Online Casino Game Rules

Frankie’s Fantastic 7

Choose your horse

Frankie’s Fantastic Seven is an arcade-style casino game where you will place bets on the winner of a virtual horse race. A card will be drawn beside each horse, with the horse that draws the highest card moving up one square. The first horse to pass the finish line will win at the odds displayed before the race.

This game is based on Frankie Dettori’s legendary triumph at Ascot, where he landed seven winners in a single day. The horses used in the game are named after Dettori’s winners from that remarkable day. This traditionally styled casino game is sure to be a big hit with lovers of classic games like online roulette, blackjack and baccarat.

How to Play:

  • Select a chip from the bottom right of the screen by clicking on it. The chips have a range of different values.
  • Click again on the square showing the odds of the horse that you wish to bet on. You can place several chips and bet on different horses if you like. However, you must adhere to the minimum and maximum betting limits. This information is displayed in a display on the lower centre of the main screen.
  • Press the Race button when you have placed your bets.

Note: You can remove all chips and start again by clicking Clear Bets. Press Clear Last Bet to remove the last chip that you placed.

Note: You can change the odds format from decimal to fractional, and vice versa, by clicking the button on the top right of the screen.

The Race:

The Race will begin immediately after you click the Race button. A card will be dealt immediately to the left of each horse’s starting position. The horse that has been dealt the highest card will move up one square on the track. The process will then be repeated until one horse reaches the finish line.

Please note:

  • The horses with shorter odds will have some bigger squares, allowing them to move two places on the track in a single deal of the cards.
  • If a joker card is revealed next to a horse, it will be frozen and no longer take part in the race.
  • If two cards of the same rank are revealed, both horses will move forward one square on the track. If this occurs and moves two horses to the finish line, bets will be paid at 1/2 the odds.

When the race ends and if you have made a successful bet, you will be paid at the odds shown on screen.

Select Repeat Bet if you would like to automatically place the same bets as the last round.

Betting Options:

Frankie Dettori’s seven Ascot Winners – Diffident, Decorated Hero, Lochangel, Fujiyama Crest, Fatefully, Wall Street and Mark of Esteem – are all represented in the race. You can bet on individual horse, or choose to bet on a combination of horses.

Placing a chip on a square marked Evens will place a bet on a group of three horses (top or bottom three).

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Frankie’s Fantastic Seven ranges from a minimum of 91.34% and a maximum of 92.18%.


The game is played with the on-screen button described below:

Clear All Bets – removes all chips that have been placed as bets.

Clear Last Bet – removes the chip that was last placed on a bet.

Repeat Bet – places the same bets as the previous round.

Race – starts the race and confirms all bets. Chips cannot be removed after this point.
