Blazin Hot 7s
You can get back in time with the Blazin’ Hot 7s slot game. Betdigital, the developer of this slot, seems to have hit just the right notes while creating this symphony. It plays enjoyable music without needing an ensemble orchestra. The game features looks and icons which we associate with the very earliest slot games. Also, unlike the complicated architecture that is so common today, it has just 3 reels. There are only 5 paylines on which you can win.
You might find nothing new in the design and look of this slot game. In fact, you will find the look and feel very familiar. But there is nothing vintage about the movements and animations. They are quite responsive and fast. The one unique feature of this game is the multiplicity of bonus features.
Blazin’ Hot 7s – RTP and Maximum Win
Let us get the bad news over with first. The theoretical return to player (RTP) for this game is only 93.99% on average. If you are a keen gamer, you will know that this is at least 3 to 4 percentage points lower than what most others offer. What this number means is that you need to spin the reels a large number of times before you get a winning combination. How the developers made this up is by keeping substantially higher returns for every winning combination. Additionally, the large number of bonus features makes it possible for a player to get windfall gains.
Blazin’ Hot 7s Symbols
As we said at the start, you will find every symbol reminiscent of the days of yore. The recurring symbol is a fruit, and several fruit symbols are part of the game. The fruit symbols you will find are plums, lemons, cherries, watermelons, and oranges. The other symbols are also straight out of a 90s slot game. You will find gold stars, bells, bars, etc. There are also symbols of red colored numeral seven (7) in solid blocks. This lucky number 7 is used in the naming of the game as well. The flaming hot fire picturization gives the name ‘Blazin’ Hot’ to this game.
We have already spoken about the relatively lower average frequency of wins. That is why the winning combinations of symbols are more lucrative. Here are a few examples:
- Even the lowest paying fruit symbols can fetch returns of 8 times the wager amount when three of a kind aligns on the payline.
- If the repeating fruit is a bar, then the reward shoots up to 20x of the bet amount.
- The same 20x reward is also yours if three bars occur in a line.
- For the bell or star symbols, the returns are even better, at 40x of the bet amount.
- The most profitable symbol is the combination of three red colored 7s. It gives an unbelievable 500x return on the bet amount. It can also be used as a Wild symbol to substitute any other symbol.
Blazin’ Hot 7s Bonus
This brings us to the most attractive part of this game. The lower rate of returns (comparatively) has been sought to be compensated in other ways. This has been achieved by providing smarter returns on winning combinations. The bonus rounds available make the package even more attractive. Let us take a quick look at the available options.
The lower value symbols evoke nostalgia. And they also provide better returns than the lower symbols of other games. But the Fortune Bet bonus feature allows you to remove even those lower value symbols. Depending on the stake you choose, the lower values which would get removed are listed below. Also, some higher values would be activated, leaving you with better opportunities.
- 2x stake – Wild 7s are activated
- 4x stake – Wild 7s are activated; cherries and oranges removed
- 6x stake – Wild 7s are activated; cherries, lemons, and oranges removed
- 8x stake – Wild 7s are activated; cherries, lemons, oranges, and plums removed
- 10x stake – Wild 7s are activated; cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, and bars removed.
Next, you can win Free Spins when you land 3 bonus symbols in a line. The bonus symbol is a set of three white colored numeral 7s. Below the symbol, you will find the number of free spins you have won.
Then you get the randomly generated bonus features called Spin Streak and Cherry Win Streak which can improve earnings. The first is activated randomly after a spin, and the matching symbol visible would get locked. This would continue till the time matching symbols are landed. The second feature is similar, only it involves only the cherry symbols.
What impressed us that this game offers so much in spite of having only three reels. This is because the more you play, the more you uncover the rewards hidden below the surface. In our opinion, this slot strikes the perfect balance between a classic theme and attractive bonuses. In spite of carrying a retro look, this game is compatible with all manner of devices.
