Pull-on your big coat, grab a hot toddy and prepare to win with a fizz and a bang as you enjoy Eyecon’s ‘Firework Frenzy’. Whether it is Bonfire Night, New Year’s Eve or a ‘big bash celebration’ fireworks offer awe and wonder as they burst across the sky.
‘Fireworks Frenzy’ can’t guarantee the cold weather and the damp feet, but it can guarantee great gameplay, retro sound and plenty of wins that will keep you coming back for more.
The game’s slick and unfussy interface is simple and provides you with three chunky buttons to use at the bottom of the screen. The reels contain a combination of explosive and colourful firework bursts, letters and numbers for you to match. The credit, bet and win information is displayed in a sleek and easy to understand format. All of this is set against the distinctive and rich backdrop of a star-studded night sky that hangs over a sparkling metropolis.
It has to be said that it is a little simplistic in its design, but we definitely think that is part of its endearing and enduring charm. There is something delightfully retro about it, and we couldn’t help but feel that the simple sound and clean graphics made it feel like we were playing an 80s handheld computer throwback. We liked the smooth stillness and calmness of the playing experience, too. There isn’t constant and repeating music in the background to annoy and irritate you and force you to toggle on and off. The intuitive autoplay feature is helpful and the interface is slick and easy to navigate and control.
There are five reels to spin with three rows and twenty-five pay lines, which means that there is plenty of opportunity for you to win. The wild symbol is nicely depicted by a Catherine wheel (who hasn’t had a wild experience with a firework designed to spin fire in unpredictable directions!) and the scatter symbol is a set of attractive Chinese firecrackers.
The game bonuses on offer consist of free spins and a great gamble feature. The free spins are triggered by the scatter symbols and there is a range of fifteen to twenty free spins on offer. We were pretty impressed with this as many slots games seem to offer ten free spins only. There is also the chance to multiply wins by three, which leads to even bigger and better payouts. There is also a really good gamble feature in the game, and we really enjoyed this element as it offers the chance to double your money.
With an RTP of 94%, this cracking firework game has a lot going for it.
Overall, whilst it might not offer the exhilaration of other slots games, we felt that it offered something more unique in terms of design and playing experience. It’s an easy game to get to grips with and then sit back and enjoy—one for those who enjoy a relaxing playing experience.
