7’s to Burn is an old school-style online slot game brought to you by leading UK software developer Barcrest. Retro slot machine fans will certainly like this offering for several reasons. First of all, the visuals are very basic. They’re of good quality, but they definitely don’t have any of the flashiness that most modern-day titles do. For example, the graphics are simple 2D and there are no animated features to keep you entertained throughout gameplay. In fact, there isn’t even a real soundtrack to this one. You can hear a generic tune playing while the reels are spinning, but once they stop so does the sound. Furthermore, the symbols are very simplistic, and are all the more familiar for that. You have the traditional lower value fruit icons, starting with the cherries and oranges and finishing with the plums and lemons.
Then we have the watermelons, the BAR’s, the golden bells and star symbols. And last but not least are the red 7’s and the burning 7’s. This brings us to the setup, which also enjoyable due to its’ simplicity. There are no special symbols per se, except for a Wild in special cases (see below), but beyond that, as you will see immediately once the game loads, the layout is very much in line with the genre. It features only 3 reels, with 3 rows each. Moreover, there are only 5 active paylines for you to bet on. And these are fixed, so you won’ have the opportunity to adjust them. With that in mind, stakes start off at a minimum of 10p per single spin. And they reach a rather steep maximum bet of £500 per spin.
As we pointed out, the situation with the Wild is a bit different here from what you might be used to. When playing at regular stakes, the Burning 7’s symbol is Wild and can replace only the regular 7’s icon, so it will not be able to substitute for any of the other symbols. It’s also the highest paying symbol on these reels, offering a jackpot of up 250 coins.
However, if you decide to play the Hi Roller Game, then the Wild will also be Wild for the rest of the symbols present. In turn, the Hi Roller Game is a sequence of 5 consecutive spins for a minimum of £4 each. That makes a total minimum cost of £20 per Hi Roller Game.
You can also choose to increase the stake to £40, £60, £80 and all the way up to the maximum of £500, if you so choose. That is literally the only special feature that players get to enjoy. Keep in mind also the fact that the payouts of all symbols during the Hi Roller Game are halved.
Of course, 7’s to Burn will not be everybody’s cup of tea. It lacks that entertainment factor that so many video slots try to capitalize on these days, and the structure is extremely basic. That said, this may well appeal to die-hard vintage-style slot game lovers.
