Red Hot Devil Slots
The Red Hot Devil slot certainly does a good job of enticing you to the dark side. On the reels you’ll find a number of fiery symbols, including a serpent, a scorpion and the three pronged devils fork. However it’s the lady with the red hair who summons you towards her with her index finger who is perhaps the most enticing of all, while a close up of her red lips also appears as a symbol. Fiery cherries and the red seven symbols also feature in a nice nod to the more traditional games. It’s not just the images on the reels you’ll find tempting here – with a choice of 3 bonus rounds, you may find yourself succumbing to the lure of the Red Hot Devil.
The fiery depths of hell acts as the setting for this slot, with purple, red and orange flames everywhere, while embers surround the flamboyant title. The reels have a black backing, meaning that each of the symbols stand out in their bold red colouring. When a win is achieved, each of the symbols comes to life – the red dice will roll, while the serpent will uncoil and attempt to strike. A hard rock guitar tune plays throughout your time at the slot, certainly adding to the malevolent mood of the game.
Playing the Red Devil Slot
This MicroGaming designed slot has 5 reels and a fixed number of 25 win lines. The control panel is found at the bottom of the screen and this is where you’ll choose your total stake, before hitting the spin button. To win you’ll need to land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line, with the highest pay-outs coming when you hit five in a row. The red headed devil lady is the highest paying symbol at the slot, with 2,000 coins coming your way for a full house of 5, although beware, as these coins are hot. Her red lips are the next highest paying at 1500 coins while the red seven and the playing cards also pay out a thousand coins or more.
If this slot isn’t wild enough for you already, the title symbols acts as the wild. This will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Wilds become much more important during the features of the game.
A red heart is the scatter symbol and this appears on all five reels. Land two or more of these and you’ll gain an immediate cash prize based upon your total bet size, but three or more also takes you to the feature, where you’ll have a choice of the following bonus rounds:
Free Spins with Red Hot Multiplier – Here you’ll have 10 free spins with a 1x multiplier. This probably won’t excite too much, until you realize that every time a scatter appears on reels 1 or 5, this multiplier will increase by one to a maximum of 6x (10x if you activated the feature with 4 or 5 scatters). This feature can be re-triggered by landing the scatters on both reels 1 and 5.
Wheel of Fire – You’ll be presented with a wheel featuring 10 balls of fire, while the red haired lady looks on to the right (if you weren’t enticed by her already, you might be now, although the fact that she has a tail might be slightly worrisome). You’ll pick the balls of fire and hope to reveal a heart which will give you a cash prize, but if the Jester appears the feature is through.
Red Hot Wild Reels – Here you’ll have 10 free spins, where one of reels 2, 3 or 4 will randomly turn wild for each spin. However, if a scatter appears on reels 1 or 5, these reels will also turn wild – there’ll be wilds everywhere! This can obviously lead to a great number of wins and as an added bonus, landing the scatter on reels one and five will also re-trigger the feature.
The Red Hot Devil slot is one that will undoubtedly grow on you. The base game is somewhat standard and plays much like any other slot, but land the feature and this is where the game really comes to life. Having a choice of feature is never a bad thing and the fact that each of the features is very different certainly means you’ll come back again and again to enjoy each one. MicroGaming has produced a red hot game here – can you resist?
