Fire Archer Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
We are just over a week into January, and there are already slot announcements for February. Popular provider Pragmatic Play has 6+ scheduled releases for January, starting the year off strong in the market. My most recent game review for the provider was ‘Monster Superlanche‘, which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with a Multiplier Meter. In today’s review, we are learning all about ‘Fire Archer’, which is set to release on February 2nd across all sites!
This game is based on the heroic outlaw Robin Hood, who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. He is known for his impressive skill with archery and swords. Originally seen in English Folklore. The story has been used in a wide range of storybooks, Tv Shows and Movies. Robin Hood’s archery skills are now used in this slot, firing at targets to award innovative mechanics. The game background looks to be set in Sherwood Forest. Robin Hood is standing bow at the ready on the right side of the reel set. The game background shows off the beauty of Sherwood Forest, with detailed depth and pleasing use of colours. The slot itself plays smoothly, with a range of fun animations and a relaxing soundtrack.
Fire Archer has a setup of 5 reels by 5 rows; this includes 25 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.07% and a max win capped at 4,000x. You can bet from £0.01 to £125.
Fire Archer Symbols & Pay Table
There are 12 symbols in total; this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols; these are represented by Beer, Robin’s Hat, Bags of Gold Coins and Robin Hood. In addition to these regular symbols are a Super Wild, Regular Wild and a Scatter. The highest paying symbol is the Robin Hood premium, which pays 20x for 5 across a pay line. The Super Wild substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter and appears on all reels. The regular Wild substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter and is added to the screen randomly by the Super Wild.
The Super Wild shows 8 directions around it. Every time it hits, 1 to 8 directions are highlighted at random, and Wilds will be added in those highlighted directions. Replacing all symbols in the paths up to the edge of the grid.
Fire Archer Features & Mechanics
Landing 3 scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. Awarding 5 Free Spins, during spins, there is one Super Wild which moves to a random position on each spin. The Super Wild symbol gets a random level from 1 to 8. On each Free Spin, a number of directions are highlighted on it, and Wilds are added to the screen in these directions. Replacing all symbols in their path. Landing 2 scatters during a Free Spin will increase the level by 1 and award 1 to 3 additional spins. This feature can be purchased for 100x your chosen stake.
Overall, I think this slot is a game that will do well on launch and includes an innovative mechanic which is the selling point. The theme is not an over used pick but a familiar one, especially to UK players. The Super Wild is the main attraction in the Free Spins feature. Awarding Wilds in different directions and a progressive level up. The Free Spins feature is perfect for high volatility lovers or Bonus Buy players.
