Fields of Green
As we said, the 20 Burning Hot video slot is a fairly traditional game, and you can expect a pretty low key design as a result. While this game hasn’t yet been released at casinos that feature software by EGT Interactive, we’re pretty sure it will look and play just like the original Burning Hot, which means you can expect an attractive green color scheme with dark reels and simple but nice looking symbols on the reels. A clean user interface makes this machine easy to play and navigate with few distractions.
EGT traditionally has done a great job of making their games mobile-optimized, and you’ll be able to play this one at your favorite online casino with no download needed for desktop, tablet, or smartphone devices. We can’t say for sure exactly what betting options will be available, but we do know that games from this developer usually feature several denominations to choose from and a choice of several betting levels, so both high rollers and more casual gamblers should be able to feel comfortable. If you’re not sure whether or not you even want to play for real money, a play for free version will also be offered.
The action on the 20 Burning Hot video slot takes place on a traditional 3×5 layout with five reels and 20 paylines. As usual, the object is to match identical symbols across your lines, with three in a row typically being needed in order to score a win. The longer the matches you make, the larger the payouts will be. Smaller prize winners include various fruits like cherries, oranges, and lemons, while bells, watermelons, and grapes can provide larger rewards. Sevens are the high-paying symbol, offering the biggest payouts and some consolation prizes even if you just hit two in a row.
Fire on Board
While this isn’t a particularly feature-rich title, there are some special symbols that players should be aware of. The most important of these is the clover, which acts as a wild. These can appear on the second, third, and fourth reels, and when they do, they will substitute for any symbol in order to help make winning paylines. As an added bonus, any clover that has the potential to help make a winning combination will expand to put wild symbols on every position on that reel, multiplying the potential help you’ll receive from it. When this occurs, you’ll see the clover catch on fire – a sure sign that you’re burning hot!
There’s are also two different types of scatter symbols that you can look for in order to score additional prizes. The first, a dollar sign, can appear on any reel, and will grant you prizes if you find three or more anywhere on the reels. The other, a star, only appears on the first, third, and fifth columns; hit all three, and you’ll be rewarded with an instant payout. Surprisingly, however, neither of these scatters will allow you to get free spins or into any special bonus rounds.
A Jackpot in Spades
That doesn’t mean that there aren’t any special features to trigger, however. Any spin has a chance of randomly triggering the jackpot cards feature, which will present you with 12 cards face down on the screen. Click on them to reveal what suit they belong to, and as soon as you match three of a kind, you’ll win the associated jackpot. This can range from the somewhat modest clubs payout to the larger diamonds, hearts, and spades prizes.
In addition, there’s also a gamble feature that will give you an opportunity to increase your earnings after a winning spin. If you are a gambler at heart, you can take this optional opportunity and guess what color a randomly drawn card will be: red or black. If you’re correct, your payout will be doubled, but guess wrong, and you’ll instead lose everything you won on the last spin.
A Red Hot Addition to the Series
While this game may have a lot in common with the original game in the series, we still think that many gamblers will be interested enough to play 20 Burning Hot. Adding in more paylines is a great way to freshen up the gameplay, so even those who have enjoyed the original machine are likely to get something new out of this version when it is released. We’ll be sure to post a more complete review once EGT officially puts this game on the market, which we expect to happen in late 2017.
