Hot Spin Hot Link is a new casino slot from iSoftBet where we get to play the fourth edition within their Hot Spin series. We have previously taken part in Hot Spin Megaways, among others, where we were treated to a feature filled gaming adventure. That time it was the Megaways mechanic that was the focus and this time they have added the Hold & Win mechanic which along with other festive surprises should create an even more intense gaming experience than before. Let's find out what you can expect to see during the spins this time.
Hot Spin Hot Link is a video slot from iSoftBet that features 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 20. The RTP is around the average, where we have an RTP of 96.02%. Hot Spin Hot Link has a hit frequency of 35.9% and a medium volatility, where you can scoop up wins of up to 3000X the bet.
Within this colorful gaming adventure, we once again get to enjoy a delightful mix of features in our quest for the bigger wins. The features are Wild Symbol, Hot Spin Wheel, Hot Link Bonus, Hot Prizes and Hot Spin Bonus Wheel.
The design of the game is based on a theme with retro vibes for slots, where you can enjoy classic fruit symbols. Like a rainbow, you get to take part in a wide range of different and lovely colors, where these retro symbols have been given a well-polished design to them which gives a luxurious feel. In the background, a fast-paced music plays, giving futuristic vibes. You can play this slot on all the device’s mobiles, notepads and desktops. You create a winning combination by landing 3 or more of the same symbol types on adjacent reels starting at the far left. The highest paying Diamond symbol and the Wild symbol pay already when you land 2 of these.
The lower paying symbols are the cherry, lemon, plum and watermelon. If you land 5 of the same symbol types, it pays between 2.5X to 5X the bet. The higher paying symbols are the bell, golden star, lucky seven and big diamond. If you land 5 of the same symbol types, it pays between 10X to 25X the bet. The game's wild symbol consists of a large golden W and the scatter symbol displays the text Hot Link along with a large mix of colors around it. Let's find out what the features do.
What is the max win in the slot Hot Spin Hot Link?
You can win up to 3000X the bet.
What features are available in the slot Hot Spin Hot Link?
The features are Wild Symbol, Hot Spin Wheel, Hot Link Bonus, Hot Prizes and Hot Spin Bonus Wheel.
The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols, except for the Hot Link symbol. Depending on whether you land 2, 3, 4 or 5, it gives a direct win of 0.10X, 2X, 5X and 25X respectively the bet.
During your spins, the Hot Spin Wheel can be randomly activated, allowing you to take advantage of a modifier or directly activate the Hot Link Bonus. The different modifiers are and do the following:
Wilds = This scatter between 5 to 10 wilds on the reels.
Wild Reels = This turns 2 to 5 reels into wilds.
Multi Win = This will activate a win multiplier showing between 2X to 25X, which is applied on the triggering spin.
Hot Link Trigger = This activates the Hot Link Bonus instantly.
By landing 5 or more scatter symbols or by landing on the Hot Link Trigger on the Hot Spin Wheel, the Hot Link Bonus is activated. You will then receive 3 respins and each time a new scatter symbol is landed, these respins will reset to 3 again.
During these spins you can successfully land link symbols, by landing them in adjacent positions they can create the sizes 2X2, 2X3, 3X2, 3X3, 3X4 and 3X5. If you land a Spin symbol within this feature, the Hot Spin Bonus Wheel feature is activated.
By creating symbols in the size 3X3, 3X4 or 3X5, you have a chance to take part in the various Hot Prizes available. Depending on the size you have created, the symbols will show different values. The final values that you have landed on the reels will then be equalized and paid out.
1X1 = You can land 1X, 2X, 3X or 5X.
2X2 = You can land 8X, 10X or 12X.
2X3 = You can land 12X, 15X or 20X.
3X2 = You can land 12X, 15X or 20X.
3X3 = You can land 20X, 25X, 30X or the Hot Prize on 50X.
3X4 = You can land 40X, 50X, 80X or the Hotter Prize on 100X.
3X5 = You can land 100X, 150X, 200X or the Hottest Prize on 250X.
If you land a Spin symbol within the Hot Link Bonus, you will be eligible for the Hot Spin Bonus Wheel feature. The different modifiers that you can activate are and do the following:
Extra Life = You will receive 3 extra Respins when all spins have been used.
Symbol Add Boost = This will add 1 to 3 extra scatter symbols on the reels.
Multi Boost = This will apply a multiplier to all scatter symbols that have landed on the reels. This multiplier then increases with each trigger that occurs.
Prize Boost = This will increase the value of the Hot Prizes by 50X.
Once again, this is a colorful and action-packed gaming adventure. Where the excitement starts already within the base game, where this time you play with a smaller reel setup than the one, we took part of within the Hot Spin Megaways. But despite this smaller setup, decent wins can be created already here with the help of the wild symbols’ combination-creating abilities, but especially by triggering the Hot Spin Wheel. This wheel is filled with various exciting things that can appear, where you can get extra wilds, wild reels, activate the bonus game or get a win multiplier of up to 25X. It is a good extra spice to the spins when this wheel is activated and if you don't activate the bonus game through the wheel, you can do so by landing 5 or more scatter symbols. There you get to take part in a Hold & Win feature, which is the big difference within this version. It starts as a classic Hold & Win feature, where you start with 3 respins and each scatter that lands will make it reset to 3 respins again. But this time, you can take advantage of the Hot Link symbols. Where multiple symbols that land can form large blocks that can display very festive prizes. Depending on the size you manage to create, different sized prizes will be able to appear, where when creating 3X3, 3X4 or 3X5 you can take part in the Hot, Hotter or Hottest prizes respectively. By landing spin symbols, you can again take part in the Hot Spin Bonus Wheel which can award great things like Prize Boost, Multi Boost, Symbol Add Boost or Extra Life.
The Hold & Win mechanic is certainly something that has been seen numerous times within slots from iSoftBet, but this time they give it a more unique touch by making it possible to form larger and higher paying symbols along the spins being made. In addition, the Hot Spin Bonus Wheel comes with wonderful subtleties that make the gaming experience much more enjoyable. As mentioned, this is the fourth edition within the Hot Spin series, but it is really refreshing that they choose to try different kinds of mechanics to this concept. It's a theme that brings a retro and well-used concept to life, with well-designed symbols and spins that provide a constant adrenaline-filled experience. There's obviously a lot that's the same within this slot compared to previous versions, but even though they add a new touch with this Hold & Win mechanic, the Hot Spin Megaways definitely felt sharper. It exploded with features combined with big wins and many ways to win. Within this slot, they unfortunately lower the potential maximum win quite a bit from the previous 50000X to now being 3000X, which feels very disappointing. The RTP remains the same around 96% which is decent, but within a slot like this where the potential to create high paying symbols is great, this now lower selected maximum win feels very poor. But if you are a fan of the Hold & Win mechanic, this is definitely a slot that should be tried.
Hot Spin Hot Link is a slot where a Hold & Win mechanic is welcomed to this Hot Spin series, but despite the reels spinning hot, you can't scoop up nearly as big a win as before.
