Habanero spices up its online slots menu with Hot Hot Fruit Slot.
If you agree with Robert Palmer’s famous assessment that “Some Like it Hot” (The Power Station 1985), and you happen to be a fan of Habanero System‘s spicy line-up of graphically stunning online slot machines, you’re sure to enjoy their upcoming release of Hot Hot Fruit.
Habanero chose a popular, retro color scheme, dropping vibrant images of traditional fruit machine symbols on a black background, highlighted with neon flare. Throw in some exciting features, and you’ve got another steaming hot choice for members of Habanero online casinos.
Hot Hot Fruit Slot from Habanero
Hot Hot Fruit is a 5×3 online slot machine with 15 fixed paylines. The design team chose the typical symbols for this game—the same symbols that have been found on fruit machines for decades. 7s, bars, oranges, plums and watermelons fill the reels, along with Wild symbols.
These fruity delights aren’t just hot, they’re hot-hot. The double heat comes from what’s known as the Hot Hot Feature in Habanero’s Hot Hot Fruit game. This is a random feature that can trigger after any spin. When it does, up to 7 single symbols on the screen will flash, then rotate, transforming into double symbols.
For example, in its singular position, an orange is just an orange. When doubled, it is an orange, flanked by an orange slice. The same goes for extra slices of watermelons and plums in their doubled state. Wilds can also turn from singles to doubles. The 7s and bars transform from singles to triples.
Both single and double wilds do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols. When they get together, though, great things can happen. Combining single and double wilds on the correct reels will trigger the game’s free spins feature.
To trigger 6 free spins, you’ll need to see a single wild and a double wild on reels 1 and 2. If a single and double wild also appear on reels 4 and 5, the reward doubles to 12 free games. During free games, all winning symbols become static, holding in place for the remainder of the feature. Once a winning combination becomes static, it’s guaranteed to pay out again and again with each consecutive free spin, potentially growing larger and more lucrative, until the feature ends.
Coming Soon to Habanero Online Casinos
Hot Hot Fruit is due to launch at Habanero online casinos on Thursday, February 7, 2019. That date coincides with the company’s trip to London for the 2019 ICE Totally Gaming exhibition, taking place February 5-7 at the Excel London. No doubt, the crew will be showing off its ‘hot hot handy work‘ during the event from Stand N3-243.
This latest creation is sure to be a hit with educated slot machine aficionados. According to preliminary statistics, it will come with an above-average RTP of 98.05%. It has a high variance, so the wins won’t strike too often, but when they do, their value should be tremendous.
Once the Hot Hot Fruit Slot does go live next week, it will mark the first new game release from Habanero Systems since mid-November 2018, when the company launched its festive Happiest Christmas Tree Slot. The 2-month production hiatus leads us to ponder what they’ve been cooking up for this year’s ICE expo.
