Red Hot BBQ was created by Red Tiger to function on any gadget and accept bets between 0.10 and 80 per spin. Players can also purchase any of the 2 features to "skip to the main courses," as it were. The game's potential return to player value is 95.66% when playing in default mode, but it rises to 96.75% when using the Feature Buy. Its play area consists of a matrix of 20 paylines and five reels holding three symbols each.
When at least three matching symbols appear on neighbouring reels, starting on the leftmost reel, players receive a payout down the paylines. Food items are prominently featured on the paytable, as you might expect, and six of them have been used as the greatest pay symbols. As their value increases, they take on an increasingly hostile appearance. Barbecue icons, such as the garlic, onion, serrano, jalapeno, habanero, and ghost pepper emblems, are high paying. Four pretty benign, yet flame-coated, J-A card rank symbols are displayed for lows. Payouts for completing a 5-of-a-kind winning line range from 1 to 3 times the initial wager for low wins and 4 to 15 times the initial wager for large wins.
Scatters, such as the Mystery Sauce symbols, can appear anywhere on the playing field. Each Mystery symbol that appears reveals the identical regular pay symbol when it does. It's significant to notice that they never show low-paying royals, just barbeque emblems.
The bonus game and 9, 12, or 15 free spins, respectively, are activated by landing 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols for the extra spins anywhere on the grid. A tiny pepper mark may appear on Mystery Sauce scatters that land during free plays. Only during free spins does the Hot Bar gather these pepper indicators.
The Hot Bar has 5 stages, and it takes 3 steps to fill each stage. One of the barbeque symbols is shown on each level in ascending sequence. A stage's associated symbol is upgraded to the following symbol on the Hot Bar and only shows on the reels as the upgraded symbol for the remainder of the round when all three steps of that stage have been completed. Only the highest-value Ghost Pepper will show up from the barbeque symbols if all phases of the Hot Bar are filled.
