IGT has released a new slot this week and it’s called Hot Roll Super Times Pay. The name’s a mouthful and the five words strung together don’t mean very much. It’s supposed to be a combination of two of IGT’s most popular slot machine features – Hot RollTM, a bonus feature involving dice and lots of cash multipliers and Super Times PayTM, the algorithm that awards up to 10x multipliers during the base game!

This slot is a classic 3 reeler that’ll take you back to the old days – think 80s when slot machines first made their appearance in pubs and casinos. There are 20 configurable pay lines. The reels are filled with 7 and Bar symbols, the typical symbols you’d find on all of the golden oldies. Some of these symbols occupy two positions on the board and this increases your chances of hitting a winning payline.
The minimum bet you can place in Hot Roll Super Times Pay is 20p, while the maximum bet (if you’re ever crazy enough) is £600. The RTP is pretty low in comparison to the industry average – 93.46%. We’re used to playing with games offering a 96% or 97% return, so you may be slightly disappointed with the small wins in this game.
On the bright side, the multipliers are superb, especially for a three-reel slot! At any time during the game, the slot will surprise you with multipliers (2x to 5x). Don’t let its single digits fool you – the multipliers boost your winnings quite significantly. These multipliers are triggered regularly too, with the possibility of few multiplier symbols appearing on the reels at the same time. If two 5x multiplier symbols occur on the reels, you cash both and take home 10x!
Now, let’s dissect another part of the game’s name. The Hot Roll bonus is an interactive feature; IGT markets it as a player-driven feature. You’re given two dice at the start of the game, which you’ll roll by hitting the spacebar. You’ll then score points depending on the numbers facing up when the dice stops rolling. These points are later converted to cash credits when the game ends. Here’s the paytable for the bonus round:
- Roll a 2 or 12 and score 10x total bet
- 3 or 11 – 6x total bet
- 4 or 10 – 4x total bet
- 5 or 9 – 3x total bet
- 6 or 8 – 2x total bet
- 7 on first roll – 7x total bet
- 7 after first roll – ends the round
This bonus round is unlocked by spinning three scatter symbols. It goes on and on, until you hit two consecutive 7s. The theoretical limit for the number of dice rolls you get is a whopping 300! I got 15 dice rolls in a row and multiplied my winnings by a hefty amount.
It’s supposed to resemble slot machines of days past, with the usual 7s symbols, retro music and beeping sounds. To my modern eye, it’s a complete eyesore. Just look at that terrible wallpaper plastered across the background! It’s a jumble of letters in fluorescent colours and terrible fonts; it was probably put together on a Microsoft Paint 1995. The slot is available on desktop, tablet and smartphone, so you’ll be able to play this slot on whatever device you own.
Here’s a game I like to play when I review new slots. Does it rip off a concept or theme from an older slot, and which one? Hot Roll Super Times Pay is really very similar to another slot by IGT called Triple Diamond, which is another game that’s packed with multipliers and questionable artwork. Nevertheless, Hot Roll Super Times is definitely packed with a huge potential of paying out handsomely when you do hit the multipliers.
I was just about to pass the game off as another boring slot that’s created in the name of nostalgia. To be honest, there are enough three-reel slots in the world and players wouldn’t mind never seeing a new one ever again. However, its bonus feature caught my eye. The Hot Roll bonus feature promises endless rounds of cash multipliers and that’s always a winner in everyone’s books.
