Who doesn’t love a Valentine’s Day slot? To be honest, a “burning desire” doesn’t sound very appealing to me. In fact, it’s vaguely reminiscent of some kind of venereal disease filled night of passionate love making. I don’t think that’s what Microgaming intended for this 5-reel, 243-payline video slot, but you can’t have everything - especially when it comes to the game of love. In truth, Burning Desire is THE slot to get you going this Valentine’s Day - candles, chocolates, and oysters be damned! With great features, superb animation, a sexy theme and so much more, this slot is set to get you hot and heavy on the international day of love.
Overall, Burning Desire is another enchanting slot from Microgaming. Bonus features make up the balance of this slot, with free spins, and Wild substitutions taking over the game board. Score huge wins and massive payouts, and get the chance to double your wins with the built-in gamble feature. This Valentine’s Day slot game is a real treat. As far as online casino slot games go, this one’s a winner.
The Lovebird Sings
Fantastic animation and symbols fill this romance-themed slot to the brim. Burning Desire shows off its features on 5-reels, 243-paylines and a background that’ll see you shiver with anticip….ation. The gameplay is solid, the features are exciting, and the max coin win is big enough that even the biggest size queens won’t have a problem with it (really, it’s nothing to be sneezed at).
- The symbols are made up of diamonds, flaming lucky 7s (it’s getting hot in here), flaming gold bells, bars, roses, and royal values from 9 to Ace. The Wild is represented by the game’s logo (so you’ll never forget what you’re playing) and the Scatter is represented by a gold coin with a flame on it. The symbols are brought to life by the animation which, as usual from Microgaming, is solid.
- The Wild, as one would expect, substitutes for everything except the Scatter. However, this symbol is fairly shy and only appears on reels 2 and 4. Blink and you’ll miss it!
- There aren’t too many special features to this slot, but you’ll still benefit from free spins. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of the flaming coin Scatter symbols will trigger 15 free spins, during which all wins are tripled.
- The gamble feature is great too – activate it at any point during game play to get the chance to double your wins. Use this button wisely – because if you lose, your payout is void.
- As far as game performance goes, you’re really in for a treat. Burning Desire boasts stellar love-themed graphics to get you in the mood, a sexy soundtrack, and gameplay available on mobile, desktop, and tablet. So, you can even play this bad boy in bed (if you know what I mean – though that may dampen the mood a bit).
- The maximum coin win is pretty good for an old-school slot like this. During regular gameplay you can expect to win up to 30,000 coins, and during free spins your win will be tripled up to 90,000.
Not All’s Fair in Love and War
Microgaming has really produced something special with this slot. Whether you’re single or in a relationship this Valentine’s Day, Burning Desire can easily fill the void within. As the game opens you’ll immediately get a sense of what you’re in for, as the screen is covered with flaming roses, bells, diamonds, and the rest. Activate the free spins using the Scatter and score 15 rounds, plus wins that are tripled up to 90,000 coins. The Wild will substitute for any symbol except the Scatter, so it’s really good at roleplay (if that’s your kind of thing). The overall feel of this game is one of romance, so set the scene: light some candles, pour yourself a glass of champagne, and let Burning Desire take you on a whirlwind tour of the best that Microgaming has to offer.
