If you have always loved simple, retro slot games that take you back in time, you should check out Hot 7 by Amatic, which can be played on a computer that runs on either a Windows or Mac operating system. No download is required at all. The main selling point of Hot 7 is that it keeps things as simple as possible. The game design and setup is as standard as it gets, and there aren’t many symbols or bonus rounds in this game. Still, it’s a fairly decent game to play, especially when you consider the high payouts.
Hot 7 keeps things relatively simple and plain. This 5-reel, 3-row slot game is played on a plain red background, and the name of the game comes from the fact that the 7 symbol offers the highest payout out of all of the other symbols. Other symbols include a watermelon, grapes, an orange, a lemon, a cherry, a plum and a scatter star symbol. There are only 8 symbols in this game, which is not a lot in comparison to standard slot games.
An interesting feature of Hot 7 is that there isn’t a wild symbol anywhere to be found. The only bonus symbol is the scatter star symbol, which pays out as long as 3, 4 or 5 of them appear anywhere on the board. The payout for the scatter symbol is relatively decent as well. Just 3 of these symbols will pay out double your total bet.
Hot 7 is a great game for beginners. There are only 5 playable lines, which keeps things simple. It’s a lot easier to keep track of your winnings and your payouts. In addition, you can bet anywhere from 1 to 100 coins on each line. The maximum you can bet per spin is only 500 coins. This isn’t a lot in comparison to other slot games that are designed to cater to high rollers.
Despite the small bet amounts, the payouts for winning combinations is quite decent. If you bet a maximum of 500 coins on a spin, you can win 500,000 coins for getting 5 of the 7 symbols in an active payline. You can win 50,000 coins if you get 5 watermelon or grape symbols in a row.
While Hot 7 doesn’t offer any interesting bonus rounds or features, you can still enjoy the standard gamble feature that is offered in almost all Amatic slot games, like Gem Star, Fortuna’s Fruit and Billy’s Game. If you’re willing to take the gamble, you could potentially walk away from this slot game with a mini jackpot of your own.
The gamble feature is relatively simple and straightforward as well. On a separate screen after each winning spin, you’ll be asked to guess either the color of a playing card to double your bet or the suit of a playing card to quadruple your bet. You can continue to gamble half or all of your winnings until you’ve won 8 times in a row. You can collect either half or all of your winnings from gambling at any time. Although it’s easy to increase your winnings substantially through the gamble feature, don’t forget that you will lose your entire bet if you make an incorrect guess.
As Hot 7 is a relatively simple slot game, you might want to set it to autoplay. The autoplay feature doesn’t come with any extras neither. You can’t set the amount of games that you’d like to autoplay nor can you set a loss limit. The game simply continues on until you hit a winning spin.
In addition, Hot 7 is actually quite similar to other slot games by Amatic. For example, it has some resemblance to Billy’s Game, which has 3 reels instead of the 5 reels in Hot 7, Bells on Fire and Hot Star.
Overall, Hot 7 is a solid slot game to play. It’s great for beginners who are still getting a hang of things, as you won’t get distracted by the extra features that are often found in other slot games.
