The slots released by that esteemed company are well-known in many countries worldwide including South Africa. The game featured in this review groups under the category of three-reel solutions. And it is focused exactly on conservative SA punters who prefer simplicity over sophistication of bonus features.
The graphics are bog-standard and the backstage depicts non-animated fire flames. The user interface buttons are self-explanatory and unpretentious – just colored rectangular boxes with printed titles such as Balance, Auto and Start. Three paylines run horizontally and two paylines have a diagonal arrangement.
