Have you ever wanted to experience the rush of the classic slot games from years back? Well Wicked 777 aims to bring you that excitement and entertainment in a stylised and funky way.
Heavily inspired by the original fruit slots, Skywind Group has created this slot as almost a tribute and a nod to the one that came before.
Possibly fuelled by nostalgia, this title does a great job to recreate the fun and excitement of the original while still keeping new and fresh.
Let’s take a look at how well Skywind did in recreating this classic.
Theme and Symbols
You’ve probably already got a pretty good idea of what this video slot looks like in your head, but just in case you don’t we’ll get you up to speed.
The backdrop of the game is pretty basic, only sporting a single solid dark blue colour for the reels. The artwork on the symbols is great, keeping as true to the originals as possible while still looking new and interesting.
There are some nice little animations on winning spins which makes the game feel more alive.
There’s a pretty funky tune that plays while in the info screen which is nice and uplifting. The sound effects are relaxed and don’t draw away from your game.
Overall, the game is neatly presented, keeps its unique style while still feeling fresh.
The symbols are exactly what you would expect from a reboot of the classic. Fruits are everywhere with the elusive 777 hiding in the reels.
There is a Scatter Symbol in the game which is represented by a bright yellow star.
The 777 is representative of the Wild Symbol and can substitute for any other symbol in the game except for the Scatter.
There’s even a Mystery Symbol in the game that has taken the form of a golden wicked sign that may reveal one symbol except for the Scatter.
The other icons to look out for are the classic grapes, watermelon, lemons, oranges, cherries and plums.
Betting Options and Features
The game is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot boasting a crazy 100 paylines and an enticing RTP of 96.3%. Players are able to vary their bets per spin in multiple denominations.
Gamble Feature – Present in this title is a gamble feature that allows players the chance to win double their bet. There is a button that players can press on winning spins which takes them to the gamble screen. Once there they’ll be prompted to choose either red or black and if they choose correctly they’ll win double that spin! This feature is limited to 5 consecutive wins in any one game.
Wicked Stacks – The game likes to stack icons in a reel making wins happen quite often.
Bonus Spins – Should 3 or more scatters make an appearance will trigger bonus spins where the Mystery Symbols make an entrance.
In all, Skywind Group has done a pretty good job with this recreation of a classic. Wicked 777 is an enjoyable experience that sticks pretty close to the original while still being able to be itself.
