Where to play?
Novomatic’s Sizzling Hot 6 Extra Gold is a 6 reel, 5 payline video slot that’s of low to medium volatility. There’s no free spins feature instead it focuses on adjacent symbols that offer decent payouts.
A payout occurs when you line up 3 symbols next to each other. Basically it’s a simple fruity slot machine with a lot of spunk, the maximum cash prize that can be won on a single spin is a non-progressive jackpot of 375,000 coins. The game can be played on mobile phones and PC desktops from £0.05 up to £50 per spin. It benefits from adjacent symbols, scatters and a gamble feature.
Symbols that appear on the reels are cherries, lemons, grapes, watermelons, oranges, gold sevens and star scatters. We find it to be better than the original because there’s an extra reel which allows players to make an extra bet or buck for that matter. Essentially it’s a 6 reel game instead of a 5 reel one.
”Sizzling Hot 6 Extra Gold is a super fruity machine with loads of stacked symbols, the addition of a 6th reel makes it easier for players to land more adjacent symbols.” Novomatic
When playing the game the key is to land 5 of a kind (stacked) symbols. When you made an extra bet on your normal line the 6th reel comes into play. In other words the minimum bet per spin shoots up from 0.05 up to 0.10. The RTP or average return to player percentage of Sizzling Hot 6 Extra Gold is 95.09% or a house edge of 4.91%.
To get the most out the game we recommend that you play it with a bankroll of £40 or more. It’s important that it’s played within the ambit of your bankroll. If you’re on a shoestring budget there use the game’s in-built deposit and session limits.
The game can be played in default that’s when you just play with 5 reels, then again how boring will this be. The sixth reel can be activated by the flick of a switch, it’s the extra button in the top right hand corner. Keep in mind that when the 6th reel is activated your total bet size will be doubled, the good news is that you’ll get 6 symbols as opposed to 5. When the sixth reel is tuned on the top payout increase from 500x your stake to 1,500x. As you can see it makes a huge difference.
When symbols are adjacent to each other you’ll receive a cash prize. A 3 of a kind win is when you hit the right combinations on reels 2, 3, 5 or reels 1, 2 or 3. Another nice feature about the slots is that it gives you more opportunities to win because it pays both ways.
The scatter symbol is the star, a payout ensues when 3 or more of them pitch regardless of their position on the reels.
Double or nothing, sounds like risky business? To a degree yes (chances of winning is 50/50) but it’s entirely up to you. You can double your payout by guessing the right colour of a card-guess wrong and you’ll lose the cash you have won.
Sizzling Hot 6 Extra Gold is not a flashy affair, it’s pure and simple gameplay at its best. It’s fresh on the eye and the addition of the 6th reel adds another dimension to it in terms of payouts. It pays on every 4 to 6 spins with the odd big win after 20 or so spins. Note, it’s based purely on our own playing experience. Then again the game is for die hard fans only, it’s not our cup of tea. We prefer the Book of Ra Deluxe 6, it has a 6th reel, a re-triggerable free spins feature and wilds making it far more exciting to play.
