- Scatter Pays
Ok, I know I said there weren’t any special features, but it seems a shame to leave this section empty, but I suppose some might call Scatter Pays a feature. Scatters do not trigger a bonus round or reel modifier but pays for 3, 4, or 5 of a kind. However, matching 3 or more scatter symbols pay wherever they land on the board as they are, well, scatter symbols. Scatter symbols pay just above low value wins with 5 paying 62.5x compared to the low value 50x.
Design & Symbols
Hot to Burn probably didn’t demand too much blood, sweat, and tears from Pragmatic’s art department. The reels are floating and cover almost the entire board. The background is black but for a large orange flame either side of the reels which lick up around half the height of the screen. A series of smaller flames flicker up underneath the bottom row. Above the reels an image of what appears to be the wingspan of a large bird of prey, with the wings made of fire, on top of which sits the game’s logo in a fiery red font. There is no soundtrack to speak of, just an electronic acknowledgement of a win and the gentle flickering of flames.
Low value symbols are cherries, lemons, oranges, and plums. Medium value symbols are strawberries and melons. The high value symbol is the red seven which pays 1000x the bet size for 5 on a payline. All regular symbols pay for 3 or more of a kind from the leftmost reel other than the cherry which pays for 2 or more. The scatter symbol is a gold star.
Our Thoughts on Hot to Burn
You probably don’t need our thoughts on this game, if I’ve described it adequately then you’ll almost certainly know already if its for you or not. If you like your slots straightforward, just pure spinning and (sometimes) winning, this could be for you. The symbols are all high paying, and the stacked fruits often deliver reasonable-good wins. It’s a shame the top win is 1,000x, but with no stacked 7’s and 5 paylines, bigger wins aren't feasible. Having said that, the no-nonsense fan will understand that with a mid-variance game with a high RTP of 96.71% and no huge wins means that they should enjoy consistent, medium sized wins. For what my opinion is worth, it may suit some, but it’s fire doesn’t burn brightly enough for me.
