Intro: Game Theme
7 Sins is a video slot game produced by Play’n GO in a busy period when the company was releasing new games almost every month. They broke away from their usual 10-line form and delivered a slot with 243 ways to win and a compelling theme inspired by the seven deadly sins as presented in the Bible. According to the gowns worn by the protagonists in the game (personifications of the sins), the “plot” could be placed sometime during the 17th century. In those times, the folk were very religious and superstitious, afraid of the consequences of their actions.
The seven deadly sins are here presented as gorgeous women: Pride, Greed, Gluttony, Envy, Sloth, Lust and Vanity. These categories defy the seven heavenly virtues, also defined by Christian teachings. The sins aren’t necessarily seen as something inherently evil or immoral, but mainly as abuses or excessive versions of one’s natural faculties or passions. The decadent theme is complimented by foreboding music and the dominant colours are various shades of gold, emerald green and deep red. The reels are certainly filled with temptation, and it’s up to you to step up to the plate.

How it Works
The game uses 5 reels and 3 rows which construct a grid of 243 ways to win. You will be right to assume that these are not standard paylines. Instead, wins are achieved through combining adjacent matching symbols on the reels, at least three of them on a single spin. The wins are formed from left to right. Scatters are the only symbols that can deliver payouts on any positions. Typical customization options such as Autoplay, coin bet options and audio adjustments make the machine more convenient.
Low-value symbols are commonly found within a deck of cards – clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts. The rest of the paytable showcases the seven symbols that represent the seven sins: Pride, Envy, Sloth, Lust, Greed, Gluttony and Vanity. Greed and Lust bring the most credits for a winning combo, whereas Vanity seems to be the least worthwhile out of the seven capital vices. The Lucky 7 only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, but you should also keep your eyes peeled for the Double Lucky 7 Wild which lands on reels 2 and 4. The Pandora’s Box Scatter will pay on any position and unlock freebies, if you’re lucky enough.
One interesting feature about 7 Sins is the possibility of achieving wins with 7 matching symbols across 5 reels, thanks to Double Lucky 7 Wilds. Enviable, isn’t it? If you manage to unleash the power from Pandora’s Box and collect 3 of them, you will receive 7 free spins.
During each free spin, one of the sins symbols will appear as an expanded version on reel 3, they will take turns and appear one at a time. The win multiplier increases 1x to 7x for each consecutive spin during the round. If 2 of the Pandora’s Box Scatters land during freebies the Second Chance feature gets activated. Now, you must choose one of the sins – perhaps the one that is the most tempting for you – and obtain a cash prize. In this picking mini-game, you can win a reward worth 15x the bet. That compensates for the fact that you can’t retrigger free spins from inside the round.
The developer describes 7 Sins slot as a guilty pleasure. You decide for yourself whether you are experiencing it as too tempting or simply to fun to ignore. The variance on this one is very high, so be careful how you spend your balance, but if you get lucky with the multipliers everything should be fine. The RTP is at a reasonable 96% and with 243 ways to win in the base game, the players should feel pretty safe betting real money on this Play’n GO creation.
The concept and the theme are quite original, and we can’t complain about the execution either. The free spins are the best feature in the game, and combined with the Second Chance bonus they really make for a suspenseful time in front of the reels. Ask yourself – are you a sinner?
