Flame Slot: Introduction
Flame is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 20 paylines playable on all devices from €0.15 up to €75. It is developed by NextGen who's also behind popular titles such as 300 Shields, Medusa and Cash Stampede. There are 3 premium symbols and 4 low value symbols with the Lion being the top symbol awarding 750 coins for 5 symbols across a payline. Flame is a medium variance slot with a 95.51% RTP in the main game and 96.6% RTP in the bonus.
Flame Slot: Features
The game very much centers around the features. There are 7 so called Mini-Features which are triggered randomly and can appear in both the main game and the bonus. In the bonus these features occur more frequently. The Mini-Features are played over one spin with exception of the Wild Inferno feature that allows for re-spins. The 7 features includes:
- Cross Flare
Current game will pay left to right beginning with the leftmost reel and right to left beginning with the rightmost reel on all paylines.
- Flare Up
All wins for the current game are randomly multiplied by 2, 3, 5, 7 or 10.
- Fire Whirl
Randomly covers 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 reels. Any LION, WOLF or EAGLE symbol appearing on reels covered by FLAME will award a bonus prize.
- Live Embers
All HEART, DIAMOND, CLUB and SPADE symbols on reel 2 and/or reel 3 and/or reel 4 become WILD for the current spin.
- Spontaneous Combustion
All FIRE, LIGHTNING, WATER and LEAF symbols on all reels will randomly transform into LION, WOLF or EAGLE.
- Wild Inferno
Upon triggering WILD INFERNO feature, any applicable wins for the current reel spin are paid and 1 Re-Spin is awarded for each WILD symbol appearing onscreen.
All WILD and BONUS symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 become a combined WILD-BONUS symbol for the current reel spin.
The Free Spins game is triggered when 3 bonus symbols lands on the 3 middle reels OR when the Firestorm feature merges the wild and bonus symbols. There is no heart stopper in this game and the bonus symbols wild come in fast and hard.
The bonus is played with 15 free spins and can be re-triggered, awarding a total of 30 free spins in the bonus. In the bonus, the 7 features occur more frequently for enhanced wins and which in theory means you could end up with a 10x multiplier on each free spin.
Flame Slot: Conclusion
While all the Mini-Features are fun and adds value to the main game it's likely the developers had to allocate wins to the features on the expense of the bonuses, which seem hard to trigger. As already mentioned, the game centers very much around the features and it's a bit exciting when they appear, which they do quite frequently. Other than that the game looks and feels pretty much like a standard NextGen slot so no no surprise in that aspect. It's an average medium to high variance game, with a good production and quite an impressive 6000x max win in the bonus so definitely worth a try.
