Roasty McFry and the Flame Busters is a slot by software developer Thunderkick that has been given an exceptionally long name. Luckily, the game itself is exceptional too. While the game is loading, you can read that the slot comes from the year 1986 and that definitely fits the animations and vibe of the slot. Thunderkick hasn´t gone for exquisite 3D graphics but instead has created a slot that packs the elegance and efficiency of the kind of arcade games that were at the top of their game in the 80’s. Still, the game plays as a modern and sophisticated slot.
How to play Flame Busters?
The title of the slot usually gets abbreviated to Flame Busters, and the slot is easy to play. With its five reel and three rows, there isn’t much surprising going on layout-wise. Add to this the 243 ways to win instead of the use of pay lines, and you know it won’t be hard spotting wins being formed. All animations are arcade-style and are the inhabitants of the three story apartment block. More about this later. The big W symbol functions as the wild symbol and can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter. At the bottom of the slot, you can alter your bet. Also, here, you can find the autoplay, which you can activate if you want to sit back and let the game spin and place bets automatically.
The fires in Flame Busters
There is a great backstory behind the title of the slot. The game revolves around the fire fighting squad you find alongside your reels. Your playing grid, the three story apartment block inhabited by the characters on your reels, can catch on fire. These fires start while the reels are spinning and can only be put out by the firemen after the reels have come to a halt. All animations in burned positions will be identical and lead to big wins.
Wins get even more significant if you’re lucky enough to trigger the Fire Drill. One or more of the lower-value symbols get replaced by spreading flames. The more positions catch on fire, the larger your wins will be!
Bonus game on Flame Busters
When three alarm bell scatters land your reels, the bonus game gets unlocked. Also, once this happens, the bonus symbol you find at the bottom of the slot will start lighting up. You receive a total of 10 free spins which you can start playing immediately.
This free spins mode is where Flame Busters really takes off. When spinning for free, if you find another three scatters, you get to claim an additional 2 free spins and permission to climb up to another level in the housing block. Additionally, the higher you get, the more mystery flames will get triggered, meaning that more low-value symbols get transformed into higher-value ones.
Pay lines and jackpot on Flame Busters
Flame Busters does not make use of pay lines. Instead, it plays with 243 ways to win, and one of the biggest advantages to come from that is that it’s relatively easy to know when a win is forming. The slot isn’t equipped with a jackpot, but with a bit a luck, your wins will be ablaze. All in all, this game owes its success to its arcade elements and high-paying features.
