God of Fire slot REVIEW
God of Fire ReviewMicrogaming partner, Northern Lights, has decided to pick a fight with BTG’s well-established and popular Megaways engine, and God of Fire is the first release where their homegrown UltraWays engine is on full display. They tested the waters with last year’s Golden Stallion, but you’ll now benefit from up to 60 million win ways in all stages of the game.
Each position can contain up to 4 matching symbols, but you win only 1.1x your stake from 10 top-tier symbols on a payline. Compared to, say, Quickspin’s Hammer of Vulcan, the fire god theme looks a bit primitive and dated, but it gets the job done. The highly dynamic UltraWays engine is surprisingly refreshing, and it would be nice to see a release that’s visually up to speed as well.

God of Fire Slot Features
The regular wild steps in for all pay symbols, and it’s also worth more or less the same as the top premium symbol. Land 9 on a payline, and you’ll pocket 1x your stake. Landing a Blue Wild triggers the Exploding Wild feature, and you’ll see the blue wild clone itself into single, double or quad wilds placed randomly on the grid. It can also turn into another blue wild, repeating the exploding process until only non-blue wilds are left on the screen.
The treasure chest wreath symbol is the bonus scatter, and you need at least 3 anywhere in sight to trigger the Bonus Round. You win 3, 4 or 5 free spin lives when you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters, respectively. You can get extra lives via heart symbols on reel 5, while skull symbols remove 1 life every time they land.
The free spins go on indefinitely, until you run out of lives, and 1 of 3 modifiers may trigger randomly on any spin:
Exploding Wilds - a Blue Wild replaces a randomly chosen symbol on the grid.
UltraWays Upgrade - awards an UltraWays upgrade to 1 symbol type, which increases the number of win ways.
Multiplier - awards a x2, x3, x5 or x10 boost to any winnings from the current spin.
Whenever only 2 scatters land, they are collected in the Super Free Spins meter. You need 60 ‘near misses’ to trigger the Super Bonus Round, and you get 3, 4 or 5 lives randomly assigned as the feature starts. You are now guaranteed a modifier trigger on each spin, and the multiplier range has been doubled to x4, x6, x10 or x20.
The 200 Spins God of Fire Slot Experience
You get to see the Exploding Wild feature a couple of times in the base game, and we land some okay payouts here and there in the first 3 minutes of the 5-minute highlights video. We then trigger the Bonus Round with 3 scatters, and you can see how we fared by hitting the play button below.
Northern Lights’ UltraWays concept comes more to its right in God of Fire than in the engine's debut release, Golden Stallion. With more than 60 million win ways possible at any given spin, it’s safe to say that the Megaways engine has got some competition. The visual presentation and choice of theme could perhaps have been more original and less dated, not least if the Microgaming partner has ambitions of seriously rivaling the popular BTG engine.
It’s certainly a sight to behold when quad wilds are bombarding the grid during Blue Wild Explosions, and the unpredictability keeps the tension high at all times. Indefinite free spins is also fun, and we like how collecting near-miss scatters eventually leads to an even better bonus round. The 18,000x potential suits the massive number of win ways, but keep in mind that the symbol values are very low to compensate.
