Pragmatic Play’s Striking Hot 5 includes no features or bonus rounds but includes hefty rewards from its paylines. 

To calculate the return values of each symbol, we have used the currency provided in the demo, which is the US dollar, as well as the automatic set wager – $2. 

The lowest value symbol in the game comes in the form of a watermelon. If the player lands two matching symbols, the game awards $2. However, if five land in a single spin then $88 is rewarded. 

Moving up higher in value is the lemon, cherries and grapes. These three symbols give $8 for a three-of-a-kind win and $88 for five. 

The next jump is to the orange and tomato, provide $20 for three matching symbols and $208 for a five-of-a-kind win. 

Finally, the highest value regular symbol comes in the form of the ‘7’, which offers the player $40 for three symbols in a single spin and $2,000 for five. 

Alongside the regular paying symbols is the $ scatter symbol that pays on any position and awards $4 for three matching symbols and $100 for a five-of-a-kind win. 


Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Drawing inspiration from the timeless classic of more traditional land-based slot machines while modernising some of the gameplay elements means that Striking Hot 5 has been developed to have universal appeal.  

“The title also benefits from having some of the big win potential more commonly found in online games offering players a huge max win of x5,000 within its retro gameplay, which will be a draw for new and existing fans of more traditional titles.”
