Fire Strike bonus features
This may not be a feature-packed game like a more modern video slot, but Fire Strike still has plenty to offer in the way of exciting bonuses. The main symbols you’ll want to look out for are the Fire Strike and Fire Strike Wild symbols, which can quickly see your bet turn into something spectacular.
The Fire Strike bonus is the feature to look out for since this is where the big prizes lie. This feature is as simple as Fire Strike symbols appearing anywhere on the reels and activating a multiplied win. You’ll need at least six Fire Strike symbols on the reels (regardless of paylines) for things to kick off.
The prizes are awarded as follows:
- Six symbols: 1x your stake
- Seven symbols: 2x your stake
- Eight symbols: 8x your stake
- Nine symbols: 25x your stake
- 10 symbols: 50x your stake
- 11 symbols: 150x your stake
- 12 symbols: 500x your stake
- 13 symbols: 1,000x your stake
- 14 symbols: 2,500x your stake
- 15 symbols: 25,000x your stake
The Fire Strike Wild symbol can also come in handy, as not only does it substitute for other symbols to complete paylines, but it can stack across reels to help award more prizes. If you find five of these symbols across a payline, you’ll also be awarded 200x your stake.
There isn’t a free spins round in Fire Strike, but with plenty of other action going on, you won’t miss it.
Fire Strike jackpot
Though it’s not a progressive jackpot slot, Fire Strike does have a grand jackpot prize of 25,000x your stake if you fill the entire reels up with Fire Strike symbols.
RTP and volatility
As mentioned earlier, Fire Strike offers slightly less variance than previous Pragmatic Play slots – and we loved the medium volatility action. We found prizes to be paid out slightly more frequently, and a good mix of low and high wins to come through. The return to player of 96.5% is also quite nice, sitting on the higher side of average.
Fire Strike on mobile
The simplistic nature of Fire Strike allows it to be played easily on all devices and screen sizes. We found this to be a great slot to play on mobile since it’s easy to sit back and watch the reels spin in search for Fire Strike symbols.
