Hot Shot is a unique type of online slots game as it is based on a classic style slot but has many modern features of a video slot including the five-reel setup. The slot game was developed by Bally Technologies and features some of Bally’s other progressive slot games within the Hot Shot bonus feature. The five reels are set across three rows and there are a total of twenty fixed pay lines, this means all twenty pay lines are in play during the game.
The per line function is to set the coins per pay line at their desired value which can be from the minimum value of 0.01 up to the maximum value of 20.00. Betting the maximum of 20.00 per pay line makes the maximum bet per spin 400 coins, this in turn qualifies players for the chance to win the biggest Hot Shot jackpot prize of 4 000 000 coins.
Hot Shot Online Slot Reel Symbols
The Hot Shot reels are filled with classic styled slot symbols including the single, double and triple bars, golden bells, a dollar sign, cherries, red sevens and flaming sevens. There are also the five different types of scatter symbols which are the logos for the five progressive jackpot online slots in Australia.
All winning combinations run from the furthest left reel towards the right and require three, four or five symbols to land adjacent to each other on a pay line. The blazing sevens are the highest valued regular symbols and pay out 4 000, 20 000 or 100 000 coins when landing three, four or five symbols on a line with the maximum bet in play. The red sevens symbols or a mix of sevens symbols will award anything from 1 000 coins to 20 000 coins. The triple bar symbols award 500 coins to 5 000 coins while the golden bells and the double bars pay out 200 coins to 2 000 coins. The single bar symbols and the dollar signs are the lowest valued symbols that pay out 100 coins to 1 000 coins. If four or five of a mix of the bar symbols land adjacent to each other they award 200 coins and 400 coins when the maximum bet has been placed.
The Game within a Game Feature
There are five different progressive jackpot games which are accessed via the Hot Shot game within a game feature. These jackpot games are Blazing Sevens, Diamond Line, Double Jackpot, Triple Jackpot and the Blazing Sevens Seven Times Pay.
