Developers of Quickspin company often produce simple slots, which are endowed with a minimum number of bonuses but are capable of bringing good rewards. Firestorm slot is a bright representative of software from the leading developer. Two wild symbols, one of which launches the bonus, are the only additional options. The highest-paid symbol combination will replenish the account for 2000 coins. You should remember that the percentage of returns is quite high (96.56%), so the risks of losing are minimal.

Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Firestorm slot, even with its game play that has a very good potential for winning, is not doing very well and in general is not reaching its potential, giving winnings several times less than the winnings the developers said it would be. So, even with the maximum possible win of 2500x bets (full-screen wild x5), its real potential is not more than 250x, and, I will go forward and say that the maximum win that could be won in this machine was only a little more than 90x total bets.
- In the usual spins, Firestorm is making small series of "empty" spins with winnings from less than the normal bet size to only 3x-4x bets, rarely giving combinations with prizes up to 10x-15x total bets, and the maximum gain in the usual spins (without the bonus feature) was only 30x.
- One of the good sides from this slot is that the bonus features are triggered often, when having good luck, once in a few dozen spins, but sometimes the slot is making you wait longer in a series of spins with no bonus feature triggered. The bonus feature is triggered when two bonus symbols are shown, which is also playing the role of wild symbol. When the bonus feature is triggered, in addition to the bonus symbol and wild symbol, the slot randomly selects another symbol that is blocked for the duration of all re spin. Re-spin continues until one of the selected symbols is shown on the reels.
Collecting bonus symbols increases the multiplier, the maximum value of which is x5. Even with the good potential for a large win, because of the low prices for the payment combinations made by the provider, most of the time winnings in the bonus feature is 10x-35x bets, less often – they are close to 100x (it was possible to get once), and the maximum gain recorded by the developer in Firestorm was 500+ total bet. In my opinion, the slot is not releasing its potential, because of its low prices for combinations, so it is not recommended for long gaming sessions while playing for real money. When you are playing with bonus money, this slot machine is not recommended also, because it is bad at keeping your balance.
