Tradition is Always Hot
It’s great that technology has brought slots to a whole new level, but sometimes it’s good to go back to basics. Novoline’s new releases, such as The Great Gambini’s Night Magic and Viking & Dragon, are great for players who are looking for something fresh and modern. However, for the players out there who like traditional fun, Sizzling Hot Deluxe is the perfect game! New games are easily overrated just because they’re new. The old school games from Novomatic will always be hot!
People were playing slot games way before the invention of the internet. The first ever slot machine was invented well over 100 years ago. Before slots became popular in land-based casinos, you would often find them in pubs, arcades or bars. You’ve always had to match up symbols on slots to get a win. Instead of giving money as prizes, the older machines used to give out candy or gum to winners. That’s why the classic slot symbols are fruits; because the symbols represented the flavour of the sugary prize! Slot games have come a long way since then. However, Novomatic keeps tradition alive with slots like Sizzling Hot Deluxe. Even a lot of modern Novomatic slots still have fruit symbols on the reels!
These Fruits Have More Fire than Juice
Fruit symbols are well represented in Sizzling Hot Deluxe. The majority of the symbols on these reels are fruit symbols. There are some other recognisable slot symbols as well. How these other symbols came to be associated with slot machines, we will never know. But that doesn’t mean we don’t all enjoy seeing red sevens and golden stars! The five reels of Sizzling Hot Deluxe are populated with these simple, traditional and colourful symbols. Not every symbol is worth the same amount of money. The least valuable fruit is the cherry and you need 2 or more cherries for a win. The orange, the lemon and the plum all come next. Then, the most valuable fruit symbols are the grapes and the watermelon. The red seven is far more valuable than any fruit and it pays out 10x as much as the grapes and watermelon!
Sizzling Hot Deluxe has 5 reels and 5 paylines. The 5 paylines only pay one way, which is pretty standard. The cherry gives payouts from two or more matches. The rest of the symbols give payouts for three or more matches, including the Scatter symbol. The Scatter excluded (because it pays from any position), the matches must follow a payline from the first reel (left to right) for a win. The golden star Scatter symbol can pay from any position! There isn’t a Wild symbol in Sizzling Hot Deluxe.
Fiery Features in this Sizzling Hot Slot
As this is quite a simple slot, there’s no Wild symbol or special feature such as a bonus round or free games. However, this slot does have a high RTP. It’s also refreshing to get wins as you play, and not just in the bonus round! When you get enough matching symbols (in the right positions) for a win, they will light up in flames! This feature allows you to easily see when you get a win. It’s quite a simple feature but you’ll really like it that they make it obvious when you win. Not a lot of slot developers do that. Unfortunately, unlike in many other Novomatic slot games on the Novoline platform, Sizzling Hot Deluxe doesn’t have a gamble option. If you enjoy playing fruity slots like this, you should also go and check out Power Stars, Fruit Fest, Mega Joker and Roaring Forties.
