With 5 reels, 20 paylines and 7 random bonus features, can this NextGen Flame slot machine provide you with some flaming big wins or will it just leave you a little red in the face?
Set on a steely blue background with blue hot flames constantly burning at the bottom of the five reels, you won’t find any A – 10 symbols here.
Instead, NextGen Gaming have created unique low paying symbols in the form of four elements and the card suit symbols spades, diamonds, hearts and clubs.
The highest paying symbols are represented by the lion, wolf and eagle, and they stand out from the rest of the pack, but in our experience rarely help create a winning combo.
In fact don’t expect to win much in the base game without the help of one of the seven bonus features, or the additional wilds, which show up on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.
This is a medium to high variance slot machine, which if you don’t already know means that you can expect fewer wins throughout your gameplay like jackpots slots such as Arabians Nights or Leprechaun Goes to Hell by Play’n GO.
But what NextGen have tried to do here is to help the wins come more frequently by adding in 7 different randomly triggered mini-features, which are all aptly named by the way.
For us, it seems that the Cross Flare and Flare Up features showed up the most. But even when they did they didn’t pay out much, rewarding us with as little as 4x – 8x our total bet.
So where do the big wins come if not from these Flame slot reels and it’s modifying features?Start Playing at Vera and John »
The seven reel features, for us anyway, didn’t pay out much in the base game, so how would the free spins fair?
Well, after you’ve triggered 15 free spins by finding 3 bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 you then sit back and hope for some big wins to show up, right? Don’t count on it.
It took us around 150 base game spins or so to hit the free spins round and even then we didn’t win much more than 18x – 30x our total bet.
Granted we might have just been unlucky in our gameplay of this Flame video slot, and you might be able to reach those fiery heights where we didn’t.
The graphics, animations, and even sounds are easy on the eye and ear. This game, however, isn’t as easy on your casino balance.
A medium to high variance slot, it can quickly reduce your slots budget, even though the 7 mini-features should provide some lively excitement from time to time.
A wide betting range of 0.15 up to 75 per spin does allow you to try out any slot strategies you have to hand in order to try and maximise your odds of winning.
Overall though, whether you play the Flame mobile slot or online slot you’ll get the same experience across all devices.
