Many slot players dream of making the trip to the slot Mecca, Las Vegas in the Nevada desert. Vegas is the epitome of a slot players wet dream, with twenty four hour neon lights, constantly ringing bells, free drinks and scantily clad women. Hot Roller is a slot game that brings the thrill of a Las Vegas night right to your own home.
The slot has five reels and twenty five optional paylines. Coin value per line is anywhere from between 0.01 and 10, making this slot a great one for all players and budgets. Of course the more you wager and the more lines you play, the more likely you are to hit any wins. Hot Roller has a few special features up its sleeve as well, making it a fun way to spend some time.
NextGen have definitely put some work into the overall feel of Hot Roller. The graphics are not hugely realistic by any means, but they are at least sharp and well drawn. The background to the reels is a typical Vegas skyline, with neon lit skyscrapers and loads of different colours. Spotlights search the sky above the towering buildings, calling players to take their chances within.
The reels themselves are set against what looks like Roman marble, probably inspired by one of the great Roman themed brick and mortar casinos in Las Vegas. Paytable and game rules are on a different screen, due to the fullness of the symbols on the reels.
The symbols in Hot Roller will be familiar to anyone who knows anything about the Las Vegas Lifestyle. They all represent a great night out with things like drinks and overly friendly ladies. The basic symbols are from a deck of cards, and in this instance actually fit the theme quite well.
The cards symbols have not had a whole lot done to them, they are pretty plain in different colours but do their job. Next up we have some theme-based symbols, including a croupier, a martini, a stack of poker chips and a roulette wheel.
The games wild symbol is our ever-present scantily clad blonde lady who animates when she wins by kissing the dice and throwing them at you. The scatter is the dice that launches the free spins round like in American sports betting.
Free Spins and Gamble Feature
Hot Roller is not particularly hot on the special features front. A free spins round and a gamble feature make up the games repertoire. The free spins round is launched by landing three dice scatters anywhere on your reels. Once this is done, you then roll said dice to determine how many free spins you are going to get. The two die’s totals are multiplied together to get your free spins amount. The white dice is then rolled to get your multiplier, which can go up to 6x. This feature can be retriggered and if it is you will receive the same multiplier and amount of free spins as your initial game.
The second exciting feature of Hot Roller is the gamble feature. Here you can double or even quadruple any win as long as you are not in Autoplay mode. Simply click on the gamble button and guess the colour and then the suit of a playing card. Beware, get this wrong however and you will lose your win completely.
