Fire Flies Slots

Fire-FliesFire Flies is an outdoors themed slot from Cryptologic and a game that I’ve enjoyed playing. That would mostly be due to my love for fishing, one of the activities that the game focuses on, but the mix of nature and marshmallows, with camp fires and cute wild animals, these all contribute to the slot as well. The camp fire is visible immediately behind the reels, with the forest all around that area and the tent where you will spend the night.

Fire Flies gives you 5 reels you can spin, plus 25 paylines to bet on. Cryptologic placed a $50,000 top prize in it, and at the same time you can find free spins, scatters and wilds among the symbols and features it offers.

Features of Fire Flies

Though chances are that the Fire Flies features will not impress you, or anyone else for that matter, they should be enough to keep you playing if you already love the theme, as I did.

The Wild symbol, surrounded by fire, is both the top jackpot trigger and the feature that will allow you to win more money in the long run, with the help of the combinations it will form. The wild is capable of substituting for symbols without special roles, so when you have the other symbols required for a combo, and there is only one other missing, the wild will take its role if it’s in the position where it is needed. It might sound like something that doesn’t happen too often, but it will be a rewarding experience in more than a few occasions.

Free Games Feature

The other fire symbol gives you the camp fire on it, and it’s a scatter. It’s not the kind that you can expect to trigger cash prizes though. The only thing you can get from it is free spins. The scatter appears only on reels 1 and 5, and when both are present you get 7 free games, plus a small prize worth 2x the bet. During these free games, expanding wilds will show up at random, on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Whenever the wild appears, you will see it reveal other hidden wilds on the screen.


Betting options and jackpots

With 25 lines that you can activate, plus coins that go as high as $10, the bets can reach $250 for a single round. You’re not obligated to wager that much, but it helps if you want the big prize. You can get a smaller number of coins to use in a spin, plus you can use smaller denominations ($0.01 is the smallest).

The reward, if you get the right five matching symbols, is worth 5,000 coins. With $10 coins selected, that puts $50,000 in your bank account.

Design and symbols

The camping theme you see here is very attractive, and I’m not speaking about the design alone. If you appreciate the wildlife and you would love to spend a few days in a tent, fishing and enjoying marshmallows done on the camp fire, then this slot is for you. It has plenty of wild animals that try to take advantage of the food that the humans have brought, and each one looks cute, even though they don’t look 100% realistic.

Symbols: Wild (wild, 5,000x), Camp Fire (bonus), Fire Flies Logo (2,000x), Bear (1,000x), Raccoon (400x), Tent (400x), Fish (250x), Guide 2 Outside (200x), Marshmallow (200x), Multi-tool (150x), Bug Spray (125x), Flashlight (100x) and Boots (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Fire Flies has been an interesting experience, mostly because of the theme selection. The free games are also fun though, especially since they don’t just mimic the base game and they actually give you something extra (expanding wilds in this case).

You will find Fire Flies at any online casino which chooses to use software from Cryptologic, playable either for free or for real money.
