Hot Roller from NextGen Gaming is centred around the fast-living life of Las Vegas. Step into the shoes of the seriously high rollers, with all the trappings and luxury that comers with the lifestyle. Set in the world of the casino, the graphics and symbolism reflect such a world and serve to inspire you to play hard and win big.
Presented over the standard 5 x 3 setup with a modest 25 paylines, this slot gives the player a real taste of life in the casinos of Las Vegas. Set the number of lines by hitting the ‘lines +/-’ button, set coin sizes by hitting the ‘bet +/-’ button, and gamble after each win by hitting the ‘gambe’ button. Autoplay is possible with this slot, activate and set the spin numbers to set the reels in motion without interruption. When you’re ready to spin the reels simply hit ‘spin’ and you’re off!
The new status symbols
The special symbols in this slot give you the benefit of a wild and a scatter, the wild being a sexy blonde lady in charge of rolling the dice for you. She’ll substitute all symbols across the reels except for the scatter. Any winning combination that includes a wild will be doubled.
The scatter here is the set of two red dice, with wins involving the scatter multiplied by the total amount staked. Get three scatters anywhere across the reels to activate the free spins bonus round.
Some great features to boost the wins
The free spins bonus and the gamble feature are pretty much the only significant features in the slot, but they do more than make up for the lack of any others. The free spins feature is could bring you up to 36 free spins and a 6x multiplier. Roll the red dice to find out how many spins you’ll be awarded, the total is multiplied to give you your free spins amount.
You then roll the white to determine the value of the multiplier. This feature can be reactivated, but without the need to reroll the dice. Your spins number and multiplier amount carries over from the first time.
This can be activated each and every time you get a win, simply hit the ‘gamble’ button to start it off. It’s possible to double or quadruple your winnings at this stage. Correctly guess the colour to double your winnings, get the suit too and you stand to quadruple your winnings. As with most of the these gamble features there’s an element of danger, guess incorrectly and you stand to lose your winnings. Guess five times max (if you dare).
Hot Roller is a decent slot, let's be fair here. Is it the best Vegas themed slot around? Probably not, but it does have that nice free spins feature that could translate into some very tidy wins. Worth a good shot we’d say, just don’t expect to be blown away.
