Horse Racing Slot Frankie Dettoris Magic 7
To the horse racing fans out there the man in this slot’s title needs no introduction, as he has cemented his place in the jockey hall of fame for good. To those unfamiliar with the jockey Frankie Dettoris Magic 7 slot from Playtech is based on, he is best known for the very claim to fame in the title, his magic 7. This relates back to the year 1996, when Frankie won all 7 races during Champions Day at Ascot in the U.K. This is an unbelievable feat, and one developer Playtech seemed to believe should be immortalised on the reels.
As far as the slot itself is concerned, the graphics and overall presentation has been found to be rather lacking, with the appearance of the game coming off a little cramped. There is also not that much to write home about the backdrop of sound effects as these ultimately struggle to convey the surrealism of the moment.
That being said there are some unique symbols on the reels which is fairly innovative and, best of all in terms of theme support, there is a bonus game that centres around horse racing and in which players can actually get to view Frankie’s Magic 7 races. There is also a rather fun free spins feature that is also wholeheartedly horse racing related, so whilst the presentation may not be what players have come to expect from Playtech slots, the theme has been almost religiously adhered to and so even almost fans of the sport will find something to enjoy with this slot.
Gameplay with Frankie Dettoris Magic 7 Slot
The theme itself is fairly rigorous in Frankie Dettoris Magic 7 slot, but what players can expect regarding the gameplay is actually quite refreshing. The symbols of this slot are mostly horse racing related content, with the likes of horseshoes, trophies and Frankie in various different victorious looking poses. To supplement these more thematic symbols are the standard playing cards that assume the role of lower paying symbols.
There are 25 pay lines and 5 reels overall, with columns of 3 rows. Add to this a decent selection of betting possibilities and the stage is set for most players to have a go. With a medium volatility this slot has a reliable, if not generous, return to players too. One additional cool feature in this regard is the gamble option, where players can stake their wins from a spin on a double or nothing wager over the outcome of a playing card.
