Based on one of the signs of the Chinese zodiac, Fire Horse is a 5 reel, 720 ways to win video slot from IGT. This fiery, equine-themed slot is packed with opportunities to ride off with a saddle full of coins including stacked wilds and a free spins bonus round. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you can play all 720 lines from just 50p per spin.
If you’ve ever played the popular Siberian Storm slot, you’ll have an idea of what to expect in Fire Horse as both titles use the same game engine. Rather than regular paylines, Fire Horse comes with Multiway Xtra technology which offers 720 ways to win. Land the same symbol on successive reels from both left to right as well as right to left to create winning combinations.
Set against a flame filled backdrop, the reels have a hexagonal 3x4x5x4x5 structure – look out for symbols of K, Q and J playing cards, earthenware pots as well as brown and grey fire horses. The Fire Horse logo is the top paying base game standard symbol, offering payouts of up to 1,000 coins.
The wild only appears on the middle 3 reels and substitutes for everything apart from the scatter and bonus symbols. The wild can appear as a stacked wild, filling up entire reels to really boost your winning chances.
The purple orb is the bonus – land the bonus symbol on 5 successive reels and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded an initial 8 free games. Eight free games are on offer in each Multiway Xtra combination so in theory it’s possible to trigger the feature with a whopping 96 free games. You can re-trigger more free spins during the feature too – this time look out for the blue orb. Up to 240 free spins are possible.
Fire Horse is a medium variance slot offering a nice balance of frequent payouts with decent amounts – the 720 ways to win action keeps the pace galloping along which is appropriate enough given the horse theme. The free spins can certainly deliver some impressive results, as can the stacked wilds. Combine the two and Fire Horse can help you stampede away with some scorching hot wins.
Fire Horse offers nothing new in terms of innovation and is a clone of other popular MultiWay Xtra slots like Day of the Dead and Pacific Paradise – however, it’s a solid offering and the theme is superb.
