Roberto Carlos: Sporting Legends Review
As one of the biggest footballers to come out of Brazil, Roberto Carlos is a household name amongst football fans. Despite retiring in 2012, he still remains a beloved footballer to many and is still known as the most offensive-minded left-back in the history of the game.
This makes him the perfect candidate for the next Sporting Legends slot as he is a legend himself. He has been forever immortalised by Playtech and Ash Gaming with Robert Carlos: Sporting Legends. The game keeps it simple with 6-reels with 50 paylines but contains solid enough gameplay to deliver the ideal slot for fans of the footballer.
Do not be surprised if the visuals do not 'wow' you when you open up the slot. Most other Sporting Legend slots have basic designs with a standard background paired with bright and vibrant colours.
The background is nothing special but does the job. All the symbols on the reels related to football with boots, whistles and trophies. The most relatable icon to Robert Carlos is the stacked wild that animates before the figure is triggered.
Sadly, we would've hoped for something a little bit more creative with the footballer and something like Lothar Matthäus Be a Winner. The music is not anything unusual but features a classic score that plays throughout spins which is strangely relaxing.
We assume the music is to fit the grand achievements of Roberto Carlos. Whilst this is befitting, we were hoping for a little more dialogue and focus on Robert Carlos.
One of the most disappointing points about this slot is easily the fact that there is no real bonus round. There are respins and multipliers but no specific bonus round such as free spins.
The general user interface is easy to follow with the spin button on the right side with the bet level underneath. The feature bet is to the left of the reels if this interests you.
There is no stated maximum win for this slot but theoretical it's 4,000x the stake which can be achieved by landing 6 of the trophy symbols on a winning payline with the maximum multiplier of x10 available. Whilst this is nothing crazy, it's better than most of the other base games of the Sporting Legends slots.
However, most people aren't playing these slots for the base game but instead want the jackpots that can be triggered at any time leading to wins that could reach into the millions.
Following this, the RTP is at a decent level of 95.48% which is solid for a jackpot slot. Strangely enough, this game contains a low to medium volatility level meaning that small wins will be frequent in the base game.
Whilst this is not the best Sporting Legends slot, it remains as one of the better ones. Sure, the design and overall gameplay could be better - but the win potential statistics and charm of Roberto Carlos defer this.
Robert Carlos: Sporting Legends is the first ever football Sporting Legends slot and will easily find an audience amongst sporting enthusiasts looking for their next online slot to play.
