Hot Hand is the latest classic slot to come out of Rival Gaming. The developer chose a hell-related theme for this one, featuring a sexy she-devil, called Bernadette. With some impressive features, particularly for a classic slot, Hot Hand has some decent rewards to give away as well, under the right conditions.
Rival decided to go with the classic setup, which has 3x3 reels and up to 5 active lines. The wagers, if they’re high enough, can turn a 4,500 coins reward into a prize of $22,500 on a single line. Along the way, the major features which you will be able to use rely on wilds with 2x to 4x multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
The bets are complex enough for a slot with just 3 reels and 5 lines. You get to pick the number of lines for one, up to 3 coins for each one next, and finally there is the coin value as well. With the denomination starting from $0.01 and going up to $5, the complete betting range for Hot Hand is $0.01 to $75, using up to $15 per line.
Depending on the number of coins wagered per line, wins will go as high as 1,500x the line bet, or up to 4,500 coins. Given the coin value that’s possible, the game will pay at most $22,500 for a combo of three multiplier wilds. If the wilds can appear in multiple positions on the same reel, then the potential of the slot should reach a maximum of $112,500.
Hot Hand Slot Features
It’s not the most elaborate game around, and it’s not something that’s expected of it anyway, since this slot has only 3 reels and mostly a classic theme. The wild symbols are the only ones assisting you with their abilities, and you get three variants, for just as many reels.
Reel 1 gets the 2x wild, reel 2 has the 3x one, while reel 3 has a 4x wild symbol on it. These wilds can be combined, their multipliers ending up boosting wins by up to 12x (if 3x and 4x multipliers combine). On their own, these wild symbols mix and form a combo of wilds, when all three appear on a line. The payout offered in that case is 1,500x the line bet (up to 4,500 coins). At the very least, if you get a single wild symbol to appear in a combo, it will be a substitute for any other type of icon, while using its multiplier on the resulting win.
Theme & Design
The theme is a mix of fire and classic icons, a combination that we’ve noticed quite a few times in the past. The slot relies on Bernadette, an attractive she-devil, for the main character and the best paying regular symbol. The rest of the symbols involved are considered classics, so as you go from high to low value, you meet the Fire 7, the Fire Diamond, Bells, Cherries and the four card suit icons.
While the choice of symbols is not that unique or fun, the quality of the symbols is good, better than what you can expect in 90% of the 3-reel slots available today.
For the fans of simpler games, but which would love some attractive graphics in their slots, Hot Hand could be the right game. The wild multipliers do make the action exciting.
