Realistic Games Boosts Electrocoin Collection With Big 7™
Reading Time: 2 minutes


Leading casino content developer Realistic Games has revamped the Electrocoin classic, BIG  7™, for online audiences, adding another iconic land-based hit to its portfolio.

Based on the extremely popular 3-reel, single line slot, the online adaption recreates the retro style and gameplay of the original, offering the player three different profiles to choose from upon launch which decide the maximum payout of each game.

With a top prize of either x90, x120, or x150 up for grabs, players can win through several sequences. These include ‘Hold on Win’ and ‘Free Spin’, both of which award additional wins.

Each win is added to the ‘Collect Bank’ display and at the end of the game the total is transferred to the player’s balance. For those that miss out, three nudges can be awarded at the end of any losing spin to provide players with more chances of a winning combination.

Big 7™ is the sixth Realistic title based on Electrocoin’s portfolio, joining the remake of the iconic Bar-X™ low-tech game, together with the Game Changer and Pull Tab adaptions.

Robert Lee, Commercial Director at Realistic Games, said: “Big 7™ is a favourite in the land-based world and it’s great to be able to enhance the title’s longevity by making it available to play online.

“Our Electrocoin series is continuing to perform strongly, not only attracting fans of traditional slots but new audiences too. With a similar gameplay to Bar-X™ but with a few added twists, Big 7™ is set to be another big hit with players.”

Gabino Stergides, President of Electrocoin, said: “Realistic have pulled it out of the bag once again with this latest Electrocoin online adaption, proving they were the natural partner with which to collaborate.

“Their attention to detail when recreating the land-based experience for online is what makes games like Big 7™ stand out. We’re delighted with the outcome and look forward to seeing how the release is received.”
