Hot 81 Online Slot by Amatic Review
The Hot 81 slot machine by Amatic. It has four spinning reels and each of them features three symbols. The images produce 81 ways to generate winning combinations. The maximum multiplier for a regular combination is 10.
In this slot the Wild symbol not only replaces regular symbols but also fills in the boxes below it. You can boost your winnings for spins by playing the risk game.
Gameplay on the slot machine
Once you start the trial version, you receive 10,000 credits. You can see your actual balance of in-game currency in the bottom left corner in the Freeplay section.
The bet per spin is displayed in the Bet section. You can also change the total bet there. For this purpose click the Bet section to open the Bet scale and set the value from 10 to 100 credits. The number you select will be your bet per spin.
One more way you can configure the total bet is to click the Bet button on the control panel. The Start button sets the reels in motion. When the reels are spinning, it turns into the Stop button. If you click it at this time, you stop the spinning earlier.
To enable the auto spin mode, use the Auto Start button. In this case the reels will spin without your participation. However you cannot change the bet during the auto spins.
You can see the prize per spin above and below the reels. Under the reels you will also see the information about all actual winning combos. It includes:
- A symbol that created the combination
- A number of paylines with the respective combination
- A calculation of the award for the combinations
In order to score a winning combination 4 similar symbols must appear on all the reels of the slot. This is the only condition for creating combinations, because this slot offers 81 ways to form winning combinations. You will not be awarded for combinations of three, two and one symbol in the Hot 81 online slot.
Symbols and multipliers in Hot 81
The slot has eight types of symbols. One of them is special because it can replace any other picture. We mean a golden star with the word "Wild" that represents the Wild symbol in this slot. This image can land on any reel except the first one.
When Wild appears, it turns all the pictures located below it on the reel into Wild symbols. This only happens if it leads to the creation of new winning combinations.
Multipliers of regular symbols are multiplied by the total bet to calculate the award for the combination. See below the multipliers of the regular bets:
- Cherries — 0.1
- Oranges and lemons — 0.2
- Plums and Bar plates — 1
- Bells — 2.5
- Red sevens — 5
A golden star without the word "Wild" offers the highest multiplier. This picture can land only on the first reel and forms the combinations only if the Wild symbols appear. If you have a combination of golden stars, you receive 10 bets per spin.
To start the risk game, click the Gamble button after the successful spinning of the reels. In the risk game you have to guess the colour and the suit of the card displayed on the screen face down.
Use the Red and Black buttons to make your choice. To try and guess the suit of the card use the button with the respective suit. If you guess the colour correctly, your initial reward will be doubled. If you guess the suit of the card correctly, your reward will be quadrupled.
The amount of the current win is displayed on the left of the screen in the Gamble amount section. The cards to the right show potential winnings. However, if your guess is incorrect, you will lose your entire reward both for the risk game and the previous spin.
To stop the risk game and return to spinning, use the Collect button. Clicking the Half button credits half of the spin reward to your account.
If you click the Gamble after the spin that was not winning, you activate the automatic launch of the risk game. In this case you will go to the risk game immediately after the calculation of the spin reward. The enabled Gamble button allows you to play the double up even during the auto spins.
Options and settings
If you hit the upper control panel, you will see three buttons that look like:
- A flag
- A speaker
- A question mark
Use the first one to select one of the seven languages. The speaker icon allows you to adjust the sound effects in the slot. The question mark will bring you to the section with the main rules of the Hot 81 slot.
You can see the clock with your local time in the upper right part of the panel. Here you will also find the square brackets with the time that you spent in the current game session.
