Spinning 7’s Slots Machine from Amaya
Fans of traditional slots will be delighted the moment they first enter this 5 reel video slot from Amaya. On the reels you’ll many of the classic slot symbols such as the bell, the triple, double and single BARs, the melon and of course the cherry. You could be forgiven for thinking that the game plays traditionally too; however, you would most certainly be mistaken! Spinning 7’s has some nice original touches, like a streak breaker where you’ll win a random payout after a losing run and a free spins bonus round where you’ll never quite know which multiplier will be applied!
How to Win on Spinning 7’s
The large golden bell is certainly the symbol you’ll want to see on the reels, this both the highest paying and the wild. As the wild it will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the spinning 7 and the bonus symbols. If you manage to land five Bell symbols in a row on a win line you’ll pick up a very impressive 5,000 coins, while even 4 in a row pays 500 coins.
The three grouped red sevens pay 750 coins, while the triple, double and single BAR symbols pay 500, 350 and 250 coins respectively. Theses standard symbols are completed by the melon, the plum, the lemon and the cherry.
So where do the ‘Spinning 7’s’ of the title come in? These appear on the reels as usual, the only difference being that these are stacked occasionally too. When the reels come to a stop, all of the spinning 7’s on the reel will now turn into a randomly selected symbol. This can be particularly profitable if there are many spinning 7’s on the reels, meaning one randomly picked symbol will now dominate the reels – even better if there were some of these symbols on the reels anyway.
The final symbol on the reels is the bonus one. Land this 3, 4 or 5 times and you’ll enter the free spins bonus with 15, 20 or 30 spins respectively. To the left of the reels you’ll find a bonus multiplier which will randomly select a multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x for each of these free spins (landing the 5 Bells in a row with the 10x multiplier might be good here!).
This game also has a ‘Streak Breaker’ option, which comes at the cost of an additional 5 credits. On the right hand side of the reels you’ll find a meter which will fill with a coin after each losing spin. When you have five losing spins in a row, the meter will now be full. When full, you’ll be awarded a random prize to break that losing streak.
Design and Setup
The game has an eye catching design set against the backdrop of light blue, with sevens floating through the scene. The control panel is impressive too, with large, bright red buttons which you certainly can’t miss. The reels themselves have a real classic feel, these backed by a cream color, while all of the symbols appear as they might have at any time in the last 50 years, which will certainly appeal to traditional slots fans. The spinning 7’s and the bonus symbol do however add a modern feel to the game. The accompanying sound has a classic feel too; the loud whirring and clicking of the reels joined by appropriate winning and bonus noises.
Like the majority of online slots, Spinning 7’s is played out on 5 reels, this particular game having a total of 20 win lines. You cannot change this number, although you can choose to play for 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 credits per spin, the credit value ranging from 2c all the way through to $5. The added streak breaker option comes at the cost of 5 credits for every 20 credits played, making for a maximum spin cost of 125 credits. Unfortunately the slot doesn’t have an auto play option, which would have been a nice addition.
This Amaya designed slot may appear to be a traditional slot at first, but there is much more to this game than meets the eye. The Spinning 7’s add a nice touch to the base game, making it much more interesting than your standard slot, while the ‘Streak breaker’ option gives you some insurance against a really bad session. The free spins bonus round only makes the game better, with a large number of spins joined by some impressive multipliers. All in all, this makes Spinning 7’s a highly entertaining game – check it out for yourself soon.
