Classic and simple are the two words that best describe the Golden Sevens slots game from Novomatic. The game is now available to online and mobile players, and it sticks to the tried-and-tested fruit machine theme.
Icons are large, simple and clear, and the accompanying soundtrack consists of the familiar beeping tune common to many fruit machines, which rises to a ringing crescendo whenever a player scores a winning bet. Golden Sevens Novomatic video slots play out on five reels, displaying three lines each, and features 20 bet lines. The aim is to score three or more matching symbols (or at least two cherry icons) in succession, starting on the left-most reel.
Standard Fruit Machine Icons
The Golden Sevens Novomatic video slots game does not mess around with exotic symbols or the popular poker icons. There are only eight icons used on the Golden Sevens Novomatic video slots reels: the classic fruit-machine symbols. The lowest-scoring symbols are the cherries, grapes, oranges and lemons, which all win 900X the stake for five of a kind. The lowest scoring combination, two cherries, pays 25X the bet, while three of a kind in any of these symbols wins 125X the stake.
Because Golden Sevens Novomatic video slots has no Wild, these low wins are higher than the average on other slot machines or iPad pokies, and the game also features a progressive jackpot that can rise to millions, to make it more alluring. The higher-value symbols are melons, bells, cherries and the Golden Seven icon. These also pay out according to a standard pay table, but four bells or Golden Sevens, or any five-of-a-kind among the high-value symbols, also trigger a side game. The side game is a wheel of fortune, with each spin winning either cash, or more spins on the wheel. The total SG bonus is then added to the player’s score for the spin that triggered the SG. Players are also offered a 50/50 “gamble” after any win, through which they can double up their winnings or win more SG spins.
Winning the Top Jackpots
Although the Golden Sevens Novomatic video slots game has no Wild icon and no dedicated Scatter symbol, as already mentioned, certain combinations of the higher-value symbols will trigger side games that can multiply wins enormously; plus, of course, there is always a chance of hitting the progressive jackpot.
As the highest-scoring icon, the Golden Seven itself has some superpowers. Five Golden Sevens on one bet line wins an immediate 5,000X the stake, plus 20 SG spins to increase its value even more. The Golden Sevens icons can also stack, thereby filling an entire reel with the same high-value winner, increasing the chance of the player scoring a winning bet line. Golden Sevens Novomatic video slots’ biggest draw card, however, is the progressive jackpot, which can rise to several million coins. To win it, a player needs to score stacked Golden Sevens on all five reels, thus filling the entire frame with Golden Sevens. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime possibility, which is why it offers a once-in-a-lifetime prize.
