Fire Hawk Slot Review

There are quite a few slot machines that have a Native American theme and here’s another one, this time from NextGen Gaming. They have an excellent record in producing quality slot games and here’s another to add to the list.

This is a five-reel slot that has a total of three rows and you can decide whether or not to activate up to 20 paylines. Playing the game costs you between £0.01 and £40. Whatever stake you decide to make, simply ensure it’s one that you are financially comfortable with and carry on enjoying the game.

The look of the game is a good one as is the case with most NextGen games. In the background there’s a view of the desert with mountains in the distance. I half expected to see a Bon Jovi guitarist on top of one of them playing ‘Bed of Roses.’

Symbols in the game include a squaw, a peace pipe, a drum and a dream catcher. Padding out the reels are the nine to Ace symbols that have a colourful look to them but have nothing to do with the theme of the game.
More fitting with the theme is the wild symbol in this game. That’s the really colourful Red Indian chief with his red and white headdress. He’s not on all of the reels though, just the second and fourth. Keep an eye out for this symbol as it substitutes for other symbols in the game apart from the Fire Hawk which is the scatter symbol here.

Even better with the wild is that when it does get you a winning combination on reel two you get a 2x multiplier and if it’s on the fourth reel then it’s a 4x multiplier. The one to look out for is when the wild completes wins on both reels as this gets you a 8x multiplier. All very handy wins indeed.

Also sounding handy is the gamble feature but be really careful with this. Again it’s the guess the colour or suit of the next card to either double or quadruple your win. You can do this five times if you want but it’s a difficult task and you lose everything with just one wrong choice. Just try doing it with a pack of cards and see how many times you can keep winning.

Bonus Games

If you fancy some free spins and face it, who doesn’t, then you need to get three or more of the Fire Hawk symbols anywhere on the reels. Before they start you’re given a choice. You can either have ten free spins with a 4x multiplier, 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier or 20 free spins but with just a 2x multiplier. Plump for the middle one I reckon. It’s possible to re-trigger the free spins during the bonus round.

Conclusion

‘Fire Hawk’ is a fairly straightforward game to play. The multipliers attached to the wild and the free spins round can bring in some decent wins, so it’s well worth playing this for a while.
