While Konami’s “Advantage” series of reel-spinning slots has been on a tear of late, this game will remind operators of the manufacturer’s core strength in the video genre.
The game’s Aztec temple theme is available in several configurations, including 20-line, 25-line and 30-line setups. It also is available in denominations ranging from pennies all the way through $5 denominations.
Volatility is in the medium range, with a hit frequency of around 40 percent.
The main opportunity for big wins comes in the free-spin bonus, which is this game’s main feature.
Three, four or five scattered temple symbols trigger 15, 20 or 25 free spins, respectively.
During the free spins, the “bird” symbol-a phoenix rising from the flames-is wild, and multiplies the jackpots. If one or more of the bird symbols substitute in a winning combination on a free spin, the jackpot is multiplied by either five, 10 or 20. The free-spin round can be re-triggered within the free spins, which can add much time on device and good credit wins without the high volatility of most games designed exclusively for pennies.
Striking, high-resolution video graphics complete the package of what is a very strong offering from Konami.
Because it is a K2V game, Rising Fire supports all of Konami’s mystery jackpot systems and other extras, like “Quick Strike,” “Diamond Point” and all of the progressive options.
Konami has been on a roll lately, and the company’s success can ultimately be traced to very strong program math. While its success has been strongest in the reel-spinning genre for the past few years, this game will reassert the company’s knack for successful video slots.
