The graphics, however, do not live up to the professionalism of the music, and the images seem slightly misplaced and lacking in detail. Either way, the aspect of the game that stands out most is the layout of the play area. The vast majority of slot games have five reels with equal rows, but Fire Opals has opted instead to use a play area that is not a square grid, but rather a staggered shape with less available positions. This may seem counterintuitive, since a slot player needs as many positions as possible to create matching sequences. But this is the nature of a new system called MultiWay Xtra.
