The Pokie Style
If you’ve never seen the original Magnificent 7 movie or the follow up television series, then all you need to know is that it follows the story of seven mercenary cowboys hired to protect a village in Mexico against local looters. As with any good story, they do so successfully and all of the seven major characters feature in the game as some of the most important symbols. The sounds are also authentic and even if you don’t remember it off the top of your head, you’re sure to remember the theme song, which is just as iconic as the group itself! The game also crams in all of the glitz and glamour that befits any Hollywood style game, making for a top class effort from a looks perspective. You certainly won’t miss the cabinet when you head to the casino either, as it is topped off with a lucky wheel and four different progressive jackpots, which we’ll cover in more detail as part of the features and bonuses.
The Magnificent 7 offers both 1c and 2c denominations for play and players can take their pick of either forty or fifty win lines. As is always the case, higher bets make each of the symbols worth even more and various opportunities to line up the symbols means that you’ll never be short of a winning spin.
Features and Bonuses
We’ll cut straight to the chase when it comes to features and bonuses on The Magnificent 7 – you’ll be gunning for the winning wheel at the top of the cabinet as often as possible. It comes into play whenever you land five of a kind on a win line. Not only do you receive the large prize that is awarded anyway for such a combination, but also an opportunity to spin the wheel. The results of that spin can be any of the displayed credit amounts and, more importantly, one of the four different tiers of progressive jackpots that are always on display at the very top of the machine. Wheel spins come along more often than you might think, with numerous spins often possible within the Shootout feature.
That Shootout feature enhances the reels, with a completely wild fifth reel in play and, more importantly, completely free spins. Various enhancements to the reels mean that you’ll be hitting five of a kind with alarming regularity, each offering a spin of the wheel. So frequent are these spins, that the various progressive wins within the round are totalled up rather than being paid immediately, with players receiving their total prize at the end of the round. There’s also the Burning 7s and Sheriff’s Reward features available for even bigger wins, making this one cracker of a poker machine and something that more than lives up to the legacy of The Magnificent 7 themselves.
