With a classic design, but a very modern edge, this Hot Sync mobile slot delivers on all fronts, with crazy spins and wins.
Ever since the popularity of casino games like the Twin Spin slot, it’s been very popular to stick with classic designs but with modern video slot twists.
The reason we mention Twin Spin is that this Hot Sync slot by Quickspin shares a lot of common DNA with that famous NetEnt slot. Except they’ve made everything bigger and… dare we say it?… better.
Twin Spin, for all it’s love, is a one trick pony; at any point anything from 1 to 5 reels will be cloned and pay out over 243 ways to win.
And that’s great; simplicity, when done well, can be great.
However, this Hot Sync slot figured you can do so much more with cloned reels. Specifically you can add two sets of wilds.
When any two or more Hot Sync slot logo symbols show up, also wilds, those reels will now be ‘hot’ full of extra normal gold wilds and cloned – so they all show the same result.
Granted, over 20 paylines the result isn’t as obvious, but seeing as this feature continues until no more Hot Sync symbols land, it’s easier to get 3 or even 5 reels fully cloned and full of wins.
Because simplicity is all well and good, but everyone loves a good round of free spins.
Especially free spin where the cloned reels, once triggered, remain ‘sticky’ till the end of the free spins. Meaning getting further cloned reels becomes far easier.
Add a whole load of wild symbols on top, and we’ve won over 100 times our bet.
In fact, by our calculation, what you can win on this Hot Sync online slot is impressive; 2848 times your bet, whilst Twin Spin only has 1,080x your bet total.
Granted, of the two, we suspect that getting huge wins is slightly easier with the NetEnt masterpiece.
But, honestly, we’ll happily put Hot Sync up there with the great for being bold and brave to use up a winning feature, and somehow make it even more exiting to play.

Wilds: The gold 'wild' symbol is wild and replaces all other symbols except the bonus scatter symbol and the Hot Sync slot wild.
Hot Sync Wild Re-spins: The Hot Sync slot logo is wild, and when two or more show up on screen, will also trigger one free re-spin.
The reels where the Hot Sync logo is on will then be cloned and show the exact same symbols. More importantly, those reels are now 'hot' with extra wilds, and one almost always shows up.
If another Hot Sync symbol shows up, you get another re-spin, now with another 'hot' cloned reel, and so on, till no more Hot Sync symbols appear.
Scatters and Free Spins: The 'bonus game' symbol is scatter and needs to show on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game to trigger 8 free spins.
These are special because if the Hot Sync wild show up, you get your free-respin with cloned reels, but these will now stay till the end of the free spin rounds.
So it's easier to suddenly get 3, 4 or 5 reels, fully cloned, for more than 1 spin.
Fans of slot machines with interesting story like themes should probably look elsewhere; Medusa II by NextGen perhaps, which also has cloned reels in the bonus games.
But if you enjoy the simple classic fruity design, this Hot Sync slot on mobile is good fun, especially as you feel a rush of excitement every time you get a free-respin.
