A classic fruit machine with free spins, sticky symbols, and huge wins? You’d think it would make the Blazin Hot 7s slot perfect… wouldn’t you?
BetDigital listened to our complaint about it’s Joker 10000 mobile slot, which had too much background and not enough reels.
Here the 3 reels are big and front and centre, full of beautiful plums, cherries, bells and bars that come with a haunting warning when you load it “Warning! Volatile slot.”
The reason it can do that is because of the Fortune Spins button.
Press it and you can dramatically increase your bet by, essentially, buying yourself bigger wins.
How, you ask? By betting anything from 2x to 10x your bet, you can remove low paying symbols from the reels.
So, at the max level, you remove 6 of the 10 symbols (not counting the bonus trigger) – which turns your 0.05 a spin into 0.50 a spin. Not massive, and you’re only playing with the four highest paying symbols.
Whether you decide to use the Fortune Spin button, you’ll be happy to know that Blazin’ Hot 7s game has a couple of extra surprises up its sleeve.
Namely free spins, that come often, giving you around 10 to 25 spins each time, and sticky wins.
That’s when a symbol stays sticky on screen whilst the rest of the reels re-spin, until you create a win using that symbol.
The problem isn’t the feature, it’s the fact that if you use the Fortune Spin button to the max, you are still betting at your original bet level.
Meaning it can feel like hard work getting any decent wins on any of these 5 paylines. We’ve actually played multiple Blazing Hot 7s bonus games where we only got one single win.
Because despite all its bonus features, this is closer to a classic slot than any of the ones we’ve mentioned above; in as much that the big wins come purely from the paylines, not the bonuses.
Classic slot fans will love that, but might get distracted by the features, whilst bonus game hunters will soon grow tired of not catching enough quick wins on screen.
Then come back to this Blazin’ Hot 7s mobile slot and see if it strike the right balance for you.

Fortune Spins: After you select your bet level, you can choose to multiply that bet level, buying extra features in the process - a bit like the NextGen superbet phone games, but less elegant.
Spin Streak Bonus: After any spin, one symbol on the reels may be chosen to stay 'locked' in place.
The rest of the reels and symbols will spins, with any of the same symbols that show up also locking into place.
This continues until a win is achieved.
Free Games: Getting 3 bonus symbols, one on each of the reels triggers the free spins.
You'll then choose from the 3 bonus symbols, which will reveal anything from 10 to 25 free spins.
This is not a bad fruit machine from Betdigital, but with an RTP of 93.99%, the wins don't come easy.
That's mostly because you can remove the low paying symbols on the reels, increasing your chance of huge wins, but patience is definitely needed.
Neither one thing or another, we're not convince that this Blazin Hot 7s slot on mobile will stand the test of time, but it might be fun for a rainy afternoon or two.
