Where to play?
Novomatic’s Red Hot Repeater comes with 10 paylines and 5 reels. The symbols that appear on the reels are lemons, bells, lucky red 7s, cherries, strawberries, melons, pears, grapes-it’s a classic fruity slots with a top non-progressive jackpot cash prize of 2,000 coins.
It’s selling point to players is its ‘Repeat Mode’ feature and I’m afraid this is as far as it goes. If you hit a winning combination while it’s triggered payouts are subjected to multiplier wins of 10x. I played the game from my tablet which rendered the graphics crystal clear without any delays. The video slots can also be played from smartphones and desktops for free or for real cash. In the visual department the graphics are pretty basic since it’s your typical fruity machine. The symbol that offers the biggest cash prize is the Lucky Red 7s, at the maximum wager 5 of these beauties pays 50x your stake. The return to player (RTP) percentage is 96.5%.
The coin range is pretty diverse which allows low rollers and high value players to get in on the act. The reels can be spun from 40 pence up to £80. The audio of the game becomes monotonous if not ‘hypnotic’ after 30 or 40 spins-I flicked the mute button after my 15th spin.
By way of bonus modes there’s only 1 which is a tad disappointing. It’s triggered when a winning combination is hit with 3 matching icons. But, the Repeat Mode feature is activated too which results in further wins. You’ll see a series of flames in the ‘infinite loop surrounding the reels-the same amount will be won if the arrows stop on ‘Repeat’. However, the feature only stops when the arrows land on ‘Repeat’ whilst repeat wins are subjected to bonus multiplier wins of between 2x and 10x. When the 10x multiplier hits you’ll be counting notes with a smile on your face.
Red Hot Repeater exudes simplicity since it’s styled along your classical fruity machine found in pubs across the globe. In typical Novomatic fashion the visual side of the slots is the same as those found in land-based casinos. After all, Novomatic is one of the main developers of land-casino games. It’s a medium variance video slots and certainly not my cup of tea. Games like River Queen and Monkey King are far more entertaining and offer better value for money.
