Hot Lucky 7’s Slot Review

When future human beings or aliens dig up our remains, they will wonder in awe at these things we used to call “cassette tapes” and “Beanie Babies” and they might just stick them in a room at the Alien Louvre to gawp at. 👽

Rotary dial telephones are enough to confuse Gen Z people so can you imagine the flurry of speculation that Galactrion and his homies will go through when trying to figure out what we used fake babies stuffed with plastic pellets for? Ha!

It makes my black heart happy to think of it, considering I won’t be around to enjoy hyperdrive and time travel so yeah, take that you Zorblaxians! 👾🛸

This is Hot Lucky 7’s slot from Betsoft Gaming.


Are you feeling nostalgic for those times when you’d have to muscle your way into a brick-and-mortar casino, choking on cigarette fumes so you could try your hand at a one-armed bandit?

Ah, those halcyon days needn’t be behind you – here’s Hot Lucky 7’s slot to bring back that loving feeling. Just light up a cancer stick, I mean a smoke, and you’ll be good to go.

Our game in question is at the top of two converging rows of machines and – as you can imagine – the soundtrack is the overwhelming smorgasbord of clicks and whirs and bells and jabbering people. Good times.

Things look pretty damn funky on a phone held vertically. The slot machine fills the screen and it’s easy to see all the symbols. This is one of the few instances where portrait mode trumps landscape.

Now onto the stats. We’ve got 1,024 ways to win across this 5-reel game. The <strong>RTP is 95.84%</strong>, the <strong>volatility</strong> rate has been set to medium to high, and the <strong>max multiplier</strong> comes in at <strong>10,102x</strong>.

The <strong>top prize</strong> is a stunning <strong>€323,264</strong> – you wouldn’t have thought that by looking at the game. The only currency you can’t play with is the Japanese yen; the rest are all good to go.

Wilds – which you'll see on reels 2 to 4 – substitute for all symbols other than the dollar Scatter. Wilds can have multipliers of 1x to 3x. If more than one multiplier is involved in a win, they’ll be added together. All wins, other than Scatter wins, will be multiplied.



It takes 3 or more dollar Scatters to trigger the Free Spins round, and the number you land will determine how many spins you get:
<li>3 Scatters award 8 spins</li>
<li>4 Scatters award 12 spins</li>
<li>5 Scatters award 20 spins</li>
Wild multipliers are boosted to 2x, 3x, or 5x during this round. And lastly, Free Spins can be re-triggered during the Free Spins feature.

As for how many spins you have left, you’ll need to look at the teeny tiny black element overlaid on the SPIN button that says “F” and shows a number. Not ideal, but it’s still visible; even on a phone with a small screen.


This option is all about getting into Free Spins without waiting for it. Because your time is precious, after all. The cost breakdown is as follows:
<li>8 spins will cost you 35.60x</li>
<li>12 spins will cost you 53.60x</li>
<li>20 spins will cost you 89.20x</li>


I had no issues while testing Hot Lucky 7’s slot. I played it on all my devices and swapped between Safari and Chrome, and it was all good.

Maximum Win

Now this is what dreams were made of back when players sat for hours at obnoxiously loud machines and shoved coins into slots.

I’m talking about a max win of €323,264 that comes about when you land the sizzling 10,102x max multiplier – nothing wrong with that, eh?

The betting range on this game is also sweet – at €0.10 to €32 – which means you don’t have to pony up a fortune if you want to chase down the big bucks.


I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – there’s nothing wrong with simplicity. Especially when that could mean you walk away with €323,264 stuffing your wallet.

That said, Hot Lucky 7’s slot won’t appeal to all players. It’s not my kinda aesthetic, for example, even though I’d happily play another game that offered only Free Spins and similarly stupendous stats. It’s not you Hot Lucky 7’s slot; it’s me.

What I do like, though, is that there’s a Buy Bonus. It’s not something that’s always included in these retro, simple games but it does make a big difference. And the cost here isn’t nearly as rough as you’ll see elsewhere, and you’ll get more spins than on some other Buy Bonuses.

So what I’m trying to say is this game won’t have mass appeal, but it is solid and worth a squirt; no question about it.
