Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven Slot review

Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven is a video slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines based on Italian horse racing jockey who has become a celebrity in the UK. He is considered by many as the best jockey of all time. The name Magic Seven comes from the time when Frankie won all 7 races on Champion’s Day at Ascot in 1996. The game comes with a 7,777 coin jackpot which you can trigger by getting 5 Frankie Dettori Wild symbols on an active payline. You can play from as little as 25p a spin to as much as £125 a spin.

Look out for the Racetrack Bonus symbol because if this appears on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously, you will trigger the Magic Seven Bonus feature. Once the feature starts, you will need to pick spots on a racetrack to reveal cash prizes. The prizes are multipliers of your stake.

There are 20 spots around the track and you can win a cash prize (from 1-5x times your stake) or a trophy (which increases the multiplier along the top). The trophy multiplier ranges from 1x to 7x. Every time you reveal a trophy, you will see footage of 1 of the 7 magic races Frankie Dettori won on Champion’s Day at Ascot in 1996. You will carry on making picks until you reveal ‘Collect’. I managed to win 75 times my bet the first time I triggered the feature. The maximum amount that can be won is a cool 280 times your stake.

Then there’s the Free Games Race feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven logo symbols. Click on ‘Start’ and the reels will turn into a race track with 3 horses ready to race. You need to pick 1 of horses. If your horse comes 1st, you will win 35 free spins. If you horse comes 2nd, you will get 15 free spins and if your horse comes 3rd, you will receive 10 free spins.

The free spins will then play out automatically. A good thing is that more wild and scatter symbols are added to the reels during the free spins to increase your winning potential. The only negative is that you cannot retrigger more free spins (or games). Finally, there is a Gamble feature where you need to pick a higher card than the one displayed. You can gamble, gamble half your stake or collect. You can also gamble up to a £2,500 limit.

Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven is a fun slot game with a good payback ratio as it’s a medium variance game – this means that wins are of a decent size. The features don’t come up very frequently but they do come and reward generously. For some reason the theme doesn’t quite excite me so I’d rather play slots such as Sultan’s Gold or Great Blue (both by Playtech).
