Landing 5 scatters gives you 500 times your stake, while a full screen of wilds results in 10,000x stake. The latter is the jackpot win in 2020 Hit slot.
The game is set on a mahogany red background resembling a thick curtain. On the dark reels, you will see all kinds of fruit symbols, styled plainly and without many details. There are a golden cup and a 2020 year wild icon, displayed in a mirror layout, which are the only 2 different icons. You will hear the sounds of reels and a melody signalling each of your wins. The graphics are simple, in the classic slot theme and not very impressive.
The symbols include 6 fruit icons, a wild and a scatter. The cherries, orange and plum have the lowest value of all. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of any of these in matching combinations reward 0.10, 0.20 and 1 time your stake. The lemon and grapes pay 0.20x, 0,40x and 2x stake for 3, 4 and 5 of a kind on a pay-line from left to right. The highest value of the fruit symbols has the watermelon. Hitting 3, 4 and 5 of this symbol pays 0.20, 0.80 and 4 times your stake, respectively.
The wild is the golden icon with the 2020 year, which is positioned halved in a mirror display. It pays more from the top player – the watermelon. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a pay-line to win 0.40, 4 or 10 times your stake. As usual, the wild substitutes for other missing symbols except scatters. A full screen of wilds gives you 10,000 times your stake.
The scatter is the golden cup and it has the highest payout of all symbols. It also the only one that doesn’t have to land on a pay-line to give you wins, which happens rather rarely. Hit 3, 4 or 5 scatters in any position gives you 5, 20 or 500 times your stake, respectively.
Part of the gameplay is a Risk Game, namely a Card Gamble. You can take part of it after each of your wins and gamble up to 10 times. You have to choose a card from the 4 dealt on the screen. Your aim is your card to beat the dealer’s card, which you see on the left. If you beat the dealer, your winning is doubled, if your card has a lower value, you lose your win and return to the base game.
The odds of choosing cards with lower values are higher than those with higher values. The appearance of cards are from 162% for the 2, 121% for 3, etc. and the King and Ace have 64% and 42% chances to be picked. The average return to player rate of the card gamble is 84%. Yet your chances can be lower or higher according to the dealer’s hand.
We recommend you to take your winnings when you see that the dealer has a very high card. The Joker beats all cards and is the only one that the dealer can’t get. If you pick the same card as the dealer’s, this results in a draw and you have to make another round. You can take your winning any time you decide by clicking on the green spin button.
Although 2020 Hit is no any innovative or full of features, it can appeal to newbies and players who like classic slots. If you are a fan of games such as Imperial Fruits, Super Fruits Wild, Juicy Reels and the like, play 2020 Hit. It includes bet sizes to suit a wide number of players.
