AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Playtech – it’s available to play on all devices from 25p to £1,250 per spin. Based on the iconic horse jockey, it comes with a Bonus Wheel where you can win cash prizes or a boost in the Free Games feature. In the latter, you’ll benefit from multipliers/wild multipliers up to 7x. There’s also a Playtech Power Play feature where get you get 5 spins where you ride the accumulator to win big cash prizes. Finally, there’s 3 progressive jackpots up for grabs.
Visually, AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is rather simple with a dark background and reels. With an epic soundtrack and with AP McCoy talking as you spin the reels, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as trophies, racing helmets, race club badges, AP McCoy on a horse and AP McCoy himself.
The latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 4, 10 or 100 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. There are also 3 wild symbols which will replace any symbol bar the scatter. That scatter is the Bonus Wheel – when it appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, you’ll trigger the Bonus Wheel feature.
Here you spin the bonus wheel to win cash prizes or receive a boost for the Free Games feature – each spin of the bonus wheel can give you 5 extra free spins, a +1 boost to your wild multiplier, a +1 boost to your win multiplier or a cash prize up to 1,000 times your stake.
The centre of the wheel then rotates to give you another spin (up to 6 in total) or give you access to the Winning Line Free Games feature where you’ll begin with 10 free spins – the extra free spins and wild/win multipliers are also added before you start the free spins. If you get a win involving a wild, the wild multiplier won is applied – this can reach 7x. Now, if you get a win containing more than 1 wild multiplier, you’ll benefit from the value of both multipliers multiplier together – 7x and 7x would result in a 49x multiplier!
AP McCoy: Sporting Legends also comes with a Playtech Power Play feature – this is activated when you click on the button at the bottom of the reels. You then choose from the Accumulator or Accumulator Plus options:
- Accumulator option – costs 10 times your stake. You get 5 spins with a win accumulator – each win is added to the Prize Pot. All the totals are then added up and that’s what you’ll win.Accumulator Plus option – costs 20 times your stake. You get 5 spins – wilds are than collected (on losing spins) which are then added to the reels for 1 Super Spin at the end.
Finally, AP McCoy: Sporting Legends comes with 3 progressive jackpots – there’s the daily, weekly and Mega Jackpots. The main one is the Sporting Legends Mega Jackpot which can reach high numbers. You can win them randomly on any spin. If you enter the jackpot game, you are guaranteed to win 1 of the 3 jackpots.
AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is a decent slot from Playtech which will appeal if you like the horse racing theme – you can win pretty big in the base game due to the high value symbols but the bigger wins will come in the Winning Line Free Games feature due to the win and wild multipliers which can reach 49x! There’s also the small matter of the 3 progressive jackpots – I recommend you try other slots in Playtech’s Sporting Legends series with Top Trumps Football Stars: Sporting Legends my favourite.
