When you compare the graphics in Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens to some of the other photo-real Playtech titles you’ll be forgiven for thinking that this superb development house might have dropped the ball a little on this one. The reels are set in a basic green background, that’s more than just a little suggestive of the turf on which modern British horse races are run and the symbols in the base game are all appropriate to the game’s theme. The graphics really kick into over-drive with the bonuses – race your horse in the free spin round and watch clips of Frankie Dettori himself in the Magic Sevens bonus – these are without question the visual highpoints of this title.
You’ve got a simple slot machine base-game in Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens. There’s no tricks hiding behind the five reel set up that boasts twenty five pay-lines on which you can make your bets. Choose your bet level, hit the spin button and its starter’s orders and then they’re off – watch as the reels spell out your winning combinations, with two different types of scatter added into the mix for bonus action and a wild to help you make those all-important winners.
Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens comes with a gambling game with a difference. You can choose to gamble half or all of any small win on this game – you’re given a hole card, then you have to pick a card from four overturned cards that’s value is higher than the hole card in order to win a prize. If you win you can gamble the whole amount again, bank half and gamble half or take all of your winnings. This is a great alternative to the glut of red and black gambling games that you’ll see on one too many slots and it’s a lot of fun to play. Obviously it’s great when you draw a low hole card, but even when you draw a high hole card like a jack or queen, they’ll still be kings and aces hiding in the overturned cards, giving you a chance of hitting a winner.
If you manage to hit a bonus symbol on the first and last reels of Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens then you’ll be taken to a special race-track second screen bonus. Here you’ll see a segmented race-course where you get to pick squares one by one to reveal prizes that will either be cash amounts or golden trophies, which will win you a multiplier that comes with a short clip of Frankie doing his thing on horseback. The round ends when you pick a cash amount that comes with the collect icon on it, paying you out your winnings thus far.
As with many modern slot machines, Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens comes complete with a free spin round. Hit three of the special Magic Seven scatters anywhere in view on the base game grid and you’ll get taken to a second screen sub-game. Here you’ll be asked to choose one of three horses, and after you make your selection these will race. If your choice gets the golden trophy for coming first then you’ll receive 35 free spins, silver nets you 15 spins and if you come in third then you’ll still get 10 bonus spins. Once you’ve completed this mini-game it’s then back to the reels where you’ll get to take your spins with a chance to add to your free spin count by hitting the bonus scatters again.
Slot Professor Says
Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens is a work of genius. It combines two of the world’s favourite gambling past-times in the form of horse racing and slot machines. Just in case you didn’t know, Frankie Dettori is one of the UK’s most famous jockeys, making him a more than appropriate figurehead for this lovely Playtech slot machine.
I particularly like the gambling game in Frank Dettori’s Magic Sevens. There’s nothing quite like trying to find a card with a value higher than the hole card and get paid for it – this is a stand out little bonus that does give you a very good chance of doubling your money. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and have to hit higher than a low card, and sometimes you’ll need to get a higher than a high card – it all balances out in the long run.
The bonus games on Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens are also ace. The free spin round is good, but not quite up there with some of the free spin rounds you’ll experience on slots like Diamond Queen with its wild reels or Gonzo’s Quest with its big multiplier free fall round, as you’ll sometimes walk away from it with very little to show for your troubles. The Magic Sevens racetrack bonus is far more lucrative however - as you’ll generally find that you’re cashed out to the tune of around 25x your entire activating stake here.
This is another great slot machine from those maestros at Playtech, proving that they’ve got more strings to their bow that just their excellent range of Marvel slots. Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens is a truly awesome slot machine that’s tons of fun from your very first spin.
