Powered by Realistic Games, Fireworks is a five reel video slot with three rows and just ten fixed paylines; the design differs from many video slots in that it doesn’t look realistic, yet it does appear colourful with loads of bright icons set against a backdrop of silhouetted skyscrapers at night and exploding fireworks in the distant dark sky.
The visuals in Fireworks is straightforward – with the reels set against a city background and includes four lower-value gemstone icons with more medium-value ones like the bricks of cash, lucky sevens and gold bars. Along with the pink sevens, gold bars, piles of gold bars, the gems themselves are the colours white, blue, red and purple.
The firework symbol itself is the most rewarding icon – players who land five-in-a-row will be granted 250 coins or up to 5,000 times a players bet staked. All of these icons that land fully stacked three-high will create more significant winning combinations. Furthermore Winning combinations have to be on an active payline, but they don’t have to start from the left-hand side.
Sadly there are no unique icons here, no scatters, wilds, nada; however, there is an exciting bonus feature that rewards players frequently.
Bonus Features of Fireworks
Each time players spin the reels they will notice that there’s a lit fuse underneath; ideally, players will want this burning fuse to advance all the way to the right-hand side and light the firework. However, to do this players must land each reel with matching symbols. For example, all the icons in reel one match, all the symbols in the second reel match and so on.
If this does happen then, the feature begins and players need to hit the button to select a reel at random; the reel chosen will contain matching icons. All other reels will then respin, and each will include at least one of that icon for a guaranteed win.
Fireworks is a bright and colourful affair, the name is surely reflected in the game's visuals. However, it is not the most thrilling slot punters, and gamers will stumble upon as far as the gameplay is concerned. The bonus feature saves this game, offering players plenty of payout potential. Yet still again, it disappoints as it is hard to trigger but when it did players will undoubtedly receive some excellent payout results.
