Now it’s time for another exciting pokie from Microgaming. As soon as you start Fire’n’Dice the first thing that catches your attention perhaps is the female devil holding a set of dice, seen on the right hand side of the pokie. Also, you will notice that this is a three reel pokie with a single activated payline in the middle. As such, some of you might already be thinking that this is yet another classical pokie that won’t do for them. However, we recommend you keep on reading, and also try a few spins over here before giving any judgement. You might be in for some pleasant surprises.
So, as we said Fire’n’Dice is a three reel pokie, and your target is to aline three identical symbols on the middle line. The symbols are not a lot, but just cherries, a bar symbol with one row, and a seven symbol. In order to help you get the same symbols on the middle reel you have a number of features. These are the Nudges, Hold, Let’em Spin and Shifta! features. Most of you already know what these functions do, but still we shall give a brief overview of these, for all those that have never played using these functions before.
The Nudges is very interesting, and might be very useful. As the name implies, whenever this function is randomly activated, you will be able to push the reels some steps forward. You can get up to four nudges at one go, and if you don’t use all of them, sometimes you’ll also be able to hold them. You can decide whether to use the nudges or not by clicking on the sneak peek arrows at the top of the reels to see which symbols are next in line. Another interesting thing about the Nudges is that you can gamble the amount of nudges won, and sometimes you’ll also be awarded the same amount of nudges when you use all those given to you. This happens when the Nudge Repeat light flashes.
The Hold feature, that often is activated after the nudges, will allow you to hold some of the reels while the other ones spin. By doing so, if you have two matching symbols, you can hold them and let the other reel to spin hoping that the same symbol will appear. The Shifta! feature is another random feature, and when these words start to flash on top of the reels, the latter will spin in a winning combination. Something similar is the Let’em Spin function that if two same symbols appear on the middle line and you have used all your nudges, the remaining reel will spin into a winning combination.
Now, let’s proceed to the exciting feature of Fire’n’Dice. Whenever a winning combo is obtained during the regular game, you will win dice spins. The latter are the same as free spins. So if you get a trio of cherries you’ll win five dice spins, a trio of bars leads to fifteen dice spins, whereas three sevens on the middle line will grant you with fifty dice spins!
The Dice Spins game appears above the regular pokie reels, and consists of three reels and five paylines that are permanently activated. The symbols used are dice, hence the name Fire’n’Dice. The dice symbols spin and will stop to form various combinations. Whenever you get a winning combination on a payline, the bet amount will be multiplied by the multiplier value won. The bet level can be adjusted between one of eight different values, so that everyone can find a level that matches his or her budget. Anyway, Fire’n’Dice is quite a different pokie from the rest. Although it is simply a three reel pokie with just one active payline, it provides a pleasant novelty. All those of you who would like to try something different, should definitely give it a shot.
