Hot Spin Deluxe is the upgrade to the original Hot Spin slot from iSoftBet. Both games look so much the same that you would be forgiven to mistake one for the other. The difference only shows in the features.
In any case, we get a retro-themed slot that uses classic fruit machine symbols. Since this slot doesn’t play like a fruit machine, however, we consider it a video slot.
The slot isn’t exactly blowing us away with its graphics. We get bright colours, a golden background, a disco soundtrack and a wheel spinning lazily on the left-hand side.
The reels show the diamond, a lucky 7, a star and a bell as the high value symbols. Melon, plum, lemon and cherries make up the low value symbols. There’s also a “W” wild symbol and a bonus wheel scatter symbol.
The diamond is the most valuable symbol, paying out 25x our stake for 5 on a payline. The wild would pay out as much, if you got 5 on a payline.
You can play this game from 0.20 to 25.00 per spin.
The main attraction in this game is the Hot Spin Wheel. And this has been the case in the original slot as well. But, as already mentioned, we get a bit of an addition here.
The Hot Spin Wheel may randomly jump into action on any base game spin and do its thing (it’s a new addition to the deluxe version of this game). That is a rare occurrence, however, and you are much more likely to see the free spins, where it dominates the game anyway.
The free spins are triggered by landing the scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5. When that happens, the Hot Spin Wheel will start spinning and land on one of 6 features:
Then the middle reel will spin, and the number of free spins will be determined. You can get between 4 and 15. Also, a multiplier can also be applied on every spin and climb up to 10x. This is the second feature that has been added to the deluxe version of this slot.
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) of Hot Spin Deluxe is a solid 96%, which makes it very average in this regard. The slot is also quite volatile and may eat up your budget, if you are not careful.
That said, we felt that the free spins were activated often enough, and we enjoyed a variety of the six features, which are always selected at random. We probably had our best results when we got 7 additional wilds on the reels, which gave us some amazing wins. But some of the other features were worthwhile as well.
On more than one occasion we won more than 100x our stake and ended our sessions when we had reeled in over 350x our stake. If you get a good run like that, Hot Spin Deluxe is entertaining and fun. Whilst it doesn’t look like much, the gameplay definitely works, and it doesn’t get boring. But if you find yourself on the losing side, you might want to take your remaining funds and play something a little more forgiving.
