Here are the main elements of 7’s On Fire Live. Sorry, It’s quite lengthy, as the game setup is a bit complicated.
In summary, you place bets on the Slot symbols and the Roulette betting grid. You win when more than one slot symbol comes in and if you have an active bet on the number where the roulette ball lands. You can bet on either part of the game; the choice is yours. The relative RTPs are shown below.
In this section, I’ll explain how to play both parts of the game.
The sequence of the game is as follows:
Now, let’s look at the parts of the playing interface.
There are two sections to the betting grid. The left side has the traditional roulette-style betting grid, but note it’s only for straight-up bets. You can’t place any other type of roulette bet.
The right side of the interface contains the betting grid for the eight Slot Symbols.
You can place your chips on both or either one.
There are eight familiar-looking Slot symbols, Star, Bell, Melon, Plum, Orange, Cheery, Lemon and 777’s. Each symbol has a paytable; you can see the payout range on the grid during betting time. Otherwise, check out the payables below.
The value of the payout is determined by the number of symbols chosen during the slot round. Generally, two symbols of the same type are required for a win.
The 777 is an exception when only one of the symbols is required. There are two types of 777 symbols, the Blue ones and the higher-paying Gold ones.
There’s a handy option in the playing interface that will place a bet on all symbols with the press of a button.
Payouts for Slot wins can be further boosted in two ways:
The only roulette bet offered is a Straight-Up bet, which pays 12:1, miles off from the 35:1 you get when playing European Roulette.
If you fancy playing that way, a “Bet All” option in the playing interface places a bet on all thirty-seven numbers.
Six Numbers are selected each game round to have multipliers. The selection process occurs during the Slot round, where each symbol in the result is given a multiplier and a number.
The Symbols are superimposed over the six selected numbers on the betting grid.
The Roulette ball determines the result by the numbered pocket the ball lands in.
The payout will be 12:1 unless the winning number has a multiplier attached to it, in which case the payout is the value of the multiplier.
Note: The Bonus Round may randomly trigger after the result is known and before payouts occur. The bonus is a multiplier, which is applied to all winning payouts.
There is a standard set of payouts for each bet and result. You can see the specific details in the table.
The payouts can be enhanced through multipliers, which are triggered in several ways.
In the Slot Round, all winning payouts can receive a multiplier of 3x if the result from the Roulette round has a Symbol. You don’t even have to have placed a bet on the number to benefit from this.
The payouts for Roulette are boosted by the multipliers assigned to individual numbers during the slot round. All wins can be further boosted when the random Bonus round triggers. In this instance, a random multiplier of either 2x, 3x, 4x or 7x is applied to all wins. The RTP for the roulette round is 98.00%, while the slot rounds’ RTPs sit between 97.14% to 97.23%.
|Symbol||No of Symbols||Base Payout||Enhanced Payout||Symbol Number Multiplier||RTP|
|Lemon / Orange / Plumb / Cherry||2 Symbols||1x||3x||50x||97.14%|
|5 & 6 Symbols||140x||420x|
|5 & 6 Symbols||380x||1140x|
|Star / Bell||2 Symbols||6x||18x||300x||97.22%|
|4, 5 & 6 Symbols||500x||1500x|
Up to the last 500 results can be viewed in the playing interface. You’ve got the choice of filtering the results between the previous 50, 100 and 300 or opt to view the total 500.
You’ll see the last roulette number won and whether it had an associated symbol.
Unfortunately, there is no history on the multipliers or any information on the results of the slots rounds and payouts.
The Slots round is a crucial game component, so it’s unfortunate to see it ignored.
Although 7’s on Fire Live is a dumbed-down version of Roulette, the same roulette principles apply if you place Stratight-up bets. So it helps if you know the numbers that makeup sections of the wheel. Unfortunately, Authentic has stripped away all this information from the playing interface, so if you like playing section or neighbour bets, you will need to reference a European Roulette game for the info.
