Hydro Heat Slots

If you're wondering just how hot things might get in this slot game, we've got the answer. Hydro Heat might just suggest a theme to you if you think about it, but we'll reveal more below. If you have come across this slot game and you're thinking of playing it, spend a few minutes reading our slot review first.

Who is the developer?

We can put this one in the collection created by Realtime Gaming - or RTG if you prefer.

Does it offer a demo version to test first?

Yes, you should find you can opt for the practice game rather than the real one, which is ideal if you've never come across it before.

Have you figured out the theme yet?

It's based around the water - more specifically, a racing theme with boats. It looks like they're inflatable, which we guess would make them faster still.

How does the design stand up?

According to our info about this game, it was released in 2011. That's quite some time ago, especially in the world of slot games, so you can guess the graphics are a little dated too. That said, it doesn't seem as old as many other slots from around the same time, so it's still worth checking out.

How to play Hydro Heat slots

The game is a five-reel one, and it shows a random jackpot in the top right corner. You can look out for the wild boat, subbing for most other game symbols apart from the scattered icon appearing in red - it looks pretty hot!

Paylines don't feature in Hydro Heat

Instead, you get an all pays game, which means 243 ways over the 5 x 3 format.

Bet from a quarter per spin

The betting controls are underneath the reels, so you can start with that value or go a lot higher if you wish.

The info logo takes you through to the paytable

You'll see what all the other icons look like there too, including the lower-paying ones. It's best to get a sense of where the prize potential lies before you start playing.

The scatter will take you to a bonus feature

Three scatters are the charm here, as they allow you to select one of the available boats ready to take part in a race. You can then see where the boat comes, with a better multiplier on offer if you can finish in a better position. And then…

It's time to play your free spins

Those scatters also reward you with 15 free games. You'll receive prizes based on the multiplier you received from the boat race.

RTP info is absent for Hydro Heat

The game doesn't release this information, but that's quite usual for a slot from this developer.

Our rating for Hydro Heat slots

What did we think of this one? The theme is unusual as boats don't tend to show up that often in online slot games. However, its age does let it down a little here, giving us reason to score it at 6.5/10.

Stay alert for the progressive jackpot

We don't think it will hit the heights of other progressives from the same game studio, simply because few players now play this slot. However, you can keep track of it and see what you think if you're considering playing.

Slot game demo play is the perfect way to begin

Given its age, we think the demo is the best introduction to the game. You can see what it's like before playing for real.

Do all RTG casinos offer this slot game?

We've seen it at some, but it may not be available at all of them, so check before you join one.

Mobile access is far less likely here

It's an old game, over a decade old now, so it's unlikely to appear at mobile casinos.
