The Year of the Fire Rooster
If you are at all interested in the Chinese Zodiac, then you will be aware that 2017 is the year of the rooster. But not just any old rooster, this is the year of the Fire Rooster! This is because the Chinese Zodiac also takes account of the five different elements that rule over the natural world – water, metal, wood, earth and fire! People who are born under the Fire Rooster zodiac are believed to be Trustworthy and reliable with a good sense of timekeeping. They are also said to be able to handle the highest spice level at Nando’s without even having to take a sip of water!
From a visual point of view, this oriental video slot is quite a treat on the eyes. The reels are set over a peaceful monastery setting while various icons spin in the foreground, including some standard playing card values (10, J, Q, K and A) as well as some beautiful gems. Other symbols include a range of creatures, from centipedes to almighty dragons. However, none of those beasts have the power to overcome the might of the game’s wild rooster icon which will substitute for any ordinary icon on the reels!
Wins All over the Board
Fire Rooster is a 243-way slot machine, meaning that punters can expect plenty of winning opportunities as they only need to line up three matching icons on adjacent reels to find a prize. This does mean that the general size of the prize will be lower than more high volatility slots online, with a range of base game payouts that go up to 1,500x the value of the coin in play. That top payout is awarded whenever punters come across five crown-wearing roosters on consecutive reels.
Since there are no defined paylines on the game screen, punters will notice that their chosen bet value is multiplied by 30x to calculate the overall total stake. With that in mind, players can place a minimum wager of just 0.30 credits with the maximum limit going as high as 600.00 credits. As you can see, there is plenty of scope for both casual punters and high rollers to make the most of this online slot machine.
With such a low range of payouts in the paytable, you may be thinking that this slot machine isn’t quite as fiery as we’ve let on. However, the game offers some explosive features to help punters set their wins on fire. First of all, there is a crown scatter symbol that triggers 8, 18 or 28 free spins whenever three, four or five appear in any reel position.
During this round of free games, a special Fire Rooster wild will appear with the potential to literally blow up on the reels to offer more lucrative wild wins. On top of that, players might notice that the game has a number of progressive jackpots listed above the reels. These ever-growing prizes can be unleashed at any time, after any spin, to any punter. What better way to celebrate the year of the Fire Rooster?!
