Sizzling Summer Slots
Rumour has it Wombat fans, that you lot over there in the Nothern Hemisphere are having something of a heatwave. We hear it’s all hosepipe bans and relentless days of 30ºc+ heat stretching out ahead of you – not to mention gallons of Pimms being drunk and a whole load of pink-skinned Poms.
Well, you know what we say? We say: ‘You think 30ºc is hot? Then you must be a bunch of crazy galahs!’ As the highest maximum temperature in Oz was recorded as 50.7 °C at Oodnadatta Southern Australia on January 2nd 1960. Now that’s what we mean by a heatwave… In fact, if we were over there right now we’d still be sporting our thick Norwegian sweaters and matching mittens.
Still, to celebrate your ‘scorching’ summer, here’s a bunch of this wombat’s fave sizzling hot slots.
We love a good Elk Studios slot here at Wombat Towers, and they don’t come much better than Sam on the Beach, a follow up to their hugely popular Electric Sam slot.
This time Electric Sam, the woodland troll King, decides to bring his wife and daughter on holiday to the Caribbean – and why not? Even imaginary characters need a holiday!
It might only have 5 reels, but Sam on the Beach slot makes use of the Elk’s standard 243-ways-to-win format and offers up a medium variance game with an RTP of 96.30%.
A whole host of weird and wonderful characters are there on the reels to help you track down the chunky big payouts including Uncle Ted, Sam’s Rasta troll brother. This slot is all about sun, sea and sand (plus cocktails) and even has the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore as the soundtrack (mixed in with a heavy dose of steel drums, of course). Meanwhile the backdrop behind is of a picture perfect white sand beach.
There are also some very cool bonus features including the Electric Treat Free Spins where each Troll family member adds their own special extra. These include; multipliers, sticky wilds and extra free spins. And with a max payout of 500x on offer, this slot really does sizzle…
When the mercury is rising and things start to get steamy in the Outback (well actually it doesn’t actually steamy, we mainly have a dry heat in the Red Centre, but that’s a whole other conversation), I like to get my furry paws on a nice ice cream. Granted, they’re not the easiest thing to eat with my tiny marsupial hands, but still.
99 Time slot from Eyecon is all about ice cream! The reels are set on a seaside holiday background and there are 10 different ice cream cone and wafer combinations on the ice-cold reels – including double scoops, cherry topped sundaes and what looks like a tasty double choc wafer.
The most rewarding though is the classic Mr Whippy-style 99, complete with chocloate flake – land 5x of these goodies and you’ll win 200 times your stake. The wild which also doubles up as the Scatter will double on all wins it is part of, too. Yeaaahhh!
Throw in a very cool Free Spins bonus round called the Ice Cream Maker feature – where all wins are multipliers by x3 –and you’ve got the perfect slot to be playing on a very hot day. Well as long as you’ve got a corner shop nearby…
Nowhere on Earth can be as hot as Hades, fact. Not even Australia Wombat fans!
Hades is the hot and scary underworld hell-type place that exists in Greek Mythology. However, when Microgaming got hold of it, they turned a terrifying fiery inferno into a brilliant slot that is full of tongue in cheek cartoon characters and that plays like a dream.
The fun all kicks off with the game’s 3D animated hero, whose hair is quite literally on fire and this red-head and will pop up all over the reels as you play. The slot also features something called the Super Mode which is triggered off at random. You’ll know it’s coming when a job lot of blazing big ruddy flames violently shoot out of the top of the reels – so keep your eyes peeled for them. Next, you’ll get 5 free spins, and your host will go totally beserk – flying around the reels on a flame-powered rocket or getting hot and bothered in front of the reels.
After this apparent display of madness, he’ll bring you a load of Sticky Wilds that are added to the reels each time he pops up. Best of all, these burning hot wilds are in play as well as the standard wilds which means you could end with a whole screen full of things which can be very lucrative indeed!
Meanwhile, Hot as Hades slot also features the Epic Quest Bonus feature, that really is something straight out of Greek mythology. It’s a very cool multi-stage game that sees you meet Cerberus, sneak past the Medusa with a head of snakes, pick the correct clam shells to get past God of the Sea Poseidon, and if you manage all this, you might just get to meet head honcho God Zeus, in the final round where a possible 260 x your original bet is on offer. Now if that isn’t worth getting hot and sticky for, we don’t know what is…
And that’s your lot. So enjoy the sunshine Wombat fans, and remember: Slip, slop, slap!
