Flame busters is a 5 reel slot from Thunderkick Gaming that has a fixed 243 paylines. This ensures that no matter what stake you may be playing this 1980s graphics style slot at, you will always have the maximum amount of wins available to you. The staking options give players of all sized budgets an opportunity to play Flame Busters with the minimum stake being just €0.10, a good selection of bet sizes can then be found before reaching the maximum bet of €100.
I've added the paytable above so you can see what the best paying symbols are, and on Flame Busters The W symbol acts as the wild. Randomly during your gameplay positions on the reels will become alight, the firemen will then extinguish these and they can change to any of the game symbols.
FLAME BUSTERS SLOT FREE SPINS FEATURE
10 FREE SPINS AWARDED FOR 3 SCATTER SYMBOLS ON FLAME BUSTERS SLOT
10 FREE SPINS AWARDED FOR 3 SCATTER SYMBOLS
The free spin feature is triggered by landing 3 or more of the fire bell symbols anywhere in view, if you land 3 you will be awarded with 10 free spins, for 4 you will be given 15 free spins, and for all 5 you will receive 20 free spins.
Once the feature begins, you are looking for as many of these fire bell symbols to land on the reels as possible, the more you collect the quicker you will move up to the next level.
MOVING TO THE NEXT LEVEL & REPLACING A LOWER VALUE SYMBOL WITH THE FLAME ON FLAME BUSTERS SLOT
2 EXTRA FREE SPINS ADDED FOR EVERY LEVEL UP ON FLAME BUSTERS
After you have collected 3 of the scatter symbols the firemen will climb up to the next level, each time this happens one of the lower paying symbols will be replaced with the flame, this means that the firemen will put out the fire and replace it with a random symbol every time it lands. For every level up you will also receive an extra 2 free spins.
The aim here is to get to the top floor and to eliminate the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, this will leave you with just the premium paying symbols and the chance to hit some monster sized wins. Unfortunately you can't re-trigger the feature, so getting up the levels for the extra spins can make all the difference.
FLAME BUSTERS SLOT FIRE DRILL FEATURE
FIRE DRILL FEATURE ON FLAME BUSTERS SLOT
The fire drill feature triggers randomly during your gameplay, from here the game will decide what symbols for 1 spin only will be replaced by fire. From my experiences you need to be eliminating at least 4 of the symbols to stand a chance of hitting a decent win.
FLAME BUSTERS SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
I find Flame Busters to be quite a quirky game with its 80s style graphics and soundtrack, and there is without a doubt some massive potential on this slot for a big win.
However as with some other Thunderkick slots like Pink Elephants, the bonus can be absolutely dreadful, I've lost count of how many times I've won under 10 times my bet on the feature, obviously you can't expect every feature to pay a massive win, but when it gives you x5 your stake for the total free spins you do wonder what the point of actually giving you the feature to start with was.
I do still play this as I've never reached the top floor, but will now only ever play it for 1 feature and then leave, luckily the features as a rule aren't too expensive to land.
