Game in Action
The reels in this slot assume the style of a house, with the individual symbols appearing in the many front “windows”. We have never seen this before, but it works and looks great. The symbols include letters and numbers, but the biggest paying ones are cats, a fireman and a woman. The slot itself has a very cartoony feel, but whilst we’re usually dismissive of such a style, it really works on this occasion.
The wild symbol pays the most, but it only 500x, whilst the second highest paying symbol only returns 400x and the third only 300x. This is far from the biggest we have seen and in reality we would expect the highest paying symbol to be 1,000x at the very least.
As far as the gameplay goes, the RTP is decent and feels even better as you play, with the wins coming frequently. Big wins are quite rare, as you would expect from such low paying symbols, but the bonus rounds go some way to making up for that.
There are a few small bonus rounds and features. One of these is an instant win, which gives a prompt payout, usually no more than 10x. There is also a wild feature and something known as an Inferno Bonus. In this feature the symbols on the reels burst into flames and you need to click on them to reveal and win cash prizes. You can keep clicking until you reveal the “Collect” symbol, at which point the feature ends and any money you have accumulated until that point is paid out.
As you may have guessed, all of these features play out directly on the reels. We don’t have an issue with that as it works fine, but we would have liked to see a little more. Firemen could have used an extra bonus round and/or a free spins round. They are standard on many modern slots and not without reason, because many gamblers love them. Therefore, an absence of such a round is really noticeable here.

Firemen can be a little cheesy. The image of the fireman in this slot is not of a brave, dusty and dirty man fighting the flames, but of a hunk with his chest out. It is the stereotypical fireman, as seen by lonely housewives in cheap sitcoms. However, they don’t go over the top with that and on the whole this slot is very interesting. It does have some crucial omissions, as mentioned above, but we enjoyed playing it, we won some money and we’re happy to score this Playtech slot a 7 out of 10.
