The most attractive part of playing any online slot is looking to win a jackpot, and that's exactly what the 5 Burning Heart slot by EGT captures. The whole point of the game is to reach a bonus feature where you'll win one of four different progressive jackpots. However, the setting for the game will remind you of older, three-reel fruit machines, but it has much better graphics than those games ever dreamed of having. The end result is a niche type of game that will give players plenty to get excited about if they like these types of themes and features.
Format and Layout
The first thing to keep in mind is that this is a video slot, so it has five reels with three rows of symbols. However, it's based on a lot of classic-style themes, so it only has five paylines. This is by design, and it gives it a sort of feel that will really appeal to people who don't mind not having dozens of ways to win on each and every spin.
Adjusting the betting is really simple. You can bet one, two, five, 10 or 20 coins on each payline on each spin, and you have different coin sizes to pick from. This means you get a very wide range of bet sizes to pick from, and you'll have no problem with finding one that works for what you're comfortable with in terms of your bankroll and your tolerance for risk.
Double Scatter Symbols
The very first thing you need to know about this game before you start to play it is that there are two different scatter symbols, and unless you know what they are ahead of time, it's not readily apparent. One scatter symbol is the dollar sign, and it appears on every one of the five reels like most scatters do in other games. It uses simple payouts that start with 500x for five of a kind. You'll have a chance to win 100x for four of a kind, and it's worth 25x for three.
The second scatter is a bit different because it only shows up on the first, middle and last reels. You'll only get a win with this scatter for three of a kind, and this symbol is the purple star with a gold outline. Both of these symbols pay no matter where the symbols line up, and since they don't have to hit the paylines, they're worth more than the other symbols in a way. These wins are also based on multiples of the total size of your overall wager.
Appear on the second, third and fourth reels only is the heart symbol. It's a wild in this slot, and it counts for anything but the two scatters, the money sign and the purple star. The way this wild works is that it will substitute for whichever symbol will give you the best win on each individual payline. That means it's possible for it to count as one symbol for one win and a different symbol for another if it lands on intersecting paylines.
Four Progressive Jackpots
The four progressives listed across the top of the game are the key to the main feature. At random on any given real money spin, you can activate what's called the Jackpot Card Mystery Bonus feature. You'll be given 12 cards chosen at random, and you'll pick from them in whatever order you'd like to turn them over. When you've turned over three cards in the same suit, the suit chosen is the jackpot that you get.
Payouts and Winning Combinations
Five of a kind of the lucky red seven symbol gets you the best static win of 5,000x. You can pick up a payout for two of a kind or more of this symbol. The grapes and watermelons are the secondary wins with 700x for five of either on a payline. Next comes the bell symbol, which is good for a 200x payout with five. You can also pick up 150x for five of the orange, lemon, plums or cherries. This payout is pretty balanced aside from the top win and the progressives, and it lends itself to a fairly high volatility as a result of how large the top wins are.
The theme isn't anything to get super excited about, but the 5 Burning Heart slot by EGT isn't about giving a different motif than you've seen before. Instead, it's about giving you a classic throwback with updated graphics and a lot of ways to win some pretty big payouts. In this, it achieves its aim. While it's not going to compare all that favorably to the top slots in the world, it does compare favorably to other games that have the same kind of motif.
