Frankie dettori: sporting legends

Frankie Dettori is one of the world’s most famous race jockeys. The legendary jockey has gone on to win an untold number of horse races, including some the biggest that take place on the calendar each year.

The Italian could be considered a sporting legend; something Playtech certainly believe he is as they have provided players with a game named after the icon of horse racing.

Our Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends game review will provide players with all the ins and outs to ensure they are best positioned to win the race and take all the rewards in this slot game!


Featuring a backdrop of an epic race, Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends slot game is played on a five-reel grid that features 25 paylines that are available for players to form winning combinations on.

Bettors who love betting on horse racing will love this game as there is no horsing around involved. The maximum wager that can be placed is a huge $2,500 per spin, although those with more conservative budgets are able to place a bet from as little as $0.10 a spin.

Indeed, Playtech have provided players with the opportunity to pick how many paylines they want to be active across the grid, although this will have an impact on the winnings that can be won as there will not be as many opportunities to form a winning combination. In addition, the developer has also kept the ‘Autoplay’ button.

The playing card royal numbers all feature on the reels as the low-value icons, whereas symbols that more accurately represent horse racing are worth more. These include a horseshoe, a helmet, rosettes, a jockey celebrating and Frankie Dettori himself – the latter will provide players with a reward of 1,500 when five appear on an active payline in a single spin.

The game’s Wild – which is the Gold Cup – will provide wins of 10,000x the bet when five appear, whereas five Scatters will see players earn a reward of 100x the stake.

Feature Bonuses

One of the Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends bonus features available is the ‘Galloping Wilds Respin’ feature. This will see reels be respun that offer multipliers as they run across the reels. Players can trigger this game by landing a win that is achieved by landing a stacked racing Wild symbol on the first reel. The reels will automatically respin and each consecutive win that is made will see a new multiplier be applied to any potential win.

These multipliers come in the form of 2x, 3x and 5x the win for reels between two and four. If players are able to finish at reel five, they will receive a reward of 7x. 

One of the main bonus features in this game, though, is the ‘Golden Derby Free Games’ bonus, which is triggered when three scatter symbols land on a payline. In this game, players will be tasked with picking a winning horse. With the 12 free spins that have been awarded, players will cheer on their selected horse in the hope that they can win to provide a reward of a 3x multiplier.

Nonetheless, everyone who enters the race will win a prize as second will see their prize doubled, whereas third will pick up a reward of their free spins total.

There are three progressive jackpots available as well, with two of them available daily and weekly. The third of these jackpots is a mega progressive jackpot that continues to increase until it is won and resets. Any random spin can trigger these as well!

RTP (return to player)

Whilst there is a Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends Free Play version available at the top of this page to test out, bettors will not be able to benefit from the return to player (RTP) rate of 93.02% or the fact that any random spin could trigger one of the three jackpot prizes on offer!
