Is 7 Your Lucky Number?

Are you burning for a pokies machine game that gives wins without too much fuss? Do the latest trends in semi-video game video slots leave you boiling mad? Then check out Novomatic’s Super Hot 7s, where you can leave the fluff and just enjoy straight-shooting slot wins of up to 50,000 bucks.

Gameplay

The Super Hot 7s online video slot is a 5×3 reel slot has just 5 paylines, but don’t let that fool you: this seemingly simple slot is hiding some fantastic wins and features. For example, you can increase your maximum bet up to 50.00, instead of the usual 20.000, to enjoy corresponding wins of up to 50,000 coins! The graphics are basic, the audio is composed of old arcade machine sounds and the reels are as basic as they come. 7’s, of course, are the biggest payout base symbols, paying up to 50,000 coins for x5. The other 6 base symbols are the watermelon and grapes, the plum, orange, lemon and cherries. There are no wilds in the base game, but there is the standard double or nothing Novomatic Gamble Feature, where you have to guess the mystery card’s colour to multiply your wins x2.

Special Features

There is also a scatter symbol, represented by the star, which pays up to 2,500 coins on its own and doesn’t even need to land on any paylines for a win. When 3 or more scatters stars appear anywhere on the reels, they trigger the Free Games feature, which is surprising in its bonuses and variations, considering this is designed to cater to the ‘basic is best’ crowd.

In this special feature, you get 14 free spins, which can be retriggered, and 7s turn into Wild symbols, which can substitute for any other symbol on the board, except the scatter stars. Plus, when the Wild 7s are part of a winning combination, it doubles your payout, but be warned: if the payline is entirely made up of 7s, the ‘doubling’ effect is void. Also, even if you just get x2 scatter symbols on the reels during a free spin, you get a special Bonus Respin where only one of the reels will respin to give you an extra chance to get x3 scatters and retrigger the free spins game.

Verdict

Novomatic’s Hot slot series caters to people who prefer the simpler, old school style fruit machine pokies, but Super Hot 7s feels like a blend of a simple game with some big bonus features and super payouts too. Coupled a decent RTP of 95.31%, it feels like Novomatic may have found a winner!
