Xtreme Hot Slot Review
Despite growing up deep in Southern Africa, I’m not a massive fan of the heat.
Actually, that’s a bit of an understatement. Thanks to my family immigrating here in the early 20th century, my milky white skin hasn’t had time to become accustomed to the African sun.
This means that any contact with UV rays has me hissing like a particularly annoyed vampire and burning as quickly as them too.
Don’t even get me started on the 40-degree (Celsius) days that roll around every once in a while. They have me prone, gasping like a fish out of water and begging for God to take me into his heavenly cool embrace.
So, it’s with great trepidation that I explore Xtreme Hot slot from GameArt. But with sunglasses and my SPF 50 at hand, I think I’ll be alright.
Fruit slots have had their moment for far too long. There’s nothing technically wrong with them, but I think we can do a lot more than a couple of plums and lemons crowding the reels.
Xtreme Hot slot is effectively just a fruit game, with a couple of other symbols thrown in on the 5 reels. Think four-leaf-clovers and gold bells, and you’re on the right track.
The game opens with a red-hot screen and fast-paced synth music that immediately set my teeth on edge. I prefer a chill playing experience, preferably without annoying music in the background, so I wasn’t a massive fan of the soundtrack.
The Wild is represented by a lucky 7, and it substitutes for all symbols except the purple star Scatter. The game plays out over 5 paylines, so you’ll need to bet strategically.
You can start your stake at just €0.05 and take it all the way up to €225. Plenty of wiggle room there!
The RTP is pretty average, sitting at 96.1%, and Xtreme Hot slot comes with a low volatility rate that hints at smaller, frequent wins. The maximum payout is €319,500 if you crack the 1,420x multiplier.
There’s nothing “Xtreme” about this game’s features despite the name.
Scatter wins are awarded when you land the symbol anywhere on the reels.
To gamble any win, press the GAMBLE button. Choose a red or black card. If you guess correctly, your win will be doubled. Wins can be gambled up to 5 times.
And that’s all of the features, folks!
I tested Xtreme Hot slot on both Safari and Chrome browsers on my mobile and desktop devices. It did well, with no glitches or buffering.
I was genuinely impressed by the maximum win of €319,500, particularly for a low volatility slot. It’s more than generous and could set you up nicely.
Unfortunately for GameArt, Xtreme Hot slot had me on edge from the jump. The jarring soundtrack and graphics make for uncomfortable gameplay, and the stingy features don’t help the situation.
However, the max payout is solid, and the game is simple enough for betting newbies. But If you’re looking for inspiring gameplay, I’d go somewhere else.
