Golden Sevens offers a number of lucrative features for players looking to combine the simplicity of familiar fruit symbols, such as apples, lemons and oranges, with excellent bonuses and one of the most impressive progressive jackpots of any online slot. It has already become a classic through foregoing a complex theme and concentrating on rewarding players.
The simplicity of the basic game extends to the selection of win lines and game layout. For the most simplistic experience, players can select five win lines. More adventurous players can increase this to ten or twenty lines. Whatever is chosen, the game takes place over five reels and three rows, with the intention being to match three or more symbols across the win lines starting from left to right. There are no scatter symbols or wild cards; the game instead relies on the basic practice of matching exact symbols.
While every symbol is valuable – pay outs can be seen by clicking the link in the bottom right of the gaming area – players will mostly be aiming to spin in the 7 symbol as often as possible. It is the most valuable symbol in the game in terms of pay outs on win lines, and is also the key to winning the game’s massive progressive jackpot. This jackpot starts at 10,000 times the stake, so a player staking €0.50 on each spin is guaranteed a prize of at least €5,000 if they manage to spin in fifteen 7s. However, this amount is not set in stone. Instead, it increases with every spin by both the player and other slot players in the same online casino. It has been known to comfortably reach six figures, occasionally even reaching over half a million euros.
Another special feature of the slot is the Mega Game function, awarded on every winning spin. The player unlocks the lucky wheel mini game, where it is possible to win cash, more free wheel spins or miss and return to standard gameplay. While the prizes on offer are not as large as winning the jackpot, Mega Games are appreciated by many players for being the most consistent source of regular notable wins.
Winning spins also activate the gamble feature. Players will be familiar with receiving the opportunity to double their money, although may be more used to doing so with playing cards. Golden Sevens differs in that the gamble game is based on a flashing light. The objective is to hit the gamble button while the button is lit, and if successful, the player wins. If they are successful, their prize is doubled and they have the opportunity to gamble again and again until they either lose or collect their prize.
As with many online slots, players can choose to either immediately play for real money, or try the game for free using virtual credits. These credits pay out in virtual currency, but are ideal for testing the game mechanics with no risk, with every feature other than the progressive jackpot behaving exactly as in the real game. Those who choose to play for real money can receive an additional bonus based on their first deposit which can be used either on Golden Sevens or on any other game in the casino. The bonuses do not end there. Every spin rewards loyalty points, which then take the form of monthly no-deposit cash bonuses when certain levels are reached.
