Barcrest’s Burn ‘Em Up Video Slot Review

Burn ‘Em Up is a fiery fruit machine re-boot from Barcrest. Played using a 5 reel, 10 payline game engine, the highlight is the bonus round where up to 48 free spins are up for grabs. Also in play are symbol upgrades. Play this simple video slot on all devices from between 10p and £500 per spin.

The set up in Burn ‘Em Up is very straightforward. The dark reels are set within a flaming frame. There you’ll find a collection of classic fruit machine imagery. The melon, plum, orange and cherry symbols all pay up to 10 times your bet for 5 across a payline.

They’re joined by the single 7, double 7 and triple 7 symbol which award up to 10, 15 and 30 times your bet per payline respectively. Any combination of 3 or more single, double or triple 7 symbols creates a winner that pays up to 5 times your bet. The best of the standard symbols is the gold crown. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination and you can look forward to a right royal reward of 5, 20 or 100 times your bet.

Better still is the rather manic looking jester who is the game’s wild. As well as substituting the standard symbols, the wild can be extremely lucrative in its own right. A 3, 4 or 5-symbol combo results in a bumper award of 10, 50 or 500 times your total bet!

Burn ‘Em Up comes with Free Spins Bonus feature. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the Burn ‘Em Up scatter on the same spin and you’ll receive 12, 18 or 24 free games. During the bonus round, any win that includes a single, double or triple 7 is upgraded to the most rewarding triple 7 symbol with payouts to match. Re-triggers are possible too. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters for another 12, 18 or 24 free spins.

Burn ‘Em Up is a very simple video slot. The design and the gameplay is rather basic. This won’t be a game for players who enjoy a variety of extras and plenty of back story. On the other hand, filling the reels with wild symbols will give you a 5,000 times bet payout! If you’re an old school fruit machine fan, Burn ‘Em Up is a game to consider though.
