Playtech’s Ascot: Sporting Legends Slot Review

Gallop from the gate in Ascot: Sporting Legends, a 5 reel, 25 reel horse racing slot. With 3 wilds, 2 of them give you wild reels – there’s also 2x multipliers from the Gold Trophy Cup wild. With more frequent wilds in the High Society Free Games feature where unlimited free spins can be won, any spin could land you 1 of 3 progressive jackpots.

Ascot: Sporting Legends is powered by Playtech and has 5 reels and 25 paylines. This progressive jackpot title can be played from 25p to £250 a spin and has a horse racing theme. With 3 wilds, 2 of them expand to give you wild reels – 1 of them gives a 2x multiplier as well. There’s a free spins feature with more wilds and 3 progressive jackpots.

Set inside the famous Ascot racecourse, this horse racing themed title looks great and has an upbeat soundtrack. Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 card values as well as golden horseshoes, pocket watches, rosette ribbons, a top hat-wearing gentleman and a well-dressed lady – the latter 2 are the most rewarding with 3, 4 or 5 in combination giving you 2, 10 or 30 times your stake.

Ascot: Sporting Legends benefits from 3 different wild symbols – a bronze, silver and gold trophy cup. All 3 of them will reward you with 4, 12 or 40 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. Known as the Ascot Cups feature, each trophy cup wild gives you something different:

  • Bronze Trophy Cup wild – it’s the regular wild and replaces all symbols bar the scatter
  • Silver Trophy Cup wild – replacing all symbols bar the scatter, it will expand to give you a wild reel
  • Gold Trophy Cup wild – as well as replacing all symbols except the scatter, it expands and multiplies all winning combinations on the reels by up to 8x

Ascot: Sporting Legends comes with a High Society Free Games feature – this is played when you get the racing horse scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously. You then pick from the 3 ladies to win 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the feature, more wild symbols appear which can result in wild reels and wild reels that multiply wins. Finally, you can also retrigger the feature indefinitely for unlimited free spins.

Lastly, there’s the Sporting Legends Jackpot feature – on any spin, you can trigger the feature. Once in, you are guaranteed to win the Daily, Weekly or Sporting Legends progressive jackpot. The latter is the biggest and is life-changing.

I quite like Ascot: Sporting Legends – it looks good and I like the 3 wilds throughout. Your biggest wins will come in the High Society Free Games feature due to more wilds being present. If you fill the reels with wilds, you’ll pocket 1,000 times your stake. If you get a screen full of Gold Trophy wilds, you will benefit from a multiplier up to 8x which would give you a 8,000 times stake win.

If you like the horse racing theme, Playtech’s AP McCoy: Sporting Legends would be my pick – there’s also Scudamore’s Super Stakes from NetEnt.
