Amatic releases another retro slot game with a 1980s or 1990s vibe through Bells on Fire. Although Bells on Fire certainly doesn’t have the ‘bells and whistles’ of many other more enhanced games in terms of bonus rounds and animations, it’s beauty and charm lies in its simplicity.
The only sound effects are the whirring of the mechanical gears that would be heard when playing actual slot games at a casino and the jingling and whistling sounds that come with each win. This makes Bells on Fire akin to many other retro, classic slot games like Hot Star, which is also developed by Amatic.
The standard 5 by 3 reel of this slot game is nothing special. The symbols are also quite common with only the Wild Bell symbol, which is a bell that is engulfed in flames, fitting the theme of the game. The other symbols that can be found in the game include a scatter Star symbol, which pays out quite well, a 7 symbol, a Bar symbol, a Watermelon symbol, a Grape symbol, an Orange symbol, a Cherry symbol and a Lemon symbol. There aren’t that many symbols in this game, which reduces the amount of possible combinations.
There are 40 fixed pay lines. This is a lot more than what is offered by most standard slot games. However, the more pay lines, the merrier. It makes it a lot easier for you to win from each spin.

If you get stacked 7 symbols on all of the reels, you take home 1,000x your total bet.
