Without a doubt the worst slot i have ever played in my 10 years of slotting , Extremely confusing features with graphics that do not load up , The pays are on par with Starburst with the variance of Raging Rhino ,
One bonus round in 1800 spins returning 0.7x stake for a grand RTP of 48% over 3 days and 3 sessions .My highest win was 30x stake in the entire 1800 spin session !
I am convinced with the gaming being brand new along with the graphics errors when getting certain features that this game may have an actual error .

Would love to hear others opinions on this slot if they have played it and what there rtps have been

I have had many winning and losing sessions over the years but this was something else and there really seemed to be something odd with the way it played ,
The game is currently live at Casumo and a few others
Thanks

Never played it for real and after trying it there i doubt i ever will.

Some people might like the retro style look but just was not for me.

Anyway it took me 6 spins to trigger the bonus in which i reached level 2 in demo mode and total pay for bonus round was 72x stake. Gave it another 20 spins in which i triggered one fire drill.

Gave up right away as its a horrible looking slot. Only tried it after your post to see what it was like.

Shirox1980, eh? I wonder...

iSoftBet's Mega Boy also has a retro look to it. Looks like Super Mario World from 1991. If you grew up in the late 1980s and loved video games then you might appreciate Flame Busters more.

So it seems some people dislike old retro style graphics... I personally don't mind them and my tests on this game are alright. The bonus feature can pay well, but like any slot, you have to give it loads of sessions. Top symbol pays 10x your bet so at 243 ways, it can pay 2.43K x your bet.

As for the streamer wins... Welcome to the Shirox1980 attitude. This is completely normal for him! Many people don't like his stream because of this, I don't mind it.

Haha yeah thats him.... he always complaints, and if he hits iver 500x usually its OK ;)

I somehow find it weird as well, on the other hand its just honest as he probably loses as much as as he wins and those hits only
Compensate for the losses so its not not like he invets 50 eur a week and then gets 600 eur :)

It's shit. I saw this and just couldn't face doing the video.

Never mind, a little tip for you all, Netent's next release is going to be Neon Staxx, with Butterflies instead errrr...called 'Butterfly Staxx'. No shit.

Video games were invented. No Gambling involved. We played Breakout & space Invaders.

Then we had Video Slots. Real money gaming. Real money payouts.

Now we have games that are a cross between the too. They are gambling games but with more emphasis on "game play" and graphics. The games pay less more often and they pay more less often than ever before, because nowadays you pay for "game" & graphics.

Soon they will have the perfect cross. You will have very little chance of winning anything but you will happy to lose because you enjoyed the game play & graphics so much that there is no need for monetary rewards. They will still be "Gambling" games but the variance will be so high it will be more like the lottery. Although instead of costing 10p for 5 minutes of play on Space Invaders, It will cost £1 for 2 seconds of play on slot games.

The idea is to grab as much as possible as quick as possible, That means paying out as little as possible. With a few bent politicians and law makers the RTP's will be lowered. It will be "Smash n Grab" like never before.

I wonder if ile be around for the "Virtual 3D, Holographic, MMORP" casino's that will be charging an entrance fee just for visiting.

Sorry, Beer :)

I thought it was an amazing slot in terms of design, but i grew up playing a super nintendo :D

The pays can be a little low for the free spins as it's highly dependent on reaching the higher levels during the bonus, from level 3 things start to get quite interesting, so i can imagine anything above that has some great potential.

Personally I think this might be a solid candidate for Game of the Year 2017!

I've played it a lot since it was launched at Casumo, and as Wild Reels says, the bonus game is really interesting if you manage to upgrade the symbols quickly.

The largest win Thunderkick have been able to produce on it in testing is 5.280 x stake, so it clearly have a very good potential as well.

I've had a lot of 1-5x bonuses on it, but as for most other games with building features (Dead or Alive, Kitty Glitter etc.) you won't win much unless you manage to build up the extras.

