Developer Pragmatic Play has launched its latest video slot, Striking Hot 5.
The brand-new casino game takes heavy inspiration from the classic fruit slot machines found at brick-and-mortar casinos, but it comes with some improvements.
Striking Hot 5 uses a 5×3 grid layout with five paylines, and it has an RTP of 96.29% with high volatility, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones.
The game requires a bet of £0.05 and £100 per spin, and it has symbols like sevens, apples, oranges, grapes, cherries, lemons, watermelons, and dollar signs.
Since the game takes inspiration from classic slot machines, the game comes with next to no special features. The only traditional video slot mechanic the game has is that its Scatter symbols pay on any position.
Irina Cornides, the Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “Drawing inspiration from the timeless classic of more traditional land-based slot machines while modernising some of the gameplay elements means that Striking Hot 5 has been developed to have universal appeal.
“The title also benefits from having some of the big win potential more commonly found in online games offering players a huge max win of 5,000x within its retro gameplay, which will be a draw for new and existing fans of more traditional titles.”
The launch of Striking Hot 5 comes as Pragmatic Play continues to release new casino games, including Happy Hooves, Octobeer Fortunes, the Fire Hot Series, Down The Rails, Hot To Burn Extreme, and others, which all come with more advanced features than Striking Hot 5.
