Nothing says “slots” quite like the colorful array of fruit symbols that ride the reels of many popular slot games. Whether it’s a cool new fruit-based slot game or an traditional slot game with 7s, cherries and bar symbols, it’s hard to beat the classics.
Amatic understands the importance of simplicity better than anybody, and it’s apparent in nearly every slot game they create. That’s why they designed Hot Scatter as a way of paying homage to the early days of slots while adding some cool modern twists to spice things up a little bit. This game may not be incredibly packed with features, but it’s a solid choice if you’re looking for some good, simple fun.
Like many slot games by Amatic, Hot Scatter is a 5-reel, 3-row slot game. There are 10 fixed paylines in this game, which means your line bet is always multiplied by 10 to calculate your total bet. The lowest amount you can bet per line is 1 (10 total) and the highest amount you can bet per line is 50 (500 total). If you’re feeling especially lucky after a winning spin, you can choose to gamble away your prize double or nothing. Choose the correct card color to double your prize or choose the correct card color and suit to quadruple your prize.
Although the name doesn’t indicate it, Hot Scatter is a very fruit-based game. All but two symbols, the scatter and 7, are pieces of fruit. Payline wins only occur for matches of 3 or more of a kind in this game. In order from lowest to highest, the symbols are the cherries, the lemon and orange, the plum, the grapes and the watermelon, and the 7. The highest possible payline win with the minimum bet is 5,000—but that’s not really what this game is about.
Because there are so few symbols and paylines, the big get in this game is the scatter symbol. You’ll have more opportunities than normal to land 3 scatters which will trigger 15 free spins in this game. During your 15 free spins, each payline win you get is multiplied by 3. But that’s not all—you’ll also get a payout for landing multiple scatter symbols (up to 500). Landing 3 or more scatters during the free spins feature will trigger 15 more free spins.

If you prefer trying slot games out for free before you go spending your money on them, Hot Scatter is a good choice. This game is available for free at many online casinos—you don’t even have to register for an account. You can also play for cash, although you will have to make an account for that.
This game can be played on all of your favorite mobile devices, too. There are many instant-play versions of the game that you can play on your smartphone’s web browser, but you will need to hold your phone in landscape mode while you’re playing.
Hot Scatter has one thing in common with most of Amatic’s slot games: a very basic design. Despite this, it’s definitely still worth giving a few spins. Since there are only 10 paylines, you can bet small amounts and still have a chance to win big. And the focus on the scatter symbol in this game makes for a nice change of pace, although the payline wins are quite good, too.
If you’re not a fan of the reel sound effects used in Amatic slot games, you’re going to want to play Hot Scatter with the volume off, because it’s more of the same. The buttons and background are also recycled from their other games.
One nice thing about Amatic’s slot games is that they look good on mobile devices. Smaller screens don’t have as much room for complicated backgrounds and visual effects, and they keep it simple.
Anyone who’s looking for a new slot game—particularly something a bit different—should give this one a try.
