Fire Horse is a unique and interesting online pokie from the developer IGT. This is one of those pokies that puts a significant amount of effort into being different, which is certainly welcome as there are so many online pokies that are so similar to each other.
The theme of Fire Horse, IGT, online pokie is a little difficult to nail down though. There are horses on fire in the game but that hardly helps to identify the game’s theme. As it turns out, it is actually based on a Chinese Zodiac sign, which is a slightly weak theme in our opinion. Still, at least it has given the designers some cool ideas for the artwork, which is always appreciated.
Fire Horse Features
One thing that you will immediately notice when loading up Fire Horse online pokie is the unusual arrangement of the reels. There are five reels, which is fairly standard, but instead of having the same amount of symbols on each reel, they’re different. The first and last reels have three symbols on them, the second and fourth have four, and the middle reel has five.
- Fire Horse offers players an incredible 720 ways to win. Rather than using traditional paylines, the game looks for the same symbols on adjacent reels. This works from left to right, as well as right to left.
- The game uses the Multiway Xtra technology to accomplish this, which has been used on other pokies as well.
- There are five theme related symbols, which are the Fire horse logo, a Fiery Horse, Icy Horse, a pot, and a silver coin. The lower value symbols are made up with J, Q and K.
- The Wild is represented by a glowing symbol that says Wild. It can appear on reels two, three and four and will stand in for all other symbols to create winning combinations, with the exception of the scatter and the bonus symbol.
- The Scatter is a Green Crystal that will multiply your total bet. Three will double your total bet, four will win you 10x your total bet, and five will win you 50x your total bet.
- The bonus symbol is a Purple Brooch and will trigger the free spins when you land one symbol on each of the five reels. This will award the player with eight free spins with a handsome multiplier.
