Powered by GameArt, Burning Flame is a classical style slot game from with five reels and five paylines. This game is 100% traditional regarding symbols and format, yet with modern visuals to provide the familiar theme with a new explosion of colour and visual attractiveness.
The icons are a classic combination of intense, juicy fruits like lemons, oranges and grapes, with the usual smothering of lucky sevens, bells and a star-shaped badge that is the game's Scatter symbol.
GameART has chosen to give a twist to this classic slot format, and that twist is lots of flames. The reels are set against a fiery red backdrop panel with more flaming fires behind the panel.
Although the title is Burning Flame, the game is more about the traditional "fruity" aspect that adds to the game's nostalgia and is the central facet itself. The fires are almost relaxing to look at and make this game an excellent choice to play in winter, yet in reality are merely primarily graphics and play no part in the gameplay.
The game's buttons have a more modern representation too, rather than trying to replicate the traditional land-based machine plastic-look buttons. Burning Flame is fundamentally some nice flame graphics and some regular icons in a modern setting.
Burning Flame has five reels with five paylines and a top prize of 1,000 times players betting stake. The paytable changes the award depending on a players total bet stake. Unlike static paytables that provide fixed coin values, this modern type of pay table has become increasingly popular to attract newer types of players.
Thus, new players will have accepted this format by now. Bet amounts here range from as little as 0.01 per line to 0.50 per line for a total stake of 2.50 per spin, making it a lower-value affordable game to play, similar to a traditional slot machine of yesteryear.
The star Scatter symbol here resembles a multicoloured sheriff’s badge, and its functionality is limited; it essentially pays out wherever three of them land anywhere on the reels, unlike the other icons that need to fall on the same line. Burning Flame has no free spins rounds or bonus games, choosing to rely on the conventional spinning reels formula rather than adding in design twists.
The other icons are a selection of classic fruits including grapes, oranges, lemons and cherries and the other regular, bells.
As far as an uncomplicated, established fruit slot game goes, Burning Flame has no significant flaws. However, neither does it have any notable features. Whilst it’s a simplistic, affordable game for the beginner or any player who likes their slots with little frills as possible. Otherwise Burning Flame is merely a typical casino slot game with a flame graphic to aid it in differentiating from its competitors.
There is one element worth considering - that by having only five paylines means that players chances of winning are racially decreased than if they had twenty-five paylines as in most typical casino slot games. Wins then are sadly too infrequent.
