Eyecon’s Heartburst slot fits into that growing genre of games that have a retro feel but also have a modern game engine and top notch graphics with plenty of atmosphere.
This game is not as feature packed as, say, the Diamond Mine slot from Blueprint Gaming, but it’s no slouch!
The Heartburst slot is retro styled : most of us have a soft spot for traditional fruit machines and Heartburst appeals to this nostalgia with a theme should put a smile on your face.
The design of the reel set is a purple affair: it’s clear with crisp graphics. And the game has an upbeat soundtrack that keeps things light and entertaining without being annoying.
Heartburst Game Play
Heartburst has five reels, four rows, and 100 pay-lines. There are plenty of traditional looking symbols, just like the Swipe and Roll slot, the big difference being that there is much more purple about.
The icons of the slot itself are pretty traditional. The highest value icon is the BAR (land 5 on an active pay-line and earn x3000 your bet), the golden bell and a selection of fruits including cherries, grapes, orange, watermelon and a lemon.
The lower value icons of play are the Ace through Jack of a playing card deck.
The Wild is Key
The Wild at the centre of this slot is key. I guess they have taken their cue from Starburst on this front.
The Heartburt Wild is a big pink heart. These love bird icons only show up on reels 1, 3 and 5 and they substitute for all icons except the Scatter.
And if you get a Wild heart in your winning combo it applies a x3 multiplier to your win. When the love heart lands it expands to cover the whole reel, thus maximising your chances of making a win. We love it!
Play Heartburst at FUN Casino
The Top paying symbol is the BAR symbol, so look out for those. 5 across a pay-line will net you 3000x your pay-line bet.
The Scatter is the lucky 7 icon and these activate the free spins feature in line with many other slot games like the Mask slot and plenty more that we can think of.
If you’re eager to try your luck after the spin, you can hit the Gamble function after any spin that will double your win if you guess successfully. Play it sparingly, would be our advice, and bank your wins. If you guess wrong, you lose your winnings for that spin.
With a simple click, you can activate the Autoplay function and spins the reels a set number of times.
Where to Play Heartburst
Look for sites that stock Eyecon games like Monkey Casino, Royal Panda and bet365.
If you can lure 3, 4 or 5 Lucky 7 Scatters onto the reels, you will trigger the free spins feature which will reward you with 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively and you can re-trigger this feature if you can land more Scatters.
There is an upper limit on the re-trigger element with 15 extra rounds being the maximum you can activate. That isn´t half bad and is probably one of our favourite features of the game.
Time to bag some 7s!
