Light & Wonder has taken us on quite a journey to beautiful parts of the world in their Ultimate Fire Link series. Light & Wonder has kept gameplay the same but each slot places us in a different atmosphere thanks to the appealing changes in theme.

Ultimate Fire Link River Walk is just as appealing as those before it, with stunning visuals, quality graphics, and generous Jackpots waiting to be won. Hold & Win rounds are becoming as common as Mystery symbols in a Megaways slot these days, but it’s not for everyone.

There was a time when every new iSoftBet release was all about the Hold & Win feature, which is probably why so many of us have gone off it. That being said, if you fancy yourself the Mega Jackpot of 10,000x, you’re gonna have to get behind the Hold & Win feature if you are to claim it for yourself.

Once Free Spins are triggered, Light & Wonder gives you the freedom to choose your own destiny by offering up 6 Free Spins options, each differing in a number of Free Spins and Wild Multipliers. High risk equals high reward, but if you’re uncertain which to go for, there’s a Mystery option you can choose that makes the decision for you.

All in all, Ultimate Fire Link River Walk is a breath of fresh air in terms of theme and a great addition to Light & Wonder’s Ultimate Fire Link series, and we can’t wait to see where they take us next time!
