The inclusion of the word ‘hot’ in the name is probably something to do with the fact that this machine is red – very red, plus when the symbols on the reels form winning combinations, they will produce burning hot flames. The reels themselves are black and the colours come from all of the symbols and the different paylines featured either side of the reels.
You will come across lemons, cherries, oranges, watermelons, plums, stars, bells and red 7s on this slot machine.
The paytable shows you an insight into the game, along with its symbols, information on how you can win and the amount you can win with each set of symbols. You will find this hiding within the blue paytable button to the lower of the screen.
Other buttons featured allow you to toggle through the lines and bets per line, to get to the value you are happy to bet with each spin. You can adjust your bets at any stage.
You will need to match at least 3 of a kind to have a win. The maximum amount on offer is a 10,000-coin jackpot and this is awarded when you have 5 of a kind of the red 7s on your payline.
Wild – as with the previous slot release, Plenty of Fruit 20 Hot has a wild and it is also represented by the red 7. It can be used to complete winning combinations on your active paylines to boost your balance. It will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter, as this holds its own feature.
Scatter – three or more of the star symbols will award you with a multiplier win based on your bet.
Gamble – any win that falls on the reels, no matter how small will allow you to gamble. Hit that orange gamble button and you will be shown a flashing deck of cards with red and black options either side. Guess what you think the next colour card will be to win. This is a 50/50 game of chance and you can view the previous 5 cards on your screen, to try and help you with your decision. If you decide to gamble and then change your mind, you’re not committed to choosing red or black – you can click the collect button to go back to your original win.
We are not going to lie to you, Plenty of Fruit 20 Hot is almost identical to its predecessor, it lacks features to keep players entertained. When we decided to have a crack at the slot machine, we were unimpressed with the amount of spins (and cash) it took to actually get some sort of win on the reels.
Thankfully, the gamble feature helped us top our balance back up on more than one occasion.
There is no music with the slot machine, just a rather strange sound when the reels fall into place, it sounds almost like someone tapping their fingers impatiently on a desk. You will hear a little jingle when you trigger a win and then this in turn brings the countdown clock sound – because now you have to decide whether to gamble or collect your current win.
Plenty of Fruit 20 Hot is a colourful and very basic online slot machine in the style of a classic fruit machine. Good job there is the potential to win 10,000 coin non-progressive jackpot, because there isn’t much else to attract players and keep them playing.
