Playtech are known for their ability to constantly offer innovative and exciting games but this time they really outdid themselves. The company recently announced a whole suite of new casino games themed after a number of high-profile global sporting events. These include competitions such as The Cheltenham Festival, The Grand National, and The World Cup, which are taking place in March, April, and June, respectively.
The suite is appropriately named Sporting Legends and features three games, each revolving around a well-known figure from the world of sports. The first title goes by the name Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends and will be available in time for the Cheltenham Festival, a horse racing competition that takes place every year. Frankie Dettori is one of the best-known horse race jockeys so it’s not surprising to see his name attached to this game. In fact, Playtech already had a different game themed after him known as Frankie Dettori Magic Sevens.
Meanwhile, the second game in the suite will reportedly be based on snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan while the third one will revolve around some of the most popular soccer players in the world. All three games have been designed to not only coincide with the appropriate sporting events but also to offer special rewards during the competitions.
Sporting Legends offers three types of timed jackpots: daily, weekly, and Mega Jackpot. Just as their name suggests, one player is always guaranteed to win big money by the end of each day or week thanks to this system. In addition, the Mega jackpot is a progressive one so it will continue to grow indefinitely until someone is able to win it. As for the daily and weekly variants, these come with timers that show how long players have until the jackpots reset.
