Flame Dancer Slot
This Novomatic designed slot is based around the famed fire eating flame dancers found in Hawaii. The flame dancer is the wild symbol and plays a major role as it expands to fill a reel every time it appears.
This is joined on the reels by a smoking volcano, bongo drums, a guitar and a coconut cocktail, while two flaming sticks act as the scatter symbol. The high point of this slot is certainly the free spins feature round, where you’ll find many more wilds inhabiting the reels.
How to Win on Flame Dancer
The smoking volcano is the highest paying symbol of all, worth an eye catching 2,000 coins when you land the maximum five in a row. The drums are worth 750 coins for hitting 5 in a row, while both the guitar, which comes complete with a garland and the cocktail pay 400 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A which pay between 100 and 150 coins for a full house of 5.
The flame dancer himself is the wild symbol and only appears on reels 2 and 4. This might seem a little disappointing at first, but this wild symbol will expand to take up the entire reel every time it lands. This can be especially good if it appears on both reels 2 and 4 at the same, as you’ll have two completely wild reels, giving you a great opportunity for a bigger win.
Every time you win you’ll have the opportunity of gambling (this is not available during auto play). You’ll be presented with a face down playing card and your aim is to predict the color of the card. If you get it wrong, your win has gone up in flames, but get it right and your win amount is doubled.
Go Wild with the Flame Dancer Free Spins Feature
The flaming sticks represent the scatter symbol and appears on all 5 of the Flame Dancer slot reels. Land three anywhere and you’ll win 40 coins, land 4 and 200 coins are yours, while landing 5 will see you pick up 500 coins. However, three or more scatters will also see you enter the free spins feature.
You’ll be awarded with just 7 free games and once again you might feel a little disappointed. But never fear, as these free games offer the potential for some huge wins. This is because the volcano, the drums, the guitar and the cocktail all transform into wilds, meaning the reels will have wilds everywhere. This can lead to many of the 20 win lines all paying out at the same time.
Serene Design and Setup
The backdrop to the reels shows a sea scene with volcanos in the background, the night sky turning the entire scene blue. The symbols sit on top of yellow/cream colored fabric reels, while all of the symbols are designed in a nice array of colors. The standout symbol is the flame dancer himself, as after expanding you’ll see him actually perform the ‘flame dance’, while you’ll also see some small animation with the other theme relevant symbols. The accompanying sound is good as you’ll hear chanting and the beating of drums joining the more generic sounds when you land a win.
Flame Dancer slot machine is something of a standard five reel slot, each of the reels showing three rows. The game has a total of 20 win lines, although you can opt to play any number between 1 and 20, while you’ll also choose your coin value for each of the win lines. Options at the game include muting both the sound effects and the music, while a simple one click auto play option is ideal for those who want to sit back and enjoy the game without too many mouse clicks.
In some ways this Novomatic slot is true to the game play that has made these games popular over the years – you have the almost standard base game, the wild and the scatter which activates the free spins feature. However, there is also some nice variety here. Firstly the wild symbol is an expanding one, meaning wins can come larger than usual. Secondly the free spins feature, with all of those extra wild symbols, can be profitable despite the relatively low number of spins. All in all this makes for a solid game which is certainly worth a spin or two.
