Fans of the classic fruit machine will love the pumped up, jacked up version of their favourite game in this Sizzling Hot 6 mobile slot.
A mouthful, sure, but they can’t hide that the extra gold is all down to the fact that this is now a 6 reel game instead of 5.
So why does it do better than the original? Honestly, because that extra reel and extra bet make all the difference.
Don’t think that somehow the game has changed; you still get pays when you get symbols adjacent to each other on the 5 paylines, and still don’t have any other bonus feature.
Just fruit symbols, one scatter, and the knowledge that 3 symbols next to each other on any of the reels can create a win.
And there’s a simple beauty to this Sizzling Hot 6 Extra Gold game mechanics. You don’t have to overthink it, you don’t have to hope for a special feature.
Just lots of stacked symbols, and maybe a good 5 of a kind win or two.
Basically, because you have that extra reel, it pays out more often as it’s easier to get adjacent symbols.
You do have to pay a price; an extra bet on your normal line bet opens up that 6th reel, but that still only increases the minimum bet from a low 0.05 a spin to very playable 0.10 a spin.
If that sounds a little too uncomplicated for you, there’s always the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 mobile slot which also adds that extra reel.
However, if you love simple classic slots, but prefer the layout of video slots, this bridges the gap perfectly.

Adjacent Pays: Symbols will pay when they are adjacent to each other across the payline.
So you can get a 3 of a kind win is you find the right symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3, or 2, 3 and 4, or 4, 5, and 6, for example.
It gives you even more options than pays both ways machines like Kawaii Kitty, for example.
Scatter: The star is the scatter symbol and will pay whenever 3 or more show up on screen, regardless of whether it's on a payline or not.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you choose to gamble your winning by playing a simple card game. Guess the correct colour of the next card, and you'll double your prize. Guess wrong and you lose your winnings.
Whether you like this Sizzling Hot 6 slot on mobile will depend on what you expect from this simple game.
It doesn't have flashy graphics; after all, this is based on an old popular land-based game.
But it's popular for a reason, that's thanks to clean fruit symbols, adjacent wins, and every so often, a big win the comes out of nowhere.
The 6th reel adds an extra dimension which, to us, improves on the original game as it helps create more adjacent wins.
If you are still not convinced, you are better off trying a new generation of Novomatic mobile slots like the Top O The Money game.
