Giving a game the title of ‘Always Hot’ is perhaps a brave title to give to a slot game. However, this release from Novomatic does come up with the goods. It’s another one of those games that has a retro-style and that’s something that always puts a smile on my face and not just when the wins come rolling in.
Novomatic do like to bring out these retro games and they really do bring back the memories of the days in amusement arcades, pubs and the local snooker club. It’s part of a series of ‘hot’ games produced by the company.
With the game having a retro feel that means the symbols and look of the game isn’t quite as complex as those you’re probably used to. That didn’t put me off the game one little bit and it has a real charm to it.
This is a three-reel game that is on a 3×3 grid just like all those fruit machines I put my pocket money into down our local fair. All you need to do is get three matching symbols and a win comes your way.
Playing the game is straightforward and there are just the five paylines here. The cost goes from £0.05 to £500. Symbols here again include plenty of fruit. There’s grapes plums, oranges, lemons, watermelons and cherries.If you want to play for free, you can play this or another slot here.
In addition, there’s the lucky 7’s which hopefully will live up to their name and supply you with some good wins. Three of those on an active payline will see you winning 300x your line bet. Also making a comeback is the bells symbol.
The lowest multiplier for a win here is 40x so that’s really the highlight of this game. When you do get a win it’ll really help your account balance.
It’s always a good idea to access the paytable however simple the game may be. This gives you full details of how much each of the winning combinations pay, where the paylines are and details of the gamble feature. That will really improve your knowledge of how the game works and then a few free games can help you see just how the game works.
There’s no wild or scatter symbols here which might disappoint many of you nor are there any free spins available to be won.
However, there is a Gamble feature included in this game. You can try to double or quadruple your base game win here. Just be careful with this and don’t fritter away some good wins. It might be ok if you get a small win and want some icing on the cake (or perhaps cream on top of your fruit) but if you get a really good win, ignore the gamble, take the win and prepare yourself for the next spin.
If you decide to go ahead and gamble then it’s the familiar guess the next card routine. Get the colour right to double a win or go for the suit to quadruple it. This isn’t easy you know, just try it with a pack of cards and see how many times you get it right and wrong.
The only other bonus to mention is that if you can get the same symbol covering all the places on the reels that triples the win.
It’s good to see the old symbols back again. This is a fairly straightforward game to play but it can be rewarding. Be careful with that gamble feature though and don’t let it make you waste some decent wins.
