Red Hot Wilds - very often what gets shouted at us when we go down the town in spandex.
The temperature is about to be turned up a few notches as you load Red Hot Wild to be welcomed with a ball of fire in background and lots of fresh fruit on the reels that you’d expect when playing fruit machines online, and while it may remind you of the Hot Frootastic slot machine which Barcrest have also released, Red Hot Wild boasts a couple of exciting bonus features that bring so much heat your cheeks will be turning red!
A Classic 3-Reeler
Red Hot Wild is a 3-reeled online slot containing 5 fixed paylines and with between 2p and £100 allowed to be staked on each line this means you can spin the sizzling reels from as little as 10p up to a maximum of £500 for those of you who aren’t afraid of dicing with fire.
Fans of fast gameplay will love how the symbols fall in place almost instantaneously after clicking the spin button and while Barcrest aren’t renowned for the quality of sound effects used in their games, those featured in Red Hot Wild won’t overwhelm you either, but they are certainly bearable unlike many of their other releases with an echo ringing out whenever the reels stop spinning and a catchy tune plays in celebration of winning combinations.
The RTP ranges from 94% to 98% depending on how much you stake and whether the Big Bet mode (where you can enjoy Stepping Wilds or Persistent Wilds) has been activated, but it’s the fact that you can select your own Wild symbol that will really entice you to these red-hot reels!
While most online slots offer a Wild symbol that has been designed specifically for the title, Barcrest have shown their innovative side here as upon loading the Red Hot Wild slot machine you will be prompted to choose which of the symbols should act as the Wild symbol.
You’ll get to choose between ten pairs of symbols which will all be well familiar to those of you who have played fruit machines before. Each of the pairs of symbols has a multiplier value assigned to it to assist in your decision and while you may be tempted to go for the pair of 7s which have a 10x multiplier, this will appear less frequently than those on the lower end of the scale.
There are cherries, lemons and oranges which are worth 1x, pears and plums which are worth 2x, watermelons and bars that are worth 3x, bells that are worth 4x, blue stars which are worth 6x, and as mentioned before, 7s are worth 10x which is the largest multiplier available.
5 Spins in Big Bet Mode
As if the base game action isn’t hot enough, Barcrest have also included the popular Big Bet option that we have enjoy on many of their other titles such as the Top Spot slot machine and the Monopoly Big Event slot machine, for those of you who want to up the ante and fan the flames even further.
When you click to utilise the Big Bet feature you will have to choose between a £20 game and a £30 game which will see the reels spin five times for your one-off fee, but there are differences in the Wild features that you’ll receive depending on which game you opt for. The £20 game will see Transferring Wild symbols on the reels with the Wilds that appear shifting down one place each spin until it falls off, while the £30 game offers Sticky Wild symbols with all Wilds that appear on the reels freezing in place until all of your spins have been completed – especially lucrative if you manage to land a few on your first or second spin!
Upon first glances, Red Hot Wild appears to be your typical three-reeled classic slot with a variety of traditional symbols filling the reels, but delve a little deeper and the fact you can select the Wild symbol and take advantage of the Big Bet feature, and things heat up exponentially.
This game is supplied by Barcrest and is certified by the UK Gambling Commission as having been independently tested and up to the required standards for players in the UK. If you experience any difficulties with this game or any other game you should follow our Complaints procedure and contact us.
At the outset of the game, players are presented with a choice of different wilds – pick one of the symbols which will become wild throughout your game.
Each wild is attached to a multiplier, and the higher the multiplier you choose, the less frequently you will see the wild appearing. It’s up to you how you choose your wild, but once you’ve made a decision, it stays live in place for the remainder of your game.
There’s also the option to change your wild midway through the game, by clicking on the �?Change’ button which will allow you to try out your luck with an alternative configuration.
When the game is underway, the wild acts in the usual way – it’s a wildcard symbol, although it also delivers the corresponding multiple on your line win. It steps in place of any other symbol you’re missing to complete a winning combination on your reels, so in that respect, it’s a useful feature for helping you win more often.
There are no bonus mini-games to speak of, but there is a single bonus feature that helps keep things interesting.
This is a common feature of other Bally slots, known as the Big Bet. There are two options open to players to choose from in this feature – we’ll call them Option 1 and Option 2. Option 1 delivers a 96% RTP, while Option 2 delivers a 98% RTP.
Option 1 grants you five enhanced spins for an additional stake, with wilds that nudge downwards when they appear on the reels. In the case of Option 2, the wild freezes in place, locking onto the reel when it appears. These can be useful features, both in terms of allowing for a higher RTP, and in increasing your chances of winning spins over the duration of the feature.
Otherwise, the game’s main jackpot stands at 1000x, which is up to £500,000 for those playing at max bets – a little more generous than your local arcade machine!
