Inspired Gaming are known for their interesting ways in forming their games and creating features. This next slot is one such game and has quite a complex main feature, that once you get your head around is pretty nifty. Star Wilds Hot Spins has a simple format when it comes to the main game, which you may think is not for you. But stick around, read on and we think once you get into it you will really find some enjoyment there.
Star Wilds Hot Spins is a 5-reel, 10 fixed pay line slot that offers a variable RTP of 95.93% to 99.83%! Your reels spin transparently in space and are packed with colourful symbols such as bells and 7’s. The soundtrack playing as the reels spin is very space age and actually is quite relaxing to listen to. Something a lot of games could do with to calm the nerves, whilst you wait for the wins to hit the reels.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Star Wilds Hot Spins begins at 20p per spin and can be increased up to £200 per spin. In order to change your bet amount, you need to either use the arrows above and below the bet option or click the coin stack. If you click the coin stack a new screen pops up with all the available bet options to choose from. Clicking on a bet amount will change your bet and return you to the game.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Star Wilds Hot Spins is the multi coloured star. It will substitute for all other symbols in the game to help form winning combinations. The star wild will only land on reels 2, 3 and 4 in both the base game and the Hot Spins feature.
Scatter Symbols – There is no scatter symbol in this game, however it doesn’t have too much of an impact on the playability. This is in part down to the fact that the bonus feature called Hot Spins is triggered simply by landing a win of x4 or more than your bet amount. But you can read more about that and how Hot Spins work below.
Other Symbols – Considering the game is called Star Wilds Hot Spins and is based in space there isn’t much connecting the symbols with the theme. High value symbols are the bell, 7’s, the blue and yellow gem shapes. Lower values are the purple, orange, green and blue squares and triangles.
Hot Spins Feature – Every time you land a win in the base game that is worth x4 or more your stake amount, you will trigger the hot spins feature. You will be awarded x4 sets of reels to play in if you wish too. Alternatively, you can bank your win and go back to the main game with your balance intact. If you choose to play the Hot Spins feature however, this is how it all works:
At the side of the reels you will see your stake amount, the number of hot spins you can play and the option to bank your winnings. Your winnings will be divided into the number of hot spins available at the current stake amount. You will see what the stake is for playing the Hot Spin when you enter the round. If you have £30 as a win and the stake is £15 you will be awarded with x2 hot spins, if the stake is £20 you will be awarded with just x1 hot spin. However, a single Hot Spin is spread across the four-reel sets, meaning you get four spins of the reels per one paid hot spin stake.
On top of that, if you land a star wild symbol on reels 1, 2 or 3, it will duplicate into the identical position on the remaining reels. Thus, helping to form more wins on the remaining reels and help to boost the Hot Spin chances. If you land any wins the prize will be added to your hot spin balance and your stake and number of hot spins will be amended automatically. You can then choose to continue playing or to claim your balance and return to the main game.
Star Wilds Hot Spins may only have one feature, but what a feature it is. The higher RTP only becomes active during the hot spins feature. So, we do advise that if you get into the feature to at least play one round before claiming your winnings and returning to the game. Overall the game is fun to play, easy to follow and there are lots of chances for wins thanks to the that duplicating wild in the feature. But also, during the main game of Star Wilds Hot Spins, wins seem to fall fairly often on the reels too and are a nice mix of high and low on the pay scale which isn’t something you always see in games of this nature.
