Firelight Slot Machine

The title Firelight may have some of you confused as to the theme of the slot, but it’s actually based on Greek mythology – and more specifically the Phoenix. As the legend goes, the Phoenix is associated with the sun and obtains new life arising from its predecessor, and thanks to the Reel Power and free spins features in Firelight, its magical powers can assist your pursuit of huge wins!

Unfortunately there is nothing magical about the sounds, instead it’s the atmosphere you’d find in a pub with the sounds of other online slot machines being played and the rowdy locals chattering amongst themselves – with the outrageous laughter of one female included.

The Reel Power setup sees it pay 243-ways, which is the popular setup of the most popular Microgaming slot machines, and the free spins mode boasts a maximum of 12 free spins with a nifty twin reels feature that is most impressive so prepare to set the reels alight for big wins!

Reel Power

The structure of the Firelight slot machine will be pretty unfamiliar unless you have played Aristocrat slot machines before as it boasts their unique Reel Power technology. While it’s played across 5 reels like the majority of their slots, you don’t set bet per paylines like you do in most other online slot machines.

Instead you purchase reels instead with five options to choose from, which are reel 1 by itself, reel 1 and 2, reel 1 to 3, reel 1 to 4, or reel 1 to 5. Obviously the more reels you play the higher the cost will be per spin – but remember having all reels paying means you have a greater chance of winning.

Mystical Symbols

The symbols in Firelight have been beautifully designed with a style that harks back to the days of ancient civilization with a dash of mystical powers included, and in total there are thirteen that you’ll encounter when the reels are spun.

Of these it’s the volcano overflowing with magna that is most noteworthy as it is the Wild and can substitute for all others on the reel aside from Scatters, however it only appears on the third reel which is disappointing. However on the positive side when a Wild does substitute for a win it sees a multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x attached which is very generous as it does happen frequently.

The Scatter is the iconic Phoenix and this pays left to right anywhere on adjacent reels, while a warrior, statue, drum, ring, and idol all feature alongside the low-paying Ace to 9 playing card symbols that you’d associate more with casino table games than the legend of the Phoenix!

Free Spins with Twin Reels

Aside from the Reel Power structure, the other reason to play Firelight is the free spins feature that can be triggered by landing three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Should you land three Scatters you will receive 6 spins, four and you’ll receive 9 spins, while 5 see you rewarded the maximum of 12 spins.

In addition to this reels one and two become twin reels along with reels 4 and 5. This means that both sets (reel 1 and 2 along with reel 4 and 5) display the same symbols in adjacent positions for vastly improved chances of landing a large win.

Final Thoughts on Firelight

While there are countless mythological themed slot machines available to play online, this Greek version based on the Phoenix promises so much but is actually most disappointing.

The Phoenix symbol certainly stands out on the reels but the rest of the symbols could have been much better, especially the inclusion of boring playing card symbols, and don’t even get me started on the horrid music – rather than mystical tones it’s the murky atmosphere of a bar.

Despite that, while 12 free spins doesn’t seem great when compared to other Aristocrat slots like the Lucky Count slot machine where you can earn up to 40, the twin reels feature certainly boosts the wins you achieve.
