For girls who enjoy a man in uniform and guys that fancy themselves capable of pulling off death-defying rescue attempts, Ash Gaming’s Firemen slot provides the perfect mix of hunks and heroism. Played out on a five-reel, 20 payline gameboard, Firemen looks entirely different from other slots in that its reel spaces are actually the windows of a building. When a spin is started, blinds are pulled down and then opened to reveal a new set of symbols, with players needing to look out for the all-important burning scatter symbols, which can be used to trigger one of three bonus effects.
As the name would suggest, Firemen features a rescue theme that sees two fire-fighters turn up at the scene of a blazing building. The symbols that feature in the 15 windows that make up the slot’s gameboard include firemen, women, old ladies, cats and vases of flowers, with the game’s logo acting as a substitute wild. A range of appropriate sound effects also add to the atmosphere as the two heroes aim their hoses at the reels, while a slick piece of jazz plays during each base game spin.
The main things to look out for in Firemen are the burning scatter symbols that can randomly appear during any base game spin. These symbols then cause adjacent symbols to catch fire and spread randomly around the gameboard, with all burning spaces then rewarding one of three bonuses. Firstly, all burning scatter symbols can transform into substitute wilds to create winning paylines. Secondly, they can all change into instant cash prizes that are added together to create your total win. Lastly, they can trigger the inferno bonus feature where players must aim their hose at the reels and put out the blazes, with each successfully quelled fire awarding a cash prize until “collect” is hit.
Like most Ash Gaming consoles, Firemen features an incredibly straightforward user interface with clearly labelled buttons controlling all of the major variables. The game’s 20 paylines are fixed at all times, meaning players need only select a line bet amount between £0.01 and £5.00 each spin. This makes the slot playable from £0.20 to £100.00 per game, with a turbo mode button enabling faster spins and an autoplay menu allowing players to queue up to 99 consecutive games in a single click.
Firemen takes a relatively simple theme and brings it to life thanks to its smoking hot graphics and sound. The console itself looks like nothing else in the Ash Gaming catalogue and the simple but enjoyable burning scatter bonus system can really see your bankroll catch light when enough symbols become embroiled in the ever-expanding blaze.
