It’s clunky, looks weathered, retro to the bone, and has a progressive jackpot. This pretty much describes the Hot Shot progressive slot by Bally which is now available to both online and land casino players. The maximum cash prize that lucky players may win is to the tune of $, €, £ 240,000.00.

About Hot Shot Progressive Slot

The game comes by way of Bally, which have been creating slots machines, as well as pinball machines, for decades. Their slot machines have a look and feel that is inspired by the land casino floor.

Funny that we should call them ‘land casinos’ now, but we all know how the times have changed, so that punters can take their gaming action to the online casino.

The game at hand packs FIVE jackpot prizes, all of which are in-game progressive jackpots. How to win the max prize will be divulged just soon enough.

Hot Shot Progressive Facts and Figures

We are spinning here on a retro slot game that comes on three rows and five reels. The number of ways to win is 40 and these are always active.

Surprisingly for a progressive jackpot slot, Hot Shot Progressive doesn’t have a huge maximum for the bet, so daring players who don’t mind blowing $, €, £ 24.00 per spin raise the odds in winning the top payout whose amount corresponds to the bet.

The smallest bet is a low-high $, €, £ 0.40 per spin and that isn’t much considering how the top jackpot sum progresses if there is a win. That is one penny per payline that’s a multiplier on the winning outcomes.

Hot Shot Progressive Slot Payouts

Wins are made with three, four or five symbols of the same kind. Don’t be surprised, as there isn’t a wild symbol so that means more room for the game’s symbols which are eight in total.

Of these the most valuable symbolare the blazing triple sevens, which pay a rather chunky 100x multiplied by the winning bet. You’d need five of these to win the stated amount, while a win of four pays still a decent 25x on the bet.

Sadly, all the other symbols pay amounts that are much smaller. The red triple sevens pay 5x on the win and payouts are also possible with any mixed sevens – blazing and regular red – for which you can get 2.5x on the win.

Obviously, the Hot Shot Progressive slot is all about hte jackpot, and that one mighty symbol, so we aren’t surprised that the low payouts with the other symbols are balanced out by the lucrative symbol actually appearing on the reels often.

There are five non-paying symbols and each one is connected to the Game-in-Game bonus. Any combination of the the special symbols starts the said bonus and these symbols are Blazing 7s, Diamond Line, Double Jackpot, Triple jackpot and Seven Times Pay.

In the event, one spin is initiated on the three-reel game. If there isn’t a win from that spin, all of the positions that initiated the bonus will take a respin and make subsequent respins until at least one win is rung up.
