Hot Shot is a slot that you get if you play at Microgaming powered casinos. The theme in question seems to be based on baseball, one of the few slot machines to choose this particular sport as inspiration. The look is not a modern one, but the symbols look OK and they are based on sports or fast food, things that you might see or eat while in the stands at a game. You have only a couple of basic features, scatters and wilds, so clearly that part is not the one that’s impressive about this slot. The 5 reels also get only 9 lines, yet another sign that it’s a basic type of game. Rewards of $2,000 are possible, with the right combo forming.
Betting and Prizes
The slot will not require a large wager, will not even allow it, since the most you can spend on 9 lines is $18. As you can guess, the maximum line bet, or coin value if you will, reaches $2. The minimum one will be at $0.01.
The rewards are hardly impressive themselves, promising 1,000 coins in exchange for the right type of combination forming. You can get $2,000 from that, hardly an impressive jackpot.
Hot Shot Slot Features
One of the two symbols that you can rely on to do something extra is the wild, the one which has the Wild Ball logo on it. The only role for a wild is that of a replacement symbol, one that you can use to form combinations together with regular symbols. Wilds will not take the place of scatter symbols.
As for the other type of symbol, the scatter, you use it wherever it happens to appear. You get only the requirement of landing a minimum of three, in order to get a prize from it. There are no free spins or bonus games coming from it, just a cash prize, worth 10x, 50x or 100x total bet, for 3, 4 or 5 icons.
Theme & Design
The game does well enough as far as design is concerned, but it’s not ahead of the few competitors which have this theme. You get only themed symbols though, which is an advantage. Low paying symbols have food and drinks, including coffee, candy, pop corn, French fries and hot dogs. Better paying icons get strikes, silhouettes of players, baseball caps and various trophies and logos.
Hot Shot video slot should be an adequate choice for anyone that loves the sport, but since it doesn’t offer anything truly valuable, the rest of the players might want something else.
