Here's another new game listed under Microgaming software, but I really doubt it's by them. The play screen doesn't resemble that of any MG's games, so my guess would be it's yet another 'leased' game. My first impression on The Heat Is On isn't that good at all, I must say, simply because the graphics doesn't seem attractive enough. It looks dated, like from some years back, except for the Lady Cop and the Lady Thief icons - now these two are looking hot! Hot enough to get the heat onto your butts, for playing the game too long, or hot enough to get the heat onto your face, for all those low payouts, hahaha. So, where did the heat go for you?

For a new game playing with 45 paylines, The Heat Is On doesn't provide you with many feature games, except for the Free Spins game. Very disappointing indeed. No Bonus game, no randomly activated special features either, so this game can become boring quite easily. Both the nicely presented Lady Cop and the Lady Thief are the Wild symbols in this game, each paying a very low 20x total bet for getting 5 of each, and paying 10x the total bet if mixed. Each Wild symbol substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter and the other Wild symbols. Hmm, for these 2 hot ladies, they certainly don't come hot enough with the cash, too bad.

The Bank is the Scatter symbol, paying a damn low 3x total bet for getting 7 of them, yes, 7, not the usual 5, with reels 2 and 3 having 2 stacked Scatter symbols each, whereas all the other reels have only 1 symbol. Getting 3, 4 or 5 Scatters on adjacent reels trigger 5, 10 or 20 free spins, but getting 2 Scatters on either reel 2 or reel 3 doubles the number of free spins, whilst getting both double Scatters multiply the free spins number by 4x, so up to a maximum of 80 free spins can be awarded at a time. Better still, more free spins can be retriggered too. Hmm, if this doesn't make you hot, I don't know what will. But please don't forget, all free spins are without any multiplier, so the heat may go off sooner than expected! Hahaha.

All the other symbols in the game are rather disappointing to look at. They don't look nice enough. But that's not all. They don't even pay good enough! The Gold Bars in the Suitcase pays 4.5x, the Helicopter pays 3.5x, the Police Car pays 2x, the Motorbike Rider pays 2x, the Dynamite also pays 2x, and the rest pay from 1.8x to 1x, all per total bet for getting 5 of each kind. The paytable? What paytable? Oops, sorry. The paytable is a blardy low one indeed!

DISLIKED

For players who like their games to pay more frequently, then they will like this game. For players like me who prefer to get nice good big wins, then this game is as good as a dead one! The payouts in the base game and Free Spins games leave much to be desired. In fact, the heat went to my face instead, hahaha. I managed to get 3 Free Spins games in one session of play, which was quite good actually, but the payouts were 17x, 11x and 7x my bet amount. Argh! Those lovely ladies did appear on screen to create some nice exciting looking wins, but the cash awarded were far from being hot. They were simply just damn too little each time! For mere fun, I might play this The Heat Is On again. For serious play, no way!

The Heat is On is one of the newest video slot powered by Microgaming software provider. It has 5 reels and 45 pay lines to win. I tried a few couple of spins on it just recently, but I did not have any luck at all.

Even if this game has 45 pay lines to win you will find only one feature here. To be honest I am dissapointed, I expected at least one bonus game or some more features for slot with 45 pay lines. Free spins feautre is the only feature here. When you get three or more scatter symbols on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel the feature will be triggered. 5, 10 or 20 free spins is awarded respectively. During free spins 2 scatters on reel 3 or on reel 3 multiplies the number of free spins by 2. Two scatters on reel 2 and 2 scatters on reel 3 multiplies the number of spins by 4. In total you can get 80 free spins which is not so bad at all.

While I was playing it I triggered free spins feature only once. And yes I was playing it only for a short time because I did not like the payouts during main game. During main game there are a lot of wild symbols, but when you look at pay out you will be dissapointed. At least I was. Getting two, three wilds on payline and the winnings around x5 bet… its really funny.
Anyway I triggered free spins feature with 3 scatters and I got 5 free spins. From 5 free spins I won around x20 bet which is not so great either. I did not retriggered free spins with scatters during feature, I guess I had bad luck. Afterall I think I will not play it in near future, mostly because I did not have any decent win from it. My ratio 6 stars.

Again the fight between good and evil has served to inspire one of the games recently released by the company Microgaming, and in this case it is “The Heat is On” slot, which more specifically has a cartoon theme that tells the story of a beautiful policewoman in charge of finding and capturing a sensual villain who tries to steal the largest banks in the city.

The way in which Microgaming aims to conquer players in this slot, it is basically through the inclusion of two quite attractive special features that are a potentially long free spins round, and two different wild symbols, one with the image of the policewoman and another with the villain.

Thus, a round of free spins can be triggered by getting 3, 4 or 5 wilds placed in adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel, and the number of spins would be 5, 10 or 20 respectively, but in addition to this, getting an additional scatter on reel 2 or 3, it multiplies your number of free games by 2, so that if you get scatters on all the five reels and additionally extra scatters on reels 2 and 3, then your number of free spins will be 20 x 2 x 2 = 80; many free spins IMO.

As for the wild symbols, these sometimes appear grouped and combined, on many occasions helping to form long and multiple lines of 5 of a kind; however, payouts coming from these lines are usually not really extraordinary since prices of the paytable are somewhat modest.

As far as I'm concerned, this is a nice slot to play and I think its winning potential is acceptable; however, I have seen in discussions on some forums that this slot has not been precisely well-received, mainly because of its paytable and as well because getting more than 5 free spins is not a precisely a common situation; there are many laments about these out there.

Today I think I had some luck playing “The Heat is On” and managed to win a few dollars, and I think this weekend I will give this slot the opportunity to ratify and we’ll see; for the moment I think this slot deserves at least you give it a try.
