If you live in England, you don’t often get to know what ‘Xtra Hot’ is all about. Thankfully though, this is a Novomatic slot game and not the weather forecast. If you love trying your hand at retro style games that have more fruit in them than my kitchen (I’m more a fish and chips guy to be honest) then ‘Xtra Hot’ is going to be right up your street.
It may be a retro game but this slot still has the more modern five reels. There’s only five pay-lines though which are a fixed amount so you have no option but to play them all on each spin of the reels. The minimum cost of playing this game is just 0.05 and the maximum 100 if playing at 20 a pay-line. Take some time to work out a budget and then continue to enjoy playing the game without causing yourself any financial worries.
The symbols in this game will bring back plenty of memories for those of you who have been playing slots for a long time. They include oranges, plums, cherries, and lemons as well as a 7, an X, bar and a star. It’s the 7 which is the symbol that can bring you most luck in this game. It’s the highest paying symbol and if you can get five of them on one of those five pay-lines then you win 1,000x your stake. The second highest paying symbol is the bar which pays out 200x your stake if five appear on a pay-line. You can even get a win for two matching cherries symbols in this slot which helps to keep your account balance ticking over nicely. That makes this a medium to high volatility slot game, you’ll get a fair few wins but not the big ones, so you need a bit of patience playing ‘Xtra Hot.’
This may be a game that takes a look at how games were in the past but it also includes some modern-day features. However, that surprisingly doesn’t include a wild symbol, so no substituting here. There is a scatter symbol though and that’s the star symbol. It’s on reduced duties though because there is no bonus game for it to trigger. It can produce some wins for you when making appearances anywhere on the reels.
There are good wins to be had when the first three, four or five reels all end up being filled with the same symbols. If you get 15 of a kind on the five reels, that multiplies your pay-out by five, as that is the numbers of reels that are filled with the identical symbols. 12 of a kind on four reels pays out a 4x multiplier, so if that win just happens to be from one of the higher paying symbols in this game, then that’s great news for your account balance.
There may not be a free spins round in ‘Xtra Hot’ but there is a gamble feature. When you get a winning combination, you need to decide whether to keep it or try to double it. It’s the usual task of guessing whether the next card is going to be red or black. That’s the problem as it is all just a guess. Get it right and you double your win but make the wrong choice and you lose your win, so be careful with this.
It’s an easy game to operate but for a change as with many Novomatic slot games, the main control buttons are to the left and right of the reels. The spin and autospin buttons are on the right and just above it a link to a box that allows you to set your stake. When the gamble features pops up, that’s on the left-hand side of the reels. You can check out all the rules to the game in the paytable and have some free games too.
This game also has the Reality Check Interval feature. This appears right at the start of the game and you can set a time for a reminder of how your game is progressing, for example every ten minutes. When that time is reached, the game is suspended and you are shown your statistics and asked if you want to carry on playing or quit, another useful responsible gaming tool.
Love this game? Well if that’s the case, also play a similar slot such as the Playtech slot ‘Purple Hot’ which also offers its players a set of fruit-related symbols with a scatter symbol and gamble feature. Also, have a go on another Novomatic release ‘Inferno’ which again has a retro feel with no free spins but the scatter symbol can get you some good wins.
If you’re looking for a game with a retro feel, then this is going to be perfect for you. It brings back plenty of memories and although the gameplay is basic there are plenty of chances to get some good wins. Be careful with that gamble feature though.
