Fancy a fiery slot that offers red-hot stepper gameplay? Of course, you do! Red Hot Tamales is the perfect slot: simple, fun, and super spicy.

The three-reel, three-row game is one of IGT’s most popular titles, and it’s easy to see why. With jaunty graphics and Mexican music, you won’t be distracted by complicated features that leave you wondering what’s going on.

You can enjoy the Red Hot Tamales slot machine at TwinSpires Casino on any device, together with its High Limit sister title. One of our players won $105,000 playing the high limit version not so long ago. Will you be the next big winner? Read on to see how to play.

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot with the Red Hot Tamales Slots

For those who don’t know, tamales are a traditional Mexican dish consisting of a corn-based dough mixture filled with various meats, beans, and cheese. And, this being a Mexican staple, there’s a healthy dose of chili, too.

The spicy treats give the name to this slot and feature in the graphics surrounding the reels. No wonder players love getting their teeth into this game.

When you spin the reels, there’s nothing complicated to worry about. Symbols are various bars in triple, double, or single format, sevens in red, yellow, and green, and the Wild, which substitutes for all others. The red and yellow sevens can appear stacked to increase winning chances.

As is the norm for these types of games, you can mix any three bar symbols or any of the seven symbols across the 27 paylines for the lower payouts. Bigger money comes from matching three of the exact same symbols or three wilds.

But the really tasty money comes from what IGT calls a "blackout," achieved by having three reels full of the same stacked red symbols or stacked yellow symbols. The red ones (red for hot, of course) are worth a mouth-watering 5,000 times your line bet. Get one of these, and you’ll be tasting chili on the end of your tongue for weeks!

Red Hot Tamales Slot Machine Strategy

I wish I could divulge some top-secret tips to help you to good fortune. Unfortunately, you can do nothing to improve your payouts other than increasing your bet size to maximize your win lines.

Otherwise, the only advice is to try the Red Hot Tamales free slots first to see what it’s all about. Then take advantage of the auto-spin feature, which lets you enjoy up to 50 spins in automatic mode. This means you can sit back and tuck into your Mexican cuisine while hoping for some appetizing good luck.

The return to player for the Red Hot Tamales slot machine is 95.83% which is reasonably standard for an IGT stepper like this. Wins are frequent but often low value; hence the RTP is not higher.
