Go back to the times when Greek Gods would rule the Earth and mingle with men with Fire Lightning from BGaming. The slot includes 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. As the birthplace of Western civilisation and democracy, it is little wonder that Ancient Greece continues to influence popular culture even today, even when it comes to sweepstakes gaming, as this title is also available in sweepstakes version, so you can play it legally from the US.
Play with the Best in Slots
The B in BGaming stands for ‘best‘, and the game provider lives up to the name with this game. Having opted for a rebrand for SoftSwiss, an in-house game studio, the slot has a new lease on life.
With Fire Lightning, you have a gamut of features that players will enjoy, like the gamble round, sticky wilds and a bonus game to win you the maximum multiplier for the game of 1,000x. BGaming adds a good hit rate to the game at 4.41 with its signature medium to high volatility.

Gameplay and Mechanics
Fire Lightning meshes simple gameplay with well-spaced-out buttons to make for glitch-free reel spinning. In typical BGaming fashion, the spin button is centrally placed at the bottom of the reels.
Beside it is the auto spin button with which you can keep the reels spinning up to 1,000 times. The bottom panel is where you set your bet, which is quite neat. Use (+)(-) buttons to change the number of lines you want to wager on and your bet value. The game includes bet values that start at 0.01 SC and go up to 50 SC.
More Controls for Your Gaming Pleasure
Above the screen to your right, well away from the reels, you have three buttons for game functions. Press the badge to see just how provably fair the game is. Check how the game seeds you and how this affects the results at the end of each spin.
The second button mutes volume, and the third is a menu for the game. Click on the third button, and a menu pops up with sound and spin settings, as well as the rules and regulations and the paytable.
A wide array of symbols is not usually the best thing for players because this often means that it is harder to land a winning combination. However, this should not trouble you as you have high payouts for different symbols.
The highest paying symbol on the reels is the fire lightning logo which pays 1,000x your bet for a match of 5. After this, you have different gods and goddesses on the reels. Apollo and Themis are the two highest-paying symbols with a payout of 400x your wager for a match of 5. Ares and Dionysus both have a payout of 300x when you match 5 symbols.
Demeter and Thor are the last two high-paying symbols with a payout of 200x your bet when you get 5 of any of the two on the reels.
The low-paying symbols are a departure from the typical face card symbols. This time, BGaming adds the Greek alphabet as the low-paying symbols. You have 5 of these, and two have a payout of 100x, your bet. Get 5 of any of the remaining 3 symbols, and you get a payout of 80x your wager.

Bonus Features and Special Symbols
If there is anything we know about BGaming, it is that the bonus round always has some features to get you excited. On Fire Lightning, the software provider takes on its traditional 10 free spins on 3 or more scatters. The scatter symbol on the game is the blue and green snowflake-looking charm with the word bonus on it. Get 5 scatters for a payout of x100 your wager and 10 free spins.
The wild symbol is an emblem-looking symbol with the word wild written on it. This symbol replaces all other symbols on the reels except the scatter giving you more winning combinations.
The free spins round comes with sticky wilds, which increase your chances of creating winning combinations. Sticky wild stay on the reels until the bonus spins are over, helping you rack up the wins. With wilds like these, you have a greater chance of hitting the maximum win on the slot if you hit the right symbols with sticky wilds on the reels.
Go Against the Gods on the Gamble Round
We hoped BGaming would have this feature on more of its slots just for the thrill it packs. Win the main game, and the gamble feature is made available to you. Win a round in the base game, and the gamble feature becomes available to you. Find the gamble button next to the spin button to try out this feature.
Bonus Round Interface
Make the Right Guess
How the gamble feature works is that you have to guess the color or suit of a card from a 52-card deck. With this round, your current win is taken as the stake for the gamble round. You have a choice to make between red, black, clubs, spades, diamonds, or hearts. Choose the right color, and your stake is double. Get the suit right and win 4 times your stake.
You can always keep the gamble feature going with your current win as your stake. Take more chances and see how much more you can win. Alternatively, you could abandon the gamble round by clicking back and carrying on with the base game.
Design and Graphics
Fire Lightning is one eye-catching game thanks to the graphics and sound fitted into the game. You have the reels floating in outer space with two burning chalices on either side. The reels are housed in Greek-style pillars that truly bring a feel of Ancient Greece.
The music on the slot is a smooth, calm tune that never feels like too much. That it is subtle and never too loud means that you wouldn’t really notice it looping. Everything about the slot is kept simple but without compromising quality, which we liked.
Fire Lightning Design
BGaming is a well-known software provider, and with Fire Lighting, the game provider ticks all the boxes. You have a decent higher limit for your bets and a lower limit that ensures all casual punters are catered to. With medium to high volatility, the slot has a delectable mix of small and big Gold Coins and Sweepstakes Coins wins that will keep you glued to it.
That you can prove just how fair the game is, means that you never have to worry about where your coins are going. BGaming always does well with the game screen making sure nothing takes away from the reels. This is the case on the slot, as button distribution keeps the reels centrally placed.
We liked that the sweepstakes slot version is not a reboot nor an adoption from smaller studios really shows how well the software provider can create slots. We reckon players will find the slot quite exciting. Try out the game with Gold Coins and see just how fun the wins are when you hit the right symbols, so you can safely switch to Sweepstakes Coins.
