Hot Chance by Novomatic
If there’s one thing that Novomatic games such as Sizzling Hot and Ultra Hot Deluxe have taught us, it is that if the developer releases a game with “Hot” in the name, then we can expect fruit symbols at the very least! Hot Chance is one of the simpler games to have made its way online and is sure to elicit some great memories among long-time Novomatic fans thanks to the use of three reels and doubled up fruit symbols.
The fruits, bars, stars and sevens can all be lined up along five win lines, although this number is entirely adjustable and you can go anywhere between one and five. We always suggest the maximum number of possible win lines and this continues to be the case here, not least because there are few enough symbols on the board to form multiple wins on a single spin.
The Hot Chance Wheel
What sets this game apart from other fruit themed titles from Novomatic and others is the inclusion of a special bonus wheel. There’s a standard gamble feature that we’re all used to by now, where you can attempt to double the value of any prize, but this bonus wheel acts almost like a secondary gamble round and the best part is that there’s no chance of losing out. The wheel has four segments, with three “up” areas and a collect symbol. If you land on up, you’ll double your prize and have a chance to continue to move up the board. If worst comes to worst and you land on collect, then you still get to keep the original prize so it’s a nice little addition that certainly enhances the excitement levels to say the least!
It’s pretty astonishing just how much Novomatic manages to cram into their fruit themed games. Many of them look simple on the surface but pack in added extras that make a real difference and Hot Chance is no different in this regard. If you’re a fan of the developer and love fruit machines then this is a gaming opportunity that is not to be missed. You’ll find the real version complete with great bonuses and extras live and ready to play when you head on over to one of the great gaming brands featured at the top right of this review.
