Playtech launches ‘Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends’ Game
Playtech, one of the world’s leading gaming software, systems and services supplier, has launched ‘Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends’ – the first title in its cutting-edge Sporting Legends suite.
This is the first title of three in a spectacular new series of slots racing into Playtech’s gaming portfolio with unique guaranteed jackpots to be won each and every day! Available at Playtech online casinos worldwide (including some of our recommended online casinos for Canadians such as William Hill Casino), ‘Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends’ presents an industry first.
Each title in the suite of games will be linked to a series of three timed Sporting Legends jackpots; daily, weekly and a Mega Jackpot. This amazing new feature presents players with monster cash prizes that must be won by the end of each day and each week, plus a Mega progressive jackpot that offers a potentially life-changing giant pay out.
The Evolution of the ‘Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends’ Game
‘Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends’ is a sequel to the very popular Playtech game ‘Frankie Dettori Magic Sevens’ that has been a favourite for Canadian online players for more than five years, and sees players gallop to glory with a collection of exciting features, including galloping respins with a shifting stacked wild, and a rising win multiplier. It is a 5 reel, 25 payline online video slot including sharply produced graphics and imagery of the legendary Dettori himself.
Have a bet on the horses and back a winner in the very creative free games feature and win a wager multiplier based on where your horse finishes in the Derby!
The slot will be available to players in Playtech Casinos from March 1st, in time for the annual Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival in the UK. The launch of the Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends Slot will be accompanied by several online promotions running through until March 22nd.
Sporting Events Based Gaming
Playtech’s suite of games has been created to celebrate the champions of the global sporting world and will be released to coincide with the big events that the stars grace. Each game will be launched alongside high-profile sports events such as Racing’s Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National and the Soccer World Cup. In an Online Casino industry first, each game in the suite is scheduled to be linked to a series of three different timed Sporting Legends jackpots: a daily, a weekly and a Mega Jackpot.
Each slot also boasts a globally recognised sporting legend and has been designed to offer players greater and increasingly creative ways to win. Following ‘Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends’, the remaining games in the suite will come thick and fast over the succeeding weeks.
The second instalment will be based on snooker great Ronnie O’Sullivan and his participation in the 2018 World Snooker Championship taking place from 21 April to 7 May 2018 at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, in the United Kingdom. Ronnie O’ Sullivan is widely regarded as the greatest snooker player of all time, the ‘Wayne Gretzky’ of the snooker world. During O’Sullivan’s spectacular professional career, he has won five World Championships, seven UK Masters and six UK Championship titles, holding the world number one ranking in snooker for a record period. O’Sullivan is a perfect fit to feature in the second instalment of Playtech’s new release in this exciting new gaming suite concept.
The third game in the series, ‘World Cup Top Trumps’ will be released in time for the mid-June to mid-July 2018 Soccer World Cup in Russia 2018, the latest edition of the world’s largest sporting event that will feature a host of international soccer stars including Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Argentine Lionel Messi and Brazil’s Neymar.
Sporting Legends – When and How to Win
To promote the launch of the first game in the series, and to ensure players are provided with even more ways to win than usual, Playtech will run a three-week long introductory prize draw, with massive cash prizes on offer.
From March 1st to 22nd, players will have the chance to win up to £200,000 (CAD $352 000) from the weekly prize draw in addition to a double jackpot to be conducted during the annual Cheltenham horse racing festival. Headline prizes of £5,000 ($8800) will also be up for grabs in addition to hundreds of smaller cash sums.
