Hot Slot – Intro
There are many myths about slot machines that have been floating around amongst casino patrons: slot machines that pay out when it’s “cold”, slot machines that are “losened” when it’s first launched so that its players are happy and tell their friends about it, and so on. The most fabled of all: the “hot slot” that pays out more than any other slot machine. Well, Barcrest Gaming is bringing that myth to life! T
heir new slot game, Hot Slot contains an exclusive slot algorithm that pays out 100% of the time. In other words, you can never, ever lose. All you have to do is find it. Your chances ain’t bad either – the “hot slot” is disguised among four other slots, so you’ll pick the right machine one in five times. This game is truly one-of-a-kind and such a thrill to play. Read on to find out more.
About The Slot
There are no free spins or bonus games in this online slot. Instead, there are five basic slot machines – Blue, Purple, Yellow, Green and Red. At the start of the game, you’ll just have to pick one of the five machines presented. Four of them have a return to player rate of 95% while one has a whopping rate of 100%.
All five slot machines run in parallel every time you press spin. However, you can only play on one of them at a time, and take home winnings for your chosen machine. You can swap between the machines at any time until you find the one that you think pays out best, as long as you don’t change your bet level. To change the machine, just click on the machines above the reels. You’re under time pressure to find it though! There’s a countdown meter in the game and when it runs out, the “hot slot” changes and you’ll have to start your search from scratch.
Each slot machine has five reels and 10 paylines. The reels are loaded up with eight standard slot machine symbols such as oranges, cherries, lemons, bells, BAR symbol and the sevens. The fruits are the standard, low-value set – oranges and cherries offer between 10 and 150x. Meanwhile, the purple BAR and blue BAR symbol pays out 40 to 400x in a single spin. The best of the lot is the yellow ‘7’ symbol; if you’re lucky enough to line five of these symbols on a payline, you’ll retire with 2,500x your bet. There are Wild symbols too that substitute any other symbol on the reels to complete a winning payline.
Players with small and large wallets alike would be interested in this cool “hot slot” proposition. The game caters to them both with bets starting at as little as 10p per spin and climbing all the way up to £500 per spin. I’m not sure I could ever place so much in a single bet. I wouldn’t be able to take the suspense! Try and choose a bet level that you’re comfortable playing with for a while. This is because you must maintain your bet level for the entire duration of the countdown meter in order to swap machines. In contrast, other slot games allow you to toggle your bet level anytime you like.
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
All five slot machines in Hot Slot are styled like the classic fruit machine. For some reason, the lemons and cherries never ever go out of style! Slot developers have made many attempts at refreshing the game, by transforming these symbols into sparkly gems, futuristic outlines, animated icons and everything else you could possibly think of. Yet, it’s the one theme that will never ever grow tired. The Hot Slot game interface is really intuitive too. It’s easy to figure out how to choose the slot machine and so on without reading the game manual at all.

Game Features: Reveal the Hot Slot!
You can increase your odds of finding the right machine by playing in Big Bet mode and raising your stakes. If you commit £10 to the game (5 spins at £2 per spin), the game presents three machines instead of five. If you raise your stakes even higher to £3 per spin (£15 total for five spins), the game presents only two machines. That’s a 50% chance of finding the crazy 100%-payout machine! For many players, £3 per spin isn’t even a lot to play with!
If you’re not ready to lay down cash yet, you can try and guess which slot machine is the 100% payback game using the ranking system. At the top of screen, you’ll see the set of reels that are available for you to choose from (2, 3 or 5 reels, depending on how much you wagered).
Each set of reels will be ranked in ascending order – the lower the number, the more payouts the slot has generated since the countdown timer started. Of course, it’s a no-brainer to keep switching to the lowest ranking slot game at any point in time; but you may be losing out on valuable time while waiting for the game to reveal its rank.
There’s a “Reveal the Hot Slot” button if you ever get too frustrated. However, once you click the button, the game resets and a new hot slot will be chosen. I like to press the button just before the countdown meter is going to run out, so I can check whether my guess is right.
Big Bet – Go Big Or Go Home…
In Hot Slot, players who are able/willing to bet more can win more. This “big bet” tactic is not new. Barcrest, the developer is famous for employing this tactic to woo its players. For example, their Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix slot gives out extra features if you are willing to bet slightly more than average. Well, do you agree with it? On one hand, it jacks up the thrill factor ten-fold! The game gets so much more exciting when you have more at stake.
On the flip side of the coin, it’s hard to enjoy the game if you’re tight on budget. Players also have to be very careful with their budget in Hot Slot, as it’s very easy to spend all you have before you even get to the 100%-payout game.. It’s really important to pace yourself so that you can pull out the big bets after you identify the correct slot.
