Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leading casino content developer Realistic Games has made the classic land-based game Bar-X™ 7even available to online players for the first time as part of its successful Electrocoin partnership.

In a sequel to the famous Bar-X™ slot machine, the online version is a carbon copy of the land based original, complete with the same highly volatile mechanics, timings and sounds that made it a timeless hit.

Set in Realistic’s signature cabinet for an authentic land-based feel, players win through several sequences, including by way of ‘Hold on Win’, the ‘Hold Pair Feature’ and when two or nine ‘Guaranteed Wins Free Spins’ are offered at random after a straight-in win.

In addition, the ‘O’ symbol is removed in the title and replaced by a 7 symbol to guarantee a win on all nudges, giving players more chances to claim the maximum prize of 1,000x their bet.

The release of Bar-X™ 7even brings the total of Realistic’s Electrocoin remakes up to ten, with the collection of iconic titles such as Bar-X™ and Super Bar-X™ having already been a standout success with online players.

Robert Lee, Commercial Director at Realistic Games, said: “Bar-X™ 7even completes a fantastic collection of games that have become staples of our portfolio over the last six months, achieving a stickiness that is often hard to gain.

“The level of retention we’ve experienced is testament to the reputation of Electrocoin’s slots and also the talent of our studio. It’s a joy to see players able to continue to enjoy Bar-X™ 7even in the online world and I’m sure they will for a long time to come.”

Gabino Stergides, President of Electrocoin, said: “Bar-X™ 7even turned the volatility and payout potential up a notch when it was first released, making it a game that packs a real punch for those looking for a more intense experience.

“Realistic’s online version captures this high level of excitement and we’re expecting the game to continue the success of the portfolio with players across all verticals.”
