Firehawk is a solid game from the team at NextGen that’s perfect for those who are into themes relating to Native American Indians. It’s also a good one for those who prefer that more or less ‘classic’ set of gameplay features (gamble bonus, free spins, wild icon). It definitely will not wow you with its gameplay, but if you’re into these other things then you will like this one, too.
Like many slot games, Firehawk performs far better in one category than in the other. In this case, the former refers to the gameplay while the latter refers to the presentation.
Let’s start with the good part – the gameplay. First off, there is a gamble feature on hand, which is always nice to see. Next up, there is the free spins. Have at least three scatters come up to be able to choose between 10 free spins with a 4x multiplier, 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier, or 20 free spins a 2x multiplier. If that’s not enough, there is also a regular wild symbol available as well. He replaces all non-scatters and serves as an 8x multiplier if you have him appear on both the second and fourth reels while making part of a winning combination.
There is, however, a worse part to the gaming experience here: the presentation. Put simply, every element of it could stand to be improved. The graphics are lackluster; the effects nowhere to be found; the music only comes on as the reels are spinning. Perhaps the somewhat saving grace here is that the theme is actually executed rather well.
How to play Firehawk
There’s really not much to playing Firehawk, actually. Select the number of paylines you wish to activate and the coin denomination you will use before pushing the “spin” button to get things moving on their merry way. Click on the “gamble” button if you wish to enter that feature following a winning spin.
