Blazing 7s Hot Tournament

This is the first title released on Bally’s new Alpha 2 Pro Series V22/32 cabinet, which offers a dramatic 32-inch vertical display above a 22-inch touch display as well as all the other Pro Series features such as the iDeck button panel/touch-pad, LED cabinet lighting and HD surround-sound.

The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot available in penny through nickel denominations with a 300-credit maximum bet. The classic Blazing 7s theme, in its unique Hot Shot configuration, is augmented with tournament features.

The Hot Shot configuration features miniature versions of five of the most popular classic Bally reel-spinners—Blazing 7s Sevens Times Pay, Triple Jackpot Triple Blazing 7s, Double Jackpot Triple Blazing 7s, Diamond Line and Blazing 7s. When the bonus is triggered, one of the miniature slots spins to a bonus award or a progressive jackpot. The top line jackpots on the mini-slots result in progressives at resets ranging from $20 to $2,000.

The new feature on this version, though, is the mini-slot tournament mystery feature. When the random trigger is enacted, linked games go into a tournament, with paying combinations translating into points. Players with point totals between 2,000 and 2,999 win $100; points totaling 3,000-3,999 win $1,000; and, 4,000 or more points return the top prize of $10,000.
