Mostly Hot Air in Microgaming’s new online slot

Hot Air, the new video slot from the folks at Microgaming, has a free spins and a gamble feature, but this 5-reel 30-payline fruit machine doesn’t deliver the momentous flight one would expect to have in a hot air balloon or in a small plane.

Floating away isn't easy, this slot doesn't get off the ground

Try to lift off into a beautiful sunrise this February with Hot Air slot by Microgaming, but you may not get too high off the ground for this one. The pilot symbol substitutes for all wins and when the pilot is included in a win, the wins are tripled plus an extra free spin is awarded. Once above the ground, players can scan the skies for something that sticks out on this slot but nothing really does, except for the missing soundtrack and bonus round.  Set off for the skies in silence then with a picnic basket fully loaded with goodies but no real substance save for the free spins and multipliers.

In Hot Air, the scenery doesn’t prove to be much to gaze upon, but there remain reasons to play with an airplane pilot and a ballooning expert providing rewards.

The balloon aviator is the substitute and the balloon is the scatter. 10 free spins are awarded with three or more of the balloons and all wins are doubled during the free spins round.  A-K-Q-and J plus 10 and 9 make up the reels too but the sight is filled with more white space than creative imagery, and even the balloons all look the same. The background is probably the best feature stylistically speaking, with one side of the landscape bringing the dawn and the other side bringing the dusk. A balloon ride with Hot Air will be lucky to keep players interested for more than the time it will take for them to come down from taking off. Try the sports-themed Winter Gold instead.

So Hot Air ain’t so great ... try Microgaming’s companion releases for February: the romance-themed Love Potion and Winter Gold, that celebration of all things Olympic Games.
