Hot & Cash Slot by EGT Review
The Hot & Cash slot is a classic game themed to fruit. It is developed by EGT (Euro Games Technology). The maximum win for a combination is 80,000 coins. The game comes with 5 reels and 20 paylines. You can see both regular and special icons on the reels — the Wild and the Scatter.
How to play Hot & Cash
Initially, you have 5,000 coins in your balance at the start of the game. The Hot & Cash slot has a fixed number of lines. It means that all the 20 paylines are active at any moment by default. You can control only one parameter of the game, the total bet size. Use 5 buttons for this:
- Bet 20
- Bet 40
- Bet 100
- Bet 200
- Bet 400
The number corresponds to the total bet in coins. If you click any of these five Bet buttons you will automatically launch one reel spin. Starting with the first reel all symbols, except for the Scatter, form winning combinations. You earn payouts for combinations of 3, 4 and 5 identical icons placed on adjacent reels from left to right.
A button with circular arrows activates an automatic mode. After you click it, the reels automatically spin with the previous bet. The repeated click stops autospins.
Use the «i» button to open the Paytable. Here you can see all the winnings in coins considering your bet. When you open the Paytable you immediately get information on a prize you can win for a combination of certain symbols.
The maximum bet in the Hot & Cash slot risk game depends on the total bet size. To start the risk game you need to win a prize more than:
- 700 coins with the total bet 20
- 1,400 coins with the total bet 40
- 3,500 coins with the total bet 100
- 7,000 coins with the total bet 200
- 14,000 coins with the total bet 400
When any winning combination appears on the reels, you will see the word Gamble in the bottom right corner of the game screen. You can start the risk game by clicking it. During the risk game you see a face-down card. On the right of it you can find buttons designed for choosing a colour.
You have to guess the colour of the face-down card. After you have made a choice, the card is revealed. If you guess it right your win for the last spin doubles. In this case the risk game goes on. If you guess a wrong colour you lose your staked win. After that the risk game finishes.
Symbols and payouts
The Wild symbol of the Hot & Cash slot is a dollar emblem. It can only appear on three central reels. This icon replaces any other icons in winning combinations, except for the Scatter. It can't form combinations of its own.
Scatter — the image of a star. You get payouts for it regardless of its place on the reels. When 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols land at once, you are paid 100, 400 and 4,000 coins respectively (if you stake the minimum bet per spin).
The size of winnings for all the combinations of 3, 4 or 5 identical regular symbols is shown in coins. Sums actual with minimum bet:
- A plum, a lemon — 10, 30 and 100 coins
- An orange, a cherry — 5, 20 and 50 coins
- A watermelon and grapes — 10, 50 and 200 coins
- Sevens — 20, 100 and 1,000 coins
If you play the full version of the Hot & Cash slot you can use an additional option: a progressive Jackpot. It has four levels. Each of the Jackpots corresponds to one of four card suits. In the top part of the game screen you can see four boxes with icons of diamonds, hearts, clubs and spades. In these boxes you can see the prize size for each level of the Jackpot.
The game with the accumulative prize starts randomly. According to the developer, the bigger your bet, the higher your chance to get the Jackpot. During it, you can see twenty face-down cards on the game screen. You have to open them one by one. Once you have opened three cards of the same suit, you win the Jackpot for that suit.
The Hot & Cash slot game is absolutely user-friendly. It has medium variance level. Simple rules of the game are comfortable for users of any experience level.
