Feast on one million ways to win on the slot from Red Rake Gaming. Million 7 is a fusion of a classic fruit machine with the proprietary game engine, featuring dynamic reels and dropping a random number of two to 10 symbols onto each reel on every spin. An action-packed game awaits with symbols that are converted into money with the “Money Collect” feature, instant free spins, bet multipliers or the “Frenzy Sevens” mini-game with the gold “M” symbol, scatter multiplier pays with gold 7s and silver 7s as well as a Silver M Wild Respin. Going by their past release Tiger and Dragon, the win potential should peak again at 20,000 times your bet.
Million 7 is a video slot with six reels, 10 rows and up to 1 million ways to win. The actual number of ways is randomly selected for every spin by a special reel mechanic. Pays are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right only. You can play the game on mobile or desktop from 0.20 to 50 credits per spin. The RTP of this high variance game is set at 95.30%, which is slightly below the industry average.
The design looks rather disappointing with a generic purple background and lights illuminating the giant game window from behind. There is certainly not much to shout about. The reels itself are populated by traditional fruit machine symbols while a fast-paced electronic soundtrack comes to live the soon you spin the reels.
The pay symbols start at the low end with oranges, lemons, melons, strawberries and bells, awarding 0.8x to 1x your bet for a single six of kind. They are followed by single, double and triple bars as well as diamonds and red sevens. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 20x your stake.
A golden W is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols except horseshoe bonus symbols, banknote bundles, silver and gold 7s as well as silver and gold M symbols. You might have guessed by now, the sheer amount of special symbols promises a feature frenzy as you will see in just a moment.
The slot has at all times 1 million ways to win but only a random selection will be active on each spin. To determine the actual number of ways for a round, the game spins a random amount of blocker symbols into view. These are icons in a greyish colour showing small 7s. On average, 30 to 40 blockers will land on random reel positions on a spin. Expect to see anything from just over 1,000 ways, up to 1 million. However, the maximum ways to win will be a rare occurrence.
I can’t shake off the impression that Red Rake Gaming has tried to outdo itself on this slot as they included so many features that it appears overloaded and it will take some time to understand it all. We will try our best, as usual, to put everything in chronological order.
The most common feature seems to be the Money Collect feature or maybe we were just lucky to trigger it so often in our test runs. The said blockers that are dropped onto the reels on every spin can turn and unveil a banknote bundle while the spin is in progress. Minimum three banknote bundles in one spin will trigger then the feature. All blockers will turn around to reveal a coin win. Any x2 marked bundles appearing will multiply the total win from the feature, whereas more than one multiplier will be added, e.g. three multiplier bundles will result in an x6 multiplier. Should you be so lucky to trigger the feature with four banknote bundles, then all following the four will be x2 multiplier bundles.
The next excitement will come from the M Wild Respin feature. Silver M symbols can appear on reels two and three. Land at least one to see it turn into a sticky wild and award a respin. Trigger the respin with two Silver M symbols to have the win from the respin multiplied by x2.
Silver and Golden 7s will award scattered pays in the base game and free spins. Only one Golden 7 can land per reel in one spin with three to six paying 2x to 200x times your total stake. Up to two Silver 7s can land on each reel in a spin with the pays for 3 to 12 scattered symbols ranging from 1x to 100x your total bet.
We are barely halfway through the features, so hold on as we continue with the standard Free Spins bonus round. Three, four or five horseshoe bonus scatters in one spin will award 8, 12 and 16 free spins respectively. A number of bonus symbols will be placed on the front reels for the duration of the free spins to make it easier to trigger those features.
An extra four free spins are triggered if the total win from the round is less than 10x your bet. Additional spins will continue to be awarded until the total win exceeds said minimum of 10x.
Prepare for the climax of the reel spectacle, the Frenzy feature. You will need to hit three Golden M scatters in one spin to see the two central reels change into a mini slot machine with different prizes. The game will award the prize landing in the centre of the mini-game.
Well, that was quite a mammoth task. We can only hope it all makes sense and you can proceed to enjoy playing the game. While we love exciting features on our favourite slots, we are not big fans when the sheer amount ends in convoluted gameplay. Prepare to see teaser spin after teaser spin as one of the scatters will land on virtually every spin.
Plus, having that many features means that they will mostly pay poorly as there is only so much RTP to be shared between them. We are certainly looking forward to seeing screenshots with wins exceeding 1,000 times bet, it will be quite a challenge to hit the maximum of 20,000x bet.
