Horses have been around for a long time, maybe even longer than man and we can see them all around the world. Many software providers designed games that follow this theme, but Fire Horse is the best one we’ve seen so far.
Seeing a herd of them stacked on the reels will definitely fire up your screen with big payouts. The animations and visual effects are on a decent level, nothing too flashy, but the game is interesting and fun to play. Once you start spinning the reels you can stay there for hours chasing those evasive flaming gallopers to come on your screen.
Fire Horse is a game designed by IGT software. This provider has many video pokie games in their offer and are constantly working in increasing their portfolio. Many of their new releases are pretty good but Fire Horse is the best we’ve seen so far.
How to Play
This game features the 720 ways to win design. There are no standard pay lines and the symbols are distributed over 5 reels which have the 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 row system. This is called the MultiWay Xtra feature and allows for many winning combinations which can provide massive payouts.
The minimum bet is set at $0.50 making it a perfect game even for low rollers because the return can be very big. If you play long sessions you can always use the auto play button, giving your hand a chance to rest.
Fire Horse has several great features and only one classic bonus round. There is a free spins bonus which is triggered when you get 5 bonus symbols, one on each reel. This awards you with 8 free spins in total and there is no added multiplier to the bonus. Nothing too interesting but the IGT designers have a few surprises installed. The bonus symbols can come stacked across all reels and usually award a bigger number of staring free spins.
The maximum number of free spins you can get from one set of bonus symbols is 96. There is also the option to retrigger the free spins up to a maximum of 240 in the bonus round. This is the main characteristic for IGT video pokie games and is the main reason why many players decide to invest their money here. Another feature in the game is that the symbols can come stacked across all reels.
This makes way for big wins to happen even during base play. If we add the fact that the wild symbol can come stacked on the 3 central reels, with a bit of luck, big payouts are more than possible.
If you go through the game pay table you’ll be surprised to see that the maximum promoted payout is 25,000,000 coins. Any player would love to see this amount on their screen but to be real a win like that is impossible to trigger.
The highest paying symbol in the game is the Fire Horse logo awarding a 1,000 coin win for 5 of them on the reels and the brown and white fire horse awarding 400 and 300 coin wins for 5 of a kind combinations. This value continues to grow with each added symbol progressively.
We are happy to see that IGT is working tirelessly on improving their video pokie games collection. Fire Horse in our opinion is the best game we’ve seen lately and is very similar to their Siberian Storm Jackpot game. We were very happy with the results we got from real play and can recommend this game to everyone no matter of their staring bankroll.
We managed to increase our balance after a very short time because base play wins were small to medium and we got a few big wins thanks to the stacked wild symbols. The bonus round is easily triggered despite the fact that you need a bonus symbol on each reel. They usually land in a bigger number than the needed 5 and award a bigger number of spins.
We managed to get a few retriggers and our biggest win was about 120 x bet, but we know that this game is capable of producing much bigger winnings. We can recommend that you try it for real and hope that you get much better payouts than we did.
