Fire Bird is a mid-2012 Wazdan-owned classic video slot adaptation of the phoenix, a folkloric regenerating bird that the Greek mythology associates with immortality. Ancient Greeks thought of the phoenix as an animal symbolism that signifies the sun, wherein the bird was cremated before reemerging anew from the ashes of its former self.
Fire Bird is one of the five phoenix-themed video slots from Wazdan. The others are Fenix Play (June 2012), Fenix Play 27 (June 2012), Fenix Play Deluxe (September 2017), and Fenix Play 27 Deluxe (September 2017). Fire Bird’s rival game include Phoenix Fire Power Reels (June 2019), The Red Phoenix (May 2016) from August Gaming, and Super Red Phoenix (April 2017) from SG. Fire Bird’s symbols require three winning combinations.
Fire Bird Game Characteristics
Fire Bird has a 3X3 grid whose gold-framed white reels are fastened together with crisscrossing green, orange, yellow, blue and purple pathways of the five fixed paylines. There are nine symbols, nine total bets, side game, neither free games nor substituting wilds, and pays from $0.80 to $4000.00.
Fire Bird has one special and eight ordinary symbols. Special symbol: the bonus-unlocking feature is a boxed fiery phoenix. Ordinary symbols: yellow-and-red “7’; halved watermelon; purple grapes; golden bell; plum; lemon; orange; and cherries.
Fire Bird’s total bets: $0.10 (minimum), $0.20, $0.50, $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00 (maximum).
These Fire Bird’s self-adjusting payouts for winning combinations are based on the $100.00 bet. Phoenix pays $4000.00. “7”, or watermelon, or grapes, or golden bell pays $1600.00. Plum, or lemon, or cherries, or orange pays $800.00.
Every winning combination prompts two white icons— “X2” stacked coins (for proceeding to the side game) and a “$” hand (for claiming the payout)—to pop up below the middle reel. The default gamble game (an unticked “cards gambling only” icon) is all about predicting the colors of flickering black and red playing card suits—the flickering stops after players have pressed the neighboring the red or black circles. There is an alternative side game (a ticked “cards gambling only” icon in the settings) with a face down playing card that also requires predicting a black or red color. The gambled current win is nullified or doubled accordingly. The non-progressive jackpot of Fire Bird is X72, which (72X100) amounts to $7200.00.
These are the good Fire Bird software features, notably: standardized volatility level; big screen mode; supports desktop and different mobile devices; supports the major operating systems; available in 13 languages; left-hand and right-hand modes; and slow, moderate, and fast speed modes. There are between 5 and 1000 autospins whose mobile version has $1000.00 maximum—and desktop version has $1000000.00 maximum—preset win and cash decrease/increase limits.
There are classic slot machine sounds. The animated 3D graphics include: dolly zoom, flickering winning paylines, ascending tongues of fire in the background, spinning radial turbine, and, during big win presentations, a spinning starry retro sunburst.
