Firestarter Slots Review
Firestarter is an online slot from Novomatic. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines. Firestarter is a bit different to the usual slot games, as the reels do not spin, the symbols fall into position onto the reels, a reel refill. The graphics have been designed cartoon style with animations and exploding symbols. Music plays during the game as the reels spin and if there is a win a rock tune will play. The backdrop of the game is a newspaper article about the firestarter couple being hunted down.
Classic Slot Symbols
The Firestarter symbols include the classic fruit symbols, melon, lemon, orange and cherries. The melon offers a payout of 15 000 coins for 5, the lemon and orange will each payout 10 000 coins for 5 and the cherries are worth 8 000 coins for 5. The lucky number 7 is the highest paying symbol in this game and has a payout of 500 000 coins for 5, 50 000 coins for 4 and 4 000 coins for 3. The other main symbols are the male and female devil who are each worth 50 000 coins for 5, 10 000 for 4 and 4 000 coins for 3.
Wild and Scatter
The wild symbol is the wild logo and the scatter symbol is the box of matches. The wild symbol will substitute for all of the symbols except the scatter to create winning combinations.
Free Spins Feature
The scatter symbol will activate the free spins round and players will receive 10 free spins. During this round the male and female devil will become scatter symbols increasing the chance for more wins. If 3 or more scatter symbols appear during the free spins round players will receive more free spins depending on how many scatters there are on the reels.
For 3 scatters players will be given 5 free spins, 4 scatters will reward players with 10 free spins and 5 scatters will reward players with 15 free spins. The scatter symbols will payout in any direction.
Double or Nothing
After each winning spin players will be given the option to gamble. The gamble button on the screen will light up and players can choose to click it or collect their winnings from the previous spin. Players will be taken to another screen where they will be shown a playing card face down. On either side is a button, red or black. Players must try to guess the colour of the card. If they are able to correctly guess the colour their win will be doubled. Unfortunately an incorrect guess will mean that all their winnings will be lost.
Players can select how many paylines to activate using the lines button. To select how much to bet on each payline players must click the bet/line button. There is a minimum bet of 0.02 and a maximum of 4.00 that will make a maximum bet of 100.00. The autoplay button will spin the reels continuously and the spin button will spin the reels one spin at a time. The paytable has the symbols and their payouts and for information about the bonus feature players can click the more info button.
The reel refill makes a pleasant change from the usual spinning reels and players will have a good chance of wins with the free spins, extra scatters and gamble option.
