40 is the New 20
The main game symbols in 40 Super Hot are the various fruits that look ripe for the picking. The first set are your citrus buddies, Oranges and Lemons, and they are joined by those juicy Cherries. Match three of a particular fruit on your reels and you will earn 10 coins, spin three and you’ll earn 20 coins and the full set of five pays 100 coins.
The next unlikely pairing is the Plum and Watermelon combination, and these pay out 20, 40 and 200 coins for spinning three, four and your five a day respectively.
The bunch of Grapes looks good enough to eat, and they offer some of the tastiest rewards on offer from the main game: 20 coins for matching three on your reels, 80 coins for four and 400 coins for spinning a full five.
Slot gamers around the world will be delighted to hear that 40 Super Hot includes both a wild and a scatter symbol. The wild is the classic number 7, and this delivers timeless rewards too. It will substitute for all of the other main game symbols – except from the scatter – in order to help players create some fantastic winning combinations. Who knows… the wild might just turn a losing spin into a winner!
And don’t forget there are the base payouts for your wild 7s too: 40 coins for three, 400 coins for four and a staggering 1,000 coins for spinning five on a winning line.
The brightest star in the sky in this particular game is the scatter, which just happens to be the Star. This earns a jaw-dropping 200,000 coins for hitting five; an incredibly generous main game payout. If you are only lucky enough to spin three or four, then not to worry: you’ll still earn a very handsome 200 and 800 coins respectively.
There is a Gamble feature to enjoy in 40 Super Hot, although it only offers you the chance to double your winnings – rather than the 4x chance you get in some other titles. You’ll be presented with a playing card and all you need to do is guess whether it is red or black to double your payout; it really is as simple as that.
As we’ve come to love about EGT’s titles, the opportunity to play for a four-level jackpot is par for the course. The Jackpot Cards feature affords players the chance to win a fantastic payout just for matching three playing card symbols.
It is randomly triggered, so there is nothing specific to look out for on your reels, but should you get lucky then you will truly be on cloud nine with the rewards on offer.
You will be taken to another game screen where 12 playing cards lay face down. Your mission is to pick three matching ‘suits’ (hearts, diamonds, spades or clubs) and once you have you will win the corresponding amount as outlined on the screen.
Given the lucrative nature of the Jackpot Cards feature, plus the 200,000 coin big prize in the main game, we are willing to forgive EGT for the absence of a free spins bonus round in 40 Super Hot!
