Fire Pearl

This beautifully crafted Asian-themed video slot features 50 or 100 paylines on a five-by-five grid—five physical stops on each of five reels.

The high-volatility base game features numerous “lucky symbols,” and the game features an engaging free-spin bonus in which the player chooses the volatility. When bonus symbols trigger the free game bonus through five spiral bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, the player chooses Free Games Bonus, and are able to customize the gaming experience by choosing from high numbers of free games with low volatility and lower numbers of spins with high volatility.

Controlling the volatility in both the base game and the free-game round are “Roaming Multiplier Wilds,” which apply a random multiplier to any winning combination formed with the wild symbol.

The game is designed top-to-bottom to appeal to Asian-style play, from the high volatility of the base game to the reel symbols. Players also are able to select their preferred language, picking between English and Chinese with the push of a button.

Fire Pearl is compatible with a variety of IGT cabinets.
