The game board is a 3×5 reel grid with 25 paylines. The minimum bet you can place on a spin is 0.25, while the maximum is 125. This, coupled with the 5,000x maximum payout, makes for some incredible jackpot opportunities. The slot is rated as highly volatile by the developer. However, it does come with a 96.5% Return to Player (RTP), which is the golden standard. With such a percentage, you will get some good returns in the long term. The game is also developed to run on both desktop and mobile devices and is compatible with all popular operating systems.
There are 11 different pay symbols in total. The lower value ones are the standard card symbols from 10 to A, stylized to fit with the overall theme of the slot. Meanwhile, the high-value symbols include accordions, margaritas, maracas, guitars, a beautiful senorita, and a singing mariachi. There are also two premium symbols- a wild and a scatter. The wild appears as a pinata and works as you would expect. It can be used to substitute any of the pay symbols to complete a matching set. Additionally, wilds can come with a multiplier of up to 5x attached to them. Lastly, there is the scatter, which takes the form of a bundle of fireworks. Land three of these in a single spin, and you will trigger the game’s special feature.
The main bonus feature in the game are the free spins which are triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols and will take you to a new screen full of pinatas. These will start to explode, revealing how many spins you will get. While the number will vary, it will always be between 9 and 27. You will then be able to play through your free spins, during which wilds will stick in place for the duration of the feature. This, coupled with the multipliers that come attached to said wilds, create an excellent opportunity for landing big wins.
Hot Fiesta also comes with an Ante Bet feature which allows you to increase the cost of your spin by 40%. Betting this extra cash will double your chances to land 3 scatter symbols, but be careful, as the stakes will be higher as well.
As a whole, Hot Fiesta seems like a fun and exciting slot game that will provide you with lots of entertainment. There are some great features available in it, and the jackpot is no trifle either. However, the game is also highly volatile by default. This is only exacerbated by the Ante Bet feature, which raises the stakes even higher but promises greater chances of success. If you are a high roller, then this will definitely be right up your alley.
