Players can enjoy a trip to the Orient and celebrate the Chinese New Year with Lucky Firecracker, an online slot game from Microgaming. Released in 2015 Lucky Firecracker follows another of Microgaming’s developments, Gung Pow.
Lucky Firecracker has 5 reels, 3 rows and has 243 ways to win. There is no usual payline structure and wins are created as long as players have matching symbols on the adjacent reels which pay out from left to right. Lucky Firecracker features colourful symbols and Chinese music plays in the background. Players can win a maximum of 90 000 coins during the free spins round and a possible 500 coins with scatter payouts.
Lucky Firecracker Symbols
The symbols include a range of different firecrackers, large rockets, firecrackers, paper lanterns and sparklers, which offer payouts between 300 and 50 coins. Also included are the playing card symbols Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine.
The wild symbol is the Lucky Firecracker logo written in Chinese and the Chinese dollar is the scatter symbol. The wild symbol will substitute for all of the other symbols, except the scatter to create winning combinations and will only appear on reels 2 and 4.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
The scatter symbol will activate the free spins round and this will activate when 3 or more of these appear on the reels. Players will be rewarded with 15 free spins and a multiplier of 3 times.
Lucky Firecracker has a gamble feature that allows players the possibility of more wins. This feature is triggered at any time when there is a winning combination on the reels. During the gamble feature players must choose the correct colour of the card and if they guess correctly they will double their win, but if they guess incorrectly they will lose all their winnings. The gamble feature is optional. Players may gamble their winnings until the gamble limit is reached.
