Hot 4 Cash Game Characteristics
Hot 4 Cash has an irregular purple-and-blue 3X3 grid with 2X1 reels on both sides; outwardly, it forms a 2X1[3X3]2X1 grid and has reels that spin separately. There are 10 fixed paylines, ten symbols, spreading “wild” diamonds, 15 total bets, ten bet multipliers, two-way paylines during the colossal spin, sticky and spreading “wild” diamonds, free games, and respins. The bet sizes range from $0.10 to $100.00 whose self-adjusting payouts range from $0.03 to $3000.
Displayed on the starting page are Hot 4 Cash’s special features: colossal symbol, super free spins, and lucky wheels. Press “continue” to go to the user interface.
Hot 4 Cash has one special symbol and nine ordinary symbols. Special symbol: the wild-and-substitute is a glowing blue-and-purple rhombus cut diamond neon sign with an orange-and-golden “wild” emblazoned across it. During the colossal spin, the enlarged symbol is transformed into a substitute.
The glowing ordinary symbols: a red neon “7”; a green neon “7”; a blue neon “7”; a red brilliant cut diamond; a green brilliant cut diamond; a blue brilliant cut diamond; red neon cherries; green neon cherries; and blue neon cherries.
The Hot 4 Cash bet sizes: $0.10 (minimum bet size), $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $10.00, $25.00, $50.00, $70.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet size).
Example: staking $100.00 yields these Hot 4 Cash payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations, respectively. Red “7” pays $80, $600, and $3000. Green “7” pays $60, $500, and $2500. Blue “7” pays $50, $400, and $2000. Red diamond, or green diamond, or blue diamond pays $40, $300, and $1500. Red cherries, or green cherries, or blue cherries pay $30, $200, and $1000.
Four-of-a-kind of uniform color on the 3X3 grid’s four highlighted cells offers the so-called “7 Super Free Spins” that is associated with sticky “wild” diamonds. Four-of-a-kind (differently colored) on the highlighted cells unlock the Colossal Symbol feature, prompting the two bordering reels to start re-spinning; the featured symbol, which entirely covers the 3X3 grid, is transformed into a substitute during the respins wherein the wins pay left to right and vice versa.
Any four similarly colored symbols on the highlighted cells unlock the three-level Lucky Wheels feature; the slot players press “stop”, prompting the spinning wheel’s marker to randomly pinpoint either a bet multiplier or “up” to proceed to the next level as follows—level one: X5, X10, X15, or “UP”; level two: X25, X40, X50, or “UP”; and level three: X60, X80, X100, or X250 (maximum multiplier). Hot 4 Cash’s non-progressive jackpot is X2400, which ($100X2400) is theoretically $240000.00.
Among the features of its good software include: supporting mobile devices and desktops, multiple currencies and languages, and 10-1000 automated rounds that can be customized. There are retro sound effects; the theme song is seemingly Vlad Caia’s track Sidepoint. The 3D graphics are subtly animated, including: flickering, gushing coins, exploding symbols, blazing glare, and neon glow effect.
