Sizzling Spins (Play’n GO) Online Slot Review

Play’n go hasn’t released many slots so far this year compared to other providers. Their last slot was just a remake of ‘Cat’s and cash’ which was not the best even after the remake. But they are finally here with a slot that has good potential. Their new slot Sizzling Spins will be hitting all sites 24th July.

The slot has a very high volatility and has 1024 ways which do increase in the free spins. Players can win up to 5000x. It is a classic 5 reel by 3 rows with a summer bbq theme which is perfect with the release date. There are some sizzling sound effects that just make you hungry when you play and the symbols being food doesn’t help your cravings. The artwork and sound effects are really impressive on this slot and work very well together for some impressive gameplay.

There are 9 regular symbols in total. There are 5 lower tier symbols which are mushrooms, cucumber slices, tomatoes, onions and corns. Basically, all lower symbols are toppings/ side salad items.  There are also 4 high tier symbols which are prawns, chicken wings, sausages, and ribs. Higher symbols are the main meat items in a bbq.

The scatter symbol is a chilli which you need to land 3 of to get the free spins feature. There is also a foil blocker symbol which will turn into a wild if it lands on a hot reel. But the symbol is useless on non-hot reels as it just blocks other symbols, as it isn’t a wild unless you can land it on a hot reel.

Hot reel feature

On each spin in the base game either reels 1,3 or 5 will turn into a hot reel. If a foil blocker lands on a hot reel it will turn into a wild. When it lands this will give a respin and the reel with the wild will be held. Another reel will turn into a hot reel but after achieving a respin any reel can turn hot not just 1,3 or 5 this is just for the first initial start.

If you land a foil blocker on the other hot reel you will get another respin. The respins will continue until 5 reels are hot or a wild doesn’t land. Any wilds that land on the 4th respin will become a 2x multiplier.

Free Spins

To unlock the free spins feature you need to land 3 chilli scatters in the base game.

Players will get to choose out of the 3 to get a number of free spins. The three options are always 8,10 or 12 free spins. So at least you are always guaranteed 8. In the free spins. The reels expand for the spins and turn into 5 by 4 rows which increases the ways very nicely. Hot reels are in the free spins but have a different use.

If you land a foil blocker on any reel it will still be a wild even when it’s not on a hot reel. But if you do land it on a hot reel it will give you a respin, which can be useful to land more wins. While in the spins the chilli symbol will appear. You collect these during the spins to increase your wins multiplier. The more you collect the bigger the multiplier. The biggest multiplier is capped at 5x though.

3 chillis collected = x2

6 chillis collected = x3

9 chillis collected = 5x

Sizzling Spins (Play’n GO) Online Slot Review

Overall I really like this slot. I think the artwork, sound effects, and gameplay all come together to make playing the slot very enjoyable experience. The volatility is very high and has the potential for some insane wins.

The features are very unique compared to Play’n Go’s others slots are great for a balance top up and have good potential for big wins even in the base game.  It can be annoying when you land a foil blocker on a non- hot reel as it can block symbols lining up very easily. The bonus game has insane potential, if you manage to collect enough chilli’s early on in the free spins you can get a nice big win. But if you don’t get enough chilli’s or wilds in the spins it could be a dud 10x win.

GamePlay- 5/5


Bonus Game- 4/5
