Slammin’ 7s Slot Review
Released: Oct 2016
Coin Values: 0.01 up to 0.50
Slammin’ 7s slot is an iSoftbet release, which is one of the world’s largest e-gaming companies. The slot does not have a specific theme. Instead, it is designed as a colourful 5 reel gameplay structure, with an upbeat soundtrack. With 27 ways to win, winning combinations are made by the matching symbols on any position on the reels 1-3. The number of matching symbols is then multiplied on each column and the total payout is increased by the number of winning ways. AutoPlay is also available and the number of spins can reach 1000 or stop after a win or predetermined balance amount.
The reels are placed against the purple background and arranged in a honeycomb pattern. Obviously, the standard reel spinning is avoided here and each of the symbols are actually rotating, creating an interesting dynamics. This type of bubbly appearance is characteristic for iSoftBet slots together with Windows, Apple and Android devices compatibility. As for the vivid colours, similar style can also be noticed in Absolute Super Reels and Spin or Reels, iSoftBet earlier releases.
Graphics and Symbols
The visual profile of the game is simplified and the graphics deliberately basic. This way the focus of the slot shifts on the gameplay, which can be a nice break from over-the-top, “blockbuster” editions. The symbols are different variations of number 7 and they are divided into higher and lower paying icons. The game’s logo will traditionally bring more money, followed by the Bar and triple Bar icon. Symbols depicting the burning number 7 fall somewhere in the middle, having a medium value.
An extra set of characters include Multiplier Symbols, Respin and Additive Symbols. These icons can trigger different bonus features if they land in the middle of columns 4 and 5.
Three different multiplier symbols can appear on the reels; 10x, 2x and 5x. Once they appear in the winning combination, the win will be multiplied by the relevant number. The green Respin icon will award up to 5 Free Spins. This feature comes with a multiplier that doubles the winnings awarded on the bonus spins and can even be retriggered.
A special set of symbols are orange icons with markings +500, +100, +50 and +25. Once they join the winning combo, extra 500, 100, 50 or 25 coins will be added to the amount won.
To win any of the highest payouts, a combination of the game’s logo, Additive Symbol and the multiplier is required. Landing this combo will result in jackpot, and the amount will depend on whether the winning combo popped out in the Respins mode or the main game.
The coin value ranges from $0.01 to $1.00, with the minimum bet of $0.50 and maximum bet of $50. The symbols can cash out up to $300 or as low as $10 for a combination of at least 3.
There are two available jackpots and both are won with the same symbol combination. If the combination lands within the base game, the total payout will be $25,000. The identical combo during Respin will pay $50,000, placing Slammin’ 7s among low variance slots with 96.6% return to player.
Despite of the game’s basic appearance, Slammin’ 7s turned out to be a proof that a book should not be judged by its covers. Although you may not be amazed by the game’s visual and audio execution, the paying potential is more than enough to compensate. With a high RTP on one side and two jackpots on the other, this slot offer both stability and excitement, which is pretty unique.
Unfortunately, the game is not rich in extra features and innovations. Reduced to mere free spins and multipliers, the bonuses are rather crude and unoriginal. Most of all, not worthy of the gaming company such as iSoftbet. The redemption did come in the form of retriggerable respins, but more than that was expected.
