No one knows for sure what the word “Pyrons” means, and the theme of the slot isn’t so clear, either. What is clear, though, is that it is an interesting game with some equally interesting features. Gameplay is quite simple, but the simplicity actually makes it even more appealing. This can be the perfect game to play if you’re in the mood for something that’s free from clutter and complication.
Set against a purple, hazy background, the slot has a somewhat electrical look and feel, with all the pipes and wires on the edges of the background. Even the game symbols have a cool, somewhat futuristic design. And everything is topped off with just the right kind of music.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You can start by clicking on the Lines +/- tabs to set the number of lines you want to play. You may then click on the Coin Value +/- tabs to set your preferred coin denomination. If you want to wager the highest amount allowed, click on the Max Bet button. To set the reels into motion, click on the Spin tab in the middle of the control panel. For a chosen number of uninterrupted spins, click on the Autoplay button to the right of the Spin tab.
You will not see any of the familiar playing card symbols in this game, as all base game symbols are the more traditional ones, reminiscent of classic one-armed bandit slot machines. There are only six base game symbols, and they are represented by all the symbols you in a classic fruit machine. You will see cherries, an orange, a lemon, a plum, a golden star, and the lucky 7. These symbols are all seen inside a glass sphere.
The game has no Wild, Scatter, or Bonus symbols to speak of. All game features are tied to the six base game symbols.
One thing that makes this game interesting is the Exploding Symbols feature. Every time you land a winning combination, all the symbols involved in the win will explode in a liquid splash of various colours. New symbols will then fall into place to replace the ones that exploded, giving you another shot at landing a winning combination without having to bet more money. This feature could go on for as long as you keep landing winning combinations.
Additionally, each win comes with a multiplier, and the value of that multiplier increases with every subsequent win. You could get as much as a 20x multiplier if you keep landing winning combinations. The multiplier value drops down to the base value of 2x after every non-winning spin.
