Theme of The Game
Flame’s theme gets an almost fantasy-like inspiration, and so what you’re going to see doesn’t have much to do with real fire. Instead, you’re getting blue magic fire outside the reels, rather than the kind that you’d actually see in real life. You get a main character here, a young girl with pink hair that’s marked as the Wild, a Bonus logo as a scatter, several animals that are stylized and designed as logos (lion, eagle, wolf), plus representations for the elements (a flame, a thunderbolt, a drop of water and a green leaf).
They finish things off with four card suits, the least attractive images that are shown on the reels. All in all, not the most attractive looking mobile slot machine that you will see released these days, but not as bad as some of the others either.
Over 100 games are available through NextGen, a company that has been doing this for a long time, ever since the late 90s actually.
They’re part of NYX right now, but they continue to release exciting mobile slot machines, many of them of good quality. If there is one point where I’d say that they don’t compare with other big developers, is in the designs they put out, which are only average looking usually.
How To Play It
Only 15 coins are part of your bets in Flame, but they will be enough to cover a total of 20 lines. You pick the total bet value here, the options ranging between $0.15 and $75. The resulting coin denomination can be $0.01 to $5.
It’s an interface that is optimized for mobile slot users, and it gives you the option to change the position of the spin button, to the bottom right or the left, depending on how it’s easier for you. It’s got 20 lines on 5 reels, so on that account it’s a standard release.
T&C Apply 18+
Among the features which you’re getting in Flame, there is the wild symbol for one, an important part of any game. Unfortunately, only the reels 2, 3 and 4 will get this symbol, which is used in the usual way when it appears. What this means is that it’s capable of being a replacement for a regular symbol, but not for the various other feature triggers.
The same three middle reels will also have Bonus symbols on them, usable as triggers of the game’s 15 free spins. The mini-features, which I’m going to mention below, are much more likely to trigger during the free spins. Those free spins can also be retriggered.
The Flame Mini-Features are available at random, both for the paid and the free spins, though the latter are likelier to get them. These include the Firestorm (wilds and bonus symbols get combined), Wild Inferno (re-spins offered for each wild present), Spontaneous Combustion (elemental symbols transform into high-paying symbols of the same type), Live Embers (card suit symbols on middle reels transform into wilds), Fire Whirl (Flame covers 1 to 5 reels and makes high-paying symbols award bonus prizes), Flare Up (wins get multiplied by 2x to 10x) and Cross Flare (combos formed both ways, 5-symbol wins pay twice).
Considering that 10x multipliers are possible at times, the game’s individual combinations could end up paying up to $37,500. We also know the theoretical RTP of Flame, announced at 96.61%, a pretty respectable figure.
Flame and its magic elemental inspired theme works out pretty well, and even though I wouldn’t call it a great looking slot machine, it can be a lot of fun. Its features help a lot with that, as there are more than half a dozen random ones that can pop-in at any time.
