What is this mobile slot about?

You can play on 5 different machines in this Hot Slot mobile slot, but the trick is finding the one that pays out without using the big bet option.

Barcrest have a thing for creating ‘big bet slots’ – namely casino games that have extra features or easier to trigger bonus games if you are willing to bet bigger than average.

Sometimes it works, like in Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix slot, sometimes it fails miserably, like in in the Boulder Bucks game.

Generally, the best type of these slot games are the ones where the big bet options just added a little thrill, rather than become necessary for your enjoyment.

We are happy to say that this Hot Slot machine is exactly that.

Which is the Hot Slot game?

There are no free spins bonuses, scatters, or bonus games in this Hot Slot online.

Instead, the whole concept, though intricate, doesn’t take long to get your head around. You are presented with 5 slot machines, and you get to pick from one.

The aim is to pick the machine which you think will be the ‘Hot Slot’ and has a return to player rate of 100% rather than 95%.

And that’s it. As long as you don’t change your bet size, you can keep changing between the machines, until you think you are playing the one that pays out the best.

You don’t need to play this as a big bet slot

Your odds of picking a mobile slot that gives out 100% return are significantly increased if you are happy to bet either £€$2 or £€$3 a spin.

Reason being, you get less choice of Hot Slots to pick from, only three or two respectively, meaning the odds of finding the one that pays significantly improves.

But even when playing 5 machines, we found that as you can see the results of all the machines, you can easily swap and change to the one you feel is paying out the best.

And if you’re really curious, you can always ‘reveal the Hot Slot’ to see if you were right – of course, then the Hot Slot could now be any other machine.

An extra dimension to playing on a Hot Slot

Just imagine playing in one of your favourite brick and mortar casino, where you have the whole room to yourself and you can swap and change between any machine.

It’s not for everyone, who’d rather not have to think too much (in which case we’d recommend trying out the Motorhead slot instead) but those of us who like a little extra dimension to our gameplay will enjoy an unusual and fun machine.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The 'Wild' symbol is wild and replaces all other symbols on the screen.

The Hot Slot: This Barcrest game gives you 5 slot machines that run parallel to each other every time you press spin.

However, you're not playing all five slot machines at once, you have to pick to play (and win on) one of the five.

Of these five, one has been randomly selected to be the 'Hot Slot' - ie. the one that has a return to player rate of 100% instead of 95%.

You can swap and change between any of the 5 machines, as long as you don't change your bet level. And you can see how the others are paying out, so you can see if one is hotter than the other.

You can, if you wish, reveal the 'Hot Slot' at any time, but then the game resets and a new hot slot will be chosen.

Big Bet Game: Here you can choose to bet more and increase your chances of picking the Hot Slot.

  • £€$10 for 5 spins (or £€£$2 a spin): You only have 3 mobile slot machines to pick from, so you have a one in 3 chances to get the Hot Slot.
  • £€$15 for 5 spins (or £€$3 a spin): You only have 2 slot machines to pick from, so you have a one in 2 chances to get the Hot Slot.

Closing thoughts

With a classic look and feel, this Hot Slot mobile slot might look like a simple classic game, but it adds an extra element by making you chase the machine that pays out perfectly.

Probably better suited to those of us who've been around the online slots block a while, and are looking for something a little different, as newbies will get frustrated when they can't figure out which machines is actually the one paying out.

Just avoid the temptation to 'reveal the hot slot' as they you have to start from scratch again.

If you like the idea of the big bet option, but want something that's a little more interesting to look at, we'd also recommend the Monopoly Big Event slot.
