Five-reeler Hot Spin slot, from relatively new developer iSoftBet, features 20 fixed Paylines and pays affectionate tribute to the traditional bricks-and-mortar fruit machine.
The reels look quite small, while the overall design of this game is modern and shiny, plus there’s a jaunty backing track. There’s a simple black background, with red colours at the bottom of your screen.
How to play
Classic fruit symbols feature heavily here, including cherries, plums and lemons, followed in value by melons and bells. You’ll also see stars and the Lucky 7, shelling out at 15x stake.
Of the regular icons, the most lucrative is the diamond, bestowing 25x stake for five on the same Payline.
In standard fashion, scoop wins by landing matching icons on neighbouring reels, kicking off from Reel 1.
Wins payout from left to right, apart from where the bonus symbol is concerned.
The betting range here goes from 0.20 to 20 a pop, so it’s perhaps not aimed at the highest rollers.
Hot Spin Slot Special Features
The Wild in Hot Spin Slot is simply the letter W, paying up to 25x wager. It also fulfils its standard role of replacing all other emblems bar the bonus icon. (This is shown as a multi-coloured wheel featuring the word ‘Bonus.)
Hot Wheel Feature
Bag the bonus on Reels 1, 3 and 5 off a single spin to activate this perk.
The wheel you see at the top of your screen then turns to bestow up to 15 wager-free whirls. At the same time, one of these modifiers will also kick in:
- Random Wilds: Five, seven or 10 additional Wilds are thrown in for every wager-free whirl
- Mystery Symbols: Either six or eight icons turn into the same matching symbol on every freebie
- Wild Reels: Stacked Wild reels come into play, and stay active for the whole feature
- Mega Reel: Either Reels 1 through 3 or 2 through 4 become massive symbols active during the round
- Win Spins: With this nice little perk, you’re guaranteed a win on every free whirl
- In-Sync Reels: Up to three reels sync to whirl the same matching icons on every turn – up to four reels in all can synchronise
Hot Spins Feature
This is the second (and indeed final) feature to mention. It crops up at random, and, when it does, one of the modifier perks mentioned above is bestowed.
While this game doesn’t feature a progressive jackpot, the biggest payout from the symbols is a tidy 500 coins.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player is perfectly respectable here, at 96%. Variance just pushes over into the higher side of medium.
You should find Hot Spin Slot enjoyable, not least because of its fun gameplay, slick visuals and bouncy backing music.
And you’re bound to like it in particular if you’re a fan of refreshed fruit machine games and fancy taking a trip back in time.
It’s admittedly a theme that’s been done often enough before, but you should find it easy to pick up, and there’s very little to get your head around. Equally, a good balance is struck here between simplicity and enjoyment.
