With just three reels, three rows and a mere five Paylines, Blazin’ Hot 7s from lesser-known operator bedigital showcases bold, colourful symbols against a dark background – all designed to create a scorching impression!
This game offers the best of both worlds with a retro arcade machine vibe plus some exciting modern bonus perks, no-nonsense graphics and full mobile compatibility.
How to play
Blazin’ Hot 7s is available as an HTML 5 or Flash-based offering. The huge betting range (5p to £100 a pop) covers all budgets and players from high rollers to those who enjoy a casual flutter.
The symbols will be instantly familiar to fruity fans and encompass watermelons, plums, cherries, oranges and lemons as well as gold stars, bars, bells and red 7’s.
Blazin’ Hot 7’s special features
The symbol showing three sevens in red is the Wild, and as usual, it substitutes for all others to help create winning combos, bar the white sevens bonus icon.
Bear in mind that the Wild is only active during the Fortune Bet bonus (described below).
This feature allows you to increase your bet and take away the less lucrative icons from the reel set to give you a bigger chance of landing larger wins.
It works as follows:
- X1 bet: Standard base game
- X2 bet: As above with an added bonus icon
- X4 bet: Orange and cherry icons are taken away
- X6 bet: As above but lemon symbols also are taken away
- X8 bet: As above but plum symbols also are taken away
- X10 bet: As above but melon and bar symbols also are taken away
Free spins feature
Your passport to this perk is to land three white seven bonus icons wherever you like on the reels; you then need to choose one of them to find out how many free goes you’ve bagged. (Unfortunately, however, you won’t be able to retrigger this round.)
This one can be awarded at random following any spin. It means all similar icons on view become locked in place. The reels then respin while further matching icons continue to show up, with payouts evaluated at the end.
Cherry Win streak
This cherry-on-the-cake perk is like the one described above, but only the cherry icons remain locked in place.
With no progressive jackpot, the top prize here is 500x stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is a little below average in Blazin’ Hot 7s at 93.99%. The high volatility means you’re unlikely to be landing wins every other spin. But if you’re happy to stick with it, you could still be in line for some good earnings.
This is a fun and engaging little game which punches way above its weight, not least when you consider it only has three reels, equally it offers a number of interesting bonus perks. So don’t be put off by its apparent flimsiness, although the design, we have to admit, is not exactly unique.
It will appeal in particular if you’re a committed fan of classic slot games, and it does give the feeling of being in an actual casino as you play.
