Fire N Dice slots are devilishly fun games with a deceptively-simple appearance and surprisingly wide variety of bet sizes. Microgaming Solutions has produced a number of traditional-style slots that are closer in style to UK pub machines than classic slot games.
Don’t let the arrangement of three reels and a single pay line fool you; bonuses in the form of free spins are what you should be after. The bonus game takes place on a second screen with a layout of five pay lines and three reels. The wage multipliers won during the free spins go up as high as 500x – that can be worth as much as $5,000 depending on the credit size you select.
Play Fire N Dice
Like other Microgaming pub slots, the name of the game tells you most of what you need to know about the theme. The word fire references the game’s basic style; the bride of the devil (in a flaming hot and quite revealing costume) is the main character. The word dice is a reference to the way the bonus game determines jackpots – lining up combinations of dice symbols on the five pay line bonus screen leads to big multipliers and jackpots based on your triggering stake.
How to Play
The main game uses just three symbols, all common to classic slot machines: a bar, a seven, and a bunch of cherries. When three of any of these symbols line up on the pay line (helped out by randomly-triggered nudges that help the player turn a losing combo into a winning one) the player is taken to the free spins feature. Three cherries grants five free spins, three bars grants ten spins, and three seven symbols leads to the largest free spin reward in the game, fifteen free spins that play out automatically on the bonus screen.
Strategy & Tips
Pub slots in the UK are a hybrid of classic slots and bonus games. Though this title doesn’t use any wild or scatter symbols, it is designed to launch tons of bonus rounds. Those bonus rounds are all automatic free spins which hand out different sizes of multipliers. Good strategy on games that pay lots of multiplier rewards says you should bet with credits set as high as you can afford.
Besides betting at least $1 per spin (wagers lower than that aren’t worth it – if you must bet a dime or a quarter, play a penny slot or classic game designed for bets of that size), the only strategy for Fire N Dice is to use the arrow feature that lets you peek above and below the reels to see what symbols are hiding; if you have nudges built up, you can bump the reels and knock those symbols into position. Avoid gambling your nudges unless you’re the type that just can’t pass up a bet.
