Join the Flaming Fox in his dojo and learn to master the flames yourself. This slot combines great visuals, strong gameplay, and high volatility with an RTP of 96.11% into one top notch package.
Flaming Fox has a decidedly Kung Fu Panda kind of vibe. The main character, the titular Flaming Fox, is a 3D digimation animal with some mystical martial arts training and the ability to levitate as he meditates.
The background is a combat dojo where the Flaming Fox clearly trains. The symbols flesh out the world further. There are ninja masks, footwear, weapons and scrolls, which all hint at a deeper mythology.
The result is a game that feels like it has a full story behind it, even if all it really has is one character and a setting.
The graphics on Flaming Fox are outstanding. Not only are all the elements beautifully designed, but they are brought to life with excellent animations that are detailed in all the right ways but never too busy or dragged out.
These visual elements are paired with a strong soundtrack. The music has the feel of late-90s kung fu epics and the spin and win sounds have been designed to work with the music as well as with the animations to create a fully integrated soundscape.
This slot is a model of stylish and practical slot design.
Flaming Fox is a five reel slot with three rows and ten win lines. So far, so typical, but it does have a few extra tricks up its kimono sleeve.
This slot is also, like its titular character, a flexible ninja, with those ten win lines paying in both directions. The winning sequence must start in either reel one or reel five.
There is also a randomly triggered feature called the Flaming Fox Feature in the base game that results in a series of reels that are all identical high-value symbols and sometimes in an additional feature adding some locked wilds to the reels too.
There is also a Free Spin bonus (details below) and a turbo setting for those who would rather a faster spin on their reels.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol.
Three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Free Spin bonus. This starts with a random number of spins, with the range of the randomisation being higher the more Scatter symbols you hit.
During the free spins, there is an extra-spin symbol which awards an additional spin if it lands on the reels. If the Flaming Fox Feature is triggered, all the symbols it produces remain locked in place for the remaining Free Spins.
The return to player of this game is 96.11%, a little over our yardstick for average of roughly 96%.
