Here’s a slot game from Novomatic that wouldn’t have looked out of place if it was in an amusement arcade about 20 or 30 years ago. It used to be impossible not to see a slot game that had fruit all over the reels and that’s the case in the Sizzling Hot slot game. There are still plenty of good chances of getting winning combinations on its five pay-lines so it’s definitely worth having a play.
‘Sizzling Hot’ has a basic look to it with its title above the five reels and three rows of very fruity symbols on a purple background. It certainly brings back plenty of memoires of the times spent in amusement arcades while on holiday and waiting for it to stop raining. Mind you, I was happier in those arcades than sat on the beach doing nothing.
Before playing this with real cash, try out the free Sizzling Hot slot. This game has five pay-lines and they are a fixed amount so that’s how many you will be playing on each spin of the reels. You do need to set your stake which is easily achieved using the control buttons underneath the reels. The minimum cost of playing this slot is just 0.05 and the maximum a total of 75 which is fine if you are a high roller. Ensure that you play at a level that you feel entirely comfortable with.
The symbols are the usual suspects of oranges, lemons, cherries, plums, grapes, and watermelons so nothing new. The last two on that list pay out 500x for five on a pay-line. We also get the lucky 7 and a star and five of the 7s on a pay-line will reward you with a multiplier of 5000x so there are definitely some good wins to be had in this game.
If you are looking for some free spins round in the Sizzling Hot video slot or perhaps some other form of game feature, you’re going to be a bit disappointed. There’s none of that in this game so ‘Sizzling Hot’ is mainly about spinning the reels and hoping for the best. It’s ideal if it’s only recent that you have started playing slot games. Try your luck on this straightforward slot game and then move onto the more complex games.
There isn’t a wild symbol in this game so no sign of any substituting here so it’s a bit harder to get winning combinations. There is a scatter symbol which is the star but it’s on reduced duties here. No free spins round to trigger so all it can do is reward you with some real cash when a certain number of the scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin. Five of them will pay you 50x your total bet so keep an eye out for them.
There may be a distinct absence of any free spins in this slot but there is a gamble feature. Two things happen when you get a winning combination, firstly the winning symbols catch fire and then it’s time to decide whether to play the gamble feature. It’s not compulsory and the gambler can just move onto the next spin. If opting for the gamble it’s simply a case of correctly guessing the colour of the next card. A correct choice (five available) doubles your win, a wrong guess means all is lost so be wary of this.
This isn’t a complicated game at all but a little bit of homework before playing for real money is a good idea. There’s not much work to be done, simply have some free Sizzling Hot slot games to see those symbols burning and how the gamble feature works. Then have a look through the paytable as that’s packed with information such as how much the winning combinations pay out.
Playing this slot game at an online casino is highly entertaining so you will be keen to play other games that have similar gameplay. There’s another Novomatic release entitled ‘Mystery Star’ that also offers players a gamble feature in the absence of a free spins round. It also has a star symbol that plays a key role in the game. Also try your luck on the real money online slots game ‘Fruits ‘n Sevens’ also from Novomatic as that also has five pay-lines with no wild symbol or free spins round but the chance to double wins in the gamble feature.
A fairly basic game that will have older players remembering the classic slots they played in the past. No free spins or other bonus round will disappoint some players but you can still get a great deal of enjoyment from playing this game. There are some good wins to be had and the burning symbols are an added attraction. Be careful with the gamble feature and enjoy playing this slot.
