Flame Dancer Pokie Review
Say “Aloha” to ‘Flame Dancer’, a Hawaiian themed pokies game release from the Novomatic stables. The colour palette consists of blues, yellows and pinks so you may feel inclined to pop on a pair of sunnies if you are going to spend too long playing this game. The gameplay itself is pretty standard, featuring smoothly scrolling reels displaying various Hawaiian-themed images.
The playing experience is sound-tracked by jaunty tropical beats to get you into that ‘hula’ state of mind, and when you come across a good winning line the bongo drums beat even more enthusiastically to match your mood.
This is a 5 reel game with a respectable 20 pay-lines giving plenty of opportunities to win. You can play with any amount ranging from 2 to 200 coins per line depending on whether the tropical pokies gods are smiling in your direction.
About This Pokie
Coins Range:0.01 to 2.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:7/No
Wild Symbol: The wild symbol in Flame Dancer appears in reels 2 and 4, and is represented by a fire breathing islander. When it is triggered flames light up the screen and it expands to replace all the other symbols on the reel.
Scatter Symbol: The scatter symbol is represented by two crossed flaming torches, and when three of these appear on the screen it launches the free spins segment of the game, which is by far the best part of this pokie.
Free Spins: You can unlock 7 free spins, which may not seem like a whole lot, but this is how you make big profits playing the Flame Dancer game. Now every flame throwing wild symbol you see during these seven spins will replace all the regular Hawaiian images, which in turn will unlock some big money payouts.
Gamble Feature: The gamble feature on Flame Dancer is disappointingly mundane. It is a simple 50-50 bet on whether a card turns up red or black, and does not make any attempt to integrate with the Hawaiian theme of the main playing screen. Yes you can double your winnings, but unfortunately, the graphics don’t add anything to the overall game-play.
When you are playing in the free spins segment of the game you can win up to a monster 400,000. So look out for those flaming torches to light the way to some major pay-outs.
This is a decent if unspectacular pokies game, raised to a higher plane by the excellent free spins bonus which is where the game really takes off. Combined with the colourful graphics and cheerfully frenetic bongo beats Flame Dancer emerges as an entertaining pokies in terms of playability. The major let-down is the drab gamble feature, which adds nothing in terms of the aesthetics of the game.
Overall, Flame Dancer rates as one of the better pokies games from Novomatic, so don’t be surprised to find yourself returning to this tropical pokies paradise again and again.
