Dance the night away with the voluptuous Fire Queen mobile slot, but beware of getting burned. You will never tame her, but you might just seduce her for the night.
How we felt about this WMS slot machine changed from moment to moment. At first we hated her. Then we got bored of her. Then we swore we’d never play any other slot machine ever. But not before falling back to tears again.
Finally we left this Fire Queen slot with an ambivalent feeling of having been in a tempestuous relationship. We still love her, but we’re not sure we are strong enough to go back. Yet in our hearts, we know we will, in those dark 3am moments of thrill seeking.
We warn you now, when we put ‘high’ in its volatility scale, we meant it. This is only for gamblers looking for 1,000x your bet or more, and have the patience to go find it.
The background of this strangely designed 100 payline slot brings to mind an Amazonian / Greek fantasy land. It has a certain Dungeons & Dragons slot feel to it, as you enter the tower of an exotic fire-bending enchantress.
The high card symbols are all very bland, but the rest of the details are well executed, from the way the wilds flame across reel 1 & 2 to mirror each other, to the expanding wilds on reel 3, 4 and 5. It’s even effortless to play, as you can easily change your bet and set auto-play in a few simple clicks.
And did we mention the music and sounds are simply wonderful? During the free spins you feel like you’re in the middle of a film score, it’s that good.
What it doesn’t do well is look beautiful on smaller screens. Much of the detail is lost when you play on your Android phone or iPhone, leaving you peering down at the screen in an effort to make out the symbols.
It’s not unplayable, but it kills a lot of the excitement.
True enough, there are few tablet slots out there who are quite as high variance, though Microgaming’s Isis and the Great Blue slot come to mind.
That’s because there are several ways to get the free spin rounds, which is where the big hits of the game show up. As a WMS Double Money Burst slot Fire Queen has a 2×2 reels followed by 6×3 reels, each with their own unique wild features, which we write more about below.
In the base game, this helps keep your budget from draining away. During the free spin round, where you can get huge multipliers of up to 100x and reels that make the wilds sticky or replicate, it can create colossal wins.
And isn’t that, at the end of the day, why we play slot machines?

Wild on Reels 1 & 2: The Fire Queen herself is the wild symbol, and when she shows up in either of the mini 2x2 reels, she'll flame up or down to reproduce another wild mirroring where she landed. It sounds more complicated than it actually is, but basically, if you get a wild on the mini reels, you'll automatically get a second one show up.
Wild on Reels 3, 4, 5: These six symbol reels come with expanding wilds, so you'll get the lady herself covering all six symbols. Combine these with the wilds on reels 1 & 2 and you can get some nice 20x to 30x your bet wins to keep you going through all the empty spins.
Free Spins 1 (the most likely): If you get 4 of the exact same symbols on the either of the mini-reels, you'll trigger 5 free spins.
The symbols that activated these free spins are held during your free spins, so you better cross all your fingers and toes that you got the set of four using wilds. Because that means sticky wilds for all of the 5 spins.
Sure, it might not sound like a lot, but we've experienced ourselves a win of 211x our bet, so don't tell us it's not worth collecting wilds.
Free Spins 2: Get three scattered bonus symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5. These are the crystal ball... thingy... symbol. You'll know it when you see it.
Probably the least satisfying of the free spins rounds, as you only get 5 free spins, and with nothing extra special to them. With these volatile reels you can easily end up with 2x your bet (yes we've had it) to, of course, far more. But mostly that first one.
Free Spins 3 (harder than burning down a house): These are the game equivalent of hitting the jackpot. You'll need four of the same symbols on the mini-reels to the left AND the three scatters on reel 3, 4 and 5.
This feature is near mythical, but exist. You'll get 20 free spins and a 100x your bet win straight out of the bat. Then you'll also get those four symbols remaining sticky for all of the free spins, giving you multiple chances at wins, and all those wilds roaming around.
It's a beautiful sight to behold.
Is this one of the best WMS slots, probably not, but there's an emotional ride to be had here. The three stars may not seem like a lot, but don't let our rating of this Fire Queen mobile slot fool you. We love/hate this game with equal burning pleasure, and we suspect she'll get just as many high emotions from you.
But she lost a star when she couldn't fit those 6 symbols down reels properly on our mobile phone screen, and one star further because we don't want casual gamblers to go in playing, thinking it's easy.
She's not easy. She's hard, difficult and at times infuriating. But take your time to soften her up, and you might never want to play another slot game again.
