It’s amazing just how many slot games there are out there which use Egypt as their theme. Well here’s another one and it’s released by Ainsworth who have done a decent job here to create a slot that has a common theme but looks a bit different. With its several bonus features, there are certainly plenty of reasons for giving this game a good go.
This is a five-reel slot game that has a total of 30 pay-lines for you to try and win some cash on. Any game that has an Egyptian theme is almost guaranteed to have an attractive looking backdrop. That’s the case here as we see the Sahara Desert in all its glory. Why so much fuss over a load of sand I don’t know, but it looks pretty enough.
Symbols in this slot are good and bad. The good news is the attractive looking Egyptian themed symbols which include the eye of Horus, a medallion that is probably worth a fortune, a necklace (I wonder if Cleopatra wore it), a bird and a flower. No mummies to report here. The bad news is we get the nine to Ace playing card symbols which is a bit of overkill really. Couldn’t we have had some more theme-related symbols to add to the Egyptian flavour of the game? If you can get five of the bird symbols on a pay-line, that wins you 10x your total stake.
It’s the pyramids that are basking in the hot sun that are the wild symbol in this game. Often getting some wild symbols on a pay-line wins you a prize and often the largest in the game. Not so, here but it is still a very useful symbol to have end up on the reels. It can substitute for all the other symbols apart from the scatter to help get you some wins. However, it doesn’t appear on all of the reels, just the third, fourth and fifth. When it appears on the fifth reel that’s a great reason to celebrate as it can appear fully stacked.
The main feature in this entertaining slot gives you the chance to win some free games. In order to qualify for that you need to get at least three of the scarab beetle scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. There’s always that thrilling moment when two have turned up and you are begging for the third to make an appearance and get you those free spins.
Once the bonus game is triggered, you receive a total of 10 free spins but there’s also a pay-out from those scatter symbols. Three win you 5x your total stake, four get you 20x and five award you 100x so you’re already on a winner. When the free spins start the fifth reel is the one to keep an eye on with fingers crossed. That’s because it has stacked wild symbols and on the second and fourth reels there’s great things happening too. If the wild appears there, then it will expand to fill the entire reel. Lots of chances to get some winning combinations there and if the scarab beetle scatters appear in triplicate, that wins you another five free spins.
This game also contains a sixth reel which is to the right of the five main reels. This can trigger one of the four fixed jackpots that this slot has to offer. If you can get five matching symbols and a crown on the sixth reel, then you are a jackpot winner. This can be either the Mini, Minor, Maxi or Major. It’s all down to which symbol triggers the jackpot and if a wild symbol helped you. You can win up to 333 times your stake this way and it’s possible to achieve this during both the base game and the free spins round.
There’s a fair amount going on in ‘Hotter than Hot’ so make sure you go through the paytable to find out as much as you can about it. That’s packed with information and then have some free games to see just what happens with all the special features that this slot game possesses.
If you enjoy playing this game, try out another Ainsworth release entitled ‘Light ‘Em Up.’ That also has a total of 30 pay-lines, is a low-medium variance slot with a free spins round and also has stacked and expanding wilds. Also, have a play of ‘Eagle Bucks’ (another Ainsworth game) which gives you the chance to play a free spins round and hopefully see expanding wild symbols win you big prizes.
It’s the bonus feature that brings this game to life. The symbols could be better and there are too many of the playing card variety. Trigger the bonus game though and the expanding and stacked wild symbols can get you some big wins. It is a low-medium variance slot, so you will get lots of smaller wins but some big ones eventually. There’s also those jackpots to chase so this is definitely worth playing.
