The newest Barcrest product offers us the chance to seek our fortune with a little help from Strength, Wisdom, Justice and Faith cards, while surrounded by burning fire. The 2016 release is really hot, and we do not think about the burning flames when we say so.
The slot is filled with action, some nice special features that might award you with some lucrative payouts, while the overall appearance is very good, due to a very good job done by the developers concerning graphics and soundtrack.
What We Love
When we look at some previous Barcrest product, we must say that a significant improvement is made in the graphics department. Everything is burning in this game and the fire looks pretty real, so players could think that they might get burned if standing too close to the screen.
If you like to bet more than $20, Big Bet is a feature for you, since it offers up to 8 spins and a chance to spin either Red or Blue Wheel of Fate, which offer 2 or 3 gold reels, up to 2 Wild reels, and expanding Wilds, as well as expanding Wilds every time a White Dove appears anywhere on the reels, which can result with decent winnings on your balance.
Fortune Drop Bonus game, triggered by 5 golden symbols, offers a 5×5 cascade in which you match 3 or more identical symbols both horizontally and vertically.
The value of the symbols is not as high as in base game, but the game lasts as long as matching symbols appear on the screen, and in our case, since Sun, Stars, Earth and Moon were on our side, it lasted rather long, so we managed to win some lucrative winnings.
What We Do Not Like
Our biggest disappointment was the Flame of Fortune Wheel, that comes as an exchange option after the Fortune Drop. Even though it offers all sorts of cash prizes, multiple Fortune Drop games with added multipliers and Wilds, we never managed to land a bigger prize of what we won in the Fortune Drop.
So, even if it seems tempting, think carefully before you chose the exchange feature, for it can significantly decrease the amount of cash you won in the Fortune Drop.
Concerning the basegame, the winning combinations are not landed as often as we hoped, probably because of the 10 fixed paylines. And when you do manage to land a winning combination, it is not always as high as the initial bet.
Due to a number of additional features in the Barcrest title, it may seem difficult to understand all the rules immediately, and it may take a bit of time to get the hang of it, especially for beginners.
We might be a bit biased when talking about this game, since we are really fond of action-packed slots, and Flames of Fortune offer lots of action for gamers. Even though they might seem confusing in the beginning, they are quite lucrative and may award players with some decent winnings.
High rollers will be pleased with the maximum bet, but should take care while staking their money, because it could burn in flames quickly if they go on a longer non-winning run, but, on the other hand, the bigger your bet is, the greater the chance to win some serious money.
