Playtech has released the first title in its new Sporting Legends suite of slot games, which feature guaranteed jackpots to be won every day.

Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends is a follow-up to one of Playtech’s most popular games, Frankie Dettori Magic Sevens. It sees players ride to glory with a host of features, including galloping respins with a shifting stacked wild, and a rising win multiplier.

Each game in the suite is linked to a series of three timed Sporting Legends jackpots; daily, weekly and a Mega Jackpot. Players can view timers within the game that count down to each of the different jackpot deadlines.

“We are delighted to launch the first game in our cutting-edge Sporting Legends games suite, Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends,” said Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akad. “Following the success of Frankie Dettori Magic Sevens, we are certain our latest game will prove exceptionally popular with our licensees and their players.

“Not only does the game boast a beloved sportsman, but our industry-first jackpot innovation featured within the game and across our entire Sporting Legends games suite is sure to attract and engage players and sports fans alike.”

Created to celebrate the champions of the global sporting world, Sporting Legends includes a host of other world-famous faces which will be announced in the coming weeks.

The second instalment of the series will be based on world-renowned snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan, while the third game in the series, World Cup Top Trumps, will be released in time for the World Cup this summer and will feature the world’s biggest soccer stars.

To promote the launch of the first game, Playtech will run a three-week long prize draw from March 1st to 22nd, with players having the chance to win up to £200,000 from the weekly prize draw as well as a double jackpot held during the annual Cheltenham horse racing festival.

“Our content units have gone above and beyond with this suite of superb games,” continued Akad. “Playtech Sporting Legends games not only boast a host of incredible titles based on the biggest names in sport, but also crucially our unique, industry-first jackpot functionality that guarantees daily, weekly and mega jackpots 24/7, 365 days a year.

“We are committed to innovation and excellence and we are exceptionally proud of the games we have created. I’m certain they will be a huge hit with our licensees and their players.”
