100 Super Hot mixes a classic slot theme with video slot features like 5 reels and 100 paylines. However, the features stop right there as a 100 Super Hot is a low-tech game with no free spins or any other bonus games. All winnings come from the base game and the risk gamble game, apart from the four progressive jackpots that keep ticking on the top of the reels. With a pretty basic layout and simple animation, this fruity slot is the last in EGT’s Burning Hot franchise.
100 paylines for a slot as highly-volatile as 100 Super Reels is a bit unusual as these types of games tend to create configurations for lower hit frequencies by creating 5, 10, and even 20 paylines. However, EGT has balanced this off with modest winnings, since you have so many ways to win. Of course, it helps that the symbols are stacked, along with the wild 7, and triggers a plethora of paylines at once when matching fruits land from left to right across 3, 4, or 5 reels.
The star is the scatter symbol that does not trigger any special features, like in other games. However, it pays handsomely if it lands across multiple reels. The slot contains the risk gamble found in many other slots, where you either double your winnings or lose everything you won in the last spin. The symbols include grapes, cherries, lemons, olives, oranges, slices of watermelon and 7 wild, and star scatter. So, does 100 Super Hot sizzle up your bankroll or does it fizzle out? Read on to find out.
This is a pretty fruity question given the high-volatility of this game. You need to be patient and be satisfied with modest wins until the big-ticket combinations appear. The betting window is between $0.40 and 0.80, which means the game is suitable for all types of playing budgets. Since the symbols are stacked, your winning paylines can run horizontally, vertically or in a zigzagged manner. The stacked 7 wilds come pretty often and act as jokers in a card game, creating more winning combinations.
All the fruit symbols have certain values that will decide your payouts depending on the number of reels they appear simultaneously. The red 7s also act as ordinary symbols when they land in winning combinations, except that they carry the second-highest highest payout at 10 times your bet if they land on all 5 reels. The single star scatter also acts as a common symbol, but pays out the highest at 500 times your bet if it lands on all 5 reels.
Grapes pay out 4x, plums and melons pay two times your bet, and oranges, cherries, lemons just return your stake. A full screen of 7s pays out 1000 times your bet, which is the biggest amount that can be won in the game, unless you count the 4 jackpots, which can run into thousands, hundreds of thousands and even into 7 figures. However, at 95.53% the average RTP of 100 Super Hot is slightly lower than average. The best way to play is to budget your spins according to your play fortunes.
You can trigger the progressive jackpots with mystery cards, which can take you to all the 4 levels of progressives attached to the game. There are 12 cards facing downwards, with the suits corresponding to the four jackpot levels.
Clubs will take you to the first level, diamonds to the second, hearts the third, and spades takes you to the highest paying progressive. The suit of the 3 cards you pick will determine your progressive jackpot prize.
Once you win a payout the risk gamble button on the gaming console gets activated. If you want to double your win after a particularly spectacular win you can press the button to double your payout or risk it all.
You have to decide whether the next card to be drawn will be red or black. If you guess correctly, your winnings from that spin are doubled – if you guess wrong, the money will disappear. You can abandon the risk game at any time by hitting the ‘Collect’ button.
By all means you can play 100 Super Hot while on the move, from anywhere and at any time. The game is fully-optimized for all smartphones and tablets that run on modern versions of Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Blackberry, etc. This means you can play 100 Super Hot on a range of devices from budget smartphones to the latest iPod.
Thanks to the HTML5 programming of the game, it plays out in full HD clarity and audio integrity, just like it does on desktops and laptop. You will be playing online through your browser, so just make sure your mobile supports at least one of the common browsers. Of course, you will also need a reliable internet connection for uninterrupted game play.
Since it is the last of a successful series of slots, 100 Super Hot is old wine in a new bottle for all practical purposes. The game’s mechanics have been tweaked a bit, but 100 Super Hot does not offer anything drastically new. Like the old adage goes, ‘don’t fix what ain’t broken’, EGT has not fundamentally altered a concept, which works well.
The most important difference in 100 Super Hot is the 100 paylines, which means players can bet frequent hits with modest winnings. To win anything significantly in this high-variance slot, pockets have to be deep – if you increase your bets you are correspondingly enhancing your risk. Fruit lovers with patience and some budgeting skills are likely to love this 100 Super Hot.
