Inspired Gaming have possibly created a game to surpass all others with Mighty Hot Wilds? We say that because instead of using a scatter symbol to trigger the main feature, they have added a little twist. You will have to read on below to find out what that twist is. But, with the combination of bright symbols, loud music and an intense single feature, is it enough to keep you coming back for more?
Mighty Hot Wilds is a 5-reel, 10 fixed pay line slot that offers you an RTP of 96.44%, which gets us off to a great start. Your reels seem to be spinning against a mix of flashing fire and icy wisps, with symbols that seem to be a stark contrast from the theme. As you play there is an eclectic mix of sounds as the reels drop, combined with the music playing in background. Weirdly the disco pop sound kind of works well with the slot and although normally it would have us reaching for the mute button, it didn’t this time!
Bet Amounts – Betting on Mighty Hot Wilds begins at just 10p per spin and can be increased up to £100 per spin. When you are ready to change your bet, click on the bet amount and a new screen will expand on top of the reels. Here you will see a wide range of bet amounts to choose from, with your current stake being highlighted in a neon purple band. Choose the bet amount you wish to continue playing with and as soon as you click it you will be returned to the reels.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Mighty Hot Wilds is a blue wispy symbol with the world wild in the middle of it. The icy wild will substitute for all other symbols in the game and contributes towards the main feature too.
Scatter Symbol – There is no scatter symbol in Mighty Hot Wilds! You may find this a little worrying, but don’t because Inspired Gaming have changed things up a little. Instead of needing a scatter to trigger the feature, you will instead enter it by landing a win that is at least x4 your bet amount. Read on below for more information on how the Hot Spins feature works and what it means for the player.
Other Symbols – Symbols in Mighty Hot Wilds aside from the icy blue wild are all old school in design. Meaning bells, fruits and even a very regal crown makes an appearance. Your higher paying symbols are the crown, watermelon, bell and 7’s. With the cherries, lemons, oranges, plums and grapes making up your lower paying symbols.
Hot Spins Feature – In order to enter the main feature, you need to land yourself a win that is worth x4 your bet or more. Once you do this your screen will immediately split into four separate sets of reels and you have entered the Hot Spins round.
Your initial winning from the triggering spin will be transferred to the hot spins meter at the right side of the four-reel set. You will see a collect button and if you choose to hit collect you will be transferred back to the main game with your winnings. However, if you choose to play you will see how many spins have been allocated depending on the winnings you brought with you into the round. Your stake is also set at the amount you won in the last round and it can be raised or lowered as you play through the round. But, you should know that as you adjust it the amount of spins you get in the round will also be adjusted.
Now, if your bet is set at £40 in the hot spins round, that means you get to spin each of the four reel sets once per £40 stake. Giving you x4 chances to increase your winnings. Here is where it gets really good though. If you land a wild on any reel position on reel set 1, 2 or 3, it will be copied onto the same position on the remaining reel sets. Thus giving you a boost on each reel set thereafter. For example, land a wild on reel set 1 in the centre position and it will be copied to the same position on reel set 2, 3 and 4 for the next spin.
Mighty Hot Wilds is so much fun to play where do we begin. It may be a very basic slot in terms of its competitors, but boy does it pack a mighty punch! That hot spins feature is insane and highly addictive. What we love about it is that you get the choice to play or pass, but if you pass you keep your winnings! We do advise giving the hot spins a play on occasion though, because there is big money to be made inside that feature thanks to the copied wilds!
