As Retro as it Gets
No matter how many weird, wacky and wonderful video slots there are available to play online, us spinners just can’t help but go back to the basics every now and again to enjoy some vintage calibre gambling action. You’ll get exactly that with this AWP style slot machine by IGT – one of the world’s leading developers of land-based casino games. As such, the symbols are instantly recognisable to anyone who has played an arcade slot machine in the past. So that’s pretty much everyone then!
In fact, there isn’t much to it other than a series of single, double and triple bar symbols plus a red seven icon and one symbol which combines a single bar with a blue 7. So, on the face of it, this is about as basic as it gets. What’s more, just to up the retro vibes, the game will blast out authentic arcade style music as the 3 reels are set in motion.
We’ve mentioned the basic game symbols which Super Times Pay Hot Roll has to offer, but that is only half of the story. Because this slot machine boasts 5 wild symbols – yes, 5 – and each of these icons offers a different multiplier value. So, not only will these bonus symbols sit in for other game icons to complete wins, but they will potentially give your betting balance a bounteous boost. They didn’t call this slot machine “Super Times Pay” for nothing…
With 20 paylines available to play with, this slot machine is bound to provide plenty of wins on a frequent basis. The downside is that those wins may be quite small, relatively speaking. Nonetheless, bettors are presented with an ample range of wagering options to allow them to play as conservatively or as gung-ho as they want. The available number of line bets are limited to the following quantities – 1, 5, 9, 15 and 20 – and the available line bets are: 1, 2, 3, 5, 10 and 20. So, the lowest possible wager for a spin is a tiny 1 credit while the largest is a whopping 2,000 credits.
Wins are awarded for finding three matching icons on an active payline, in which case a line bet multiplier will be applied to calculate the winning prize. There are loads of different winning combinations available since bar symbols can be mixed and matched to provide a simple 5x multiplier. A combination of the two 7 icons will pay a more lucrative 20x multiplier. Three triple bars pays 30x, while three blue 7s makes a 40x multiplier and a line of red 7s will times the line bet value by 80x.
Of course, the most valuable icons of all at the wild multipliers. Find a row of 2x wilds and you will multiply the line bet by 1,000x. A line consisting of 2x-3x-2x will offer 1,500x whereas 2x-4x-2x rewards 2,000x. The best combination available to line up on the reels will pay out a line bet multiplier of 5,000x, and that is for a row that looks like this: 2x-5x-2x.
Hot Roll Bonus
Things start to get really heated whenever three “Hot Roll” scatter icons appear on the reels in any position. In such an event, the Hot Roll dice jackpot bonus game will be triggered and spinners will be reminded of just how exciting it all is with some “Hot Hot Hot” music while flames engulf the screen.
The aim of this bonus game couldn’t be simpler. Roll the dice to win bonus multiplier prizes. Each number that you roll could potentially land you some big bonus bounty, just make sure you don’t roll a 7 – because that will end the bonus game and take you back to the reels. In theory, if players avoid rolling any 7s, then they can keep rolling for up to 300 rolls or until they reach the jackpot which is capped at 25,000,000 credits.

Simple But Effective
On the face of it, Super Time Pay Hot Roll may not be the most imaginative slot machine in the market. There are only 3 reels with a limited range of traditional game symbols, and even the game’s title sounds as if someone randomly picked some words out of a dictionary. However, this 3-reel classic slot does provide plenty of top-notch gambling action with its wild multipliers and scorching hot bonus round.
