Fire Queen Slot Review

Meet the Queen, who sets the reels on fire, joined by her flaming animals. This latest release (2020) by Amatic, had us waiting in anticipation to see what we are in for. Fire Queen is Amatic's benchmark from what we can expect going forward. I'm in "flame-on" mode, released all the built-up gas in me, and ready to fight fire with fire.

Gameplay

Fire Queen is a 5x3 reel, 20 payline video slot powered by Amatic software. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (J-A), Flaming Goldfish, Snakes, Crows, Fire Foxes, Horses, and Castles. Special Symbols include the Fire Queen Expanding Wild and the Crown Bonus Scatter that triggers the Bonus Spins Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.

As far as controls go, on the top right-hand side, you will find the Home Icon (taking you back to the lobby) beneath that a Question mark Icon that expands to the Paytable and Game Rules, followed by Mute and Settings Icons. Below the reels, you will find the Win window and below that from left to right is the Balance window, adjustable Line window and Bet window. Next is the Max Bet, Autoplay and Spin buttons with increase and decrease Bet buttons on either side of the Spin button.

Features

The features in Fire Queen include the Fire Queen Expanding Wild and the Crown Bonus Scatter that triggers the Bonus Spins Feature.

The Fire Queen Wild substitutes for all symbols except the Crown Bonus Scatter in forming potential winning combinations. It can expand to fill the entire reel it lands on and can only land on reels 2, 3, and 4.

Land 3 or more Crown Bonus Scatters to trigger the Bonus Spins Feature, awarding 15 Bonus Spins. The Fire Queen Wild can transform adjacent symbols into wilds, and it is possible to win 5 additional bonus spins when 3 Crown Bonus Scatters land on the reels.

Unique Features

Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.

Performance

Fire Queen is a bit of a let-down, to be honest, as it doesn't provide innovative any features that we haven't seen before. It is also a pretty straightforward slot. The animation, design and graphics are quite average. The volatility is medium and the RTP is a disappointing 95.95%.

Max Win

The max coin win is 600x your stake.

Conclusion

So much for our anticipation. It seems that Amatic has forgotten that it is 2020 and thinks that they can get away with a slot that, firstly, has a below industry standard RTP and, secondly, quite poor design. The features are as old as dust. Flame Queen must have been doused by a fire hydrant, as her flames didn't even ignite the reels. I feel as though I need a refund.
