Fire Forge Slot (Microgaming)
Microgaming is one of the most creative slot developers I know.
They have very interesting concepts, and there is never a dull day with their slot titles.
The latest to join their long list of games is Fire Forge, a slot that borrows its inspiration from Dwarfs that have long been used in fantasy stories.
Join me as I take you through the experience that I had with Fire Forge:
Fire Forge uses the most common set up that comprises 5x3, and 243 ways to win.
It’s a feature-rich slot that uses scatters, increasing multipliers, Rolling Reels, free spins, and stacked wilds among others.
Betting and Prizes
Each spin will cost not less than $0.25: unfortunately, if you are a high roller, you will not be impressed with the highest limit which is $5 per spin.
However, this low betting range does not affect the returns, and the game has the potential to pay as much as 50,000x the stake per round.
With just $5 per spin, you could possibly take home up to $250,000. However, you need help from other features to get to this level.
A majority of games that pay higher amounts tend to be highly volatile, and Fire Forge is no exception.
The RTP is great though, and at 96.73%, it is above the average for modern slots.
Fire Forge Slot Features
You use the ways to win to form a new combo on this slot. Once that is done, the Rolling Reels mechanic will be triggered, and just like is the case on other slots that use this mechanism it will be used to remove the winning symbols.
Afterwards, the same mechanism will be used to bring a new batch of symbols. This process will go on until there are no more new combinations.
Regular wild symbols will appear on reels 2-5, and you can also get the stacked versions on the last three columns.
As usual, the wild can be used as a replacement/substitutes for the regular symbols.
Land scatters a[pear on all the reels, and you can use them to activate the free spins.
The number of free spins depends on the volatility level, and this is how it works;
12 free spins have an initial 1x multiplier, but increases by 1x after each round.
6 spins have a 3x initial multiplier but will increase by 3x.
3 free spins give the most volatile option, and it also comes with a 6x multiplier, and an additional 6x per round.
The free spins can be retriggered, and since the multiplier keeps on increasing, it can go all the way to the max which is 200x.
Theme & Design
Although the dwarfs are busy in the forge, they are not visible on the reels.
The design takes you to an underground world as is characterised by the dark brown images in the background.
The design is generally dark, but well made, especially the design that has gone into the high-value icons.
Symbols include a logo (wild), a Dwarf (scatter), images of Oil Lamp, Hammers, Beer Steins, Anvils, Glove, and four gemstones.
Fire Forge is a slot with massive potential, but one that is also highly volatile.
I’m happy with the huge multipliers, and the free spins that boost its potential.
If high volatility is your thing, then you will love this tile by Microgaming.
