Flame Busters Slot Review

Few titles have quite an imaginative theme as you will find in Thunderkick’s Fire Busters. Now only is the game themed on firefighting, it also has a very retro, old-school look which closely resembles arcade games, and other video game hits from the 70s and 80s. Throw in a little Ghostbusters-esque vibe, and you have got a great looking title.

Any player familiar with pixel art or retro games will appreciate the sleek and stylish design of Flame Busters. Admittedly, a modern audience may not quite enjoy the charm that the Thunderkick slot’s design has to offer. There are quite a few of these simplistic looking 5-reel titles around, and Thunderkick has developed their fair share. Arcader is another fine example of how great a slot can be when it uses a design from yesteryear.

Many people claim the graphics are not everything, and whichever way you happen to fall in this argument, we would agree. With that in mind, let us look at some of the other features that Flame Busters has to offer on its reels.

How to Play Flame Busters 

Thunderkick uses the same wagering menu in most of their games, and that is certainly what is on show here once more. The innovative game allows you to tinker with your bets, with a reasonably decent wagering range.

Bets can rise from 0.10 up to 100.00 a spin, which is not too shabby at all given that you are playing with 243 ways to win in this 5-reel game.

Flame Busters has an RTP of 96.1%, like many Thunderkick developed 5-reel games. Arguably the most disappointing thing about this low volatile game, though, is its non-progressive jackpot. Various character symbols can deliver wins worth up to 10x a bet, but little more than that.

A handful of special symbols can improve the situation, and they include:

  • Wild – The “W” icon is a wild symbol. It can substitute for any save for alarm bell scatters.
  • Scatter – Alarm bells scatters will trigger a free spin bonus when three to five of them appear.

Game Rules

Flame Busters Slot Features

Flame Busters is not a game which carries an immense number of special features. However, those which do pop up in the game should make it an enjoyable one. For instance, with a bit of luck, you can hope to walk away with the following:

Fire Drill Random Modifier

Flame Busters also comes with a randomly triggered modifier. This will only occur in the base game, so you should make a note of that. Once activated, you will see one of the lower-paying symbols transform into a fire icon. Again, this can happen to multiple emblems on the reels and will transform them all into the same one. The Fire Drill modifier is, in many ways, identical to the mode offered in the free spin round.

Fire Drill Random Modifier
Alarm Bell Free Spin Bonus

You will need 3, 4 or 5 alarm bells to start this mode with 10, 15 or 20 spins. Once triggered, the round allows you to collect further scatters. You will undoubtedly want to do this, as every three you pick up will unlock a brand-new floor and give you two additional spins to boot. Every floor unlocked also transforms the lowest paying icon available into a fire symbol.

Fire icons are essential. Any which appear (and are extinguished by the firefighters) will transform into the same symbol. This should see you essentially pocket wins with mystery icons. If this happens enough (and it might if you keep unlocking floors), you can snap up prizes which are worth far more than the 10x a line bet maximum win suggests.
