Hot Spin doesn’t tell us much about this game, but as we settle down to play it, we will learn far more about its various features. The most unusual element of the game is seen when it first loads. While the reel set is shown on screen as per usual, there is a wheel turning slowly above it. This wheel has an important role to play, as we will see.
The game adopts five reels and gives us 20 lines to bet on as well.
Covering every line means wagering a minimum of 20 cents on each spin. If you go to the biggest available bet, you will end up wagering $20 per spin.
There is a wild in this game, shown as just a W in gold. It is good for using in place of various other symbols, except for the bonus. This is shown as a bonus wheel and appears in lots of colors.
That bonus wheel must show up on the first, third, and fifth reels of the game in the same spin to give you a spin on the Hot Wheel. This is the wheel lazily turning above the reel set. You can win some free games on this wheel, with between one and 15 of them on offer. There are bonuses on the wheel too, meaning you could enjoy mystery symbols, reels that turn in sync with each other, random wilds, and much more besides. Only one bonus element will be chosen to activate during your free games.
However, there is also a chance you could randomly win a spin on the Hot Wheel while playing the bonus game. So, even if you do not find three bonus symbols, a spin on the wheel may still be closer than you think.
We liked this game – its unusual appearance takes you a bit by surprise to start with, but soon gives way to an entertaining slot you will undoubtedly enjoy. It offers more features than you might think for a game based around fruit. Yes, there is a link here to a more traditional slot, but the gameplay proves this slot is anything but traditional. See if it is a winner for you.
