The Striking Hot 5 slot is a simple 5×3 reel 5 payline online casino game created by Pragmatic Play with fruit symbols, scatters, and wilds. Unfortunately, the low RTP of 94.32% let it down, despite a huge top win of 5,000x your bet.
Strike while it’s hot with this pretty fruit machine that gives you classic symbols and classic wins. The 7 is the highest paying symbol on the reels and a 5 of a kind win will get you 1,000x your bet.
The good news is that all the symbols come stacked, allowing you to get multiple wins on multiple lines. Theoretically, that 7 could come stacked on all reels and pay on all 5 paylines, giving you the top win of this Pragmatic Play slot game.
The rest of the symbols are standard but well designed – from the red glossy apple to the orange, grape, cherry, lemon, and watermelon. Finally, you have the dollar sign as the scatter that pays in all positions.
There are no special bonus features in this Striking Hot 5 slot other than scatters and the stacked symbols.
At heart, this is a classic 5 payline casino game with better graphics than the Sizzling Hot Deluxe slot or Wild Times game from Barcrest, because there’s no denying that with flames bursting out of nowhere on a win and the softly swaying curtains in the background, it certainly looks like one of the more modern online slots.
But make no mistake, this Striking Hot 5 mobile slot is a slightly more advanced version of a classic 3 reeler. The fact there are only 5 paylines should give you a clue that while it may look modern, it plays with the simplicity of a fruit machine that you might find at your local pub.
We had no problem with the simplicity of the slot; we even like the look of it, and the stacked symbols helped create excitement on every spin.
Shame that to get such a strong paytable that allows you to win 5,000x your bet without any multiplier or bonus feature, you have to accept a low RTP 94.32%. We rarely like to play slot games with less than 95%.
But, we will say that there’s a quirky fun side to this Striking Hot 5 slot machine that means that if we were to find it at any of our Pragmatic Play Casinos, we would be tempted to take a few spins.
It’s not a casino game for the long run, but it’s fun enough for some quick hits and straightforward wins.

If you love video slots with bonus features, this Pragmatic Play slot is not for you.
However, if you are starting out or love classic 3 reel slots, this will draw you in with its pretty fruit graphics and stacks of symbols.
The main feature of this Striking Hot 5 slot is a strong paytable. That's it. The scatter surprise you from time to time, but for the most part, it's going to be a good 4 or 5 of a kind win that will get you jumping out of your chair.
The low RTP is the only reason we gave this slot review 3 stars instead of 4 stars. But with a nice wide betting range of 0.05 to 100 a spin, it's welcoming for all players and all budgets.
