Ready for a day out at the races. The Sporting Legends Grand National slot takes us to Cheltenham Racecourse for a feature-packed game which celebrates one of the UK's most popular sporting events.
This 5x4 game is one of the Sporting Legends series by developer Playtech. This kicked off with the awesome Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends, a tribute to the famous jockey. And it also introduced a first in the online slots industry, two timed jackpots that are guaranteed to drop, one on a daily basis, and one on a weekly basis, in addition to the Mega progressive jackpot.
The paytable consists of 10 to A card ranks, paying 0.10x, 0.30 and 0.50x the bet for combos of 3 to 5, and themed premiums. These start with betting slips and a pair of racing glasses, both worth 0.20x, 0.80x and 1x the bet for winning combos. Then comes a horseshoe paying 0.30 to 1.50x the bet, the gold cup, worth 0.40 to 20x the bet, and the racehorse paying 0.50x, 1.50x, and 3x the bet for combinations of 3, 4, and 5.
The Scatter is the finish post, and three or more in any position will trigger the Free Spins and give generous payouts of 1x, 10x, and 50x the bet. The Wild is a jockey and will help form line wins and also give payouts of 0.50x, 1.50x, and 3x the bet for its own combinations.
In the base game, some of the starters might get loose and gallop across the grid leaving Wilds in random positions behind them. If one of these Wilds lands on a Scatter, both symbols are active.
When three or more Scatters are in view, six initial Free Spins are awarded. These can be retriggered from within the round. But before they kick off, there's a horse race, and the first three nags to cross the line will each award one of the following bonus features for the round:
Random Wilds - this can add up to 3 Wilds to the grid on any spin during the bonus round.
On any spin in the base game or Free Spins, the Jackpot round can trigger. When it does, the player is guaranteed to win one of 3 great jackpots.
This great game provides almost as much fun as a real day at the races, especially in the horse race before the Free Spins. And it probably offers even more bang for your buck in terms of win potential than a flutter on the gee-gees. But it is still a highly volatile game, so always set a loss limit before playing. Good Luck!
