A Spicy New Slot in the form of Hot Pots
By Simon Wright Dec 9, 2021
Casino game developer Stakelogic, have once again teamed up with Reflex Gaming – the casino game studio behind games to include Sea God, Jurassic Jackpots and Guido’s Gold – this time to bring to slot fans a spicy new release in the form of Hot Pots.
Hots Pots has come about as a result of a collaborative effort that was undertaken as part of the company’s successful Greenlogic® partnership program. It is hoped that this new slot will turn up the heat at the online casinos it will feature on. Providing in the process players with a range of fiery features, including Free Spins, respins and three wild modifiers.
Taking place across as 5×3 game board, the 20 payline slot invites players to descend into the depths of hell, where they’ll find a collection of devilishly hot chilies waiting for them on the reels.
As they spin, a demonic orchestra will start an ominous waltz as lava erupts in the background and the symbols lock into place, with a maximum multiplier of 3,000x available if they fill the board with Hot Pots logos.
On any given spin players will have the chance to land a special hot chili symbol, which can trigger one of three Wild Boost features.
The first is Rivers of Fire, which will add between one and four stacked wilds to the reels. The second is Wild Fire, which transforms between two and eight random symbols into substitute wilds. The third – and arguably the most lucrative – is Red Hot Wilds, which behaves in the same way as Wild Fire, but with the added incentive that all wilds also feature a bonus multiplier.
In addition to those three base game Wild Boosts, players will also be able to trigger the main Free Spins feature by hitting cauldron scatter, super scatter or mega scatter symbols on reels one, two and three. Depending on the combination they land, players will be awarded between eight and 16 bonus games plus an instant payout of up to 50x their stake before the feature begins on a new set of reels.
Wild Boost modifiers will still be present during the feature, but this time they’ll also lock in place and award one, two or three bonus respins whenever they’re activated. The free games can also be retriggered indefinitely, with players receiving a further eight spins when three new cauldrons appear.
Just like Reflex Gaming’s previous release with Stakelogic, Hot Pots also features the latter’s patented Super Stake™ mode. For an additional bet, this optional extra adds further scatters to the reels – making the bonus feature far easier to trigger – and also increases the slot’s maximum multiplier to 4,000x.
Salvatore Campione, Head of Greenlogic® at Stakelogic said: “Our Greenlogic® partnership program has enabled us to team up with some of the most exciting game studios in the industry, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring players another red hot release from Reflex Gaming.”
“With its fun theme and fiery features, the slot looks set to be the perfect winter warmer for players this Christmas.”
Mat Ingram, the Chief Product Officer at Reflex Gaming, said: “Our previous two games through the Greenlogic® program have been Greek themed (Sea God and Midas Wilds).”
“This time, we wanted to go for a more light-hearted feel, and who doesn’t love a bit of spice? Similar to the theme, the maths model is designed to appeal to the widest range of players possible.”
