Some people like it hot, while others prefer the cold. Just ask your friends about their weather preferences. The same is true of our fixation with slot games. There are those keen to play on the slots that are running hot, while the rest seek out games that have been cold, seemingly poised for a big win.

Unless you go to a real casino and watch over every slot machine to ascertain which ones are paying out regularly, you have no way of finding out the truth. It’s impossible at online casinos because you don’t get to see other people playing slot games.

But that’s where the clever statisticians at TwinSpires Casino come to the rescue. They have trawled the data to give us all the info we need. So here, then, are your latest trending slot games.

Hotter than a Summer's Day

First up is Divine Fortune, the popular Ancient Greece-themed slot from NetEnt. It’s no surprise to see the game here since we recently reported how one of our players scooped $72,000 playing the Mount Olympus-set slot.

With cool graphics and a soundtrack that whisks you away to Greece, this slot is all about the Pegasus winged horse Wild symbol. It brings re-spins and can also expand over a whole reel in the bonus round. If you’re lucky, up to three reels could be filled with expanding wilds, and that will bring significant cash prizes.

The second of our hot slots is Siberian Storm from IGT. This game uses the same mechanic as the Thundering Buffalo slot, with five reels but a novel set up of rows 3-4-5-4-3. The Multiway Xtra version of the game has 720 ways to win with matching symbols anywhere on successive reels from left to the right or right to left.

The slot is set against the backdrop of the frozen Siberian wastelands, which is quite ironic since it is one of our hot games. Anyway, try and bag the free spins bonus to stack up some nice winnings.

Our last hot game is not a slot, but the Blackjack Poker and Pairs game from IGT. This is the second month in a row that this game has been paying out handsomely to TwinSpires Casino players, so now would seem to be a good time to get in on the action.

Blackjack is the main game, obviously, and you can elect to play one or two side bets with each round. Make a three-card poker hand with your two cards and the dealer’s upcard, or land a pair with more prizes if they are the same color, especially suit.

As Cold as Ice

Apologies if you now have that song from Foreigner as an earworm. If you like to play slots that have run cold because they must surely be about to win big, read on.

First up is Fortune Coin, the classic Far East-inspired slot game. This is one to keep an eye on because when she blows, she blows. Land the Fortune Coin symbols to trigger up to 20 free spins and a shot at the jackpot bonus, where you get one of four payouts.

Regular players will recognize Fortune Coin from Vegas casinos, but it is super popular online, too. Just ask our player from Michigan who scooped $242,000 playing Fortune Coin early in 2021.

The Wheel of Fortune franchise is another to cross over from brick-and-mortar to online casinos. Wheel of Fortune: Triple Extreme Spin is a fine example, even if it has been slightly shy with the recent payouts. All the more reason to play now, you might think?

Enjoy the familiar game show soundtrack on this five-reel slot from IGT, matching a mix of fruit symbols and luxury items like a convertible sports car and jewels. Three scatters trigger the Mini Wheel of Fortune bonus round, while the bonus symbols spark the Triple Extreme Spin Bonus.

The third cold slot on the list is 88 Fortunes, the second of our Chinese-inspired slots. Everything about this game oozes lucky charms, from the chosen red color to the number 88 and lucky symbols. Yet, it hasn’t brought much luck in recent weeks, but all that could be about to change!
