AGS

French Quarter 7s is a classic single-line, three-reel slot game on the sleek AGS Icon video cabinet. The New Orleans French Quarter theme plays out through bright colors on the reel symbols and the top-screen LCD monitor, and through a background of jazz music during the reel spins.

The base game is offered in the dollar denomination in the manner of an old multiplier-style reel slot—bets of three, six, nine, 12 or 15 credits per spin, with corresponding multiplied jackpots. There are frequent wilds applied to classic slot symbols including cherries, bars and several different-colored 7s. The top jackpot of 5,000 credits times the multiplier is returned for three wild symbols.

Elsewhere in the pay table, the primary game always returns the top possible jackpot—for instance, two wild symbols and a cherry on the payline would return the prize for two wilds, because it is larger than the pay for three cherries.

The top-screen bonus is a mystery event, potentially triggered by any three-symbol win. A large Multiplier Wheel appears on the top monitor, with values of 1X, 2X, 5X and 10X. The player is randomly awarded from one to five spins of the wheel, with the value of each added to the total Win Multiplier after the spin. When all spins are complete, the accumulated multiplier, from 2X to 25X, is multiplied by the value of the triggering win.

According to the manufacturer, the first spin of the Multiplier Wheel is guaranteed to result in at least 2X, so the win on the triggering spin is always guaranteed to be improved by the bonus.
