Power Spins – Sonic 7s Slots

Power-Spins-Sonic-7sSonic 7s is a Microgaming slot machine, one of the three Power Spins titles. Each slot from the series has a similar design, though using different colors. In this case, there is a lot of focus on the blue color. The games also have a Power Spin option, which gets activated when an additional wager is placed each round. Each slot offers something different when this extra bet is used, and in the case of Sonic 7s that means having access to big multipliers when the wilds get involved. More on that below.

This 5 reel slot from Microgaming offers 9 paylines, an identical number to the ones from the other games of the series. Wilds, scatters and multipliers are part of it, the last ones being brought on with the help of the power spins. The biggest reward waiting for you inside is worth $50,000.

Features of Power Spins – Sonic 7s

The game’s Power Spins will bring you big multipliers for the wilds, but you have these symbols even without the extra bet. The other major symbol is the scatter.

While in the base game, you can take advantage of a regular wild symbol, which will offer you its own prizes, and it will try and help you by acting as a substitute as well. When its own combinations are formed, with up to five wilds together on the same line, it can be a very generous feature, offering up to 20,000x the line bet (up to 100,000 coins can be won). The Sonic Logo is the image used for it.


The scatter symbol is another important feature in Sonic 7s. The presence of two or more symbols with a scatter ability will be sufficient to trigger a prize. The prize gets better with each additional scatter, so while the minimum of two will only bring you 2x the triggering bet, the maximum of five will award 300x.

Power Spins

In order to be able to take advantage of the Power Spins, you have to wager extra, but it’s not a huge amount. You already bet on 9 lines for the base game, and you add a bet for the equivalent of 3 lines to trigger Power Spins as well.

The feature brought by the Power Spins is a multiplier that now applies whenever the wild symbol contributes to a new combo. You get a 2x multiplier for each wild that is part of the combo, and you can combine them when there are multiple wilds on a payline. Up to 8x the usual prize can be won this way, when up to four wilds are part of the same combo.

Betting options and jackpots

The slot is cheaper to play than the other two, allowing for up to 5 coins of $0.50 to be used per line, which means up to $2.50. With 9 lines that can be activated, that brings the total bet to $22.50, or up to $30 when the Power Spin option is used.

The slot is very generous when you consider the wagers that are being placed. Up to 100,000 coins can be won, with their value being at $50,000 or less.

Design and symbols

In the case of the Sonic 7s title, the design uses a lot of blue, while much of the graphics have remained similar to the other two slots. You get the classic symbols and the ones that are based on 7s in different colors, you have the logos and they all appear on black reels. The sonic theme means a lot of blue apparently, an all black background image and some kind of electrical devices that look like they belong in a mad scientist’s lab.


Symbols: Sonic Logo (20,000x, wild), Generator (scatter, 300x triggering wager), Blue 7 (2,000x), Red 7 (1,000x), Gray 7 (750x), Three Bar (300x), Two Bar (200x), One Bar (100x), Bell (50x) and Cherries (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s the game which has the biggest payouts to offer, at least when you consider the bets that you’re making, but the Power Spins seem to be the least valuable of the three. If you believe in your luck, try it out, it’s the best bang for the buck. The other two are better in the long run.

This Power Spins – Sonic 7s slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
