AP McCoy: Sporting Legends
They’re under starters orders and they’re off! AP McCoy, one of the most successful horse jockeys in the history of the sport, has heard those words countless times in his career. The difference now is that he’s setting off slot reels instead of a racing horse on the game from the Sporting Legends series designed by Ash Gaming and powered by Playtech.
He will have you sprinting out of the gates with a Bonus Wheel that contains multiple prizes worth up to 1,000x your bet, Winning Line Free Spins with potential multipliers of up to x49 and a bonus game where you can win one of three progressive jackpots.
AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win. Pays are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right only. You can spin the reels from as low as 0.25 credits up to a maximum stake of 1,250 credits. The medium to high variance game has an RTP of 95.03%.
Graphics and Visuals
A rather generic but modern-looking dark background does not offer much of a racing track theme. That will come on the reels with racing items and the man himself featuring prominently on the reel strips. The displays for the three progressive are towering on top of the game window. An epic soundtrack makes you feel like it is Grand National day and includes comments from the jockey.
The AP McCoy: Sporting Legends slot features the card royals from 10 to A at the low end of the paytable, awarding wins from 4x to 8x for a five of a kind. They are followed by trophies, racing helmets, race club badges, AP McCoy on a horse and AP McCoy himself. Pays for a 5OAK range from 20x to 100x your stake.
There are three types of wilds in orange, blue and gold-like colours, substituting for all symbols except scatters. Additionally, you will see multiplier wilds during the free spins, displaying multipliers of up to x7. The scatters are a rainbow-coloured fortune wheel with the word ‘Bonus’ across it.
The Bonus Wheel Feature
Hitting scatters on reel one, three and five will trigger 10 free spins plus a turn on the Bonus Wheel to win coins prizes or extra boosts for your bonus round. The options on the Bonus Wheel are:
- Five extra free spins; can be won once only
- Wild Multiplier +1, up to x7; multiplies wins only when a wild is part of the combo
- Win Multiplier +1, up to x7; multiplies all wins in the free spins
- Coins wins of up to 1,000x your total bet
The centre of the wheel will spin again after the current prize is awarded. It is marked with Free Spins and Spin. Land on ‘Spin’ to get another spin on the bonus wheel, up to six spins in total. Land on ‘Free Spins’ and the game will lead you back to the reels where you will play the Winning Line free spins together with the extra features and boosters from the wheel. During the free spins, more than one multiplier wild landing on the reels will be multiplied by each other. Should you have an x7 booster from the Bonus Wheel, then it would multiply the win by x49.
Activate the Power Play
Feeling risky in your session? Then activate the Power Play on the AP McCoy: Sporting Legends slot to pay one amount for five consecutive spins during which your wins will be accumulated. The Bonus Wheel and Free Spins can be triggered in Power Play spins. You have the choice between two options
- Accumulator (10x stake) –score a win to see it accumulated in the green display, plus it will be added to the Prize Pot in the purple display. Any amount shown in the purple display will be added to the next win.
- Accumulator Plus (20x stake) – plays as above plus a wild is collected for each losing spin. These are then placed on random positions for a final Super Spin.
The Sporting Legends Progressive Jackpots
The AP McCoy slot has three progressive jackpots – Daily Jackpot, Weekly Jackpot and Sporting Legends Jackpot. These are pooled from all slots in the Sporting Legends series with a fixed percentage of 2% from each bet contributing to them. The two smaller jackpots will be triggered before the time limit runs out, while the main jackpot has no time limit.
Any spin at any bet size can win the jackpots, however, the bet size is directly relative to the chance of triggering the jackpot bonus game. Once entered, you are guaranteed to win one of the three jackpots.
AP McCoy: Sporting Legends is a busy slot just like a proper horse race. Plus, the accumulator feature lets you play according to your own style and preference. Of course, in focus are those progressive jackpots, especially the main jackpot as the payouts are usually life-changing sums.
