WGS Technology's Fire Hawk is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot based on Native American culture. This theme sticks out because there aren't an abundance of games based on American Indians. You can also look forward to a few features that make this slot more entertaining. But does an interesting theme and a few features make Fire Hawk an overall winner? Find out as we cover all the major aspects of this game.
Symbols and Betting
Symbols in Fire Hawk include a wooden pipe, canvas drum, headdress, Indian woman, flaming eagle (Fire Hawk) and Indian chief. This is probably one of WGS' better efforts from a visual perspective because the symbols look very authentic. The only complaint we have about the graphics is that the background is a little dull compared to the symbols. The fun animations partly make up for this, though, with Fire Hawk soaring through the air, and the chief looking on while his tribe dances around the fire.
As for betting, Fire Hawk allows you to play 1-25 paylines and wager $0.01 - $10.00 per coin. This makes for a minimum wager of one cent and a max bet of $250.00 per spin. Also note that you can use Autoplay and Bet Max buttons to select your wagering options much faster.
Fire Hawks Special Features: Gamble Option and Scatter Pays Up to 100x
The chief is the wild symbol, appearing on reels 2 and 4 and substituting for all symbols except Fire Hawk. Speaking of which, Fire Hawk is the scatter, multiplying payouts by 2x (2 symbols), 5x (3 symbols), 20x (4 symbols) and 100x (5 symbols).
The one other feature that you can expect in this game is the gamble option. Following any winning payout, you can choose to gamble your winnings by either picking if a card's color will be red or black, or choosing what suit it'll be. You double your winnings by correctly guessing the color, and quadruple your winnings by picking the right suit.
One huge downside of Fire Hawk is that it doesn't offer free spins or a second-screen bonus. Some of WGS' other 5-reelers at least offer free spins, which adds to the disappointment here.
Fire Hawk Slots Mobile Play
You can play Fire Hawk at US-friendly online casinos through PC, Mac, Android and iOS Apple devices.
In summary, we really like Fire Hawk's theme and how the symbols depict Native-American culture. We also think that the wild and scatter symbols add some excitement while you're playing. The one improvement that we can see would be adding a second-screen bonus round or at least free spins. Without this, Fire Hawk is pretty basic when you get beyond the cool theme.
