The interface and great design of Hot 7’s still impress me and I think it’s one of the best land based machine imitation what I played with for a long time. The characteristic properties are definitely there – the flashing lights doesn’t bothering at all and not too powerful, the paytable is well-visible and everything is easy to see, the reels don’t get out of the focus are not for a moment and solid casino noises can be heard in the background. If I add all of these to the absolutely great graphics and nice, colourful - fruit, 7’s, bell, star symbols - so all I can say is: Great job!
The intention to be an authentic slot machine is perfectly observable here at game functions too and it seems it follows the quality greatness of exterior. The game is a Jackpot machine with 5 Burning 7’s and playing with max. bet but if less stake is placed this amount is 1500 times of coin value. The slot rules and features are very simple because they’re basically no existing. The only rule is the fix stake amount which is €0.50 and its multiplier up to €2.50 so at this 5 coin slot the instruction is the follow ‘Place your bets and spin the reels’. That’s all!
No wild, no multiplier, no substitution just spin and win function. Maybe that’s why I love this game for its simplicity. I usually play it whit €0.50-€1.50 (and I’m sorry that the €2.50 bet that would make available to have a chance for Jackpot is too much for my usual bankroll and even my style) and even though it uses very large number of symbols so the winning combination has more chance to avoid me and the longer empty streaks are occurred but sometimes it can really return some nice winnings. It’s a typical game where there are 15-20 spins without any good combination then the next spin gives three Blue Burning 7’s and x200 profits and it not happened with me just once or twice so I think this is the trend here. That’s why I always vary my bets between that value range and try to survive that long stretches with minimal bet and when I feel the time is slowly coming I raise my bet hoping for a bigger winner with higher stake. Sometimes it’s working sometimes not but if the prediction was right, a little nicer profit is almost guaranteed.
If you’ve played a simple 3-reel, 1-payline traditional classic slot you know don’t have to be too high expectation about extra features and some slots you really don’t need that at all. Hot 7’s is exactly this slot what’s main strengths are in its simplicity and to not complicated the things. You really got here what you see, nothing more - nothing less but the services of this game are high quality and for me it’s a pleasure to play with it.
