Burning Desire


Burning Desire Slot Review

You’re more than likely to have a burning desire to play this Microgaming slot game. They’ve been producing top level games for a couple of decades now and this is another successful release.

This is a five reel game that has 243 different ways of winning. For full information on all those wins have a look at the paytable. The cost of playing this game ranges from £0.25 to £250. You simply have to choose a coin value between £0.01 and £1 and then decide whether you want to play between one and ten coins. Simply choose a stake that you can afford and enjoy playing the game.

As you’ll expect there are plenty of burning images in this game. There’s flaming roses, diamonds that are on fire, bells that are alight. Other symbols are the nine to Ace symbols and a bar. Not much imagination there though which is a bit disappointing.

The wild in this game is the Burning Desire logo that’s on fire.It’ll certainly warm you up because it has the ability to substitute for all other symbols in the game apart from the scatter symbol. This really increases your chances of getting winning combinations. It only appears on the second and fourth reels though. The scatter symbol is the gold coin, this helps you get into the bonus feature, all about that will be revealed shortly.

The biggest prize in regular play is £30,000 but in the bonus game that increases to £90,000. Whenever you get a win there’s the option to gamble your winnings. This is the usual task of correctly guessing the colour of the next card to double your win, or the next suit to quadruple it. The only connection with the theme of the game is that the pack of cards has the Burning Desire logo on it. It’s still a handy way of getting more wins though but I’ve found that getting a succession of wins isn’t easy at all.

The control buttons are fairly basic in this game but easy to operate. There’s no autoplay feature in the game which is a little bit disappointing.

Bonus Game

To get into the bonus game you need to get at least three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. It’s free spin time and you get 15 free spins regardless of how many of the scatter symbols trigger the bonus. It gets better though because during the free spins all wins are tripled which explains how the jackpot climbs to a tasty £90,000. There’s no special features like cascading wilds or sticky wilds but the tripling of wins is worthwhile. It is possible to retrigger the free spins if you can get three or more of the gold coins again and that keeps the triple winnings going a bit longer.


You’ll enjoy playing this game but it’d have been good if they had played up to the theme a bit more. The bonus game isn’t the most exciting you’ll ever play by a long chalk. It’s efficient though and the tripling of your wins can help your account balance flourish.
