Made to be played on the smaller Android and iPhone screen, this Hot Spin mobile slot is easy to pick up, but also easy to put down.
Most slots online tend to make their way on mobile almost instantly, but some slots are clearly made for mobile first. Not just mobile, but we’d say that this Hot Spin slot is for Android phone and iPhones far more than larger tablets, iPads or desktops.
For one, you have to play it in portrait mode. For two, half the screen is taken up with a giant wheel of fortune that only sometimes comes into play.
At least games like Mystery Fruit slot by Red Tiger Gaming only bring out the wheel when it’s needed, this feels like that massive graphic takes away from the fun of the main reels.
The spin button is also right in the middle of the screen, making it an awkward distance for thumbs on tablets.
If you look at the slot bonus feature below you might think that this Hot Spin iSoftbet game is loaded with features. And it is. Just not in the base game.
The base game is basically 5 reels and 3 rows of generic cherries, lemons, bells and diamonds covering 20 paylines, with the occasional wild to spice things up.
The 4 or 5 of a kind wins aren’t even that impressive, to be honest; a single one will barely cover 10x your bet. Which is a shame because if you can hit those bonus games, things really start to hit up.
That big wheel of Fortune that is your constant companion above can do two things.
It can randomly spin and trigger one Hot spin with one of 6 bonus features to overlay on the reels below.
Or, if you get 3 bonus symbols, trigger anything from 5 to 15 free spins with one of those 6 bonus features constantly active for the bonus.
And those Hot Spin slot features are impressive; from colossal symbols to wild reels, to sync reels like in the Twin Spin Deluxe game, there are big wins to be had here.
This is one of those casino games you pick up on your phone on your way to work, never really intending to play more than a couple of quick spins. Still good, but ultimately forgettable.

Hot Spin: At any point, during any normal spin, you can trigger one spin with any of the above features.
This Hot Spin game is exactly that: for mobile phones.
It's a bit awkward to use your tablet, and as for desktop, the graphics are basically so small you might as well skip it and play on a fruity video slot that is a little more compatible - Fruit Shop by NetEnt maybe?
Not that this is a bad game. In fact, we've had some really fun free spin rounds, and the features are varied enough that you never quite know what you're getting.
But the actual base game feels boring and like a waste of time as you spend your time wishing that giant wheel would do more than just softly turn on screen.
It's ok. It's playable. There are wins to be had. But we doubt we'll be coming back here often.
Or you can play Hot Spin at one of these mobile casinos:
