AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is the latest title in the Playtech Sporting Legends series, featuring record-breaking jump jockey Tony “AP” McCoy.
“Playtech is expanding its highly successful Sporting Legends suite with horse racing legend AP McCoy, the latest star to feature in the triple jackpot slot series.”
The new game is the first to include Playtech Power Play, an enhanced spin option with extra features to boost players’ win potential. AP McCoy: Sporting Legends comprises two modes – Accumulator and Accumulator Plus.
Both modes offer players a five-spin bundle, featuring a Prize Pot that grows with each win and pays out on every subsequent winning spin. Additionally, the Accumulator Plus option adds wilds for every non-winning spin, which are all added to an extra Super Spin at the end of the round.
AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is the first in the series to feature in-game voiceover and video clips from its star. The 243-ways game also has a fortune-wheel bonus round hosted by AP McCoy. Players triggering the bonus round get a guaranteed 10 free games, with the chance to win free games, cash prizes, wild multipliers or win multipliers with each spin of the wheel.
As with all games in the suite, AP McCoy: Sporting Legends gives players a shot at winning one of three jackpots; the Daily, Weekly and Mega Jackpots. Every jackpot can be triggered on any spin and for any stake. If the daily jackpot is won before 9pm, it automatically retriggers, with the weekly jackpot running until midnight every Friday.
“The unique jackpot structure behind the Sporting Legends suite has already made it a major hit with players, and with Playtech Power Play, AP McCoy has a whole extra dimension to its gameplay. Seasoned players will relish the chance to build their prize pot in the Accumulator rounds, with the Super Spin adding an extra touch of excitement. With more Playtech Power Play games to come later this year, we’re confident its additional gameplay features and enhanced win potential can attract an even wider range of players,” – James Frendo, casino director, Playtech
