Fruit machine


Surging 7s is a 6×4 reel slot with 40-paylines and a maximum win of up to x1,850 the player’s wager.




88, 94 per cent


Low value symbols come in the form of cherries, lemons, strawberries, grapes and watermelons. If the right number of matching combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.05 and x0.25 the chosen bet. 

Next up, bells and bars depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.15 and x0.4 the player’s preferred stake. 

High value symbols are represented by fire, ice and lightning number sevens. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x0.75 the player’s wager, depending on the number of winning combinations that land on a single spin. 

Throughout the game, if three or more full reels of identical number seven symbols land on the same spin, they will award multipliers to enhance any potential wins occurring on the same turn.

Three full stacks of sevens can award multipliers between x2 and x4, four stacks can provide between x2 and x5, five stacks provide between x2 and x6 while six stacks can provide multipliers between x2 and x7. 

Additionally, gold armadillo coins can appear on the reel set, triggering the link bonus game mode if four or more fall on the same spin. 

Finally, diamond scatters are available, activating five enhanced free spins when three or more land on the same turn. 


While stacks of lucky sevens award multipliers to enhance the win potential, players can use an ante bet function to increase the multipliers offered by the stacks of sevens. This will increase the player’s bet by 50 per cent without impacting paytable prizes. 

With the ante bet option active, three full seven stacks can provide multipliers between x3 and x6, four stacks provide between x3 and x7, five stacks provide between x3 and x8 and six stacks can offer between x3 and x9. 

In the link bonus game mode, players are taken to an empty reel set where only the triggering armadillo coins are available on the board. Players are then given three spins to land as many additional armadillo coins on the reels as possible. 

Each gold armadillo coin will display multiplied bet amount prizes that range from x1 to x10 the player’s stake, and these prizes will be distributed to the player as the feature finishes. 

Meanwhile, blue, purple and orange armadillo coins can appear to award respective jackpot prizes of x20, x50 or x100 respectively. 

If the board is filled with 24 armadillo coins, players will receive a payout of x1,000 their stake. 


David Stoveld, COO of Armadillo Studios, commented: “After focusing on creating several new concepts we’ve gone back to our roots and developed a nostalgic slot game with a player favourite theme, symbols, features and mechanics and, as passionate slots players ourselves, it’s been a joy to work on. 

“The Armadillo team has delivered stunning visuals and sound effects, and used proven maths to create this slot that we’re confident will delight and engage players with plenty of fun and big win potential along the way.”
