Hot Slots (titled Hot Slot in-game), known in Japan as AV Pachi Slot (AVパチスロ AV pachisuro?), is an unlicensed pachislot game developed by Hacker International and published by Panesian Taiwan in 1991. AV Pachi Slot was released on the Famicom and Hot Slots was released internationally on the NES. The "AV" in "AV Pachi Slot" refers to audiovisual.
To begin a game, the player chooses one of three slot machines: Cutie Bunny, Juicy Fruits, or Las Vegas. Each machine has a distinct visual design and musical score. After purchasing "medallions" (token coins), the player may play up to five medallions in a machine for each pull. The player stops each reel by pressing a direction on the D-pad. Between spins, the player can optionally switch to another machine.
Hot Slots is an eroge, a video game that rewards game progress, persistence, or performance with images that are sexually explicit or suggestive. Each slot machine is accompanied by a scantily-clad hostess, who appears at intervals when the player's winnings surpass a certain threshold. When the player nets a profit of $210, the game displays a full-screen cartoon image of the partially clothed hostess with a caption or speech balloon. At a net profit of $300, she loses more of her clothing; at $450, she appears nude.
