You can play this slot game at home or the move with between 50p and £125 per spin. As well as a top jackpot of 70,000 coins, there’s plenty of action on the reels to keep you engrossed, including a Free Spins Bonus where you can win up to eighty free games on a single spin, and wild substitutions that come courtesy of not one, but two wild symbols!
The non-stop action of The Heat is On slot takes place on the busy freeway of an unknown American city. However, blue skies and tiny cloud indicate that it could indeed be somewhere like L.A. Microgaming has designed the game so that it feels as though you’re sat in the front of a police car, driving at speed down the highway in hot pursuit of a criminal. The skyscrapers to your left and right appear blurred due to the speed at which you’re travelling. A suspenseful electronic soundtrack and the occasional wail of police sirens make the playing experience positively exhilarating.
The symbols on the reels, which also feature some rather nifty animations when they’re involved in winning combinations, include the two stars of the slot – Selina (the robber) and Jean (the cop) – who are portrayed as sexy twenty-somethings with plenty of cleavage on show. There’s also a bank, a briefcase full of gold bars, a motorbike, a police car, a helicopter, explosives, and five low-value playing card symbols (N.B., 10 through Ace).
We love the fact that The Heat is On slot game comes with two wild symbols rather than one. Selina and Jean play them, and both award the same cash amounts. Selina can substitute for all symbols except Jean and the Bank and vice versa.
The scatter symbol in The Heat is On slot is the Bank, and it awards generous cash prizes whenever it appears in view at least three times. Plus, if it lands on three, four or five adjacent reels starting from Reel 1, it initiates the Free Games Feature. The Bank symbol can present itself stacked on Reels 2 and 3 only.
Three, four or five of the Bank scatter symbol from left to right across the screen award the bonus game in The Heat is On slot, and gives you five, ten or twenty free games respectively. However, if there are two scatters on Reel 2 or 3, the initial number of free spins is multiplied by two, and if there are two scatters on both Reels 2 and 3, the initial number of free games is multiplied by four. Therefore, it’s possible to start the bonus game armed with as many as eighty free spins. Furthermore, as the scatter symbol appears more frequently during the bonus feature, it’s relatively easy to retrigger.
