The Hot Shots 2 slot can be found at casinos offering iSoftBet software. iSoftBet are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to tie down some impressive branded slots game contracts. As a standard iSoftBet do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file. As such, we can tell that the House Edge of Hot Shots 2 is 4%.
Hot Shots 2 is a 5 reel slots game and each reel is 3 symbols high. Instead of paylines you form wins when you land matching symbols across adjacent reels. There are 243 different ways to win.
Theme – This is a football themed slot, with the national animal for each of the countries making up the symbols. There is an English bulldog, a French Cockerel, a German Shepard and Spanish Bull and a Portuguese Fox…
Wild – The “Football” is Wild, meaning it will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. Wilds can only be found in reels 3, 4 and 5 and when they land they can expand vertically and horizontally.
Scatters – The Hot Shots symbol is the Free Spins symbol. You need 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Golden Wilds – Golden Wilds are “Gold Footballs”, which like standard Wilds will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. Golden Wilds only appear during Free Spins, only appear on reels 3, 4 and 5 and they will expand vertically and horizontally when they land. They will also increase the Win Multiplier by 1 every time they land.
Free Spins – 3, 4 or 5 Hot Shots symbols will trigger 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins respectively. A multiplier is in place, beginning at x1 the bet and increasing by 1 every time you land a Golden Wild. The feature can be retriggered.
Ultra Bet – To play this you will be given 50 spins after spending 50x the bet. During these spins you can collect stars every time they land and if you can manage more than 5 then a multiplier will be applied to your overall win for those 50 spins. There is a meter to the right of the reels that will highlight how many stars you have collected and the size of the multiplier. You can also land Free Spins during the feature, which will be played following the Ultra Bet round.
Hot Shots 2 is an upgraded version of a previously successful iSoftBet slot. The slot is well designed and has a clear and obvious theme. The Free Spins come with a multiplier and they can be retriggered. There is a also a pay-to-play bonus will see you play against a reduced house edge if you choose to pay for it. This is a good effort from iSoftBet but is not quite of the level of some of their most recent releases.
