Ascot: Sporting Legends Slot Machine
Try Playtech Slots
After releasing several branded slots such as Frankie Dettori and AP McCoy, Playtech has released another horse racing slot that comes with the Sporting Legends™ jackpot. Ascot: Sporting Legends is the newest slot addition to the developer’s portfolio, which offers 3 jackpots, several special features and is inspired by one of the most notable events in English horse racing, the Ascot Races.
There is not one or two Wilds in the slot, but three Wilds. You get the Bronze, Silver and Gold Cup Wilds, each substituting for all symbols on the reels except for the Scatter. But, the Silver Cup also Expands and gives you a chance for extra wins, and while the Gold Cup in addition to being an Expanding Wild, also multiplies all win combos found on the screen when it lands.
The Scatter is the symbol that presents a cut-scene from the races, where you will see the horses running. You will need to land it on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel in order to visit the exclusive High Society Free Games event and collect huge prizes. You get three well-dressed ladies holding pictures of horses. You need to pick one and see which prize you get. There are up to 20 Free Spins for grabs, with even more Wilds appearing on the reels. The Free Spins can be retriggered and you can get up to 15 additional Free Spins.
The three jackpot prizes available are the Daily, Weekly and the Mega Sporting Legends jackpots. Any spin of any amount, even non-winning spins, can randomly trigger one of the jackpots. The fun part is that the Daily jackpot must be hit by the end of the particular day you’re playing the slot, while the Weekly by the end of the week. Of course, the higher bets you place the bigger are your chances of triggering one of the jackpots, even though just by entering the Sporting Legends Jackpot game you have a guarantee that you will win one of the three jackpot prizes.
Theme & Design
Considering the theme is horse racing, it is only natural to see the horse racing track and the spectators in the background of the reels. It is also obvious that you will find royalty and high-society people on the reels and in the audience, and of course, cups.
So, the three Cups, the Bronze, Silver and Gold are the Wilds in the slot, while the Scatter is the Horserace Photo. The three ladies dressed in pink, blue and green are not symbols but contribute to the theme as they are all dressed like royals, with lavish hats and haute couture dresses. There is a similarly dressed Lady in Green as one of the highest-paying symbols. The Gentleman is the second highest-paying symbol, while Medals, Pocket Watch and the Horseshoe are the medium-value ones. The playing card Royals are the lowest-paying ones.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 25 non-fixed lines in Ascot: Sporting Legends and a betting range that starts at $0.01 for 1 line and goes up to $250.00 for 25 lines and the max line bet of $10.00. There is a rather poor RTP in the slot, though, that starts at $92.96 and can grow up to $94.96 as the volatility changes.
The line bet for the $250.00 max bet is $10.00. Now, all prizes in the paytable are multiplied by the line bet. So, 5 Wilds give you $10,000.00, the Green-Dressed Lady and the Gentlemen give you $7,500.00, respectively. The Medals give you $3,000.00, while the Pocket Watch and the Horseshoe $2,500.00. However, with all the prizes you get from the features and the three jackpots, you could pocket up to 8,000x the stake in Ascot: Sporting Legends. That’s $2 million, guys, and that’s definitely a payout you need to play the game to get.
We believe that Ascot: Sporting Legends does justice to the high-ranked horse-racing event. All the details that a horse race contains have been included in the slot, even the high-society spectators. There are three jackpots that can be won at any second, making you feel like royalty yourself. With no further ado, we will gladly recommend this extraordinary game to you.
