Which of the seven sins will be your lucky guilty pleasure?
7 Sins is a five reel, 243 ways to win online slot from Play’N Go that boasts a variety of intriguing features.
This machine benefits from attractive graphics, smooth animation, and an eery musical score, as well as a unique pay table that features combinations of up to seven-of-a-kind.
What We Love
This game plays very differently to the majority of 243-way slots such as Immortal Romance and Thunderstruck II. The maximum win is much smaller, but you have a much greater chance of receiving a win in the medium-to-large range because of this.
The result is that your balance tends to last much longer whilst playing this game, so even if you do eventually go broke you do at least get a decent amount of playtime before it happens.
The double wild symbols on reel two and four permit the creation of six and seven of a kind winning combinations, which the game rewards with payouts of up to 250x your total stake. These special symbols also make it much easier to hit four and five of a kind wins, and result in a paytable that is much more generous than a typical 243-ways machine.
The second chance feature which triggers whenever two of the three bonus symbols land on the reels is another welcome bonus. Whilst it’s pretty rare to pick the extra scatter and receive the free spins, this feature is much more generous than similar bonuses in other games.
A cash prize of up to 15x your stake every time you hit two scatters is a great way to keep your balance topped up whilst you wait for the free spins to appear!
Finally, the free spins themselves with just one symbol on each reel is a unique and interesting type of bonus round, and the ascending multiplier really adds to the excitement.
Watching each reel fall into place with a 7x multiplier active is dramatic and suspenseful, and even when you don’t achieve a win, you will always feel as if you were so very, very close. The temptation to keep on spinning for another set of free spins is intense!
What We Do Not Like
The four and five of a kind combinations in this game pay very poorly, even compared to other 243-ways machines. For a chance at a big win, you’ll need to hit some of those big six and seven-way combinations, which means crossing your fingers for plenty of the double wilds. Unfortunately, those special symbols are extremely rare, which makes this a highly volatile game.
With such high variance, you might expect a larger maximum win than 1112x your stake, although that ought to be just about enough to interest most players.
All of Play’N Go’s recent slots have been worth a look, but 7 Sins deserves special praise as a must-play release that truly stands out from the crowd.
This developer has firmly established itself as a worthy competitor to the likes of Microgaming and NetEnt, and it’s no surprise to hear that Play’N Go have been the industries fastest growing brand over the past twelve months.
