What is this mobile slot about?

IGT’s first proper 5×5 grid slot, you can’t deny that this Fantastic Fireworks mobile slot looks good.

Grid slots are all the rage at the moment; from the king of grid games Play’n GO when they started it with Energoonz, to the latest big game in NetEntertainment’s Lost Relics slot.

However, this isn’t IGT’s first ‘all ways pays’ game where you get wins when 3 or more symbols are adjacent to each other; that would be the Bubble Craze slot.

But Fantastic Fireworks! looks fantastic, with cute little Kawaii fireworks smiling at you as you spin and watch those fireworks explode in a dazzling display of wins.

You get special symbols and they stay until you get a win

This might not look as pretty as Play’n GO’s Sweet Alchemy, but it’s got a similar variance, easier wins, and the features are far more persistent.

A 4 of a kind win will give you a symbol that explodes adjacent symbols, whilst a 5 of a kind win creates a super wild… and so on.

All little extras that help build up your stack, especially as the only way to do that is through a chain reaction of wins, and that persistence pays.

The Fantastic Fireworks slot has ‘floating reels’

Floating reels were introduced in the Balloonies slot and when you get a win, the fireworks explode, and more symbols float from below.

Basically, a reverse avalanching reels feature.

What makes these symbols interesting is that, if they are not used after your winning symbols explode, they stay on screen until they are part of a win.

So you can collect multiple of these symbols, which you need to catch those 20x your bet win.

Collecting the 2 bonus games is annoying

If we have one little criticism is that to trigger one of the two bonus game features you have to collect 20 rocket symbols. Which is very slow going.

And once collected you’ll probably trigger the click me bonus game which, again, rarely pays more than 20x your bet. The free spins are a little more ludicrous because every spin gives you an exploding bonus symbol.

To be honest, it’s only a small criticism because, at the end of the day, the base game is fun enough even without the extra slot bonuses.

A good IGT slot game that deserves a few spins, especially if you are a fan of the matching symbols social app games.

In-game bonus features

Floating Reels Feature: Winning symbols float up to replace wins which have exploded on the reels.

Exploding Special Symbols: 3 or more adjacent symbols create wins, but four or more create special symbols.

They can be used right after a win, when floating symbols come back onto the five reels or, if they don't, they stay and move around the screen on every spin, until they are part of a win.

  • Chains of 4 symbols: create Boom symbols which explode all adjacent symbols.
  • Chains of 5 symbols: create Wild Super symbols that explode the most numerous symbol type remaining on the reels
  • Intersecting wins: create CrissCross symbols that explode their row and column

Rocket Meter and Bonuses: As you spin, you'll collect sparklers that fuel the rocket to the left-hand side of the reels.

20 sparkler triggers one of two random bonuses:

  • 8 Free Spins Bonus with exploding symbols guaranteed on every win
  • The Cannon Bonus lets you select 3 cannons and reveal cash prizes

Closing thoughts

We had good fun at this Fantastic Fireworks mobile game, especially as it's so easy to get those special symbols which make the base game so much fun, you won't notice you're not triggering the two main bonuses very often.

At heart, this is an easy-playing low variance slot machine that doesn't ask much of you; you have a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin but still has a maximum win of 10,482 times the coin value.

We don't think it will jump into players hearts the way the Gemix game has, but if you are a fan of IGT's Natural Powers slot, this is a good addition to your day to day slot play collection.
