Thunderkick has served up a steaming-hot plate of deep fried features in its latest mouth-watering slot release, Hot Potato!
Hot Potato! is a 7×7 reel slot with cluster-pays of five or more adjacent symbols forming winning combinations.
96.16 per cent
Low value symbols come in the form of cucumbers and doughnuts. These symbols can offer between x0.1 and x20 the player’s bet, depending on the number of matching combinations that land on a single spin.
Next up, soda cans and french fries depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.3 and x37.5 the player’s wager.
High value symbols are represented by burgers and a chef. When the right number of identical combinations fall in a winning cluster, these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x100 the chosen stake.
Additionally, ‘hot’ scatters can drop into play, triggering the free spins feature if three land on the same spin.
Wild potatoes can also appear, appearing either on the spin itself or after winning clusters have been formed. These wilds substitute for all symbols in the game other than the scatter, and will explode after appearing on the reels.
Cascading wins occur throughout the game, causing winning symbols to disappear after providing their payouts. When this happens, new symbols will cascade from the top of the reels to drop into their place.
When wild potatoes drop into play, they will explode to remove the nine symbols in and around it. In the 3×3 space it leaves, x2 multipliers will appear. These multipliers will then be applied to any wins that are formed within that 3×3 space after cascades occur.
If new wins are formed in those multiplier cells, then the multipliers will double, enhancing any subsequent wins that occur in the same space. This can lead to multipliers of up to x128.
In the free spins game mode, these multiplier cells will not reset in between spins, increasing the win potential massively.
