The Fire Opals slot game is made by IGT - the company behind WagerWorks casinos. IGT publish the house edge of their slots games with the paytable, however if the game has a range of possible settings, this figure is usually only given only as a range. Check with the casino you are playing at to find out if they give the exact value or range of possible values. The house edge of Fire Opals is between 5.08% and 7.01%. Unless you are playing at a casino that explicitly states the house edge they are using it would be wise to assume you are playing against a 7.01% edge.
Rare and precious, are you brave enough to challenge the volcano to claim a share of the fire opals?
This game is a 5 reel game, however the reels do not take on a standard form. Each reel has a different number of symbols with reel one and five having 3 symbols, two and four having 4 symbols and reel five having 5 symbols. Alongside this, Fire Opals does not use standard paylines. Instead any matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from either the left or the right constitute a win. This equates to 720 standard paylines.
The ‘Wild’ symbol is wild, appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and is stacked.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Fire Opals and it is activated when you receive one of the ‘Fire Opal' symbol on each of the five reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 complimentary spins.
The unusual reel layout certainly make this game fun, however Siberian Storm offers exactly the same layout and features and a lower minimum house edge, so if you're going to playing a Virgin Casino - which uses the lowest possible house edge - Siberian Storm in probably the better choice.
