SLOT FOCUS
Sevens & Suns by Indigo Magic - a classic-style slot with cosmic wins






Some days you wake up early and the clock strikes seven, but you look through the window to see the sun rising above the horizon and you just know it's going to be a good day. Then you log into your favorite game lobby, see Sevens & Suns among the featured games, and you realize this is the sign from above you've been waiting for. You fire up the game, give it a few spins and before you know it, you've landed some pretty uplifting wins! Sometimes it all comes together, just like in Seven & Suns by Indigo Magic from Bragg Studios, the newest game by this accomplished slot studio. With its simplicity in game design and art, the title pays homage to the traditional slots we all love and appreciate, but under the hood, a very modern high-performance engine roars to make this title a muscle car among slot games.



Features and Mechanics

This explosive new release employs traditional slot aesthetics by featuring the evergreen sevens and fiery wild sevens, alongside well-established fruit symbols so pretty you could just bite into them. This makes the most evident game elements instantly recognizable and streamlines the player experience by presenting the players with symbols they are already familiar with. The only exception is the sun scatter symbol from the title, but even that one isn't that unusual as sphere-shaped symbols such as orbs are also pretty common in many slot games. This helps new players jump right into the game since the learning curve is significantly flattened this way and you already feel you can ace this game in no time. Another familiar and reliable design aspect is the game's standard 5x3 layout, but again, with one slight exception: the spinning multiplier dial above the reels. This dial features random multipliers of up to 100x and spins every time you spin the reels. Whenever a fiery wild seven lands on the reels, you win the multiplier above it as well - and if you land two or more of them, all these multipliers add up to further boost your wild-induced win!



The other prominent thrill-giver in this game is the free games feature. You start it by landing three or more sun scatters and you can win more free games in this phase by simply landing more scatters. The feature works best in combination with the side bet option. If you activate it, your bets will cost an additional 20%, but when you start the free games with the side bet on, it guarantees a wild on each spin! What's more, this option also removes the two lowest multipliers from the spinning reels, giving you this way a better chance of landing those higher and more desirable multipliers.

The overall impression of the game is overwhelmingly positive and we can't find a single thing to judge as bad or even mediocre. The visual effects are a delight, especially the background with finely animated flames and the exquisitely designed fiery wild sevens. With burning suns, fiery sevens, a blazing background and golden yellow frames, the game feels so warm and inviting that it can't leave anyone cold. There are many amusing sound effects that nicely fit the game and never feel out of place. The musical score consists of a jazzed-up funky theme that feels like taken straight from the 70s and makes you move and groove without ever sounding repetitive or bland. Perceptive players will not overlook a slight retro feel in all game elements, but the game skillfully balances classic and modern aspects of its design and plays to the strengths of both.

Our final verdict

Despite a growing number of game releases each year, it's not getting any easier to find a good slot without all the bells and whistles developers ornate their games with to attract the players and keep them interested. Veteran slotsters will surely agree that it's not an abundance of features or elaborate settings and fancy backstories that enthrall and engage them, and experienced players know how to appreciate a simple but efficient game that is able to deliver those special thrills that are unique to slot gaming. Sevens & Suns delivers them in great quantities thanks to simple, smart and efficient mechanics that keep the game fresh and exciting. It is a pleasure to look at and a joy to spin, especially because its clever design allows for significant multiplier buildup and consequently insanely high payouts. Games with this much potential are few and far between which sometimes makes them hard to find. Not this one, though: it shines with the power of a thousand suns and should definitely make the grade with any operator and in any ambitious game portfolio. The Indigo Magic studio seems to be doing something right and, in this case, living up to its name by delivering pure and precious moments of immaculate slot game magic.
