It’s time to take it back to the old school in Barcrest’s 3-reel classic Red Hot Wild. Prepare to nostalgia hard as you roll the reels for cherries, lemons and all the other fruits that were synonymous with a misspent youth.
Back when video slots were just slots – or fruit machines, as the cabinet versions found in pubs and arcades were known – Barcrest ruled the roost. The company have been churning out fruit-based slots for decades, and their wares could once be found in a great many pubs the lengths and breadth of the British Isles.
Times change and companies rise and fall; it would be fair to say that Barcrest are no longer the market leader they once were. They’re still more than capable of crafting a cracking slot however, even if theirs favour old-school aesthetics over new-school.
The fact that there are just 3 reels alone makes Red Hot Wild a retro slot, but in truth 3’s more than enough reels with which to rustle up some mayhem and usher in some riches. Barcrest’s fruit machines came of age in the era when all slots came with a hold button and it was common practice to crouch down in an attempt to scrutinise what symbols were next in line. Those days are gone – squinting won’t do you any favours when you’re facing a flat screen – but in every other respect, Red Hot Wild resembles the slots of yore.
