Hot Sync Slots

The good old fruity slots are making a comeback in a variety of options set against modern and sometimes futuristic backgrounds. Hot Sync is one such video slot that takes the sevens, watermelons, lemons and belles and turns them into a HD glossy affair combined with funky electronic beats and neon colours. Despite the classic theme, we are looking at a 5 reel video slot with some interesting features such as hot reels and respins.

How to Play

What draws your attention at first sight are the crystal clear colours and amazing quality of the graphics on one hand and the simplicity of the controls menu. All you need to do is set your bet and hit the spin button. Simple as that and we love it. When sevens, stars, bells and fruits form groups of identical symbols from the leftmost reel, you will be rewarded according to the payouts table. You will want to see five matching symbols on the paylines but even if you see four or three, it will pay off. There are 20 fixed win lines, which means that you cannot choose the number of active lines, all of them are always active. Hot Sync has two Wild symbols: a regular Wild and a Hot Sync Wild. The latter has the ability to fire up the reels and fill them with Wilds during the base game.

Betting Options and Payout

Here there is no need to beat your brains about the coin value and bet levels, everything is pretty straightforward. Starting from $0.20 per spin, you can increase your bet all the way to $100 if you feel lucky or if you like the adrenaline rush of a good gamble. The top paying symbol is the regular Wild, which will return your stake 50 times for five on a payline, followed by the diamond which pays 25 times the stake, red number 7 rewarding you with 15 times your stake for five matching numbers, while the star and the bell both pay 10 times your bet for five of a kind. The fruits represent the low-value symbols.

Symbols and Extra Features

Hot Sync comes with three special symbols in the game, two of which do not pay any money for groupings on the paylines. These symbols are Hot Sync Wild and Bonus trigger sign. Hot Sync Wild works during the base game. Actually, when two of Hot Sync Wilds are found on the reels, a respin is awarded and the reels go hot and filled with wilds. Hot Sync Wild does the same during the Free Games except that it does not reward a respin. To activate the Free Spins, you will need Bonus signs on reels 2, 3 and 4 and that is when a round of 8 Free Spins will be launched. During the free play any Hot Sync Wild makes the reel hot and adds regular Wilds.

Verdict

Hot Sync is a fun and dynamic game, which showers you with Wilds pretty frequently, owing to the Hot Sync Wild symbol which adds both wilds and a respin. Quickspin know how to create a simple and yet entertaining slot and that is precisely what they did with Hot Sync. Relying on the traditional symbols and features they have managed to make it look brand new.
