Fourteen years back, on September 28, Frankie Dettori achieved the rare feat of winning all seven races on a single day at the Ascot. Now, Playtech had released a five reel and 25 payline video slot game to honor the said achievement of the jockey. The game is named Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens.
As obvious it may be, the reels are set on the backdrop of a racing track, and the game symbols on the reels complement the racing theme. The wild symbol is Dettori, which also offers a fixed jackpot of 7,777. There are two Dettori symbols, one in a racing position, and the other celebrating a win. Trophy, a horse shoe and a finishing post are the other game symbols on the reels.
Further, the Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens Logo symbol is the scatter symbol. It offers scatter payouts as in other slot games. Three or more scatter symbols appearing on the reels trigger the Free Games Race bonus round, wherein the players need to pick one of the three horses in a simulated race. If the horse they back win the race, they’ll pocket 35 free spins. Second place fetches 15 free spins, while last place finish gets one ten free spins. True, bonus games can’t be won during the free spins. But more wild and scatter symbols added to the reels mean one could pocket lots of money if the symbols align in their favor.
The race track bonus symbol appearing simultaneously on the first and fifth reels trigger the Magic Seven bonus round. A race track appears on the second screen, and players have to keep picking spots. Some spots reveal credits which keep getting added, while other spots reveal a trophy. Every such occurrence cause the multiplier to increase by 1, and this applies to all credits. The trophy also activates a video clip showing one of the wins of Frankie Dettori. Players can go on picking spots until a Collect symbol is revealed, wherein their winnings are computed, following which they are taken back to the main game.
Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens also features Playtech’s trademark Gamble game. Players can activate this game if they wish so. In the said game, one card is dealt face up and four cards are dealt face down. One needs to pick one of the face down cards and if it is higher than the face up card, the staked amount is doubled. Else, the player will lose the entire money.
