EGT’s 40 Burning Hot is a fruit themed game that was recently released by this company. The theme that was picked for this game isn’t one that is capable of impressing anyone these days, but the game has some merits that are worth noting, and which we will explore in the review below.
The game’s getting up to 40 active bet lines, which are going to rely on 5x4 reels for support. There are four progressive jackpots mentioned in the game, of high value, but the game can also deliver payouts of up to $80,000. You will have two types of scatters, one wild and a Jackpot Cards Mystery bonus which can bring you one of the progressives.
Betting and Prizes
The game has a betting structure which seems to rely on fixed coin denominations of $1, allowing the player to set the number of lines (up to 40) and the wagers on them. You can have bets between $40 and $800, so a line can get up to $20. There are a couple of fixed value wagers that can be selected, within that given range.
The fixed payout will come via one of the scatters, with a top value of $80,000. The four progressive jackpots can have even bigger values than that. Their value ranges from high four figures to low to mid six figures in value, so it’s definitely enough to make you a very happy player.
40 Burning Hot Slot Features
Perhaps because the game has a classic theme, it doesn’t do a lot to get your attention and interest in the features department. You are going to have a wild and two scatters, and that’s it.
The Four Leaf Clover is going to be the game’s wild factor, the symbol that you can have as part of new combinations, though never in its own since it doesn’t appear on all reels. You can have the substitutes appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels only. From those positions, the wilds will replace symbols, but not scatters. Wilds can apparently substitute for all symbols that are needed on the same reel, so not just those from its position.
Moving on to the scatter symbols, the first one will be the Dollar Sign. Having anywhere from three to five such symbols appear on the reels will bring about rewards of up to $80,000. That kind of value comes from having the largest wager selected, the game paying 100x the wager value through these scatters.
The second scatter has a Purple Star in its symbol. Get these on all three reels on which they’re allowed, meaning in the columns 1, 3 and 5, and you will get a prize of up to $16,000.
The Jackpot Cards feature is offered in random moments and it has four levels. You have to uncover cards in it, and once you get three of the same type you get a prize that corresponds with it. Each of the four progressive jackpots is associated with a different card suit.
Theme & Design
There isn’t a lot to say about the graphics of 40 Burning Hot. This is a fruit themed game, and so you will discover plenty of fruit symbols and other classics that have been part of the slot machine industry for decades now. You have four leaf clovers, dollar signs, purple stars, red 7s, grapes, melons, gold bells, cherries, lemons, plums and oranges.
40 Burning Hot is a game that’s likely to be appreciated by the players that prefer their slots simple and without too many bells and whistles. Even so, I think a more interesting theme would’ve helped it.
