In the UK fireworks are always set off on the 5th November to remember the events that unfolded on Guy Fawkes Night. Also known as Bonfire Night, this day celebrates the foiling of Guy Fawkes devious scheme to blow up the House of Lords way back in 1605 and Eyecon has perhaps a little predictably, decided to create a five reel slot based on this momentous day.
About the Developer
Eyecon shows great skill when creating slot machine games and they are always detailed and fully functioning with a lot of decent bonus content. We have played Fireworks Frenzy to the core to discover whether it is worth your time or hard earned cash. As a result, we have all the key information detailed below.
About the Game
The game plays across a fairly standard setup of 5 reels and 25 pay-lines with the game offering an extremely simple game interface of a black background with the fireworks themselves making up the bulk of the reel symbols. It is a simple yet effective setup and this will particularly suit new players looking for a new slot to play that isn’t too complicated.
Additionally, the game will suit new players in particular as it offers low betting options with the minimum bet being 25p and the maximum bet being a modest £2 so this game will probably not suit the more experienced slot players that are looking to win big.
In terms of design, the game is not too bad with a black background and brightly coloured reels and the reel symbols themselves are numbers and letters and various types of fireworks. It is bright and bold and the sound effects are ok as well although some players will definitely prefer to play with the sound turned off.
We firmly believe that a game can have the best graphics in the world but if it doesn’t have the gameplay to back it up then it will probably not succeed. Fireworks Frenzy has two main bonus features which are activated by some of the bonus symbols on the reels. The wild symbol is represented by the Catherine wheel which substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter which is represented by the Chinese cracker.
The first bonus is free spins and this is a popular choice among slot players. This is triggered whenever a player manages to land 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You can win 15, 20 or 25 free spins based on 3, 4, or 5 scatters appearing respectively. The second feature is the gamble option which risks your latest win by presenting two options. If you win you double your bet, if you lost your bet is lost!
This is a decent effort from Eyecon and players will be attracted to the design primarily. There are also some classic bonus features that enhance the gameplay and when you combines the graphics and gameplay, you have a pretty solid five reel slot.
