Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends is powered by Playtech and has 5 reels and 25 paylines. The follow-up to the popular Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven, it can be played from 25p to £625 per spin across all devices. It offers you respins with a shifting wild reel as well as increasing multiplier as well as a free spins feature where you will get a multiplier up to 3x if you back the winning horse. There’s also 3 progressive jackpots to be won.
Visually, Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends is rather simple and takes place at a racecourse – with cartoon style graphics, symbols on the reels include green A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, lucky horseshoes, Frankie Dettori’s helmet, winner ribbon rosettes and 2 Frankie symbols.
On 1 of them, he’s victorious on a horse whilst the other is just his face – the latter is the most rewarding giving you 60 times your stake for 5 across a payline. The gold trophy is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – 5 of them on a payline will give you a whopping 400 times your total stake.
There is also a galloping wild symbol which is stacked 3 symbols high and shows up only on reel 1 – when it appears fully, you will trigger the Galloping Wild Respins feature. The galloping wild then gallops 1 reel to the right with each respin – the multiplier increases to 2x, 3x, 5x and finally 7x! The feature comes to an end until the galloping wild shifts off reel 5 or you don’t get a winning combination on any of the respins.
The other main attraction is the Golden Derby Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels – 3, 4 or 5 will also give you 5, 20 or 100 times your stake respectively. You then get to pick 1 of the 3 horses (red, yellow or green) to win a multiplier of up to 3x – you will see the recent positions each horse has fared in the last 5 times the feature was triggered to help you.
Once in the feature, the red, yellow and green horse wild symbols appear stacked up to 3 symbols high – they only show up on reel 5. The number of spaces occupied by either horse wild on reel 5 determines how many spaces the horses on the track move forwards – when a horse reaches the finish line, the feature will end. If your horse finishes in 1st position, a 3x multiplier is applied. 2nd and 3rd positions will give you a 2x and 1x multiplier respectively.
Finally, Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends comes with 3 jackpots – you have the Daily Jackpot, Weekly Jackpot and Mega Jackpot. The Daily and Weekly Jackpot tickers are guaranteed to be won within the time remaining whilst the Mega Jackpot will randomly be won – the latter is obviously the largest too. The jackpots can be won randomly like all Playtech jackpots.
Overall, Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends is quite a basic slot – the imagery is decent and the Galloping Wild Respins feature is where I found my biggest wins coming from due to the various multipliers on offer. I found it to be a medium variance title. If you like branded slots, Playtech has better ones with Top Gun and Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice recommended.
