Firestorm 7 Slot
After playing this game, you’ll never think of 3 reel slots as the simple alternatives to the 5 reel games again. Firestorm 7 may only have a single win line, though it certainly does not lack excitement – both with the potential to hit big wins and the free spins bonus game. This slot is all about fire, and the entire screen will sometimes become bathed in flames. There are lighters, cans of gas and talks of even more volatile material on the reels. The game is backed by a driving classical music soundtrack that would not be too far out of place in an action scene of a movie.
When you first see the reels, the contrast between the bright red surround and the bright yellow canisters of flammable liquid jumps right out at you. There is no pay table on the screen; this is hidden away behind 2 buttons at the top corners. The controls are on silver pipes which go right around the reels. The main buttons are flaming, with bright reds and oranges – along with light reflection effects.
Within this cascade of fiery colour are the plain white of the reels. These are slightly curved, with blocky and simple symbols on them which include the 3 different bar symbols, red and golden sevens, what looks like a zippo lighter, a can of gasoline and what could be a container of compressed flammable gas.
Sparks fly upwards across the reels and that driving music gives the game an overall edge of anticipation as you play. You’ll hear some ‘searing’ sounds as the reels spin, and distant thuds as the reels stop. Wins get sound which could be a jet of flame, this repeats until you spin again – my only (admittedly minor) gripe with this slot.
