Graphics & Sounds (9)
The graphics of the symbols are sharp and detailed. Even the background to the reels is clearly visible. The best aspect about the graphics and sound is the audiovisual animation in the wild and scatter symbol. The game sounds and the background tune in the free spins round are the usual fare.
Theme and Concept (9)
The theme of American Indians is not very common and is therefore refreshing. It has been executed well. The symbols have been carefully chosen to depict various aspects of American Indian culture. The animations, particularly the war dance, enhance the theme. If thematic symbols had been used instead of high value cards it would have been better.
Game Features (8)
The game features are a bit disappointing in Fire Hawk. The wild symbol appears only on reels 2 and 4. This reduces the chance of getting winning combinations. There is no bonus came on the second screen, which is almost a mandatory feature in contemporary slot games. The free spins round is interesting because the multiplier is determined by the number of Chief symbols appearing on the reels.
Betting Options (9)
In Fire Hawk players can manipulate only the coin size and the number of paylines. The number of coins per payline is fixed at one by the game. However this does not matter because the coin sized spread is large enough.
Fire Hawk does not offer a progressive jackpot. The first two fixed jackpots are attractive at 6000 coins and 3000 coins. The remaining fixed jackpots are on the lower side.
