Whats not so hot?
Software houses fined tuned their online slot machine releases over the years so that they appeal to players from various walks of life. RealTime Gaming’s 777 is just this, it’s a classic slots that sticks to a tried, and tested recipe. The graphics of this simple 3-reel progressive jackpot won’t blow you away, neither will the top jackpot of $20,000 on a single spin. Compared to The Mariachi 5, 777 does not reach the same height, yet it’s still a modern classic that warrants your attention.
With a very high RTP (theoretical return to player percentage) of 97%, the maximum payout is around 100x your stake; not bad, but not good either. With that being said it is a progressive, unfortunately it won’t make you a millionaire. It does have an innovative streak in its bag namely a ‘Hold’ option. 777 slots can now be played at Sun Palace Casino from $0.10 to $200 per spin. The operator throws a match bonus your way valued at 400% up to $10,000 to play the game (terms and conditions apply). The standard bars, red 7s, and card and coins symbols appear on the reels. The most valuable symbols are Red 7s, 3 of them pay 100x your stake.
If you’re looking for a slots with plenty of features 777 will disappoint you. It has no free spins with multipliers and, no wilds. Game play is straightforward without the thrills aside from hitting the jackpot of course.
It all boils down to the Hold option. There are three Hold buttons situated beneath the reels. As you spin reel 1 symbols appear, if you don’t land a winning combination, the Hold button can be activated to lock the reels. A reel will remain locked while 1 or 2 reels spin again, the aim here is to hit bigger winning combinations. Bear in mind, just like the Buy Feature in Betsoft’s Yak, Yeti & Roll, the Hold function comes with a price. It becomes more expensive if you aim for the high value symbols.
When 3 Card and Coins symbols pop up you’ll win the progressive jackpot. Therefore, if your bet is $200x100x your stake you’ll win the grand prize of $20,000.
777 slot is a classic that’s devoid of the technical marvels we come to love in the modern slot machine. It’s not RTG’s finest creation, but it does sport a Hold option, and it’s a progressive jackpot. With superior graphics, Mermaid’s Pearls from the same vendor offers plenty of in-game bonus rounds, and a jackpot of $120,000.
How many special features are there?
777 Slots has a Hold function that can be activated at a cost. Once triggered, 1 or 2 reels lock while the third reel spins again. If you’re chasing the highest symbol combination such as the Red 7s, the Hold function will cost you a bit more.
