When playing this game for the first time I wondered why the reels were "thudding" into position whenever I got a stack of the same symbol on the first reel. Turns out they have borrowed some ideas from Yggdrasil and a multiplier is applied to all wins that feature 9, 12 or 15 of the same symbol (starting from the left, like usual). Nine oranges at minimum bet for example pays 0.05 on each of the five paylines, tripled for a total of 0.75. Not too exciting, but fifteen lucky "7"s... wow, those pay 50.00 for a line of five which is already 1000x your stake... five paylines gives you 5000x and add the 5x multiplier... wow! I take it back, perhaps this could be one of GameArt's strongest games afterall!
I haven't seen a game capable of paying £1,250 on a 5p bet for a while that's for sure, it's just a shame it's not very exciting. You have to assume that the chances of this happening are of course ridiculously slim and the vast majority of the higher paying symbols such as the bells and 7's appear mainly as single symbols on the reels rather than as stacks, but there is at least one stack of each somewhere on the presumably extremely long reel strips. I played the game for around half an hour today and didn't manage a full screen of any symbol even once, so I guess I'll be waiting a while to get my screen of "7"s, but I do intend to try next time I'm playing with a very small bankroll.
I found the sound quite annoying very quickly, unless you like to hear the beeps of the funfair over and over you will probably want to switch it off. And that's about all there is to Storming Flame! Fun game, big payout potential, but nothing in the way of features to speak of.
