Powered by Ainsworth, Stormin 7’s is a 5 reel, 3 row, 100 payline casino-themed video slot. It keeps to the Aussie developer’s usual formula of simple visuals and a sleek free spins bonus feature that boosts the action with a variety of extras, in this case re-spins and multipliers. Play from between £1 and £75 per spin.
As usual, there’s nothing too flashy on offer in terms of the sound and visuals on offer in Stormin 7’s – the symbols on the reels all have a live casino feel and include poker chips, cards and dice, bundles of cash and the flaming hots lucky 7s. Land 5 lucky 7s in a payline for a payout of 750 times your line bet. Joining them are the standard low value playing cards symbols from A down to 9.
The golden dollar sign is the wild – it appears as a stacked wild and in the base game can land on any or all of reels 3, 4 and 5. The diamond is the scatter – hit 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature and receive 10 free spins.
During the bonus, a new Stormin 7’s symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes for everything apart from the scatter (which is now the dollar sign). Land 3 dollar signs anywhere and an extra 5 free spins will be added to your total.
The added wrinkle in the bonus feature is the addition of re-spins – land 2 or more Stormin 7’s and you’ll be given a re-spin. Look out for extra multiplier symbols which are added to the reels on these re-spins. These are usually 2x and 3x but if you’re lucky enough to find both of them in the same winning combination, then the multipliers are combined to boost your win by 6x.
As usual with Ainsworth slots, Stormin 7’s is a pretty volatile affair – expect some lean spells when the cashier seemingly goes only in one direction. Things can pick up pretty quickly in the feature though, especially if you manage to combine the multipliers on the re-spin for a 6x boost.
The Ainsworth recipe of high variance and a free spins feature with added extras is evident here – don’t expect anything revolutionary and you won’t be disappointed. If you like high paced, arcade-style action then Stormin 7’s should fit the bill nicely. If you want something more modern, Net Entertainment and Play ‘N Go have plenty of options.
