Fire Opals Video Slot Review
Fire Opals is an IGT/WagerWorks powered slot game that has 5 reels and 720 ways to win. The theme is somewhat Hawaiian and has precious stones and volcanoes (sounds a bit odd right?). It’s very similar to the Siberian Storm slot game as it has a hexagonal structure with 5 symbols in the central reel.
Fire Opals features MultiWayXtra wagering and pays from left to right as well as right to left. Compared to Siberian Storm, it’s been enhanced with more free spins and scatters. It comes with a 2,000 coin jackpot which you can trigger by getting 5 Fire Opals symbols. Additionally, if you get 5 scatter symbols, you will win 100 times your stake.
The main feature of Fire Opals is the Free Spins Bonus feature – you can trigger this by getting 5 Bonus symbols across all 5 reels. You will also be given 100 credits before you start. You will then be rewarded with 10 free spins – what is great is that you can re-trigger more free spins. In fact, you can get up to 260 free spins if you’re lucky. You will also notice that the reels are richer and have more stacks of Wilds than the normal game reels.
Fire Opals is a great slot game but should be played by slots players with a bigger bankroll. I consider it to be a high variance slot game meaning that wins aren’t as frequent as other slots. However, rewards are bigger as a result (if you’re luck is in and your bankroll holds out!).
I’ve not had much like playing Fire Opals to be honest but the appeal of stacked wilds is definitely which makes this game tick. If you like stacked wilds, you can’t go wrong with Great Blue by Playtech (a classic!) or the similarly name Fire Queen by WMS Gaming.
