Original slot concepts, exceptional levels of creativity and innovative pay mechanics are at the core of the games coming from NoLimit City. No better proof than looking at Hot Nudge, a slot that is taking us into the world of powerful engines with super stacked symbols, nudging Hot Multiplier Wilds and mega wins of up to 2,000x stake.
All action is happening on a set of five reels, four rows and 40 fixed pay lines with an RTP of 96.29%. Play Hot Nudge for as little as $0.20 up to $100 to trigger any of the features that have the potential to produce mega wins on every spin. For the record, the maximum payout per game round is limited to $250,000.
Engine driven reels are shaking the entire screen at the start of every spin as they are revving up the speed, before coming to an equally dramatic stop. The entire game window is part of a complete engine, stretching the dark colour theme to the intricately designed pay symbols which lead to some stunning animations on winning spins, all accompanied by a mysterious mechanical soundtrack.
Hot Nudge has seven regular pay symbols, plus wilds and scatters. The main characters, King of Diesel, Queen of Steam and Jack of Punk, are 4-rows tall stacked symbols while the low-value symbols are diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades, appearing in maximum double stacks. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 2x – 5x stake, which initially doesn’t sound like much, but having them stacked on a few reels and combined with Hot Multiplier Wilds will see even smallish wins transform instantly to big wins.
A 4-row high Hot Wild symbol is included on reels two, three and four, substituting for all symbols except scatters and nudging into full view to create more winning combinations. Scatters are tiles in black and yellow marked with “Hot Scatter”, appearing on the middle reels only and lighting up on every teaser spin.
Hot Wild symbols are a bright tile standing four rows tall on reel two, three and four. Any Hot Wild appearing in partial view will nudge up or down to cover all four rows, increasing the win multiplier by x1 for each nudge. The maximum multiplier can grow to x10 when all three Hot Wilds land on the top or bottom reel positions as each will nudge three times to reach the full stack for an x3 win multiplier. A small window together with a bar of flashing lights on the right of the game window will display the total multiplier for the spin.
Hitting full sized character symbols on the front two reels will trigger the Hot Nudge feature. The engine revs up to the maximum to hit more of the same symbols on the following reels and expand them to cover all four rows if they land only in partial view. This is the best moment for the game to score the top base game win of 200x stake when King of Diesel symbols land on all reels. Add Hot Multiplier Wilds into the mix and the win can shoot up to 400x bet, up to the maximum of 2,000x bet.
Three scatters anywhere on the middle reels in one spin will award seven free spins. Don’t expect additional multipliers or special features in the round but more free spins are added for each scatter landing on a spin, extending the bonus round for more chances to hit big wins. The amount depends on which position a scatter lands as it will nudge down until it disappears from the game window adding one free spin for each nudge.
NoLimit City has delivered yet again on their pledge to turn “crazy ideas” into entertaining games. Spinning the reels on Hot Nudge is suspenseful on every engine rev-up with the Hot Wilds providing the capability to score some extremely serious wins. But don’t just turn up the engine but also your speaker volume as the dramatic soundtrack is the icing on the cake that turns every spin into a mysterious moment.
