Greeky mythology is always a fun one to explore, fearsome creatures, mighty gods and heroic deeds are all part of the mythos that intrigues and captivates to this day. It’s little wonder then why many developers use the timepiece as the setting for their games.
Fire Lightning sees players using icons and symbols from the Greek pantheon to try and land some big winning combos all while using godly magic to score some bonus games.
Let’s have a look and see if BGaming has done enough to this theme to make it stand out against the many others that fall within the same category.
Theme & Symbols
Picture a video slot game based around Greek mythology and you’ve got a good idea as to what this title entails.
The background is set to a backdrop of stars, a deep shade covering most of the area with lots of little stars poking their way through.
The music that plays alongside the game is incredibly mellow, it’s not something you would expect from a grand greek odyssey. Sound effects can be loud and in your face, it is definitely a weird combination, you might be better off just muting the audio all together.
Animations are alright, the reels spin smoothly but unfortunately the animation of the symbols on a winning spin is a bit bland. Nothing too eye catching. It’s a bit of a disappointment considering how powerful the theme could be.
Overall presentation of the title is average, nothing too spectacular but if you’re looking for something subtle to play, this might be for you.
To begin, the basic low-paying icons are all based on the Greek alphabet. Expect to see symbols like Omega and Sigma etched onto stone medallions. In total there are five low-paying icons.
Moving on to the high-paying symbols we have gods and heroes of the pantheon, keep an eye out for Athena, Zeus, Ares, Hercules and others. There are six of these icons in total.
Up next is the Scatter Symbol. This is represented by a big icon with the word ‘BONUS’ written across it. These are used to trigger certain bonus gameplay features.
After that is the Wild Icon, this one has the power to substitute for any other common symbol in the game. To make it easy to spot it is represented by an icon with ‘WILD’ written on it.
Finally we have the Fire Lightning symbol. This one is probably the easiest to recognise due to the crimson red colour of its icon. This one also has a unique gameplay feature.
Betting Options & Features
Fire Lightning is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot game that has a modest 20 paylines and a RTP of 97.61%.
You’ll be able to score yourself 10 bonus spins if you manage to land 3 scatter symbols during a spin. Even better is the fact that all Wild Symbols become sticky during the bonus spins, making your chances of landing a winning combo increase. By landing more scatters, you are able to retrigger this feature an unlimited number of times.