I'd say I prefer to get the "Fire Drill" feature, where you can get from 1-5 symbols turning into flames, I've had all the different setups and it can pay really well.

Graphic's and sound wise, I'd say this is a 10/10 if you like Nintendo 8-bit games, and I just love those.

Yest another really good production from Thunderkick!

Im one of those who kinda like the slot too. Its certainly refreshing and kudos to Thunderkick devs for being so creative. You might not like their slots but they certainly arent just releasing blatant copies of their own (and other provider slots), like some other proivders do. Wont mention any names like playngo or microgaming so lets just say some providers dont mind cloning stuff. :D

I recently tried some of their slots (luchadora, rift, this one and exploding heads thingy) and ive had wins of over 100x on each of those and on all bar Rift i had wins of over 200x too. Biggest win was 520x on luchadora free spins with all wilds unlocked.

Their free spins are mostly about collecting stuff though (rift scatters, luchadora wilds, this one bells or whatever it is) so i can see a patern there but their slots really are interesting, especially if we compare them to some other providers. Plus most of their slots actually have decent potential, and sometimes it really reminds me of playing 300 shields bonus where you are hoping to reach that final level, and its all without 300 shields horrid base game so thats a plus too.

I mean just compare Flame busters to some recent Clonegaming releases like Fortune girl and such... this one feels and plays like 8bit game, while Fortune girl is ... ugh idk how to even properly describe that one :D

Wish I had a screenshot, but I won just over $500 in the bonus round betting 40c. This game can pay in a hurry once you clear 4 of the bonus symbols. I have had some nice payouts.

Due to the graphics however, not a game to play a long time. Come in...hit it with 1.00 to 2.00 bets for 35-50 spins and hope for the best!

Haven't hit a bonus yet but I'm going to keep trying. I like the potential it can pay. It's probably just as good as any 243 Ways slot, maybe better.

Every time I take a peak at Twitch Shirox1980 is always streaming. Is he the professional slots player someone mentioned some time ago? Has anybody ever seen the "girlfriend" he claims he has? I don't know how he and the Casino Daddy guys never get tired of playing slots everyday.

I personally think this slot is one of the best releases of the year. It has everything I enjoy about slots! It's pretty high variance though so does take some patience.

In response to your question regarding the payouts I have included the current community data for this game. Looks pretty good to me so far although not too many spins in the pool yet! :thumbsup:

Time to eat dirt here.

Huge turn around in opinion after playing it for a couple weeks.

This is the best slot thunderkick has come out with ever in my opinion. I judged it by the graphics and how different it was but after giving it a chance after a few people saying it was decent, I have grown to absolutely love this slot. Everything about it is awesome.

It can be tough as nails and balance draining. I always start out on .50 bets but ive had great luck on it which helps with the change of tune too :oops:

But my rtp is 1455% on this. I know that wont last but really great potential and exciting bonus round.

I have seen his stream a handful of times and I think he just plays for the sign ups. Whether you like this guy or not, his chat is an absolute zoo. Ive complained about one or two other peoples chat here but this guys room is absolute pond scum. Its full of people flaming, swearing, bullying and everything else imaginable. And I dont even know where they come from because you dont really see them in any other channels.

But to answer your question about how do they not get bored. Its their day job to them. They are there to get people to sign up and dnations so I guess they figure its better to press buttons then work in a factory.

1. The two new Thunderkick games (Flame Busters and Barber Shop Uncut) are going to get long plays next time around. The potential in both is tremendous. It's time to stop playing Bonanza, Wolf Gold, Book of Dead and Break 'Da Bank Again because the big wins aren't coming. I also like The Rift, though I know you don't.

2. Shirox has no moderators. I doubt he even looks at his chat. That's probably why it's a free for all. You can act like a jackass and not get timed out or banned. He's only out to get his quotas.

The Casino Daddy chat is probably filled with naive people who know nothing about the real reasons these three guys stream all day.
