We have said it so many times. If you are looking for the most authentic of fruit slots, look no further than Amatic’s portfolio. Ask us the reason why, and the only answer we can think of is that the Austria-based developer has been in it for twenty-seven years. We mean, while the newcomers imagine how a classic slot looked like, these guys made one!
For their latest fruit slot, the industry pioneers go for a second remake of their 2011 slot, Hot Scatter. In case you are wondering, the first remake, Hot Scatter Dice, sadly couldn’t brag any worthy alterations. Well, besides the paytable, which had dice instead of fruit symbols and the fact that players could no longer alter the number of paylines. (And yes, we didn’t bother to review that one).
On to the business of the day, what changes can we expect in the second remake? Time to find out!

Alterations, Carryovers, & Math Model
The first ‘wow’ moment is right after the slot finishes loading up. Improved graphics replace the old-world mess the previous installments came with, making Hot Scatter Deluxe look like a modern Amatic release. Kudos for that!
Gameplay-wise, about the only change you will see, is that unlike its predecessors, Hot Scatter Deluxe doesn’t come with a gamble feature. That is no biggie, though, because most of us choose to hold on to a round’s winnings no matter what. Additionally, it means that the gamble-prompts after every other spin are done away with for faster gameplay.
What has remained unaltered is the mathematical side of things, which is the reason why the Hot Scatter series brags a substantial fan base in the first place. Volatility first, it gets cranked out to near maximum like in an authentic fruit slot, meaning it could turn into a sloth right before delivering a break. The RTP, on the other hand, hits the average mark at 96%, though the accompanying hit frequency is expectedly low.
No second guesses what the symbols populating the paytable are. It’s quite the fruit bowl topped with a lucky seven that pays the premier prize (500X).
Remember the break we mentioned earlier? Well, this is where you are most likely to get it. And gaining entry is pretty simple.
Land three to five scatters anywhere on the grid to trigger an impressive fifteen rounds on the house, during which everything you win is multiplied by three. The good thing is that it’s possible to retrigger the round. Also, the scatters are payers, meaning that you will trigger payouts of 2X, 10X, and 50X every time three, four, and five scatters are lined up.
Hot Scatter Deluxe — Our Verdict
If you have not played the original, you will end up deeming the ‘deluxe’ in the title as an overstatement. That’s the truth of the matter.
Fans of the original will think otherwise, though. Hot Scatter Deluxe holds on to what they like about their favorite fruit slot while making everything faster and more attractive. Hell, they can now even go all-in with higher bets that go up to 3000 coins!
