Bells on Fire online slot is a 5-reel and 40 pay line video slot that mixes classic slot play with modern day online slot features. Stacked fruit symbols, 7s, bells, stars, and bars that all featured regularly on the button operated slots that were popular in the 20th century now feature over 5-reels with multiple pay lines.
There are 2 bet buttons on this slot. The yellow ‘BET’ option can be used to set the ‘Bet Per Line’ and the white ‘BET’ option is so players can set their total spin bet. Once either of the ‘BET’ options have been used to set the bet amount players can press on ‘AUTOSTART’ to set the reels spinning using the autoplay feature or press ‘START’ to control spins manually.
This is a low variance slot with plenty of scatter symbol as well as combination wins. The most frequent combinations are either 3 scatter symbols or combinations of 2 red 7s, which the latter is usually the wild symbol and 1 red 7. These smaller wins help to reduce the overall bet per spin. In the meantime, players will be waiting for the stacked symbols to connect multiple times over several of the 40 pay lines available in order to pull in more lucrative payouts.
The theme suits its purpose with a classic style slot design and cartoon style symbols. This is not a mega 3D slot and rather Amatic have chosen to go for a classic style slot design. On top of this, the sounds are reminiscent of classic slots play as electronic sound effects ring out when the reels are spun or when combinations connect. In-game sounds can be turned off if needs be. All players need to do is select the speaker button option, which will mute all sounds.
The red 7 is responsible for this slots jackpot payout. As it is stacked 4 symbols high on all 5 reels, there is the potential that players could land all 5 reels full of 7s. A combination of 5 7s pays out 1,000x the ‘Bet Per Line’. If all 5 reels are full of 7s, then this covers all 40 pays lines. Each pay line will pay x1,000 the ‘Bet Per Line’ 40 times over totaling up to a jackpot win of 40,000x the ‘Bet Per Line’.
Next, the bar symbol ranks as number 2 on the pay table for regular symbols. When 5 bar symbols hit the reels, players will receive a multiplier worth 300x the ‘Bet Per Line’. In third place, 5 watermelon or 5 grape symbols will pay out 200x, 80x, and 20x the ‘Bet Per Line.
Lastly, the final and lowest payout amount is shared by 4 different symbol combinations. These are the plumb, orange, cherry, and lemon symbols. Land a combination of 5 alike symbols on a pay line and the payout is 100x the ‘Bet Per Line’.
Scatter Multiplier: The scatter multiplier is the best paying stand-alone combination on the slot. It pays a multiplier of the line bet. 5, 4, or 3 scatter symbols in any position pays 250x, 20x, or 2x the total bet per spin. Comparable to line bets, this is around 10,000x the ‘Bet Per Line’ for 5 scatters.
Stacked Symbols: All the symbols are stacked on the reels in sets of 2, 3, and 4.
Gamble: Any win on the reels can be risked in the gamble feature. Players can bet half or all of their winnings in a game of chance. The first game pays double for correctly guessing the color of the next playing card that comes out of the deck of cards. Alternatively, players can attempt to guess the suit of the next card in which successfully doing so results in being paid quadruple the amount risked.
The bell on fire symbol is the wildcard on the Bells on Fire slot. It can substitute for any of the regular symbols. Therefore, if there are 3 red 7s on a pay line, and the wild symbol is also on the same pay line, the wild will become a wildcard red 7 symbol. As a result, the slot will pay out for a combination of 4 red 7s instead of 3.
