It’s time to go old school and to do that we have come across the perfect slot selection for you. The game is called Stacked Fire 7’s and was created by the team behind Inspired Gaming. Combining flames, fruit and two interesting features, this game is sure to have you feeling the heat on each spin!
Stacked Fire 7’s is a 5-reel, 40 fixed pay line slot that offers an RTP of 95% for players. On first glance the layout of the game is very simple, as too are the graphics. Flames lick at the bottom of the reels and the embers flow above, giving the player a feeling of being right inside the fire. Your reels are a basic layout with red colouring behind the symbols ranging from a light red to a darker red.
Symbols are a mix of fruit, bells and sevens, with the exception of the bonus and wild symbols which you can check out below. Higher paying symbols are the red 7, gold 7, blue 7 and the gold bells. Lower paying symbols are the orange, watermelon, grapes and plums. As the game plays there are sounds as the reels hit position and wins are formed. These sounds are the usual slot machine noises you associate with the casino floor or your local pub. Nothing too big and jazzy, just your reels spinning and bells sounding when you win!
Bet Amounts – Betting on Stacked Fire 7’s begins at 20p per spin and can be increased up to £100 per spin. Click on the stacked coin symbol to amend your bet amount before spinning the reels. It will expand to show you the bet amounts on offer, or alternatively you can use the arrows above and below the coin symbol until the bet showing is suitable. Once you reach your desired bet you just hit spin to resume your game at the new bet level.
Wild Symbol – Stacked Fire 7’s keeps it simple with its wild symbol. It is just the word ‘wild’ in orange and yellow letters. The wild symbol will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol is a gold star with the word bonus in front of it. The star scatter symbol will only land on reels 1, 3 and 5. Landing three of the scatter symbol anywhere on those three reels will trigger the bonus spins feature for you.
Gamble Feature – Stacked Fire 7’s has an added gamble feature for those of you that want to amp up the excitement. You can choose to activate the gamble feature on all winning spins, or on winning spins that are worth x5 or more the original stake. This can be done via the gamble button at the top right hand corner. If you have the feature activated on each win, you will be taken to a new screen. Here you will be given the choice of two wheels, the first offers the chance of increasing your win by a third, by double or by triple. The second wheel offers the chance to win some bonus spins which can then be played on the main reel set. You decide which wheel to choose but be careful, because on both wheels there are also sections that mean you will lose everything you have just won.
Bonus Spins Feature – This is where things really heat up for players of Stacked Fire 7’s. Land yourself three or more star scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to enter the round. you will be allocated with x8 bonus spins to play through. However, during this round the only symbols on the reels will be the red, blue and gold 7’s and the wild symbol. It does unfortunately mean that the round cannot be retriggered from within. Due to the nature of the round and the potential for high paying wins, we can understand why the game designers went down this road!
Stacked Fire 7’s is a simple yet exciting game to play, its basic design does not deter the player from having any fun. In fact we felt it added to the enjoyment factor more, in as much as we weren’t distracted by convoluted extras. We can see that the gamble feature could be a huge draw for players, especially considering there is the choice of two wheels here; with one offering bonus spins. But be wary of falling into the gamble feature hole, as you could end up losing more than you win. Overall, Inspired Gaming have pulled it out of the bag, and we can see ourselves revisiting this extremely playable slot again and again.
