Burning Desire Slot Machine by Microgaming - Review and Play for free

Burning Desire is a true classic slot, which almost emulates the land-based casino experience with its theme and with the way it plays. I enjoyed it when I played it and I’ll share my experience with you.

The slot game was released in 2009 by Microgaming, so it could be called a modern classic slot, and the graphics are really good and detailed. The game is played on a 5×3 board but unlike the vast majority of classic slots, it uses 243 ways to win, which is a very common setup in Microgaming slots. Some players won’t like the change while the others will embrace it, I personally liked the fact that all adjacent symbols can form a win. You pay 25 coins for those 243 ways to win.

Theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.19%, which is plenty for a classic slot, and classic slot machine players should probably switch to this slot because it pays much better than most in this niche. Variance is medium as opposed to more common high variance, as the game feels easy to play and pays often enough. However, the maximum win isn’t sacrificed, as you can win up to 30,000 coins during the main game and 90,000 coins during the free spins game as the prizes there are tripled.

Main game and paytable

The game uses ten symbols, and five of them are the usual low-paying card symbols but don’t pay that poorly. You can still get a nice win if you land five-of-a-kind. The five main symbols are, from best to worst, Diamond, 7, Bell and Bar, plus a symbol that isn’t commonly used, a Rose, and that symbol defines the theme of this slot game. Top three symbols pay nice prizes for five-of-a-kind that range from 1500 to 3000 coins. Burning Desire Logo is a Wild and it only appears on reels 2 and 4, and it doesn’t land very often. All the symbols have nice artwork, with flames a common theme on all the high-value symbols, the card symbols are drawn nicely, and the special symbols stand out.  While many will feel the theme is simple, it’s actually a very good and profesionally done theme that suits this game perfectly.

Bonus features

You need to land three, four or five Coin Scatters on your reels to trigger the free spins game. Regardless of the number of Scatters, your prize will always be 15 free spins. During the feature all wins are tripled, and that’s the only difference to the main game. Since the prizes are tripled the maximum win here is 90,000 coins. The free spins game won’t be very rewarding most of the time, and the best thing that can happen is to land a huge winning combination during this time when a x3 multiplier applies. That will, of course, be rare, and this means the variance of the free spins game is very high in case of Burning Desire. Most of the time you won’t win much but the chance of huge returns is there.

Conclusion

Burning Desire is one of the better online classic slot games as it offers a true classic slot experience, yet has very good payout that guarantees the game won’t be robbing you of your money. There’s a chance to win big and the game is easy to play, so it all combines into one pleasant classic slot experience. The theme is a particular highlight, and the game looks like one of the slot machines you can see in a land-based casino. This is a really good slot by Microgaming and it’s no wonder it’s popular even today.
