Red Tiger has been picking up momentum as of late with several exciting releases. What used to be a provider churning out predictable and somewhat generic games has now turned into a developer full of surprises. One can still recognize many of the elements typical for Red Tiger, but what’s interesting is the fact that the potential has been bumped up quite dramatically an apparent attempt to meet the demand, which means Red Tiger is undoubtedly listening to the community of slot players.
Flaming Fox is a 5-reel, 3-row online slot with 20 paylines playable on all devices from €0.20 to €20. The game pays both ways, includes a free spins game and centers around the random Flaming Fox feature. The 96.11% RTP is well within the acceptable range, and regarding variance, it’s somewhere in the upper medium part of the scale.
Flaming Fox Symbols & Paytable
Looking at the paytable, we find five low-value symbols represented by the standard card suit letters designed in a Japanese type font. The five premium symbols are represented by sparring shoes, Japanese cat masks, headbands, scrolls and katana swords with the latter being the most lucrative giving you 20 times the stake for five across a payline.
As expected, the wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter and is the single most valuable symbol, giving you 50x for 5 of a kind. A full screen of wilds, which is possible with the help of the Flaming Fox feature, would give you 1000 times the stake.
As with many Red Tiger games, this slot also comes with a randomly triggered feature called the Flaming feature. When activated, Mr Karate Fox appears and will karate kick either single symbols or full reels to reveal a second, flaming reel set hiding in the dimension under the regular set.
The flaming reels contain only full rows of premium symbols or wild symbols that will spin in synchronization to increase the chance of mega wins. Foxy can even karate kick individual symbols a second time, transforming them into locked wilds.
Flaming Fox Free Spins
Three or more scatter symbols trigger a random number of free spins with more free spins being awarded the more scatter symbols you manage to land. Should the Extra Spin symbol appear in the flaming reel set, additional free spins will be granted.
The Flaming feature is at the center of attention here and works more or less like it does when it appears randomly in the main game, but with one additional benefit – the flaming reel set activated will remain locked for the entire free spins session. In other words, should Mr Foxy appear on your first spin and kick to reveal a wild line, it will remain in place until the end of the feature. A full screen of wilds is worth 1000x, but since the game is capped, the maximum exposure is limited to 3333x.
Flaming Fox Conclusion
Production wise it’s an outstanding game. The gameplay is smooth, the graphics unique, primarily when the Flaming feature is activated, and quick spinning work as it should, although the big win counts up could have been sped up a bit (which you can thankfully skip). The heart and soul of the game is the Flaming feature which appears now and then (be warned as it can troll you as well), adding an element of excitement to the main game.
Flaming Fox is not the most potent game out there, and the payouts are relatively small, although still higher than the standard Red Tiger slot. It’s definitely worth giving a shot, and the Flaming feature should be experienced first hand because of its unique appearance and functionality.
