Bar-X Magic 7 Slots

Bar-X-Magic-7Released by IGT, Bar-X Magic 7 is a slot machine with a classic layout, but with some interesting features and a theme which is inspired by the game known by many as Tic Tac Toe. It features only a limited number of symbols, so it should be easier to get paid while you play it, but the payouts are not that high as a result. It’s one of a few such slot machines which come from IGT, all of them with the same Bar-X in their name.

Though both its layout (3 reels/1 line) and its symbols are classics, the game is not quite regular, offering a different design and features which give you Hold and Nudge options. The top payouts will offer you $187.50.

Features of Bar-X Magic 7

The unusual part about this slot machine is the use of features, which are rare choices even for modern titles. I’m talking about the Nudges and Hold options which are part of the feature list.

The Hold option lets you pick which reels you want to keep locked in place for the next spin. That particular reel(s), with the symbols that you want to keep locked, will stay there, while the others will spin once. Hopefully, the spinning reels will provide you with the missing symbols and you will get a paying combination out of it. It can be very useful, giving you one extra chance to form a combo, and you should take advantage of it if you have two of the required symbols already in place.

The Nudge option can be useful as well, as it will move the reels by one position up or down, as needed to get a symbol on the payline. It will do this when this nudge brings you a symbol which you need to form a combination.

Betting options and jackpots

The game has only one line, so you simply decide on the stake you want to use, and that amount will be wagered for each spin. You can get as low as $0.01, or as high as $3.75.

There are three symbols which offer payouts in this game, and the best one comes from the Magic 7 icon, which offers you 50x the bet, or $187.50.

Design and symbols

While there isn’t anything impressive about the design of Bar-X Magic 7, it does give you a better look than you’d generally expect from a classic slot machine. The reels are in the middle, with borders colored in yellow and red, and their symbols are colorful enough as well, so you don’t get simple white reels like in other titles. The symbols are of three types, 7s, Bar and X.

Symbols: Magic 7 (50 coins), Bar (20 coins) and X (10 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The one thing to like about it is the low number of symbols, which along with the Nudge and Hold options should help you get paid often. It should make up for the low top payouts.

You will find Bar-X Magic 7 at any online casino which chooses to use software from IGT, playable either for free or for real money.
