Update You can now play the Fire Horse mobile slot over at Guts casino »
IGT's latest casino release is a beautiful fiery new mobile slot game with 720 ways to pay... but have we seen it all before?
We love getting casino news of new IGT slots, especially ones that come in the 720 ways to win format that has made the provider so popular.
After all, isn’t one of our favourite mobile slots Sushi Yum Yum extra wasabi by the same provider? Using that same layout?
But, once we started looking at the finer details, something peculiar came up.
However, before we begin, let’s have a look at everything we know about the new Fire Horse slot coming May 12th 2016 and then you too might notice this little something that caught our eye.
We promise, this video is very short, nothing quite like the grand in-depth ‘give everything away’ videos from the likes of NetEntertainment Games.
But you need to watch it to get the gran scale of things.
It’s pretty cool right?
Casumo gives you more for your money, with 5 deposit bonuses from the word go.
Granted, it’s a little old fashioned in that ‘IGT slots’ kind of way, but that’s IGT for you. They are a walking contradiction.
On one hand, they’ve been around the Vegas scene for so long, and have so many classically beautiful slot machines, they can’t help but refer back to their most popular games.
On the other hand, they are so huge, and have such a large online slot studio team, that every once in a while, they bring out wonderfully modern fares likes the Family Guy slot, or even less well known casino games like Apollo Rising.
With hand drawn horse, each with their own flaming manes, opulent jewels and, what looks like, antique urns and coins, it’s got an old fashion style to it that made us wonder if it wasn’t already a land-based machine.
Which, of course, it was. We’d personally never come across it before, but a quick search is all it took to confirm it.
So brick and mortar players will enjoy finding a familiar game in the Fire Horse online slot, whilst online gamblers should not be surprised to find that this plays a little differently than they are use to.
Of course we can. The fact that the Fire Horse slot machine already exists means we’ve got plenty of information to give you, including:
If you’re not a fan of IGT, you probably won’t have noticed it. However, if that’s all you play, you probably noticed the very big icy cat waiting to jump on this fiery horse.
That is, of course, that Fire Horse is basically a copy of one of their most popular games of all time; the Siberian Storm slot machine.
It’s so popular in fact, that we already have two versions of this game available to play, the one we’ve already mentioned, and the MegaJackpots Siberian Storm, which has a progressive that runs into the hundreds of thousands.
And that’s just on mobile.
Online you also have Fire Opals and Day of the Dead, if you want a different version of this game.
It really depends on which camp you sit on.
Some of us would argue that the whole point of a great game is that it’s a great game. You don’t need 10 copies of the Gonzo’s Quest slot – if you want to play on Gonzo, you open up Gonzo.
Why do you need more than one?
Others would argue that variety is the spice of life. And sometimes you might not want to play in an Amazonian jungle. Sometimes you want to escape to China, or get a slice of Americana – all whilst playing the same mechanics.
Basically, you can’t have too much of a good thing.
We tend to sit somewhere in the middle; you can have too much of a good thing. Microgaming release the same video slot but with 4, 5, 6 different skins, it starts to look lazy.

We don’t mind a few copies, but mostly we want NEW mobile slots. As in, never played before.
That said, if you forget the theme, even machines with the same mechanics pay out differently. Yes, it’s all random, but sometimes your favourite might be feeling a little tight and not paying out.
So it’s nice to know that an alternative exists, which might be feeling a little friendlier, to try out.
Granted, fans of the ‘one game is enough’ theory would argue that that is what other Android and iPhone slots are for – to give you that chance at a bigger win. But if you really love the mechanics, what’s wrong with sticking with it?
At all good IGT casinos of course.
Our personal favourites? It’s got to be Leo Vegas casino, who give you 200 free spins and £1,500 / €$1,000 in bonus over 4 deposits.
That’s enough to play on any variety of IGT slot games to see if you’re a fan.
If you’re on mobile, we heartily recommend Sushi Yum Yum, which is only available at mobile casinos, and of course, the original grandaddy of 720 ways to pay, Siberian Storm.
Then you’ll be glad you’ll have Fire Horse as an alternative come May 12th 2016.Start Playing at Leo Vegas »
