Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Hot Sync gameplay is very interesting, the slot also has quite a good potential for triggering large winnings.
- In the usual spins (absent in the bonus feature) the game can make small series of spins without winnings. Less often the slot gives wins within 15x-30x bets (the maximum winning in the usual spin was 50x).
- The bonus feature is triggered when two or more special wild symbols are shown, which triggers those reels (giving them same symbols) and also making the re-spin, which will continue until a new special wild symbol is shown on some reel, or until 5 symbols are received. Most of the time (also in re-spins), the slot gives only 2 bonus symbols, or 3, but not next to each other, for example on 1+4+5 the reels, which leads to the slot not giving big wins, and they are between 1x-20x bets. Less often, the slot machine still gives a large number of bonus symbols and very good combinations, which brings about 40x-80x total bets, the maximum win during this feature was 180x-200x.
- When 3 “bonus game” symbols appear the slot will trigger 8 free spins. Gameplay in free spins is the same as the usual spins, with the only difference being that the symbols on all reels that received wild symbol are staying the same for all of the free spins. Even with the higher chance of getting a good combination, the slot often rarely gives bonus symbols (special wild symbols that are making the reels the same), and in a number of bonus features Hot Sync gave the total winnings within 10x-80x bets. When you have more luck the bonus feature gives bigger prices in the range of 100x-150x total bets, and those bonus features in which you manage to get all reels with wild symbols. The winnings are in the range of 200x-250x (dependent on the number of spins left with full screen, and also whit the symbols are shown), and the maximum gain recorded by the provider exceeded 650x bets.
Hot Sync is not recommended playing with bonus money since it will be difficult to fulfil wagering requirements. While playing for real money, I would recommend only short game sessions in an attempt to get top combinations in the main or bonus game. We don’t suggest you play long sessions in this slot.
Personal testers opinion
My biggest winning during testing reached 323x, and in the bonus, the average payout was 32x. The prize fund is divided between the main and bonus games not evenly - 76% and 24% respectively. The probability of catching a hit is 25.83%. According to the statistic, you can expect to trigger the bonus feature in every 145th spin (0,69%). Wagering point is not good, according to the long cycle and high volatility (4,09 out of 10.)

Symbols and payouts
Since the payout size by symbols will depend on the bet size, let’s give examples of maximum prizes:
- Cherry, Lemon, Watermelon and Plum, having lined up three-five times on the line, can fill your piggy bank by 50 to 625 coins.
- Bell, Star and Seven give the winner a prize of 100 - 1500 coins.
- Blue Crystal brings 125, 625 and 2500 coins.
- Wild inscription on the golden background can replace all the images except scatter-bonus and Hot Sync Wild. Having formed its combination, the Wild symbol will fill up your account for 250, 1250 or 5000 coins.
- An additional wild symbol is Hot Sync Wild. It also appears on all reels but does not form its combinations, and only helps to obtain winnings. But this is not all of its features - if two such symbols fall on the field at the same time, then re-spin is started. Reels spin once again, and symbols on the reels, where Hot Sync elements fell, become identical. Re-spins can be extended by the appearance of two more Hot Sync elements.
- Scatter-Bonus symbol can fall on reels №2, №3 and №4. When three elements fall simultaneously, you get 8 free spins.
Hot Sync Wild offers additional advantages during free spins:
- Re-spins are started even if such symbol appears ones;
- On the reels, where was Hot Sync, images with the highest payout coefficients will appear until the end of free spins.
- Re-spins are extended with the appearance of Hot Sync symbol.
