There’s something relaxing about doing away with all the complexities of modern slots and enjoying something more relaxed and simplistic. And with this EGT 2015 release 40 Super Hot, which looks clean, fruity and somewhat generic, you can do just that. We cannot comment anything about the music, since the developers did not add any. Instead, you will only hear mechanical spinning sounds, and the occasional ping of hitting a jackpot.
The background image is a repeating wooden texture, hardly anything eye-catching. The game is played on a 5x4 playing field with 40 fixed paylines. That means players cannot turn some of them on and off in order to lower their minimum bet.
There is no distinct split between lower and higher paying icons. The high-value symbols are Wild, represented by a lucky seven, grapes, a watermelon and plums – and the least valuable are lemons, oranges and cherries. Scatter is the most lucrative symbol for a five-of-a-kind win, but that is very difficult to hit. There is only one special feature which is activated randomly and is used to award the four progressive jackpots.
This is a 5-reel, 4-row game with 40 fixed paylines. Rather than having a dedicated Spin button, gamblers simply select the bet level that suits them beneath the reels and keep pressing that button over and over again. To the left of the bets, players can select to increase their credit value, as well as activate automatic spins, open the paytable, turn sound on and off and toggle full-screen. Above the reels, gamblers can see the four progressive jackpots that are ticking away at all times. All pays are awarded from left to right by following one of the 40 active paylines from the leftmost reel.
There are no special features except for the jackpots. To win them, you have to get lucky, as their activation is completely random. It can be triggered after any spin. Players are taken to a separate screen where they pick between 12 face-down cards. The first three cards of the same suit determine the progressive jackpot that you will win.
If you feel like you can increase your wins, you can choose to gamble them. You are taken to a separate screen, where you have to correctly pick between a red or black card. Guess right and your win doubles. Guess wrong, and you lose everything.
The EGT release is available on mobile devices, so you can pick up your phone or tablet, lean back into your couch and relax while playing 40 Super Hot.
