Fire Archer Review
This isn't the busiest slot genre of them all but plenty of studios have had a crack at it. The idea of grabbing handfuls of cash from the rich and distributing it to those more worthy is always a crowd-pleaser.
And Pragmatic Play has taken the theme and done it proud with its small but powerful selection of features. There is a lot of time spent in the base game but that's pretty standard for a high-volatility slot. The random super wilds will definitely keep you company while you wait for the main bonus feature.
We expect nothing less than perfection from a slot developer giant like Pragmatic Play. They have all of the resources available to produce incredible slots and they rarely fail to impress us.
As you would expect, Fire Archer takes place in a forest. And while there is no mention of Sherwood, we can probably assume that the story is staying true to its roots.
The game comes to life with some clever animated elements, and these mainly focus on the main character firing his deadly arrows at the super wilds.
The soundtrack is hard to describe. But imagine a stereotypical mediaeval tune and add a slight beat to it. It is a tad repetitive and you may well find yourself toggling the sound off after a while.
High-volatility games with only one main bonus feature have a tendency to leave players languishing in an uneventful base game for quite some time. Luckily, the addition of super wilds does just enough to remove this potential problem.
The free spins game is fairly elusive though, so prepare to be in it for the long haul. The great news is that this exciting adventure will keep you occupied for the duration and hold your attention nicely. And it is also available for mobile as well.
A 4,000x stake max win is not the biggest payout by any stretch of the imagination. For a high-volatility slot, some may say it is a little too low. However, the addition of super wilds will help keep your balance ticking along. So it isn't simply a case of watching it drain away while waiting for a profitable free spins bonus.
The RTP is a little over 96% and the maximum wager can be pushed up to 125. It is a fairly standard offering but when those wilds start firing out in all directions, there could be a massive maximum win waiting for you.
Pragmatic Play knows exactly how to keep slot fans happy with stunning designs and entertaining gameplay. Have they gone above and beyond with this production? Probably not. It is a great effort but it isn't groundbreaking stuff.
That said, it does have potential and if you are lucky enough to hit the spin button at the right time, then Fire Archer could prove to be an extremely worthy adversary.
