Push Gaming Launches Fire Hopper

The London-based games developer Push Gaming continues its streak of game launches this year and counts Fire Hopper as its latest addition to their slot collection. A beautiful countryside setting and a fire frog that might turn your money into gold. What more could you ask for right before Christmas.

High Volatility And Big Payouts

Like many other Push Gaming slots, Fire Hopper is considered a highly volatile game, making each spin even more exciting. Before we continue, let’s quickly brush up on this feature.

High variance, as it’s often referred to, means that a slot pays out less frequently, but if it does, the winnings tend to be on the higher side. If you’re a risk-taker that can survive a drought period, then high volatility slots guarantee the most fun with the highest potential reward. Keep in mind, though, that you might have to sustain several rounds with zero wins, so only players with a healthy bankroll or those that have good self-control should opt-in for high variance slots.

Instant Wins up to 1,000x Your Wager

When you think Push Gaming has ticked all boxes of a fantastic slot game, they come up with a big surprise. Unusual for these types of games, but Fire Hopper comes with an instant win feature of up to 1,000x your wager. When the frog symbol lands on the screen and an instant win symbol is in view, the frog will leap over to collect your win. If a multiplier is attached to the frog symbol, it will transfer over to the instant win amount. This way, you’re looking at wins up to one thousand times the money you’ve wagered that spin. And as the name suggests, the money is paid out instantly; no questions asked.

Fire Hopper Pays Out Big 

Push Gaming made sure that Fire Hopper is not only fun but also rewarding. As per their official website, the game boasts an RTP of 96.57%. The term RTP stands for Return to Player and describes the percentage a slot game pays out to its player for each $/£/€ 1 wagered. There are two important facts to note, though. Firstly, RTP is measured over time, typically thousands of spins, so the short- and mid-term return percentage can be much lower. Secondly, RTP may vary per casino depending on the market, so you should always check the real RTP rate. By the way, at the time of writing, the highest observed win on Fire Hopper has been 50,000x the amount wagered.

A Note About Online Slots

After all the bragging about big payouts and instant wins, it’s important to note that online slot games are purely based on luck. There is no magic trick to it, you cannot predict the next win, and the chance to walk away with a big win is much lower than losing it all. Playing online slots is a form of entertainment and not a means to earn money. It’s like the state lottery that you might play every Saturday; you most likely won’t win the jackpot, but if you do, it’s going to be a life-changing experience.
