If you thought the recent hot spell across Europe was finally coming to an end, think again – Swintt, the superstar software provider behind recent smash hits Lucky Mermaid and Win Eagle, is blazing back into action with a fiery new addition to its line-up of Premium Games.
Dubbed Reels on Fire, this smouldering slot release features five reels, five fixed pay lines and an iconic array of fruit-based symbols. Alongside staples such as cherries, lemons, watermelons and grapes, players can also expect to find higher-value BAR logos, horseshoes and lucky red sevens, all of which help to create a familiar aesthetic that’s reminiscent of land-based casino slots found the world over.
Where Reels on Fire differs from its traditional fruit machine counterparts, however, is that it turns up the heat by using a fifth-reel multiplier mechanic that can potentially boost any base game win. When players start spinning, they’ll notice that the game’s right-most column is tinged a dazzling white and doesn’t feature any of the regular base game symbols, but a selection of coloured clovers instead.
Each of these lucky clovers has a prize multiplier value attached, with green being the lowest at 2x and purple being the highest at a whopping 10x. Should players line up three or more matching symbols across a valid pay line followed by a clover icon on reel five, the regular win amount will be boosted by the multiplier value, potentially helping them on their way to a maximum prize of 4,800x their bet.
To assist them in their quest to land these scorching sums, Reels on Fire also features a high-value fox wild. Undoubtedly familiar to players from Swintt’s other Premium releases, this special icon not only substitutes for any regular base game symbols to help complete winning pay lines, but it also appears stacked across the first four reels to help reduce the slot’s variance and boost the overall hit frequency.
After factoring in wilds and bonus multipliers, this makes Reels on Fire a medium volatility slot that’s capable of awarding screen-melting payouts whenever the fruits and clovers align. Now available in regulated markets across the world, it’s the perfect sizzling-hot slot release for summer.
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “Having recently plumbed the depths of the ocean in Lucky Mermaid and soared above the clouds in Win Eagle, we thought it was about time our Premium Game collection turned up the heat by adding a sizzling new slot release in Reel on Fire.”
“Combing iconic fruit machine visuals and straightforward, mobile-friendly gameplay with an innovative fifth-reel multiplier system, the game provides an experience that will appeal to all fans of classic land-based slot machines while also adding the extra fire of top payouts worth up to 4,800x.”
