Get ready for a bit of old-school fun with the Burning Hot slot by EGT interactive. The game feels like it has been ripped straight from a casino floor, with retro visuals and sound effects fully immersing you. The slot is not one that is concerned with special features and bonus rounds, this just wants you to have some good old-fashioned fun and hopefully secure yourself some winnings along the way. Let’s take a more detailed look at the slot in this review.
Burning Hot video slot is designed for those who love old-school games. To get started with the slot, you simply need to click on the number of coins you want to wager and the spin will start. There is no adjusting your stake as you would on a more modern slot, so be careful when you click on the amount because it also doubles up as the spin button. The minimum amount that can be wagered is five credits, while the maximum is 100.
You can also set the game up to take unlimited spins for you using the autospin feature. This can be found underneath the reels and players need to just click on the button to stop and start it. You can also access all of the information that you need by clicking on the ‘i’ button. There are only five paylines in the game, with each of them paying left to right. The setup of the game is the fairly standard 5x3. If you want to try before you buy, then give our free demo version a spin at GoodLuckMate.
All of the symbols in the Burning Hot slot are based on old-school fruit machines. It is the payouts on offer that really makes Burning Hot stand out. The highest amount is a whopping 600x your stake for five of the number seven symbol. This will also pay out 40x your stake for four, 10x for 3, and 2x for two. This is the only symbol that pays out for a combination of two.
Next up are the grapes and watermelon. All of these payout 100x your stake for a combination of five. The dollar symbol is the game scatters. It pays 500x the stake for five of a kind wins. Next is the bell, which pays out 40x your stake for five. Finally, there are four different symbols – cherries, lemons, plums, and oranges, all of which pay out 20x for five, 6x for four, and 2x for three. All of the payouts in this game are fairly generous, though they can be tricky to land due to the smaller number of pay lines.
With it being an old-school slot feature, there are very few Burning Hot bonus rounds available. The biggest selling point here is the mystery jackpot system. Above the reels, you will see four totals that are continuously adding up. To be in with a chance of winning one of these, you will need to trigger the jackpot bonus round, which can happen any time at random following a spin. You will then be taken to a pick-me game where you have to turn over three cards from a pile of 12 in order to win the corresponding jackpot.
Sadly, there is no Burning Hot free spins bonus to take advantage of here, but there is a gamble feature that is triggered every time you score a win above 175 credits. This is the standard gamble feature you can find in a lot of slots which sees players choose what color or face they think will be on a face-down card.
The Burning Hot RTP is not recorded by EGT Interactive. The developer has listed the slot’s volatility as two out of five, which suggests low-medium. When playing the slot ourselves we did find that we were able to secure smaller wins fairly often, though, triggering the jackpot bonus took a very long time.
