Purple Hot

5-Reel, 5-Line SlotProgressive Jackpot

The aim of playing Purple Hot online slot is land matching symbols on the paylines. Five ‘7s’ on a payline will win the Progressive Jackpot if you are playing for a higher bet. Fans of online blackjack and casino card games will enjoy the Double Feature, where you can bet your winnings on the turn of a card.

How to Play:

  • Select how many paylines you want to bet on by using the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Field.
  • Choose your bet on each payline by using the +/- buttons underneath the Line Bet Field.

Note: Paylines can also be selected by clicking on one of the numbers 1-5 on the sides of the reels. Clicking a number will also activate paylines numerically below it.

Note: The Total Bet = Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

  • Press Spin to play the slot with the current bet and payline selections.
  • Press Bet Max to spin the reels with the maximum of five paylines activated.
  • Click Auto Play to choose up to 99 spins to be played automatically. The Auto Play button will change to Stop when Auto Play is active. Pressing this will stop Auto Play.
  • Select Turbo Mode if you wish to speed up the game’s animations for faster play.

Note: Winning combinations of symbols will be highlighted on the reels after a spin. The total win amount is displayed in the Win Field. A winning spin will activate the Double button. Press if you wish to play the Double Feature (explained below).

Note: Payout information is displayed on the Paytable, which is accessed via the Info button.  For Line Wins, multiply the payout figure by the Line Bet. For Scatter Win, multiply the payout figure by the Total Bet.

Info Pages:

Pressing the Info button will launch pages showing various reference information. Change pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of the page. Press Back to return to the main screen. The Info Pages are described below:

Paytable – lists the payouts for all winning combinations of symbols.

Progressive Jackpot – describes the rules surrounding the Progressive Jackpot. This page also provides payout information on the different Jackpot payouts for each bet level.

Double Feature – explains the rules of the Double Feature. This page also provides information on the maximum double up limit.

Paylines – provides illustrations showing the positions of the paylines on the reels.


Five paylines can be activated for each spin on Purple Hot slot. These will work from left to right across the reels. You can view the positions by opening the Paylines Info Page.

You will only be paid for winning combinations on active paylines, i.e. the ones that you bet on.

Please be aware of the difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the stake placed on each payline. The Total Bet is sum of all stakes on all active paylines, i.e. Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

About Payouts:

All payout awards are listed on the Paytable screen. Multiply the payout x the Line Bet to calculate the win amount for each payline.

You will only be paid once for each winning combination on a payline. Multiple winning combinations will be paid if they occur on separate paylines.

A Line Win will work left to right across the reels, forming a chain of symbols starting on Reel 1.

Scatter Symbol:

The Banana Symbols are Scatter Symbols and will payout if three or more appear in any position on the reels. They do not need to be on paylines or consecutive. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.

Progressive Jackpot:

A potential award in Purple Hot slot is the Progressive Jackpot. This is awarded if you land five ‘7s’ Symbols on a payline. It is only applicable if you are playing for a Total Bet of £2 or more. Depending on your Total Bet, you will be awarded the full Progressive Jackpot or a percentage of it. Full information on the payouts for the Progressive Jackpot are found on the Info Pages.

Please note:

  • If you are not playing for the qualifying total bet, five ‘7s’ on a payline will pay as per the standard Paytable.
  • You can also find information on the Progressive Jackpot by clicking the Jackpot Info button on the top of the reels.
  • All five paylines must be activated to be eligible for a Progressive Jackpot award.
  • Progressive Jackpots are funded by taking a percentage from players’ stakes on the game. However, the casino also provides the seed amount.

The rules for the Progressive Jackpot are described below:

Seed (how much the casino provides for the Jackpot) = 5000 coins.

Contribution Rate (percentage of each stake used to fund Jackpot) = 2%.

Win Condition (result needed to win Jackpot/percentage of Jackpot) = Five ‘7s’ on an active payline.

Win Requirement (how to ensure you are eligible for Jackpot) = Play for a Total Bet of £2 or higher. All five paylines must be active.  

Please note the following:

  • The software will ensure that the same Jackpot award is not won simultaneously.
  • The contribution rate taken from your stake is only paid towards the percentage of the Jackpot that you are qualified for.

Double Feature:

A winning spin will activate the Double Feature. Press the Double button if you wish to launch the Feature.

A new screen will display five cards face down. Press Double or Double Half to start the Feature. This will reveal the leftmost card, which is regarded as the dealer’s card. The objective is to choose one of the remaining four cards that is higher in value than the dealer’s card.

  • Reveal a higher card to double your winnings.
  • Reveal a lower card and you will lose your winnings.
  • A card of the same value results in a tie. You can play again or bank your winnings and exit the Feature.

If you are successful, you can continue to play the Feature until the maximum double limit has been reached. This information is found on the Double Feature Info Page.

You can press Collect at any point before the dealer has revealed their card. This will bank your winnings and end the Feature.

An incorrect guess will automatically end the Feature.

If you select Double Half, you will bank half your winnings and play the Double Feature with the remaining half.

Please note:

  • The Double Feature is disabled during Auto Play.
  • Progressive Jackpot wins cannot be doubled.
  • Aces are regarded as high in the Double Feature.

Return to Player:

The average player return (RTP) for Purple Hot online slot is 92.33% plus the 2.00% contributions if qualified for the Progressive Jackpot.
