How to play Fire & Steel: War of Wilds
Before players begin to battle this epic game, they should adjust their settings to suit their style:
- Clicking on “Coin Value” will set players coins size ranges
- “Bet per Line” will help players determine the number of lines they wish to bet.
- Pressing the “Spin” button will begin spinning the reels.
- Hitting the “Bet Max” button will set the maximum bet for that spin and is great for novice players.
- Players can use the “Auto Play” option if they are fed up with spinning the reels manually.
- The “Double Up” button will launch the gamble feature.
Within Fire and Steel, only reels one and three have three positions, reels two and four have four, and the middle reel has five. In a play, there are twenty pay lines, where players are able to win from both directions.
The gemstones displayed offer small awards, with the higher-value symbols being swords, books, helmets, goblets, a crown and shields. It is the latter two symbols that pay the biggest rewards.
Special features of Fire and Steel
Fire & Steel is packed with special features, all that is tied to the three wild symbols that can be found landing on the reels. Along with a standard wild that can substitute other symbols to make winning pay combinations, players will also want to look out for two principal characters: the swordsman and the shieldmaiden.
The Swordsman releases a magical vertical beam above or below him. Once this happens, the beam turns all symbols in its path to wilds.
Alternatively, the Shield Maiden releases a magical horizontal beam either to her left or right. Her beam will also turn everything in its path to wilds.
War of Wilds feature
However, if both the beams of the Swordsman and the Shield Maiden cross, players are awarded ten free spins plus the symbols that the two beams cross will remain in place as a wild during the free spins feature. Players get ten additional spins if the function is retriggered, PLUS a sticky wild.
Each time players land a win during the primary game they can choose to gamble the win by clicking on “Double Up”. Players must guess correctly on a single toss of a coin and can gamble either all or half their winnings. Guessing correctly will double their stake, guess incorrectly and the victories players have risked will be lost.
Fire and Steel is an excellent audio and visual game that will appeal to fans of Game of Thrones. The War of Wilds features are brilliant, adding variety and entertainment to players’ spins.
Although it lacks a few features compared to other Betsoft games, if players are into dragons, epic battles, and mythical fantasy, then they are likely to enjoy this game whether they are savvy gamers or not.
