NextGen Gaming’s Flame slot invites you into a world on fire! Here is a slot game that aims to charm you with its good looks and then floor you with a truck load of extras. This slot so packed with bonus fun that you might just start to overheat! This game is officially hotter than even the Dirty Dancing slot machine, so put your air conditioning on and let’s go and take a look.
Look and feel
The game is themed by fire with all the visual elements set against a back drop of sheet metal with floating icons making up the action on the reels.
The background music is good, with your wins celebrated with pumping action-movie type effects and whooshes! It’s all about the high octane energy of this upbeat and bouncy slot game. That Flame lass looks like one of the girls from the Astrobabes slot – at the very least they go to the same hair dresser.
Flame slot is a five reel, three row and 20 pay lines game to test your metal!
The high value icons are a combination of wild creatures’ heads wrought in different metals; there’s a golden well coiffured lion, a pink wolf and a silver eagle’s head. Unusually, there are some medium value icons too with a lightning flash, a leaf, a flame and a teardrop. The lower value icons are our old friends, a selection of icons from the card deck.
The game’s Wild is a fuchsia haired futuristic girl who subs for all icons except the bonus Scatter icon, which is a round pattern with the word “Bonus”, but beware this fiery woman only makes an appearance on reels 2, 3 and 4! She looks like she could easily go head to head with the rock gods in the Spinal Tap slot – no problem at all.
Let the bonus party begin!
This is a game that’s heavy on the extras- especially in the base game where there are a generous 7 side games ready to spring randomly into action after each spin.
The Flare Up side game is a winner, as the flames lick the reels you will be awarded a multiplier of between x2 and x10 for your current spin.
Cross Flare gives you double the chance of fun by making it a pay both ways game, not just left to right across the reels.
Watch out for the Fire Whirl mini feature which delivers some of the good stuff by the flames covering the reels and rewarding your animal icons that get touched by the fire with a cash prize to a very generous maximum of x20 your bet- now that’s flaming good!
Spontaneous Combustion is a gift worth receiving, with the flames upgrading the less valuable icons for those with more value to make for higher wins for you!
Live Embers makes your card icons on reels 2,3 and 4 turn into Wilds. Hot stuff!
Wild Inferno is wildly exciting! For each Wild on the reels you are awarded a free spin and that Wild expands on the reel for that spin. Land further Wilds and get additional free spins and more sticky fun.
And then there’s the Fire Storm. This little honey is just what all slot players need, a short cut to the free spins action of course! Here Wilds and Bonus icons on reels 2,3 and 4 turn into a Wild Bonus icon to trigger the freebie spins element of the game.
Get three of the Bonus Scatter symbols on the reels and you activate a hefty 15 free spins and there’s more – if Lady Luck smiles on you, you can keep retriggering those gift-giving spins up to a maximum of x30 and those side games can pop up as well to bolster your winning chances- now that’s what I call generous.
NextGen have gone to town with all the extras in Flame. The high energy atmosphere and high quality look and feel of the game are the perfect marriage of pace and all the bonus fun that has been packed into this pleaser. I’ll be back, keeping my personal fire extinguisher handy to dose down the flames if I overheat!
