Frankie Dettori's Magic Seven Jackpot Review
Back in 1997, the legendary Italian jockey, Frankie Dettori, amazingly won all seven of his horse races at the Royal Ascot in the UK. He made history and became one of the greatest jockeys in history. Fans of horse racing slots and Dettori can finally replay out his explosive victory and see him in action again.
Developed by Playtech, Frankie Dettori Magic Seven Jackpot plays on 5-reels and 25 paylines. With free spins, bonus rounds and a jackpot of 7,777x your stake, Frankie Dettori Magic Seven Jackpot is one to check out.
Sadly, the visuals don’t match the exciting atmosphere of Dettori’s races. The background is a static and tacky looking set of the races, whilst the reels are basic 2D images. They do animate slightly after winning but that’s about it. Even when you do win, a grey box appears telling you that you’ve won. It doesn’t feel like an event or anything special.
During spins, there is a slight music track building up the reels but that’s about it. There is nothing in between spins and it feels a little empty. It’s disappointing that they have presented the slot this way and the entire aesthetic feels like a slot from the early 00s instead of 2016.
Now, the gameplay is as traditional as you’d expect. You can choose which lines to bet on and how much you want to bet. The main aim is to spin and win up 7,777x your stake by landing 5 of the Dettori wilds. There is a progressive jackpot linked to the Golden 7 and Silver 5 jackpot. Thankfully, the two bonus rounds are a little more engaging without adding too many complicated mechanics.
Both jackpots can be won randomly on any spin of the game with any stake, this incredibly includes non-winning spins! However, it should be noted that if you play with a higher bet then you'll have a better chance of winning something. Like most Playtech slots, the information and payline section is at the bottom left. The spin and autospin button are to the far right with the autospin going up to 99 spins.
Many will be disappointed to find out that the RTP is at 94.13% - which is below the average standard. It’s not the end of the world but it does bring down the slot a lot. It’s a medium volatility slot as well so expect a mixture of less frequent high wins and smaller frequent ones.
The maximum win comes from 5 of the Frankie Dettori wilds and can award players of up to 7,777x their stake. It’s a decent amount and may appeal to certain players but players can win on the progressive jackpot as well. This can appear randomly throughout your playthrough and you can win on either the Gold or Silver jackpot.
Whilst this is a must-play for horse racing fans and sports fans in general, most slot players may not enjoy it. The graphics are incredibly dated and make the slot feel older than it actually is. Traditional slot players may enjoy this, but most modern slot players will not.
The jackpot of 7,777x your stake is a decent amount but the low RTP is off-putting. If you love horse racing slots, then you will adore this slot. It’s definitely one for fans of the sport and Dettori. Make sure to check this out if you loved AP McCoy: Sporting Legends or Ascot: Sporting Legends.
