Shining Hot Review
There aren't many slots that can say they have four different versions but Pragmatic Play's Shining Hot certainly can. Shining Hot 5, Shining Hot 20, Shining Hot 40 and Shining Hot 100 are all the same except for paylines.
Each of the games plays on 5-reels and contains medium to high volatility gameplay. Not only that but they are all inspired by classical fruit machine slots and keep the gameplay simple.
When Shining Hot opens up, it's clear that the design is going for a minimalistic style as well. There are a few animated flames on a red background but that's about it.
On the reels, there are different fruit symbols varying from cherries to bananas with each of them looking decent enough. The music is quite funky and feels like an instrumental version of an early dance track from the 2000s.
During the gameplay, all players need to know is how to spin. There are wilds during the base game but that's about it. There are no special bonus rounds or multipliers in this game either as everything is stripped bare.
Like most Pragmatic Play slots, there is a spin button at the bottom of the screen and a bet level to the left of it. Further to the left of the menu, there is a menu button as well as sound settings.
The RTP for each of the games varies but not by much. Shining Hot 100 has an RTP of 96.32%, Shining Hot 40 has an RTP of 96.36% whilst the other two versions have an RTP of 96.33%.
All the games contain a medium to high volatility level as well as a maximum win of up to 2,500x the stake. This is a low amount, especially for a game lacking in features which will definitely disappoint high rollers.
On paper, Shining Hot seems like an incredible concept but sadly the execution was thoroughly lacking. The only unique feature is the different paylines, aside from that Shining Hot is just like any other fruit machine slot.
This is ideal for players looking for straightforward gameplay with no complicated mechanics, but that's about it. If this sounds like you, then be sure to give Shining Hot a spin.
