We're sure a few people have made up a few songs about the Megaways mechanic you find in slots online, much the same as football fans make up songs about their favourite players. Megaways has likely been a source of joy for millions around the world, and now it's been used by Inspired Gaming in the new Super Hot Fruits Megaways slot. You might find this game a little underwhelming due to the lack of quite a few customary extras. But it does host something called Hot Spins. Let's check it out.
Super Hot Fruits Megaways is a sequel to the original Super Hot Fruits, and carries the exact same look and feel. There's nothing exciting, simply 5 reels x 4 rows upon a red background. The fruit theme comes from a selection of fruits acting as symbols. There aren't any cascading reels, despite the Meagways, and the most paylines active at any given point during gameplay is 16,807 - much lower than the typical number of paylines in Megaways.
Something that does make up for the high-profile absences is that Adjacent Pays is present. This means that it doesn't matter where on the grid the symbols form winning combos - they pay left to right and right to left. If you're feeling very lucky, then you could strive for the maximum potential reward of up to 10,000x your stake. Obviously, the bigger the stake, the bigger the possible return.
As previously mentioned, and perhaps a slight giveaway thanks to the title Super Hot Fruits Megaways, the majority of the symbols are fruits. There's watermelon, plums, grapes, lemon, oranges and cherries. The higher-paying symbols include bells, a red 7, a blue 7 and, the highest paying of all, a crown.
The one and only special symbol is the wild, and this one acts as all other symbols to help complete winning combos.
This is where things either get really hot for you, or could serve as a damp squib. There is only one bonus feature, and it isn't something straightforward like free spins, but rather something that still involves risk on the side of the player. This is called Hot Spins and is triggered on any win that exceeds 4x your stake on a possible win.
You'll be offered the chance for a Hot Spins round, which sees the one grid split into four identical sets of reels. This round will set you back 4x the amount of a normal spin, but obviously, the chances of a win are heightened. If a wild lands during hot spins, it will expand to cover the whole reels across all four grids.
This Inspired Gaming slot machine can be an attractive prospect, but most players will surely miss the presence of more conventional bonus features, even if online slots with unique features, such as Super Hot Fruits Megaways, are worth playing for the experience. However, if you like the Megaways mechanic, why not also try Twin Spin Megaways, Dynamite Riches Megaways and Maze Escape Megaways which are all available at Gala Bingo.
