Hot Shot is a five-reel nine-payline slot machine with sports-related symbols that include a batter, a pitcher, a ball cap, a gold trophy and some fast-food icons. Before starting the reels you should place a bet with the following settings available: a coin denomination from $0.25 to $10, and the number of lines (up to 9). The number of coins per spin has a fixed value of one. The maximum permitted wager amounts to $90.
An Autoplay option is available by hitting the Expert button. In the AutoPlay settings you can choose the number of spins to play without interruption and specify when the automatic session should stop by selecting a suitable radio button. To set the reels in motion, press the Spin or Bet Max button, with the latter starting the round at max stake.
Food-themed symbols are low-valued icons to keep the cash awards ticking over. The Coffee symbol pays out a win x50 times your line bet. The lollipop awards x100 times your bet, the Popcorn symbol pays out x150, Fries and Ketchup – x200, and Sandwich – x250, all of these awarded for five matching symbols landed on an enabled payline.
Baseball symbols are more lucrative as they offer higher rewards and create combinations when at least two identical images display on a payline. The Ball Cap symbol grants 1 to 300 coins, the Pitcher pays out 2 to 500, the Batter pays out 3 to 700, the Strike symbol pays out 4 to 900, and the Home Run symbol pays out 5 to 1000.
The Wild Ball symbol depicting a ball with a fire trail acts as a wild substituting for all other symbols except for scatters. The wild does not award its own cash prize. The Gold Trophy is a scatter, with three, four of five of them paying out x10, x50 or x100 your line bet. Scatters don’t need to land on a payline to award a prize.
Hot Shot is an easy-to-play slot machine with basic functionalities that include a wild and a scatter, that’s all. This Microgaming’s video online slots will appeal to classic slot enthusiasts and to the gamblers who are into baseball. A good news is that you can practice on the game in a free demo mode, without having to pay real cash.
