Firestarter Video Slot by Novomatic
Novomatic is an Austrian-based company that was founded in 1980 and produces land-based and online casino games. The offline games have a big presence in Europe, while the online games are popular all over the world.
Firestarter is a Video Slot game that can be played for free or for real money. It’s got a quirky design and is executed with cartoon-like graphics. A lot of them are a nod towards the original Slots machines, with many of the icons on the reels being classic symbols such as 7s, melons, oranges and cherries all bearing a tongue-in-cheek fire hazard warning sticker. Plain white reels and authentic Slots machine sound effects and music add to the traditional fee of the game.
The He Devil and She Devil that live up to the name of the slot bring the Firestarter theme in a little more. They can be seen on the introductory screen in front of bright orange flames, and are supposedly to blame for starting several recent blazes. The reel symbols that represent the games special features are all linked to pyromania as well.
Firestarter Basic Gameplay
The fiery action unfolds over 5 reels and 25 paylines. The Top Jackpot in this game is 10,000 coins, and it has a theoretical RTP of around 95%. The betting range is 0.5 to 100. It is possible to play for no deposit, which allows players to get familiar with the game, polish their skills and build up their confidence before playing for real money, and provides the perfect way to relax and unwind without any financial pressures at the end of a long day.
When you are ready to place real wagers and want to maximise your winning opportunities when you are pressed for time, it’s also possible to activate the AutoPlay feature. This keeps the reels spinning on their own, as you carry on with other things.
Special Features in Firestarter
There are several bonus symbols and extras in the game, which helps to keep things exciting for players. First of all, the Wild Symbol is represented by a horny female devil, who can appear on Reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitute for any regular icon to complete winning combinations.
There is an icon that the Wilds can’t stand in for; the matchbox Scatter Symbols that will trigger a Bonus Round of 10 Free Spins when 3 are seen scattered anywhere on the reels at the same time. During this round it’s also possible to trigger more free spins, with 5, 10 and 15 additional turns being awarded for the appearance of 3, 4 or 5 He or She Devils.
A winning line in the game also activates the Reel Refill Feature. This resembles a Tumbling Reels Feature, and replaces all of the winning icons with falling symbols. This continues until no winning lines are left on the screen.
Finally, the Gamble Feature in the game allows players to try and increase their takings after each successful spin. You can choose to try and double your winnings by correctly predicting the colour of a randomly drawn playing card, but if you’re wrong you’ll forfeit everything. It’s certainly risky, but for many players it provides a thrilling way to finish off a round.
