Fire Forge is based on the centuries-old legend about dwarfs who live underground as miners and metalworkers. As already mentioned, the slot game is pretty no-nonsense, so it doesn’t rely on characters and sophisticated graphics to keep players immersed.
That said, the pokies visuals do evoke the atmosphere of forging precious metals deep underground. The background has a dark, underground feel, with accents of red and gold glowing like coals. The symbols are all to do with mining and forging metal, such as Oil Lamps, Gloves, Anvils and Hammers, as well as 4 types of gemstones. The Beer Stein symbol gives us a hint as to what the dwarfs like to do when they aren’t hard at work…
Watch out for the game’s logo, which is the Wild symbol, and a molten metal dwarf, which is the Scatter. We will get more into what those do below.
Just as dwarfs are hard workers who don’t care much about appearance, so Fire Forge is more focused on creating engaging gameplay than graphics and gimmicks.
Sizzling Special Features
Speaking of engaging gameplay, Fire Forge is an action-packed pokie with all kinds of features. When it comes to regular wins, you are looking for matching combinations like a traditional slot. A nice addition is that with each win, the Rolling Reels mechanism is triggered, and the winning combination is replaced with new symbols.
We already mentioned the Molten Dwarf as the Scatter symbol. You only need to land one of these to enter the free spins round. But there’s a twist – you get to choose between three different combinations depending on the volatility you prefer in your slot game.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can get 3 free spins with a 6X multiplier increasing by +6 on each spin. If you want to play it safe, you can do 12 free spins at a 1X multiplier, increasing by +1 on each spin. For something in between, there’s the 6 free spins option, which has a 3X multiplier increasing +3 on each spin.
In addition, it is possible for the free spins to retrigger, meaning that the multiplier can keep going up until it hits the upper limit of x200.
We also mentioned the Wild symbol earlier, which is the Fire Forge logo. This can appear on columns 2-5, and acts like a traditional Wild that can substitute other symbols. On top of everything, there is also a stacked Wild feature, which can occur only on the last 3 columns.
