Wild 7 Slots
This is one of many slots in the Amatic range which have the word ‘Wild’ in their title. There is nothing particularly wild about the setup or game-play – instead this is another example of a basic yet entertaining slot from Amatic’s live portfolio. The wild in this case comes from the fact that the red 7 will substitute for any other symbol on the reels (except the scatter). This is a standard feature of slots these days – however back in 1993, when Amatic got started in their home country of Austria, wild symbols were a new and exciting development. The core of this game is a 5 reel video slot with 5 reels, and the main reason to play is that you can hit multiple wins of up to 100x your bet from the same spin.
Design-wise, this game has a red background, with a wild 7 logo on the top having flames on either side. The back of the reels is a plain black colour, which contrasts with the bright colours and vivid shading on the symbols. Expect the classic slot symbols on the reels, including cherries, oranges, grapes, plums, lemons and a melon. There is also a big green star with a blue background – and of course the red 7 which is key to the game.
There are some animations, which involve flames engulfing the different symbols when you hit winning combinations. I can’t say that these are too impressive – think flames and flashing within the ‘box’ of the winning symbols and you are on the right track. When the game first loads, you get a short tune, though this is the highlight audio-wise. There are short bursts for winning combinations after that only – in addition the whirr of the reels shared by all Amatic slots.
