Free Play Fire 88 Slots - No Spam - No Pop-up Ads
Chinese themed slots have always been popular. They’ve had their followers even before China opened its doors for online gambling. And after this massive new market opened, not a month goes by that one software provider doesn’t launch a Chinese themed game! Our gripe with many of these releases is that they all look exactly the same. Not to mention they’re usually re-skins of existing slots. Fire 88 has none of those issues! Built from the ground up as a unique game, it promises great fun condensed into only three reels and seven paylines!
There’s something incredibly satisfying about this release’s graphics. We think it’s the background. The flames flicker back and forth, creating a gorgeous view! And yet, most of the time, you won’t even notice it, due to focusing on the reels! Sadly, the symbols themselves aren’t nearly as impressive! They consist of firecrackers, Chinese coins, flaming diamonds, the number 88 lit on fire and a dragon’s head. It’s a great mix of traditional China with icons Western players are more familiar with.
You play Fire 88 on a 3x3 board with 7 fixed paylines, which pay left to right only. In terms of special features, there’s not much to talk about here. The less spacious playing field leaves less room for having more bonuses, unfortunately. On the upside, that does mean the special features which are there are that much more lucrative! Find two dragon head Wilds, and you get a free re-spin of the reel which is missing a Wild. The number 88 also has a chance of appearing with a jackpot badge beneath it. And when three of them appear at the same time, then you’ve triggered the jackpot bonus!
Few developers can have a functional interface and be able to boast about putting their logo on the screen! And while that’s undeniably cool, what’s even better is the way you set your total bet. If you so choose, you can individually change coins per payline and coin value until you find your perfect stake. But, if you’re like us and don’t care about going that far in-depth? You can just spam click plus and minus until you find a bet that works for you. Gamblers can wager between GBP 0.07 and GBP 35 per spin.
If you’re looking to win the top prize of this slot, you will have to cross your fingers. Because winning the jackpot is only possible through the jackpot special feature! That bonus, in turn, demands that you get super lucky and land three of the most valuable symbol. And even if you succeed in doing so, you only have a shot at hitting the most valuable fixed jackpot, since there are three. Despite that, this game has a medium variance and an RTP of 96.45%. With an above average RTP, it’s cleared all the minimal conditions to be recommended. All that’s left is to see how its bonuses hold up!

Unsurprisingly, the results aren’t that grand. There’s only so much you can do with a 3x3 board, after all! First on the list is the Wild. When two Wilds are present on the reels, the reel with the missing third Wild will play a single re-spin. If another Wild appears, then you win the associated cash prize.
And if you want to win free spins, you need three flaming 88 icons with a jackpot badge. How do you make this badge appear? You can’t: whether or not it appears is completely random! But when three eligible symbols appear at the same time, they start a jackpot bonus. In it, you flip face-down coins to reveal them as red, blue or green. The first colour that completes three coins is the jackpot you win.
This release is far from perfect. But it feels so different to play that it proved to be a nice change of pace. We’re usually not huge fans of classic slots, but Fire 88 won us over! It goes to show just how important a good special feature or two can be to just about any type of game! If you enjoy three reel releases, we recommend checking it out.
