Burning Hot 7’s Slot from Novomatic
In a world where slots are featuring more and more bonus games, oversized reel setups and complex features, it can be nice on occasion to strip it back a little and play a more traditional game. Burning Hot 7’s slot machine is something of a classic slot, with just five pay lines, although you’ll also find a couple of features to add some variety. The highlight of this 3-reel slot is the free spins bonus feature, where you’ll get a nice number of spins.
You wouldn’t say that this is the most modern looking slot, although this clearly isn’t the aim of Novomatic here. The game is a nice throwback to the slots of old, although there are some changes. For example, the reels are black in color as opposed to the more traditional white (these turn purple during the bonus feature too) and the control panel is a bit more modern than you might have found at a classic slot. You’ll also find some nice commentary to accompany the game in a box below the reels. Accompanying the game is a lively, uplifting soundtrack, while your standard beeps and buzzes are heard at appropriate times.
How to Win on Burning Hot 7’s
This Novomatic designed three-reel slot has five win lines, these are the three horizontals and the two diagonals. To win you’ll need to simply land three symbols in a row. The ‘Burning Hot 7’s’, which have an orange and red color suggesting fire are the highest paying of all, worth 800 coins for landing three in a row. This also acts as the wild symbol, substituting for every other symbol, giving you the opportunity of many extra wins. The pair of gold stars pay 200 coins, while the double BARs are worth 75 coins. The plums, lemons, oranges and cherries all pay 20 coins, while hitting three white X’s in a row is worth 10 coins.
Throughout the game the four fruit symbols are stacked and this can gain you an additional bonus win. If you manage to fill all three reels with the same fruit symbol, you’ll now obviously have the 3 in a row payout of 20 coins for all of the 5 win lines, but this will also be doubled, making for a 200 coin payout.
To add some extra variety to the game you’ll find a gamble feature. This sees you taken to a screen where you’ll find a face down playing card. Simply predict whether the card is black or red. Get it right and your win is doubled.
Fire Up the Burning 7’s Bonus Round
The final symbol on the reels is the Bonus one, this being one you really can’t miss as it is bright pink. This is the scatter and If it appears on all three reels you’ll gain an immediate win of 25 coins, as well as entry to the free spins feature.
A question mark will now appear above each of the three scatters and you’ll now pick one of the three. This will now reveal a number of spins anywhere between 14 and 20 and like any good pick round, you’ll also see the result of the two scatters you didn’t pick.
The free spins play in exactly the same way as the base game, although there are two added bonuses. First, every win you land throughout the feature is doubled, which is always good. Second, should you land three more scatters, you’ll re-trigger the feature – meaning you’ll pick again and the new number will be added to your existing spins.
Design and Setup
With just 5 win lines, the only decision you’ll have before hitting spin is the coin value, which you’ll multiply by 5 to give you your total stake for the spin. The ‘auto play’ button is a handy one. Simply hit it to start and then hit it again to stop.
Burning Hot 7’s does not stand out strongly from the other 3-reel slots on the casino floor – though this game does have a certain charm. With a variety of classic symbols gracing the reels, slot traditionalists will certainly find a great deal of enjoyment in playing, while the bonus features there are make for an entertaining game. The free spins feature is a particularly good one, as you’ll find both a good number of spins and an added multiplier. Add in the multiplier for filling the reels with a fruit symbol and some big wins could be heading your way.
