Check Out Barcrest’s Newest Creation Flame of Fortune Slot
After the success of Boulder Bucks, Barcrest Software decided to launch a similar video slot game called Flame of Fortune. The game design is similar with the standard 10 pay lines, 5 reels and 3 rows, while the Big Bet option is also present.
Flame of Fortune has a little better level of graphic and animations, but is still behind compared to some other top video slot games from other providers. This is a common practice in Barcrest and more detail is paid to the features and the overall payout potential of the game.
Flame of Fortune has a 250,000 coins maximum payout potential which is reason enough to try it for real play. The bet range goes from as low as 10 cents up to a high $500 per spin, but Barcrest fans know there is a catch to the bet size. Like in many of their other games, the higher the bet size is, the higher the RTP value of the game is.
Playing on bets under $2 isn’t recommended, because the RTP is lower and some features are disabled. For example the wild symbol doesn’t substitute for the Golden Symbols on bets under $2, while on a higher bet it substitutes for all symbols and can make the Fortune Drop feature easier to trigger. Once you see the whole picture you will realize that everything in the game begins with the right bet size.
The Fortune Drop feature is triggered by 5 Golden symbols on a winning pay line. The reels and the game play change and the set is now a 5×5 grid with cascading dropping symbols. Wins start only horizontally and vertically with 3 or more matching symbols in a row. The feature ends when no more wins are possible and the player has a choice to claim his winnings or go to the Flame of Fortune Wheel.
This feature can award a cash prize, bigger or smaller than the win in the Fortune drop, or award an Enhanced Fortune drop. The enhanced functions are determined by which Wheel of Fortune you choose and which features you manage to trigger.
Whether you choose the red or blue wheel you will be awarded with wild reels, expanding wilds or Golden Reels. The Big Bet options awards from 5 to 8 spins and a spin on the Wheel of Fate or Super Wheel of Fate, at a cost of $20, $30 or $50.
What We love
We love the features in the game and the overall design. Barcrest is an innovative software provider and their games are really attractive, especially to high roller players. The maximum payout amount is also a very attractive detail in the game.
What we Do not Like
For a new video slot game we would expect for it to be visually more attractive. Nevertheless the payout potential certainly compensates for this detail.
Bet big and win big. The golden rule in playing video slot games and the golden rule by Barcrest Software. The game is designed to pay big and you have to risk big.
There are a big number of features available so with a little luck and a smart play strategy you can have a lot of fun playing and increase your balance. If you have played some of Barcrest earlier releases Flame of Fortune will definitely catch your attention.
