Burning Sky Slot Game
The intro screen to the Burning Sky slot is impressive, showing the sun setting over the sea. The sun is reflecting off the sea, giving the whole scene a deep red hue, the cliffs in the distance the only dark spots on the horizon. The ‘Burning Sky’ title sits proudly above the scene, the gold color of the lettering adding extra sheen to this introduction. The ‘Burning’ theme is all based around the burning wild symbol, which is much more effective than a standard slot wild. You’ll also find many traditional slot game symbols adorning the reels on Novomatic’s Burning Sky, alongside two scatters.
How to Win on Burning Sky
Despite having just five win lines, this slot does pay just like any other, in that you’ll need to land consecutive symbols from left to right. Your largest wins come when you can hit the maximum five in a row of any symbol, although lower payouts will come your way when landing just 3 or 4 in a row. The majority of the symbols are those which you might have found at any slot, including your red sevens, plums, lemons and melons. The red cherry also appears and as usual is the lowest paying symbol on the reels. Each of the symbols will appear stacked at times, meaning that multiple wins are a regular occurrence despite the relatively small number of win lines.
This game has two scatter symbols. The first of these is a silver star which appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. Landing this on each of the reels earns an immediate payout. The other scatter is the golden star and this symbol appears on all 5 of the reels. Unlike the standard symbols, the scatters will pay out when appearing on any position on each of the reels.
The final symbol you’ll see is the burning wild. As a wild symbol it will substitute for any other apart from the silver and gold star scatters. However this wild is much more beneficial than your average wild symbol as whenever it appears it will spread to encompass an entire reel. This symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. A dream scenario with this wild occurs if you can land one on each of reels 2, 3 and 4, making each of these reels completely wild. This will guarantee at least a 4 in a row for all of the win lines, which will improve to 5 in a row wins if the same symbol is stacked on reels 1 and 5.
Flaming Design and Setup
You might immediately presume that a slot which is filled with more traditional symbols might seem a little outdated, but it really doesn’t feel that way here. Firstly, the traditional white backed reels are gone, the sun reflecting off of the sea view forming the backdrop to the reels instead. The symbols actually add a nice splash of color to the dark scene behind, giving the game a very effective and modern look.
It is unusual to find a five-reel slot with just 5 win lines, but this does give the game added simplicity, as you’ll know immediately if you have landed a win – the win lines being the three horizontals and the two diagonals. The game screen has a number of options. The best of these is the auto play option where you’ll just stand back and enjoy the action without the need for any intervention. You’ll also find a variety of language options, an info button which will bring up the game rules and the pay tables and a flip screen option.
The game can be enjoyed on a variety of Novomatic cabinets including a number of the Novostar and Dominator range and the Novo Line Interactive.
It would be fair to say that Burning Sky isn’t the most expansive slot you’ll ever play. In fact, for a five reel slot it is probably one of the most straightforward games on the casino floor. However, the solid game play and burning wilds which spread over entire reels make this Novomatic game worth checking out.
