Sizzling Scorpions is a bonus slot with three reels and a single payline. The game has a scorpion and desert theme that has mostly standard symbol icons. You can bet as many as three coins at once, and it is actually to your benefit to do so. The jackpot is capped at $2,500 when you win with a wager of three coins. The bonus game is similar to a horse race, except the race is between scorpions rather than horses. This game is like any other classic three reel slots, but the bonus game adds an interesting element that makes it stand out.
Coin denominations are set at a flat rate. Each coin has a value of 50 cents, and you can bet between one and three of them on each spin. There is only one payline, so you do not need to strategically spread your wagers out. Considering that the most that you can bet on a single spin is $1.50, the jackpot of $2,500 is actually quite generous.
The pay table in Sizzling Scorpions is set up so that you win proportionately more when you wager more coins on each spin. For instance, the jackpot when you wager one coin is 1,000 coins, which comes out to $500. Hitting the jackpot with two coins will yield a payout of 2,000 coins, which is $1,000. The jackpot for a wager of three coins is 5,000 coins, which is $2,500.
If you like horse racing games, you will love scorpion racing. You activate the Sizzling Scorpion bonus round by getting the buzzard icon on your reels. The scorpion race is a race between three scorpions. You bet on which of the scorpions will win the race. If you guess correctly, you can win 100 coins. Second place pays you 50 coins, and third place gives you 30 coins. You win no matter what, but you get paid the most if you choose the winning scorpion.
