I’m sure you have heard the old classic song ‘Feeling Hot Hot Hot’ by The Merrymen and who doesn’t want to have the same feeling while playing your favorite slots.
Based on Stats
At most casinos, when scrolling through the games you will come across ‘Hot Games’ or whatever lingo is used at that particular casino. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out it should be a good thing, but what does it actually mean?
Well, the truth is it does vary between casinos. While some base it on the amount of activity the game is getting in terms of players and turnover, other casinos base it on how much the game is paying out. Is the RTP higher than normal? Yes, it’s hot!
The statistics can be from the last couple of days or it can be narrowed down to only the last 24 hours. Each casino is different.
It’s All Positive
So, as you see, it’s not easy to pinpoint exactly the algorithm behind it but regardless of the reason why, it is positive for you as a player.
I decided to take a look at three lesser known casinos and see which of their games are hot.
1. Wild Tornado
So what’s hot at Wild Tornado? A quick glance shows that both Tornado Fruits and Book of Sirens have joined King Elvis as hot games.
There are more games than the image shows but I did want to give Flaming Chillies a go. With a name like that it should be sizzling hot every single day but let’s see.
Flaming Chillies is as hot as it gets, at least in terms of graphics. It is a very basic game, like the penny slots in Vegas. Normally I’m not a fan, so I’m heading into this with a bit of skepticism.
Your Extra Motivation Is to the Left
The best way to go is to land as many Flaming Chillies as possible and you can see on the left how much each of them are worth.
I managed to stick 5 of them on the reels, which gave me a very nice size win! A win like this will make you feel good about any game and it did.
Double Your Winnings
There’s also the Gamble Feature that you can use after each win. Doubling your winnings is pretty tempting and every now and then I like to give it a go. I stopped after two successful attempts as I didn’t want to push my luck too far.
For a fruit machine looking game like this, I was surprised how fun it was. It’s quick and straight to the point and by having the “chili payout list” on the left, it gives you an immediate carrot to chase.
I really enjoyed it and I played the game at Wild Tornado.
2. Fight Club
It could be due to their impeccable physique but for whatever reason, the Greek Gods seem to be on absolute fire at Fight Club.
We’ve seen Zeus throw some steamin’ house parties before at the esteemed top of Mount Olympus. You have all been granted entrance through the Gates of Olympus, where you can get a taste of life as the divine.
He’s also gathered some of his friends for an epic adventure in Rise of Olympus, which is also worth checking out.
Hot games at Fight Club
Do I have the Midas Touch?
However, today I will go to Fight Club Casino to try and find out once and for all, if I have anything that would resemble Midas Golden Touch.
Well, there’s no doubt these reels from Thunderkick have a bright, golden shimmer to them. It does help since the first impression isn’t overly exciting.
In fact, it is only when you manage to land the 3 scatters needed for the bonus round that the vibe changes and you get a feeling of there’s something special about the game.
It’s time for Free Spins in Midas Golden Touch
Golden Fairy Dust
Midas is sprinkling all of his golden fairy dust all across the entire screen as a mighty welcome to the show and as you can see, it’s a much more inspiring look.
The bonus game uses a Sticky Re-spin feature when you land a win. All the symbols involved will stay in position and if the new symbols give you another win, you can keep on increasing your win. Nice!
I couldn’t pull it off myself but if you can get 3 scatters in the bonus game, you’ll get another 10 Free Spins.
Sunset or a Golden Touch?
The only thing that could make the above screenshot look better is a bigger win. However, betting as small as I did, I can’t expect much more.
Did I have the Midas Touch? Definitely not!
Unless you get to the bonus round, Midas Golden Touch isn’t the most exciting game. It is an older game and has been around for a couple of years. I’m not at all saying it’s bad but it will not be my first choice going forward.
Are these games as hot as expected?
Winz.io has a nice mix of their hot games. Join Rich Wild on another crazy adventure in Book of Dead, fight with the Romans in Legion or treat your sweet tooth to all the candy it desires in Sweet Bonanza.
These are all good options but I opted to channel my inner gunslinger and head to Deadwood.
Features like Hunter Wilds, Shoot Out and xNudge are some of the helpers available in this bullet-flying showdown.
One of my biggest wins came courtesy of Hunter Wild. The Wild symbol is always 4 rows high but it might not always appear that way. When it doesn’t, it will be nudged one step at a time until it is on full display.
Show Me Your Badge
My biggest was because of the Shoot Out feature. This is where landing a Sheriff Badge symbol on the first and last reel.
All low symbols will turn into wilds and hopefully help you to a monster payout.
I Will Be Back in These Streets
I’ve played Deadwood before and I liked it then and I still do. Unfortunately I didn’t make it to the bonus round but I do remember it being a lot of fun.
Hopefully I can make it back there next time I play because I will be back on these dusty streets for more.
Hot or Not?
I suggest paying extra attention to games that are hot going forward as they might be able to help you more than you know.
You can ask your favorite casino what their exact requirements are for a game to be considered hot but either way, you should be able to see some sizzling wins.
