Game Facts and Rules

Classic game
 A sizzling hot machine is a simplest and friendliest game ever. There are a simple set of well-defined rules, since the first release. All the action with fruits and 777's take place on 5 reels, 3 rows, and 5 lines. At any given time 15 win symbols are present on the screen. These win symbols are cherries, stars, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes, watermelon and of course the red sevens. Before spinning the reels the player must set the bet. In the sizzling hot slot, each line has a bet value that adds up to the total bet. The player can then spin the reels and see the result. From this point onward we refer to this as a spin round.

A win happens when the player manages to collect two (only in case of cherries) or three winning symbols from the leftmost reel. The win is announced by a very win specific alerting sound. All winning combinations are then highlighted and appear on fire or sizzling hot. This process is usually referred to as the winning phase.

The double-up or risk game can be manually activated by the player after any and every win. Also known as the gamble feature, lets the player double the won amount at a 50-50 rate. The user must guess the color of the face-down card, red or black. Guessed right the winnings of the respective spin round are doubled and the gamble feature can be repeated. Failing to guess right stops the features and voids any wins including the one in the spin round.
