If you are a fantasy genre fan, you are guaranteed to love the taste of the blazing, medieval battle powered by Betsoft. The fantasy-themed slot machine released in July, 2017, slightly resembles the famous Game of Thrones series with its splendid visuals, 3D graphics and an overall epic feel. The beautiful but dangerous Shieldmaiden and the formidable Swordsman dominate the reels along with fire-breathing dragons placed above.
Fire & Steel uses 5 reels and offers 20 fixed paylines where you can bet up to 5 coins per line. The thrilling adventure is playable from $0.20 right up to $100 per spin. The 2017 Betsoft release boasts great 3D animations, a catchy soundtrack to match the theme, but also provides more than generous wins along with a non-progressive jackpot worth 2,500 coins.
Play Fire & Steel
The symbols on the reels are portrayed as the Swordsman and the Shieldmaiden that act as expanding Wilds but also trigger the Free Spins feature. They can substitute for all other symbols, even each other when calculating your payouts. Apart from them, players will also come across a crown decorated with a ruby, two types of shields, a golden chalice, books of spells, helmets and plenty of jewels that make up the lower value symbols.
How to Play
Fire & Steel is a 5-reel video slot with 20 fixed paylines. The coin's size ranges from $0.02 to $1.00 per payline. The player's stake can be as low as $0.20 and can go to a maximum of $100 on a single spin.
Besides the betting-related features, you also have the Autoplay button available if you don't want to spin the reels manually. The maximum number of automatic spins can go up to 100 times.
The Max Bet button is also included. This feature allows you to adjust the bet to the highest coin amount while spinning the reels at the same time.
An additional feature of this 2017 release is that it not only pays left to right but right to left as well.
Finally, the Double Up button introduces the gamble feature and you can use it to call heads or tails in order to potentially double your money or lose everything. On the other hand, you can choose to collect half of your winnings and gamble the other half.
Strategy & Tips
As you may expect, the most lucrative features revolve around the Swordsman and the Shieldmaiden. The male warrior releases a vertical beam, from above or below, thus turning every symbol in his path Wild.
The Shieldmaiden, on the other hand, releases a horizontal beam that converts symbols to her left and right into Wilds.
The Free Spins feature is activated when the two warrior's beams intersect forming a Clingy Wild and automatically awarding you ten free spins. Wild will remain in place throughout the feature which can improve you potential for winning even more. If you are lucky enough to get the Swordsman and Shieldmaiden's beams intersect on the reels once again, the free spins will be re-triggered and you will get additional 10 spins.
Finally, after every win, players have the option of using the Double Up feature that turns the video slot into a real gamble and can potentially allow you to double your cash by playing heads or tails mini-game.
Punters will be pleased to know that the innovative Betsoft software developer has made the 2017 release playable across all devices. The smooth gameplay and a high-level gaming experience remain the same regardless of the the device you choose to play it on.
