This is one of a new group of IGT games that capitalizes on the classic reel-spinning genre that has been the slot-maker’s bread and butter over the years. These newer games place classic reel-spinning setups in a five-reel, multi-line setup that utilizes the features normally found in lower-denomination video slots.

Super Red Hot Jackpots is a new mechanical reel-spinning series on IGT’s S3000 cabinet. The base game is a five-reel, 20-line slot with a four-level progressive jackpot—a “Hot Jackpot” resetting at $5, a “Hotter Jackpot” resetting at $15, a “Hottest Jackpot” resetting at $100, and the “Red Hot Jackpot” resetting at $5,000. Each is won by lining up five of the corresponding jackpot symbol on a payline—the top Red Hot Jackpot is returned for five of the symbols on the horizontal middle payline.

This progressive setup is accompanied by a free-spin bonus when three or more Red Hot Jackpot symbols land scattered on the reels. Additionally, there is a side bet that triggers a multiplier of 8X on certain winning combinations in the bonus round.

The Super Red Hot Jackpots series is initially placed with three popular classic IGT reels-spinners as the base games—Sizzling 7s, Double Sizzling 7s and Jackpot 7s. All three games feature several “7” jackpots of different colors that return the top wins under the jackpot combinations.
