We’re crackers for this banger of a slot!
You can keep your Guy Fawkes and your 4th of July; the Chinese New Year is where it’s at for a fireworks display with a real bang. Wild Fireworks from PG Soft is a Chinese New Year celebration of light and life.
Nothing says Happy New Year quite like the spectacle of hundreds of fireworks launched into the night sky. The Wild Fireworks video slot opens with an explosion, while a modernised form of Chinese traditional music serenades you and Chinese lanterns float gently away in the background.
Wild Fireworks is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot offering an astonishing 243 different ways to win, and a maximum win of 20,000x your stake!
Once you have chosen your bet amount – via the + and – signs either side of the big gold spin button – you can either click spin, or choose auto spin to keep the slots rolling without giving yourself a click-related carpal tunnel. Pressing the lightning button will activate the turbo spin mode, for those of us with an extra short attention span.
The Chinese New Year theme continues in the design of some truly beautiful symbols. Each symbol, bar the scatter and face cards, is a different type of firework, like the highest paying symbol, a gold and purple Roman Candle with a lit fuse.
The second highest paying symbol is a cluster of red and gold firecrackers, the kind that are traditionally lit to ward off evil spirits. This is followed by two blue and gold cone-shaped fountains, two unlit green and gold rockets, and two red firecrackers bringing up the rear for the picture symbols. The symbols are rounded off with an A and K of the same value, and a Q and J with the same, lowest, value.
The scatter is a lovely soft pink and gold lotus blossom that glows with an inner light, while the wild is a set of three dragon-headed rockets, a firework based on the oldest known design of the multi-stage rocket, called the huo long chu shui (fire-dragon issuing from the water). The wild only appears on reels three, four, and five, and acts as a substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Blasting you with features from the get-go, Wild Fireworks offers stacked wilds, cascading reels, and a free spins bonus game with nudges and sticky wilds.
Landing three or more scatters across the reels will transport you to the video slot’s free spins bonus game. You get an initial ten free spins, but delightfully, every subsequent scatter that lands awards you an additional two free spins.
In this mini-game, stacked wilds that land halfway on the reels get nudged into place where they stick. Once you run out of free spins, the number of sticky wilds is tallied and can end up with some pretty big wins.
All wilds are stacked, and a 2x multiplier kicks in for every winning payline that includes a wild on reels three, four, or five.
Now, if those features haven’t sold you on Wild Fireworks, let’s not forget that this game also features cascading reels. If cascading reels are new to you, what this means is that whenever there is a winning spin, the symbols in that payline explode and new symbols automatically drop down. This continues as long as there is a winning payline. It’s a feature that lets you stack up those wins pretty quickly.
Okay, so your fingers are itching to get going. Just locate this game on any online casino in South Africa that offers PG Soft games!
Wild Fireworks can be played on mobile and desktop. The game is fully supported for IOS, Windows, Linux, and Android, and is widely compatible with most modern browsers.
With an RTP of 96.75%, you have a good chance of making your money back with this dazzling video slot. Medium variance means that Wild Fireworks has the potential to reward you with consistent wins of both high and low payouts. We like that Wild Fireworks is so well adapted for the mobile platform, and the designs and animation make for an enchanting distraction. However, the video slot doesn’t offer you much more than the average Chinese New Year themed game does. So, come for the designs, stay for the wins, but don’t be surprised if this slot doesn’t hold your attention for long.
