Seven Wonders of the World Slots
Seven Wonders of the World Slots feature two different payout schemes: the conventional one, and its duplicate with no house edge.
The Objective of the Game
The objective is to spin the reels so the symbols form a winning combination on the enabled paylines. The payout is dependent on the winning combination formed.
The Slots’ Arrangement
The 3 reels consist of 26 positions each and have the following layout:
Each reel’s layout is made up of 26 positions, containing the following 7 symbols:
- The Statue of Zeus at Olympia;
- The Great Pyramid of Giza;
- The Lighthouse at Alexandria;
- The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus;
- The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus;
- The Hanging Gardens of Babylon;
- The Colossus of Rhodes.
There is also a “blank” symbol, a space, between each pair of symbols on the reel.
The positions on which the reels stop are determined by a random number generator. Each position is equally likely to be stopped upon. “Seven Wonders of the World” slots’ payout percentage is 98.20%. This means that the house edge is just 1.80%.
The play area displays the slot machine’s three reels. The reels are displayed through a slots window. There are 5 paylines – lines across a slots window where combinations must be formed. You can view a line by moving the cursor over its number located on the left and on the right of the slots window.
The number of credits bet determines the number of enabled paylines. You can bet anywhere from 1 to 5 credits. Once the bet has been made, the slot game starts by spinning the reels.
A winning combination is the appearance of 2 or 3 identical symbols on an enabled payline. The more identical symbols, the greater the win. Unlike the other symbols, the “Statue of Zeus” symbol pays out even when it appears just once on the first reel. Symbols must appear from the left to the right in consecutive order, starting on the first reel.
For example, this combination of “Great Pyramid” symbols is a winning one:

You can read about the exact amount of payouts for various winning combinations in the upper-right corner of the screen. All payout figures show the number of credits that are won for each combination.
Before starting the game, you have to make the bet. You can do it in two ways.
Click on one "BET ONE" button on the bottom panel of the slot machine.
Each time "BET ONE" button clicked, the number of credits bet will increase by one credit. If current bet is five credits and "BET ONE" button clicked, the bet will decrease to one credit.
Or click on one of the payline number located to on the left and on the right of the play area. This number will become the number of credits bet. If, for example, you click on the number 3, three credits will be bet and paylines 1…3 will be enabled.
The reels start spinning when you click either "SPIN" button or handle located on the right of the slot machine.
The bet is indicated right below slots window.
If you want to make the maximum bet – click the "BET MAX" button. This bets maximum credits allowed, enables the maximum paylines allowed, and automatically spins the reels.
If the player wants to spin several times in a row and use the same bet each spin, he should click the "AUTO" button to start autoplay. Autoplay starts as soon as the "AUTO" button is clicked and the button starts blinking to indicate that autoplay is in process. The manual spin mode is restored by pressing the "AUTO" button while it’s blinking.
If the player moves the mouse cursor over this button, he will see a counter appear above it that displays the number of spins that will be made during autoplay. At the beginning of a game session, this number is equal to the maximum possible value – 1000, but it can be changed by clicking the "SET SPINS" button.
Comments on randomness control. If a series of spins is made using randomness control, one of the counter values appears as “RC”. When autoplay is started and RC is selected, all remaining spins in the randomness control series will be played.
At the beginning of the game, 1 credit is equal to 10 cents. The credit’s value can be changed by clicking the "–" or "+" "DENOMINATION" buttons on the bottom panel of slot machine. The first button reduces the value of each credit and the second increases it. Each credit can be worth anywhere from 1 cent to €5.
When there is a winning spin, the payout in credits is shown on the WIN indicator.
The maximum payout for a single spin is limited to €20,000.
