Blazin’ Hot 7s
Let’s face it – retro is cool. It’s back, it’s in. While 3-reel online slots games have done an excellent job at emulating those found in brick-and-mortar casinos over the years, they often seem to go a little too far, with way too many swish and frustrating animations. Conversely, many of them seem too simplistic and basic to even hold a place in the online world. Blazin’ Hot 7s, a created by Betdigital, is one of those rare gems that manages to exude a sense of nostalgia without being too brash or simplistic. Straightforward gameplay mechanics, no frills and no fuss make this an excellent walk down memory lane for players who enjoy online slots for real money. It’s available to play at Mr Green Casino, where new members can look forward to an exceptionally generous welcome offer of up to C$100 on their first deposit, and more treats and rewards thereafter. Let’s take a closer look at this classic.
Much like the slots machines of old, Blazin’ Hot 7s is played on a 3x3-reel grid, and features a modest 5 paylines. The minimum bet is only 0.05 credits while the max is a decent 100. A convenient feature is the fact that you can quickly and easily select your bet size from a table of predetermined values, all stylised in a semi-pixelated, digital design.
Wins are awarded simply for 3 of-a-kind symbols landing from left to right across the reels, and the symbols include classic red cherries, oranges, yellow lemons, purple plums, bars, bells, stars and double 7s. There are two symbols featuring triple 7s: one being a Wild and the other a Bonus symbol. (As usual, the Wild will take the place of all other symbols except the Bonus.)
There is a Fortune Spins feature, in which you get to choose the multiplier of your bet, and add some extra risk to your gameplay by removing certain symbols from the reels and increasing the chances of extra Wilds. The game comes with some cool bonus features not often found on 3-reel slots, and work as follows:
- Spin Streak Bonus – this occurs at random, and will see matching symbols on the reels lock into place as the reels spin again, locking additional matching symbols into place as well. This continues until you hit a win, or until the reels stop spinning.
- Cherry Win Streak Bonus – this works the same as the above feature, except it occurs only with the cherry symbols.
- Free Games Bonus Round – this feature is activated by landing 3 Bonus symbols in any position on the reels, and selecting one of them will reveal how many free spins you get.
Don’t expect bells and whistles and unnecessary flash with this game – it is about as straightforward as you can get, and offers simple mechanics and basic gameplay while offering up enough in-game features to stay entertaining for hours.
