To call Sizzling Hot Deluxe a classic slot is probably an understatement. It is the very expression of simplicity. The symbols are all classic fruit and number symbols and there are absolutely no special ones: no wilds, no scatter symbols, no bonus symbols and no bonus rounds or side-games. The game is basically a “what you see is what you get” package.

The graphics and the sounds as well as the general feel of the game are all very modern though.

Created by Novomatic, the Austrian gaming giant well-known for its classic games, Sizzling Hot Deluxe can be found at a number of UK-facing online casinos, depending on where Novomatic has decided to lease it out to.

The game is a 5-reel, 5 pay-line slot, featuring 15 reel stop positions. The symbols are grapes, lemons, cherries, melons - straight out of classic fruit machine lore. The number 7 is of course the symbol to keep an eye on, because that’s the one responsible for the largest potential payout. Picking up 250 credits is indeed a noteworthy feat in a 5 pay-line game and that’s what the 7 is going to deliver.

Although there are no actual scatter symbols in the game, there is a star symbol which acts a bit like a scatter: it generates payouts even if the symbols are not on the same pay-line, but it does not trigger a side game or a bonus round, since the Sizzling Hot Deluxe is void of such features, as said above.

Playing the game is as simple as it could possibly get: the controls are self-explanatory. There’s a pay-table which lets the player know exactly what he/she should be gunning for. There’s also a handy auto-play feature, which allows players to just sit back and watch the game spin away without any user interaction.

Last but certainly not least, there’s a classic gamble round, which kicks in after each win and which allows players to gamble their winnings wagering on the color of the next card to be turned over from a face-down deck.

The bottom line: some reviewers decry the way too simple (and boring) nature of the game, and one has to admit, the Sizzling Hot Deluxe may not be for everyone. Classic slots purists in the UK will definitely appreciate it though, so it is always nice to have this one in the game selection.
