Hot Shot slot machine, just like lucky 7s slot, is another classic brainchild from Bally Software. If you like Bally’s 3D cinematic machines, then you will enjoy this online game that is designed to give you the same traditional pub slot machine experience. Hot Shot slots from Bally easily outweigh their competitors with the same slot machine name. It may look like the traditional fruit machine with plenty of symbols, but it will definitely be a treat with five progressive jackpots.

How to play Hot shot slot machine

Hot Shot is a 5-reel 20-payliner that you may find to be involving compared to its 1-payliner counterparts. You can bet anywhere between 1 cent and $1,000, which makes it perfect for the high and low rollers as well. Its theme is more of the typical hot shot, with sevens, stars, bars, and traditional bell symbols dominating the red and fiery yellow background. You can easily see the paytable either to the left or right above the reels, and the control panel has only the spin option, pay per line control, and Autoplay. You can pay up to three coins per line. It has a user-friendly layout and is relatively easy to play

Symbols to look out for

If you land 5 blazing 7s, you get to win 5000x the line bet. While there are no wild and scatter symbols, you can still enjoy many wins by lining up similar regular symbols. The special symbols are associated with the progressive jackpots and include the Blazing 7s, triple blazing 7s (double and triple jackpot), and the Diamond Line. These are game logos and are stamped on some mini-3-reel machines.  If you land three symbols in the mini-slot, you will get a free spin and prizes ranging from a 2x-49x multiplier.

Bonuses to look out for

  • The game within a game

You can receive up to 10,000 credits on this slot machine, which is multiplied by the coins you wagered in the round. The game within a Game bonus with massive rewards is triggered by landing three or more of the classic symbols. This round will see the slots represented by symbols turn into respective mini reel-spinners, which increases your chances of winning the progressive jackpot. The jackpot is won when you hit the jackpot’s top line on the mini reels, and the progressive jackpots have credits ranging from 10 to 10,000.

  • Top wheel bonus

You can also try your luck with this bonus, which is triggered when you land three of the bonus symbols on the reels. The overall payout is between 8,000 to 400,000 credits.

  • Free games free bonus

This bonus is triggered when you line up three or more mixed symbols, and the bonus round includes two rings on the bottom bonus rings; where the inner ring has a 2x or 5x multiplier to your winnings, while the outer one pays out between 5 and 50 credits.

Where you can access it

The mobile version is available on the App store for $1.99 and has all the features as the online version. Unlike the online version, however, you cannot play the mobile version for real money.


The Bally Hot Sot slot may not have many of the traditional bonuses, but features like the three-reel minislot make Hot Shot slots fun to play. The mini reels may look complex, but the slots are actually easy to play. You will also enjoy bigger chances of hits (84.7%) rather than get discouraged with long losing streaks.
