Flamin’ Elle, I love a pun, so hats off to Core Gaming for this game! I’m a wombat who loves a a grill over some charcoal so a slot with a name like that caught my attention. Let’s get to it! Did someone say smoked ribs? I’ll just get my marinades from the fridge.
Look and Feel
But hang on, Wombat People. The game’s Elle is the giveaway. This leading lady is our long-lashed host who is in fact a dragon. She doesn’t look much like she’s into the claws and flame act though.
The slot has an evening vibe (a bit like the Butterfly Staxx 2 slot) with a purple sky visible through the mouth of a cave: Elle’s pad, I presume. Below the transparent reels lies the sleeping form of the dragon Elle. But of course, this dragon isn’t a feathers and pillows gal, she prefers sleeping on a sea of coins and gems. Let’s hope she’s no too protective and is happy to give some of them away.
Let’s get down to this dragon story with 6 reels, 4 rows and a meaty 40 pay-lines. Flame grilled, of course and that’s me having just played the Thone of Gold slot machine which also has a fire breather in it.
You’ll need to keep a sharp eye out for the game’s logo, in gold and green-scaled letters, as this is the highest value icon. Another view of Elle the dragon with a big grin on her face is the next highest symbol, followed by a golden crown. And while we’re looking for the hot stuff, you’ll notice the bottle labelled “Fuel”! Wow, no wonder dragons are usually cranky and warm around the mouth!
A bright and breezy Ace through 10 of the card deck make up the lower value icons of this game.
The slot’s Wild is a fiery icon with the word “Wild” written across it. And the Bonus Scatter is a glowing blue dragon egg sitting on a pile of coins with the word “Bonus.” Oh, I do love it when game designers make it easy for me.
Base Game Wilds
Prepare for some smoking hot surprises with the randomly triggered base game Wild feature. You’ll need to keep your wits and a fire blanket handy as Elle will wake up and starts blowing fire onto the reels. Rather than destruction, this big lizard’s hot breath delivers a generous trail of up to 10 Wilds. It was Chicken Vindaloo for Elle last night and she’s packing a heart of gold under those scales!
Land 3 or more egg Scatters to unlock the free spins feature with 7 free games to kick off the action. There are more than just free spins on offer depending on how many Scatters you activated this feature with.
3 Scatters will set you on a winning streak with 7 free games but more Scatters mean bigger multipliers when you spin the reels. 4,5 or 6 Scatters will gift you a shiny x5, x20 or even a cork-popping x50 multipliers for the duration of those free games. Hot!
Once you know how big your winning stakes could be you will have a quick crack at an egg-themed picking game. Choose between a selection of eggs to reveal which of 4 bonus games will be in play during those spins.
Will you Blaze Up or get your mitts on the Flamin’ Riches feature? These two bonus games are similar: they are all about Elle’s blowing those flames and Wilds onto those reels again. She’d be a handy mate to have around as a firelighter at one of my rib roasts.
Each of your games comes with flames and possible extras. With her first flame, Elle can give you a decent 4 Wilds on the reels. If you don’t luck in her next breath will give you up to 6 Wilds. And with each spin that fails to hit home, Elle will give you an extra potential Wild to land and these grow until you secure a win. Each free spin can award extra Wilds thanks to our dragon pal but they don’t keep growing if you’re gaining wins.
The “Heat is On” feature sees Elle going one better and awarding pairs instead of single Wilds when she has a fiery moment with the reels. This can give you a lucrative 6 Wilds on the reel on each of those spins. Kerching!
“Hot or Not” has Elle as a mistress of fire and smoke. In this side game she will blow Wilds onto the reels – or simply decide not to play ball. It depends on her mood.
The Flamin’ Elle slot is a hot piece of stuff from Core Gaming that offers a neat duo of bonus games. I love a base game stuffed with extra Wilds and the free spins game with four side games is a perfect main course.
Wombat Score 4 out of 5
This game is Flamin’ Good! It’s a clever twist on other dragon games with plenty of extras to try and boost the bank balance.
