Phoenix Fire is not quite a modern game if you look at its design, classic for the most part, though the Phoenix Bird theme does work well and turns it into a game that you can play without getting too annoyed with the graphics. It’s a Playson release, so despite the classic theme you’re getting a design from a developer that knows what it’s doing.
Expect for a relatively small number of lines, only 10, even though you have 5x3 reels to spin each time. The game’s best winning combinations will pay $5,000, but with help from the only major symbol of the game, an expanding wild which benefits from re-spins, filling up the reels with winning symbols is not impossible, and that’s how the game’s potential of $50,000 can be fulfilled.
Betting and Prizes
While you play Phoenix Fire slot, you get the option to select the wager for each round, but only the total amount that will go into it. With 10 active lines in use each round, you pick from a list of bet values which ranges from $0.20 to $100. This should give you a line bet of $0.02 to $10 to use.
Select the maximum bet, and then look at the paytable, to see what kind of rewards you can get. The best combo, with the Red 7 in all its positions, will pay you $5,000 (50x the stake). Take into account the expanding wilds and re-spins as well though, as 10 winning combinations become possible thanks to them. The game can pay at most $50,000 in a single round (500x the stake).
Phoenix Fire Slot Features
It’s not going to offer you a long list of features, and in fact there is only one symbol that will fulfill a special role inside. It’s the only symbol to fit the Phoenix Bird theme, showing us this huge majestic creature and a Wild logo underneath. The main role of this wild symbol is to be a replacement in the various winning combinations which can be formed in the game. You only need it to appear on a line which has regular symbols of the same type, so that it can help them form a new combo. Given the expanding nature of the wild in the game, this is easy for it to do, it just need to be on the right reel and the rest takes care of itself. The middle three reels are the only ones that can get Phoenix Wilds.
Whenever you have a Phoenix Wild on the screen, a second feature will be triggered, a re-spin. It’s going to hold the Phoenix Wild in its current position, so only the other reels re-spin. Get additional Phoenix Wilds to land on the middle three reels, to get more re-spins. You can have a maximum of 3 re-spins this way, and you could end up with the middle three reels covered by wilds. This gets you 10 guaranteed winning combinations, of 4 or even 5 symbols each.
Theme & Design
Phoenix Fire’s main theme is interesting, and the majestic fire bird that gets the main role will be a lot of fun to have on the reels. The rest of the symbols, the ones you see often, will be classics though. This makes the game feel like a classic in many ways. The symbols which are present include the Red 7, the Bell, grapes, watermelons, oranges, cherries, plums and lemons, so they’re all standard choices for classic slots.
Phoenix Fire has its expanding wild with re-spins, so it can be an exciting game to play, despite its classic theme.
