Red Hot Wild
If you enjoy the simplicity of classic slot machines but don’t want to miss out on a range of exciting bonus features, then boy do Barcrest have the perfect compromise for you in Red Hot Wild.
Nominally a three-reel, five-payline game, Red Hot Wild can be mastered in a matter of seconds, but offers serious depth in the form of Barcrest’s “Big Bet” features. Costing substantially more than a base game spin, these grant players bonus games that benefit from a couple of interesting features.
Despite its fiery red background and generally bright colour scheme, Red Hot Wild is essentially a classic video slot both in terms of the symbols that feature on its reels and the sound effects that are used to score the game. Regular icons include slot staples like pears, cherries, water melons and oranges, while traditional liberty bells, BAR logos and lucky sevens feature higher up the pay table.
At the start of Red Hot Wild, players will be able to choose any of the game’s nine symbols to be their substitute wild, with the rarer icons benefitting from improved multipliers. Beyond this feature, players will also have access to two “Big Bet” modes – Stepping Wilds and Persistent Wilds – which cost 0.20 and 0.30 coins respectively. Both modes give players five free spins, with any wilds that appear either moving down a space each spin in the former option or sticking in place in the latter.
As a classic slot machine, Red Hot Wild is an incredibly simple game to play, with players merely needing to select their preferred wild symbol and then choose a bet amount to get started. Stakes vary from £0.02 to £100.00 per line, meaning Red Hot Wild can be played from as little as £0.10 per spin or as much as £500.00 if you’re blessed with a big bankroll. The “Big Bet” features can be accessed by pressing the “BB” button on the right of the screen, with players simply having to choose the game mode they want to be active and click on it to confirm their purchase.
Red Hot Wild does a fantastic job of putting a new spin on an old classic and, as such, it will appeal to fans of retro reels and modern video slots alike. The game is about as straightforward as it gets, but the presence of customisable wilds and the two “Big Bet” options provides an extra strategic dimension to play which will also help players on their way to some pretty tidy base game wins.
