Amatic’s Hot 81 slot is as simple and straightforward as they come, but it does have a lot of charm

The 81 paylines in the Hot 81 video slot can get you a maximum of 810 x your bet. And that can go up to a maximum of $€ 8,100.

The minimum bet is $€ 0.01, and the maximum bet is pegged at $€ 10 per spin. So it is a slot that is well suited to players with a smaller budget.

This fruit machine’s official payout rate is unknown, seeing that Amatic does not publish payout rates. It is widely known, however, that Amatic slots usually pay out around the 96% mark.

Hot 81 has a medium variance.

Symbols and payouts

Hot 81 is an authentic online fruit machine with traditional fruit symbols. Think of the lemon, the cherry and the orange. 4 x the lemons or oranges on the reels will be worth $€ 0.20 with a $€ 1 bet. Spinning the cherry 4 x will get you half of that with a $€ 1 bet.

The other traditional slot symbols are the higher value symbols of the game. With a bet of $€ 1, they will pay as follows:

  • Bar symbol: $€ 1
  • Liberty bell symbol: $€ 2.5
  • 7 symbol: $€ 5

The Hot 81 Star Feature

There is at least one feature to be found on this simple fruit machine – the Wild Star. The Wild Star is, what else could it be, the Wild in the game.

It replaces all other symbols when spinning a winning combination. If it drops on the reels, you win 10 x your total bet.

The Wild Star doesn’t just function as the Wild in the game. When the Wild Star Symbol drops, every symbol below it changes into a Wild Star. So in the best-case scenario, you spin the Wild Star symbol 4 x on top of the four reels and the complete screen changes into Wild Stars!

If you are playing with a $€ 10 bet, you will have won the jackpot of $€ 8100 at the same time.

Gamble feature

The Hot 81 also has the Gamble Feature – a simple matter of choosing the right colour or card symbol to double your prize or quadruple it in one fell swoop.

Our verdict on the Hot 81 video slot

If you can appreciate the simplicity and don’t like too much stuff coming at you to enjoy a simple game, Amatic’s online fruit slot Hot 81 is the right game for you.

This online fruit machine has no bonus game whatsoever, does not take away from the fact that you can win some great prizes with it. With the Wild Star, that can even go up to 810 x your bet with a maximum payout of $€ 8,100.

In our opinion, that does make it worth giving this Hot 81 video slot the old college try.

At least once.

3.5 out of 5 stars.
