Special Features

The first feature to discuss is that this game features a massive 243 payways where wins are formed by landing adjacent symbol combinations from left to right. With so many ways to form winning combinations on the reels, you will be cooking up a storm in no time at all!

As you play the game, you will notice that one reel will become hot on the BBQ grill and this is referred to as a Hot Reel. Hot Reels appear on reels 1, 3, and 5 on every spin and when you land a Foil Blocker symbol when a reel is hot then it will transform into a Wild symbol. You will then be awarded a Respin in which the Hot Reel is held and if you land another Wild on a new Hot Reel then you will be given another Respin. The Respins continue until all 5 reels become Hot Reels or until no more Wilds land. During Respins, any reel can become a Hot Reel and if a Wild lands on the Hot Reel on the 4th and final Respin then any wins on that Respin are nicely doubled with a 2X multiplier.

The Wild symbol in this game is illustrated by the word ‘Wild’ inside of a piece of foil containing some meat and veg. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter and only appears on the reels when the Foil Blocker symbol lands on a Hot Reel.

The Scatter symbol is represented by an image of a sizzling hot chilli. Land 3 or more of these symbols on the reels to trigger the Free Spins bonus game. In this fun feature, you get to choose from a bunch of Chilli symbols to reveal 8, 10, or 12 Free Spins and the reels will expand to 4 rows high to increase the number of payways from 243 all the way up to 1,024! Hot Reels are active on any reel in Free Spins and Foil Blocker symbols can also trigger Wilds on any reels. Keep a close eye on the Chilli Scatter symbols in this feature as they award multipliers instead of the usual extra Free Spins. Collect 3, 6, or 9 of these symbols and your Free Spins winnings will be multiplied by 2X, 3X, or 5X.

Theme and Graphics

The presentation of the game is superb as it takes place right on top of a real BBQ grill that’s covered in pieces of burning hot coal. Symbols consist of an assortment of meats and vegetables such as Mushrooms, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Ribs, Wings, and Prawns. I am not going to lie but they almost look good enough to eat! The animations are smooth as symbols light up when part of a winning combination and I particularly liked how the reels become hot on each spin. It really enhances the gameplay and makes it feel like you really are cooking up something very tasty on your very own BBQ grill.

The music is kind of soft rock with heavy guitar sounds used whenever you land a win on the reels. It complements the fast-paced gameplay really well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 243 payways, a high RTP of 96.49%, and a fantastic maximum payout of 5,000X your initial bet.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Sizzling Spins

This tasty online slot is made by Play’n GO and is definitely one BBQ worth attending! It features outstanding graphics replicating a BBQ environment superbly and there is a nice range of bonus features to keep players coming back for more and more action. The Hot Reels keeps things interesting on the reels and it’s great you can get Respins whenever a Foil Blocker symbol pops up and turns Wild. The standout feature of this game is of course Free Spins since the payways increase to a staggering 1,024 and you have the potential to land a 5X Multiplier on every Free Spin. Variance-wise, I found this slot to be High so you will definitely have to sit through quite a few dry spins and spend lots of bankroll in the process before eventually landing a decent enough return on the reels.
