Hot Slot

General Overview

SG Interactive and its fully owned Barcrest have a game called Hot Slot. It’s played on 10 pay-lines and 5 reels, but what’s more important is that it comes with an innovative feature that assumes there’s a hot slot machine and at least one cold. To help you increase the chances of finding the hot slot, the developer has added its iconic Big Bet game into the mix as well. All in all, Hot Slot doesn’t seem to be a good choice for beginners due to its complex nature, but it’s certainly worth giving at least a try as it may just be the only one out there with such concept. Take a look at the full review next to learn more.

Features and Bets

Hot Slot is actually a 5 in 1 game. It’s just that the player can only play one of game at a time as the rest run in parallel. By default, one of these 5 slot machines is selected randomly by the game and turned into a hot slot. The difference between a hot slot and normal one is a big one: the hot slot has an expected return to player (RTP) of 100%, while the four non-hot slots have an RTP of 95%.

Players can manually choose between blue, purple, yellow, green and red slots, hoping that the one selected is the hot slot. Sadly, there’s only 1 in 5 chance that the selected one is indeed the 100%-return machine.

Fortunately, there’s the Big Bet game that comes to the rescue. Like with other Barcrest games like Ooh Aah Dracula, the Hot Slot game can be played using the 10-credit or 15-credit Big Bet game that pays for 5 of your spins. The 10-credit choice means that just 1 of 3 of the slot machines is the hot slot. The 15-credit Big Bet game gives you even better chances by turning it into a 50/50 gamble, meaning just 1 of 2 slots is hot.

Note that playing different stake will reset the Hot Slot and countdown, which is used to reset the hot slot so it doesn’t remain unchanged forever. There’s also a slot ranking that applies to the 5 machines, but it doesn’t indicate which one is the real hot slot machine.

Symbols and Bonuses

Hot Slot symbols are the classic fruit machine icons like cherries, oranges, lemons, watermelons, bells, 7’s and bars. Win up to 2,500 coins for 5x Gold 7’s on a line, or hope that the game’s wild card will do the work for you.


Hot Slot is a Barcrest powered online slot that is both innovative and thrilling thanks to its two special features: the Big Bet game and Hot Slot concept. 1 of 5 slot machines in this game has an RTP of 100% and the two Big Bet modes help you maximise your chances of selecting the right one.
