Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs Review
With 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines, Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs starts off looking like your typical fruit machine, but as you play you'll see that there is so much going on with this game that makes it stand out from the many other fruities on the market.
We love the fiery theme, and the colours of this game really make the symbols pop. And with a fun free spins round, a load of sticky symbols and other special functions, 4 different jackpots on offer and a max prize of 6,000x your stake, there is no doubt that Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs is a contender for our favourite new fruity!
When you hear the words ‘fruit machine’, you conjure up images of watermelons, cherries, bells and 7s. And we're happy to say that all of these symbols make the cut in Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs.
But where this game will stick in your mind is with the black, red and orange backdrop, spewing flames and lava, and the gold shine on every symbol and the game board. Oh, and did we mention there are bombs? Gold bombs!
There is no mistaking the hot theme here, especially when you land free spins and are presented with a very cheeky joker holding a bomb who, rather oddly, seems more than happy to be blown up!
Finally, this is one game where we actually really love the sound effects and soundtrack (if you’ve read our reviews before, you’ll know we can be a bit harsh on slot soundtracks). Here, Wazdan has opted for an 80s-inspired arcade backing track, that gets more and more upbeat the more you play it.
And with the dark, flaming background and the soundtrack together, we kind of get some Stranger Things vibes going on and, to be honest, we’re living for it! When it comes to design, Wazdan has done a great job here of creating an atmospheric and genuinely exciting, searingly hot fruit machine game.
The Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs slot game comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 fixed paylines. This is pretty much a textbook slot game, so you’ll get the hang of it straight away. However, if you are new to the world of slot gaming, you'll find all the information you need about the game rules, symbol values and special features by clicking the ‘i’ button at the bottom of the screen.
One thing we really like about Wazdan is that they always give you plenty of insight into their games and how much you can potentially win. You can also adjust your volatility, which will suit different types of players. If you're happy with regular payouts in modest amounts, then we recommend choosing the lowest volatility.
One of our favourite elements of Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs is that you can play with your volatility. That means that you are more in control of your win potential than with many other games.
Although the paylines are fixed, you have plenty of room to manoeuvre when it comes to your bet amount. And with an RTP of 96.17%, Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs gives you just above the average for a slot game.
Your jackpot amounts will change depending on your bet, but with 4 different jackpot prizes on offer, this slot has the potential to be extremely lucrative. Plus, with the Sticky to Infinity™ feature, the Jackpot Mystery symbols will stay on the reels for a very long time, increasing your overall chances of landing one of these prizes.
Finally, with a top prize of 6,000x, Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs is a lot more generous than many other slots on the market. So all in all, depending on how you like to play and which volatility you choose, you could be a very happy customer after playing Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs!
We’re just going to come out and say it: we absolutely love Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs! While we've always got a special place in our hearts for a good ‘ol fruit machine, Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs offers a kind of ‘Fruit Machine 2.0’ experience.
All of our favourite symbols are here and gameplay is extremely straightforward. But add in all of those special features, 4 jackpots, a bigger-than-average top prize of 6,000x, an awesome theme, top graphics and fun soundtrack, and you’ve pretty much got the recipe for the perfect slot experience. Plus, who doesn’t love a gold bomb?
