Hot Fiesta Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Hot Fiesta slot is played on a 5 reel, 3 row, 25 payline machine. Winners are formed in the standard manner for a slot with this format. Land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols or wilds left to right on a payline, starting from reel 1 and you’ll grab yourself a winner.

Stake sizes range from 25p to £125 per spin in standard mode. It goes up to £175 if you have the Ante Bet feature in play. There’s a Turbo Mode as well as Autoplay facility which may not be available in your country (not in the UK from October 2021).

The Hot Fiesta RTP is 96.56% (96.53% with the ante bet). Be warned though, this is a scorching as its name might suggest. I’d put the Hot Fiesta volatility at the maximum 5 out of 5. The most you can win from a single spin here is 5,000 x your total stake.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – party Mexican style

hot-fiesta-slot-base-game

There’s a bright, colourful feel to the design in the Hot Fiesta slot. A Mexican street scene at fiesta time is the setting. You’ll see bright pink and orange apartments and fluttering confetti.

There’s a bouncy and brassy mariachi soundtrack blasting away in the background while you spin which fits the fiesta theme perfectly.  It might not be quite as glossy as some similarly themed slots but the design works just fine.

On the reels are A to 10 royals which appear alongside glasses of tequila, maracas, a guitar, a squeezebox and a senorita. The mariachi musician is the top standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these across a payline and you’ll win an award equal to 2, 6 or 30 x your total stake.

The piñata donkey is the wild. This pays 2, 10 or 40 x your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. As usual, the wild substitutes for all the standard symbols. It can also come with multiplier attached. Rounding out the symbols is the fireworks bonus symbol.

You can join this Mexican party on all devices including mobiles, tablets and computers. The colourful visuals and straightforward gameplay are a good combination for a small screen slot and the Hot Fiesta mobile slot works very well.

Hot Fiesta Bonus Features

The gameplay in Host Fiesta is fairly simple but there are 3 bonus features that can really liven up the action, starting with multiplier wilds. Then there’s a free spins feature where Sticky Roaming Wilds can deliver some explosive action.

Multiplier Wilds feature

The multi-coloured piñata donkey is the game’s wild symbol. This can land on all 5 reels and substitute for all the standard symbols when it makes up part of a winning combination. These piñata donkey wilds can also come with multipliers of 2x, 3x and 5x attached. This is called the Multiplier Wilds feature.

Importantly, land more than 1 multiplier wild on the same spin and the multiplier values are added together to deliver an even bigger payout boost. For example, land 3x and 5x multiplier wilds in the same combination and the payout is boosted by 8x. The maximum multiplier is 25x (five 5x multipliers across a payline).

Free Spins feature

Land the fireworks symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to activate the Free Spins feature. After receiving an award equal to 3x stake, you’ll see a 3×3 grid of piñatas which will explode to reveal how many free spins you’ve been awarded. This can range from between 9 and 27 free spins.

Whenever a wild piñata lands during the free spins, the wild remains in play, shifting to a new position with each new free spin. These multipliers once again come with 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers attached which can combine to award even bigger multiplier payouts.

Ante Bet feature

In some territories, you’ll have the opportunity to increase your stake from 25 to 35 coins per spin and in the process activate the Ante Bet feature. This extra cost per spin doubles the chances of landing the Free Spins feature. For example, a £1 per spin bet in standard mode increases to £1.40 per spin if you have the ante bet active.

Hot Fiesta Review Summary – a Mexican party that is rather tame

The Hot Fiestas slot party is really rather jolly. The colourful design and bouncing soundtrack create a real party atmosphere. The gameplay isn’t especially complicated but the multiplier wilds can really deliver some scorching action, especially if you land a good haul of free spins and the sticky wilds do their stuff.

However, the max win of 5,000 x stake per spin is not exactly a figure that makes Hot Fiesta stand out. If the max payouts would be 3 or 4 times higher, this could have been one street party we wouldn’t want to miss.

Fan of the Mexican theme? Extra Chilli Megaways by Big Time Gaming would be my pick. It offers 20,000 x stake max wins, various classic Megaways features and red-hot action.
