How to play the Firestarter slot for free

When starting the trial version of the Firestarter slot, you get 500 credits in your game account. This in-game currency enables you to configure bets and spin the reels for free. The goal of the game is to increase the amount of credits in your balance by earning rewards for combinations. Winning combos are patterns of identical pictures that land on one payline, on neighbouring reels, from the first to the fifth reel.

To collect a combination, you need to start a spin. To specify the conditions under which the spin will run, configure the game parameters on the control panel. The panel is found at the bottom of the screen below the reels and contains the following elements:

  • Lines — displays the number of active paylines. In the Firestarter slot, their number is fixed at 25
  • Bet/Line sets the bet per line. The parameter varies between 0.02 and 4 credits. The value in the specified range is changed with the + and - buttons
  • Bet — displays the bet per spin (the cost of one spin). The number in this window varies depending on the configured bet per line and is a multiple of 25
  • Start — makes one spin
  • Autoplay — launches a series of autospins. Clicking again turns off the autospins
  • Last Win — shows the reward for the combinations landing as a result of one spin
  • Credit — displays the amount in your account
  • Paytable — opens a table of payouts and descriptions of game bonuses
  • Gamble — opens a window with a risk game. The button becomes active only when a winning combination has landed in the game window

When playing the game in the automatic mode (the Autoplay feature is activated), you cannot run a risk game once a winning combination is formed. The double-up option is only available when the spins are started manually.

Pictures and rewards of the slot

The rewards for the formation of winning combos are listed in the table of payouts. For your convenience, all wins are indicated in credits. When the bet is changed, the winnings are recalculated on the basis of fixed multipliers and displayed in the table as an amount relevant for the current game conditions.

Winning combos are formed of:

  • Cherries that award the multiplier of 5, 20 and 80 for three, four and five pictures in a row, respectively. The reward expressed in credits depends on the bet. With the minimum bet, the reward will be 0.1, 0.4 and 1.6 credits, with the maximum — 20, 80 and 320
  • Lemons and oranges with the multiplier of 5, 30 and 100 for the bet per line
  • Watermelons — 10, 50 and 150
  • He-devil and she-devil — 40, 100 and 500
  • Sevens — 100, 500 and 5,000

Among the described pictures, he-devil and she-devil follow special rules acting as Scatter symbols. Combinations of these pictures are counted regardless of paylines and reels. It is important that at least three identical pictures should come up in the game window in any boxes. In this case, the reward will be credited to your account.

In addition to regular pictures, two symbols with additional functions are involved in the main game. The Wild symbol is an image with the silhouette of she-devil and the word Wild. This picture has no value of its own and does not form its own combinations. Its function is to replace the missing picture in a combination of regular symbols. The joker feature does not apply to Scatter symbols.

Another Scatter in the game is a box of matches. The combination of these pictures does not pay in credits, but activates a bonus of the slot — a series of 10 free spins.

Features of the main game

During the ordinary spins, you get an extra advantage which raises your chances of forming winning combinations. The Reel Refill feature is activated if at least one combination appears on the screen. The symbols involved in the combination blow up to clear the boxes. Pictures found above the empty box fall down and several new pictures come up in the game screen in the top row. This way, additional combinations can be formed.

Free spins

When three Scatters with the image of matches land on the screen, the bonus spins start. You earn 10 free spins, during which the game is played with the bet per line configured for the main game. The bet per spin is not deducted while the spin is activated. In the bonus rounds, a modified set of symbols is used. So, the BAR symbol that shows a bomb with a wick comes up on the screen instead of the Wild.

The payouts for combinations of fruit symbols and ordinary Scatters are based on multipliers different from those used in the main game:

  • Cherries — 5, 20 and 80
  • Lemons or oranges — 5, 30 and 100
  • Watermelon — 10, 50 and 150
  • Bombs — 50, 250 and 1,000
  • He-devil and she-devil — 75, 250 and 1,250
  • Sevens — 100, 500 and 5,000

The prize depends on the valid bet per line. With the bet per line of 0.02 credits, the payout for the highest-paying combination (five sevens) will be 100 credits, and with the bet of 4 credits — 20,000.

A series of free spins can be continued when at least three symbols with matches land. The number of extra spins depends on the number of bonus Scatters. Three, four and five symbols earn you 5, 10 and 15 extra spins, respectively.

Double Up

When at least one winning combination has lined up on the screen, the Gamble button on the control panel becomes active. A click on this button opens an additional window with the double-or-nothing game. Developers do not specify the limits of the amount available for this game, so you can double any reward won during the spin.

A face-down playing card comes up in the centre of the additional window. You should guess the colour of the card. What you bet on one round of the risk game is your reward for the previous winning combinations. The correct answer (red or black) will double your amount at stake. The wrong guess will burn the credits you have gambled.

The number of rounds in the risk game is not limited. However, with each new round, the probability of guessing the colour of the suit goes down. If you have doubled the reward several times in a row and want to risk no further, the reward is added to your balance by clicking the Collect button.


The Firestarter slot by Greentube offers low wins that are awarded during the main game. Depending on your preferences, you can increase your rewards in the risk game or try to catch a combination of bonus Scatter symbols and launch a series of free spins. In the first case, it is best to launch spins manually because the doubling game cannot be activated during autospins. In the second case, to speed up catching the desired combination, you should use the Autoplay function.
