sizzling Scorpions Slots

Sizzling Scorpions is a cool slot machine game that has a hot theme, literally because of the desert motif. The game's symbols - the scorpion, a buzzard perched on a skull, the scorching sun - are cleverly rendered and bring to mind the vastness and heat of the desert. The game's designers even used carefully chosen hot colors like reds and yellows to give the game that extra sizzle.

Hive of Activity

Sizzling Scorpions is a visually stimulating three reel, one pay line, three coin slot machine from Microgaming, one of the leading producers of online games. The game can only be played with a $0.50 and has a maximum bet of $1.50 per spin. There are nine winning combinations in the game which can garner the top jackpot of 5,000 coins. The game uses a mix of traditional and new desert theme icons. Slots fans will see the familiar seven and 1, 2 and 3 BARS as well as the sun, a buzzard and a wickedly grinning scorpion. To make the game more fun, the three new icons are also the wild symbols. However, the game has no scatter symbol. There is also nothing new in the animation and sound effects.

Bitten by a Bug

Sizzling Scorpions has a special bonus feature. A buzzard symbol on the third reel center line unlocks this feature. In the bonus round, players will choose from one of the three mean scorpions to race and depending on how it goes, one is awarded $15, $25 or $50. The pay is not big but the feature is fun to play and breaks the monotony nicely. But players should remember the following - they must bet three coins per spin to qualify for the bonus feature and the value of the bonus prize is in credits, not coins. Another thing to remember is that winnings are paid out only on the highest combination and a malfunction voids all pays and plays.

Make a beeline for Sizzling Scorpions

Sizzling Scorpions is easy to play and visually stimulating to boot but the main attraction is the unique twist the game has with its bonus feature. So for a mere $1.50, players are kept happy with the additional coins they will win in the fun bonus game. Sizzling Scorpions is available as a free download where one can play as a guest player or with real money at online casinos powered by Microgaming.
