Playtech has kept things pretty simple here – the reels are set within a snooker table and include A to 10 symbols as well as cue ball and the black, a triangle full of reds, chalk and an action shot featuring Ronnie. The best of the standard symbols is the portrait-style photo of Ronnie which awards 5, 20 or 100 times your stake if you find 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
Even bigger rewards are on offer from the wild – it does the usual substituting duties and offers 200 times your stake if you land 5 across a payline. There are 2 bonus features to get stuck into here – they are as follows:
Championship Bonus feature – this multi-stage pick me round is activated when the Championship Bonus symbol lands on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then be shown 5 red balls. Choose 1 to hopefully receive a cash prize or better still a win all. You’ll then move on to round 2. The same process follows. Keep on working your way towards the final until you find a collect. The further in the tournament you go, the bigger the prizes on offer.
147 Maximum Break Free Games feature – 12 free spins are awarded if you land 3, 4 or 5 147 Maximum Break scatters on the same spin. You’ll also get a payout of 2, 10 or 50 times your stake. On the first 7 free spins, the payouts are at a standard 1x. On the next 4 free spins, they’ll get a 4x boost. On the final free spin, any wins rocket by 7x.
You’ll also have a chance to win 1 of 3 jackpot prizes. On offer are the Daily, Weekly or Sporting Champions Jackpot. The latter is the biggest naturally.
A bit like the game of snooker itself, this is a very simple but entertaining game. There’s nothing too flashy on offer here bit like the Rocket’s cue action it’s super smooth. The TV schedules will be dominated by snooker for the next few weeks. Ronnie O’Sullivan Sporting Legends is an ideal primer – I also recommend you try Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends (by Playtech) which is part of the same series.
