Hot Summer Nights Slots

Hot-Summer-NightsHot Summer Nights is a slot machine from Cryptologic that would best fit in the “naughty” category. Taking place inside an exotic dancers locale, Hot Summer Nights features a stripper as the main character, while the symbols showcase either pieces of her wardrobe, cash, beer or neon letters as playing cards. This isn’t the only slot with this kind of action inside, there are actually quite a few out there already, and it’s not nearly as naughty as it could’ve been. There is only one symbol with the girl, while the background image shows you just a couple of silhouettes.

In a game like Hot Summer Nights, the design might play a bigger role than in other titles, but you still want to get the most out of your money. That’s why I’m not that satisfied with the features it offers, triggered by the scatter and the wild symbols. This 5 reel/9 bet line game has payouts of up to $25,000.

Features of Hot Summer Nights

A bonus game, a wild (the exotic dancer) and a scatter (the logo) are the three cornerstones of the game, the three features that can make this slot more exciting.

The Exotic Dancer, a sultry redhead with a cowboy hat and dressed in a cowgirl outfit, is considered the wild symbol, a name quite appropriate in this case. There are two ways you can take advantage of the dancer symbol. You can either get this symbol multiple times on the same line and form a combo with just wilds in it (it pays up to 5,000 coins, which would be the top jackpot), or you can get it to appear as a wild. In that role, it is capable of substituting for the other symbols, hopefully providing you with some extra paying combinations along the way.

The scatter symbol has a Hot Girls Logo on it. A symbol that is considered a scatter has the ability to trigger whatever payout it might have with a minimum number of matching symbols, but without the usual requirement for them to be on a certain active line. Instead, the scatter symbols may appear in any position they want to. They are responsible for prizes of up to 100x the wager being awarded.

Bonus Round

During the bonus game, which 3+ scatter symbols can trigger, you will find the dancer in the costume of a cow girl, and as you advance from one level to the next you get the option to remove clothing items off her. With each piece of garment you remove, the payout’s multiplier goes up. It’s the naughtiest part of the game, by far, and the one that is the most enjoyable.

Betting options and jackpots

If you look at the betting options, you will notice that there are two things you can decide on. The number of lines is the first one, and it decides the number of coins to be used. You can wager up to 9 coins per spin, with line wagers going from $0.05 to $5. The bet goes up to $45.

In exchange, the slot can award up to 5,000 coins, or $25,000. That amount is winnable only for the top jackpot combo, while using $5 line bets. A Rapid Fire Jackpot is a secondary prize, which can offer you a few thousand dollars, but which is triggered at random.

Design and symbols

The design of a stripper themed slot requires a serious amount of pink to be used in it, and Hot Summer Night does just that. You get an abstract image colored in blue, pink and black for the background, with two silhouettes of exotic dancers on both sides of the reels. The reels are all white though, leaving most of the attraction to be done by the wild redhead dancer and by the various pink clothing items that she leaves behind.

Symbols: Exotic Dancer (wild, 5,000x), Hot Girls Logo (scatter, 100x wager), Beer (1,000x), Cash (500x), Garter Belt (200x), Fluffy Shawl (200x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (125x), Jack (125x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

If you’re tired of the same old Egyptian themed slots, and you’d rather play a game that feels naughty, Hot Summer Nights could be that game for you. I suggest you insist until you get the bonus game and the show included in it, it’s worth it.

This Hot Summer Nights slot is offered by all online casinos with Cryptologic software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
