Find Your Sweet Spot
Players of all budgets and experience levels are welcome to give 5 Dazzling Hot a try, and thanks to the number of different bet per line and coin values available, everyone can find their own sweet spot in terms of the amount they are staking to achieve an appropriate level of win. Some will prefer staking small and enjoying the fact that their balance isn’t going down too fast, while others will want to feel the huge satisfaction of scooping the 100,000 coin top prize (five 7s with a 100 coin bet line).
There’s a cool animation every time you spin a winner, and the symbols burst into flames upon matching which is a nice touch. The feeling of excitement at seeing that never seems to fade.
With just five paylines to hit, it can take a while for a winning spin to come along, but players are advised to be patient as the prizes, as outlined earlier in this guide, are well worth the wait.
Hot and Fruity
There’s a veritable smorgasbord of fruity symbols to spin on your five reels – each of which contains three rows, and these pay according to the following denominations (based on a 1 coin bet: payouts increase accordingly as you increase your stake increase):
Cherries, Oranges, Lemons, Plums – three matches pays 20 coins, four pays 50 and five earns 200.
Grapes, Watermelon – Spin three of the Grapes or Watermelon symbol on a payline to win 50 coins, four earns 200 and a full five pays at 500 coins.
And then, in a non fruity way, we have the red number 7, which pays 100, 1,000 and 5,000 coins for matching three, four or five on your reels respectively.
Finally, there is the scatter symbol to look out for: the shining Yellow Star. This earns 10 coins for spinning three anywhere on your reels, 50 coins for four and a rather tidy 250 coins for a full five.
As if all that excitement wasn’t enough to take, there is also a Gamble feature which enables players to double up their money. Every time you enjoy a winning spin, you will have the choice of banking your prize or alternatively gambling it on the turn of a playing card for the chance to scoop a 2x multiplier. Simply guess the colour of the card when it is upturned to win the round, and remember that you can try the gamble five times per winning spin: meaning that you can, if you’re lucky, enjoy an 32x multiplier in total!
5 Dazzling Hot, like most of the EGT game collection, incorporates the irresistible Jackpot Cards feature. This pays players one of four progressive jackpots, and the amount you win is based on which playing card suit you match first.
The premise of Jackpot Cards is simple. The game is triggered completely at random, so you will never know when your chance to win a huge sum of money is just around the corner. You will be presented with a pick field of 12 playing cards, each of which is lying face down. You will be asked to select the cards you want, and you will continue this process until you have three matching suits at your disposal.
These pay in the following ways:
- Club = First Level
- Diamond = Second Level
- Heart = Third Level
- Spade = Fourth Level
Each of the suits pays at the rate listed at the top of the game screen, and you will be paid out for the suit that you first reveal three of.
As mentioned, the Jackpot Cards feature is randomly triggered – there are no lower or upper bet limits – so don’t feel obliged to stake big n order to have a chance of winning one of the big prizes.
