Play Frankie’s Fantastic 7 Arcade Online at Casino.com

Frankie Dettori is famous for being a highly successful jockey, winning the Derby, the St Leger, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, the 1000 and 2000 Guineas, as well as riding more than 500 other Group 1 winners. But probably his greatest achievement took place on 28 September 1996 when the charismatic rider won all seven races at a meeting at Ascot. Dettori himself said on the day of the meeting that he thought he had an each-way shot in the opening race and a good chance of winning the third, so to go through the card in such emphatic fashion was almost miraculous. The Italian-born jockey’s incredible feat has already been recognised in a great slot called Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven, but you can play an arcade version which has a touch of 1970s nostalgia combined with an interesting use of playing cards to generate the horses’ movement. Get a taste of that magical day by playing Frankie’s Fantastic 7, one of the great games available at online casino.

Sport of kings is an ace adventure

This tribute to Frankie Dettori borrows some of its inspiration from the Donkey Derby game which may still exist in amusement arcades in seaside resorts throughout the UK. But instead of rolling balls into holes which activate a mechanism that causes the plastic horses to move, playing cards perform the same trick. Here, the seven horses at the virtual starting line waiting to move across a green grid are, of course, the seven winners that Dettori rode that day. The aim is to pick a horse that will reach the end of the grid first. The odds on the far right reflect how many squares a horse has to cross before reaching the winning line. It’s one of many fantastic sports-related experiences at online casino games where newcomers are entitled to a free bonus worth 100% up to $/£/€400 (plus 200 free spins).

Join the race to the winning line

Once you have placed your bets on one or more horses it is time to click the ‘Race’ button and watch the action unfold! Every horse is dealt a playing card and the one which receives the highest will move one square to the right. If it is a tie the issue is settled by suits in this pecking order: spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs. However, beware the joker in the pack, though, because this card means a horse has fallen and will take no further part in the race. If your horse wins you will receive the odds at the start of the race multiplied by your stake which is also returned to you. One other feature involves betting on whether the top or the bottom three horses will produce the winner. Get in the saddle and harness your winning talent at online arcade games.
