How to Play Hot City Online Slots
The bet lines button is used to select the desired number of Hot City twenty-five pay lines. Each pay line is allowed a bet of one to four coins placed on it, which is done by using the bet level button. The coin value button will adjust the value of the coins, which can range from a denomination of as little as 0.01 up to a maximum denomination of 0.50.
The max bet button can be used to automatically bet the maximum amount with just one click. Once the betting options are in place the spin button will start the reels spinning but an auto play feature is available to set a predetermined number of spins, which will spin continuously without having to use the spin button each time. This feature is adjustable and can be stopped at any time.
The Wilds, Scatters and Free Spins
The Hot City wild symbol displays two lovers in a romantic setting. The wild symbol assists in forming winning combinations when it replaces any of the regular symbols except for the scatter symbols and the bonus symbols. When a wild symbol manages to form multiple winning combinations only the highest valued one will pay out. Two or more consecutive wilds on an enabled pay line will pay out according to the pay table.
The just married symbols are the scatter symbols. These symbols can appear in any position on the reels to reward but must land two or more times to award payouts and three or more times to trigger the Hot City free spins bonus round. If three, four or five scatter symbols appear ten, twenty or thirty free spins are given. All wins during the free spins are tripled. Scatter symbols landing during a free spin can award an additional set of free spins but these additional free spins will not pay three times for any wins.
The Hot City Bonus Game
The Hot City bonus game is triggered with three or more of the gift bonus symbols appearing on an enabled pay line. The bonus game is a shoe shopping experience where a new screen will display a dozen shoeboxes. The aim is to pick as many shoe boxes as possible to collect the mystery coin prizes each shoebox holds. When an empty shoebox is selected the bonus game ends and the main game will resume.
