God of Fire Review
Inspired by fables and myths throughout history, God of Fire is a collaboration between Microgaming and Northern Lights to create a mythical slot all about a powerful god of fire. The slot plays on 5-reels with up to 60 million ways to win due to the UltraWays mechanic.
On top of the UltraWays, this slot features two different free spins options with added multipliers and exploding wilds! So take on the God of Fire and see if you can end up victorious.
It may not seem like much on the surface, but God of Fire roars with character as soon as you open up the slot. There are various flames throughout the screen with the infamous God of Fire to the left of the reels. He looks like a Greek god with the clothing but his face gives off a Viking feel which adds to the confusion. He doesn't do much on the reels and just grumbles until you hit the Super Free Spins which gets him excited.
There are some animated bits throughout this slot, but generally, the visuals do look a little dated. However, the symbols on the reels are clean and definitely fit in with the mythical theme at least.
Throughout spins, there is a drumroll to build up excitement with a cymbal crash to highlight wins. That's about it for the sound which is actually refreshing and doesn't add an obnoxious score throughout it.
As previously mentioned, this slot plays on 5-reels with the UltraWays mechanic. This is similar to Megaways and isn't too difficult to comprehend as it just increases the ways to win. Most of the gameplay for this slot is straightforward to follow but we found that we struggle to trigger the Free Spins and Super Free Spins which is something to be aware of.
In terms of buttons, you can find them all to the right of the screen with the spin button in the middle. Just above the spin button, you'll find the autospin with a further drop-down menu with the paytable. Underneath the spin button, you'll find the bet level and sound settings in case you want to adjust them.
God of Fire has high volatility gameplay which means high wins are less frequent. During our gameplay, we found that it took over 400 spins (yes 400 spins!) to trigger the Free Spins and even the Super Free Spins, but they were satisfying once it finally did.
Thankfully, the slot has a decent RTP of 96.06% and a solid maximum win of 18,000x your stake which can be achieved through the maximum UltraWays and through the Super Free Spins with modifiers. As previously mentioned, we struggled to trigger these modes so be aware of that.
As one of the first games with the UltraWays mechanic, God of Fire has a lot to live up to and sadly it doesn't quite match. The visuals look decent another along with entertaining gameplay, but it has extremely volatile gameplay.
It's difficult to trigger the features, but it is worth it when you do. The use of the hearts during the free spins is exciting to play with and the modifiers have some fantastic perks. This is definitely a slot game for high volatility players who love the thrills of less frequent but high wins. If you love high volatility slots, then this is definitely one to check out!
