British iGaming expert Playtech has officially launched the first game in its Sporting Legends slot collection, according to gaming media outlets. The slots suite is set to feature guaranteed cash jackpots that can be won daily, as well as a variety of appealing sports-related themes and imageries. Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends is a sequel to one of Playtech’s most popular slots to date; Frankie Dettori Magic Sevens. The original slot allows players to play to glory while they enjoy a slew of bonus features, including shifting stacked wilds, ‘galloping’ re-spins, and a unique multiplier that grows in value as they play. Every game in the new slots suite will be linked to a number of three-tiered Sporting Legends progressive jackpots. These are the Daily, Weekly, and Mega Jackpots, each of which will present players with timers that count down to different deadlines for the prize pools on offer.
Commenting on the launch of the new slot, Playtech CPO Shimon Akad has noted that his company is thrilled to be launching the first slot game in its Sporting Legends game suite. The executive noted that Playtech is confident that the new game will be popular among its players and licensees, especially considering the warm reception of Frankie Dettori Magic Sevens when it hit the market. According to Akad, the game boasts a ‘beloved sportsman’ alongside Playtech’s industry-first jackpot innovations, which will be present in all of the upcoming titles in the Sporting Legends suite of games. This, he said, will be sure to attract and immerse both players and sports fans of the legends that inspire the suite’s games.
Sporting Legends is set to include some of the most celebrated champions of the sports world, including Frankie Dettori and numerous other icons in the industry. The second game in the series will apparently be based on world-famous snooker pro Ronnie O’Sullivan, while the third – World Cup Top Trumps - will focus on the globe’s biggest names in soccer and launch in time for the World Cup this year. To promote the release of Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends, Playtech is running a three week-long prize draw from March 1 to March 22. Players will be able to win up to $200,000 in cash prizes along with a huge double jackpot that will be held during the Cheltenham horse racing festival in the UK. At the time of writing, shares in Playtech PLC (LSE:PTEC) were trading down 1.55% at 762p per share on the London Stock Exchange.
