Sizzling Hot Deluxe is something of a rarity in the Novomatic slots catalogue. Yes, it sits squarely in with a long line of easy to play classic fruit machines but, it’s pretty low variance. I’m all for variety and if you want something which has the traditional Novomatic feel, the simplicity of a fruity and a relatively harmless impact to your bankroll, this is a top choice. Of course, it doesn’t have the flair and pizazz of big branded slots from the likes of IGT and WMS but, that isn’t what you play this type of game for! There’s plenty of big action titles out there like Family Guy or Fantastic 4 if that is your cup of tea.
Although the Sizzling Hot Deluxe slot is in essence, a fruit machine, it’s structure is very typical 5x3 reel video slot in format. There are just five pay-lines on offer and only eight symbols on the in game pay-table. Part of the appeal of these slots is how easy they are to play for slot players of all experience levels, those in a land casino on holiday just having a quick splash can quickly get to grips with them for instance. The basic structure of the game also makes it incredibly accessible, it’s far from graphics intensive so even older mobile devices work well with it and even the most basic of internet connections should allow you to play it online seamlessly.
The game might be classed as low to medium variance but, it does have some potential for big wins. This is mainly found in the huge disparity between the value of the symbol combinations. Take the high paying sizzling hot sevens for example. Three of a kind nets you just 20x but, that jumps to 200x for a four of a kind group and up to an unbelievable 1000x for a full five set. It’s nice to know that even though the game is fairly benign, you can occasionally score big with it. This applies right the way down the pay-table too, with up to 40x your total stake on offer for five of the lowest value symbols, the cherries.
There are no free spins features on offer on the game and even the scatter award, though nice to have, pays less than the sevens with a 50x max win for all five, they also only pay out from x3 or more so you lose the two symbol pay-outs possible on many fruit machines. Overall, as a pretty committed gambler I’d lean more towards Novomatic titles like Spinning Stars and Power stars if I wanted something simple to play. However, both of those games are decidedly high variance so if you just want something simple and not very dangerous, I can see why Sizzling Hot Deluxe has such a good following.
