Hot Spin is a glossy looking fruit machine reboot from iSoftBet. The highlight of this 5 reel, 20 payline game is undoubtedly the feature round. Spin the bonus wheel to receive free spins with 1 of 6 modifier extras in play throughout. Stakes range from between 20p and £20 per spin.
There’s a shiny, modern look to the design in Hot Spin. The reels themselves are rather small. On them you’ll see cherries, lemons and plums which pay up to 2.5 times stake per payline, followed by melons and bells which pay up to 5 and 10 times stake respectively. Next come the star and lucky 7 which award up to 15 times stake.
The best paying standard symbol is the diamond which pays 25 times stake if you land 5 on a payline. The W is the game’s wild. It too offers awards of up to 25 times stake as well as substituting for all other symbols apart from the Bonus.
Land the Bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Hot Wheel feature – the wheel above the reels will then spin and award between 1 and 15 free spins. You’ll also receive 1 of the following modifier extras which will be in play throughout those free spins:
- Mystery Symbols – 6 or 8 symbols will transform into the same matching mystery symbol on each free spin.
- Random Wilds – 5, 7 or 10 extra wilds will be added to the reels on each free spin.
- Wilds Reels – stacked wild reels are added and will remain in play throughout the round.
- Win Spins – each of your free spins is guaranteed to deliver a winner.
- Mega Reel – either reels 1, 2 and 3 or reels 2, 3 and 4 will feature colossal symbols throughout the Hot Spins.
- In Sync Reels – up to 5 reels can sync and spin with the same symbol showing on each of them.
A single Hot Spin can also hit at random in the base game and award 1 of the modifier extras above.
We enjoyed Hot Spin. The slick visuals and bouncy backing track are well done but the main attraction here is the Hot Wheels feature. It’s not the easiest to trigger but the modifier extras can quickly deliver if you get a healthy number of free spins.
If you’re a fan of classic fruit machines that have been given a fresh lick of paint, then Hot Spin is definitely one to add to the list. If you want a good themed slot, Legend of Loki by iSoftBet is recommended.
