In addition to slot game staple features like Wilds and Scatter symbols, Fire siege fortress has some features with original names and and two different Free Spins modes.

Verdict

Like pretty much all NetEnt games Fire siege fortress is visually highly attractive. The slot has many different symbols and great graphics that are very dynamic. On paper the game has plenty of interesting features with cool and fitting names, however it might not be that easy to trigger these and when they are activated, most of them don’t award you a great deal.

As it is a medium-high volatility slot, wins can be harder to come by but when you do hit them winnings can be sufficiently rewarding. This game might not be as suitable for smaller and lower risk-players and those who are not at all attracted to the theme of Medieval warfare.

If you love this theme and/ or want to treat your eyes to a well-designed game Fire siege fortress might be worth a spin or two.
