This next release is the perfect example of old school and modern style combined. Provided for us by Playtech, Blazing Bells looks like a classic game but it also provides us with some amazing new features. Players will get to play on a 6x6 grid that offers a remarkable 46,656 winning ways. With those numbers and the promising payouts, the game is set for success.
The main focus of the provider was the features that are executed to perfection. On the other hand, they used the all-time classic fruit theme in the design of the game. Even though you have seen it before, you definitely have not seen it in this edition. The simple theme makes the player pay attention to the features playing out and the wins rolling in.
The background of the game consists of some warm colors which are quite neutral compared to the purple reels. The scene is actually quite calming and so is the soundtrack. It consists of some very relaxing piano music which is just the opposite of what you are getting, considering everything else going on providing a very exciting experience.
The symbols have quite an interesting design considering the fruit theme is used. The lower paying symbols are represented by the regular card royals. Then there are lemons, oranges, grapes, raspberries, and bells. The game also has a wild symbol that appears as a diamond and a bonus symbol that takes the shape of a gold star.
This is a high volatility game which means that anything can be expected and things can turn around in minutes. The payouts are frequent throughout the game and go up to a remarkable 25,000 times the stake. The betting range is also pretty standard, with the minimum bet set at 0,10 and the maximum at 90 coins per spin. The game also offers us a reasonable 96,37% RTP.
The best part has finally come, the features that are amazing, to say the least. They are simple but still provide amazing entertainment and not to mention great payouts. First to mention is, as usual, the wild symbol that does its regular job of replacing all other symbols, aside from the bonus symbol.
Then we have the most obvious one, which is the Cascading Reels feature. It is triggered after every winning combination, removing the winning symbols from the grid, allowing the other to cascade down in hopes of creating another winning combination.
This brings us straight to the Win Multiplier feature that has the multiplier increases by one every time a cascading win has happened. The great thing is that there are no limits, so if you are lucky enough, you could walk out with some full pockets.
The game also offers the Ways Plus feature that can be activated randomly during the game marking a certain symbol. All symbols, except for the wild and the bonus symbol can be marked. Once there, it can expand to 4 adjacent positions to hopefully create some amazing wins.
Last but not least, the game offers us a Free Games Feature that is triggered once the player lands 3, 4, 5, or 6 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. They are then awarded with 6, 8, 12, or 20 free spins. Multipliers are present during the feature as well. In fact, the multiplier that was applied to the triggering win is carried through and becomes the starting multiplier. They are also still able to increase without limits which can only mean good things.
Aside from the design which some players might find a bit boring, there is no way this game will not impress. The design also shows simplicity which might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But the modern features and the payouts they provide will surely be able to win anyone over. The game is definitely worth trying out.
