Euro Games Technologies (EGT) was founded in 2002 as a casino game software company and has since grown exponentially in the land-based casino industry. Although EGT is not as well-known in the online gaming industry, its high quality video slot games have helped the company to make a name for itself in the field.
Among the Australian online pokies machine games that EGT has developed, is a series of hot retro slot machine games, which include a number of different slots. One of the games in this hot series is Ultimate Hot. Ultimate Hot is a classically styled video slot that is a nostalgic reminder to many of the way slot machines were in the past. Beginner players will find this slot easy to navigate and slot machine purists will enjoy the simplicity of Ultimate Hot.
Gameplay and Symbols in Ultimate Hot
Ultimate Hot offers 3 reels and 5 pay lines. It functions in the same way as an old-fashioned fruit machine. The graphics are bright and bold and the reels take up the majority of the screen, with the buttons needed for play lined up along the bottom of the screen.
The betting ranges from a minimum of 5 coins to a maximum of 100 coins per spin. This makes the game a relatively affordable one to play. Once the player chooses the amount they wish to bet, the reels start to spin automatically.
There are a number of fruit symbols in Ultimate Hot as well as some other traditional symbols. Symbols such as cherries, lemons, plums and oranges can reward the player up to 800 coins, while they can win up to 1,600 coins if they form winning combinations with either the Grapes symbols or the Bells symbols.
The melons symbols are the most valuable of the fruit symbols as they can be worth up to 3,000 coins. Lucky Stars can pay out up to as much as 4,000 coins and the 7’s are the highest paying symbol with prizes that can amount to 6,000 coins, which is why this is one of the most potentially lucrative slots NZ has to offer.
Bonus Features in Ultimate Hot
Ultimate Hot has a bonus round that can be awarded to the player at any random point in the game. This is called the Jackpot Cards Bonus. When this bonus round is triggered, the player will be taken to a separate screen where they will see 12 playing cards all facedown.
The player must select one card at a time to reveal a number of prizes. Up to 9 cards can be selected but once 3 cards of the same suit have been chosen the bonus will end. The jackpot win will come from choosing 3 cards of the same suit.
In addition to this bonus round, Ultimate Hot also has another mobile casino game bonus feature – the gamble option. If the player, after a spin, wins an amount of up 3,500 coins, they will have the option to gamble their winnings by hitting the gamble button.
The player will then have to guess whether the facedown card is black or red. If they guess correctly then they will double their winnings but if the guess is incorrect then they will walk away from the spin with nothing.
