The wombat says: Here at Wombat Towers we are big fans of Bonfire Night. OK, so it’s actually celebrating the exploits of an English 18th Century anarchist, but still, we are all about fireworks – and the bigger the explosions the better as far as we’re concerned. Which is why we were quite excited when we saw the Fireworks Frenzy slot from Eyecon pop up into our spinbox.
Firecracker is one of those feel good games like the Wai Kiki slot and Fluffy Too. Will this game offer us some firecracker wins? Or will it blow up in our faces? Let’s take a look…
Look and Feel
The background to your reels is made up of the black sky with a load of fireworks going off on top of it. This is set in front of the silhouette of a yellow half moon. When you make a win, a great big racket of fireworks exploding greets you right in the eardrums! We could be at the rolling credits of the Bollywood Story slot game. Or maybe Esqueleto Explosivo? 2 more explosive slots that are worth checking out.
It’s simple but quite nice really, particularly if you’re a pyromaniac like this wombat.
Fireworks Frenzy Game Play
Fireworks Frenzy is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. This is a pretty standard configuration on Eyecon slots- you’ll see it on the Twinkle slot, Unicorn Bliss and Sugar Train.
Your symbols on the reels include bright blue fireworks, golden yellow pyrotechnics and a big purple explosion, plus 3 rockets as your high value symbols.
Then there’s the standard playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K & A as your lower value icons (all done up to look like they’ve been drawn with sparklers).
The Wild symbol in Fireworks Frenzy slot is the yellow Catherine Wheel. This cool icon will substitute for all other symbols on the reels (except for the scatter) to make up extra winning combos for you.
It will also triple any wins it contributes to thanks to a x3 Wild Multiplier – which makes us very happy Wombats indeed.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
The Scatter symbols in Fireworks Frenzy slot are the red Chinese fire cracker icons. Land 3x or more of these auspicious symbols anywhere across the reels and you will trigger off the Free Spins bonus round. This means up to 25 free spins for you depending on how many scatters you landed in the first place: 3 scatters = 15 free spins, 4 scatters = 20 free spins and 5 scatters = 25 free spins.
You’ll also be treated to Expanding Wilds in this bonus, where the icons will cover whole reels to give you even bigger wins. Plus, the free spins can be retriggered up to 15 times, which means there’s a possible (and MASSIVE) 375 free spins up for grabs! Yeeehhhhaaa!
Feeling lucky wombat fans? You’ve got the option to gamble your cash on any winning spin that will either double your prize, or lose you everything. Pick correctly 1 of the 2 options that appear in a new window and you’ll double your winnings. But if you get it wrong, you’ll lose it. You can play 5 rounds of the Gamble Bonus which means loads of chances for wins (or losses).
The Expanding Wilds in the Free Spins round sets this game apart from the other Eyecon usual suspects, as does the x3 multiplier. It might look a bit on the old-fashioned side, but this slot is definitely worth a spin for both these extras.
