Part of the Sporting Legends series and offering their line of progressive jackpots, Ronnie O’Sullivan is a Playtech's slot machine with a snooker theme and with one of the world’s most skilled players taking on the main role.
The game will feature actual photos of the players, and these symbols will form combinations that pay up to $5,000 in the base game. 25 bet lines are available for the 5 reels. As features you get wilds, scatters, the Maximum Break free spins and up to 7x multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
The smallest amount in exchange for which the reels will spin will be $0.25. That’s sufficient to activate 25 lines, though the rewards will be just as unimpressive if you end up forming combinations that round. To get better payouts, you need higher investments, and the biggest ones allowed will reach $25 ($1 per line).
The game has three progressive jackpots to give away, all part of the Sporting Legends series. The Sporting Legends one is the biggest, potentially worth low six-figures. The others are the Weekly and the Daily Jackpots, which are guaranteed to pay within 7 days or 24 hours, respectively.
Regular wins in this game appear to deliver up to $5,000 through wild symbols. 7x multipliers which come during the free spins will help improve your wins significantly. Unfortunately, the RTP shows that the game is not a choice that you should be making. It’s set to pay only 93.01% back to the players over the course of its entire life, and that’s quite a bit lower than what most new games offer.
Ronnie O'Sullivan Slot Features
Multiple features are available in this game, but as usual, I will start off by presenting you the wild symbol. There is a good reason for that, and that’s the fact that it pays the most (5,000x) if it forms a combo and it’s also a familiar sight for most players. It doesn’t replace the feature symbols.
A Championship Bonus logo is going to be part of another feature symbol, which you can land on reels 1 and 5. Together, these two symbols will trigger a bonus game where you have to pick items and you get cash prizes in exchange. You can keep picking until you either win the championship, or until you find the Collect message.
The so-called 147 Maximum Break Free Games will not actually give you that many rounds, so it’s a misleading title. The way it works is that it gives you a 1x multiplier for the first 7 rounds, a 4x one for the next 4 rounds, and a 7x multiplier for the last spin. In order to activate this feature, you have to land 3 to 5 scatters with the 147 Maximum Break logo on them. They also pay a fair amount, up to 50x total bet, so it’s not all about the feature.
Theme & Design
Ronnie O’Sullivan is truly a sporting legend and a favorite of a lot of snooker fans, so he’s worthy of being the main theme of a slot machine. The graphics revolve around snooker and around this particular successful player, with photos of him and images related to snooker in the symbols. Even the lowest paying symbols, the playing cards, have balls of different colors next to them.
For someone that loves snooker, there aren’t any better alternatives out there, particularly thanks to the features, multipliers and progressive jackpots which are included. It’s a shame that the RTP is as low as it is though.
