7 Elements Base Game and Features

7 Elements is a 6 reel slot with 4,096 ways to win. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbols) from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

Seems simple enough, but you’re probably wondering what the 7 Elements Future Powers Feature is?

Future Powers Feature

At the start of 7 Elements, you will begin with a Current Power which can be swapped out at any time for another. In order to swap out your current power, you will need to unlock Future Powers. Future Powers can be unlocked randomly over time.

The next available Future Power can be seen at the far right corner of the screen, with a countdown to when it will eventually become active. Once a Future Power unlocks, it will automatically activate.

Each Future Power can deliver any of the below Modifiers.

  • Cash Prize – A symbol lands with a Cash Prize attached to it, this happens in the base game only.
  • Double Stack – A symbol can land double stacked on the reels, increasing ways to win. This only happens in the base game.
  • Wild Reel – Symbols that land on the Wild Reel will transform into a Wild. This only happens in the base game.
  • Double Pays – Double payouts are awarded for certain symbols. This only happens in the base game.
  • Extra Gems – A symbol lands with an extra gem in Free Spins only.
  • Extra Free Spins – Awards +5 Free Spins.
  • Double Free Spins Multiplier – The win multiplier is Multiplied by x2 in Free Spins.

7 Elements: Our Verdict

7 Elements probably isn’t the best thing we’ve ever seen from 4ThePlayer, but in our eyes, its another shining example of their dedication to be different.

The way in which the game changes over time with different Future Powers feature means that you could potentially be looking at a different game every time you unlock one, and once you’ve unlocked it, its yours to keep. Each of the power ups brings its own unique feature into the game, and the customisation really is appreciated from a player perspective.

It’ll certainly be interesting to see what sort of wins materialise here, and what set-ups were used to achieve them. We honestly couldn’t tell you which we think is the best, because all of the choices really do seem like equally good options.

7 Elements ticks another box in terms of potential. 25,000x is the maximum possible win, and we’re quite confident that 7 Elements could pull it off. Few dare to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to achieving the maximum win cap, but we’ve seen it a few times now with some of 4ThePlayer’s slots, like 90k Yeti.

Overall, 7 Elements may look different, play different and feel different when compared to your conventional slot, but 4ThePlayer are different, and their slots are very easy to understimate, which is a mistake as far as we’re concerned.
