Frank Bruno: Sporting Legends Review
From 1982 to 1996, Frank Bruno was a professional boxer that dominated the ring. Throughout his career, he faces many top-rated heavyweights such as Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis.
Despite ending his career in 1996 and retiring, Bruno remained a popular celebrated within the British public and even went on to be a mental health advocate gaining an MBE from the Queen.
Naturally, he is a legend in his own right with is why Rare Stone decided to make a Sporting Legends slot with Frank Bruno as the subject. Frank Bruno: Sporting Legends plays on 5-reels with 50 paylines and contains free spins and the Sporting Legends Jackpot leading to incredible wins.
As the slot opens up, it's clear that this is set in a boxing ring which is fitting. In the distance of the slot, there are audience members as well as the red bars around the boxing ring.
On the reels, all the symbols are related to Bruno himself with his typical gear such as gloves and headgear as well as his World Champion Belt and Frank Bruno himself. Bruno even expands on the reels into a wild to give players the full view of him.
In terms of the audio, there is a steady beat throughout that is paired with Frank Bruno's commentary which provides inspiration for players. Ultimately, it's a cool attention to detail that is welcomed.
Thankfully, Frank Bruno: Sporting Legends does not just rely on the Sporting Legends Jackpot as there are expanding wilds as well as a free spins round which is fun to play.
Everything the player will need can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button and bet level button. Above the reels is the Sporting Legends Jackpot that highlights the amounts that can be found.
There are no stated base game maximum wins for this slot - but it's safe to assume that it's 1,000x the stake as this is the case for many of the Sporting Legends slots. Frank Bruno: Sporting Legends has a respectable RTP of 95.93% which is brilliant for a progressive jackpot slot that is also branded.
Of course, there is also a high volatility level for this slot which is expected. The biggest wins in this slot come from the three progressive jackpots in the Sporting Legends Jackpot that can be won at any time.
Frank Bruno is one of the most recognisable boxers in British history, so Rare Stone had a lot to live up with. Thankfully, in terms of the design and bringing Bruno to the iGaming world, they succeeded.
However, we expected a little more excitement in the gameplay perhaps with similar features to the Bobby George: Sporting Legends slot. There are times when Frank Bruno: Sporting Legends feels like a quick afterthought and was whipped together without any real thought.
Despite this, fans of the boxer will be delighted with his vocal appearance throughout and will be pleased with the Sporting Legends Jackpot. If this sounds like you, then do not hesitate to give Frank Bruno: Sporting Legends a spin.
