Knights Hot Spotz: Conclusion

Like we are used from Pragmatic Play they can choose any theme and form it into a slot that fits the setting just right. They gave us a Knight with a pig friend that he worked into sausages by the looks of it. And like always they did a good job with the design and game mechanics.

Knight Hot Spotz is a simple game with no hard mechanics to understand and a value collect Free-Spins feature we know from other games. The only difference being the possibility to upgrade the positions for better values.

So, what do we think of Knight Hot Spotz? Sadly we´ve to say the slot has not much to it. All the excitement lays in the Free-Spins feature, which ends in frustration very often. We are already used to the fact that Pragmatic Play slots almost always have a feature buy option to offer, Knight Hot Spotz is missing that. Although the Free-Spins aren’t that hard to trigger (statistically) it still would have been a nice addition. As for the base game some special features wouldn’t harm since it gets boring after a short time. On top of our critics the not so exciting max win of 2,000x is doing the slot no favor.

There are a lot of slots out there with money values to collect in the Free-Spins and if you are into that the best way to see if you will like Knight Hot Spotz is to try it for yourself.
