Phoenix Fire Power Reels Slot
Phoenixes have been characters in myths and legends for thousands of years. Greek mythology depicted them as large fiery birds who gained new life by raising from the ashes. Their fiery feathers hold magical abilities.
This Red Tiger slot game holds some hot wins, thanks to the fortunes offered by the Phoenix Fire Power Reels. With great visuals, sounds and features, this game will have you ‘chomping at the bit’ for the big wins that lie in wait for those who are patient.
Theme, Soundtrack and Symbols
Set on an old parchment with traditional sketches of Phoenixes on it, the large reel set finds its place for play. The high-quality visuals are accompanied by a dramatic score that will make you feel like you are part of an epic magical adventure on the reels.
When the bonus round is activated, the screen background will burn orange as things heat up on the reels.
The game symbols work well to bolster the theme of the game, though we are not sure why Red Tiger Gaming did not opt to add low-value icons. The high-paying symbols include a Golden Chalice, Spell Book, Signet Ring, and a Scroll with a Red Feather. All low pays are represented by one of four card suit symbols (clubs, spades, diamonds, and hearts).
The Phoenix Wild symbol hits the reels with special powers, one of which is to substitute for all standard game symbols. There is also a ‘Free Spin’ icon, which is the key to triggering the game’s main feature. Winged Icons only receive power from the Wild symbol, which we will explain under the ‘Special Features’ section.
The game is played on a larger-than-average reel set of 8 columns and 6 rows. You will find 30 paylines in fixed positions over the reels. To rake in wins, you will need to land a symbol match of 3 or more icons on adjacent reels along one of those paylines. The combo can start on any reel and run from left to right.
Setting your wager is an easy affair. Simply toggle ‘+’ or ‘–‘ next to the bet display window, to set your total wager of between €0.10 and €40 per spin. Once ready, simply hit the large round ‘Spin’ button.
There are two valuable functions which can be triggered to make your life easier during gameplay if you so wish:
- Auto Spin: This function will afford you the ability to pre-set the game to spin a specified number of rolls (10 and 100) at a set wager. This will allow you to step away from the play for a while without missing out on the winning action.
- Turbo: If you select this function, the reels will spin and stop faster on every roll. You can, therefore, maximise your spins when under time constraints.
Special features are a valuable addition to modern slot games. This slot offers two:
When the Phoenix Wild symbol lands on the reels, it comes in expanded form, to cover three positions on a reel. If there are any winged symbols on adjacent reels to the Wild, they will also turn Wild to boost your winning opportunities.
On a rare occasion, the Phoenix may randomly turn all winged symbols Wild for huge wins.
Landing 3 Free Spin Bonus symbols on the screen at the same time will trigger 7 free spins of the reels. During this round, you can receive up to 3 Phoenix Wilds on the screen per spin, upping your chances of wins on every roll.
Play ‘On The Go’
When Red Tiger produces their casino games, they do so in HTML5 format, meaning that the games are equally desktop and mobile-ready. The games are already designed with the small screen in mind, hence the simplified controls on the interface.
Playing Phoenix Fire Power Reels on mobile will offer you the same crisp visual quality and audio as desktop games do, and all features remain intact. The game is well-optimized for touch play and controllability, so you can play in via various devices and platforms.
CasinoWow Game Verdict
If you are a lover of myths and legends, then this slot is right up your ‘alley’. The high variance must be respected, and you should plan your bankroll management safely and betting strategy well, so you can last through the dry periods and make it to the free spins.
The overall package is neat and concise, offering a good balance of slot entertainment, but we feel it lacks the ‘WOW’ factor a little bit.
