Hot Roll Big Time

This game uses a three-reel, spinning-reel format, but it is a video slot using IGT’s “Multi-Layer Display” technology, or MLD, which uses two layered video monitors to create a very convincing 3D effect.

The base game is a 20-line slot with a maximum wager of 200 credits per spin. It offers low volatility, with a hit frequency topping out at 79 percent.

The base game features a very popular IGT reel-spinning feature, the multiplying wild symbol. There are 2X and 5X wild symbols—multiplying the payoff in line wins by two or five, respectively. Two like wild symbols on a payline multiply the win by four or 25. A 2X and a 5X will multiply the jackpot by seven. The top portion of the pay table consists of jackpots for various combinations of three wild symbols, topped by 50,000 credits at max coin for a 5X flanked by two 2X wild symbols.

The main bonus is a dice game using gesture-control technology. Triggering the “Hot Roll” feature enables an interactive roll of virtual dice.

In the bonus, players are able to slide their fingers across virtual dice on the touch screen to roll dice across the top and bottom displays. The dice-throw gesture uses a real-time physics engine to display realistic accelerations and speeds of the virtual dice as they tumble and ricochet around top and bottom displays. Players collect credits based on the accumulated value of the dice on each roll, and continue rolling until “crapping out” with a total of seven on the dice.

Hot Roll Big Time Pay Roll can be banked with other Hot Roll games, such as Hot Roll Triple Double Diamond and Hot Roll Super Times Pay.
