Double Slot Options in 40 Super Hot
The EGT slot title 40 Super Hot, available at Novomatic casinos, is a direct successor to the popular 20 Super Hot. It uses the same formula: a limited number of vintage fruit-machine symbols, capable of stacking, in a 5X4 reel set with multiple paylines for more winning possibilities. The 20 paylines of the first game have been increased to 40 in 40 Super Hot, as the name indicates.
The 40 Super Hot artwork is simple, but drawn in careful detail and filled with luxurious 3D icons. The 40 paylines are fixed, but players can bet from 1 to 20 coins per payline, or 40 to 800 coins per spin. Apart from the clicking of the reels, some chords to welcome the Wild and Scatter, and brief music and fireworks on wins, 40 Super Hot is not a particularly noisy game.
Juicy-Looking Fruit Machine Symbols
In vivid 3D colours, 40 Super Hot uses only eight classic fruit machine symbols in total. These look realistic enough to eat, in bright juicy colours. The cherries, lemons and orange have equal value, winning prizes of 10, 20 or 100 credits for three, four or five matches.
The olives and the watermelon icon are also paired, winning 20, 40 or 200 credits. The bunch of grapes is the highest-paying ordinary symbol, winning 20, 80 or 400 credits.
Scatter and Wild Also Familiar
Continuing its vintage tradition, 40 Super Hot uses standard fruit machine Wild and Scatter symbols. The Wild is a bold red Lucky Number 7, and as usual it can stand in for any other symbol except the Scatter to complete a win. Matching runs of three or more Wilds from Reel 1 on the same payline also win prizes of their own: 40, 400 or 1,000 credits.
The 40 Super Hot Scatter is the traditional big gold star, and as is also customary with retro slots, there is no free spins round for it to trigger. Instead, the Scatter’s power is its ability to create winning combos in any position, regardless of the paylines. These combos pay the game’s best individual prizes: for three, four or five Scatters, the prize is 200, 800 or 20,000 credits.
Jackpot Cards Bonus an Extra Feature
40 Super Hot is linked into the Jackpot Cards bonus system, in common with a number of Novomatic titles. Four meters above the reels keep players up to date on the constantly rising levels of the four progressive jackpots, designated by the four cards suits. A Jackpot Cards round can be triggered at random at the end of any 40 Super Hot spin.
If the round is activated, the player is faced with a screen of cards, face-down. They must reveal three cards of the same suit to win the progressive jackpot assigned to that suit. These progressive jackpots can be worth tens of thousands, and even hundreds of thousands of credits. They can significantly boost the winning possibilities for players who play 40 Super Hot in the long term.
