The biography of a well-known British jockey inspired the developers of Playtech to create the whole series of games in honor of Frankie Dettori. The Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends video slot, released in 2018, is among them. The 5-reel video slot with 25 regulated paylines gives you a chance to win three progressive jackpots at once. There are also other opportunities available: respins in the base game, free spins, and payline multipliers of up to 10000.
Before starting the game, you have to adjust two settings:
The sum of the bet automatically multiplies by the number of directions you’ve chosen. The end value is withdrawn from your account at the beginning of each paid spin. The minimum cost of spin starts at 0.1 credit and can reach 2500 credits. Such a broad range of bets will win popularity for this video slot among high rollers as well as those who prefer to be on the safe side.
A spin starts after you click the button with the circular arrow. There is the turbo mode available in this slot. After activating it by clicking a certain switch in the settings menu, the reels begin to spin at a higher speed. To get prize payouts, you need from 2 to 5 identical symbols on the active line.
The action takes place on the race track in the midst of horse racing. On the reels, you can see icons designed as portraits of Dettori himself, various attributes of horse races, and playing cards. The slot offers two wild symbols. A prestigious trophy is one of them. It replaces any symbol, bar a scatter, in the winning combinations. This symbol forms independent payout sequences bringing the most generous winnings in the game. Two of such icons multiply a line bet by 2, three — by 200, four — by 1000, and the combo of 5 icons will give you the sum with the multiplier of 10000.
Another wild symbol is well recognizable because it takes up three cells vertically. It is represented by a jockey on a galloping horse. It replaces all icons except for a scatter. If this symbol drops, spreads across the whole reel and becomes a part of a winning combination, free respins with an increasing multiplier come into action. They keep on spinning as long as the collected wild symbol remains on the panel or until your first unsuccessful spin. The value of the winning multiplier during the spin can reach x7.
Apart from the trophy, the Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends video slot features another icon that forms winning combinations in the number of two on the active line. It is the close-up portrait of Frankie offering multipliers of 5, 75, 300, and 1500. The portrait of a sportsman riding a horse multiplies your bet line by 50, 200, and 1000 times. Award medals have multipliers of 40, 150, and 800, a safety helmet — of 25, 100, and 400, and a lucky horseshoe — of 25, 100, and 300.
The symbols designed as denominations of card values have the smallest multipliers:
The scatter of the video slot is presented as a stop signal. If 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters drop anywhere on the panel, you get the total sum with multipliers of 1, 5, 20, and 100 respectively.
Upon rolling three or more scatters in any position on the reels, you start a thematic bonus game with free spins. You’ve got to choose one of three quarter horses. A racing track will appear above the panel. Then the free spins start and continue until the chosen horse has reached the finish line. The value of the payout multiplier will depend on the place your choice achieves.
During the free spins, the fifth reel will display only the images of horses. Each of them turns into an additional wild symbol. As a result, when free spins are in process, one of the lines is bound to fill with wild symbols, which increases your chances of making a killing.
The return to player (RTP) figure of the Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends video slot is a bit higher than 93%. Given the feedback from players, the progressive jackpot is the most profitable feature of the slot. It forms due to deductions from other gamblers’ bets in the online casino and is played out in a separate game that can start any time. The developer himself asserts that the bigger sum you bet, the better your chances to play the jackpot game.
