Special Features

The first feature worth mentioning is the Wild symbol. It is depicted by the word Wild in a bright yellow box. This symbol substitutes all other symbols except the Bonus Scatter and Hot Sync Wild symbols. It is the most lucrative symbol in the game as if you land 5 of these symbols on a payline then you will be awarded a lovely 50X multiplier.

The Bonus Scatter symbol is depicted by a bright red badge with the word Bonus Game emblazoned across it. It only appears on reels 2,3, and 4 in the main game but if you land 3 or more of these symbols then you will trigger the Free Spins bonus game. You will be given 8 free spins for triggering it. During this feature, any Hot Sync Wild symbols landing will turn the reel hot and the reel will remain hot for the duration of free spins. This feature will play until no more free spins remain and sadly free spins cannot be retriggered.

The Hot Sync Wild symbol is depicted by the Hot Sync Wild logo and contains a red arrow set against a golden backdrop. If you manage to land 2 or more of these symbols in the same spin then you will trigger the Hot Sync Respin feature. In this game, the triggering reels become hot as extra Wilds are added and a respin will follow. During a respin, the hot reels are identical and this feature will continue until no additional Hot Sync Wild symbols land. Unfortunately, Free Spins can not be triggered in this feature.

Theme and Graphics

The game has an extremely polished presentation. It features high definition graphics that are clear and crisp. The background of the slot is quite funky looking and full of trippy colours. Symbols are neatly displayed on the reels and the layout of the slot is quite intuitive and easy to navigate. The animations are a visual treat as when you form a winning combination on the reels, the symbols will give off a cool flame effect.

The music is soft techno and a little bit mellow. It creates a relaxing atmosphere as you spin the reels and compliments the game quite well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 20 paylines, a grand RTP of 96.29% and a fantastic maximum payout of 2,848 times your original bet!

Our Verdict on Hot Sync

Hot Sync is made by Quickspin and it’s a fresh hot take on the old jaded fruit machine format. An interesting thing to note about this slot is that it is Quickspin’s most volatile slot ever released. This is mainly due to the fact that the highest payout is worth a staggering 2,848 times the total bet wagered. That payout should tempt all players to heat up those reels and play this slot!
