The Heat is On! Slots

The-Heat-is-On!The Heat is On comes from Nuworks and it’s one of their slot machines. Its theme is not that often seen, being inspired by firefighters and the dangerous situations they can put themselves in while trying to save others. It’s a theme that should get a lot more attention from developers, and Nuworks worked hard on it, using only themed symbols inside and a very good quality for the design.

25 paylines are on the slot’s 5 reels, along with the scatter symbols, the wilds and the features which they trigger, meaning free spins and multipliers in this case. The best prize mentioned is worth $5,000.

Features of The Heat is On!

The Fireman is the expanding wild, wile the Siren acts as the scatter. You can get a free games feature out of it, but the exact number you get depends on a bonus game that you go through first.

An important feature in any game is the wild symbol, and that’s especially true when it also has the power to expand and take over an entire reel. Wilds don’t give away their own prizes here, but they do substitute for all symbols, even for scattered Sirens. You will find that wilds only appear on reels 2 and 4, a limitation that I’m not too happy about.


The Siren scatter is also important, especially since you can get from it access to the feature that triggers the free spins eventually. The prizes are worth the same as the triggering bet if you have two to four of them present, but for five you get 100x the bet.

Free Games Feature

This feature is also somewhat of a bonus game, and it needs a minimum of three Sirens scattered around, to be triggered. When this happens, you are taken to a new screen, with a building on fire on it. Six burning windows are visible, and you see the Firemen on both sides as they try to put the fire out.


You get one base pick, plus one pick per triggering scatter. It means that you have between 4 and 6 picks to make. Each blaze that is extinguished offers you up to 30 free spins. The game has up to 180 free spins for you, a huge number of chances to get paid well without investing anything yourself.


If bonus characters appear along the way, then you will get a higher multiplier for the free spins as well. You start at 1x with the multiplier.

While the free spins are used, you can get 5, 15 or 100 extra free spins, if you have 3, 4 or 5 scattered Sirens present.

Betting options and jackpots

The complete betting range of the game is between $0.01 and $25. You may use a coin denomination of up to $1, and that’s also the line bet with which you can work.

5,000 coins are part of the best prize from The Heat is On. Their top value is $5,000.

Design and symbols

The design of The Heat is On seems to be just right considering the feature which was covered. You see the fire logo at the top, with buildings on both sides and plenty of smoke around, the place where the firemen are intervening. On the reels, you will get the fire and fireman related images, all of them in a high quality design.


Symbols: Fireman (wild), Siren (scatter, 100x total bet), Fire Engine (5,000 coins), House on Fire (2,500 coins), Man (1,500 coins), Dog (1,000 coins), Fire Hydrant (400 coins), Fireman Hat (400 coins), Badge (250 coins), Boots (250 coins), Axe (200 coins), Fire Extinguisher (200 coins) and Water Hose (200 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’m not too happy about the slot’s biggest prize, but the theme is one that I appreciate, and I’m sure that plenty of others will want to try it out as well.
