NextGen, known for its bold and explosive artwork, has created a fiery and electrifying superhero named Flame, who takes inspiration from cyberpunk and is set to begin melting your hearts in the month of April 2018. NextGen’s Flame personifies the true nature of fire, which includes peril, excitement, destruction, and life, in contrast to the one-dimensional depictions of rage seen in most fire-inspired characters in popular culture. Flame’s vibrant visual profile isn’t the only thing it has going for it, though; the player can also look forward to free spins, morphing symbols, and additional features that transform the reels, all set to the accompaniment of cinematic sound effects.
NextGen takes a novel approach to the slot machine’s iconography by introducing the lion, the wolf, and the eagle as the game’s highest paying symbols. Flame, the slot machine’s most important symbol, stands out above the rest with her metallic purple, orange, and blue coloring. In descending order of significance, the card suits are followed by the other symbols (purple lightning, blue droplet, green leaf, and orange flame).
Free Spins are activated by Bonus icons, and the morphing Wild (a combination of the Wild and Bonus Scatter icons) appears exclusively during the bonus round, substituting for any other icon. The best earning combinations consist exclusively of regular and hybrid Wilds, and they only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4.
Flames is a slot machine featuring 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, and players can wager anywhere from $0.15 to $75 each spin. Players can choose the Auto Play feature to spin the reels without interruption, and the feature can be turned off at any time or after a certain amount of “Auto Spins” have been used. Under the main menu icon, you’ll find an advanced options tab where you can change things like the Spin button’s location, the game’s volume, the quality of the background music, and the quality of the effects. Scatter icon strings pay either left to right or right to left, and any multiple combinations across separate paylines will have their payouts added together, with only the highest value icon formation per line being regarded to have occurred.
Here, the slot truly heats up, with Free Games and seven smaller bonuses that can activate at random. Players can expect win multipliers, symbol upgrades, and respin opportunities, all of which depend on whatever features are active. Any spin can trigger one of the following mini-bonuses, and three Bonus icons will activate 15 re-triggerable Free Spins.
The Cross Flare effect allows for victories to occur in either the left to right or the right to left direction.
Flare up is a mode that can activate multipliers of 2, 3, 5, 7, and 10.
The Fire Whirl feature causes flames to engulf the reels, multiplying any wins by 20 for any Lion, Eagle, or Wolf symbols that are caught in the blaze.
Burning embers: all standard playing card icons will instantly transform into Wilds.
The fire spontaneously combusts the lower-value emblems, transforming them into the more valuable Wolf, Lion, and Eagle.
With Wild Inferno, you’ll get an additional spin for each Wild icon on the reels, and you’ll get another re-spin if a new Wild icon appears. Wilds will grow and remain fixed in place while the reels are in motion.
Wild and Bonus icons will combine into one during the Fire Storm, increasing the chance of winning Free Spins.
Flame is a medium to high variance slot machine, with a theoretical RTP of 95.51% to 96.61% and a maximum win of 7,500 coins. In the main game, a $31.25 stake will yield $3,250, whereas the same bet in the bonus game with multipliers activated will yield $187,500.00.
Most NextGen releases offer a supreme visual experience along with a big chance of winning. It’s clear that the developer’s design team takes its brand seriously, as seen by the fact that they consistently deliver high-quality slot machines that cater to players who seek a more immersive experience.
