The Red Hot Wild slots game can be found at online casinos offering WMS Gaming software who are a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Gaming. WMS Gaming do not publish their RTP or House Edge figures as standard. However UKGC licensed operators who now publish all game figures as standard. As such we can say that the House Edge of Red Hot Wild is 6.00% when playing less than 2 credit per spin, 4.00% when playing 2 or more credits per spin and is 2.00% when playing the Big Bet feature. As this figure has not been confirmed by the software provider we cannot confirm whether this game is configurable or not. As such this figure should be treated as a guideline only when playing at any operator that does not publish their RTP figures.
These wilds are too hot to handle!
Red hot Wild is a 3 reel game with 5 paylines.
When loading the game you will be given the option to select one of the symbols on the reels to be a Wild symbol. The selected symbol will include a win multiplier. The rarer the symbol the higher the multiplier.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Red Hot Wilds can be activated before any spin by pressing the ‘Big Bet’ button. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 2 different betting options:
- For a bet of 20 credits you will get 5 spins. During these spins if you receive a Wild symbol anywhere on the reels that reel will stop spinning and move the Wild symbol one positions down during each spin. Once the Wild symbol leaves the reels the reel will resume spinning as normal.
- For a bet of 30 credits you will get 5 spins. During these spins if you receive a Wild symbol it will remain locked in place for the duration of your Big Bet spins.
Red Hot Wilds has a fantastically low House Edge if you’re playing at maximum bet levels, but its bonus features just aren’t as entertaining as the other Big Bet style games that WMS Gaming has put out recently. It’s a good game that’s not a bad choice, but you can find far better games for the same amount from the same software provider.
