For lovers of classic slot machines who want the thrill of five reels and a big jackpot win, but still keep the simple spins they love.
Readers beware, if you’ve come to find a Bally video slot with all the bonus features that entails, Hot Shot mobile slot will disappoint. Not because this isn’t a great machine, clearly we thought so because it got all five stars, but because this is only a video slot in name alone.
Yes it has 5 reels and 20 paylines. But thats it. No wilds, no scatters, no free spins.
But there’s still plenty here to love.
Bally games are often better when they have simple graphics, much like the equally brilliant Quick Hit Platinum.
Hot Shot slot game is all bells and bars and sevens. Even the jazzy tune in the background is classic of the sounds you’d find in a Las Vegas casino, late at night. More there to fade into the background than to give any real life feeling for the machine.
The simplicity means that it works especially well as an Android phone slot or an iPhone slot. The smaller screen makes each spin more impressive, especially when the fiery flames shot out during the one bonus feature.
It’s not progressive, but it gives you that sensation that any time now you could win 10,000 times your bet. We write more about it in the sections below, but needless to say, when you get three bonus symbols on the reels, you get three spins on special 3 reel classic slots – each with a different jackpot amount.
This can amount to a simple jackpot of 10x your bet all the way to the magical 10,000.
What’s nice about this bonus feature is that it comes often, and when it does you’ll be glad for it. Sure a top win here is mostly around the 20x your bet mark, but it doesn’t stop your heart from pitter pattering every time you get just one chance at that 10,000 times jackpot win.
It’s what makes this the video slot it truly is. Simple, long-lasting game play, with little thrills every 10 to 20 spins as you hope to finally get that big win.

Slot Game within a Game Feature: Each of the five reels has a special individual Hot Shot slot bonus symbol. And each of these represents a mini classic slot mini game.
When you get three anywhere on the reels, you'll be playing for the jackpot prize that sits within that specific reel.
So reel one has a 10x jackpots, reel two has 50x, reel three 100x, reel four 1,000x and reel five the all coveted 10,000x.
Of course that's not all you can win. As with any mobile slot game, each of these 3 reels mini-games has a host of different symbols with different values - that's just the top amount.
It's fun and always a pleasure to see them show up on the reels.
But fans of simpler slot who want to have a twist on their original game, but not looking to play high risk, would have found their perfect jackpot machine.
An instant classic in our books.
