Hot Hit Pepper Pays

IGT

This new game, offered on IGT’s CrystalDual 27, AXXIS 23/23 and CrystalSlant cabinets, features a nine-level progressive, with each amount hit by landing seven or more “Hot Hit” symbols on the reels.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win video slot. The scatter-pay format uses no paylines, but pays for adjacent like symbols, with 243 possible ways to win on each spin.

The nine levels of progressive jackpot can be hit at any bet level, but the jackpot amounts rise with higher wagers. At any time during game play, if seven “Hot Hit” symbols land on the three-by-five reel array, the player wins the lowest progressive jackpot on a ladder display shown on the top monitor.

The jackpot amounts rise with the number of symbols landed, with 15 Hot Hit symbols landing the top progressive jackpot, resetting at $10,000 at the 250-coin maximum bet.

There also is a free-game bonus triggered by three or more bonus symbols. The progressive feature can be hit on a free spin or a primary game spin.
