This machine has a very large streak
potential in arcades and pubs with good
%. The machine must be full and have
taken some over the back. Simply force
out the the first WILDFIRE (can cost
upto £60) and if streaking the machine
will do 2 - 4 IM's for a dump of £100 /
£125. A very cheap Wildfire may not be
part of the streak, so walk if the next
2 trails are not IMs. If the machine is
showing steady climbing until it pops
then the streak is imminent. Ignore all
stuff on the feature just play out the
top. Simple but effective...
This machine is not quite fully sussed
yet and there maybe a further guide
developed over time. At present no
strategy has been fully sussed out -
although the machine can be forced to do
a sequence of red boards (3 - 5!). From
our experience RED LINES are never
nearly as a available as on say Spin On
It and most of the features are SHITE!
Typical NUMBER TRAIL with 5 bonus
increments that enhances the feature.
Reel wins can also be exchanged in for a
feature and now and again the machine
loves to let you hold the odd symbol out
or all 3 reels for a win above or below
the win line. There is a number trail
bonus at position 4 to help! (yeah
Stoppa - Shite!, Can give trail when
Skill Stop - Use cancel to SLOW the
bonus for best feature entry bonus!
Respin - Hold out for another bonus!
Not sure of the other bonuses.
NOTE: Impulse have introduced symbol
bonuses on the reels to help feature
entry. These are as follows:
Link Up - 3 Lives on each increment of
the trail to advance to feature
Selecta - Select the best feature entry
Boost - BOOOST! (Can give a trail)
FEATURE ENTRY BONUSES
Start - Simply starts the trail!
Bonus - Gives a BONUS!
Extra FIRE - Awards an extra WILD FIRE
symbol (3 needed for WILDFIRE trail!)
Multi Add - Adds to the stacks!
Extra Life - Extra Life!
Positive Signs from Reels
The machine most definitely needs to be
full with trails not costing more than
say £4 a pop - we all know some Impulse
machines can take £15+ per trail! Lots
of trails should be offered and the
machine should be dropping in lots of
symbol bonuses and maybe a high win for
when it says 'hold X reel'. This maybe
upto £15 if the machine has taken a bit
and a jackpot is due. When happy all
LINK UPS should give a trail and 'let em
spins' should occur!
Positive Signs from Feature
2 or more Wildfire symbols with first
few moves giving the third for the
Feature stack getting above FOLLOW ME.
Cash stack £7+
Wildfire Trail Active.
Impulse have produced a very bloated
feature board and for a new £25 game
engine. At first glance the machine
looks a bit complex but it is a very
simple machine with obvious blocks!
Essentially the feature contains 1
lapper trail and second trail that has
to be activated with 3 WILDFIRE symbols.
The inner circular trail adds to the
CASH and FEATURE stacks and also allows
a gamble on the HI-LO when on each
square. When the WILDFIRE trail is
active, the inner trail is used to
advance along the WILDFIRE trail as each
square has a magenta segment such as
MOVE 4 (see image above). When on the
WILDFIRE trail you are offered features,
reel blasts etc. until you reach the top
feature WILDFIRE. The top feature pays
at least £25 and is a random scatter
series of prizes. Getting to the top is
a long repetitive task where obvious
blocks are apparent!
These are a awarded off BONUS NUMBERS on
the HI-LO reel.
EXTRA LIFE - Extra Life!
LUCKY 7 - No Lose Gamble on 7 , if you
die on a ? and the HI-LO reel is on a 7
you will come back to life!
NO LOSE - NO LOSE - may work on ?
STOPPA - Random Stop on lapper trail
SKILL STOP - True skill, pick best
position in lapper!
CHANGE NUMBER - Changes the numbers on
the HI-LO reel!

Invincible Mode (IM)
Wildfire does have any IM where the main
WILDFIRE logo flickers RED. The machine
can do a series of REDS as part of a
STREAK, and no doubt chuck one in to
balance the machine's profile on
Initial indications show this to be a
very 'flat' machine and there are only a
few features with any real JP
capability! It does not seem to be a
collecting or punting machine - it lies
somewhere in between. We think it has a
random streak and know that it will do a
run of invincible boards - but this can
cost £100+ to achieve! The machine does
warm up after £30 - £40 over the back
and will offer constant trails every few
pound but will die about about 2 thirds
up the WILDFIRE trail! There is an
initial cash block at £7 and a further
one at £15/20, when at the £20 mark it
will go to the WILDFIRE feature - but
more often than not costs more than the
usual £25 that the feature awards!
When pushing for WILDFIRE up the
WILDFIRE trail it will do a repetitive
sequence of giving you TAXI's so you can
land on >>> squares for a boost and
trail bonus squares to move you up the
trail. If you land on ? and survive it
will give a bonus and then probably land
on another ? to kill you. This process
can go on for 10 trails before getting
the WILDFIRE feature. Once you get the
feature, it then may do a few REDS after
if on a streak. Despite the array of
features the machine holds no potential
for ripping a quick win. RED LINES are
rarely available and not exactly mouth
watering, although a few have JP
potential. From the RED LINE features,
the best is probably CANON FIRE as you
can use cancel to slow the HI-LO reel
down to hit 2 numbers that will take the
exact amount of positions up the CASH
STACK for the JP.
a scroller on the alpha display that can
be slowed with cancel enough times for a
potential JP. There is a 2 - 3 second
delay on DROP ZONE before you can hit
it, this can be timed for £25, 20 or 15.
This machine is a little risky and is
best played full, more info is to follow
on this one!
