ABOUT

The online slot game scene is filled with candy themes, presumably since many people have a sweet tooth but Play N’ Go recognizes that if there’s something people like more than dessert, it’s a meaty, smoky barbeque. Welcome to Sizzling Spins, a slot that should not be played on an empty stomach!

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Sizzling Spins is a video slot game played on a 5-reel, 3-row grid with 243 paylines or 1,024 during the free spins game. The game makes genius use of a BBQ theme, all the symbols being food placed on an actual grill with sizzling sound effects. The game has a maximum payout of 50,000x, a default RTP of 96.49% and 9/10 volatility.

The game features 9 regular symbols that are absolutely mouth-watering: with the 5 low-value symbols represented by mushrooms, cucumber slices, tomatoes, onions, and corns, while the 4 high-value symbols are by prawns, chicken wings, sausages, and ribs. Ribs seem to be the ultimate cut of meat here as the ribs symbol pays 10x the stakes for a full line.

In the base game, The Hot Reel Feature in Sizzling Spins is a unique feature that activates on reels 1, 3, or 5 on every initial spin. Whenever a Foil Blocker symbol lands on a Hot Reel, it immediately transforms into a Wild symbol, and a respin is triggered while the Hot Reel remains in place. 

During the re-spins, another reel will turn into a Hot Reel and another re-spin can be awarded if there’s a Wild in there also. This process continues until either all five reels are hot or no more Wilds appear. If a Wild symbol lands on the Hot Reel on the fourth and final re-spin, any wins on that spin are multiplied by 2.

To trigger the Free Spins feature in Sizzling Spins, players must land three Chilli Scatter symbols on the reels. Once triggered, you have the opportunity to choose one of the Chilli Scatters to reveal your number of free spins - either 8, 10, or 12. During the free spins game, the reel set expands to four rows, increasing the number of paylines to 1,024 ways. The Hot Reels feature also applies during the free spins game, but with an added bonus: all Foil Blocker symbols are transformed into Wild symbols, regardless of whether or not they land on a Hot Reel. .

That’s not the end of it, Collecting Scatter symbols in the free spins round also increase the total multiplier:​

  • 3 Chili symbols = 2x multiplier
  • 6 Chili symbols = 3x multiplier
  • 9 Chili symbols = 5x multiplier 

Roshtein’s Take

There is no shortage of food-themed slot games out there, but none actually makes my mouth salivate like Sizzling Spins. The grill looks so realistic, the BBQ components delicious, and the sizzling sound makes for a truly heart/mouth/tummy-warming experience. It would be a shame if such a cool concept is wasted on mediocre gameplay, but luckily Sizzling Spins pulls it out on all fronts: the Hot Reel Feature and the chili multipliers are creative and mentally rewarding.
