    Fire 88 by Pragmatic Play

    Fire 88, a slot game developed by Pragmatic Play, offers a unique blend of traditional and modern elements. This game, launched on April 12, 2018, features a classic 3x3 reel layout with 7 paylines.

    Game  Symbols and Features:

    Fire 88 caters more to players who prefer lower stakes. The minimum bet is as low as 0.07 coins per spin. This makes it an accessible game for casual players or those who prefer to play with smaller bankrolls​​​​, but may not attract high rollers or players looking for higher stakes.

    The game features symbols like Chinese coins, diamonds, and the 88 symbol, which is the most lucrative, offering 100x your payline bet. The BAR symbols, designed as Chinese firecrackers, pay between 3 to 15 coins. The gold dragon symbol acts as a wild, substituting for other symbols to create winning combinations, while the 88 jackpot symbol triggers the jackpot feature​​​​​​.

    Jackpot and Respin Features: The jackpot bonus is a pick-and-win game where you reveal prizes by selecting from different coin symbols. There are three fixed jackpots - Mini, Major, and Grand, paying 38x, 88x, and 888x your total bet, respectively. Additionally, landing two wild symbols triggers a free respin, with the potential for extra wins​​​​​​.

    Fire 88 has 7 paylines and pays from left to right, requiring three matching symbols on a payline starting from the first reel. The payout values in the paytable are applied to your line bet, with potential for higher prizes when betting more coins per spin.

    Symbols and Payouts:

    The most lucrative symbol in Fire 88 is the '88' symbol, offering a prize of 100 coins, or 100x your payline bet. Other high-paying symbols include the diamond and lucky coin, paying 60 and 30 coins respectively. The single, double, and triple BAR symbols, styled as Chinese firecrackers, offer lower payouts ranging from 3 to 15 coins.

    Wild Symbol:

    The dragon mask acts as the wild symbol, substituting for other symbols to create wins across the 7 paylines. A full set of wild symbols can pay out around 35 times your stake. The wild symbol also triggers the Respin feature when two dragon masks appear on the reels.

    Bonus Features:

    Jackpot Bonus Game:

    • Triggered by landing three '88' jackpot symbols, this pick-and-win game involves selecting from nine different coin symbols. Matching three coins of the same color (red, green, or blue) awards a corresponding jackpot prize. The jackpots are fixed, with the highest paying 888x your total bet, and the other two paying 88x and 38x respectively.

    Respin Feature:

    • When two wild symbols appear on the reels, a respin is activated. During this respin, the reels with wilds are frozen.