My strategies for the Roulette game would not include betting on all numbers – the potential multipliers don’t make it worthwhile, and the 12:1 payout for a standard win will decimate your bankroll if you don’t get multipliers every other spin.
My tip is to bet on sections of the wheel or a range of favourite numbers. Don’t bet more than 12 numbers; that is the cutoff limit for breaking even when you win.
I recommend betting on a selection for the Slot part of the game. The most common wins come from the lower-paying symbols of Lemon / Orange / Plumb and Cherry. Pick just two of these. Then pick all the other symbols. The symbols payouts benefit from the Number win boost multiplier of 3x if there is a symbol on the number, so there is more scope for wins in this part of the game.
The slot game is a lower volatile part of the game, so it will keep your bankroll turning over. The multipliers on wins are decent when they happen, but don’t expect them that often. On average, there are three 1000x + payouts a day. It will likely come from the extra boosted payouts rather than getting 5 or 6 of a kind in the slot round.
The roulette part of the game is more volatile, and while similar to Lightning Roulette in the way the multipliers are used, don’t be fooled into thinking it’s the same.
The standard payout is far worse, and you don’t get all the RTP back in the roulette round; it’s spread across the whole game.
So when choosing which part of the game to play, I’d say either play both or, if you’re going to play one, stick to the Slot game, even if the RTP tells you otherwise.
Firstly I’d like to say hats off to Authentic Gaming for producing a live dealer game that is different from other games in this genre.
My big question is, does it work, did I enjoy playing it, and would I recommend it to other players?
I found 7s On Fire Live challenging to understand. There are two parts to the game, and there are multipliers. But as I was playing, It wasn’t immediately apparent how all of the elements of the game were linked. Using the help files and the data sheets I was given helped a bit, but there is a lack of clarity about the multiplier values and what to expect from the bonus round. Maybe I’m a bit stupid, but it took me a while to figure it all out. So, that’s a black mark.
I enjoyed the Slot part of the game more than the Roulette bit. As you know, I’m not a slot player, so for me to say that says something.
I understand why all the extra bets from roulette have been removed, leaving just the straight-up bets, and I know why the payouts are low to fund the multipliers across the two parts of the game.
Those changes I can live with, but to remove the statistics and information you need to be able to place sections or neighbour bets baffles me. I enjoy that part of roulette, trying to hedge my bets by covering sections of the wheel. I can, of course, still do that, but it relies on me remembering the number sequences to place those bets.
The lack of statistics also baffles me, as Roulette players like to see what’s going on with the roulette wheel, so not having that information means people will be playing blind – or, more likely, they won’t play.
I’d like to see at least the multipliers shown for the wins, and it would be nice to see which numbers received the multipliers and the results of the slot game. These are all integral parts of the game, so if you’re making a game like this should, in my opinion, be included. Don’t do half a job.
The presentation in the studio is excellent. The colour scheme is great, and the presenters are enthusiastic.
I wouldn’t recommend the game in its current format, it feels too complicated, and the playing interface is incomplete. It’s as though the desigeers have tried to keep the game simple, but while doing so, they have taken the essence of roulette away. The multiplier selection process is unique, but it’s not that intuitive when you first see it, so you’re not immediately drawn to play the game more.
If you’ve got a taste for multiplier roulette games or hybrid games, here are a few you might like to try out.
7’s On Fire Live is a live dealer game show that fuses Roulette with an online slot that delivers regular multiplier payouts.
The top payout is 1500x on the slot, while the largest multiplier on Roulette is 777x. These sums can become bigger when the bonus round occurs.
You can play 7’s On Fire Live at any Authentic Live Casino. My current recommendation is PlayOjo.
7’s On Fire Live is easy to play once you understand the game rules and how the parts of the game link. It’s possible to play the game in several ways, depending on your appetite for risk and reward.
The RTP for the roulette round is 98.00%, while the slot games RTP sits between 97.14% to 97.23%.
Most casinos with Authentic Live Dealer Games have the game.
