The Heat is On is a Microgaming-developed video slot that features fast-paced gameplay based around the bank robbers and cops theme. Announced just this February (of 2017), players can expect lots of rewarding basic and special features that should increase their enjoyment of the video slot. Included in this list of features are Wilds, Scatters, and of course, Free Spins. Additionally, the video slot has an exciting storyline that features cool graphics and an eerie yet somehow soothing soundtrack. Like much of the titles they’ve developed over the years, Microgaming has made sure that the video slot is playable on both mobile and desktop/laptop platforms.
Much like a lot of the video slots these days, The Heat is On has 5 reels and 3 rows. What sets it apart though is that it has 45 generous pay lines. In order to win, players will just need to make sure that they have at least 3 similar symbols appearing on any of these pay lines. As for betting, the video slot gives players the options to change their bets per spin with coin size ($0.01 to $0.25) and coin level (1-10) meters. With these meters, players can wager a minimum of $.50 to a maximum of $125 per bet. As of now, the video slot has an RTP of 96.01%.
Another unique feature of the The Heat is On video slot is its use of two Wild Symbols. Unlike with most video slots, these Wild Symbols (one of bank robber Selina and the other of Officer Jean) function in a similar manner. Both can be used as substitutes for all other symbols outside of the Scatter Symbols (and each other). In addition, the video slot will pay out players whenever a mixture of these two Wilds form on a winning payline. The same with Wilds, Scatters can also pay out if at least 3 show up after a spin. What’s even better is that these Scatter symbols need not be on adjacent reels or start in the left-most reel to pay out players.
SPECIAL FEATURES & CONCLUSIONS
If the Scatter Symbols do show up on adjacent reels starting on the leftmost reel(regardless if they’re in a winning pay line or not), then players can enjoy the The Heat is On’s Free Spins mode. For the appearance of three symbols, the player gets 5 free spins. If the resulting spin produced four symbols, the video slot will give the player 10 free spins. And with 5 Scatter Symbols, players will get to play the Free Spins mode with 20 additional spins that should increase their’ chances of winning. Aside from these, the rules of the video slot state that if two Scatter Symbols appear on the 2nd or 3rd reel then the player will have his/her remaining free spins multiplied by 2. Now if two scatter symbols appear on reels 2 and reels during Fee Spins mode 3 then the players will have a field day since they’ll as much as 80 free pins thanks to a 4x multiplier.
