ABOUT

Hot to Burn Extreme is the third installment of Pragmatic Play’s classic slot trilogy. Though not teeming with innovations in graphics or gameplay, the game still provides a grounded fruit slot experience to new and returning players. The gigantic jackpot is a massive improvement to the game, which can increase to a whopping 5000x the bet, the highest in the series.

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Pragmatic Play is known for being consistent with delivering shiny, well-made products with strikingly similar art styles across all of their slots. The Hot to Burn Extreme slot is no exception. Although the game looks slightly outdated in appearance, this might be intentional in keeping fidelity with hardcore, faithful fans.

Hot to Burn Extreme plays on a 5x4 configuration boasting 40 paylines, an upgrade from all of the prequels, with the original game having only 5 win ways to spare. A mix of colorful fruit makes up the bulk of the symbols, with the highest-paying premium Lucky 7 symbol worth 125x the stake for 5 of a kind.

The game’s volatility is not as extreme as its name suggests. Pragmatic Play did everyone a favor by dialing down the level of volatility from high to medium, which can prove to be a game-changer for many players. The RTP is also on the positive side of things, with the highest rating being 96.65%. Sitting on this delicious cake of a game is the metaphorical cherry jackpot of 5000x the bet, the highest paying one of all the Hot to Burn slots.

One of the two special symbols of Hot to Burn Extreme is the Harlequin/Jester Wild, which pays 125x the stake for 5 of a kind while also substituting for every other symbol except the scatters.

Scatters in the game are the Star symbols. Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters rewards players with 10, 15, or 20 free spins, respectively. The only thing worth noticing is that special reels are in place during the free spins round. Additionally, players can retrigger the bonus round by landing an extra 3, 4, and 5 scatters during it to earn 10, 15, and 20 free spins. Last but not least, players can choose to buy their way into the bonus round by paying 100x the stake.

Roshtein’s Take

Although it’s strange to see a new release with close to zero extra features, I always appreciate the generous free spins and respin options classic games like Hot to Burn Extreme have on the menu. Playing the game makes me feel nostalgic about the good old days when you could get free spins for days without worrying about too many things getting in the way. Don’t get me wrong, modern games and their mechanics are super entertaining, and I’m all for it, but sometimes it’s best to slow down and relax with games like this. If you want to chill out, this is the game for you.
