Hot Choice Deluxe Slot (Amatic)
Hot Choice Deluxe is a deluxe version of a game that Amatic previously developed.
The developer has retained the same classic features as well as the theme in this new development. However, there is a small change, and I will discuss that in this review:
Hot Choice Deluxe uses the common 5x3 reels set-up, and the slot offers only10 pay lines.
Considering that the slot is a classic, it offers very good features that include free spins, scatter symbols, and multipliers of up to 9 xs.
Betting and Prizes
This is one of the most fun areas, especially if you are playing the game for real money.
For the deluxe version, Amatic seems to consider all types of players going by the amount that you can use to place a bet.
To place a wager, you can use between $1 to an impressive $3,000 per spin.
With Hot Choice Deluxe allowing combinations of up to 1,000x the stake, you can make a tidy amount from just one spin.
However, the RTP is a huge letdown, and at 95%, it’s below the average for its high volatility.
Hot Choice Deluxe Slot Features
The features are not impressive in any way, however, the few that are there are great in boosting your chances of winning.
One of the available symbols is the scatter. You can use this feature to trigger a payout of up to 500x the stake. However, before this happens, you will need to land at least five of them on the reels.
Free spins are available as well and to enjoy some, you will need the help of the Hot Choice logo. This must land on the reels for at least 3, 4 or 5 times, after which you can choose the type of free spins package, as well as the multiplier that will be used.
There are several options available and these are 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier, 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier, or 6 free spins that also come with a 9x multiplier.
The free spins can be retriggered if an additional set of 3+ Hot Choice logos appear on the reels.
Theme & Design
As I have already mentioned, Hot Choice Deluxe is a classic-themed slot game. I find the storyline quite boring, as it’s already too common on most other slots.
However, many players will find it entertaining, especially those that love a good classic slot.
Most of its symbols are not unique, and it’s the same ones that we find on a majority of classic slots. These include cherries, plums, watermelons, lemons, grapes, oranges, and lucky 7s.
Hot Choice Deluxe offers a very low RTP of 95%, which doesn’t quite attract many gamers.
Most modern slots offer way much higher, and Amatic did not impress players with such a low RTP considering that the slot is also highly volatile.
However, I love the 9x multipliers, which can really boost winnings. Overall, the game is more suitable for casual players.
