Today, we thought we’d take a look at two popular slots, with names that appear to offer something a little bit naughty, but all-things nice at the same time. Which go by the names of 6 Appeal and 7 Sins – two very different slots with very different themes. But are they both worth checking out and taking a few spins on? Have a browse throughout our overview and see for yourself!
First up, we’ve got 7 Sins – a five-reel slot from the folks at Play ‘N Go with a sinful 243 paylines to play for. This is a brand known for putting out the good stuff and by first impressions alone, they seem to have done it again with this one. 7 Sins is of course based on the seven deadly sins, with spins ranging from 10p to £100 each and full compatibility offered across mobile and desktop platforms alike.
In terms of looks, there’s nothing not to like about the way 7 Sins is put together. The stars of the show are the seven women who represent each of the deadly sins – Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Lust, Envy, Sloth and Vanity. There are also the usual playing card values, alone with the Lucky 7 wild. If you manage to land seven of these wilds in a row on a winning payline, you’re looking at a full 70X your bet.
There’s also a Double Lucky 7 wild, which only appear on reels 2 and 4. It’s good for replacing any symbol apart from the scatter and increases the chance of scoring a seven-strong winning combination.
As with many slots, the most attractive feature with 7 Sins is the Free Spins bonus. You’ll find your way to it by landing at least three scatter symbols, which take the form of Pandora’s Box. Land the symbol on the first, second and third reels to enter the bonus round, or score two scatters in any position to enter the Second Chance feature. In the case of the latter, you play a pick-me game to either get the missing scatter you need or win an instant payout.
The Free Spins feature itself doesn’t disappoint. You start out with a 1X multiplier and each of the 7 Sins takes its turn serving as a sticky expanding wild for the middle reel. What’s more, the multiplier increases with every spin, meaning that your final free spin will pack a full 7X multiplier.
Putting it all together, 7 Sins is a highly entertaining slot from Play ‘N Go that’s easy to get into and offers the chance of big wins. The highest possible payout comes in at 1,580X your bet, which is impressive to say the least. The only slight downside is that it could possibly do with a couple more bonus features, as if you were to take away the Free Spins bonus there would be very little to keep you hooked.
On the whole though, very enjoyable – not quite as sinful as you might expect though!
As for 6 Appeal, the name and the logo might be a little misleading as it’s not the kind of ‘naughty but nice’ slot you’d expect. Instead, it’s all nice with very little naughty to speak of. 6 Appeal is basically a virtual slot take on craps, with a bright and colourful casino theme we really enjoyed. There are five reels and 20 paylines to play for, starting out at 20p and going as high as £30. And if you make your choices in accordance with brands, 6 Appeal comes courtesy of the folks at Realistic Games.
The action takes place at a casino craps table, with symbols featuring a bunch of casino staples and a few playing card symbols thrown in there for good measure. The wild symbol takes the form of the 6 Appeal logo and is by far and wide the game’s most valuable symbol. If you’re lucky enough to hit three, four or five of them on a winning payline, you’ll be walking away with 100, 1,000 or a massive 40,000 coins.
Once again, the most entertaining and appealing feature with 6 Appeal is the Free Spins bonus round. The feature can be accessed by landing the blue dice scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reels at the same time – the score of the ‘dice roll’ determining how many free spins you’ll get. If you land a 4, 2 and 3 for example, the values are multiplied to give you 24 free spins.
You might also land red dice on the second and/or fourth reels when triggering the Free Spins feature – the value of these dice being combined to provide a multiplier that carries throughout the free spins. It’s also possible to retrigger the free spins during play, adding up to the potential for great wins. The multiplier also remains during re-triggered free spins, unless new red dice appear.
Which is where the story comes to an end as far as 6 Appeal is concerned. For the most part, they’ve done a very good job building an online slot that brings a dose of Vegas fun and games right into your living room. But at the same time, with just one bonus feature to play for there’s not a great deal of long-play value. Definitely great for a few spins here and there, but perhaps not enough to keep you coming back for more.
