We almost consider ourselves to be an oracle of Novomatic’s various online and mobile fruit machine slots, but Super Hot 7s is one game that we have never actually heard all that much about. Coming off reviews of the likes of Power Stars and Sizzling Hot Deluxe, we have recently encountered some of the most legendary games in the genre. In terms of name value, Super Hot 7s is not on that level, but Novomatic is so experienced with this kind of game that the chances of them having messed up the gameplay, or indeed any part of the slot, are slim. The only way to find out for sure is to get playing, and that is exactly what we did as we proceeded through this review!
What to Expect
If you are a Novomatic fan then you have almost certainly sampled their fruity games at some point over the years, and if you have played more than one then you might have noticed that the look and feel of the various games rarely changes. That is the case here, with the fruit symbols having been recycled for basically the umpteenth time for inclusion on this game, and a familiar selection of cherries, oranges, melons and more await anyone that loads this one up. The game offers the same five-line configuration as Sizzling Hot Deluxe, but then proceeds to get a lot deeper into the feature action. The gamble feature returns as expected, but there is a little more to this game than players might have expected.
As is often the case on games like this one, the star serves as the scatter symbol. However, while it will generally stop short of awarding a feature and is more likely to award just a scatter win, Super Hot 7s boasts a free spins round. It is a relatively generous one too, as just three scatters on the board will lead to the award of fourteen free games. We are happy with the number and even happier to see that all prizes are doubled while the free games are active. The game even goes one step further as the lucky 7, which is already the most valuable symbol on the board, well and truly does become Super Hot as it retains its high payouts while also serving as a wild card if free spins are in play.
On top of all this, which is already one of the most exciting free spins bonuses that we have ever seen from Novomatic, is the fact that two scatters in view will trigger a respin. Batches of fourteen spins can be launched from within the round itself and if you only get as far as those two scatters, their reels will automatically hold while the others spin once again in the hope of bringing the third and final scattered star into view.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
We appreciated the popularity of Sizzling Hot Deluxe when we reviewed it but had to concede that it was probably too simple for modern players. That is exactly where Super Hot 7s steps in, as it is basically the same game to a point, even down to the look and feel and winning combinations, but the free spins bonus successfully takes the game to a whole new level. You will probably still need to appreciate the fruit theme to enjoy this game, but if you do then Super Hot 7s is one of the best games of its kind out there on mobile devices right now and comes highly recommended.
