Fiery Kirin Slot
Kirin is a mythological Chinese/Japanese horned beast that is said to pitch up at the arrival or passing of a sage or illustrious ruler. His presence on the reels is in honour of you - the illustrious ruler of the reels. Hopefully, the beast will rustle up some random features to help you on your way to big wins on Microgaming's Fiery Kirin.
Theme and Background
The semi-transparent fiery reels are placed on the backdrop of a mountainous canyon on a Chinese country hillside. The mediocre graphics are rendered in a somewhat cartoonish fashion and are accompanied by a culture-specific oriental tune to make you feel like you are in the East.
The game symbols are the highlight on the screen – and for good reason. These icons will combine to provide combination wins across the reels. Aside from the card deck royal symbols (10 to A), all other icons find apt placing in this Chinese themed offering. They include gold coins, a golden turtle, jade ornaments, a mountaintop image, a traditional temple, and a traditionally dressed lady with an umbrella. She will pay out 33,33x stake if landed in fives.
The Gong scatter symbol will land on the middle three reels. If all three reels are filled, it will trigger the free spin bonus round.
The Wild is the game Logo. If it lands on reel 3 in the base game, reels 2, 3, and 4 will expand to 4 rows high, and the middle reel will go completely Wild for 576 ways to win.
Played over 5 reels and 3 rows, all ways pay machines to work a little differently to patterned payline games. To win a reward, you need to land 3 or more matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels, from left to right, beginning with reel 1.
We advise that you set your stake carefully before spinning the reels, by toggling the +/- arrows to increase or decrease the total bet between €0.30 and €30.00.
The game is a set medium variance. This sort of volatility usually incorporates the best of the low and high variance worlds together, offering both frequent smaller wins and the odd high payout.
Fiery Kirin is stacked to the brim with extra features.
Throughout the course of the game, the Kirin can randomly appear on the screen and offer you random bonus features. These include:
- An additional Wild Reel on a spin.
- Extra Random Wilds across the screen.
- A losing spin can magically transform into a win.
- Scatter Re-spin opportunity. When 2 scatters land, a third reel will re-spin to try and land a third scatter so as to trigger the free spins.
Landing 3 scatter symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 will trigger the main bonus where you will be able to choose from 1 of 3 rounds to play:
- 5 free spins with super expanding Wild on reel 3 for each of the free spins, affording wins of up to 540x stake.
- 8 free spins with one of reels 2, 3, or 4 expanding to 4 rows on each spin, affording wins of up to 2,133x stake, per spin.
