Blazing Hot 7s is a retro game with very simple rules and real chances to win an amazing prize. In fact, it is possible to win up to 50 000 credits (game cash or bucks, depending on whether you play it for free or for real), but only if you are lucky enough. The game by Betdigital features traditional 3 reels interface you may have seen on the classic one-handed bandits in a casino or your local arcade machine club. It also has something that only online slot simulators have: 5 winlines and a lot of bonuses and mini-games.
Gameplay and rules
Blazing Hot 7s has very simple and straightforward rules. If you are familiar with online slot emulators, you will understand them immediately. You need to place a bet and after you do, you can start spinning reels. When the reels stop, there will be nine pictures on the screen. If you are lucky enough, they will make a winline. Depending on which pictures make the line, you can win a reward of a certain size.
There are not so many symbols to remember here and the paytable can always be found in the game menu. The highest paying images are the sevens. There are three different symbols of them, in fact.
The first one just pays 100 coins whenever three sevens are on the screen. The second one is the wild and the third one is the bonus.
Bonuses and mini games
While there are not so many built-in mini-games here as there are in some other virtual slot simulators, you can find what’s offered even more interesting and rewarding. Besides, the gambling process here is not interrupted by unnecessary transitions to other screens with unwanted puzzles and pick-me mini-games.
You just get what you are expecting from this kind of games: fast spins, great prizes and some small bonuses, such as wild images that can appear on the screen at any time. Perhaps, the most unique feature of this game is that each symbol acts as a multiplier. No matter which symbol makes a winning combination, your bet will be multiplied by up to 500.
And when there is a wild icon in the game, it can take the place of any other picture, making your chances to win even more feasible. Another extra feature helps you win even more: it locks all matching images in their positions and gives you a chance to make an extra free spin. It always works with cherries and sometimes randomly works with other images as well.
When the Bonus icons appear on the screen, you also get extra free spins, and the number of spins is determined by what you select in a side-game that is only active when these special icons are on. And in case you want to win the biggest reward of this game, you will have to select the highest difficulty – x10 to the bet.
This option removes the lowest paying symbols, but introduces some other features, including an opportunity to win the jackpot. When you play on the lowest difficulty (and especially if it is a free game), you do not have such chances.
This game is definitely for those who enjoy classic arcade simulators. Even the pictures you find on the screen remind of classic slot machines from Las Vegas casinos: cherries, lemons and oranges. Of course, the biggest prize is paid for the lucky number seven – as the name of the game suggests.
