Launched by Inspired Gaming back in 2015, Super Hot Fruits is an interesting take on the classic fruit machine style of slot game.
While this is a theme that many online slot game developers have returned to over the years, Inspired Gaming’s take is better than most.
Super Hot Fruits clearly owes a lot to the layout of the old fruit machines, and it presents with a clear, simple and attractive design, featuring three rows and a modest ten fixed paylines, and large, colourful symbols set against a fiery backdrop. The graphics are remarkably faithful to the old fruit machines, with familiar icons including a bell, a crown and a seven, along with an array of fruits, including oranges, cherries, grapes, lemons, plums and watermelons. There is also a blue Wild symbol, which can expand turning a whole reel into a Wild, and increasing your potential winnings.
Bets range in size from $0.1 to $100, and overall, this can be considered a medium to high variance game with a potential maximum win of x625 your stake, though capped at $250,000. The RTP of 94% is nothing to get excited about, but this is balanced by the Hot Spin Feature
The most distinctive aspect of Super Hot Fruits, that helps it to stand out from the crowd is the aforementioned Hot Spin feature. This comes into play each time that you line up a winning combination that is worth at least four times your stake. At this point, you can opt to collect your winnings or to try your luck with the Hot Spin.
Importantly, this feature offers an RTP of 100%, a rare thing in online slots gaming. During the Hot Spin feature, you will see four identical reel sets, and you can spin each set together. There is a minimum stake of four times your original stake, and should your bankroll fall below that minimum, the feature will come to an end. You also have the option of increasing your bet to $400.
You can play 50 Hot Spins in total, and each time you get a win, you will be rewarded with another Hot Spin, the total remaining being recorded next to the Spin button. You can also choose to collect at any time to take your winnings and exit the Hot Spin round.
The other interesting feature here is a stacked Wild that can land when you’re playing the base game or the Hot Spin. The Wild will occur on the central reel, and will then fill the reel, though if it comes up during the Hot Spin, it will be duplicated across all reel sets.
The fruit machine genre is not exactly original, but Inspired has done a good job of breathing new life into the theme with a colourful, entertaining slot that has enough to offer in terms of its identical reel slot and Hot Spin feature to keep players of all experience levels engaged.
