receive a 2x multiplier.
The slot is also linked to three progressive jackpots, the Sporting Legends Jackpot, the Daily Jackpot and the Weekly Jackpot. Any spin of the reels can trigger the jackpot game, including a losing spin. Once the jackpot game begins you are guaranteed to win one of the jackpots. As their names suggest, the Daily Jackpot must be won each day and the Weekly Jackpot must be won each week. The Sporting Legends Jackpot is the biggest and it can be won at any time.
Frankie Dettori: Sporting Legends has a betting range of £0.01 up to £625 per spin so you will be able to enjoy it on any sized budget. There is a huge top payout of 10,000x available for landing five wilds along the reels. The symbol featuring Frankie in blue can payout up to 1,500x, Frankie on a horse can payout up to 1,000x, the prize ribbons can payout up to 800x, the helmet can payout up to 400x and the horseshoe can payout up to 300x.
If you enjoyed the old Frankie Dettori slot then you are sure to love this fantastic new release and with a bit of luck, you’ll hit the Sporting Legends Jackpot.
