8 Balls of Fire by Yggdrasil & Reflex Gaming
Reflex Gaming has teamed up with YGGDRASIL to transport players to the island of Pyro Tiki in the sensational South Pacific for a taste of tropical life in 8 Balls of Fire.
The high volatility 6-reel, 20 payline slot gives players the chance to win up to 10,000x their stake by way of lucrative free spins, stacked wild symbols, a Wild Fire bonus, Pot Pick and Fireball Link features that promise to take the gaming experience to a whole new level.
The Free Spins feature is a volcano of excitement! To unlock this feature, players need to land three or more Scatter symbols. Once activated, they will be awarded eight Free Spins. The volcano spews out fireballs on each spin which create zones on the reels.
Landing prizes in these zones awards them. What makes this even more thrilling is the Volcano Prize, which is initialised based on the number of triggering scatters. The Free Spins feature can also be re-triggered by landing a bonus symbol inside a zone, doubling the volcano prize and offering endless opportunities to win big!
The Fireball Link feature adds a scorching twist to the game, activated by landing 8 prize Fireballs in either the base game or during Free Spins. Prize fireballs are locked in place while the remaining positions continue to spin. Players should watch out for the special X2 fireball landing, which doubles all prizes. If the entire grid is filled with prize fireballs, the 5000x Mega prize is paid out.
During the Wild Fire Bonus, the volcano unleashes its power, transforming its fire into a brilliant blue hue. A large blue fireball is launched, impacting the reels and turning all prize Fireballs blue. These blue fireballs serve as Wild symbols, creating the potential for substantial reel wins and the thrilling possibility of triggering the Fireball Link.
During the base game, any prize Fireballs in view are collected, with a random chance of triggering the Pot Pick bonus. Players are presented with a grid of fireballs, and touching a fireball reveals a pot. If three of a kind are matched up, the corresponding Prize Pot is won, and the 5000x Mega Pot can also be won!
