Introduction to Lucky Firecracker
As the name suggests, this is a game themed on historic Chinese fireworks, with traditional firecrackers, sparklers, rockets and lanterns all featured. Beginners and more experienced players alike will be quickly pulled into a fast-moving game that offers multiple ways to win and is especially generous when it comes to free spins.
Lucky Firecracker first impressions
Built using Microgaming software, this game has the slick look and great graphics we have come to expect from this developer. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it is quite heavy on the red and gold theme.
It is fun and engaging to play and the fact that it does not follow strict paylines makes it interesting; what’s more, the generosity when it comes to the free spins makes it seem exciting throughout.
Payout ratio (or RTP) of Lucky Firecracker slot
This game has an RTP of 96.19 per cent. This is an industry term that unfortunately does not mean you are guaranteed a win almost 100 per cent of the time - it is not that lucky a game! - but it does give a good overall indication of how likely you are to win compared with how much you bet. If you were to stake 100, for example, you would win back 96 on average; of course, this is an average only.
Lucky Firecracker slot graphics
The graphics on this game are pretty nice, as you would expect from Microgaming. The developers have stuck to a pretty traditional theme; however, the symbols featured come to life nicely and the overall impression is slick and sophisticated. This is no mean feat, as it could easily come across as dated and a bit naff; instead, the team has managed to put a modern spin on a pretty old-school concept.
The reels are set against a rich red backdrop, with gold lettering and Chinese symbols throughout. The symbols on the reels include a trio of firework rockets, a red paper lantern, traditional firecrackers and a golden medallion.
Lucky Firecracker game theme
Fireworks obviously originated in China many centuries ago; in addition, ancient Chinese culture has long associated certain symbols with good luck. In this game, these two elements have been combined to bring the idea of fireworks and luck together.
How to play Lucky Firecracker slots
This is a fairly straightforward and intuitive game to play. First, select your coin levels and the amount you want to bet. Coins are worth between 0.01 and 1.00 and up to 10 can be played per line. There is also a quick bet feature where you can choose from pre-set amounts to bet to save a bit of time and hassle: 0.25, 3.00, 11.25, 35.00, 100.00 and 250.00. This game also has an autoplay feature where you can set it to spin automatically either 10, 25, 50 or 100 times.
Once all these elements have been selected, simply spin to match between two and three symbols to win.
Lucky Firecracker game volatility
This is a medium volatility game, which basically means you are more likely to win smaller amounts regularly than to win one large amount. Although some players love to chase a big jackpot, others find it more interesting to have more regular chances to win; what’s more, regular smaller amounts can add up nicely!
How to win at Lucky Firecracker slots
The premise is pretty simple: match the symbols. This game even allows you to win just for matching two of certain symbols. The golden medallion, which is also the scatter, will see you get 250 for two, 500 for three, 2,500 for four and 25,000 for five. The three rockets award 120 for two, 300 for three, 3,000 for four and 30,000 for five. The red fireworks give you 70 for two, 200 for three, 2,000 for four and 20,000 for five.
Next is the lantern, with three getting you 150, four 1,500 and five 15,000. The sparklers see you get 12 for three, 1,250 for four and 7,500 for five. The firecrackers are three for 100, four for 1,000 and five for 5,000. The nine, ten, jack, queen, king and ace are the least valuable.
