Head Deep Into the Jungle
Firestorm is a 3-row, 5-reel, 25-fixed payline slot set against a background depicting an ancient ruins long forgotten in the depths of a jungle region. The symbols reflect the theme with precious gems set in carved stone. There are minor animations including a flaming Mask symbol which flickers realistically. The music is tribal creating an authentic deep-jungle adventure ambience.
Firestorm shows all values for Bet/Line, Total Bet, Balance and Win in cash along the bottom of the slot screen. Selecting a Cash Bet could not be easier thanks to Quickspin’s straightforward bet options. Simply, click on the Total Bet box and choose a Cash Bet ranging from 25p – £100 at Vera&John online casino. Firestorm’s Paytable values are listed in cash. They change with bet selection as the slot auto-calculates potential wins by multiplying the Bet/Line by the pay listed in the Paytable.
Firestorm has 12 symbols with 2 special symbols and 10 regular symbols. The special symbols include a regular Wild symbol and a Mask Bonus Wild symbol. The regular Wild can substitute for any regular symbol and forms its own winning combinations of 3-5 matching symbols. The Mask Bonus symbol can substitute for any symbol (even the regular Wild) and is involved in triggering Re-spins. The regular symbols are divided into 5 higher-paying, large gems and 5 lower-paying, small gems/stones. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Runic Ruby, Runic Amethyst, Large Emerald, Large Aquamarine, Large Amethyst, Purple Stone, Red Stone, Small Aquamarine, Small Emerald and Small Ruby.
Firestorm’s gameplay is left to right, so get 3+ matching symbols starting from reel 1 to win. When compared to most other slots, Firestorm’s single payline profits appear dismally low. Get 4+ Wilds or 5+ of any higher-paying symbol to profit along a single line. Multiple payline wins on the same spin are allowable which helps to offset the low profits. Not to mention, the Re-spin Feature triggers frequently enough to recoup losses.
The Wild symbol is Firestorm’s highest paying slot symbol showing a value of (£20, £2, £1.60) for a Cash Bet selection of £1. The Wild gives this online slot the potential to award up to 20x the Total Bet along a single payline and up to 500x the Total Bet along all 25 paylines.
Quickspin slots typically offer an Autoplay ranging from 5-1,000 automatic spins. Firestorm offers no advanced Autoplay settings. Press ‘stop’ to end Autoplay.
Game Settings: set spacebar to spin, review Game History, toggle music or sound effects on/off, and activate Fastplay by pressing the ‘Fast Play’ box.
Firestorm Bonus Re-spin Feature
This online slot’s main Bonus Feature is the Re-spin Feature. The appearance of 2+ Mask Bonus symbols triggers this Feature (as well as awards a 2x Win Multiplier to any winning combos that happen to occur at the same time). In the upper right-hand corner, a special meter with 6 Mask Bonus symbol spaces appears. At the start of the session, this online slot randomly selects a regular symbol to remain fixed in place during the Bonus. All regular Wilds and Mask Bonus symbols also lock in place as the remaining symbols Re-spin and are replaced by new symbols. Each time one of the 3 fixed symbols (regular, Wild, Mask Bonus) lands on the reels, it locks in place with the rest and triggers another Re-spin.
The appearance of additional Mask Bonus symbols on the reels during a Re-spin fills spaces on the meter in the upper right. When it reaches the 3rd space, a Win Multiplier of 2x is awarded to any wins resulting from that Re-spin. When it reaches the 4th space, a Win Multiplier of 3x is awarded, the 5th space awards 4x and the 6th awards 5x. The Re-spin Feature ends either when no additional ‘locking symbols’ appear or all symbol spaces are already completely filled with locked symbols.
