Interesting notes about Fire!:

  • Marketing slogans:
    • “When you’re hot you’re hot!”
    • “It’s hot! It’s smokin! It’s burnin up the charts!”
    • “FIRE’s coming out in a blaze of glory that’s firing up play and profits at every location!”
    • “This FIRE is matchless!”
  • Easter Eggs (Ok, so these aren’t that interesting but they’re still easter eggs!) – from the Cows and Easter Eggs website
    • In the barn, there is a cow mooing.
    • A moo is also heard on coin-drop and when pressing start.
