Firehouse Hounds Slot
It hasn’t been all that long since we added Hound Hotel by Microgaming to the selection here at PlayLogicGames.com and IGT has followed quickly with another anthropomorphic canine slot, with the key characters this time taking on the role of firemen. The cartoonish graphics are particularly well done, especially when you take a look at the two Firehouse Hounds standing in front of the reels, ready and willing to douse wild fires as they happen – but more on those later. The action takes place across thirty win lines and fire reels, and every symbol fits in with the theme, apart from the golden wild card. Fortunately, the sheer usefulness of the wild card means that we can give it a pass in this respect!
One feature of the game that you’re sure to encounter rather early on is that while there are technically thirty lines, prize combinations will be awarded when you complete a relevant win starting either from the left of the board or the right.
Wild Fires in the Base Game
Those two aforementioned Firehouse Hounds are on hand for whenever the base game’s random feature is triggered. It lives up to its name as reels one or five, or both at the same time, can burst into flames and becomes completely wild for the next spin. In all fairness, we’d prefer it if the Hounds left that one alone for a few spins, but oh well, safety first!
Wild Fires in the Bonus Round
The fire bell is this game’s scatter symbol and it only lands on reels two, three and four. You’ll need to hit one on all three in order to trigger the feature and you’ll then be presented with a screen of fire poles. Your choice determines whether you’ll receive four, five or six bonus games and while that doesn’t sound like all that many, you’ll be pleased to know that both reels one and five remain completely inflamed and therefore wild for the whole round. You can also pick up more bonus spins from within the round itself.
Firehouse Hounds is unlikely to achieve true legendary status like some of IGT’s other video slots like Siberian Storm and Cleopatra, but if you’re looking for something fresh and unique, complete with a theme that has seen plenty of thought go into it, this game is well worth checking out.
