If you fancy a day at the races and a bit of a flutter on the horses but you can’t be bothered to actually leave the house then we may have the solution; Ascot: Sporting Legends is an online slot from Playtech which brings the glamour of Berkshire’s finest to the spinning reels along with free spins and a progressive jackpot.
Ascot: Sporting Legends is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines; those smart reels float against a backdrop occupied by the main grandstand at Ascot and there’s a twinkling, fantasy soundtrack to accompany the thudding hooves.
The theme-related symbol include the smart, male and female racegoers, winners’ rosettes, a pocket watch and a golden horseshoe; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
There are three wild symbols in this game, the gold, silver and bronze trophies – the bronze acts as a standard wild, the silver will expand to fill its reel if there’s a chance of a win and the gold trophy will expand and multiply any wins by the value shown.
The scatter is the symbol with the galloping horses and it’s the key to the main feature.
This is triggered by landing three of the scatter symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five; as you can see from the video above you’ll get to choose one of the three dolled-up ladies to reveal a prize of 10, 15 or 20 free spins. There are extra wild symbols on the reels during this round and the spins can be retriggered an unlimited number of times.
The Daily Jackpot, the Weekly Jackpot and the Sporting Legends Jackpot can be won at random on any spin although the larger the stake, the greater chance of nabbing the big bucks.
Graphically speaking Ascot: Sporting Legends is not one of Playtech’s most notable slots but it’s colourful, fast-moving and doesn’t seem too tricky to trigger the free spins and their accompanying wilds. The progressive jackpot is the icing on the cake.
