Lucky Hot 7s Free Games Deluxe


Lucky Hot 7s Free Games Deluxe

This new game on IGT’s S3000 Classic stepper cabinet reminds us all that one of the supplier’s greatest strengths remains its ability to reinvent the classic reel-spinning genre by adding certain modern elements. In this case, the addition is a bonus that gives the player a choice of playing out the event on spinning reels or a second video reel display.

The base game is a three-reel stepper incorporating 20 paylines. As the game’s name suggests, the main pay table combinations consist of a multitude of “7” combinations, a formula IGT began more than two decades ago with the game Red, White and Blue.

The winning combinations come from blue 7s, red 7s and the special “Lucky Hot 7s” symbols in blue or red, along with various combinations of each. While the game is available in other denominations, it is being promoted as a penny game with the top jackpot for three Lucky Hot 7s on the 20th payline at $400 times the line bet.

There also are “Fiery Wild” symbols in the mix, adding to the hit frequency.

The game’s bonus is triggered when three scattered bonus symbols appear in any active position. Once triggered, players can pick their volatility in the free games bonus where they choose between a lower-volatility 20 games at 20 paylines on the traditional mechanical reels or a mystery four to 24 free games on a 20-line video reel configuration for the “Deluxe Free Games” experience.
