We’re back on the animal theme for this IGT slot game. It’s not the usual one of just setting the game in Africa and saying ‘Oh look there’s a tiger and there’s another one on the next reel.’ ‘Fire Horse’ is based on one of the signs of the Chinese zodiac so get ready for some a monkey or a rooster sometime soon. As you’ll read there’s a fair amount happening in this game with some stacked wilds and a free spins bonus game.
This is a five-reel game that has a bit of a different look to it. The first reel has just the three rows of symbols, the second has four and the third has most with a total of five. This means the top and bottom symbols really stand out. It’s back to four and three rows of symbols for the remaining two reels.
The game has a total of 720 different ways to win. Playing the game runs from £0.50 so slightly more expensive than some games but just look at the opportunities you have of getting a winning combination.
The game employs the popular MultiWay Xtra game engine. This is how you get so many different ways to win. Wins are achievable in both directions and on adjacent symbols. This can be played on our PC but is also available on your mobile devices.
The backdrop to the game is flame-filled and adds well to the theme of the game. Symbols include brown and grey fire horses and the Fire Horse logo. Getting five of those wins you 1,000x your bet. There’s also the Jack to Ace playing card symbols that are the lower paying ones in ‘Fire Horse.’
The wild in this game is the symbol that simply has WILD written in blue, not the greatest of design moments. This only appears on the second, third and fourth reels and substitutes for other symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. The real bonus with the wild in this game is that it can appear stacked and take up the whole reel. That really gives you an excellent chance of getting some good winning combinations.
The bonus symbol is the purple orb and this plays a vital role in triggering the free spins feature, hence the inability of the wild to substitute for it.
To ensure that you know as much as possible about this game, make sure that you access the paytable and games rules. That will really increase your knowledge of all areas of the game from how much each win pays and how to trigger the bonus round. A few free games will then allow you to see just how this game works.
