40 Burning Hot (EGT)
EGT is home to a lot of classic fruit-themed video games, and one such game is 40 Burning Hot. Although this theme is increasingly becoming less attractive, 40 Burning Hot has a few merits, and we will explore them in this review:
The developer has gone for the 5x4 reels set-up, and up to 40 active pay lines. Among the feature present is scatters (two versions), a wild as well as a Jackpot Cards Mystery bonus feature.
Betting and Prizes
I noticed that 40 Super Hot uses a betting structure that heavily relies on a fixed value of $1. This makes it quite easy for a player to set the paylines to as many as 40, with wagers fixed on them.
Bets here are not that cheap, and the least amount for each spin is $40, while the highest that you can use per spin is $800. This means that each line can get up to $20.
With the help of some of the features like the scatters, the highest payout can get to $80,000. However, the slot also offers four progressive jackpots whose value is much higher.
For its RTP, EGT has offered just 95.93% which I find to be way too low, compared to 96% that is common on many modern slots. 40 Burning Hot is a slot with Medium volatility, which means it has some risks involved.
40 Burning Hot Slot Features
Being a classic video slot, nothing much happens with the features, and among the few that are available are the wilds.
The wild appears as a Four-Leaf Clover, and you can use it to from winnings combinations. However, the wild does not appear on all the reels, so it cannot be used on its own.
You can also use the wild as a substitute for the regular symbols, but not the scatter.
Then there is the scatter, and this one comes in two versions. The first one is in the image of a Dollar Sign. With 3 to 5 of such images landing anywhere on the reels, you will be rewarded with up to $80,000.
That kind of value comes from having the largest wager selected, the game paying 100x the wager value through these scatters.
The other scatter comes with a Purple Star as its symbol. If you get it on all three reels (1, 3 and 5), the slot will reward you with a prize of $16,000.
The last type of feature is the Jackpot Cards, which appears randomly. It comes in four levels, that contain cards. You are required to reveal three corresponding cards, and the prize will be revealed. Each suit represents one of the four progressive jackpots.
Theme & Design
40 Burning Hot doesn’t have very interesting graphics, and plenty of fruit symbols are the only thing present here.
In addition to the fruit symbols, you will also get dollar signs, gold bells, four-leaf clovers, red 7s, purple stars, plums, watermelons, grapes, oranges, cherries, and lemons.
40 Burning Hot is a classic game that appears to have geta potential. However, its low volatility combined with medium volatility makes it extremely risky.
