You don’t have to be a racing fan to know the name Frankie Dettori, this legendary jockey is famed for his winning record, his high-energy personality and his wild race celebrations leaping from horses! But knowing who this sports celeb is, tells you what kind of game you’re going to play, Frankie Dettori’s Jackpot Roulette is a game that’s pitched at the seriously competitive out there- those who like to beat the odds and take home the big prize.
This game is one of a number of special roulette variants we feature- casinos are always trying to come up with the next big thins- other examples include this Lucky Star Roulette game, Age of the Gods roulette (with a side bet) and mini-roulette with fewer numbers,
The best place to play this game? We say Paddy Power Casino – it’s the top game in their table games section.
Playtech have had the ambition to link this roulette game with a sportsman of Dettori’s calibre thanks due to the game’s eye-wateringly high Bonus Bet, which sets it on a parr with the best competition out there (and the sister slot game Lucky Sevens was a giant hit). A x297 bet bonus is within your grasp as part of the Magic 7 Bonus Round, if you have the skills and Lady Luck is on your side.
Would I be able to recreate this Italian stallion’s winning form and make it to the winners’ enclosure or would I end up falling at the first fence? I had a spin to find out more.
Look and feel
Here the screen is divided into two halves, the top is a rather smart-looking walnut wooden roulette wheel with 38 pockets and this is framed by a racecourse with a huge jump behind the wheel and the man of the hour, Frankie Dettori, smiling atop a horse on the left of the screen.
Below the wheel is a simple playtable with all the usual betting options in place. On the right of this you can use some of the simple shortcuts to keep your game play on the brisk side with the vital spin button too.
Here you are ready for the big race on the big course- Newmarket race course, here you come!
Frankie Dettori Jackpot Roulette is a roulette game played by the standard rules, with standard wins awarding you up to x35 your bet.
Simply select the value of your chips on the left of the playtable and with a click you will have selected your numbers and be on the home straight to winning! As the ball falls into the winning pocket on the roulette wheel, you are given a close up in a special window on the left of the wheel- this makes staying on top of the action that bit easier on the eye!
What you’ll want is to land the ball in the special bonus pocket, located above the “0” and activate the bonus game.
The lure for any player has to be the temptation of that whacking great bonus in the Magic 7 Bonus Round. This side round gives the player a special racetrack which reveals secret wins- but watch out, if you reveal that ill-fated “Collect” then the bonus fun is over-add up your winnings and discover if you’re the racetrack hero with a x297 win multiplier!
Putting all that big ticket fun aside, there’s also a progressive jackpot just waiting to be won at random with a faint-inducing £100,000 and more up for grabs!
I loved combining my competitiveness to Frankie’ winning status- you the player become the big beast of the track. This game is classic roulette with a brilliant twist, the Magic 7 Bonus element, (seven is Frankie’s lucky number), which gives this roulette a winning edge!
