Hot KTV is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Playtech. Playable on all devices from 20p to £2,000 per spin, this game is based on the karaoke bars which consist of private rooms. It benefits from a superb free spins feature where you get random multipliers, expanding wilds and a fixed jackpot of 1,000 times your stake.
Visually, it’s set inside a karaoke bar with the reels individually encased in neon lights – symbols on the reels include an assortment of cocktails and 5 girls. There’s a WILD symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and pays out 5,000 coins (or 250 times your stake) for 5 on a payline. It also benefits from quite an upbeat soundtrack.
Hot KTV also benefits from a Super-Hot Expanding Wild feature – if a girl lands on the middle row of any reel and her colour matches the reel frame colour, she becomes wild and expands to take over the whole reel. You can get expanding wilds on all 5 reels – if you do get 5 expanding girls, you will win the KTV Jackpot which is a whopping 1,000 times your total stake (or 20,000 coins)!
There’s also a Hot KTV Free Games feature which is played when you get the Hot KTV logo scatter simultaneously on the 3 middle reels. You then need to pick 1 girl to reveal the number of free spins you’ll play with. Then you get to pick 1 cocktail to reveal your multiplier. I’ve managed to get 18 free spins initially with a hefty 6x multiplier.
The good news is that the Super-Hot Expanding Wild feature applies in the free spins. Landing 3 scatters on the same free spin during the feature will retrigger a random number of free spins with the same multiplier from the initial pick-up session.
Hot KTV is slightly odd in terms of the theme but it has potential to pay out quite well – the expanding wilds will keep things ticking along. The key is to get multiple expanding wilds on a spin. The Hot KTV Free Games feature is quite hard to trigger but can pay dividends if you get a good amount of free spins and high multiplier. If you like expanding wilds, the classic Desert Treasure II (from Playtech) is not to be missed.
