It’s time to get fast and furious with this next offering from NextGen Gaming. Combining dice, cards, bright lights and more, you are sure to be excited by all the glamour. Hot Roller is a fast paced, colourful slot that has two interesting features to keep things fun for all.
Hot Roller is a 5-reel, 25 pay line slot offering an RTP of 95.1% to players. Packed with casino themes, your reels spin out in front of the Vegas city scape. Symbols include things like dice, cocktails and card symbols all blinged up to sparkle, just like the lights on the Vegas casinos. Higher paying symbols include the cocktail, casino chips, roulette wheel and of course no casino game is complete without a croupier. Lower paying symbols are the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, which are all glittery and sparkly too in keeping with the theme. There are even plenty of casino lounge sounds playing along as you spin the reels.
Bet Amounts – Betting in Hot Roller begins at 1p per line in play and rises to £5 per line in play. Meaning spins vary from 1p to the maximum of £125 per spin. You will find the lines in play and the bet per line sections to the left of the spin button. Simply use the symbols on each section to amend your desired bet and then hit spin to continue playing.
Wild Symbol – A femme fatale like character is your wild symbol and she comes to life when she forms part of a win. She will kiss the dice and fling them across the screen, but more than that the wild symbol will also substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol – Hot Roller is a game based on dice, so it makes sense that the scatter symbol is a set of dice. Landing three or more of these will trigger the bonus spins feature for you.
Gamble Feature – After every winning spin you will be given the chance to play the gamble feature, should you wish. Hit the gamble button and you will be taken to a new screen to play for double or quadruple your money. In this game you will see a card turned over, you need to choose the correct colour for double your bet or the correct suit for quadruple your bet. If you choose incorrectly then your gamble is over, and you will lose your winnings and return to the main game. If you choose correctly you can choose to gamble again up to a maximum of five times.
Bonus Spins Feature – Landing three or more of the dice scatter symbol in Hot Roller will trigger the bonus spins for you. Before your bonus spins start you need to roll the set of red dice to decide how many spins you get and the single white dice to see what number multiplier you will be working with. You will be asked to roll the red dice and once they stop, the dots showing on the dice will be multiplied to get your spin total. Then you will be asked to roll the white dice to receive your multiplier which will be between x1 and x6 your bet amount. The bonus spins can be retriggered, but when you do so it will be with the same number of spins and the same multiplier that you had in the initial trigger of the feature.
Hot Roller is a fast-paced game, throwing lots of bright lights and colour your way. Main game wins come regularly enough to negate the fact that they are usually on the lower end of the pay scale. On the whole the game is pretty basic, but thanks to the nifty feature where you have the dice roll added in, it makes your forget about that. There are lots of win opportunities to be had within both the main and bonus game. But thankfully you don’t need to apply all pay lines to trigger the bonus. Which means if you want to play with less lines, you still have a good chance of triggering the feature. Our advice would be to avoid the gamble feature if you can, though we understand the draw of it. But in all honesty, you are likely to lose your winnings more by using the gamble feature, than you are to gain. Overall Hot Roller has a lot to offer a player who prefers the simpler slot games, as well as to those who love a good bonus spins feature. Only you can decide whether the game is to your taste or not, but we think it is certainly worth a little visit.
