Being of Barcrest’s better games in terms of its visual appearance, Flame of Fortune also includes some decent speciality rounds as well. Its bonus features begin with the wild icon
though, and this comes in the form of the white dove. As a wild, it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels. The exceptions to this rule exist in the golden playing card icons of A, K, Q, J and 10. However, if you’re playing in the Big Bet mode (which we’ll explain shortly), the wild substitutes for every single symbol on the reels.
You’ll also find a feature in this game known as the Fortune Drop. This becomes active whenever at least one golden symbol appears on each reel. This feature is a 5×5 cascade of icons. Then, if you match three, four or five of the same symbol horizontally or vertically, this adds to your fortune drop total. Winning combinations will then remove themselves from the grid and further symbols cascade. This gives you the chance of receiving additional wins. During this round, you’ll see different icons of the Sun, Stars, Earth and Moon. When no further wins are able to form, the player can then opt to play the Flame of Fortune Wheel.
If you choose to play the Flame of Fortune Wheel round, then you will forfeit your wins from the Fortune Drop feature. The Wheel can provide you with a simple cash prize (which may end up being less than the winnings from the Fortune Drop), or an an enhanced Fortune Drop Game with additional features. These additional features can consist of multiple Fortune Drop games, symbol multipliers or wild symbols.
As we said, the game also has a Big Bet button within. Pressing this will give you the chance to receive five Big Bet Spins with the Wheels of Fate also being active. The minimum value of the wager that you can bring into play for Big Bet spins is $20. If you choose to do this, you need to select either the red wheel or the blue wheel. The red one allows you to bring wilds reels, expanding wilds or gold reels in to play during Big Bet spins. The blue offers up options for one, two or three gold reels during Big Bet spins.
