Now this Wombat cannot tell a lie, the Bar X Hot Spins slot title conjures up all sorts of promise, right? I have just discovered what this game is really about… pushing up the fun meter up to number 11 and preparing for a five reel adventure.
This game leaps straight from the Inspired Gaming slot cupboard of fun with a homage to fruit machine gaming.
Don’t expect free spins or the classic bonus game that are the usual fare of the slot world. Head too a game like the Jingle Spin slot or even Jungle Spirit if that’s what you’re after. Here there’s a single horse to chase, the Hot Spins Bonus game. Buckle up wombat fans, there’s fun to be had!
Look and Feel
This game has a look that’s straight off a pub fruit machine with clear bright icons that are the timeless fare of many a good fruit machine the world around. It’s a retro vibe that’s on show here and that’s what you’re here for my pals. Think of the Shopping Spree slot and add a few more bar symbols and you’ll be close.
Okay wombat fans, so I’m going to hold my paws up with a teeny bit of exasperation, a rare thing from this furry game lover, but just be ready for the slot’s repetitive electronic sound effects. You’ll be wondering whether you have a tick in your ear listening to this lot. My top tip, silence the sound effects or at least lower the volume! In the game’s defence, it’s trying to be a traditional slot.
Bar X Hot Spins Game Play
Bar X Hot Spins is played over 3 rows, 5 reels and 10 pay-lines, just like the Shamrock lock slot machine which is also from inspired. Not only that, but this fruity game will play like a dream across all your devices. You can up or lower your bet with a simple toggle icon-so far so easy.
The mighty high-value icon to keep your peepers trained for is a mega golden BAR icon : five on an active pay-line will have you whooping with joy with a x250 your wager prize. Now that’s almost good enough to have me warming up the barbie coals and inviting the mates over.
Next up are a fancy gold X, followed by a white and black BAR symbol and a red X icon. These high scoring icons will give you wins worth between x5 and x40 your wager if you play your reels right.
The lower value icons of the card deck are the Jack through King and then a blue and red lucky number 7.
The Wild is an eye-catching pink number set against a subtle gold background! You’ve gotta love it wombat fans, I do love a bit of glitz.
Hot Spins Bonus
To trigger the big money bonus action you just need to secure a line win that’s greater than x4 your wager.
The reels will expand from 5 reels to 4 separate sets of reels each with five mini reels. In this mode, you can opt to get all gung-ho and gamble your winnings, or if you’re playing it safe you can choose to collect and end the feature. What’s not to like about an easily triggered bonus game which increases your winning power and changes the tempo of play? What can I say, the best stuff comes in small packages.
During the Hot Spins mode a Wild can appear on the third reel alone, and when this happens it is replicated across the other set of reels to hopefully push your win into the stratosphere. Nice work Inspired Gaming! We like.
If you love to sit back and enjoy the view then whack the Auto-play button on and you can book into up to 100 automated spins while you try and cash in.
Bar X Hot Spins is a timeless slot that will take you on a tasty time warp to the time of fruit machine gaming on big ol’ machines. The Hot Spins bonus and the replicating Wild and miniature reels is a morsel worthy of a big bite.
And let’s face it, the big appeal is those line wins of up to x250 your wager on offer. A retro classic with some fun moves.
