If I were to tell you this was a slot that featured cherries, bars and sevens, you might immediately think that the slot has possibly been done a thousand times before with traditional fruit machines. However, this slot by software house Saucify has a very modern, fresh feel, bringing new vitality to a traditional theme. Here you’ll have the opportunity to win big too, the wild seven symbol giving you both a large winning amount and increasing multipliers. This game is an entertaining and slick slot – and by the end of the review you’ll realise it also has a little ‘Super’ about it as well.
The Minted Sevens slot title sits proudly below the reels, the title gleaming against the shining green background. The reels themselves look and act as a traditional mechanical slot might, the reels raising slightly before spinning downwards. The pay table sits to the right of the reels and below sit the controls. These controls are the same as what you might expect when playing a slot at a casino, with push buttons which will you’ll click to activate.
All the time while playing you are accompanied by the sound of the hustle and bustle of a casino. You hear chatter, laughter, the beeping of machines and coins being won. This does help to get you in the ‘casino’ atmosphere, although being on a loop; it can become a little tiresome after a while. The mechanical sounds of the slot itself certainly feels real and give the slot some added authenticity.
As you might expect there are three bar symbols (with one, two or three bars) and a single cherry. You’ll also find two different sevens. The standard seven is light blue in colour and looks exactly as it would on any other slot. However the wild seven is framed – imagine the Superman ‘S’, but replace the ‘S’ with a seven and you’ll have a good idea of how it looks.
This three reel slot by Saucify has just a single win line across the middle. You’ll choose whether to play for 1 or 2 coins, but choosing 2 is advisable as the top prize gives you more value.
The minted seven is the symbol you’ll want to see at this slot! Firstly, it acts as the wild symbol and will therefore substitute for another to give additional wins. Should the wild appear once in a win, you’ll win double due to the 2x multiplier. If it appears twice the multiplier becomes 4x. However any of these will pale into insignificance in comparison to the wins earned when seeing the minted sevens three times in a row. When playing for 1 coin, you’ll win 2,000 coins, but play for 2 coins and you’ll win an impressive 5,000 coins.
For standard wins for 2 coins, you’ll gain 200 coins when the standard sevens appear on a win line and 100, 60 and 30 coins respectively for the 3, 2 and the 1 bars. You’ll also gain a win of 10 coins for any combination of the bar symbols. Three cherries gives you a 20 coin win and you’ll also win if the cherry appears on reel 3. If playing for 1 coin, you can simply half these amounts.
Saucify have done a very good job of producing a slot that will appeal to both the traditionalist and someone wanting a more modern video slot. Yes, take away the flashy graphics and the minted sevens, and this slot is no different to many others, but the fact is it does look impressive and makes you want to play. This is a good entry point for players new to video slots, as it bridges the gap from traditional to modern slots very well.
